    Agreed. They have the know how in the manual to break down the whole gun, but for regular cleaning its not necessary to go that far.

    What do you drink after hunting?

    Depends on how the day went. Hoisting a heavy buck up onto the game pole can generate quite a thirst.

    I’ll try to get some up, but “finished” will be a relative term, its still a work in progress!

    While the timbers are green they are still true (square, haven’t shrunk, no twist, etc), as they dry out those characteristics unfold. The joinery resists some of that, but they will still check and shrink creating some gaps in the fit. I have cut a few frames from seasoned wood, including my...

    New to hunting...Advice?

    These panels have a small 3” wide plywood spline on the back side of the OSB to join the panels, but there is no thermal break through the whole thickness of the panel. Each joint has a channel that gets filled with spray foam about midway through its thickness. The envelope is pretty tight...

    I’d eat bologna for a few months and save up enough for a Woodman Arms if I were you. Then again, your freezer is probably ready to shear a hinge pin holding all that venison in so you shouldn’t be spending any money on meat...........there I justified the purchase for you right there.

    I thought I had a more recent exterior picture but I guess not. The roofing is on and most of the exterior trim, siding will wait until spring. We are moved in, although not entirely complete. Most interior work is complete with the exception of some window and door trim and interior...
