  1. I'm looking at treating myself to a new recurve before I go away to college, I'm eyeing a used Black Widow and a used Bear Kodiak takedown, but even at reduced prices of $550 and $600 I'm still not comfortable shelling out THAT much money for a bow. I'm also looking at older bear recurves for half the money that would shoot just as fine. They're all 60-65lbs since I wanted a good hunting weight in the range of mortals, instead of 100# bow, plus watching old Fred Bear films convinced my that glass laminated bows are more efficient than I once thought and don't really need higher poundages above 70#. Fred Bear took an elephant with a 75lbs bow. If you don't mind giving me advice on prices and such (unless you're worried about your wife/girlfriend seeing how much you paid) I'd like get an guesstimate on what you'd shell out for a new bow setup, including bow accessories.
  2. Found this growing in my garden next to my strawberries. I think it's Eastern Black Nightshade (Solanum ptychanthum) but I've never seen it before.
  3. Seems about right thanks for the help
  4. Sorry for the bad photos from by security cameras. The fox looked mangy but I couldn't tell if it was rabid, sick, dying soon in any case. The tail has no hair, the body is emaciated, and the coat is patchy and scraggly. Sussex County animal control can go piss off since they only go after people's cats that they let roam around and become feral, lost dogs or emaciated foxes? NOPE they don't have the "resources". I have my shotgun in my room so I'll put it down if it shows up again, I have a soft spot for Foxes and it pains me to see it suffer for any longer.

    Old gun

    Definitely isn't a mosin or arisaka (they had straight bolt handles), can't be a krag since it doesn't have the funky side loading box next to the action. I know the hole in the buttplate was generally used to house a small thing of gunoil and some small tools to help with field stripping the rifle and adjusting the sights. Definitely a service rifle since it has a bayonet lug. It looks like it used to have a laddersight right in front of the bolt that is now missing. I haven't got a clue.
  6. Until stone gets legalized, a solid two blade will do.
  7. Nah just scalp ya with a dull rusty knife
  8. Nice looking bow, would've taken you up if it was a higher poundage, saw a beat up one on ebay a few months ago, something like 82 pounds, surprised they even made them that strong back then, guess there was a market for it.
  9. Oh I know full well that there are people already doing it, fact of the matter is that it will increase once it has been legalized (some articles https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2018/10/19/car-crashes-up-states-legal-marijuana-studies-show/1693567002/ https://www.lexipol.com/resources/blog/impact-marijuana-legalization-dui/) A factor on whether or not people do stuff is how it may affect them in the near future. I know for myself with kids at my school, everyone is going to college, everyone is expecting to "go places" when they finish however many years they're doing. I personally know a fair amount of kids who specifically do not smoke weed since they don't want to take the chance of messing up their record, or geting arrested for that matter, that doesn't stop some from driving to school while smoking a joint, they usually get caught though. Granted besides the increase in DUI's, worrying about your future can be thrown out the window when you're a deadbeat stoner out of high school.
  10. Get ready for an influx of DUI's, people will be hot boxing their cars everywhere.
  11. I might be able to come by, I'll bring my cruiser axe and atlatl with a couple darts (bows take a rest in winter), I might have a few pheasants left that I could bring to cook, but would need to serve as appetizer portions. Also if someone could bring a thinner bit splitting axe for me to use I'd appreciate that since my splitter got stolen, 2.5lb cruiser is for smaller tasks, or showing off my axe skills .
  12. No, just no. That's the kind of ammo Gamo skews their tests with, you'll get fps, but beyond 15 yds that stuff will fly a few counties over and hit like a marshmallow compared to a solid soft lead pellet.
