    The "New" Cabin by the pond

    This building was sold as a repo unit so I got it much cheaper and it already had insulation in it. Going to get started finishing the inside this weekend. That machine they use is pretty dang impressive and the guy who set it up was great and I was shocked by how easily he move this building...

    2020 Whitetail Success Thread

    I didn't see any of these started. If I missed it please delete. Wife on the board. She shot this deer with a 308 broadside at 20 yards. It was still alive 2 hours later and things "got a little western" when I was trying to finish it off. That bullet went straight through and never touched...

    ORORO Heated Vests

    Anyone else use one of these? I got one for Christmas last year. Sounds kinda lame but I promise you these things are great! I highly recommend them if you get cold easily or for women and children than you want to get into the outdoors when it is cold. Go ahead and say it...meanwhile I'll be...

    Bull Breeding Call - Identification

    This year when my bull was charging in looking for his last cow he was making a noise I had never heard before while hunting elk. I thought I had heard them all, but this was a new one to me for sure. When he was coming in he was making a noise similar to a cow. I assume it was some kind of...

    FALL PLANTING - SERPENTS....

    Found this under the brush hog at our lease.... 12 rattles. 13 babies inside of it. When they came spewing out the 9MM bullet holes they were striking at anything that moved...right up until I gave them the stick coup-de-grace..... Got the fields planted.

    The 40 Acres

    And so it begins....1000' of waterline. And yes, that took a full day and no I couldn't find a ride on to rent.... Plus my wife's uncles duramax caught on fire and burned to the ground....Heater core wire shortage is our guess. Then my dog stepped on a piece of glass and had to go...

    7MM - IMR 4064

    Once again. This "old school" powder is proving its worth on my reloading shelf. Put a new Leupold scope on his Steyr rifle for him. Good enough for me at 100 yards. Certainly good enough for my wife's uncle who never shoots over 200 yards anyhow. Group on left was out of a Steyr 7MM Group on...

    Covid-19 Effects on Fall 2020 Hunts

    Lot of stir going around in the last few days about the Virus coming back in full force this fall. I think there is a good chance that hunts will be cancelled in a bunch of the western states for the fall. What are you thoughts?

    Tonneau Cover - Help me choose!

    I need a new one. The one with the Velcro sides I have currently was flapping like superman's cape behind the truck coming across Nebraska last year. What do you have? What do you wish you had bought? Assume that price does not matter. I am leaning towards one of these but I dont like how...

    Prop Joe Diffie up beside the juke box...

    Sad to hear he passed away. I always loved his music. Strangely enough, I was humming one of his songs this past weekend while shooting fish. Enjoy.

    OHV Trails - Colorado National Forest Land

    So I have been doing some google earth snooping. I have found a couple areas I want to try but I keep finding these "random trails" zooming all over the national forest. It looks like 4 wheeler trails but upon closer inspection they are NOT legal trails. My fear is that I show up and a bunch of...

    Last years deer meat? No problem...

    Had some deer steaks left over from last season. They go through the jerky slicer perfectly. :) If it was up to me I think I would turn every animal into jerky. I love the stuff. Also, I have had these wally world dehydrators for 15 years. They work great and cost next to nothing.
