  1. Now that the wife and I have smart phones, I set it up so both phones pull in the Google "Family Calendar". And now, well in advance, I am putting the days I'm hunting on "the calendar" - so she has no excuse. "I told you I was going hunting - it's on the calendar! Check your phone!"
  2. (I mentioned this in the other thread - figured it would be helpful to post in its own thread.) I put together a Google Map of all the NJ Turkey Check-in stations (as published in the 2018-19 NJ Hunting Digest). Here's a link to it: https://bit.ly/2V8P0Vv Now that I have a smart phone, I can actually use this when I'm out on the road with a turkey in the truck bed, my normal check station is closed, and I need to go find the next nearest one
  3. Do not field dress before checking in. The check-in people will look at you funny and probably will not check in the bird if you've already butchered it. Take the whole bird in (with the tag) and check it in that way. Don't ask me how I know. You can take it to any check in station. Last year, I had to drive like a half hour out of my way because the closest one was closed. Here's a link to a Google Map I put together with all the check-in stations - go anywhere you want, doesn't matter what zone you hunted: Finally, I never gut my bird. I just breast it out and take the legs.
  4. I was SOOO looking forward to it, too But hey! Silver lining - merganser limits stay the same... er.. maybe that's not a good thing.
  5. Looks like Fluffy wants to rip your heart out and eat it, too
  6. Well, it's official: https://www.njfishandwildlife.com/artmigratory19.htm Looks like I'll be doing more predator and small game hunting next year.
  7. Has anyone smoked rabbit? If so, how long did you cook it in the smoker? I ask because a few months ago, someone posted a message about this recipe for smoking squirrel. I am going to try it. I also have a couple rabbits in the freezer. So, I planned on putting both the squirrel and rabbit together in the smoker using that recipe. But I know rabbit meat isn't nearly as tough as squirrel meat, so I am wondering if I will ruin the rabbit meat if I cook it as long in the smoker as I do the squirrel. This recipe calls for smoking directly on the grate for an hour, and then 2 more hours in a covered pan with broth/beer.
  8. One day, I, too, will go live in America. Until then, enjoy your freedom. I hate you.
  9. Caught this purdy-looking fish today.... Perch are beautiful creatures - but there is something spooky about them when you realize they are cannibals - they always seem to love hitting lures that look like baby perch. How do these things grow up when they seem to love to eat their own?!
  10. Every single one of your questions is directly answered in the NJ Hunting Digest. Like folks said here, read that first - front to back, then again This is my first recommendation to anyone new to hunting (aside from studying the test materials). I asked the same questions you did - and I found most of what I was looking for was found in the Digest. Then you will be more informed and be able to ask more specific questions for things that are confusing. You will also learn a lot as you prepare for the test and during your field walk through in May during the test day. Here's the NJ Hunting Digest in PDF form and in another online form: PDF: https://www.state.nj.us/dep/fgw/pdf/2018/dighnt18.pdf Online: http://www.eregulations.com/newjersey/hunting/ Good luck, and have fun hunting!
  11. See: https://www.state.nj.us/dep/fgw/ranges.htm
  12. I went on the website to see how much they are - and they don't have any price lists and no online purchasing which to find prices. I can only assume this follows the "If you have to ask, you can't afford it" pricing.
  13. Wow, that's a nice range... never heard of it... Range 129 Here's the website with details - $25 an hour, $37.50 for 2 people in the lane. Not bad. https://www.range129.com/rifle-range/
  14. Wait... this whole time I thought your screen name referred to deer and archery... now you are saying it refers to rainbow trout???
