Re: OT: OK WINTER...

Just something wrong with going to play hockey with shorts and a tee shirt on. :lol: I went to the Maple Leafs vs Blues game the other night here in St. Louis,and chatted with some people who came from Toronto to see the game (sorry about the result, Leafs fans, but your team is a good one). They s...

Re: OT: OK WINTER...

I'm looking forward to spring, but it's going to be muddy. We've been getting snow, sleet and rain since November, so when we finally get a good thaw, it's going to be a mess.

Re: OT: GradDaddy's Gun

My 12 gauge Ithica Mod 37 I bought it when I was 16 yrs old and still have it at 55 . I refinished the stock as all the finish was flaking off but is ia as solid a gun as the day it was bought new after all these years of service. https://fineartamerica.com/featured/1-into-the-dawn-gerald-strine.ht...

Re: OT: GradDaddy's Gun

I haven't fired most of the guns in my locker for years, so buying another gun seems pointless, but seeing this gun makes me want to get one just like it. I don't have a single lever action in my collection, so maybe that could be my excuse.

Re: Felt great

What good news! I'd hate to miss an entire hunting season. I hope you get a deer or two, but even if you don't, getting out there is what really counts. Good luck!

Beautiful buck, and I enjoyed reading your story. I expected to see more snow in the photo (I like snow).

Re: Update on Toxic Broadheads

There may be a "very best broadhead" but I don't know what feature it could have that would distinguish it from the rest. If they are well made, sharp and shoot accurately, they will probably yield about the same results as other similar broadheads. I say this as anything but an expert. I began cros...

Re: OT: Peruvian Ground Cherries

I spent 16 days in Peru a couple of years ago. I don't remember any specific reference to ground cherries, but I do remember that lots of their sauces were yellow with an unfamiliar but pleasant taste. I suspect that I may have sampled some Peruvian ground cherries without realizing it. Congratulati...

Re: Katana 385???

You can get them from custom shops. Don't even think about factory ones, you know.... the definition of insanity right? If you get one, look at the cam timing. If it looks good at rest, cock it and look again. Cocked is the most important cam position as it applies the most force on the arrow. If t...

Re: Biggest Moose ever with my Micro 335

That thing looks to be about the size of a large horse! A lot bigger job than I'm used to with whitetails, but I'd love to have that chore. Congratulations!

Re: My first crossbow deer!

Great job, and I bet it was a satisfying experience. This may have been your first, but I bet we will get tired of reading about all of your future successes on this site. Get back out there and get another one!

Re: Party Started Widout Me!

I wasn't upset at all, I was just trying to warn you in case you didn't realize baiting is illegal in MO. Every state's laws are different. I am glad to hear that. I will tell the tick toters to abide by my poster that says tree rats allowed to feed only in the back yard. Yer correct baitin is ille...
