    What is your go to hunting height?

    15-25 most of the time. Depends on the situation. If its over 20, its in the climber. With my saddle its usually 15-18. Cumbersome equipment wise to go higher. We had permanent stands in the late 80's and early 90's over 30 feet up. Never had a single deer bust us in those. Those were ridge top...

    Old school “MKM” platform

    It's probably a tree seat. Either at ground level or to add a seat to just a platform stand in a tree. I used a plastic Seat-A-Tree years ago. It's similar to the mkm in how it works.

    Staying home to hunt

    Most of my hunting is less than a hour of total truck and ATV ride time. My favorite hunting is on the mtn behind my house. Just a 10 min atv ride. I do travel out of state some after filling my ky tags.

    Have you ever took a year off from hunting.

    I wouldn't take a year off for my wife. Would have to be something major requiring it before I would ever consider that. 22 years in she knows me not hunting is not a option. If she gets to the point she cant deal with my hunting, I will find somebody that will.

    bear prevention

    If any bear starts up my tree its a dead bear. I dont care what the laws are at that point. Just keep quite if you have to resort to that.

    Every blue gill we put on the line is either a catfish on the line or empty hook when we run it. Bigger the bait, bigger the cats. We have not trotlined in a few years, starting miss it.

    Let's talk Flashlights for blood trailing

    Their headlamps would be good for tracking. Except for a few surefires, I have moved on to other brands with broader 18650 support. I have a G2X LE mounted on a 12 gauge. Also have a old 6 P that I will never part with. Its bored out to take 18650's and has a Malkoff led conversion module in it.

    Let's talk Flashlights for blood trailing

    I use a 500 lumen streamlight 2L-X Pro Tac 18650 light. The clip is two way so you can attach it to your hat bill which is how I use it most of the time. Bright enough but it has a longer 2.5 hour burntime before starting to dim out. I also have in my backpack a larger cerakote camo Fenix PD36R...

    Lever Gun Fan Club

    Iron sights are great close range inside 100. They are difficult when its near end of legal shooting time. Ive killed a couple nice ones you couldn't have shot without a scope. Im working in a win 94 now. It will wear see through mounts and a compact leupold 2.5-8x36. Best of both worlds. Your...

    Lever Gun Fan Club

    Beautiful rifle and buck! You just cant beat a lever gun for handling. Thats a fine marlin you have, especially it being stainless. One im definitely looking to get if the opportunity ever arises.

    Turkey Vest recommendations

    Used a vest for a long time but for the last 7 years Ive used a backpack. Not going back to a vest. The last 3-4 years used a Badlands Recon backpack. It's big enough to hold my gear, decoy, seat, jacket, and enough room to put a 20 + pound gobbler inside. Badlands discontinued it but they...
