  1. Twenty or thirty years ago the Sierra Club was a legitimate outdoor organization. They were not opposed to sport hunting. One of their main focuses was to try to interdict the tons of litter illegal aliens were leaving behind when passing through wilderness areas in the southwest. Then the Mexican cell phone billionaire Carlos Slim bought them off with a huge donation. They forgot about the mess left by the illegal aliens and started to oppose hunting. Sierra Club is a total enemy of sportsmen. The whole idea of turning the DWGNRA into a national park is national parks do not allow hunting.
  2. Historically there has been no enforcement of anything on NWS. If they will have retired LEO's patrolling on ATV's I hope their priority will be to go after the illegal ATV riders rather than harrass hunters
  3. In my stand Z6---NWS. I think there's a duck hunter in the nearby swamp. There was a truck parked near where I park with a kayak on top.. Yup there they go just heard 4shots now 6, but they are further away than I expected.
  4. No memory is not the first thing to go it's the second....I forgot what the first thing is
  5. Yes luck is a major factor. A hunter can scout an area and confirm there are deer in an area and determine their patterns, but it is still necessary to be in the right place at the right time. That is the luck factor.
  6. It wouldn't surprise me..... Nothing in this stupid state would
  7. I generally agree, but I did have a problem with shell ejection. I sent it back to Savage and they fixed it no charge. I must say the extractors are flimsy. The only other issue I have is a cosmetic one. The bolt lever is enormous!!! It's not a functional problem it just looks peculiar. One feature on mine I like is the three position safety. In the safe position the bolt cannot be opened. This prevents that enormous bolt lever from getting caught on something and partially opening the action. There is a position between "safe" and "fire" that allows the bolt to open but it cannot fire. I have heard the newer ones don't have that feature.
  8. It sucked long before that, mainly when they stopped raising browns
  9. They allegedly stocked the Flatbrook on Thursday. I fished Werner's and the Mud Hole late Thursday afternoon....They certainly didn't stock there.. There was one large trout in Werner's that was rising for the occasional caddis. I went to tie one on and realized I didn't have my magnifying lenses so I was unable to get the leader through the loop. I thought l left the magnifiers in the waders I recently gave away. When I got home the magnifiers and a bunch if strike indicators were in my garage so I must have taken these out of my old waders,but didn't put them in my new waders.
  10. Out in Z6 sinc before dawn. haven't seen anything not even a squirrel
  11. I'm 73 and still use a climber. However, I have lost a lot of strength being so old. I cannot draw my compound and I'm not real accurate with the recurve so I switched to a crossbow. I hate that effing contraption. It is insane to carry the xbow while backpacking a treestand. So I put an API lock on in one area. I use my TreeWalker to install the lockon. I have another climber that I got cheap, but it weighs a ton. I roll it in on my deer cart and leave it fastened to the base of a tree in the NWS. The first time I went to use it there was a note on it from some guy that has a lock-on nearby. So I moved it. I got up in it Friday and noticed another lock-on 30 yds away. So I carted it completely out of the area. I'm going to put it in the zone 6 area of NWS this week, because I'm getting the Z6 extended bow permit. The xbow is also a pain in the ass once up in the treestand. It is just sooo awkward. The only redeeming factor is it is as accurate as a rifle out to 50+ yards. I also hate the scope on it. It has a short eye relief made for xbows. So if I have a camo mask on my breath fogs it up. I'm not ready to sell my TreeWalker. I'm not familiar with the climber you are selling, but IMO the TreeWalker is the best stand money can buy. I'm sure the one you are selling is good too GLWS. Sorry for using your FS post to vent.
  12. Just got into natural blind in NWS Z3. Probably should have gon to my lock on in Z6
