    Nutterbuster and Scooby-Doo

    Yes, only downside is the opening is smaller so the oil drains out slower. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Illegal Ladder Stands on Public Land

    Last year I resorted to putting a trail camera out to catch the four wheelers. One guy pulled in and parked his 200 yards away from me during gun season. I took his picture and his registration off his four wheeler and sent it to the game warden. I also sent him the trail camera pictures of the...

    The Rompola Buck

    The story has 2 possibilities: 1. He got fed up with monetized big buck craziness and the irrational treatment he got and simply walked away with his record deer to keep for himself only and to leave everyone questioning his deer and the entire antler for money industry. 2. He was completely...

    Why don't yall 2TC?

    I watched the videos, made my gear, tried it out on a tree behind my house. Thought it was going to be my new go to. First time out hunting with the method, I realized the trees in my area aren't the best for it. The best tree for my position wasn't the best for climbing. It leaned over one way...

    Post surgery knee (ACL) replacement picture

    I liked to see the guys in there whining about the pain and making little to no progress in their recovery. It helped motivate me to keep at the stretching and taking the pain. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Post surgery knee (ACL) replacement picture

    I'm guessing you had the same as me then - the patellar tendon graft. It connects the knee cap to the tibia. It's 27 mm wide, and they take the middle 9 mm of tendon, I believe. I think the patellar tendon cut hurt worse than the actual ACL repair. Keep at it, it takes time. I think it was 9...

    Stock Trading

    Also, it's a story of the commoner vs wallstreet. The theme is wallstreet is rigged for the pros to win and take the commoners money. The commoners teamed up against the hedge funds and cost them a lot of money. Then it made the news and more and more people started jumping in buying, which...

    Post surgery knee (ACL) replacement picture

    Stick to the pt and rehab regiment and hit the gym when you're allowed to. I had the patellar tendon graft acl reconstruction 11 years ago in June. I was out in the woods that October using a LW hand climber. There was a little discomfort climbing, but not bad. A lot of things hurt then, so it's...

    Stock Trading

    It looks like you're playing pharma penny stocks. Those are gambles on whether or not they will get a drug to pass FDA approval. They release data during phase 1, phase 2, and phase 3 trials that each have to be passed before FDA approval and them being able to sell their drug to make money...

    Staying warm in cold weather... TIPS?

    Only thing I can add is I can't keep from sweating on my walk in. Some of the hills I have to climb make it impossible without spending 2 hours to get to my spot. I've resorted to wearing minimal clothes in and then changing when I get to my spot. I bring a ziploc bag in with baking soda to...

    Am I the jerk?

    I had a guy come through one day looking for a deer. His buddy shot it a week ago in the rain, didn't know where he hit it, and had no blood trail. So this guy comes out a week later to find the deer. He came by 3 times knowing we were there. You get all kinds out there. Sent from my SM-G930V...

    Another first saddle buck

    One more tip if it's not apparent to some - I attached a carabiner to the top of each rope mount. Originally I was just lifting the rope up to hoist the deer with the ropeman, but it got too hard to get him higher up. I added the carabiners up top and ran the rope through them which allowed me...
