    Are you staying home?

    I'll bet that in the back of most of our minds, there is that fear.... Investments gone...10.00 gas....bread lines... I've always said If wild bird #s come back to good levels, something bad will have to happen to agriculture.... GULP!!

    Are you staying home?

    I can save 200.00 plus and just drive up and Hunt ruffs with you!! But then I would probably just go ahead and go out west anyway. So I'll probably do the smart thing and spend 15 k on a vehicle that gets good gas mpg., then drive twice the distance!! Sounds smart to me!!

    Cutting Trees (untreated) - Shooters good or bad?

    You can eventually kill the trees by bush hogging twice a year. The trouble with that where I'm from is your habitat will quickly turn into solid fescue. Wich is terrible habitat for almost everything.

    Bad News Knee

    Yup, and be careful afterwards. The most common problems post-surgery is pushing it or falling. Before this hip surgery, some people told me that they didn't use a walker. I decided as long as I was on pain meds I was staying on it for fear of losing my balance and going down. I got off the meds...

    Hearing protection

    I have a bean I use for squirrel hunting, but I struggle to figure out direction with it. I can hear pieces of nuts hitting the ground ok but can't hear a squirrel rustling in the dry leaves right in front of me. I miss the insects at night and the songbirds in daytime. My low frequency is...

    I have the topwater pdl. They are very easy to pedal. I have more trouble getting it back in the truck than fishing out of it.
