  1. Just One Lure?

    That Rapala entry is hard to beat, but the only other one that comes to mind is he Mepps Black Fury. I didn't start using them until a few years ago, but the Roadrunners catch everything too.
  2. Yep, that nails it. My goals, enjoy time with family, and kill a buck bigger than last years (ok, maybe just kidding on that last one)..
  3. The world we live in....

    Lol, well, really no laughing matter but it's about to get much, much worse. When they take out President Trump... and they will... Liberals/Democrats will go in hard at even more PC stuff since he was so anti-PC, to quell, squash, intimidate and deter anyone from ever mobilizing common sense Americans to vote again. We might have 2 years left where expressing many Conservative beliefs will not be shamed, maybe even criminalized in the not-too-distant future.
  4. Rompola Buck

    I don't know if it's real or not, but neither do any of the detractors, they are just guessing. All we do know is this: everyone who has seen and handled the deer...every single person, including 3 official scorers, an outdoor writer, and conservation officer...say it's real, and every person saying it's not real, has never seen it in person. Not one single person who has seen or handled the deer has said it's fake, or even suspicious. While there are some things that may strike some who have viewed photos as suspicious, there are explanations for them other than a fake rack.
  5. Getting Old Can Suck !!!

    Yep. You'll get used to it. Pain will be worse some days than others but eventually, you'll learn to do what you can and live with it...or become depressed because you aren't pain-free any longer and feel sorry for yourself all day. Your choice. It's your new norm, and some years down the road, something else will hurt, and THAT will become your new norm, until nothing hurts any longer except the hearts of those you left behind.
  6. So, let's talk grills

    Yeah, you have to play with it a bit but I'm at the point now where I can fire it up about 10pm, get it stable by 10:30 or 10:45 and put a pork butt on. About another 15 minutes of tinkering and she's holding well so I go to bed. Get up about 6am and check on it but it's usually good until about 8 or 9 am when it will start to lose heat, so I move it to my already heated MES and finish there without smoke. The meat can only take so much smoke anyhow so anything after like 6 hours is just for looks and that wonderful aroma.
  7. So, let's talk grills

    I've had several, and if I get another...and who doesn't need another smoker...I'm going to try the Traeger Pro Series 34. Right now, I do just about everything I need, and it comes out great on the Weber 22 kettle. I use it mostly as a smoker and can do low and slow as good as just about anything else with the Slow N Sear. It allows you to turn your kettle into a much better smoker. I have done smokes as long as 10 hours at 225 and it holds the temp within 10-15 degrees pretty well, once you get to know your grill and how to use the vents. Only issue is capacity, you can only get one packer brisket or pork butt on the kettle at a time. https://www.amazon.com/Adrenaline-Barbecue-Company-SNS1000-Slow/dp/B014O9YB6G/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1522924455&sr=8-3&keywords=slow+'n+sear I also have been using my MES 30 with a mailbox mod with great results too. The food tastes just as good as the Weber and is set it and forget it. I can also cold smoke fish, nuts and cheese with the mailbox mod. Only issue is that chicken skin sometimes doesn't get very crisp due to the moisture content of the MES, but, it sits next to my gas grill so a quick turn on a hot gas grill after coming off the smoke fixes that. On the Weber, I can just move the chicken right over the coals to crisp. Was doing a lot of smoked wings like that last summer. Smoking them in the MES then moving right to the grill to crisp up.
  8. any coin or old currency collectors here?

    I have a small collection, started in the early 1970's, stopped in the early 1980's. There are plenty of Indian Head and wheat pennies, buffalo nickles, some Morgan and peace dollars, mercury dimes, a few Liberty half dollars, some old Washington quarters, barber dimes, etc. If anyone is interested in adding them to their collection, and willing to pay a fair price, PM me.
  9. Photos doing silly things

    I had to turn the sound down on my computer...those banjo's playing in the background were very loud.
  10. Maine and Ohio, part deux

    Scores aside, this is still my favorite pic. Just a typical Maine camp pic.
  11. Maine and Ohio, part deux

    Got a gross score on both of them. 153 & 1/8 for the Ohio buck and 168 & 7/8 for the Maine buck. Here they are side by side.
  12. You Looking at Me?
