    Best Commercial Cam?

    Promos are hit and miss. My 3 each lasted 4-5 years being out Aug thru May. I've heard newer ones are better. I've heard good Browning comments, and I have one Cuddyback blackout that's okay. I got a couple cheap Wildgame cams in the past that spook game with a click. A friend said the Stealth cam also made deer change their path to pass the camera.

    If you haven't named him yet, "bulldozer" would be fitting.

    Arkansas 2014 Before And After

    Here are a couple after.
  7. Since I just logged on again today I thought I'd share how I did last year during my first year living/hunting in Arkansas, the land of little bodied deer.. and humidity. I was fortunate enough to get on a decent 3rd generation family lease in a part of the state known for larger bucks. They said that this buck one was the largest they had harvested on the lease in several years. Just about everyone on the lease had seen pics of him, and they called him the moose.. Its a 10 point (9 and a half really) that scored 135... And I swear to god coming from Kansas and being used to larger bodied deer, I thought it scored 160 when I shot him. The old saying is the big bodied deer in Canada make a big rack look small... well in Arkansas, the little bodied deer make a little rack look big. He weighed 190lbs on the hoof and was aged at 7 1/2 years old. I've had Kansas does that weigh more than that after being field dressed. But I'm not complaining, I was very happy with this deer! A doe I shot earlier in the season was aged at 3.5 years and weighed 120 pounds on the hoof. Here's the before

    Talked To One Of Our Members On Phone

    I've spent the morning catching up a little since I havent been on here for a while... but youre right bat, I didnt realize how much I missed seeing the pictures, the problems, and the updates. I guess I'll have to see if I can get my cameras treetop built me running again so I can start posting homebrew pics again.

    Uv Blocker Laundry Detergent

    I know you're talking about detergent for your current camo clothes, but since I've switched to some form of fleece or another, I dont have that problem as much. I used to use Sport Wash, but I cant say it works 100%. I have been using DDW and Primos Silver lately, whichever is quickliest available when I need it.

    Best Anti-virus To Get

    I just read today that XP is no longer supported, and deemed very unstable to continue using.

    Let's Talk Pistols

    My carry is a Glock 42, on my nightstand is a Glock 19, the gun I pack while hunting is a Ruger GP100 .357. Never thought I'd have to carry to protect against wild game, but you should see the size of the boars I have on camera here in Arkansas! We also have black bears roaming around. Makes walking around in the dark more interesting than it was in Kansas.

    Good To See Folks Are Still Around

    Well, I never could understand how to build my own camera so I was just a lurker looking at the pictures and reading the stories. I still do all three of those things, just not as often; and I just dont post much anymore. Good to see you all, still recognize the names...

    Gun Guys

    Unless you just want something turkey specific, there's nothing wrong with an 870, Benelli super 90, something like that.. it really doesn't matter unless you just cant get them to come in closer than 40 yards. I stalked a flock and shot my fall turkey last year with an 870 using a low brass 7 1/2 quail load wtih modified chocke at 30 yards because it was all I had at the time. Knocked it dead as a door nail. I shot a lot of turkeys over the years with quail or pheasant loads back before the industry started pushing more expensive loads with more pellets, more kick, and more dough.
