Re: Retirement destination

Western KY was at the top of the list. Then I saw KY has one of the earliest average ages of death. :dontknow:

I was born in raised in the Sandhills of SC, was graduated from USC and spent several years travelling the state for work. I do miss the BBQ.

Re: Loggers

Nope, but this timber company is unusually easy to get along with. It throws me off, how reasonable they are compared to others. I do remember one club where the pres. was aggressive about making sure WHO among the various cutting crews the timber company sent. The ones that did that were stopped fr...

Re: Climbing Stands

Back when I did that I had one of the original Loggy Bayou. If I did again, I'd want another. I think Lone Wolf is the lightweight choice these days, but I never used one.

Re: Vent rib red dot option

Before Aimpoint built the S1, they sold the Aimtech Rib Rider to mount their dots. I suspect if you bedded one to the vent rib so there's no room for movement, it'd stay or break.

Re: H&R Model 1871 pump shotgun

We got one because the girl all of a sudden decided she wanted both a shotgun and a deer rifle for Christmas, nothing else on her list. That one fit the budget. They are solidly built with weight enough to soak up the recoil.

Re: Coffee..

When camping we use an old percolator pot with Folger's Breakfast Blend or donut shop style knockoff.

For my afternoon nap avoider I like Cafe Bustelo for espresso shots or cafe con leche

Re: Yildiz sight plane

Yep, I got $5/day limbing and loading firewood. .410 shells were more than $5.

A correctly fitted gun and quality shells cost less in the long run, because you miss less.

Re: Yildiz sight plane

Story: The spouse and I went to get a Yildiz compact 20ga semi for the eldest daughter. I was set to buy it. My wife wanted to look it over after I inspected the gun. She threw it up to check fit in case she wanted one, too. I had her point to my eye with her eyes closed and then open them. First wa...

Re: Yildiz sight plane

You're talking about "toe." Yildiz does that on some guns, including some semi-autos. It fits some people like a glove. If yours fit you, while the barrels would be canted if you tried to hold the stock vertically, if you held it naturally the barrels would be level. This is great for wingshooting, ...

Re: Anti-hunter on the dove field

Show off. (Thanks.) Not a joke and not the only one. Both were on the same flight line. For some reason those fellas left the shoot a little earlier than most. Maybe it was because the birds weren't flying over them even though they should have been on a good line. :roll: I don't think they could se...

I mean, that's the only way I can explain it. That thing shining in the sun was flaring birds before they even got on the field. Never seen anything like it!

Re: Opening day Alabama doves

Nice! After yesterday, I'm looking for a sub-gauge dove club for next year. I used to use a skeet choke and 20 gauge or improved with a 12 at most. Now...I shouldn't have to switch to full choke to reach them on the second shoot of the season. Or shoot them again on the way down just to make sure no...
