    i miss the banter. some got tiring but for the most part it was in good humor.

    i’m not on facebook and not gonna be. old lady signed me up and that same day it was cancelled/deleted/whatever the hell ya call it. she thought she was doing me a favor, but found out it was no favor.

    aw hell, i will still be here.

    beat ‘em up. i can’t find the ducks and have no interest in the geese right now. experience tells me i’ll be burned out by end of dec if i start whacking honkers now.

    have a good opener bro.

    hahaha – ya might be correct counselor. i’ve been getting beaten up real regular and often bad. losing reflex sucks. this was my bad for failing to properly secure the metal. gotta say it happened dam fast.
    no infection yet, but this wound has oozed blood for a week with no stoppage. course, i keep doing things and every couple of days i whack it on something.

    latest projects are rebuilding a hydraulic floor jack, attempting to get the deke sled completed and getting measurements to a blacksmith for a leaf spring for the indian chief leg vise. it’s only a 4″ model, but cool as hell. haven’t made up my mind if i need to make a new base or simply attach to the welding table and brace the leg.

    decisions.

    enjoy the weekend gents.

    du870, appears i ran off all the ducks from the mud hole. no migrators yet, still have some teal & woodies on the bighorn, but i’m trying to get all my projects completed prior to winter. the few scouting trips i’ve made, i found very few birds. chopping corn, pulling beets, combining peas and sorghum and there is nothing flying to the fields – dam.

    too cool to take the boy out.

    nice dude – i be jealous. dam sure piled ‘em up that day. nice boat & trailer set. dekes look good. photo of momma and the pump is nice – blow it up and frame that.
    black dog chasing the greenhead is also worthy.
    thanks for letting me look in bro.

    i knew that – ya dance to your own tune and i can dam sure appreciate that.
    only cheap steel for the sub-gauges is some winchester stuff – not big shot but adequate if necessary. i think 6’s is the biggest cheaper stuff i’ve seen, but it’ll whack greenheads over dekes close. only shot woodies and teal if memory serves me correct with the 410.
    tear ‘em up.

    hahaha – he has been actually doing what a lab should do. casting off both sides and going out/coming back on command. ain’t sure what the little fella was thinking, other than when he lost sight of me the other hunters had a grey extended cab truck as well or maybe he just decided that field had more birds in it. farmer hasn’t cut this field yet and the sorghum is well over my head in most places. still had a good day ’cause i cooked some awesome burgers. and got a couple of miles of good exercise.

    for some reason black dog would not cast off more than about 20′ going left – finally after a lighting bolt he decided he could move over further. got a little frustrated with that behaviour but it got better.

    life is good – for the most part the dogs are hunting well and my shooting has come back to normal. gotta watch the glass changes a little better evidently.

    well jc, this thing is dam accurate – i’d be thinking a .22 for true hunting applications. shoulda quit screwing around years ago and bought one of these.

    i can say with the pointy-headed pellets the .177 does work just fine for the problem i was having.

    good for you and dip on a good day Mark. keep taking them kids hunting buddy.

    opener was just dandy – today just kinda sucked. burned up guy and me yesterday and did what was expected. today was just me and there were no birds. shot 1 blue wing until walking out to get the truck, black dog goes into the barrow pit which is full of water and runs down a green wing. kinda cool to watch, poor little shit never stood a chance. i’ve hunted this mud flat over 10 days in a row previously and always had birds, cannot believe we shot it out in 1 day. but…..
