  1. I did see the Sturgis video. Thats why I wanted to try it. I have a 1/2 acre that I planted winter wheat in last September. At the end of April I increased it to 1 acre and I have a mix I got from Hancock seed (oats, rye, clover, wheat) I want to plant in the fall using the throw and go method. I am putting the Buckwheat in next week as a builder.
  2. I ordered 150 lbs of Buckwheat from Growmark they say they will have it tomorrow. I have a 200+ acre parcel of land that I lease out 50 acres for ag corn/beans to a local farmer. The rest is wooded except for a 4 acre area I am building a house and pole barn. I have 2 other foodplots on the land and I am making a third that is about an acre. I want to try throw and go on this new plot. I sprayed and cut it. I am going to throw the buckwheat in to help build the soil and plant a blend come August/Sept. And yes I did a soil test, and added lime and fert. It was cheaper do have ag lime done at 2t/acre on a 14 acre site than me doing it with pelletized lime on an acre.
  3. Deercreek looked good but the free shipping is for 25lbs or less. I have a 1 acre field that I wanted to put some Buckwheat in and that will take at least 100 lbs.
  4. I am in East Brunswick, NJ. Checked locally but didn't pan out. I ordered from Merrit before for their Hillcrest Trail Mix for around my cabin. Stuff worked great better than any grass seed I could buy. But to buy 100 pound of buckwheat for 90.00 and then spend 70 for shipping gets expensive quick.
  5. Does anyone know a place in NJ where I could buy cover crop/food plot seed. I'm thinking of things like buckwheat, winterwheat, and oats? Everything I find has to be ordered online and shipping is a killer. Looking for larger amounts 50lb bags.
  6. Keep checking Craigs list for that area you may get lucky.

    Chainsaw Help

    If you don't use your chainsaw frequently spend the money and buy the True Fuel for it. It is a canned pre-mixed non-ethanol fuel that doesn't gum up the carb or eat the rubber hoses. Of course you need to get yours working first. When I bought my new Husky three years ago I started using it and I have never had a problem starting it.
  8. I'm not sure what happened but the post posted on it's own before I finished typing. Anyway I'm farm exempt. My property taxes are 660.00 per year. You read it right. I am 20 minutes from a main town that has shopping, 50 minutes from Bowling Green that has everything imaginable. 1 hour 20 minutes from Nashville I lease out 60 acres to a local farmer who alternates corn and soybeans, I collect money for doing nothing. My neighbors are friendly, helpful and polite as are everyone I've encountered. Gas and food are cheaper. The first 41,000 of my pension is tax exempt. Social Security is tax exempt. I have great deer and turkey hunting on my own property as well as coyote hunting. I have my own 700 yard range. I have been going down there for two weeks at a time every 5 weeks since 2017. We just picked out house plans and are planning on building early next year, I am just waiting for my two daughters to finish college before we move full time. My wife loves it there. Construction costs run between 125 and 175 per square foot.
  9. I'm not sure why Kentucky is listed as dead last. I retired in 2017 after 25 years and did a lot of looking around. I ended up buying a 205 acre farm in south central Kentucky that has a 900 square foot cabin on it.
  10. Guys, In New Jersey you cannot have a semi-automatic shotgun with a pistol grip or thumbhole stock. Here is the New Jersey State Police Link. https://www.state.nj.us/njsp/info/pdf/firearms/njac-title13-3. A semi-automatic shotgun with either a magazine capacity exceeding six rounds, a folding stock or a pistol grip; or a semi-automatic rifle with a fixed magazine capacity exceeding 15 rounds. For purposes of this paragraph, "semi-automatic" means a firearm which fires a single projectile for each pull of the trigger and is self-reloading or automatically chambers a round, cartridge or bullet. For purposes of this paragraph "pistol grip" means a well defined handle, similar to that found on a handgun, that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon, and which permits the shotgun to be held and fired with one hand; If you do not believe me or think I am wrong call the NJSP Firearms Investigation Unit 609-882-2000 x 2290. You can argue a thumbhole stock is not the same as a pistol grip but the NJSP says it is and they are the source for the 21 county Prosecutor Offices that prosecute those types of crimes. I don't agree with it but it is what it is. Also try to call Benelli, Remington, or Stoeger they all manufacture them but will not ship them to NJ. I don't want to see anyone get jammed up.
  11. Yes the online check in is convenient but I do miss the old metal tags. I Euro many of my heads and liked hanging the tag on the antler. Now I shove the paper tag where the spine was.
  12. Dominic at WAACD is a good guy and knows his stuff around bows. Yes it is more of a hobby business for him, his bread and butter is the tire business next door. Guys need to realize he is a small shop. If you buy your bow online because you "got a great price" and bring it to Dominic to set up you are going to pay for his time.
  13. Check out the Wicked Ridge line. Wicked Ridge is made by Ten Point, they are pretty nice. Dicks has the Invader Accu Draw on sale now for 450.
  14. I saw mention of Cabelas Hamburg store, don't wast your time. I went there in the beginning of October to get some new boots, I like trying on things before I buy them. The bargain cave is gone, they did away with it. I think I have a bigger camo selection in my garage then they had in the entire store. The racks on everything were spread out to make the store look full. There was hardly anyone shopping in there. A real shame. The store was only a little better than Dicks. Don't wast your time on the trip. Everything I asked for they said they didn't have in the store but could order it. We'll so could I and probably cheaper.
