  1. Looks like a fun training. Will have to try to fit that in some year in case I manage to get a decent property in future or find extra time. Had fun live trapping and releasing as a kid. Saw a guy setting muskrat traps while mid day duck hunting last year. I was surprised how fast he placed his sets. I guess the real time needed is prepping those furs.

    Would you rather.........

    I go for the green patch. But my aim is at the deer,s elbow there first as a small point to focus on, then slight raise up or if right near the stand aim right at that crease knowing it will hit a little higher. Deer usually down in sight with that spot. You should get heart or major artery plus the lungs.

    The Non-Pickup Truck

    I like those heavy duty space blankets. 2 bags of ice in the deer inside the blanket keeps it cool and with gromets you can tie is up to avoid spilling much blood. But you still have to get it up to the tail gate. Jet sled with the piece of plywood sounds good. I have one of those hitch winches but only used it for moving a 9.8 outboard so far.

    09/08 Opening day check in!

    Pouring rain down mid south jersey so chickened out. Will see if the afternoon forecast further south is right or not.

    The future of our sport

    As someone stated we need to get more people interested. Even if they try it and stop for a while at least they understand the sport. And do not shy away in conversations. Be ready with info. So far I have my wife started and she will never stop now. One of our nieces who married a guy that hunts - they both still hunt on their own property. One of my grandsons (the other two too young yet). And he's normally on the electronic games when he has free time. I thought there was no chance there. He surprised me. My wife actually broke the ice with him. Neither parent hunts but have no issue with it. Started bow hunting, now working on firearms safety course. For some reason he was afraid of the 12 ga kick. So I let him shoot the wife's 20 guage with high brass. Then I dared him to shoot the 12 ga with low brass. You should have seen the look on his face shooting a can with the 12 ga! "Hey - this kicks less!" I noted the gun is heavier and used a different shell. He even hit a clay pigeon I threw in the air. Not an every weekend hunter yet but might be. One guy from work somewhat helped on an archery start but he's hooking up with buddies who are hunters too. So I'm working on it. One issue I have that I think is tough to fix is when I got started I could walk out my back door and go rabbit and squirrel hunting. Or walk across town and hit an unposted field or woods. Now it's not huntable and I can't find decent rabbit and squirrel locations. So most kids, even if they really want to hunt, have to arrange for a way to get to the spot and back. And a 14 yr old walking down the black horse pike /route 42 now would probably result in twenty 911 calls today.

    How many Deer Permits do you pay for?

    One or two for bow, one muzzleloader, one shotgun. Then for the wife 2 bow. Grandkid this year - not sure yet. SO probably 6 or 7. Paying my "dues" for NJ wildlife management.

    Snake Rescue and Relocation

    Hey that's the very rare pigmy garter snake - poisonous in NJ!

    Gulp?

    I use these - should be able to find them in grocery stores. Mine were from Acme. As long as you double check you closed them they seem to stay sealed even upside down. I store away from sun after fishing so not sure about leaving outdoors with constant sun: https://www.amazon.com/Hefty-Fresh-Storage-Container-Rectangular/dp/B009G46X6G/ref=asc_df_B009G46X6G/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=241927124583&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=1258832365330253596&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9003781&hvtargid=pla-414706146467&psc=1

    Tips for hunting the Wetlands...

    Maybe gun season or late in bow when you don't care about spooking them wade that stream very very slowly still hunting with a good pair of waders. Watch a great blue heron and be one of them. Except scan around and ahead slowly.

    So confused....my head hurts

    My plan is sort of like fdsmiles. Rainy on Saturday? Duck hunt. Otherwise deer hunt. Fishing Sunday. Or scouting of no reports. Bad weather Sunday? Cook game or fish and one item on the honey do list.
