    Lost our friend of 12 years today. Had a good long life but cancer finally took her. Too weak to walk this morning. Was a great companion for our family. If you took her hunting, you knew where you could find her after the guns started going off, under the truck, hiding from the gunshots! lol My fault, bad training. Well, no more pain she is at rest. Just thought I would give her a little write up to celebrate her life. Thanks for looking.

    My 12 year old son caught his biggest fish ever yesterday off the surf, 6.5’ bull shark estimated 175 #. Was a lot of fish for a little guy. 1/2 hr fight later ended with a great LEGAL release and a great memory. Really proud of him. Nothing better than that drag screaming and salt in the air!!

    Heavy and invasive ivy took over the side portion of the garage for too many years. A few weeks ago, I decided to rip it all down exposing the concrete wall. Instead of wrapping it with stone, my wife wanted to find old windows to hang. Covered the concrete with a fresh coat of paint last week. A buddy has a large collection of vintage windows stored in his barn and gave us 3 to use for this project. The glass panes were shadowed with black paint before hanging the windows... Some pics attached below of before and after. Amazing how strong and invasive the ivy was. Going to attach metal flashing pieces over the windows next week to give the top of the wood some protection..

    Ran up to Fluke Nirvana this week with my brother, son and 2 buddies. Epic trip. My son jigged up a 10lb 10 oz doormat on an 8 oz Berkeley Whammy. Boat limit of 30 slammers up to 12 lbs 8 oz. My friend Glenn got his PB 8 LBs 8 ounces. 2 doubles, several 9s and 8s.

    My daughter and grandkids came over for an afternoon in the pool on Monday...as they were getting ready to leave....I had the kids put out corn in front of my backyard trail camera.......As I went to check on them....they were walking across my tennis court, with 2 bucks walking step for step with them...their faces were priceless !! My daughter joined them as they all sat down to feed the deer. It was amazing to see how close the deer came and they almost ate right out of their hands....These 2 bucks come into the yard at least twice a day.........What an experience for me and the kids !!

    Been working on my property here in Nj a few years now. Trying to mold it into my own little whitetail paradise. Being able to live on the property now, I get to spend a little more time on enhancing the habitat. 1st 2 years I did some hinge cutting, planted apple trees and started clearing some land for food plots. This is year 5 now. Apple trees all have apples on them this year. A couple different varieties including crab apples with staggered drop times from summer to late fall. Ive been trying to improve the soil with lots of lime. Never fertilized any of my plots until this year. This year Im also installing exclusion cages to monitor food plot activity. Installed 2 water holes early on, I have 2 mineral sites going. Planted lots of clover. My big plot is ringed with a 1o to 15 ring around the perimeter. Soybeans were just planted in the remainder. I have a small plot 1/4 acre in size in all clover tucked in the cover. Looks like a good fawn crop this year, Im seeing several sets of twins daily. Now its time to watch things play out, watching them grow and see whats around to hunt this year. I didnt take any deer off the property last year. Hopefully a few survive the local farmers this year. Thats the biggest problem in my area. We will see what this year brings.

    This has been a painfully 7 weeks but finally finished this morning. The paint on my decks has been peeling for the last two years and since I got to play Mr.mom during this coronvirus thing I though it be a great idea to redo them... i completely sanded everything off, washed them , primed and put two coats of paint down ...never ever again will I do another deck like this , I'm rebuilding with plastic next time their up for repairs..lol ,I'm happy with the results and that it's done now but it just sucked . Playing with weather, all the trips to home depot and harbor freight , working in-between my daughters naps and sons school work plus from sun up to sun down on weekends. Ended up costing me 3 times what I though but once I was into it I wasn't stopping...can't wait to now just sit and drink beer on them.... took pictures along the way.

    I'm not a political guy but I've had enough. Our Law Enforcement Officers are being treated like garbage. Three of our local policeman were once children on my youth sports teams. These kids came from great families and are great young men . Our Town just had its second protests, most of the protesters were from out of town. The scum cursed at every policeman they saw. Well I made it a point to go up to each and everyone of the local police and thank them for what they do. Others saw what I was doing and joined in, before long there were 20 or so pickups driving around doing the same thing. That night I got a call from one of the parents of a young man that I used to coach . His mom said that what we did put faith back in what they were doing for the community. Guys...it doesn't take much effort to let your local police you know you got their back. Just a thumbs up will do wonders! Dan Healy

    So I went to Kansas this past weekend to check my cameras, move a couple stands and visit with my good buddy who I lease my property from. All these bucks made it through hunting season so there is a chance I could see them again. I didn’t get many velvet pictures because I had some camera issues. I have 10 cameras out now so hopefully I will have some good pictures come November. No giants on camera but, there is always deer moving and by November there are always a couple good bucks to chase.

    Met @buck154 at 5:45 in Leonardo with my boat, and brought my cousin-in-law / neighbor along as well. He is a newb to fluking but of course caught the biggest! Forecast actually did EXACTLY what it said. It was very overcast and slightly snotty with a steady 10mph NE wind, but great drifting conditions for inside the bay. We tried several drifts off the Earl - sucked as it has all season. Tried some spots in and around the channels, still sucked then hit the rips which were boiling with hickory shad (think they are hickories) that were eagerly striking small deadly dicks and even bare hooks. I thought shad were strictly plankton feeders but these were loaded up with small rainfish and spitting them up. Did several fluke drifts i there and only a few shorts. So far, fluking just bad bad bad. Contemplated heading to Rockaway reef - 14 miles straight into NE slop. Weather started to improve. Called @MGHunter66 who was doing well with 2 keepers and lots of shorts toward the back bay. Thought about making run to Triangle area- maybe we should have but I wanted to go to the Shewsbury Rocks to Rattlesnake area instead. The 11 mile run wasn't too bad was able to average 20mph in that slop but nearly got airborn a few times. We had sporadic action just east of the rocks and all the way to Rattlesnake. Had one spot that we marked when my cousin-in-law got the best fish of day - a nice 23" so Buck154 hit "mark" on the GPS and we never forgot that spot.. In fact - it will forever be entered in my GPS as "Todd's Puke Rock" . Right after landing the fish, me and John went back to fishing while Todd was getting re-set... We started hearing gagging and definitely the word "Ralph" and we were like WTF how is this possible...???? Todd lost his breakfast. His dinner. And possibly yesterday's lunch and breakfast. He may have lost part of his intestines too - not sure. Wow... Just wow... Anyway - the rattlesnake was only good for one keeper for John. every time we went back to "Puke Rock" we had instant action in such a localized area. Usually one of us got stuck on the same rock every time we started that drift. John got his best of day later on at 22", he was farting around and I saw the fluke hit, John grabs rod and hooks the rock... The fish got it out of there fortunately. He did his job and got his limit 18.5, 19.5 and 22". I got a 21.5" and dropped a 22-23" at the surface. Truth be told, I thought it might be a keeper, but didn't call for the net (it was in netting range) because I called for the net on a 16.5" earlier and didn't want to be embarrassed again. The fish looked at me and laughed and let go of the naked 6" fire tiger gulp and swam away. Anyway - the weather ended up being so nice, really liking my boat and how it's laid out. Very nice on the drift - very stingy on gas... Ran about 50 miles overall possibly more on 13 gallons. Again the weather forecast was right and wind shifted later to SE and we had a nice following sea for ride home at 25-30mph. I was worried the NE to E forecast would have been 15-25 instead of the 5-10mph, and they got it right for once. We had enough action to make it fun with shorts many just unders of course, and if I didn't suck so bad at this would have had even more meat in the box. Pictured is my infamous JH bouy off the Earle where we started our first drift of day. Without a hit. Also a guy fishing off the rips with his spinning reel upside down. We all groaned - like fingernails on a chalkboard. Also a nice squid Todd caught and John rigged up a bottom rig. Was expecting great things on that but a rock ate the entire rig. A good day!

    With all the negativity going on in our country and the world, and frankly being posted on this site, I wanted to share something I feel each and every one of you should watch. How did I come across this? I joined my company's diversity task force. We are having honest conversations about race and what we can do as humans to improve things- rather than complain about it. I wanted to be the lone "angry white male" on this panel just to show that I am probably to them, stereo-typed as well. Anyway my boss shared this video for us all to watch and I was simply blown away. WATCH SOMETHING UPLIFTING AND POSITIVE!!!!

    Finally got out to do some bass fishing this weekend. I hit Spruce Run on Father’s Day with my son. We each only caught one but it was great being out there. Bass were tough to find in the heat. I then took my Father out today to my favorite lake in “zone 5” and we hit them pretty good on jerk bait in deeper water. Another great day! Also caught a snapping turtle on a top water torpedo Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Had this little guy stuck in fence row behind house yelping Every time I went back I jump the doe and he go quiet. After the second time had some errands to run came home a few hours later and he was still carrying on walked back and jumped the doe, stood quietly for a little bit and he started making noise. found out where we was stuck in a rock hole in the old rock wall. Pulled him out and got him back down in the riverbed mom just picked him up and walked off with him. Funny but in two or three years he might be dinner LOL

    Left again well before ODARK THIRTY. great seas and little moonlight had me 70 miles off before the fireball came out of the eastern seas.. my buddy had left fish in the area the night before. got set up and was like a light switch . Whales and dolphins crashing bait .. one on , two on, three on, and four goes off . we clear the other 3 rods as those 4 reels are screaming line off . but instantly as the boat starts to slow we have a cluster fk and are tangled . Quickly making the right moves before we get burned off . 4 guys fight four tuna to boat side . but they aren’t blue fins , they are all yellowfins. quick work , and they are in the boat, bled and gutted. Then swimming in an ice slurry in the ice hotel.. set up again , a single yellowfin , then one more single going 6 for 6.. us releasing those 2 to fight another day , as one tuna each was plenty today . look at my watch it’s not even 7 am yet. looked around in the life for more tuna , but as boats started to show the bite was over. made a long run to the area that’s been loaded with bluefin the last week to find a ghost town. stopped at a few other spots finishing at 1 without another sniff. still a great day out with Austin, Edward , and Chris.. running in on flat seas was just icing on the cake.

    Caught my limit in the river today bucktailing. A 22, 20, 18. Beautiful day. Also last night's dinner linguini and clam sauce from my clam haul the other day. Great to live in a land teeming with game and fish we have the freedom to catch. God Bless America.

    I took a long time fishing buddy of mine to the shore for some big fish surf fishing. He has NEVER seen a fish caught off the surf, lol! His first fish was a beautiful huge butterfly ray. Afterwards, the night was nonstop action with some big toothy critters (pics not allowed, haha). The morning brought some roughtail stingrays into the area. I landed a large one but lost a 2 hour battle to A giant ray that was estimated at well over 200#! After endless runs, surface explosions, and drag screams i lost the battle to this monster to a snapped line. I was physically exhausted but what an experience. It was great to see a lifelong freshwater fisherman introduced into the world of saltwater. We seen endless dolphins, a school of brown sharks explode on a school of bunker just 10 yards off shore, ospreys diving for bunker, etc. Great day!

    Well, I witnessed an event this morning that has renewed my (slightly shaken) faith in America, and has also reaffirmed that the majority of Americans do not feel the way the mainstream media portrays, or would have us believe. This morning I was bike riding the boardwalk in Wildwood with my wife and another couple. The boardwalk was packed with people on this beautiful day, just walking, riding bikes, and enjoying time with friends and family, actually almost felt normal again! Well, at 11:00 AM, an announcement came over the boardwalk speakers asking that everyone stop and remove their caps for the playing of the national anthem. From my vantage point I could see a good distance in both directions Up and down the boardwalk, and could easily see a few hundred people of all races and backgrounds. To my pleasant surprise, it appeared 99% of the people stopped in their tracks and enjoyed the playing of our national anthem, immediately followed by Kate Smith’s rendition of God Bless America, and then a loud round of applause. There were a few people however, that did not respond to the call to honor. I saw one man continue to walk through the standing crowd unfazed, along with one woman who did the same, and right in front of me was another man sitting on a bench, doing something on his phone, also unfazed by the crowd surrounding him all standing with hats in hand or hands on hearts. What was a bit disturbing about this individuals unwillingness to recognize America, was that on the side of his hat, that was backwards on his head, was an embroidered American flag! You could see he was uncomfortable being one of the very few that was not honoring our country at that particular moment. Other then these few individuals, hundreds of loyal Americans showed that there are many more patriots in this country then there are radical extremists who would like nothing more then to destroy America and our way of life. So, I just thought many of you would appreciate this small sign that there is still plenty of American spirit out there, you just won’t find it on the nightly news...🇺🇸

    NOTE: I think there is a need for police reform. But, things are going way too far the other way. People are so binary in their thinking... A high school friend of mine who is a retired Baltimore City police officer posted below on FB. There is a lot of truth this: Now Hiring: Police Officer Are you interested in becoming part of the occupation with the highest suicide rate of any profession? If you choose not to kill yourself, you’ll be happy to know that a 2013 study published by the National Institutes of Health found the average life expectancy of a police officer to be 57. Does a divorce rate of almost certainty sound great to you? Well then, once you go through an invasive and detailed background check, physiological examination, physical examination, fitness test, written test and a 6 month long (often live in) boot camp style academy, you’ll be released to the streets where uncertainty and possible death wait around every corner! Before your first tour of duty, you can look forward to being issued used and often expired body armor that may or may not fit well but will still “probably” stop a bullet. A used firearm, sometimes 20 years old or older with no maintenance record will be what you depend upon for your life. Rest assured that more often than not your equipment will be whatever was cheapest! You will be trained to the state MINIMUM standards, gray areas will often be entered in training as your given a poorly photocopied and dated handout to read on your own time for your official training. Sometimes you will go your entire carrier without getting a refresher on some of the courses you had in the academy! But that’s not all! - How would you like to work 6 days on, 2 days off - Rotate to midnights every 2 weeks - Weekends, holidays are a must, every year - Mandatory overtime, often with no notice! - Court on your days off - Natural disaster, blizzard, pandemic – forget your family, home and personal safety and get to work slacker. - Morning and or afternoon court on your midnight rotation (Sleep??….Suck it up butter cup!) - An entry-level police officer starts off making $31,965 per year on average in the US according to reported salaries by Indeed users! Finally get that used car from 2003 you’ve been eyeing up! - You’ll have a split second to make a choice, but don’t fear! The Monday morning quarterbacks and Facebook lawyers will have your back and be sure to correct you with how they would have handled the situation better. - Eating at a restaurant? – make sure to request they hold the spit, shards of glass and rat poison - Dated equipment – by the rust old locker full! Some of which is known to cause crippling injury - (But it looks squared away and it’s the way we’ve always done it) - Risk everything for people who hate you – even if your killed – the lawyers will come after your estate and leave your wife and kids in the gutter. If the Lawyers fail, you’ll be a hero and your wife and kids will get a flag of medium quality from your local Lowes etc. to fill your void. But wait, act now and you’ll also get: - Assaulted and injured at a rate three times higher than any other profession - Be sent into Covid 19 areas with no training and no equipment! We’ve lost 121 officers this year alone, the next one could be you! - Dead Bodies, yeah you get to touch and smell them, be careful of the “poppers and leakers” - Rape victims, children beaten and molested – you get to see all their attackers get a slap on the wrist after spending weeks investigating the crimes! - Criminals you arrest, it’s a race you’ll always loose - no matter how fast you are at the paperwork they’ll be out faster. - Arrest someone’s kids for doing wrong? Don’t you have anything better to do? Be prepared to get berated on how petty, racist and worthless you are. Now you’re asking, how can this get any better? For a limited time, we’re also throwing in: - Family and friends exiting your life forever - The family and friends that choose to still speak with you will be sure to bring up how bad “this one cop was” at fun events like Christmas, kids birthday parties and family reunions. - Criminals and scumbags alike will use you to use the system. You’ll get put in harms way time and time again for their petty games and reckless antics. Use promo code (Oink) now and we’ll also include these bonuses: - Threatening your family (especially children) with murder and rape! - Pays cuts or frozen salaries - PTSD from decades of horrors like burned children, rotting corpses, getting shot at, violent attacks from the very people who called you for help, blood and guts from car accidents, people who use you as their means of completing suicide and more! - Racist - your background check made sure you weren’t, but as soon as you dawn the uniform you now are “Blue Hitler.” - Just remember that when the time for you to get greedy and ask for standard benefits or a pay increase, you’ll get the same answer we’ve been giving you for decades “ We really appreciate the hard work you do, but its just not in the budget this year.” BEST OF All If you’re selfless enough to do this thankless job – You’ll forever be in the debt and gratitude of millions of great Americans who love and support you. The silent majority whose trust you have earned and respect you have won. Hold the line, stay safe and God bless you!

    I like this stuff but never made it before. So I bought two Sockeye Salmon fillets, some salt, brown sugar and dill. The recipe calls for equal parts of salt and sugar, dill and pepper. You coat the fish on both sides, wrap it in foil, weigh it down with something and drain+turn every 12 hrs. It take 36 to 48, I did it in 36, hrs and its done. It came out great, good texture and flavor but little too salty. These fillets where very thin, not like the Atlantic salmon, so I think 24 hrs would be enough.

    A while back I posted about the two mounts I inherited from my grandfather-nice heavy bodied Western Monmouth/Northern Burlington County deer killed 40+ years ago: Yesterday after the first in person visit with my parents since all of this $#%& began I brought home the gun that killed both of those deer plus countless others not to mention pheasants, turkeys, geese, ducks and more: 1965 Browning Auto-5 12 Gauge Magnum My dad was 11 when my grandfather bought this gun brand new in '65 when they were still made by FN in Belgium and remembers how proud he was to own a gun designed by one of the greatest firearm designers of all time and built by one of the finest firearm manufacturers in the world. Can't wait to put a few rounds through it out back.

    Time for some positive messaging, and this one is a perfect fit considering it was achieved with the help of one of our very own members, @LPJR! Very well done by the Harding Township fifth graders, the Harding PD and Lou for coordinating the effort! Tremendous increase year to year on surpassing the target goals set for a great cause! Wish we saw more of this in the news instead of the constant negative! Link to article Thanks to Lou and all the great cops out there who go above and beyond for their communities! It's not all bad folks, far more good out there and this is a great example close to home for all of us!

    I left my house this morning and 500 yards down the road I spotted this newborn standing right on the edge of the road. I stopped my truck and as I was getting out the doe crossed the road right behind me. she walked away and the fawn wobbled along behind her. Pretty cool!

    Brought my son down to the Paulinskill this evening about a mile from our home to try some fly fishing. This was his first attempt with the fly. We did a little practice casting a month ago. His casting is pretty sketchy, so I didn't know how we would fair! lol Well, luckily we has a decent hatch coming off and some rising trout and he soon had a nice one hooked. After a little coaching and getting the trout on the reel we soon had him landed. I didn't have my net so, we handled the trout a little more than I would have liked, but I wanted to get a photo of his first! Then he had one snap him off and then he caught another just at dark. So, we had some fun. I caught a few also.

    • If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him. • Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America. • Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegal Mexicans voting in our elections are good. • It was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it. • Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote. • Sexualizing children is bad, but 11-year-old drag queens are good. • Illegals aren't required to show ID, but citizens can't buy cough medicine without it. • Citizens are fined if they don’t buy their own health insurance, and then they are forced to buy it for illegals. • People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves. • Inflammatory rhetoric is outrageous, but harassing people in restaurants is virtuous. • People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for useless degrees. • Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated. • Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate Central-American gang-banger who jumps the southern fence is welcome. • $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care for illegals is not. • If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free. • Politicians who say that the President is not above the law put illegal immigrants and themselves above the law. • People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President. • Illegals don’t pay taxes, but they get tax refunds.• We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, and it seems like a great plan to us. • Voter suppression is bad, but not allowing the President to be on the ballot is good. • Fourth-of-July parades are bad, but parades of women dressed as vaginas are good. • Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now. • Criminals are catch-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of THEIR rights. And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us "racists."

    My 2019 New Jersey Archery 🏹 Buck is complete and ready for pick up from the taxidermist. 24 inches is truly a wide and legitimate spread to look at, it really adds to his uniqueness! Shout out to Charlie Sahanas and his crew for performing the work! However, the most important thanks goes to my property owner, who has been gracious enough to allow me to hunt on his land for the last 9 years and to allow me to call him a friend. He also happens to be one of the nicest men I’ve ever met during my hunting career that’s given me the blessing to hunt on his property. Thanks Doc for always being so awesome, I’ll never forget it!

    I talked to my guide in Alaska last night. He said, as of now, we're good to go for my September hunt. Obviously, that could change but for now I'm excited. I have an Alaska Airlines Visa card that I've been building points on. I leave Newark on September 4th and return on September 17th. The round trip tickets cost a whopping $12.....for first class!

    Got out early to catch the tide,and avoid the crowds. Took my buddy Professor Glenn on this trip. He's always there to lend a hand when I'm in need of help around my farm and house. We hit them steady right out of the box and got our limits up to 23 1/2 inches. Gotta love bucktails! Almost hit a submerged hunk of piling in the river. Just saw it in the nick of time. We did the right thing and pulled it out, saving someone from a serious issue. Its my happy fishing time of the year!

    The title is a little vague so my apologies. I have available for FREE a youth tree stand safety harness that I would like to give to a parent that is a first responder or in the military (present or former). We truly appreciate those who keep us safe and what our police force is going through. I am trusting that whomever is going to take it is in the "public service" as stated here. It's brand new, never used, because my daughters and I have been knocking them dead from the ground in our blinds. Below is the ad from Bass Pro but the package that I have says it is rated from 50 to 100lbs (not 120 as in the ad). I'd like to see it taken by a parent who is looking to get their kid into the stand to show them the ropes whether they are hunting yet or not. Given that it's rated only to 100lbs you are probably looking at age 6-12 or so. I am located in Rockaway Borough in Morris County. Because I'm working from home, we can work out pick-up pretty easily. Regardless, there are several members on here that have helped my kids and I out with clothing, hunts or ideas and we want to show our appreciation by helping out the next group of kids. https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/hunter-safety-system-lil-treestalker-safety-vestharness-for-youth

    Drizzling all morning, so I went through pics from the past week instead of going out. Did some much needed thinning, grooming, and filing. Here's a few of the better pics...
