  1. I had luck with a few inches of snow using a center extension pole. A better bet would be a boat cover support pole with the curved top. Like this maybe but add a wider top: https://www.amazon.com/Telescoping-Tarp-Poles-Replacement-Lightweight/dp/B07DHT45VY/ref=sr_1_4?crid=2MLQNC55191U9&keywords=extendable+pole&qid=1551494723&s=sporting-goods&sprefix=extendable+pole%2Csporting%2C145&sr=1-4
  2. If you're married and smart this is the time to do the "Honey To Do" list. That way that full day paint job is not scheduled on your best fishing date. My screw up this year is having a work item scheduled on trout opener! I am slippin'!
  3. What did you go with for let off? I have my eye on that model too. My 1990 vintage Carroll Intruder needs a younger brother.
  4. IT's an annual cycle. This is the time of year I try to catch up on indoor house items. Then make some jerky, plan out the use of vension. Maybe a little late season goose hunting or snow geese if the conditions are right. March - Some fishing, probably small stripers April - trout opener, turkey scout then hunt. Some more striper fishing/largemouth bass fishing. May - Striper, maybe drum then fluke Summer - Largemouth bass freshwater, fluke salt water. August check for new state lands or new to me. September - Deer hunt focus again.
  5. "You're In" I'll be the only one with a correct entry
  6. Sometimes there is an advantage to living in South Jersey :). Might be some ice overnight though. The kind I hate - invisible black ice.
  7. Learned not to let overdue work interfere with hunting on weekends. Almost stayed home to do work. If I had I would have missed out on the rare winter bow harvest I had today.
  8. Yeah I barely heard the deer coming and very skittish. Public state land is tough.
  9. Out in zone 23 this am doe down for team 4. Will post entry later today.
  10. Winter bow this afternoon and maybe tomorrow, then Saturdays at least 'til the season is out.
  11. Yeah but you shot 'em with a X bow! Just kidding!! As long as legal no guilt should apply. Especially if running out of time and nothing in the freezer.
  12. Had an '86 Nissan" hardbody" sold at 280,000 running still. three mufflers thou. Then a Dodge Dakota 4.7 v8 traded in for the 2014 1500 Ram when it had 200,000 miles. Still ran but had a n accident and no one could get the front end right again. That was perfect size for what I wanted. But no mid sized I liked at the time so went with the Ram. Still have that quad cab 4x4 5.7 liter V8 gets better mileage than the dakota did. (drops to 4 cylinder on ECO). 22 highway, 15 to 17 non-highway. 87,000 miles so far. Only complaint is electronics. Cab rear window slide motor burned out, replaced free. But back up cam in mirror does not work most of time and dealer stated to go somewhere else to fix. Save money on trying to find the problem. (Not fixed yet - need the time to leave it at a shop. Planning to go to CarEffex) ). Also one backup light in and out so connected to that problem. If I were buying today I would wait a bit for a good look at that new ford ranger. They have been all over other countries so not really new. And it sounds like it will have a good towing capacity.https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a15154612/ford-ranger-returns-for-2019-news/ Jeep is coming out with a pickup but they are not fun to ride in and not sure how that new vehicle would actually be for size and capabilities but I would test ride that too.
  13. Well, if you set up bluetooth or something on one of these out there.... http://www.palletscales.net/ps250_hog_sheep_scale.htm
  14. On your own land do what you wish per regs. On public land I will do what is allowed by law. I can't eat antlers. (I try to get a couple or 3 deer for myself and family extended. Don't often get three without shooting yearlings in my case, which I try to avoid). If rabbits had antlers would we complain about the lack of buck rabbits? My compliant is all "my" rabbit spots from 40 yrs ago are now loaded with deer but can't hunt there because what's left of the woods is too close to shopping malls. And not much rabbits left there. I think the state did not do too badly over the years to meet targets and keep a mix of hunting chances/methods in the system. We can complain about the details but we have to do that in the right forum as groups to the council that puts the regs. together. Personally I would like a state constitution amendment for the right to hunt as a first priority before the progressives stop all hunting. (Hopefully they will see the money loss to the state F&G and change their mind). Then tweak the hunting rules. First rule change if I could do it would be no public lands are excluded from hunting - all must allow for at least a week of something. (archery from stands, etc.). 2nd would be to make the zones situation less complicated. Or if they want more money make multiple zone discounts. (I.e. get 3 zones for 50% off. ) . Or do permits by reg set instead of geography. The real question is what is the right deer population target and are we there or not? I have not looked lately. I can say that I hunt a reg set zero spot and even with the drivers I am seeing more bucks and just enough deer to keep me there because I rarely see anyone else except for 6 day week. And never had anything stolen there yet.
