  1. not much going on here, trying to stay cool this weekend, temps approaching 100 each day, probably spend some time by the pool today and tomorrow we have my nephews B Day party.
  2. ditto! I usually check the date out and somehow missed it on this one! still stand by my decision though 😎
  3. Gun shop owner recommended against the crimson trace because they become too dependent upon the laser Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My wife has had her concealed carry license for a couple years but just recently decided to carry because she is a salon business owner and has had some sketchy things going on with random cars in her parking lot etc.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Also meant to ask, did you ever end up putting the crimson trace on? Guy at our local shop recommended against it, he said people put it on and rely on it too much. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I know this is an old post but my wife just bought a little M&P Bodyguard a couple weeks ago, nice little .380 gun. she's not done a ton of shooting but she picked up on it and liked shooting this little gun. have you seen the new shields William? Looks like they've made a couple small changes, they have the Shield 380 EZ now, not sure if they've always sold a 380 in the shield model?
  7. bought a new hat recently, chose this over Nike...
  8. I agree with William, I have a Deere X320 lawn tractor bought from a local Deere dealer, if you buy from a big box store you're not getting the same product. On your list, I would recommend the Deere.
  9. better watch out Martin, you'll have all the older women's blood pressure way out of whack if you keep going in there!
  10. Congrats team 3, you guys did well. Apologize to my team for not putting any points up, it's a tough thing to do up here in the northeast, I enjoy the challenge though! Look forward to next year and this years turkey season.
  11. some good ones here!
  12. We've been spoiled here in New England, a good defensive game/chess match.. was a little frustrating to watch but definitely a change of pace from the typical high scoring shootouts throughout the league. Halftime and commercials left a whole lot to be desired.
  13. Anyone else shoot the QAD Ultra rest HDX? I went to my local bow shop couple weeks ago and had one installed. Got it dialed in for now and was really happy with how I was shooting. I had a different drop away prior to this as well but have had issues with the spring mechanism at times causing inconsistencies in my shooting and decided to try something new, really happy with this choice so far.
  14. Deer movement and activity have a lot more to do with than just the temperature, but that temp is something that will get them on their feet. As far as killing one from a stand, well it's all about being in the right area at the right time.. this time of year you need to focus strictly on food for the most part.
  15. Nice pic William, you'll hold onto that one forever. That photo shows the maturity/size of the deer well. Congrats again.
  16. Congrats to you and Allison! Great shot she put on him! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Well I’m just about done here, season ends for me next Monday and I’m heading out of town Friday morning so I might try and get out one last time tomorrow... very disappointing season for me, had a few good encounters, chose to pass a couple small ones early in the season and had two close encounters with mature deer just no ethical shot opportunity.. deer sightings the last few weeks have been very minimal. Oh well, guess it’ll be a long wait for me until next season.. maybe we’ll get some good cold weather and I’ll get to do a little hard water fishing. It’s been fun, hope to see everyone in next years. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I would think 3.5 to 4.5, I'm guessing the weight might be closer to 200, his neck definitely still looks rutted up and swollen.. makes his head/snout look fairly small. Good deer nonetheless.
  19. You did better than I. It was actually pretty tough in some. I think once you realize where to look it gets easier though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Sorry to hear that Tim, those memories will carry on forever, something you can always look back and smile on!
  21. give it a try, I started about 5 or 6 years ago, only usually get out 2-3 times each spring but I love it, weather is usually a bit different than deer hunting and if you can get one to respond to a call you'll be hooked. Get yourself a box call and a slate or glass call, they're not too difficult to do some simple calling with..
  22. Good stuff, love it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Congrats William, how to stick with it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. but then again I am in a stand I had set for archery and there is NO cover left. Anyway, will have to tell that story in the deer room later........ Oh sure William, leave everyone hanging! [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. Congrats to your son. Patience and learning when and where to take shots is a good thing to learn at a young age! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
