  1. I’ve had a few letters and packages delivered open from the post office. It’s full of scum with no worries of loosing their jobs! They open packages they think might have money or gift cards with no repercussions. Some arrive open and who knows how many never do get delivered (cards from family with money or cards that you never knew about, so how many people are mad and never send more because they didn’t get a thank you because some asshat postal employee stole it)? With most mail being junk it’s easy for dirt bag gov employees to pick out personal letters and especially cards with something inside.
  2. My guess is he was some douche who saw your truck and was harassing you if he was just going back and forth. If that happens again film it and call the warden and he’ll regret his rude. behavior! Even if you shot a deer at sunset when it’s still pretty bright, the rule of thumb if you didn’t see it actually die is to wait at least a half hour before slowing getting down and sneaking up to the hit site. Then reviewing your shot from there wether to back out or not. So no matter what you’re still tracking in the dark. So sit till end of legal time and if you have deer around you then wait longer so you hopefully don’t educate them for next time.
  3. Good to know! So I was using the wrong terminology. I think of mass as two things being the same size but could be different weights. That’s why I was questioning you so much on it. I’m just a simple carpenter so don’t expect much from me haha. Thanks for my lesson today!!
  4. No room to chop them. Really appreciate the offer though! Going to stick with them this season. I really love the FMJ’s. They pull out so easily and give good penetration on target. I’m in north ocean county.
  5. Same size. The weight difference would create a different outcome. Isn’t weight and mass two different factors?
  6. 400 FMJ with 50g brass insert 125g single bevel two blade heads. 4 inch feather fletching with wrap and lighted nock. Coming out of a 28 inch draw Prime Defy (best bow I’ve ever had! About 6 years now). It’s a amazing setup but just want to try a stiffer spine with heavier heads to see what happens.
  7. So let’s throw both straight up into the air as hard as we can with a 10mph crosswind. The nail is going to go higher and the toothpick is going to land much farther away from the nail because of the wind sheer factor. Would that be correct?
  8. Shooting 500 right now with a 29 inch arrow and 15%FOC with 60 lbs draw weight. Looking to bump it up another hundred up front but the cost of testing is high and I’ve been having great results for many years with it. So next season maybe.
  9. I like your point of view but I think you’re leaving out a key point? I think you’re saying what it would do instantly after release. But what happens down range? The finish nail can be thrown farther and when it hits something it’s going to penetrate farther and or leave a bigger mark. The toothpick is going to loose momentum quickly and then any outside factors like wind is going to throw it off track more so because of the momentum loss. No one ever without but maybe a serious tailwind threw a toothpick farther than a finish nail. In all sincerity, am I wrong about that?
  10. I’ve been shooting heavy arrows for well over a decade, starting out tipped with muzzy 125. I’ve punched through a 2.5 year old bucks scapula with about ten inches penetration. That deer dropped in ten yards because the as he moved the arrow shredded his vitals.
  11. No hostility really. Yea it annoyed me a bit when you bashed my comparison so I started typing like crazy haha. I’ve read and watched hours and hours on the pros and cons. From what I’ve been seeing the past 4-5 years is a sway towards heavier setups with two blade coc.
  12. If you’re hitting scapula most likely the hits already too high. I’m thinking more leg bones on lower angle shots. With the right setups a quarter to shot isn’t low percentage at all it’s actually quite devastating! So IMO building a head for a gut/liver shot is a horrible idea because those heads make you aim farther back so bones aren’t hit. Few inches forward and animal isnt really going anywhere.
  13. The comparison is momentum and kinetic energy not whats going to passthrough haha but nice try trying to make me look dumb! What is carrying more energy down range and whats going to hurt more when hit with it or whats going to leave a bigger dent. Lets not split hairs over comparisons... but I'll humor you just because its what you want! Shoot a finish nail and shoot toothpick out of whatever, both same size and mass whats going to carry its momentum down range with more accuracy and penetrate? I think we all know the answer. I think a wider cut gives you less chance of a passthrough specially after hitting anything hard, mechanical blades are garbage steel and won't hold a edge and withstand bone hits so less hemorrhaging. I think most deer hit with a narrow head and clean passthrough are far more likely not to bolt off a hundred MPH. So the argument I hear for wide blades is for a plan B senario but they're only good for a farther back hit and not for any kind of bone or heavy muscle. Now a narrow head with a heavy properly tuned setup can destroy any bones it comes across and also if the hit is back in the liver and guts its not creating a shock that makes the deer runoff faster than maybe it would if something zipped right through. allowing again for a potentially easier recovery. The amount of video out there of wide blades only making it halfway through a deer on a broadside ribcage shot are disturbing IMO! Wide cutting broad heads don't put deer down faster and jury is still out if they actually create better blood trails. So enlighten me on how a light flimsy spined arrow with a 2 inch wide head, little to no FOC thats going to flex like crazy taking away penetration is better than a heavy head setup with high FOC, stiffer spine and a slimmer head pulling through the animal rather than pushing isn't better? IMO hunters using light weight setups with big heads are poorly educated on the subject.
  14. Arrows aren't bullets and I'm sure you know a arrow kills by hemorrhaging (not by energy in the sense you're meaning, though more downrange energy means more KE and more momentum) and bullets kill more by shock. So the father a broadhead moves through the animal the more hemorrhaging thats going to take place, when plan A fails for a easy ribcage pass through plan B is to make the arrow work in the hunters favor. Maybe even getting a passthrough after hitting bones. Pass throughs lead to better blood trails. Too many guys way under think a heavy arrow and way over think speed for flatter trajectory. What would you rather be hit with, a golf ball or a pingpong ball? Its a arrow, not a toothpick
  15. Nothing better IMO. I enjoy every cut.
  16. There’s a reason lamb and veal are a special thing compared to mutton and beef! Wife went away for the weekend, that’s a awesome time for me and the lil lady. Let the man be free to live! Reverse seared rack o lamb, smoked for 40 minutes at 230 with apple wood to 115 degrees, let rest for 15 and sear it off over scorching coals. While lamb was resting and coals are coming to temp I cooked the corn with half husk on. Corn is done when husk has burnt off…. Amazing! Added some sautéed carrots, snap peas, garlic and spinach to top it off.
  17. Probably not weird but a odd combination not found anywhere…. But maybe one or two places from my loose lips haha My dad use to make me soft boiled eggs and bread as a kid. He would chop it up in a bowl, I loved it. Recently avocado toast has become popular so I came up with a variation of my dads dish using his method. I’ve named it a “Toasty Bowl”. Lil play on words Two soft boiled eggs Slice of bread heavily toasted (diced up) Half of a ripe avocado diced up Breakfast meat of your choice (optional) Salt, pepper and Texas Pete Mix it up in a bowl and enjoy!
  18. Oh I hate when I order a roast beef and they put that over cooked garbage on it! Now before I even order it I make them show me. I live miles from the original Jersey Mikes. Though they’ve set the standard for what a sub should be, there’s many places here that kill them since they franchised. From price, amount of meat and the bread. The really good places get the bread from NY.
  19. When I was growing up people thought I was crazy because I wanted my subs with oil, vinegar and Mayo. Now it seems to be common practice. Can’t count how many times someone commented “oil and Mayo” or gave me the confused look?! Yea oil and Mayo, I want my sub lubricated!
  20. It doesn’t matter, I can say the same about olives or mushrooms, they’re disgusting IMO but a common topping on pizza. Never tried pineapple on pizza but pizza is just a vessel and can be loaded with any kind of cargo one wants!
  21. It takes a real special person to think it’s better to pick up their dogs excrement and then throw it aside in a bag rather than just let the dog do it’s thing in the woods
  22. I take half of the husk off to where some kernels are visible. Grill it like that until all the husk has burnt off, kernels start browning and it IMO its sweeter and adds a nice smokiness to it.
