Re: Just Lovin my Assassin 360

1922 days till retirement But who’s counting, right? ;) I’ve been [mostly] retired about that many days. Funny, I never thought this would happen to me, but after five years of early retirement, I’m actually getting bored! At least in the summertime. I’ll never get bored during deer season though!

Re: Trudeau all talk, no walk on gun bans

cessation may soon follow.
Alberta is at 86% in favor, Saskatchewan just over 75%, Manitoba at 66%
Make ya a deal: how about the US swaps you those three provinces for California and New York!
Heck, act now and we’ll even throw Chicago in for free! :)

Re: Happy Canada Day !

Wow, that Ontario pool water looks to be ice-free! Summer must have come a little early this year! ;)

So what is “Canada Day”, exactly?

Stop trying to confuse people with the facts. Global Warming is the new religion, you heretic!

Re: Deer hunting out of state - where to go?

Good Grief! If you live in Canada, why would you not go to Saskatchewan??? That beats anyplace in the US!

Re: 2 blade broadheads

I use an oversized fixed blade, single bevel broadhead called the Centaur Battleaxe. (See photo in my avatar.). I use Blazer vanes fletched at max LW helical, which matches the LEft-bevel of the broadhead. As improbable as it seems, the thing spins like a football and POI is same as my field points ...

Re: Excalibur Summer Promotion Email -Canadian's Read Fine Print

Wow, that’s really crappy, considering Excalibur is a Canadian company—or at least was, until it was bought by Bowtech. I guess there’s your answer!

Sidearms add a lot of weight. Just wear a pair a trail runners, and bring along a fat friend! :)

Re: Fun with the 'hot' BD400 yesterday. ...until my screws loosened up

I had that exact problem years ago with my 2000-vintage Exocet. You would think that after all these years Excalibur would have gotten that problem solved! A big part of the problem—as I see it—is that the screw they use is way under-sized for the task. I think it’s only a #10 or maybe even a #8. It...

Re: Nuisance Deer I’ll Be doing my part this Fall

I had a problem this spring with deer eating my tulips at night. It looked like they actually deep-throated the entire flower and stem, and nipped it right off at the ground! I sprinkled the survivors with cayenne pepper, and they were never touched again! Another thing that works is buy a bar of th...

Re: BC Pipeline Ruling In

Any Indigenous group that wishes to participate in the purchase bid is welcome, he said, and would not be required to invest any money of their own. “What we’re proposing is zero risk for First Nations,” Wapass said. “We’re not asking them to invest anything other than their time to look at what’s ...

Re: Nuisance Deer I’ll Be doing my part this Fall

If you live in the “city”, but can walk one way for ten miles without hitting another road, you must be in Canada. Ain’t no cities like that in the lower 48! A fence around the garden works. If you hang burlap on it or make it opaque some other way, it only needs to be five foot high. Deer won’t jum...

Re: Trudeau announces ‘digital charter,’ tells social media companies to fight fake news or be fined

Sure hope y’all can turn things around up there. The election results in Australia are promising!
England of course is lost, but maybe its former colonies can wriggle out of its toxic social/political grasp.

Re: Opportunity Knocks Canada!

Wow, it’s flipped in just the last couple months! When’s the Election? Probably sounds like dumb question, but here in the USA we get absolutely no news about Canada at all. In fact, I recall when Jay Leno did his “man on the street” routine and asked college students what two countries bordered the...

Re: FIBERBOARD SHEATHING TARGETS

In our archery club we made the backstop as you describe, but laid up strips of carpet and compressed those. Much better I think than the stuff you’re talking about.

But as others have mentioned, disposal is a PITA once it’s reached the end of its useful life.
