My Dad and I have put a lot of work into ensuring our hunting success this year. It really has made a world of difference. We have several soybean plots, some clover plots, and some turnip/clover/alfalfa mix we just planted this past weekend. Thought I would share some of the pictures on the blog. Here you are for your viewing pleasure:

Fellow readers, by now you probably know that I’m an avid hunter and my father and I like to practice some quality deer management on the farm we have in Illinois near Pike County. In the pics you will see some of the bucks I have been getting off of one camera in particular. Let me know what you guys & gals think. They are labeled below.

  • PRMS0169 Is the typical 10 with a sticker he might crab claw out yet and be a typical 12. What do you think he scores?
  • PRMS0307 Is the decent 9 pointer that will be really nice next year if he makes it
  • PRMS0439 Is the typical 10 again you can see where he might crab claw
  • PRMS0883 Is the 14 pointer
  • PRMS0569 Is the 8 pointer that will be really really nice next year or the year after if he makes it
  • PRMS1356 Is a decent 8 will be a nice one in a year or two
  • PRMS1467 Is decent not sure what he will be next year but his G1’s Fork he’s kinda got a basket rack though
  • PRMS0200 Is another pic of the 14 but you can see his left side kinda hes got 7 on the main beam with a G1 that forks and a tine that kind of comes back of his main beam that forks and then he might have crab claws on both side which would make him a 16.

Went out to Milstadt, IL at the Quail Club and did the 3-D Bow shoot this weekend. Talk about a good time for $12 bucks. Total of 40 Targets of various ranges and sizes. You can see my last post for some of the specs of my bow and arrows.

With a 3-D Bow shoot right around the corner, I had to break out “the block” to brush up on my bow skills. It was a tad rainy so I only got to shoot a couple dozen times. I have a Matthews Drenalin 28’’ Draw 70 lb bow with a G5 Outdoors XR Sights with the Rhemostat LED Light. I have a limbsaver stabilizer and a Quality Archery Designs drop away rest. My arrows are Easton Axis 340 Full Metal Jacket Aluminum coated and carbon infused. This bow is lightweight has an awesome letoff is very smooth and very quiet.

Recently I bought a new knife from Cabela’s and thought I would share my personal review. This is a mid size folder for your pocket it is fairly light and has a stainless steel blade. It is spring assisted but I have to say the initial opening phase is rather stiff and takes a strong thumb to get it to go into assisted mode. Once it does, it is almost automatic. Possibly some WD40 will loosen it up a tad. It locks into place and can be disengaged via the silver button. The product can be had around $20 bucks and looks to be made in China. It is sharp out of the box and holds an edge thus far.

Product Specs:
Blade length: 3″.
Overall length: 6.6″.
Closed length: 4″.
Weight: 2.46 oz.

Hey Guys,

I thought I would share with you the way that I stay informed in the industry. Recently I got even more passionate in firearms and tactical gear and had the desire to be involved. Writing your representatives should be the first step in taking action but being informed is also important. Since I don’t mind reading email as long as it isn’t junk what I did was go out and create a Gmail address specifically for firearm and tactical related gear. Gmail addresses are free so might as well have a couple for different uses. You can setup multiple accounts in Thunderbird or Outlook as well just Google it. I actually have a couple today one for professional use, one for everyday, one for my outdoorsy stuff, and one for alerting on my PC stuff. Check your favorite sites most of them have newsletters. I like to have product back in stock notifications sent to this address as well so that I know when that gun I’ve been waiting for has arrived.

Some of the sites I subscribe to are:

Firearms manufacturers websites (Ruger, Remington, Kimber, etc.)

Tactical Gear Websites (5.11 Tactical, Condor, UTG, etc.)

Firearms blogs (Moderno, Truth About Guns, etc.)

Online Firearms Dealers (Buds Guns, Cheaper than Dirt, Aim Surplus, Fr33dm Arms, etc.)

Knife Dealers (Gerber, Cold Steel, Spyderco, Crkt, Spartan, etc.)

Outdoor Shopping Sites (Midway USA, Cabela’s, Bass Pro, Brownells, Sportsmans Warehouse)

Let me know if you have any questions on the technical aspect of how to set this up.
