Not me. Latest raffle was Saturday nite.I bought ten tickets for 10 guns.Some pretty good guns some not.Hell I would be happy to win a Red Ryder after all this time.LOL I don't really mind because the money most times goes to 4H clubs or scholarships for kids as this one did.Anyone luckier than me?

I had been looking at a 450 Busmaster to replace my Ruger No 1 in 45-70.But after due deligence researching I decided to go with the .458 bullet compared to the .452 and more speed reloading with heavier bullets.Bought a CVA Scout Stainless that came with a 22.5 inch barrel,25 overall with the KDF brake it came with.Crisp 2.75 trigger pull.Loaded up a one load of H4895 (not the preferred powder) Some H4198 bought that is supposed to work best but didn't get it in time to reload with 300 grain Combined Technology bullets,325 Hornady Flex Tips, and 300 Hornady XTPs.The 100 yd group pictured is with the 300 CT before darkness got me before I could try the others.Very happy with no load development.Scope is a Nikon 3-9 Inline 300 BDC that should be pretty close to the 45-70 for drop.

Friend brought this by. Whiskey barrel aged. 12.9 percent Alcohol.You better like dark and heavy though.

Came home from shooting today and 2 guys walking around on corner of my property at the road on one side.Turned around in my driveway and went back to see what was going on.Guy was very friendly and says I know you from the restaurant I work at.I did recognize him.I said you are on my property(my hand is in my back pocket on my pistol all the time we are talking) He said we just bought this.Actually a few weeks ago I had seen the same car and 2 guys looking at the real estate sign on the corner that had been run over and took it they were just putting it back up for some land that was for sale down that road.Told them it was my land and maybe I should call the sheriff.Asked for their bill of sale and they said they were waiting for it to come through.Hmmm a big screw up somewhere maybe.Going to call the realtor listed on the sign in the morning to get their story.

My FFL called and said I had a rifle there.My Nightforce 25th Anniversary 10-22 came in.Nightforce was on the ball on this 2 weeks after I sent in my info and my FFL contacted them.Only cost me a $25 transfer fee.
UPS delivered my 30 inch select match 204 barrel.Right at a 4 month wait.

I was looking at a Nikon Inline XR 3-9x40 xtra green with a 300 BDC.Price listed was $194.49.I called and asked what they could do on the price and they dropped it to $180.49.They have done this for me several times.Always ask.

Tenderloins and the thin end of back straps that are small for steak.Marinade in Allegro for 24 hours,salt,pepper and grill over charcoal to medium rare.Melts in your mouth.Been running 2 dehydrators for 6 days.Have 1 run left.More than this made out of ground deer using a jerky gun.Gonna find out which liquor goes best with jerky. ;D

I was always losing camera cards when running the cameras or getting the used ones mixed with the cleared ones when exchanging them to bring back to the house to look at them.I came up with using Primos turkey caller holders that hang around your neck to get to easily.A couple of Picts from cameras last nite.Excuse the reflection off the computer screen when I took the Picts off it.

Picture pretty well tells it all.Ran the CamAm on a short run and then parked under the cover so it wouldn't be covered in frost in the morning.Luckly I was unloading guns and clothes from the truck and saw black smoke billowing out. CanAm fully engulfed and I couldn't get to it for the flames to push it out.Golf cart went too plus major damage to store rooms.Called 911 and started with the water hose to try to keep it down and away from the house until help arrived.Volunter guides came quickly and did a great job.They said lucky it was Christmas because everyone was home and nearby.Oh well be on the deer stand before first light Tomorrow.

Ole Ruger was pretty happy to get his new rug for deer camp so it was not as hard to get up on the slick hardwood floor.

Here are some pictures of 2 hunting buggies we have in camp.One is slow but quiet with a few mods.The other will get you there quick and go almost anywhere 1000 cc.Guess which is mine and which is my nephews?
