  1. There is alot of confusing information out there. I do a yearly trip to Champlain 5 guys, 2 pickups both pulling bass boats. We are scheduled to go up end of 1st week in May. Not sure where I stand with being able to travel up that way. I wonder if guys pulling boats and NJ plates with be drawing too much attention? Any thoughts on traveling to NY under these circumstances?
  2. Beautiful gun and nice selection of scope/bases. I use to reload for my 308 but haven't in years. I'd recommend giving the Hornady Whitetail ammo (150 grain interlocks) a try as my Rem 700 loves it, as does my son's Browning lever action 308. Both of those guns shoot sub 1" groups at 100 yards, and while the Interlock bullets used may not be considered a "premium bullet," they are proven performers with a long history of success. Good luck with it.
  3. Glad to hear that some mfgs still care. Unfortunately, that is not the norm these days.
  4. So, do I need semi-wild papers (or a permit of some type) if I want to purchase birds and release them on private property to hunt? The semi-wild papers seem to be geared towards someone wanting to operate a semi-wild preserve as a business venture. I would like to try this just a time or 2 this season on some property a buddy of mine owns. I assume I would need a current hunting license and pheasant stamp, would have to abide by a 2 bird limit for pheasant and 7 bird limit for chukar, and can't hunt on Sundays? Didn't mean to hijack the thread that deals with planting birds on a WMA, but I'd like to plant some birds on private property and want to go about this in the right way. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Tx-Greg

  9. Hi Jim - I have no experience utilizing my Boykin for waterfowl so I can't speak from firsthand knowledge. However, they are known as the "dog that doesn't rock the boat" and the breed was specifically developed for hunters chasing ducks from canoes and small john boats in the swaps and backwaters of the Carolinas. I think they would do fine in temps +35, and maybe a bit colder if outfitted with an insulating- floatation vest. Toby does fine in cold temps upland hunting, but I have seen him getting snow packed into his paws since they are webbed and he tries to chew the snow chunks out. Hopefully, others will chime in to answer your question regarding Boykins and cold weather waterfowling. I don't want to misinform you. I can say with certainty that Boykins are great people dogs and Toby is great with kids of all sizes. Greg
  10. He turned 6 in May. My first hunting dog and I feel blessed; great afield and great in the home. He is absolutely adored by son and daughter and doted on to no end!
  11. Great pic...Love the sun rising in the foreground. I think I could replace your dog in the pic with mine and you might not know the difference; both in looks and behavior. Boykins truly want to please!! I haven't had much luck in the fields either with the few I have harvested coming from edges and hedge rows.
  12. I have a Gamehide vest that works well. Nothing special but it does the job of holding birds and shells, plenty of pockets, etc. It's not expensive but is well made IMO. As others have stated, the freedom of movement in a vest vs. jacket is something to consider, and it's easier to layer under a vest without getting all bound up like the Michelin Man. Greg
  13. You beat me to it LPJR. My cleos were 1 compartment over from the silver phoebes and red devil spoons in my two tiered Garcia tackle box. The phoebies were my go to trout lure for west branch delaware trout in NY. Sent from my SM-G892U using Tapatalk
