  1. I won it the first year. Great group of guys and Rich is a good friend. Just a far ride after hunting for 24 hours for us North jersey folk.
  2. I use match since FMJ are illegal to hunt with in NJ.
  3. 22 mag is as mentioned more of a fox round. A head shot in a yote 100 yards and in will do the trick but most body shots you will have a runner. My choice for yotes is .204 35 grain Berger Bullet in the HSM ammo. It is much more fur friendly than VmaX ballistic tips. Those damn Vmax turn into little bombs if they hit any bone. We run a three gun setup when predator hunting during daylight here in NJ and anytime in NY. 17 Hornet for any foxes that come out, .204 for the yotes and have a Shotgun for close encounters. If I had to pick one gun it would be the .2o4 with the HSM 35 grain setup. A yote or bobcat(Not in NJ before any keyboard police comment) comes out you just hold and squeeze and if a fox comes out you just need to hit the soft spots and it won’t rip it up to bad.
  4. Haven’t seen a Harley in a long time. They are such cool ducks. Great pics
  5. After two binocs and one rangefinder broke and they wanted me to send it in and wait 4 months for repair or replacement I will never buy bushnell again.
  6. Just placed the order on Monday for the Orion Pro Pack. After getting busted twice by my target bear last week I figured why not give it a shot. I’ll have it tomorrow and taking with me to Illinois in two weeks. If you see it for sale in 3 weeks you know the answer.
  7. I run 10 Covert cell cams. 7 2018 models and 3 2019. I have been using the coverts since 2012 and the earlier models had some issues for sure but I have not had a single issue with any of these. I love the HQ picture option without having to pull the card. I usually get anywhere from 20-25k pics every three months so they get a work out. I run them on 12 volt batteries and usually get A month out of them. I think they charge me $175 every three months when I have them all up but usually on run all 10 for 6 months and that is for almost 30k pictures.
  8. Tom they are swamped right now with the issues on the app update. Just use the chat feature. I haven’t waited more than 5 mins with it and they get whatever you need done. I have 7 2018 cams and 1 2019 and they are all working flawlessly.
  9. Heading up with a buddy in the AM. Enjoy the day
  10. My buddy has one. It’s a beast but it is a bit clunky
  11. I am at the tail end of a full Reno at our condo. Redid the whole place including the floors. Went with Shaw LVP and we are super happy. My labs haven’t been able to make a mark on them. I looked at everything out there and cortec seems to be the best but has limited colors and Shaw is number two. Good luck
  12. Guys just a little add to this mineral conversation. Spent a lot of time on this topic and one thing I haven’t seen anyone bring up is ground prep for your mineral site. The goal here is to have deer hit your ground site to take in minerals to help does with lactation along with helping bucks grow bigger antlers. So one can assume one of the biggest factors is the amount in which is absorbed. You can’t control how much they eat but your can potentially help them absorb more of what they do eat by prepping your site. The dirt is loaded with parasites and bacteria. Yes, the deer are living outside and are exposed to many of them already. But when you attract deer to a single spot and have them digging and licking the ground in groups why not give them the best shot at success. Usually about 3 weeks before a site will be setup I would use fast acting Ag Lime and spread it in a 6 foot circle. It will kill off a lot of the crap and give you a better starting point. Not imperative but certainly can’t hurt. Best of luck out there
  13. First off I am sorry for your lose, it never gets easy. Give Mike at Delaware River labs a call if you are looking for a hunting dog . Mike is an old school breeder who takes pride in the health and hunting ability in his dogs. He has two litters in the oven right now. Here is my guy from him that is a machine even at 11. I will be breeding my guy with one of his females this summer I hope and taking a pup. Delaware River Labradors
