  1. I have a defective flying squirrel. He can only hover a few inches off the ground. He's not very fast either. I think he was born that way.
  2. I'll be there on Saturday the 8th. We try to go every year. We used to go during the week thinking it will be less crowded, but it's crowded anytime you go. You see a lot of the same stuff every year, but there is usually a booth or two with something new and innovative that I haven't seen before. There are some deals to be had. For example, I got a manual inflatable life vest for $35 a couple of years ago. However, some of the stuff marked as SHOW SPECIALS can be found cheaper online. The TactaCam "SHOW SPECIAL" at their booth could be found much cheaper at almost any online retailer. Park at Bass Pro shops and take the free shuttle to the show to kill 2 birds with 1 stone. Bass pro usually runs decent sales during the week of the show too.
  3. Nevermind. I'm in Asbury. You'd need to have a really good arm to hit my place!
  4. I'm in Warren county, but I'm a stone's throw from Hunterdon county. Are you the guy who keeps breaking my windows?
  5. Thanks for the info. Maybe I'll give it a try this spring.
  6. I started smoking for the same reasons. I think that is why many people start smoking/dipping/chewing/drinking/drugs/etc. Unfortunately, by the time you wise up you're hooked.
  7. Why did you start dipping and chewing tobacco? Were you escaping something? If so, why didn't you choose to exercise or shoot bow instead?
  8. I'm new to the Delaware River fishing scene. What is shad fishing all about? A lot of people seem to be REALLY into it. Is shad good eating? The only freshwater fish I can stand to eat is bass. Do they put up a good fight? Are they easy to catch? I'm really curious.
  9. You obviously never smoked. Kudos to you. If only it were that easy. First and foremost, you have to REALLLY want to quit. No half-assing it here. No BSing yourself. I was a 2-3 pack a day guy for years. Tried the cold turkey thing a few times, but didn't last a week. Then i tried the patch. It was expensive back then(late 90's). Figured if it worked it would be worth every penny. Quit for 2 years. Thought i had it beat. Then hit a rough patch in life and started up again. Quit again 2 years later with the help of a good woman and the patch. I've been smoke free for 19 years now. I don't see myself going back, but you never know. Addiction is a powerful thing.
  10. I bought the Incinerator bibs this past fall, and I used them for all day sits in Northern PA during the rifle season. They are the by far the best bibs I have ever owned. They thought of everything when they engineered these. I am a 5'9" fat guy. Every other bibs that I have owned are bulky, and they don't fit right. I can never get the shoulder straps to adjust short enough, so the crotch hangs at my knees. Not the incinerators! I got the 3XL. They fit very well. If I wanted to, I could walk comfortably in them. They are warm, comfortable, lightweight, highly compress-able for transport, and easy to get on and off. I can't say enough good things about them. The price is a little steep without a discount, but I am not afraid to spend money to stay warm. I have relatives who would rather freeze all day than spend a nickel. I hunt for fun. Hunting while freezing to death is not fun to me. I will be looking to buy the Parka next fall.
  11. That's a good idea, but I hunt public land. It would be gone in a week. I typically put my cameras over mineral sites in spring/summer. My Brownings and Bushnells that are rated for 1 year battery life are usually dead in 6-8 weeks. They take thousands of pics during that time, so it's no wonder they die so fast. Cell cams wouldn't last nearly that long. However, they would probably be fine during the fall when deer traffic is lower.
  12. I was planning on buying a few cell cams last summer. During my research I found that they all have short battery life, which is why I didn't buy any. Once they overcome that obstacle, I'll be in the market again.
  13. Interesting. Thanks for the info!
  14. My brother sometimes helps out a buddy who's a deputy in the PA Game Commission. This morning they picked up a roadkill buck. Check out the hooves. I've never seen anything like it.
