LOL.Only me and my Sis are hanging in.

I was looking online at a scope today and prices.I callled Europtics and their price was the same as their online.Sport Optics dropped their price $200 on the phone.Optics Planet was $330 lower on the phone vs their website.I ordered from them.Lesson learned always call and get prices vs website prices.

Thanks to all for their service!!!

B-N-law sent me this pict of his stand he just got up today.Err notice the somewhat square cut out in the plywood side wall.He tore down the boys old tree house and stacked the lumber under the back of the carport where we clean deer last year.Plywood was up against wood post of the carport and all the other lumber stacked against it.Time to winch up the first deer for cleaning this year and we couldn't turn the winch handle because of the plywood.Told my nephew (his son) to push it and I would pull it.Nothing moved.Seems he had screwed it into the post.My nephew goes to his truck and comes back with a chainsaw and looks at me.I give the thumbs up.Problem solved for us. ;D First purpose built deer stand we have had on the place with rafters and shingles.Dont ask me why it is open all the way around for wind and rain to come in and no cover.I ain't going to say a thing to him about that.Think he will figure it out next weekend though.

Twist rate of the Weatherby factory barrels would indicate it probably wouldn't shoot well. But?

My neighbor,the hog hunter, shot this one today on his family land about 40 miles from me.19.5 spread

I cut up 4 deer hams for jerky last week.Time to thaw the pieces out and start cooking this weekend.Going to use 3 dehydrators instead of the smoke house this time.Lots less work.This is the recipe we have worked up over the years for 1 lb of deer meat.
Garlic powder -.9 tsp
Onion powder - .8 tsp
Black pepper -.45 tsp
Red pepper    -.55 tsp
Sea salt         -.50 tbsp
Soy Sauce.     -2.0 ounces
Worchestire    -2.0 ounces
Liquid Smoke. -1.0 tbsp
Marinate over nite.
Any favorite recipes I should also try or added ingredients?

We have been using ratchet jawed loppers for cutting bones when cleaning game.But last week we rolled the blade while trimming roads and cleaning deer.Had to revert to the old hatchet.I think this  Milwaukee 18 volt Hackzall will fill the bill for both chores.Actually buying a used one off EBay.Already have batteries and charger for other Milwaukee tools so not out that cost.This one allows one hand use if by yourself unlike other reciprocating saws.Dont hunt where we have to pack out our game so weight isn't a factor.What do y'all use?

When you say character you know the rack ain't too big. LOL Saw him on game camera 2 days ago. He didn't show yesterday but did  tonite at 6:20. These straps on the golf cart work great. ;D Without the game cam I wouldn't have been hunting here .Sitting in my trusty folding chair that was sunk in the ground to the cross pieces and using a Primos tripod trigger stick for a rest.50 cal CVA Wolf,120 grains Blackhorn 209,Hornady sabots 250 grain.A doe this morning so processing to do tomorrow morning.Gonna sleep in before I start.

Somebody has to kill this afternoon with the ML.lol.We used the last 2 packs of backstrap today.Nothing yesterday.Rained late yesterday and most of nite and this morning.We didn't fight the rain and storms this morning and it seems to have quit now.Yeah we used our fine china to eat on.Last pict is for supper.

Trying out the ML before next weekends hunt.First pict is 100 yds and second is where it hits at 50yds, both Picts needed to be rotated 90 degrees.The Wolf with the no tools needed breech plug is great and using the Blackhorn 209 powder it cleans up easily with Hoppes No 9.The Hornady SST sabots are the easiest I have ever loaded.

My nephew texted he was going down Friday nite to get the deer camp going to hunt this weekend for opening ML hunt next weekend.Great I told him.I get this text picture about 11 am today.Now my idea of getting deer camp ready is making sure feeders are full,working,shooting lanes shredded,Cameras out,stands ready,trimmed around, etc..Oh well, we will be watching football if nothing else with the new TV.lol.Hopefully he gets around to the important stuff.

Looks like Nate has New Orleans in its sights.It floods enough there without a tropical storm or hurricane. Looks to be tracking on up into Mississippi and Alabama.Stay safe all.
