Everybody hops out of truck to hunt a strip of grass. we were probably 50yds from where the grass started. Vizsla and GSP take off like bats out of hell, but my French...

    Maybe the question should be why dos the USA buy oil from Russia and sells oil to places China, India, Netherlands, S. Korea?

    Ukraine-Russia war

    I'm guessing we will see more beans planted and less corn because of the unavailability of fertilizer and the planting costs for corn. Those sunk costs up front are a big risk. Having a bad year with fertilizer running around $250/ac and non-land prices to plant running over $650/ac for corn, i...

    Dog's Name

    I have always tried to use one syllable names for dogs. Yelling out some long drawn out name like Pookie Belle just never did it for me or the dog.

    What is the best pair of boots you ever owned for hunting pheasants?

    Just finished season 11 - Russell Premium Bird shooters. New Obenhauf's Heavy Duty application this past weekend. There is one thing I do not like about them. The laces are stretchy. Going to have to see if my wife will approve the purchase of replacements.

    Grouse/Woodcock vs Pheasants

    I would hunt grouse 100% of the time if I could, but I can't. To me there is no more difficult bird to hunt, and no more difficult to actually put in the bag. And no better table fare than ruffed grouse, IMO. And i am talking about ruffed grouse not sharp tails or any other versions. I hunt...
