  1. FullSizeRender.mov FullSizeRender.mov This year was the toughest hunting on my farm since buying it in 2012. With the record setting rains this spring my farm did not get planted. Normally I’d have corn or beans to hunt over but this year I had 9ft tall weeds and hardly any deer. My food plots also looked terrible, so it wasn’t looking very good. The cameras were disappointing all summer long with not one shooter buck over 140” so I went into the season with very low expectations. I pulled cards again upon my arrival on November 5th to reveal a few pics of just an abs

  6. The boys came back from college for Thanksgiving. Eager to hunt I decided to take the boys out with Briar for some bird hunting. Well as usual Briar didn’t disappoint, running birds were no match for the relentless pursuit these flushing dogs display. The little powerhouse made sure every bird eventually flew

  10. Well, things finally came together today! It's been some hard hunting over the last couple weeks trying to wait this buck out day after day. He first showed up on cam 11/04 and in daylight no less! I've chased ghosts here for years, it's extremely rare to ever see one other than a random single appearance on cam some arbitrary 2:00AM night, nevermind get a shot at one. I said to myself this was the buck I was dedicating the rest of my season to, so I spent the next 9 days of my vacation chasing him on any good wind I could, and even gambled on a few marginal winds hoping to get lucky.

    Happy Thanksgiving

    Take a moment and pause and be thankful to God for a blessing in your life. There is always something good no matter how bad things may seem. Sometimes it's just hard to find

  15. Not necessarily true.. zone 18 ended the 24th, zone 21 ended the 23.. so you can not give him the correct answer until you know what zone he hunts

  18. I believe with the reallocation the North is now being stocked differently. Not all fields being stocked every stocking, instead rotating and more birds in one area than another on a given day. This gives mixed reviews from hunters, pick the right field and you say the state is doing better this year, pick the wrong one and you go empty handed. Get off the fields and start hunting the thick, nasty, wooded and swampy areas. We are doing well in those locations. After this windy day these areas will be full of birds tomorrow. Tougher hunting but it is where the birds are.

  19. Snapped this pic at Clinton WMA this morning. Waiting for start time, handlers to my left yelling at their unruly pointer, others barking and yelping non-stop pulling their handlers around and others even getting into tussels with other dogs. Yet there my Briar sits motionless scanning the field for any movement waiting for the command to go get some. Years of work paying off.

    Arrowheads

    Been working on this for a while now, between hunting. Glad it took me a long time. It gave me the time to come up with a better idea then just putting them in rows. Decided to try making them into art. I kept the heads found around the wallkill river mostly in the arrowhead design, except for a spearhead or two that I used in the headdress. Portrait was from Paulinskill river area , Lincoln park area, and other places. My only wish now would be to be able to give them to my father so he could enjoy looking at what he started. He just had them in the basement, piled up in coffee cans fo

    Hunting Camp Meal

    My mother wants to take a stab at Thanksgiving dinner this year, so we decided to humor her. Never had much luck in the wind, so I stayed in this morning & made a meal in advance for deer camp in PA...fried squirrels, biscuits, gravy, greens, & stewed okra. Heading up tomorrow for a last hurrah with my dog for fall turkey, then bright & early Saturday I'll have a rifle in my hands. Good luck to anyone else who is heading out there!!!

    Just saw they bumped up the snow numbers for Sunday and Monday in Taylor Ham country. They were calling for 1-3 inches each day now it's up to 3-5 each day . Get those blinds ready and make sure to prop the roofs up so they don't get trashed . Good luck all .

  27. Possible foot or more up here. Going to screw up my son's vacation days because he'll have to stay home with the kids while his wife works. Should be fun hunting. Heavy snow is going to lay down the high weeds where they like to hide. Looking forward more to Tuesday.

  32. May sound crazy, but vacuum it out. Happens to mine from time to time, some debris from the flue and dust accumulation screws with the ODS and the pilot won’t stay lit. Pull the cover and use the vacuums crack and crevice tool to clean under the burner and all inside there. Worth a shot.

  33. Got bored with the all black so I decided to paint my Tikka t3x. I did it in a GAP Camo pattern and used sponges. Sprayed it first with a brown base then sponged with khaki and olive drab krylon ultra flat spray.

  34. Tom, if you filled both your gun and bow buck tags then your done for this year. As I’m sure you already know, no matter how you add it up your only allowed two bucks a year in illinois. In future years if you fill your POH archery buck tag early, you can go buy a 2nd either sex non resident archery permit and kill your 2nd buck with archery equipment.... but if you fill that 2nd buck tag your firearm buck tag is no longer valid. I confirmed this with the game warden and keep his text on my phone to show anyone that may questions it.

  35. You need to skin back the feathers until you expose all meat, then remove it (along with as much fat, etc as possible). Then use Borax to bug proof (you don't want any bad bugs coming in the house and eating other mounts, etc. Here is a link to a good video using a turkey tail, but you may not need bondo, epoxy Hope this helps!

    Venison Nachos

    Figured I'd throw something quick, easy, and tasty together for dinner. And here it is. Layer of chips, then your cooked ground venison, then cheese, jalapeños, tomatoes, onions, chives, etc.. and throw in the over at 350 for about 10-15 min. Yum.

  46. Legs are done. Pulled at 170. I'll put them in fridge and sear on the gas grill just before dinner at 4pm. I'll make Lentil soup this week with any that are left over. 12 pound bird, I'll put on at 130. Hoping today it will cook in 1.5 hours but have the extra hour for insurance. Will transport in a cooler with towels for the quick drive to dinner. Will quickly reheat in aluminum pan on grill.

  47. Hey Rutt.. I don't have a dog and have been on the not getting a license bandwagon. I hunt Black River. You are correct the Stocking is different this year. There is a rotation between the lots. If you choose wrong there will be few if any birds. I can say at BR, if you have a dog with a minimum amount of skill, you can do well there after 10am on stocking days. I have seen it this year guys and their dogs are doing well. Also, I would consider The Gap. Several guys here are making a killing there. I understand the rant but before abandoning Public for private the State is forcing changes on b
