    2017 Season Rant (don't read if you don't like rants.. ha ha)

    Have had an awful year. Not a lot of hunting because I'm redoing my kitchen but have gotten out a few times. Mostly short hunts which yield everything from no deer sightings to 1 full day with many miles on the boots with no activity. However, the other day I was just starting out at first...

    Mossberg 500 Slug Gun Ammo?

    My brother has a 12 gauge mossberg 500 with a slug barrel and wants to sight it in. I'm going to take him to the range this weekend. Any recommended rounds on a budget for a good 50-75 yard shot? Please don't say accutips either. ha ha.

    Ethics Test Today - New Scope Multiplication Problems...

    Ordered a new Leupold VX-2 scope this week and received 2 in the mail today. My first thought was... well I do have 2 eyes. :) One is going back but for a second thought that someone in their shipping department was trying to be nice to me. Anyways, skoal to all my HC friends. Season is...

    EBH outfitters?

    Has anyone hunted with them? They are apparently up near the CA border in NY. Not sure what the trrrain or deer are like though. Feedback? I am looking for something out of state and will go as far as Ohio but would like someplace that has a higher chance of scoring a big deer than most of...

    1-4 scopes on a muzzleloader?

    Considering getting one. Currently have a 2-7x32 leupold but might move that to my shotgun and put a 1-4 on my muzzy. Thoughts from those that use them?

    Deer season is over for me

    Will say this, I saw more deer during my last 3 hour hunt today than I saw all season. I think the snow has sent them hunting for food and was clear where they were ripping up the leaves for acorns. Spot a, b, and c are all within a 200 yard area. Spot a or c would have been 5-10 yard shots at...

    Deer decoys?

    What's everyone's thoughts on using the folding or other decoys? Reviews for the folding Montana decoys seems mixed.

    Having a cold during the rut

    Took yesterday off to go out for an all day sit but battling a bad cold only did the afternoon. I found a newish scrape that is a solid 4 ft wide and had to spend some quality time near there. With this cold and cool windy weather, my cold seemed to get worst and should not have not gone out...

    Home chores interfere with deer hunting or does deer hunting interfere with chores?

    My wife and I have been having this conversation a lot lately. I told her I would check with some experts on the subject. ha ha.

    Had something weird happen last night

    Was in a tree stand last night in a funnel. I used the grunt tube on and off for a bit then heard a deer come in nearby. Unsure if it was just a noisy squirrell, I waited and then heard some vey light sparing along with movement. Guessing I genuinely called in two bucks to fight?

    Blaze vs Blaze Horizon?

    I lost a lot of weight and need a new hunting jacket. My old one is so oversize I feel like I'm wearing a sleeping bag. For safety, the blaze is obviously better but takes some of the camo ability away. but with a camo backpack on and sleeves in camo, I think that is reduced a bit. Camo coat...

    Tikka T3 Lite Vs T3X Lite?

    OK, I traded in my savage 11 in 308 last winter for a savage 220. The 220 is silly accurate out to 150 yards. I have not tried beyond that. Will be what I hunt with this year and cannot imagine ever needing anything more for NH hunting. However, I have been wanting a rifle again. Don't think I...

    It's Dangerous Out There - Be Careful

    Yup, the ticks are out. Just pulled my first one of the season off. Had to dig em out too. I have checked myself after every trip too except for yesterday. This afternoon I feel an itch on my back and I was feeding a vampire. I swear, instead of a tick bite, I would rather be charged by a bear...
