  1. 2017 Hunting Photo Contest

    The 6 1/2 or 7 1/2 year old droptine buck I've been hunting for 3 years and still have never seen in person. Only 2 daytime trail cam pictures ever and he walked through my foodplot on the 9th this year while I was at work. I think he called my office to see if I was there before he came through
  2. Muzzleloader question

    I just take the primer out and keep the gun in my unheated garage. With blackhorn powder there's no reason to unload as it goes boom just the same after being loaded for 10 days as it does after being loaded for 10 minutes. I've tried this for 2 years in a row as a test because I always thought I might have to unload an recharge during the season but not a problem.
  3. Muzzleloader question

    Blackhorn 209 is where it's at. The key is to make sure you use a magnum shotshell primer with that powder.

  7. Legacy- 2017 Deer Season

    Congratulations Guppy and family on some awesome bucks!! No signs of the rut out here in east central NY in 5R. Pulled cards on 5 cameras that were soaking for a week on 2 properties and hunted both morning and afternoons and all deer movement is still first and last 2 hours of the day and lots of nightime pictures. Bucks and does feeding calmly and acting like it's October but I think the cold snap this week and weekend will really get things going. It's always interesting to see how the rut progresses in different parts of the state and western NY is always first and it seems to work it's way east.

    Wow nice buck DJ. Congratulations. Hopefully you had comprehensive coverage on your car for the deer hit and rental to get you a car while you're is being repaired. November is when I start to get a lot of calls from my clients about that same thing and we have to get a claim setup.
  12. Crop planting

    Yes to winter rye. My neighbor farms a lot of rye straw and he is plowing and seeding this week. The rye usually gets a few inches tall before winter and seems to draw deer late season if there is no corn around. It is also the first thing to green up in the spring and then they cut and bale it before it seeds out in early summer.

  15. Best value for line counter reels

    I've had some Tica Seaspirit's for several years and next to the Tekota I think they are a very solid option. They are not a reel you see or hear about very often outside of their micro ice fishing reels but you can get them for right around $100 and I think they have a great drag and have held up very well. I like them better than my Diawa Sealines. Looks like Walmart has them for $95. Here's a link to them.
