« on: August 10, 2020, 03:29:21 AM »
Shawndel, Anna and Anna’s friend left for Indy this morning.
Not coming back until Oct. Could everyone pray for us while we are apart?
I would of liked to seen Anna a little more emotional about leaving but she wasn’t.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Funny thing today
« on: August 01, 2020, 03:41:08 PM »
I have kept smelling something in the truck bit couldn’t find it. Went to Walmart for a gas can and thought, “ I better get some Spray”. Well, I found the culprit while in the parking lot.
It was a package of meat in a vacuum sealed bag that had swelled to the size of a youth football and had a pin hole size hole in it from swelling. Not big enough to keep up with the decaying meat in the bag.
A buddy of mine had joked about it and I thought for sure he gave me a “going away gift bag”. He denied it but did get a good laugh of it. I used 2 cans of Frebreeze so far. Still have one can.

I am very proud of her.

My birthday is today and I ordered a handgun, ammo and sight.
Gun is in Indianapolis with Fedex right now which should me here tomorrow.

Handguns / Ordered a Glock 40 MOS
« on: July 13, 2020, 05:13:26 PM »
I ordered one earlier. Also ordered a Vortex Venom 3 MOA sight.
I had a Glock 20SF and kicked myself in the butt for selling it. After the 40 MOS came out I said I would get another 10mm at some point.

I will end my tenure at the Terre Haute plant and take 2 weeks vacation before I start my new position in Sinton, Tx.
We are going out for “breakfast” Monday morning when I get off for my send off.
Worked here long enough to see young men become men, see families grow and see men become old men.
I am truly going to miss the folks I have worked with over the years here.

Archery / Made a trade for the oldest boy
« on: June 10, 2020, 12:07:22 AM »
I traded 3 muzzleloaders for an older PSE x force gx. There is one caveat....I got my Hoyt Faktor 30 back from my oldest boy. The PSE is set at #52 and I could get the draw length to fit him better. He didn’t like the #70(#72 if I remember right). He said it wore him out to quickly.
I told him I have 30 years of muscle memory and I only shoot that weight to shoot heavy arrows with a little more speed.

Sitting by our fire pit and can hear some dogs running coons. They can run them but can’t shoot anything. Anyone think running dogs is lazy hasn’t done it!
They may run through the field. Hopefully they tree one up on my back 40.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / August 3....Texas
« on: June 02, 2020, 05:14:37 PM »
August 3 should be my first day of work in Sinton, Texas.
I still have not found a place to stay.

I was over at my neighbors house and since I will be moving soon I had to see if I get my rifle back. I gave him my tripod stand, I figured it would be to difficult to move anyway.
I have thought about giving it to him. Am I being selfish taking it back? He has been a very nice neighbor and I have hunted with him several times over the years. I will miss him and his family.

I put in for a transfer a time ago for our plant that is being built near Corpus Christi.
I found out this week I will get my transfer and a promotion of 2 grades. It will be rough for me and the family this whole next year so pray for us.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Slaying Starlings
« on: May 13, 2020, 09:29:02 AM »
Last two days I have been trying to take care of some pest flying around. I need to practice more with my shotgun.
With some Winchester 6 shot steel field loads I have been slaying them. I have missed a couple but almost smashed every bird I have shot at.
The Starlings are the only ones I have been shooting at.

  Some of the folks I talk to outside the forum and a few people here know of my old dog Shelby.
  My wife and daughters are on the their way to the vet to have her put to sleep.
  Her poor legs and hips don’t want to carry her anymore. She has had a hard time even getting up to eat and drink. I have been trying to feed her by hand. She still lost a lot of weight.
  My wife wanted me to take care of her a few days ago but I told her no. I told her if the dog was aggressive and mean I wouldn’t have a problem with it but Shelby has been a very nice dog and I don’t think I could do it.
  My daughters are taking this hard. So think of them today. I am saddened but she is a dog and I don’t have the same emotional feeling as if she was a human but I am saddened all the same.
She has been a good dog.

I added 2 pictures on my waterfowl choke thread. Tell me what you guys think.
I have my guess of what shot best but want more opinions so I know my guess is right or not.
