    Got a barnet I would sell.  I think it is a 450. Used it a couple of years and bought a new PSE this season.

    250 and it comes with bolts and a co ck ing rope.

    Mostly not sure I like the new site.  was slow to load, which seems to have been fixed.  As to the people who post here, about as varied as you can see.

    Have not accessed it with my phone as that seems to be a route of disappointment.

    Father in law used to live near there. Good lake think with crappies. His best technique was to find structure at the thermocline and then set a hook just above that.

    He always got big ones from that lake. Kind of miss going down and fishing with him.

    Good lake to fish though. Be squeaky clean though as the DNR around there rewards tipsters.

    Couple of posts with a wire about 4 feet off the ground should pretty well take care of the problem. People who would turn you in for things they think are unsafe when they are trespassing need to be culled.

    Dunno. using a dog to find a downed deer would be good. I know I have tracked some and never found them. Near as I can figure they just levitated away.

    but using a dog would be a slipper slope as it would not be long before we have unscrupulous hunter using packs to chase them down.

    I doubt it will make it out of committee.

    in reply to: .22 handguns ? #1557188

    I would not get one of the heritage single six’s. the cylinder pawl is not hardened. we had some at a scouts thing and they all galled the pawl assembly something fierce. They were not what I would consider accurate either.

    The transfer law is Federal and it is over all states. If it was state specific you would not need to use an FFL for all sales like Auction Arms or Gun Broker do.

    Handguns require a permit. But you do not need to record it.

    Long guns and Shotguns require nothing.

    If you are selling to some one out of state, any gun, it must go through an FFL

    the only things not covered are Black Powder or Air Rifles, there are no rules covering them.

    Some guys ask for permits on all guns and do bills of sale. but they are not required.

    If you are an FFL then things change and they will know all the rules.

    Genetics coupled with good diet and a relatively stress free environment are the three keys to monsters.

    I don’t think they gain many more points that what is in the rack they will group their 4 full year.

    After year 5 they have the full size for the body and in the following years they will get the full effect of the rack.

    Texas DNR did a multi year study of the growth and other things for whitetale Deer. You can google it and it makes intersting reading.

    some good reading there.

    Not something you can do on a shoe string.

    the building you chose will have to some high dollar ventilation systems added to make it work. Not that the lead is as common as it was you have to handle air to that level of particulate.

    I would head in to CrossRoad in Johnston and ask the owner what all he had to do to start. If you are in Newton that would not be a large ding on his wallet.

    The two in DSM area are both FFL’s as well.

    I would guess the budget to get going would be north of 100k, but that is a guess.

    Pretty slick. Not 800 dollars of slick but pretty slick.

    You must be from out of state. That does make scouting a little rougher.

    How did you come to know of this ground? That along with some of your success should make a good story.

    Just have to watch some of the guys on this forum can be rough on out of state hunters.

    I don’t care as my group ususally has some from Vermont and Colorado along various years.

    Do you plan on bow hunting or gun hunting the ground?

    Bushnell makes some good choices. I have one that will range to 1000 yard so it is handy in a lot of situations. I ususaly use it in stands or blinds and pick out range points so when the crttier shows up I can focus on shooting it.

    You will like what ever you get I am sure.

    Sounds like the guide separated himself from his hand gun. Not what I would have done.

    I am thinking anything you can use in one of those guide holsters, kind of a shoulder thing with a belt around the torso to hold the pistol close.

    I know when we went hiking into the back country with the scouts we had bear spray and I had a 357 snubby in my back pack. I figure at the least I could poke it down the bears throat and cap off a couple

    Scary stuff.

    If you are not carrying and are not helping anyone I would think you would be ok. Any DNR people might weigh in with an opnion?
