  1. I was sitting here going over all the topics posted and there were so many unrelated to hunting, I got bored and starting thinking about years past hunting with my father and thought I would post a picture of the last deer he harvested back around 1994 before is lost his battle to cancer. He loved Surf Fishing and deer hunting and was my inspiration all my life. He was a ruff gruff mason who took no shit from no one. He loved to play cards and shoot crap but most of all he loved his sons and grandsons, we were a family of all men until some girls were born to our children.

  11. Grass lawns are an environmental abomination. You all should be ashamed of yourselves. Lawns originated in Europe where the climate is wet and mild. We don’t have the right climate for lawns here so we have to dump tons of crap and water on them to get them to grow. Just mow it and let nature fill in the plants that should be there. If your lawn isn’t good habitat for rabbits and finches then I don’t like you anymore.

  14. I can grow grass like a carpet. I traveled for two years and then broke my elbow last year and my lawn has gone to hell. If you don't maintain it, it fizzles out quickly. My first recommendation is to know your soil, hence the pH question earlier. Once you determine that you can figure out what to add to the soil. The next thing is to put down an herbicide and kill every plant including the grass and till the soil in the fall. You may have weeds that are rhizomes and are a pain in the ass to get rid of (hello, yellow nutsedge). Treat your soil to balance the pH and then seed. Weed seeds do not grow in the fall but grass seeds will germinate all the way down to a 50°F soil temperature. By seeding in the fall (and I mean early to mid September) the grass gets a head start and the roots can grow over the winter. In the spring you want to put down fertilizer that contains stuff that prevents seeds from germinating. This stuff will last from early April until July. It's like magic, no weeds will sprout on your lawn, and the grass will thicken in the spring. Watering is tricky. Water a lot in the fall to get the grass seeds to germinate, however, you only want to water up to 1" of water per week. Watering a few times per week versus all the time will train the grass roots to go deeper into the soil. This is important and it helps keep the lawn green in the summer. Also, you're not growing grass, you're growing turf. What is turf? Turf is a layer of decomposing material that is about 1/4"-1/2" on top of the soil. You create turf by using a mulching mower. All of the grass clippings go back into the lawn to decompose. You want to keep this layer of decomposition healthy. That in turn will keep your lawn healthy. The layer acts like a barrier to hold moisture in the soil and prevent weed seeds from getting to the soil and germinating. Anything organic can be used to feed your turf. In the fall I don't rake the leaves. I go over them several times with the mulched, and literally within 2-3 days the lawn eats them. So grow your turf and it will help your grass grow and remain healthy. Set your mower to 3" in height. You want your grass to be tall so the layer of turf forms and is healthy. Cutting your lawn too short will stress out the grass and cause it to dry out and focus more on blade growth than root growth. You want to encourage root growth so the lawn thickens. Never cut more than 1/3 of the grass length or else your grass will focus on blade growth. This means you may be cutting your lawn every 3-4 days in the spring when it really grows. I also use a fertilizer called Milorganite. https://www.milorganite.com It's 100% organic. Golf courses use it. And when you apply it, your lawn turns an emerald green like you've never seen before. It's not cheap either. But it won't burn out your lawn, mess with water supplies, or anything else like that. You can use it to fertilize your garden too. Safe for pets/kids/etc. There's a lot to it, but once you get the hang of it, maintaining it isn't too bad. My lawn used to look like this, and by this time next year it will look like it again.

    Vaccine

    The vaccine is also avoidable by living naturally in Alaska You can't avoid everything, such as pollution and virus exposure if you live in condensed areas. But I do understand your point about the line between forcing vaccinations and tying essential (practical standard of common living) aspects of daily life versus making it a free/optional choice. IMHO everyone needs to weigh their risk and choose the path that they feel best suits them. At one point when vaccines weren't available, others could potentially impact unvaccinated people. Now, with vaccines readily available, people have the choice to take it if they feel it lowers their risk versus not taking it and I personally don't believe anyone should be forced to take the vaccine if they don't want to because they're no longer elevating the risk for others (who also have the option to get vaccinated if they feel it lowers their risk).

    If you zoom in on him you will see he has battle scars all over his face and the base of the rack is very thick. He should turn into a good shooter.

    Trailering Tips

    Most Safty chains are inky rated for 3K . so if a boat wants to go it can pop that chain easily . wet bottom boat , and wet rollers it’s very easy to have the boat come off . Absolutely should have had tie downs on the back . I use a 10k ratchet strap to secure the front of my boat when trailering, not just rely on the Safty chain

    Vaccine

    The wife got the shots and it was her choice, I choose not to get them and we both agree we are not having our kids get the shoots either. This is the way things should be, personal decisions made by you and not forced upon you through the government, media or any other nameless faces. People need to make choices by themselves for themselves and others need to respect their choices and move on. Tired of hearing about this virus and how the world is ending and tired of hearing about this vaccine and how its saving the world. The virus wasn't nearly as bad as it was claimed to be and the vaccine is to new and untested for me to put it in mine or my children's bodies. Anyone who gets vaccinated I respect their decision the same way I respect my wife's decision to get it, as I expect the same respect back for choosing not to get it.

  33. I know how to have a great lawn, but I could not possibly care less. I used to - realized was a slave to it, and putting bad stuff into the ground to accomplish it... For what? My yard is 30% real grass, 30% clovers and broadleafs, 20% dandelions and rest are assorted weeds and of course the dreaded summer crab grass. It's all green after its mowed. The rabbits and deer and other animals like the clovers, dandelions and broadleafs. The environment does not care much for me dumping a boatload of chemicals to have a pure green grass lawn. No thanks Scott's, TrueGreen, or Chemlawn. When I stopped caring about my lawn over 15 years ago, I started catching more and bigger fish, and shooting more mature bigger bucks. Why? Because I am not wasting time caring about what my lawn looks like... Pure and simple. After it's mowed, looks great how it is, it's all green "something".

  36. Mine too. It’s the perfect blend of clover, mugwort, plantain, and dandelions. It’s always lush and green and it never needs water, fertilizer, or any chemicals.

    Does anyone have nice grass?

    I completely replaced my lawn in early September, too. One reason being the extreme heat of the summer. It puts our established lawns into varying degrees of dormancy ... but is really tough on young grass. Doing it in early September the grass has the perfect growing conditions of fall, and then the following spring, before the harsh summer heat comes. It was kinda fun turning my lawn from a disaster to a real nice one. Good luck.

    The winch strap broke on me twice. With age it gets brutal. I bet he did not put the chain on, which you should do right after the boat is winched in
