Does anyone have any experience good or bad with the Burris MTAC 6.5-20x50 scope?  Thanks!

With a heavy and sad heart that I announce to you the passing of our four legged family member Savannah.  She was a faithful companion, a family member and a great hunter.  We will miss dearly, but we know that she is running in the green fields of puppy heaven without any pain and suffering.  Cancer and severe arthritis on her hips & back took a toll on her, and the quality of life was not there any more.  I owed it to her to take care of her even if it broke my heart.  We will miss her dearly, get the birds Savannah, get the birds.

I was looking at Maven optics, and got into their Twitter page, and came across this article about hunting decline in the US.  The article it's a little long, but worth reading.  Based on the number of tree huggers, and their quest to stop hunting, I do foresee this actually happening.  I also believe, that it is our obligation as hunters to teach our sport & values to our next generation. 

Enjoy.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Excellent video
« on: April 10, 2018, 06:32:23 PM »
This is a very good and true video of the success of conservation in South Africa.  SA has more game now then they did 20+ years ago.  The PH in min 3:43 of this video was my PH when I went to SA in 2012.  Great kid, and worked his butt off to get me on some quality trophies.  The Vanguard 300 Weatherby and me did our part in getting those trophies.   ;D

Sorry guys for not including the video.  Let's try this again. Here it is:

This is a well done video, and shows you how we play a huge role in the conservation of wild life.   I do not see the antis agreeing with the facts.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Weatherby Logo

Dear Weatherby; 

I traded my truck, and my old truck had the Weatherby sticker.  Now I have a new truck, and no Weatherby sticker, do you happen to have one stashed somewhere?

Nation, if anyone has one, please let me know if you are whiling to help a brother out.  ;D  I thought I had an extra one, and I flipped my house looking for it, and can't find it.  :'(

This is the one I am looking for, and it came in white:

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / My military career
« on: December 04, 2017, 07:14:14 AM »
Good morning everyone.  It is with a heavy heart that I announce to you the end of a wonderful career in the greatest air force in the world.  Yesterday was my last official day in the in the uniform, and I will officially be retire by 14 Dec.  Throughout my career, I had the privilege and honor to serve with some of the best men and women in the world.  I also lost a couple of friends and great Americans along the way.   I would like express my most sincere thanks to all who served with me, and thanks to all who supported me during all these years.

By the time it's all over, I will have served a total of 34 years, 9 months & 28 days.  All I can say is, where did it go?  If I had to do it all over again, I would sign up without any hesitation.   

I'd like thank our wonderful Nation for opening the doors to my parents, and for giving me the privilege and honor to serve in the best military in the world.  God bless America!

I will continue to work, and I landed a straight civilian job here on base.  I will continue to be involved with military one way or another, but without the uniform.

It's a bitter sweet feeling now that I will not have to wear the uniform.  Go Air Force!!!!!

You guys are like my extended family, so I'd like to share a bit of great news.  My daughter called me this evening to give the great news that she is 7 weeks pregnant.  I'm going to be a grampa again.   I'm super excited :D :D

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Badland sale
« on: September 28, 2017, 02:21:41 PM »
I don't how many of you use Badland's gear.  I am one of those who do, and like their gear very much.  All their gear have life time warranty, regardless of how it was damaged.  They are having a huge sale on some of their stuff, but you have to log in to see them.

Anyone on the forum using them, or something similar, and what are your thoughts on this knife.  It seems like a neat concept, and they seem extremely versatile.  However, I read that the one down side of this knife is that replacing the blades is a bit of a PIA.

Good news guys, my son is finally home safe from his six month deployment.  He is back home to his wife and his now 7 month old baby.  He arrived home this afternoon, after flying for almost 20 hours.  I can't believe that six months have gone by.   Thanks to everyone for your prayers!  Let's not forget those who are still there in harms way.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / I finally did it
« on: June 17, 2017, 09:01:44 AM »
Well gents, I finally did it.  I dropped my military retirement papers, my retirement ceremony will be 4 Nov, with an effective retirement date of 14 Dec 2017 (on my granddaughter's birthday).  It's a bitter sweet feeling, but I am sure it's not going to sink in until the day I am officially out of the USAF.  By the time I retire, I would have served 34 years, 8 months & 28 days.  ;D ;D   It's been a fantastic ride, and if I had to do it again, I would signed in on the dotted line without hesitation.  I am an old dinosaur, and it's a different military now, time for me to fade away with all the old farts of my generation.  LOL!!!!!   8) 8)
