I’m happy to say that the Mrs took her first deer over the weekend. My family has a rich tradition of pure DIY during deer season. Including butchering everything ourselves. Just curious what everyone prefers to do when hunting near home.
I have taken deer to a butcher, but have done it myself...
I almost want to hedge right between Kevin’s and your position. My take is the faster and more convincingly IDF buries Hamas, the far quicker the Middle East can return to its tumultuous form of normalcy.
I don’t believe a large-scale attack from Hezbollah is in the works, or that time is of...
Thank you for the breakdown. I, like many other firearm owners, get tired of Dem supporters proclaiming they don’t mean to infringe in the Bill of Rights. I am young, but not ignorant. I’m old enough to see the registration of firearms in other countries and then confiscation. It is absolutely...
I know how to answer your question. Spend 10 minutes educating yourself about the current ban in IL.
I truly hope you are correct, but the current situation with limitation to courts being able to hear cases, and the utter lack of Chicago-elected officials Constitutional awareness is evident.
The writing is on the wall for our state. I don’t believe every state in the US will ban firearms. Just the Democrat super-majority states.
Don’t care what anyone says, Democrat politicians love banning firearms.
I’m not saying it will happen on a national level. It has already happen at the state level where I live.
Ban is in effect. Every gun owner in the state to register banned firearms and magazines by January or risk fine/jail time.
Well, I got the job offer I’ve been busting my butt to get. While that is a blessing, we are moving. Just curious if there are any AH members within a not-too-terrible drive from Bloomington, IL. Looking to meet up with some hunters in that area.
Just send me a PM.
I’ve been white-knuckling Tammy either sex archery tag in IL. General firearm opens on Friday. This will be my wife’s first hunt ever. So naturally, she shoots first. I treat firearm and muzzleloader seasons as grocery shopping. Archery is left to catch up with one of my target bucks.
I’m pretty salty. Courts are screwing over IL citizens with the midnight gun ban by our Oompa Loompa of a governor. Not only are basically all semi automatics outlawed, but now I have to register all of those firearms with the state. Gee I wonder what will happen next?
Confiscation. Tag this...
What is your opinion of what the Israeli IDF should do now? I’m curious with your background. So far, I can’t see a clear path without a full on attack against Hamas. My theory is, if Israel shows any complacency or weakness, they will have a much larger problem with neighboring countries.
Nothing wrong with the 375. I would not want to haul one up and down a mountain chasing sheep or goats. I’m not very recoil sensitive, so magnums are just fine to manage. That’s me personally, I know a lot of guys and especially gals that prefer short action cartridges.
I have several shoulder mounts done. I have never had one actually measured. I find it to be a fun conversation to guess and talk about big deer with other hunters.
I know servers hunters that insist on only shooting P&Y bucks. They do it just for the certificate. I’m not very inclined to ever...
I hope everyone in the states are having a good deer season so far. I am striking out on a very nice deer that I have pictured earlier in the year. Let me know how you all are doing. I will leave a little picture of my current target.
While I don’t mind some Skynard, Stones, or CCR. I’m on the younger side of things. So Nickelback, Hinder, Saving Able, and All American Rejects are on my list. Just a different era. All good music is on my playlist, no matter the decade it was made.
Fair enough, there is a very long time before elections. Looking at data, no matter how speculative, does provide interesting conversation. I just don’t believe any poll has a crystal ball to predict the future.
I tend to agree that independent turnout could drop. I just can’t see anyone getting behind Biden at this point unless they are absolutely anti-Trump. That’s why I have stated that I thought Kennedy will hurt Biden more than Trump.
I believe you completely ignored the fact that even main stream Democrats now disapprove of Biden. Who do you think they will vote for? Any Republican or a Kennedy? If Biden doesn’t improve his approval with his base; undoubtedly they will turn to Kennedy (or Newsome when he enters). While Trump...
2016 taught me to never trust polls. If you need evidence just let me know. I wouldn’t consider myself a Trumpster, but I’m definitely a conservative. I don’t fear Kennedy taking Republican votes. He would undoubtedly do more damage to Biden as you look at his approval ratings even among Democrats.
I’m confused why so many people are blaming Israel for Gaza’s civilian casualties in the past week. Israel sent warning via pamphlet text message and bullhorn wherever possible to Gazans. They use a “knock” bomb many times before delivering actual explosives. Hamas and many terror groups promote...
