  1. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Here on the farm I keep a couple of trail cameras going on and off all year long. There might be a couple of months here and there where they are not going. The trail cameras get moved around. They might be in the chicken yard for a few weeks, might be in a pine thicket, near a creek...

    With the innovation newer cartridges, is the 30-30 Winchester obsolete? This question arises from comments on a youtube video I made about stockpiling ammo. A John Rambo commented: I respectfully disagree. I have seen first hand time and time again what the 30-30 Winchester does to...

    For years I've butchered my own game animals, even farm animals (mostly pigs and goats!). But I've had this problem, that I've always wondered what other folks do. When you butcher animals, what do you do with the ribs? How about the Fat? The reason for the question, I ask my friends what...

    Season drawing to an end? Have not taken a deer yet? If you play your cards right, there is no reason not to get a deer towards the end of deer season. Here in Texas regular rifle season has passed and we are now in muzzleloader and youth season. Youth season is for anyone age 16 and under to...

    Friday evening my kids and I talked about if we wanted to go hunting Saturday morning and Saturday evening, or just Saturday evening. The agreement was made to go just Saturday evening – in part because we had a birthday party to go to at noon. Saturday morning rolls around, we sleep a...

    I have been wanting to put together an article on hunting for some time now. So on this lazy sunday morning, I decided to throw something together. During the great depression of the 1930s, whitetail deer and wild turkey were almost hunted to extinction in certain areas around the USA. From...

    This morning was just about perfect - not too cold, mild winds and some East Texas Whitetail Deer. In all, I saw 6 deer. About 6:30 am 2 came out, then went back into the woods. Around 7:45 4 came out. Three of them stayed around the feeder while one went back into the woods.

    Is anyone here using a portable ground blind? The ones that look like a pup tent. If so, what brand name and model is it? Do you like it? Hows it working out? There is this spot on a creek bottom I really want to hunt. But I'am gonna have to use my climbing tree stand, or get one of those...

    I am a new to firearms ownership (not use, I was a Tanker in the US Army). I just purchased a Century Arms WASR 10 AK-47 and a Desert Eagle .50AE. What range could I effectively hunt bucks in Michigan? hogs? turkey? Never hunted game before. EVER. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    This was the first day of rifle season here in Texas. Bow (archery) season started the first weekend of October. This morning had a tough of fog, but not too bad. A cold front came through earlier in the week, but the air was already returning off of the Gulf of Mexico. This morning was...

    Some states only let people hunt deer with buckshot - no rifles are allowed. Even with this factored in, about how much buckshot are people stocking up on, and what kind of buckshot do you use? As for myself, I am only stocking about a hundred rounds or 00 buck in 12 gauge. I figure that...

    These were taken last year with a trail camera. Enjoy!!
  15. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    One day during hunting season last year, I went out to the lease to get the memory cards from the trail cameras. As I eased over a hill top I posted a nice size buck next to the feeder. The sun was almost down and I did not have just a few minutes of legal shooting time left. I moved over...
