    Upland Boots ?

    I will throw out something not yet mentioned. Most of my upland hunts are 1/2 day stints at most, but I can log a few miles in that amount of time. I really like my lightweight, non-insulated, goretex, mid-height hiking boots for these outings. They are waterproof to combat morning dew, puddles and rain, provide ample support, and feel like sneakers. I can hunt for hours in these and they never ¨feel heavy.¨ Its rare to get sub 25 degree days through December, and since I am constantly on the move, I don´t really need the insulation and weight that comes with it. Salomon, Vasque,Danner, Rocky, etc. all make boots of this style.
  2. Beautiful pup.... Best of luck with him afield. Greg Sent from my SM-G892U using Tapatalk

    Get your Thermacell ready !

    On top of the mosquitos, I just experienced my first encounter with chiggers in my woods. I am not happy, been walking these woods since 98 and never ran in to them. Their bites are itchy beyond mosquito bites. Sent from my SM-G892U using Tapatalk

    Organic Turkey for dinner

    Well, I won´t lie either. Last few birds I harvested were made into turkey nuggets. I cut up the breasts into approx 1.5¨ cubes, and run them through an egg wash and seasoned break crumbs. I doctor up the crumbs with extra garlic powder and bbq seasonings. The cubes then go into my cast iron skillet with about 1/2¨ of vegetable oil - fry them until golden brown. I serve with a honey dijon and BBQ dipping sauce. My kids LOVE THEM!. AND SO DO I. I know frying isn´t the healthiest, but every once in a while won´t hurt ya! Congrats on the birds! Greg
  5. You have been given good advice thus far with on-line dog supply stores; but don forget Craigslist can be your friend too! Nothing wrong with ¨used dummies.¨ And don´t forget to get him micro - chipped!
  6. Nice one...it's always nice when they expire in sight...but a long tracking experience that ends with your hands on horn can be rewarding too[emoji3] Sent from my SM-G892U using Tapatalk
  7. My dad's 8 and my 10...taken 15 minutes apart on NY 2015 opening day morning of rifle season. We have been hunting this property since 1986 and these two are the biggest taken to date, and the biggest buck my dad has ever shot. I was thrilled when he contacted me and said big buck down!

    Tire recommendations Ford F 150

    I had a 1998 Ford F-150 and purchased Michelin LTS/MS tires to replace the orginals at 30,000 miles. I got 40,000 miles on those Michelins, and about the same out of the next set. Great tire if you are looking to stay at OEM size and are not looking for a dedicated off-road tire. The Michelin´s are great all season tire that can handle rain and snow, have a quite ride on pavement, and can handle some off-road stuff as well. They were a big upgrade for the Goodyear RT/S tires they replaced. I think Michelins newest version of these might be LTS/MS2? FYI - I believe both Costco and BJś sell a version of these tires; so there might be some cost savings there if you are a club member and are OK with a big box handling the installation (mount/balence, etc.). These clubs also usually have free rotation and balancing for life of tires. Good luck and let us know what decide on. Greg

    Had the itch....

    I will also recommend Jerry from South Shore for your arrow needs. He set me up with a dozen Black Eagle Executioners that fly great out of my Bowtech/Stryker. Give him a ring, tell him what you are shooting, and I´m sure he can recommend and option or two of properly spined arrows for your rig. Don´t forget to get some lube for the rail! Good luck and have fun - they are blast to shoot. Greg
  10. Thanks for all the "congrats" fellas! Sent from my SM-G892U using Tapatalk
  11. Got it done tonight at 5:25. Had 6 does come in over my back shoulder and took the first one. Very thankful as it was a lean year for me with only another late season doe in the freezer. The 3 blade spitfire performed well and she only went 35 yards. I hope everyone had a safe season while enjoying our natural resources. Greg Sent from my SM-G892U using Tapatalk

    CVA muzzleloader

    I have the original CVA Accura and will second the Blackhorn powder recommendation. I shoot with 110 grains of BlackHorn 209, a 250 grain Barnes EZ copper bullet, harvester black crush rib sabot, and CCI Mag shotgun primers...this is a deadly accurate combination. I´m sure a lot of powders works, but it seems like these Bergara barrels really like the blackhorn 209; plus I like the ability to clean with traditional solvents vs. soap n water.

    WMA pheasants - hold overs?

    maybe I will give it a shot as you suggest. Worse outcome is me and my dog getting some exercise while spending a few hours afield!!
