  1. A friend of mine did a Euro mount for me. This is the buck I shot on 11/9. Here he is in the flesh: Bill

    Euro Mount

    Got the mount hung: Not the biggest buck in the woods but he's my wall hanger!! I used this hanger: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074H6WZ6D/ref=sxts_kp_bs_tr_lp_1?pf_rd_p=8778bc68-27e7-403f-8460-de48b6e788fb&pd_rd_wg=FRShv&pf_rd_r=SYW3Q6YFJ5TNJSN0R38A&pd_rd_i=B074H6WZ6D&pd_rd_w=p6gzd&pd_rd_r=15f983b0-da26-4341-8fab-1f75064669c1&ie=UTF8&qid=1544148334&sr=1 The hallow wall anchor they send with it worked great!!

  6. Shot him with my crossbow this morning about 7am on the back of my buddy's 3.5 acre place. It's at the end of a Cul De Sac in a big subdivision. The house are huge. Here's a pic of him: Here he is dead: Bill
  7. Back out hunting at my buddy's 3 1/2 acre place. At the end of a Cul De Sac in a big subdivision. Lot's of deer coming around but only way before I get there. Hopefully during the rut they will come around in the daylight. Going to have to put my electronic feeder back out so I can time the corn distribution. That may get them to show up when the feeder is running. Will also save me a lot of money. The corn is about $7.00 a bag. I will go broke before the season is over at this rate!!

    Subdivision Deer

    We get 6 tags each season. Two bucks and 4 does. This includes archery, muzzle loader, and gun season. Some areas you can’t shoot does with a rifle. So for all three different seasons there is a six deer limit combined. Two bucks and four does. bill

    Subdivision Deer

    Due to severe landscape and garden damage the landowner told me to shoot whatever walks in front of me. I already killed two button bucks and a small doe this month in this spot. Bill
  12. Always love your pics!! Bill

    18650 for externals on s40

    I’ve researched maximum voltages for many of the older Sony cams we use and found no mention of it anywhere. Contacted Sony support and got nowhere, If you want to use the 18650s give them a try in the S40 to see how it goes. If they work in the S600 I see no reason why they wouldn’t work in the S40. The ACLS5B AC power adapater for the S600 and S40 has a DC output voltage of 4.2vdc. Bill
  14. Just got back from setting up my Ameristep Doghouse blind, putting down corn and setting up an LZ10, H55, W100 and S600 at a friends place. This is the back of a sub-division I have been hunting. Killed two there last year. I am always surprised how close the main deer trail is to the back of his house. Can't be over 25 or 30 yards!! Took a look at it today and it is being heavily used. My shooting window looks down this trail. I'll post pics as I get them. Had some big bucks on camera last year but never saw them when hunting. Maybe this year???? Will also be hunting on some Corps of Engineer's land on the river. Have to camp in the boat there. Good Luck everyone!! Bill

    Lighted Nocks?

    Lumenocks or Firenocks?? I'm new to lighted nocks so thought I'd check with you guys. Bill

    Battery Internal Leakage

    Your welcome. I sure have to be a lot smarter as far as managing my stash of NiMh batteries. Bill
  19. I've been doing capacity checks on all my batteries on an annual basis. After testing the IR (internal resistance) I discharge them to the OEM recommended discharge voltage then charge them in a charger that shows how many maH were put into the battery. This has worked very well for me but by accident I discovered I had a few batteries that had lost considerable capacity sitting in the closet for a few months. One or two were completely flat. I only discovered this because my XTAR VC4 chargers show the maH put into the battery and it took a lot longer to charge these cells back up. In the future I will first recharge all the batteries to see how many maH are put into them before I do the capacity test. Found this on this site. Good rule of thumb on when to replace batteries. Quote- NiMH and NiCd belong to rechargeable batteries that have the highest self-discharge; they need recharging before use when placed on a shelf for a few weeks. http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/archive/the_secrets_of_battery_runtime Self-discharge increases with age, cycling and elevated temperature. Discard a battery if the self-discharge reaches 30 percent in 24 hours. Chart for NiMh batteries: The energy loss is asymptotical, meaning that the self-discharge is highest right after charge and then tapers off. Nickel-based batteries lose 10 to 15 percent of their capacity in the first 24 hours after charge, then 10 to 15 percent per month. Figure 7 shows the typical loss of a nickel-based battery while in storage. Self-discharge as a function of time I now have a standard to measure my batteries against. No use installing batteries in a build if they will exhibit unacceptable self discharge while in the field. Bill

    Bad day for slaves

    I only buy Vivitar 2800 flashes now. Have had real good luck. Only had 1 or 2 arriving unworking but the seller had stated that. I bought those for the circuit boards. Over the years I have had to replace a few transistors after much use in the field. I do agree Ebay seems to be more of a crap shoot nowadays. Bill
  21. The Panasonic LZ10 camera is getting to be one of my favorite Homebrews. All taken on a 3 1/2 acre piece of property at the end of a subdivision's Cul De Sac. Bill

    Panasonic LZ10 Pics

    LZ10 Build Vivitar 2800 Slave Flash with one of bigbassman's orginial flash boards. Bigfoot Trailmaster Control Board with Panasonic Programming (15 sec. delay for night pics so the flash will have time to recharge and 3 sec. shutter delay to give camera time to focus) Gary did it for me and it works great. Even with the delays the LZ10 takes blur free pics very quickly. The only way to go. Two C cells for external power The LZ8 and LZ10 fit in the Otterbox 3500 just right with no modifications needed to the box or the camera. http://www.batterystation.com/otter3500.htm Bill
  23. In December 2017 I fully charged and conditioned my stock of PowerEx Imedion 2400mah batteries before I went to Florida. Charged up some today after they have been setting in my closet and all are taking a little less than 560mah before they are full. That's about 560mah depletion just setting in the closet. Be sure to charge all your batteries before installing them in the cameras!! Bill

  25. Thinning out the hogs in our deer woods. My brother-in-law jumped them and they ran head on into me. Have to use shotgun since it is turkey season. Using 3 inch magnum number 2 lead shot. One shot was at about ten feet. Saw about 20 hogs total. Sure tearing up our deer woods. Bill
