  1. Forgot it was this weekend.Should have gotten up early and gone .
  2. Contact DEC. See what they say. Harass the hell out of them . What ever it takes in the end .
  3. Wish they had showed a full video of the dumbass getting stomped and the after pictures.
  4. I would imagine that clear cut is 5 years old now . Dont have my pointers anymore and the Hickory nut trees are gone so I haven't been back in there since .probably making great deer cover . Perhaps a muzzleloader hunt back in there for late season.
  5. I don't spend near as much time small game hunting as I use to . Erwin state forest did a bunch of logging a few years back. Big patches of clear cutting . I was in there hunting the edges with a pistol and bumped quite a few grouse. Looked to me like it was 2 year old clear cut so I would imagine its prime . Problem for me was they took out my favorite grove of hickory nut trees and I was there hunting squirrel.
  6. I bought a bunch after 2013 safe act. There was a guy at the Syracuse show selling winchester primers for $30/k. I dont shoot as much as I use to but I am still well stocked. I have a family member that travels south and he picks me up stuff from time to time. Seems the southern states don't have the problems we do in NY.
  7. One thing I do miss is the gobbling fools. Last 2 birds I killed never gobbled after fly down . Back in the 80s and 90s you couldn't shut them up. Only real common denominator is increase in coyotes.
  8. If you were at the DeBruce club you have to expand on that ... how was the fishing ? Just not right mentioning the DeBruce club with no comment to the fly fishing .
  9. I was into it back in my teens and early 20s . Was a good time . Was a pain the butt finding somebody to take the carp. All went away when I met my wife . Working three jobs to help support 3 step kids in my instant family took all my spare time and alot of my sleep time .
  10. Kroil is a true miracle worker for freeing up heat stressed and rusty bolts . Also works to keep rust off tools in the garage. I run a spirits of that in all my air tools also.
  11. Thats cool you have the skills to do that . As an industrial mechanic I can do basic machining . I always wished I could take that up as a trade but the opportunity never presented itself. Looks like a fun project. Interested in seeing the results.
  12. I like it ... I have been looking for something like that to hold my scoped revolvers. Most wont hold a longer barrel or the weight of a big bore revolver and a scope.
  13. Not sure where you at but I don't want that snow . I'm over it ... looking forward to trout fishing.
  14. Got to love these open discussions. I'm all in if they let me use my single action revolver.
  15. Steelhead fishing fly tying and reloading. Will get after the garden in May. To be honest my job is kicking my butt. Up at 4 am, at work by 5:30. Getting out most days 4 to 5 pm. Never seems like I get enough sleep. Hopefully things will change.
  16. I have been there a few times mostly to look at the fly fishing which I had hoped to be more involved. Same people stirring. Most action over there is about weed... go figure.
  17. I almost ordered a new ice hut this year. Put it off because the prices jumped so darn high ... should be a bunch on sale .... I should probably be looking now.
  18. Yup great weather minus the 25mph winds . Problem is my apple trees are pushing buds and will probably get frosted again this year. With no real snow pack and warm weather I see another hot dry summer . We could really use a decent spring with some rain. We are still way off the water table norms . Have been thinking about putting in a big patch of sweet corn but I don't want to have to water it all summer long .
  19. 40 foot drifts ... they were probably finding body's in August.
  20. Pretty cool . Never actually seen an otter in the wild . Imagine the local fish pop will get better.

    This doesn't look like the coyotes that we learned about in trapping class in the 80s .
