    Grandson's 1st Deer

    My oldest grandson, Emory killed his first deer this morning on my middle GA farm with an NEF single shot .308. He's nearly nine and I didn't get one until I was 18, so he's way ahead of me. GA general gun season doesn't begin until tomorrow morning, but this week is our special blackpowder season. In GA a youth under 16 may use any legal deer weapon to take a deer during this week's special season. My son told me that, but had to look it up to be sure about it before I posted this...SelbyLowndes

    Seresto vs Ticks

    Just thought I would mention that there were some counterfeit Seresto collars being sold recently that had claims of ineffectiveness. If you got a "real good deal" on them that sould raise a red flag.

    Wing Works.

    Very dark urine

    Foolish me. I should have asked if there is anything I could do to lessen this muscle loss?
  6. another vote for Q5. I like them. WW makes a good one as well. Just never got a chance to buy one due to short supply. Oh and mine is the San Carlos.

    Time for a New Hunting Vest--Lots of Water Required

    I'm liking my somewhat new Q5 centerfire.

    Nice! Love it when a plan comes together!
  12. I just got a Tenzing BV16 vest. I really like it. Fits more like a backpack, which I like. I can distribute or shift the weight as I go.
  13. My Mother Upland hunting vest is about ready for retirement. I like a lot about that design, and it has served me well. My priorities for my next vest, in addition to the obvious: Even more water storage--some of my hunts are 'dry' and both my dog and I go through lots of water Not too hot for hard hiking, early season western hunts Good suspension/weight distribution, with most of the weight carried on the hips, not shoulders Easy bird loading and ample volume (some game pockets require yoga to load a bird) Enough storage for lunch, an extra layer, etc. I'm OK with water storage being either bottles or reservoir, or a combination of the two. I like the looks of the WingWorks vest, and can wait until they're caught up with orders--I'll get over the sticker shock. Any others I should look at? Thanks, Dave

    Ontario hunting 2019

    Adding to fff's Ontario hunting thread - Wednesday and Thursday were a write-off because of the wind and rain. Today was breezy and overcast. I took Gus out for a short hunt. In an hour and a half on the ground we encountered two grouse and a half dozen woodcock. Some of the woodcock were sitting tight for points, but didn't give great shooting opportunities. Surprisingly, one large grouse did give me an easy shot.

    Jokes anyone?

    2 days is more than awhile 😄😄
  18. Rogue Hunter

    Very dark urine

    I run her 45-60 minutes, twice a day, not as long as when hunting but exercising the muscles . After the hunts she hasn't shown any soreness or sluggish in any way that I have noticed. Keeping an eye on her. Probably won't go hunting again for the next few days...temps and MEA weekend.

    Need some Mojo sent to the UP

    Willow says thank you for the mojo. She is doing better today but is still at the vet’s. Hoping to have her home in a few days.

    Just put a call into one of the wardens I know. I’ll let you when he gets back to me.

    WI SHORTENED GROUSE SEASON SET

    Caleb - with all of your questions, I would reach out to the WI DNR. I have found, you need to do some digging, but the information is available. Then, if you like, bring what you find to the public if that is your agenda. Let me know if you need some help with names, I have worked with most of the grouse biologist.

    The MI DNR dogs: Where are they now?

    Interesting read. I had all the old Tom Huggler VHS videos at cabin. I would be interested if this line of dogs is still active.

    thanks for all the well wishes- got him to the taxidermist and he scores pretty well. 139 gross 132 net.

    Seresto vs Ticks

    Go with Simparica it’s a chewable. Awesome on fleas and ticks but it’s prescription so you have to go through your vet. Then slap the Seresto on top for peace of mind.

    Maine deer seasons have begun...

    Our GA deer season (bow for about a month and this week, black powder) has been going for a few weeks. Tomorrow the gun season commences. Right on time to catch the latest tropical storm out of the Gulf. Rain is predicted to start tonight around nine and go all night and all day tomorrow. That ought to get the mosquitos started up again if it gets back hot. At any rate, I'll likely skip tomorrow and go Sunday. We'll see...Selbylowndes
  26. Looking back at this zombie thread, I'm just realizing that Jay deleted his account. That's unfortunate. So many of the experienced and knowledgable guys have either left or stopped posting much about bird hunting.

    Very dark urine

    If a dog is not in good condition, then runs extra hard for day, some muscle damage will occur resulting in myoglobin in the urine which gives it that reddish brown tint. The muscle inflammation can cause significant soreness the following day or so.
