    I resigned myself to creating a YouTube account and uploaded it there to post here.  It was actually easier to do it that way.  I too have had challenges trying to post video and getting errors; and rather than trying to fix it, I just found a workaround.

    mazzgolf got a reaction from hvnj in Murphy's new NEW GUN CONTROL PLANS   
    You have expressed in one sentence what theologians and philosophers (atheist and theist alike) have been wrestling with for literally centuries. Today we called it "The Problem of Suffering and Evil". Believe it or not, there are very good answers to your question. If you are truly interested in how a Christian believer would answer the Problem of Evil, I recommend reading this and watching these short animated videos here and here. I believe after you read and watch, you will say, "Hmmm... that does make sense." You may not fully agree with it, but I think you'll come away thinking about it differently. It used to bother me a lot, but no more. I still think about it, but intellectually it answers that question for me.
    You think they aren't going to come after your deer rifle at some point in time? You are sorely mistaken. These people will not rest until every gun is outlawed and confiscated (oh, I'm sorry, I mispoke - "part of a mandatory buy back program"). People on the left cheer what happened in Australia, and often call for the outright abolishment of the 2A here. Your deer rifle, to them, is a weapon of war and should not be in civilian hands (and the way the reputation of police has taken a beaten in the past year, it would not surprise me if they outright abolish these weapons from the police, leaving them with only the military).

    Crazy thing is - this year we saw a lot of migrators... I thought it was much more than what we saw the last 2 years. After all the birds I saw this year, I was hoping they would increase the limit back to 3! It never occurred to me they would reduce it even more.

    As anglers take advantage of the ongoing striped bass run, New Jersey’s Conservation Police Officers have been busy enforcing the size and creel limits for this popular game fish. Calls to the 877-WARN-DEP line concerning violations have directed the officers’ attention to individuals whose illegal activities did not go unnoticed by law-abiding sportsmen and women. The officers have also been checking in on past trouble spots. 
    Between April 8 and April 11, Conservation Police Officer Robert Driscoll and Lieutenant Joseph Kuechler, with the assistance of Deputy Chief Frank Panico, continued their enforcement efforts of the striped bass regulations along the Hudson River and Newark Bay Complex in Hudson and Union Counties. They issued a total of 67 summonses for violations of undersize and over the limit striped bass with potential fines amounting to over $15,000.  
    Meanwhile on the Raritan Bayshore, Conservation Police Officers Robert Henderson, Ed Klitz, Christopher Moscatiello and James Woerner patrolled the evening hours of April 9 and apprehended five individuals with multiple striped bass violations. In total, more than 20 sublegal striped bass were seized for undersized and overlimit violations. 
    On the evening of April 10 and into the early morning hours of April 11, seventeen Conservation Police Officers from across the state participated in an overt and covert operation focusing on the harvesting of illegal striped bass along the Raritan Bayshore in Middlesex and Monmouth counties. Nearly 100 inspections were made resulting in over thirty summonses issued for a variety of striped bass-related violations. The possession of undersized fish was the most common violation.  
    The Division of Fish and Wildlife’s Bureau of Law Enforcement plans to continue targeted enforcement of striped bass fishing activity as long as the schools of “linesiders” continue to tempt unethical anglers. 
    Striped Bass regulations can be found in the Division’s free New Jersey Marine Digest available at many sporting goods stores and online here: www.njfishandwildlife.com/digmar.htm 
    Anglers may catch and keep one striped bass per day. The striped bass must measure between 28 and 38 inches. Recreational anglers aged 16 or older must obtain a free annual Saltwater Angler Registry certificate if they are fishing in the marine or tidal waters of the state. Additional regulations apply. The fine for possession of undersized or overlimit striped bass is $100 per fish plus court costs.

    And September season does nothing for our resident population - down here at least, almost all of our fields still have crops on them.  I'd love to know the numbers of the Sept. harvest --- it can't be a lot.

    September goose is a joke. The resident birds are in parks, athletic fields, and golf courses. They aren’t anywhere you can hunt them.

    Just saw Canada goose limit will be only 1 bird next season in the North and South zones with a 30 day season . Still going to have the September resident season and the late extended season in the designated zones.     Sucks !

    mazzgolf got a reaction from archer36 in Smoker recommendation   
    I heard so many bad things about those Masterbuilts with the Bluetooth. When I researched getting a smoker a few years ago, alot of people complained about that one. When the time comes, you might want to consider getting one "less technologically advanced" - I got the smaller 30" Masterbuilt - no bluetooth and has the solid (non-glass) door. Has been working fine for me. I don't use it a ton, but its a few years old now and still works like it did when I bought it. I do keep it stored in my sunroom that is attached to the house - it is not in the climate controlled house, but not out in the weather either.
    I will say I did buy one of those Thermoworks Smoke temperature gauges - I don't rely on the built in temp gauge that is in the smoker itself. It is a neat unit that you can use to remotely check in on the temp (has two probes - one for the air temp, one for the meat temp).

    mazzgolf got a reaction from Eyesofthewoods in Decoy setups?   
    When on edge of a field or an open area, I like having 2 decoys - a jake/hen pair. I had a gobbler come in and beat up my Avian-X jake last year  Wasn't the first time I had a Tom come in and pick a fight with my jake decoy.
    I will also say, though, I'm a bit upset with my Avian-X in that after the first year I had it, it started leaking at the place where you put the stake. I tried everything to stop it, and can't. For the price I paid, it should last more than a year without leaking air. It isn't horrible - once the pressure equalizes, it stops deflating and it doesn't deflate all the way. It still has some shape - but still, it shouldn't leak for the price I paid.
    Anyway - that's what I like to do - jake/hen pair on the edge of a field. If I'm in a wooded area, I don't put out decoys - those are only for open areas. Not worth carrying around and setting up in the woods when they won't even see the decoys unless they are close enough where I can get a shot anyway.  When in the woods, I let them come searching for me... but out in the field, since I know they can see the decoys from a long distance away, I'll put them out there and maybe attract one from over 75 yards away (as this one did - once it saw my decoys, it bee-lined it from a long ways away):
