  1. Thanks. Has anyone used air rifles on woodchucks with any success?
  2. I use this in the spring and try to keep all the brush and tall grass mowed down. https://www.ortho.com/en-us/products/bugs/ortho-bug-b-gon-max-insect-killer-lawns3-granules I also did this a few year ago and threw the tubes in my shed, under deck, by firewood piles etc.. https://www.myfrugalhome.com/how-to-make-tick-tubes/
  3. Looking to pickup an air rifle for hunting. Anyone have one in 22 caliber that they recommend? Not going tonuse it all that much so hoping to keep price in the $200 and under range if possible. Thanks
  4. Congrats. That's a good one.
  5. Probably henned up. Sit tight and see if he doesn't come back to life at 10 or so.
  6. Nashville has really nice areas and really bad areas. Unfortunately, the real estate prices for the nice areas have skyrocketed and in many cases are on par with NJ or even higher.
  7. Not sure if it was because of hunting pressure, location or the fact that it was 20 years ago but when I used to hunt upstate ny the birds were much more vocal. Back then I would've never considered sitting down and calling unless i had a vocal gobbler respinding back to me. They used to shock gobble at owl hoots and crow calls too which made it much easier to get in position. In NJ, I'm not sure if I've ever heard one shock gobble to an owl or crow call. They are also definitely quieter. I just got nailed yesterday by 2 longbeards when I got up from calling and assumed nothing was coming in. Not a good feeling.
  8. I'd try your factory full choke first with Hevi 13 in size 7 or 6 shot. If that doesn't pattern well enough, I'd try an Indian Creek in .665 constriction.
  9. Nice job. Glad you got some action. Was really quiet today
  10. Good luck all. Looks like forecast was accurate... gonna be a wet one.
  11. Use whatever call you are comfortable with. If you are going out tomorrow for youth day, they better be able to run wet as the forecast couldn't be worse. Got my boxes in ziplocs, sticking to this lineup of pots as all can be run wet. Mouth calls will be on the menu too.
  12. Not sure when you are going to do any scouting but this Saturday is youth day so may want to avoid scouting before noon on Saturday.
  13. No need for the brush. Hoppes should be fine. If not, a few patches with this stuff will get you in good shape. https://ads.midwayusa.com/product/112089/sharp-shoot-r-wipe-out-patch-out-brushless-bore-cleaning-solvent-8-oz-liquid?utm_medium=shopping&utm_source=google&utm_campaign=Shooting+-+Gun+Cleaning&utm_content=112089&cm_mmc=pf_ci_google-_-Shooting+-+Gun+Cleaning-_-Sharp+Shoot+R-_-112089&gclid=CjwKCAjwndvlBRANEiwABrR32MDWaJ7XBPxr7ZUTMjqj1p8G6AXnGqSJ1pzH5ZqwP_4Vv4CWtpgxUBoC-ysQAvD_BwE
