    Baby Boy

    Congratulations!
  3. Unfortunately I wasn't able to re-enlist due to being injured in the line of duty, sometime I thank God for that. I was born and raised on post, and it was a pleasure to serve my Country. I would most definitely do it over again, minus the injury. I had planned on doing my 20, but only made it halfway. When my family was young and small, getting deployed wasn't such a big deal. The wife and kids would go stay with my in laws in Montana. Since we are up to 5 kids now, I might find it a little harder to be away for periods of time. I never thought about not coming home, that really hits home now. I always thought I was bullet proof, being young and dumb does that to you.
  4. Congrats to the winners, and a Thank you for giving me a chance to enter.

    Rattling

    It's a Primos. First time using one, was using real antlers but got tired of bloody knuckles. I was very surprised with the results.

    Rattling

    Finally had some luck rattling last season. Had 2 nice bucks and one small one respond, only had a clear shot one one. A real nice 8 point, 30 yds, but I just watched him in awe, and let him walk away. I was using a rattle bag.

    FORT BRAGG ?

    I can honestly thank my wife for me not being the homeless vet. I swear if it wasn't for her and my kids, I'd be either dead or on the street. I deal with so much crap with no help whatsoever from the VA. My VA Therapist, lifelong civilian asking me what traumas I endured. They don't get it. Throw pills at me which make me a zombie. Maybe I need to start drinking or something. It seems like it's getting worse everyday! With that being said, visiting this site everyday gives me a lot of joy. Agree or disagree I think the guys here are pretty awesome folks. The interaction between members here is kinda like family.
  8. I can't believe he actually resigned! But still denies everything...
  9. Done, and prayers for the family sent.

    Charities

    The Gideon's. Spreading God's word is an awesome thing!
  11. Nick, Does this really matter? You still can't hunt doves in New Jersey, so until the state changes their mind, it doesn't matter.
  12. Our season starts in a few weeks. Can't wait to get out!
  13. Started tying again after my trip to Montana. Actually been catching some bass on some of my poppers. I can't believe I tied something that catches! I will have to give this a try some evening.
  14. I have a buddy that rebuilds them, he gave my kids a couple a few years ago. They are a blast! Living in a small town, we are able to ride just about anywhere. Cops don't mind as long as your not being stupid about things.

    Truth About Privilege

    I have seen this first hand. Right after 9/11 I was laid off, and we were going to the Old Bridge food bank. The people driving new cars, women with new manicures and the latest phones. The food bank asked my wife to give a class on surviving hardship. Maybe we were just raised differently
  16. What an awesome achievement, Congratulations!!
  17. I love the competition blend, the last batch I mixed with a bag of fruit pellets. I love mixing my pellets for something a little different.
  18. Mossberg 500 bought when I was 12, still use it today for everything. Only shotgun I own.
  19. Since I'm one of the ass hats that agreed with him, I'll answer. I spend my hard earned money raising my family. I don't have expendable income like that to spend. If you do, I'm happy for you. I hold no grudges for those of you that can afford such things. I shoot a 400 dollar crossbow, and it does me just fine. I would love to be able to upgrade my equipment someday, maybe when I retire. Is that a good enough answer for you?
  20. Looks like a piece of petrified wood, maybe a tree branch. We find a lot of those around here during drought years.
