Re: Hi Everybody

Welcome. This is a friendly and helpful place. Lived on a farm in Tompkins county for a number of years in the 1980s. Wish I had known something about turkey hunting back then cause there was a ton of them, but still did a lot of deer and upland bird hunting, and fishing in that area as well as the ...

Re: Once in a while you splurge

Probably in the 120s based on the time and color, but I didn't probe it. I sear them in duck fat at what Hank Shaw calls a "jocular sizzle", putting pressure to hold them flat with a spatula, flip them when the skin is done just right, salt the skin side, and give about the same amount of time, mayb...

Turkey Men, Volumes 1 and 2

I've been really enjoying Thomas Pero's two volume set, Turkey Men, from Wild River Press. Mr. Pero interviewed a dozen turkey hunters that have completed the US Super Slam.The US Super Slam isn't in the cards for me, but I've gotten a lot of insights from the interviews into how they approached new...

Re: Mescalero Rez Hunting in New Mexico

I drew to hunt there last year. The woods were exceptionally dry. A shovel and fire extinguisher in every vehicle was mandatory or you weren't allowed to hunt and they didn't tell you that until you checked in. Bird numbers were okay and we had a good time regardless, but nothing like the old days D...

Re: Coffee..

Mostly use an AeroPress for coffee here. Makes a concentrate. Low acid. Dilute with hot water to taste, or not.
Nothing breakable, easy to travel with or take to camp. We get our coffee from a local roaster that
specializes in dark roasts.

Re: NM Dusky grouse

Nice. Love me some Blue Grouse. Not sure why they changed the name to dusky grouse though? They will always be blue grouse to me and they are outstanding table fair. I'm with you on the name change. Based on the DNA, split into two species, but I never liked it. Hunted Blue Grouse for 20 years here...

NM Dusky grouse

Took my lab out for some grouse hunting in northern New Mexico. We didn't find much, but we didn't get skunked, she had a blast, and I got to stretch my lungs out a bit.

EGW scope mounts are all the Slopster uses on his Savage 220 bolt action 20 gauge shotguns. Rock solid stable and no disappointments. Fantastic mounts. :thumbup:
Agreed. Top shelf. Can't imagine their mounts being any better than they are.

Re: Eastern "Mountain" turkeys

He describes them as looking quite different from the restocked birds. From the book description: “... master hunter and woodsman Herb McClure of Cleveland,...

Fly fishing trip to Southern Colorado

One antidote for turkey season withdrawal for me is fly fishing for trout. In early June we went to the upper Rio Grande and tributaries near Creede, Colorado. The severe drought meant that the water levels were much lower than usual for that time of year, but it also meant that the fishing was some...

I wouldn't be surprised if they'll make you whatever LOP you want, but they make the stock in two standard LOP, 13.5" and 12.5". Which one are you using? I’m short.. so sitting down youth stocks are almost perfect. Some are too short, but some are just right Mine is the 13.5, but I could easily see...
