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.

Magpul recently announced that it will be diving into the AK realm with its new line of AK mags. I got wind of the news and went out to their website for some information here it is straight from Magpul:

”The Magpul PMAG 30 AK MOE is a 30 round, durable, lightweight, high reliability polymer magazine for 7.62×39 Kalashnikov pattern firearms. This will be the first installment of the Magpul AK magazine line. The AK MOE will be an all-polymer design, utilizing the same advanced materials and manufacturing processes as the rest of the PMAG line to achieve surprising durability. It features a removable floorplate, constant curve geometry, and high-reliability/low-friction follower for the performance you expect from a PMAG. Due to the interface of rifle and magazine in the Kalashnikov platforms, and the leverage that critical points must withstand, we knew we couldn’t leave well-enough alone with the AK MOE before we even started designing. Also currently in development, and arriving on the heels of the AK MOE, is the next release in the PMAG AK lineup, which will be a 7.62×39 magazine with a little more “Bulgarian” in it, featuring solid steel reinforcements at lockup points. MSRP is to be announced.”

I found this review online from the Military Channel and I have to agree with most of what he said. I have one mounted on a Ruger American Rifle Chambered in 30-06 and it is a great scope for the money. I would definitely put it in the same class as a Nikon but I still think that the Luepold has better clarity and high quality glass. You can see some actual pictures of the scope on my firearm and some previous blog posts.

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.

There has been some talk by the TSA of allowing certain size blades on flights again but in the wake of the Boston Bombing that has been placed on hold but I thought I would shed some light on a really nice blade that would fit the bill for such an application. These are made in the USA and are high quality steel. You can read more on their Facebook page. Surprising that Facebook allows such products given their liberal mentaly, I don’t support such business practices. I have a few of their knives and they are great high quality tools. Pictures below as well
