  1. I'm having way more fun with this than I thought. Feels natural. I have watched so many car repair videos in my life its not even funny. So I guess I just forget I'm recording and can just be myself. There's a 4 part series coming on this boat I was working on yesterday. 2013 Formula 37PC. Beautiful midsized cabin cruiser. Also noticed the nice sunset as I left work. I drive basically due west for 40 miles home so I thought hey what the heck, I'll hit record, put the phone on the dash and chat about how I got to where I am and a little of my background. These forums are mentioned one of the videos, I believe it is the last video of the little "Meet the guy behind the camera" series. Just gonna roll with it and see what happens. Only had 12 subs when I went to bed now there is 14, even that is exciting at this point.😄 Enjoy. Its gonna be really fun once the ice goes bye-bye for the summer folks. Strap your hats on and enjoy the ride.
  2. Guess it would help if I attached the pic email? Need more coffee.😆
  3. Very cool!! Had one follow our golden retriever back, after he chased it off the property. No sooner did the dog return to my call, did his "heel" at my feet. Look up and hear comes a black wolf across the pasture right for us. Followed the line in this picture, stopped at the X and Gus leaped off the deck to about where the front corner of the car is. Luckily it was wise enough not to return the second time or he would have had a face full of buckshot. Coyote populations are through the roof here. Don't need these buggers with them. My neighbor had one feeding at her manure pile every morning last year. How she didn't lose any sheep or goats is beyond me.
  4. That is great Lewis! I'd consider that for sure! Put me on a big ole NS black bear.😎😁 My uncle is an outfitter here in Eastern Ontario. Couple people from here have hunted with him. He's been doing it all his life.
  5. Thank you guys for watching! Appreciate it. This is a new adventure to me. This covid crap has made me more thankful for what I have, and I enjoy sharing with you guys. Just uploaded one, and one more uploading at the moment of the dog and I checking on our fish shack. I will warn you I fell through some top ice and said the S word.😅 Trying to keep the content as clean and family oriented as possible, I will be working on the editing to avoid any of that in the future. Should get fun once I'm back to work, I plan on doing a little vlogging when I can. You will see how much I love what I do! If you like boats and are a DIY, you may want to hit that subscribe button! Going into work tomorrow and tearing down a Mercruiser 8.2L big block to find a tick in the engine.😎
  6. Keep adding more too. This is fun! Subscribe for more.
  7. https://youtu.be/PZzdi-jvM-g Hopefully this one works!
  8. Great filming Gary! You are *very* lucky to even see one let alone get it on film and be successful. As you know I'm sure, wolves are quite a bit more wise than coyotes, extremely elusive during the day and rarely show their faces. Crazy smart animals! My neighbor had a big black one like that at her farm last year. It would come in and eat at the manure pile every morning when she went to the barn at 4 or 5am. She has all sorts of animals including sheep. No idea how it didn't get one. I was going to go down and take care of it for her but just never worked out. A couple months ago my wifey let our golden retriever out for a pee just before sunrise and the dog put the run on one across the field. I was still asleep but was awoken to the commotion, by the time I grabbed my rifle and ran outside it was long gone and Gus was back at the deck proud as a peacock that he ran it off. Kayla said it was as big or bigger than Gus who is at least 80 pounds, and looked black. So I'm assuming it was that wolf or one of his buddies. Usually just have coyotes around where I live and you don't really see wolves until you get 50 miles or so to the west and north. But as stated in the video they do travel quite a bit. Have the trail cam out with road kill deer carcasses in the winter time and have yet to get any wolves on the cam. Just coyotes, and boy do we have a pile of them here. From dusk til dawn they howl and carry on within a couple hundred yards of the house. Great video, don't know how I didn't see it before now. With the little activity going on here nowadays I'll usually pop into the lounge once a week and that's about it.
  9. Yeah around there. Case holds 90.6gr of water. Max load according to the nosler manual for a 160gr accubond is 75gr of IMR 7828. Last ones I whipped up in the .260 was 44gr of H4350. Pretty sure I'm going with the Burris Veracity 5-25x50. FFP, MOA, ballistic reticle, has the MAD turrets and sunshade with it.
  10. Good to hear! I'll probably settle on that or similar for now, even cheaper, then save for the Nightforce competition 15-55x52. Never thought I'd even contemplate spending over 3K on a scope.😬😳🤣 Rifle showed up today. Wasn't sure if I'd like the stock or not but its growing on me. May eventually get a darker sendero stock or a bell and Carleson like I had on the Weatherby. The black with grey webbing. The STW sure dwarfs the 260 and 308.😮😁
  11. Everything seems to be in stock here. Haven't really reloaded in 10 years or close to it. Primers seem to be around s $7/hundred, powder is $50-$60/pound. Bullets are all over the place. Most recent ones I bought were the 129gr Nosler ABLR for the .260.... think they were $80 or $90 per 100. As for optics, I'm not really sure yet. Kind of have an "in" with a local Leupold rep. There is a new model coming this year I may get once he gets one for a sample. I just wish they had broader magnification without having to spend thousands on the VX5 and 6 line. We'll see what the new one is for magnification options. I'd really like to play with that CDS. Open to others though... I like the Burris Veracity 5-25x50. Maybe a higher end Vortex. Maybe even a Bushnell with a 4.5-30x50.
  12. Thanks William. It comes with 100 brass and the dies, yes. Just need to get some IMR 7828 or H1000 powder to make some loads.
  13. Looks like it's designed for heavy stuff. The Xbolt in the new 6.8 has a 1 in 7.5" twist! Should work good! Thanks Don, really looking forward to playing with the STW. Always been intrigued by that big long 7mm cartridge. I'd like to try loading some 120gr ballistic tips for coyotes. Can you imagine?!😂😎 180 and 195gr Berger for long range showing off. Looking at the ballistics the STW even blows the doors off the .338 Lapua when it comes to bullet flight and speed.😁
  14. Interesting! Curious to see if it's 6.5 or 6.8, isn't a 6.8 shooting .277 projectiles like the .270 WSM is though? Saw a Tikka T3 for sale that had been rebarreled for a 6.5x300WSM and thought it would be a pretty good shooter. Of all of the new ones recently I really like the look of that 6.5 PRC! And the .300 PRC. But hey, the oldies will do it just as well when you feed them the modern bullets that you're feeding the new ones. I opted for a .260 Remington in my Tikka mainly because of the creedmoor craze fan boys ranting and raving about it. I know it's a great cartridge! But holy...... some of these guys are just out of control! LOL! Another one on the way for me is another oldie, 700 Sendero in 7mm STW. I was all hot to trot on the 300 WSM when it first came out, now I find myself shooting the older stuff again.
  15. Another boomer for the collection! Remington 700 Sendero 7mm STW! Anyone ever load for one of these creatures?🤓😁
  16. Well after 3 months I sold the Renegade 1000 I bought. Well I should say did a trade deal for a slightly older machine, with cash added from the guy who got my renegade. It was an absolute riot to squeeze the throttle on a 90hp atv but it just wasn't practical for me. I put a hitch on it and was planning on putting racks on the front and back to carry stuff. But finally came to terms it would be a better idea to just get an Outlander! Put an ad up looking for a trade and was offered this 2011 Outlander XXC 800. Drove down to the Toronto area on Monday and got it. Much happier with this! It's got all the bells and whistles and setup like the Renegade, but with a utility body on it instead.
  17. Sorry for the lunch box letdown guys.... apparently I need better internet. Video was 8 minutes long and after 24 hours of uploading it was only at 40% so I gave up LOL! I'll try the next one in a different format and post a link when I'm successful.
  18. Merry Christmas Steve to you and Diana. Nice to see you in here.
  19. LOL! Yes dang video screwed up, re-uploading as we speak. And yes, I am trying to speak as normal as possible without some of our weird slang that would probably leave most of you folks scratching your heads.😂
  20. Well since I am officially in my second week of my winter break from work, I've been starting to find things to keep me occupied. Found an old video camera I had purchased at least 10 years ago that I have never hardly even turned on, so I got a card for it and decided to try some vlogging during the day while I'm out and about. Today I brought it with me back to where I hunt coyotes. Didn't get any today, but was kind of cool documenting it. Check it out if you wish, I plan on trying to do at least a few a week so subscribe to my channel if you're interested! EDIT! First upload screwed up part way through, uploading again, standby! lol
  21. Not really panicking buying yet up here like in the spring. But they are threatening travel restrictions on people who don't get this magical vaccine once it's available to us. Pretty rediculous. Justin Trudeau can touch his toe with one hand and stick himself in the posterior with the other with my vaccine, because I ain't getting it!!!! Still tons of ammo up here. Even picked up 4 boxes of .260 Remington the other day at a local mom and pop store for my new rifle. Which is an uncommon cartridge these days (compared to some other 6.5 umm what's it called again Don?😂) that has taken over the 6.5 family again... j/k!!) Had no shortage of the common ones either! Wouldn't surprise me if it starts soon though. Nearing 2000 cases/day here in Ontario. Was around the 500-600 mark when lockdown happened in the spring. MUCH more testing being done now though, which the lefty media takes full advantage of and sways its followers with.
  22. Sounds like an exciting hunt! Way to go Bentley!
  23. Feeling bad for you folks down there regarding the election! Was at the camp all last week for the second and final week of our rifle season. It was 70-80 degrees until the Thursday when it cooled off. Deer were not moving at all!! First year our camp got skunked in a long time. Hopefully I'll connect between now and the end of December with the bow. Forecasting 10-14 inches of snow over the next 4 days, hopefully that will kick them into gear!
  24. What a bummer! Dad showed me a spot in a page wire fence he hit with the .308 about 35 years ago when shooting at a deer. Luckily he can handle his BLR like John Wayne and smoked him on the second shot.
