  1. I know a lot of people still think this isn’t bad because of statistics from the flu. But if the the flu was worse than this we would already be prepared. You wouldn’t see the hospitals running out of vents, or rooms, you wouldn’t see morgues over flowing causing hospitals to rent and purchase refrigeration trucks to stack bodies (yes that’s right here in NJ). I’ve never personally known anybody that has died from the flu. In the past week I know of 4 people that have died from CV19. Two in their 30s, 1 who was 46 and 1 who was late 50s. Known who are unhealthy. It seems it may not get as bad as it was first predicted. Probably 2.5-3.5 million cases, 250,000 deaths (worldwide). It just doesn’t compare to the flu in my personal experience.
  2. One time a few years ago. Checked the usual.
  3. I'll be headed up on the 8th. The Adirondacks have been good to me the last few years, I don't mind if the success continues but it is also nice in camp when someone has success. That bull moose is awesome. I only have them on trail cam, haven't seen one in person yet. I've found sheds in Maine, would love to find a NY shed though one day.
  4. Tater I haven’t had any luck finding the FB page.
  5. It may sound cliche, but Cops get into the profession because they want to help. They want to do good and have no doubt putting their safety on the line for others. They are good people. However it’s never easy to tell parents in the middle of the night that their kid is dead, it’s never easy getting to a call and pumping on a guys chest as his 9 year old daughter is crying for her dad before she can be moved to the next room, or pulling up to a 7 year old boy who just cut the rope with a kitchen knife around his mothers neck before she killed herself, or cutting a 15 year old girl down from the rafters of her parents basement and seeing how elongated her neck is, or having one of your buddies get shot in the head after hitting the streets less than a month out of the academy, seeing parents that beat their children and their children are so brainwashed that they would go to lengths to protect their parents, doing CPR on a 3 year old boy who escaped the house and fell into the neighbors pond, I can go on and on and on about examples of what cops see, and those being in just a small town where people joke why do you even carry a gun. The point is don’t just think that cops signed up for their job. Granted they did. However, no one can prepare you for the show that unfolds in a career in LE and no one can expect to see what LEOs see in their career. Don’t think that cops want to do the things they are asked to do but know that they are up for the task that no one else wants to handle.
  6. Unions try to protect the privacy of Officers, not protect bad cops. This isn’t the old days of the wild wild west. No one hates a bad cop more then a good cop, I promise you that. No one wants to risk their lively hood and that of their families to protect a bad egg. However you think PDs air out their dirty laundry when they get rid of a bad egg?? No. You don’t hear about 90% of them. Just like you don’t hear about 90% of police involved shootings. You clearly mistook what I was saying about LEOs. If you want to call them a gang you can, they technically are, as are any union or band of people sticking together. Your choice to place a negative connotation to it or not is your choice. A gang will kick someone out for going against them. My metaphor was referring to kicking out bad cops. I know LEOs are very hard working professionals. You have bad apples for sure, much less bad apples then most professions.
  7. Man I never got a hat! Lol. Brian has the group changed much in the last couple years doing the stocking??
  8. You can be a cop and not be in the union. I’m not sure what exactly your referring to but Unions cannot do anything to protect an officer from an Investigation other then ensuring that their rights are not violated. Yes cops have rights like everyone else, they are still people. Those rights do not include hiding any info lol. I am not sure what you see as bad cops but cops will be the first to oust a truly bad cop. A slug maybe maybe not. A bad cop has no right amongst the ranks of other cops. It’s like a gang. You turn on the gang and your ousted.
  9. Of course I’ll be working....Kanigie are you going?
  10. Same for me. I’m all the way out in Warren County. Recently became a member and I’m looking forward to having a Jersey Chapter. I’ve been working during every event I’ve seen in Jersey so far too.
  11. Are you guys just getting manure from farms or stables for composting??
  12. I want to put in a raised bed garden this year. Have never gardened before. Are there any tips you can give a newbie? I’ve been reading some articles recently to get an idea of what to do. Plan on starting the project soon.
  13. Sorry to hear that. Glad she is okay and on her way home. Not that this would have helped her but for us guys, this is why I carry two wallets, get pick pocketed, robbed, lose a wallet, etc, I at least have some money/credit card to find my way home. If I get pick pocketed or robbed they will most likely go after my “normal” wallet which has a credit card and mostly reward cards and other BS I keep in there lol. Has happened once already! But he wasn’t a pro and just a kid and we caught him lol.
  14. How much for the tool box??

  15. Well the other evening I missed. I was praying I could get it done this evening wanting one last deer for the freezer. It’s been a good year but I gave a lot of meat away! Did a quick hang and hunt and of course set myself up for the deer to come one way and they come the other. They were on pins and needles. Said I would shoot the first deer no matter what. It ended up being a button buck and he got the pass, and I was regretting that lol 6 deer finally all walk off and the biggest was the last to leave. Luckily last second she presented me with a quartering away shot. Was lucky to make it happen. Sorry for the crummy pic, I had every intention of taking a nicer one but I was in a rush because I got called into work. Bring on the gobblers!!
