  1. Sadler had a rather "colorful" life after his musical fame and a sad end.
  2. I bought one to try turkey hunting years ago, bring it every year, never try it. (for the flies) Mostly it's been used in my driveway, laying under cars.
  3. Wondering who the pole manufacturer is? lol At one time I was told there were actually surprisingly few manufacturers of flag poles in the country. (when I briefly worked for one of them long long ago)
  4. Step 1. Target illegal gun dealers, get media on board. Step 2. Make anyone who sells a gun an illegal gun dealer.
  5. China could pretty much beat us without firing a shot. We got just a glimpse of reality with the covid shortages. Just imagine them shutting off the flow completely and for good.
  6. Another case of New York feeling inadequate. Trying ever so hard to keep up with California. Think about the condors! Oh wait...
  7. I think our turkey population is in bad enough shape already, without making it worse by making the season earlier. A number of states are paying the price for early seasons.
  8. Maybe the 'yotes ate all the ones that gobble? In the "old days" (old meaning just a few years ago), I'd go out before sunrise and just stand in the yard. Then listen for the gobbles from the surrounding hills and decide which way to go. Often there would be two or three directions to choose from. Those days are gone. In all seriousness, sadly if I do the math of gobblers vs howls/yelps heard over the last three years it would be 1 to... hundreds?
  9. No, it's the public's uninformed PERCEPTION of African trophy hunters that make us look bad. Someone paying many many many tens of thousands of dollars to a country's game commission to take an animal, money which goes towards conservation and protection of all the other animals,is decidedly NOT a bad thing. As a side off topic turn, for as few elephants as there are left in Africa, there are still too many elephants in Africa. (too many people, not too many elephants). Sadly they're their own worst enemy, remnants of another age. They reproduce slow (two year gestation), pretty mu
  10. I prefer the first week because the bugs are smaller.
  11. This is a topic I do not understand, mostly because of the conflicting information. Some people/websites say eat them before they flower (as in this thread). Others say after they bloom. Last year I steamed a whole bunch of their leafs (with some other vegetables), all picked from plants with full bloomed flowers, they were not bitter. This spring I picked some, all pre-flower and they were terribly bitter to to point of being uneatable. I'm starting to wonder what is fact and what is people's incorrect ideas. (I have no good answers)
  12. Bought it, sucked all the value out of it, while mostly ignoring it. Now they want to sell the name and the rights, but nothing tangible. That may actually be a good thing for true T/C fans, maybe some small entity can buy it and start producing what made them great, instead of plastic bolt actions. Slim chances are better than none.
  13. Warm weather or cold weather, toe socks. lol I bought a few pair of toe socks when I started working large shooting matches, walking all day long. My feet stayed dry and blister free. My feet are always drier and always cleaner at the end of the day when I wear them. I've had occasion to wear them for extending periods of time , work related "state of emergencies", where I ended up wearing them several days straight without being able to take them off. Yeah my feet still smelled, but my feet were miles less stinky and nasty than they would have been with regular socks. I have some re
  14. My late "update", nuffin. Six days, didn't hear a gobble. (add that to the 12-14? days last year) I haven't heard a bird gobble since May 1, 2019. I did see a few hens three days in a row, but no company. Of course I saw birds all over the county, just not where I hunt.
