    Rabid raccoon bites youth turkey hunter

    Good post Odysseus. Rabid animals have been spotted in alarming frequency recently out here in eastern NY, we should all be cautious out there.

    Hunter Ed course and hunter #s

    I agree. I will be doing the same thing in a couple years when my daughter is old enough to start hunting.

    Go to Mass DEC website. Purchase Non-Resident Squirrel hunting license for $20.00. Print out license. Go to Wal Mart and purchase NYS Hunting Licenses.

    Most Accurate 7mm-08 Factory Ammo

    FWIW I have owned and hunted with the 7mm 08 for over 10 years, it likes just about everything I run through it from Remington green box to Federal Fusion. I use 140 grain just for the stopping power, the recoil from this caliber is negligible to me. This past two seasons I have been running Hornady SST in 139 grain, and my shot groups have tightened by almost a quarter inch and the deer I shot from 60 yards was dead in under 30 yards, despite the less than perfect shot placement on my part. It is mostly personal preference, but if you have the extra stew to pony up Hornady is probably the most consistent and well made factory ammo IMHO. If I am going after deer, SST's are perfect. Larger game where you need a more solid bullet construct, like for bear or Caribou, they make a GMX class of bullet just for bigger game. Hope this helps.

    Legal Weed and Gun Owners

    No he did not as far as I know. Albany county judges dont even want to issue a premises permit, so when they get the chance to revoke a permit they jump all over it. I am so glad I was able to move my permit to Schenectady.

    Legal Weed and Gun Owners

    Under the SAFE ACT, if a doctor ever prescribes you anti-depressants they have to fill out a form and turn it in to the State Police so you will be red flagged if you ever try to buy a gun in NYS ever again for the rest of your life. If a vet comes home and goes to the VA to treat his PTSD, he has just effectively forfeited his 2A right in NYS for the rest of his life. Stuff is draconian and sick.

    Legal Weed and Gun Owners

    It was about a quarter ounce. Pulled over for tail light, NYSI expired previous month and one thing led to another and he had a laundry list of tickets. Nothing big enough to arrest. He said when he was asked to exit vehicle officer took his wallet and that is probably how he knew to inform judge about the encounter. After he appeared and paid the fines, he got informed his permit was pulled. Good guy, too. Wasnt toking and driving. Just forgot to get his car inspected and didnt know he had a taillight out. Could happen to anyone of us. I would imagine if he wasnt in possesion of the reefer the judge would have never heard of the incident.

    I have seen guys with possession tickets lose their pistol permit and all handguns yes.
  10. No, the ruling and associated AMICUS brief said just the restriction alone is unconstitutional, beacause 10+ round mags are so common. No getting around that. I wanna see how it effects the semi auto bans like the SAFE ACT, since it bans the AR, which is one of the most popular, if not the most popular sporting rifle in the country...
  11. This just came down last night. Cali has basically the same mag ban we do, federal judge ruled it violates Heller. Only a matter of time before our law is changed, sooner rather than later!

    I couldn't even watch the video. Just pisses me off that A.) Some "people" do think this is acceptable behavior, and B.) The humane society feels the need to smear all who partake in our great sport by releasing the video. I mean, they didn't just get this from a leak, they actually took the time to file a FOIA request. I have some sympathy for someone who poaches a deer here and there because he cannot afford food from the grocery store (out where I grew up it was quite common) and needs to feed his family, but these @$$holes are just killing for sport. Complete disrespect for the lives of the creatures God created for us.

    My soon to be new to me truck.

    Cost wise it is the right call, practicality-wise it is the wise call. All i can think about when I think about 20s is my partner stuck in the parking area of our lease spinning the wheels of his $60,000 Silverado LTZ and me in my 9 year old honda driving off down the driveway LOL
