Merkel's Achievements

  1. No disrespect but if we don’t support Ciattarelli, then de facto, we’re helping to ensure Murphy wins. I realize NJ is very Democratic and Murphy has something like a 62% approval rating but….. I do agree with your larger point, little by little, democrats will whittle away at hunting opportunities.
  2. I hear you but I assure you that if people vote for democrats, we will get more attacks on our ability to hunt and own guns. Sometimes you have to hold your nose and pick the least bad candidate.
  3. Can’t go wrong with Browning; excellent battery life, good pictures, fast speed.

    According to the CNN article, “This could be referring to Asian people as being an invasive species, which is just a horrible connotation," said Charlie Wooley, the regional director for the US Fish and Wildlife Service in the Midwest region, where these fish are often found.” These people are nuts! Who on earth ever confused an Asian Carp with an Asian individual?

    I thought it was a joke but evidently not https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/18/us/asian-invasive-carp-rename-scn-trnd/index.html
  6. Yeah, the folks who manage the deer hunt in town gave me the ok to shoot them on-site. Unfortunately, I see them on camera and not so much when I’m in my stand.
  7. I live in Randolph. According to the town and PBA 403, a coyote attacked a person walking in one of the parks this afternoon. Haven’t seen the details yet. You are right; this is second incident. Last one bit 2 people and was rabid. As an aside, I hunt one of the parks in town and have seen a spike in coyotes on camera the last 2 years.
  8. Remington 700 BDL with DM chambered in 30.06. I got into guns in my mid-20s and didn’t know that I should have started with something lighter… LOL

    Ticks Suck

    Hope you get better soon. How long was it embedded in your skin?
  10. If prepared properly, tastes like a good steak IMO
  11. Of course; you still the September season, conservation order, ducks, etc. Just thinking that hunting will probably decline during the regular goose season much like it did in the ‘90s when feds cut the goose limit.
  12. I think the larger concern is, is it even worth schlepping your gear into the fields/streams for one goose. Spend an hour-plus traveling and setting up only to shoot one goose in 5 minutes.
  13. Browning Citori, a gift from my boss. He told me he was tired of me borrowing his guns - LOL …. I was 25, knew nothing about guns and never hunted before. He taught me everything about waterfowl and pheasant hunting.
  14. Cabela’s has fallen off my radar screen as well. I went to the one in Delaware in April on my way to NC. There was hardly any merchandise and virtually no ammo on the shelves. I was in and out within 10 minutes.
