    Been taking advantage of some Mass stocked ponds. Took my limit of 3 rainbow trout 2 days in a row. Roasted a couple whole, stuffed with lemon, garlic, sweet onion, and herbs.

    Remington? Model 783

    Very interested in this rifle. Its a bargain rifle, so the stock scope and not the prettiest design will be fine for me. Seems like it might be a Cabelas/Gander Mtn. Exclusive, if anyone sees them at a local gun shop or anywhere else I'd like to compare prices. Anyone own or shoot one of these...

    Next Season

    Its looking like I am going to be moving back to Eastern Mass after my last semester here in Springfield. Just really started to piece the puzzle together of the public land that Ive been hunting on the past couple years out here. The total area is a few thousand acres, which I like because...

    What is your favorite method for the rut?

    I know it varies for archery and gun season for most, but what is your favorite method/set up for the rut? I'm talking hunting ridges, over scrapes/rubs, runs coming out of swamps,etc. What have you had the most success doing? I think it would be interesting to see the different ways everyone...

    Doe and Fawn under me

    Had a doe and fawn come in and hang out directly under me for about 5 min then they circled around for another 15 min or so. Mother wasnt eating just licking knee height branches. Cool to see them that close. Heres a video I took.

    Need some Topo help

    I searched and read a few previous threads and watched some videos on the basics, but I am still not great at reading topo maps. I have a general idea of what to look for, and I have found some sign based off of them. There is an area of the property I am hunting that I just figured out deer are...

    Drury Outdoor's Thirteen

    A friend recommended Drury Outdoors and Under Armor's partnership series called Thirteen. I can't find out how to watch it, just curious if anyone knows how to. It says it isn't currently airing on the outdoor channel. Also, if you have seen it what is your opinion of it? Here is the link to the...

    For those of you who use decoys; what brands, set ups, and techniques do you use? Last year I had luck with a strutting tom standing over a laying hen ready to be bred (carry lite I believe), with an inflatable feeding hen to the side on a moving stake. Shot a jake and had 2 toms standing about...

    Mass Muzzleloading law

    I am trying to find out for a friend what is the "correct" law regarding purchasing and hunting with a muzzleloader in Mass. I have a FID and bought mine in NH and the place still required me to show it and fill out the same forms as when I bought my shotgun there, but they told me that it was...

    Smoothbore set up

    Any one else use their smooth bore for shotgun season? I'm using my 870 with an improved choke and as of now federal vital shok truball slugs. They are very accurate at 50 yards for me. Also, got my Remington scope mount and a Millet red dot sight on it. What is your set up?

    First Snow day

    Drove an hour to my buddies house in zone 9, and was in the stand by 8. Didnt really like the spot I put the stand, and wanted to check out the area so got down around 10. Found a decent spot along a stream that looked like a funnel so i set up the new blind there. It was still raining at this...

    Afternoon Hunts

    So I just went through my schedule and realized I am basically only going to have time to hunt weekday afternoons. From about 1 to legal light I can get to my spots and actually hunt. What should I focus on most, not being able to hunt mornings or full days?

    Scent Control

    Waited to the last minute to wash all my gear, and was wondering what every one else uses for scent control products. I am using Sport Wash by ATSKO for a detergent, and bought the Dead Down Wind combo pack mostly for the deodorant and soap. When my stuff is dry im gonna put it in a plastic bin...
