    Heavy bolt build on affordable crossbow

    I finally did it. Wanted to see how practical I could build a bow and bolt combination. Slowly gathering parts and pieces over the last couple of weeks. I had enough to bring it with me this weekend to assemble and dial it in. @OhioWhiteTails and I got to joking with @TinyTucky about getting...

    With truck prices being outrageous, I am looking to downgrade. With that comes rust, lots of rust. A 20 year old truck seems to run fine still, but is rusted to shit. So I will have to do something to stop it from breaking in half. POR 15 comes to mind as I know a few of you use it. @hickslawns...

    My CBD experience

    Hey @Mickey Merrie How about this for a report? I have a legit mental disorder and have tried a bunch of meds over the years to try and control my anger. Even more dangerous than my fits or rage is my manic stages. Those usually end up being very expensive. Sometimes even causing me to...

    Old people drinks

    J was making fun of me for drinking old man pop the other day. My mind just went wondering about it this morning. Oddly enough, all my favorite drinks are owned by the same company. I don't drink pop often but when I do it is usually an RC cola, Vernors, Dr. Pepper or rootbeer. I found it...

    Leftover pork loin

    Seems every time we smoke up a pork loin, we always have leftovers. And let's be honest, leftover pork loin pretty much sucks. We did a brisket and 2 loins Saturday. (Brisket leftovers went to the freezer to be made into chili in the fall) My brain went to spinning about what to do with the...

    Alaska dream hunts

    For those of you interested in moose hunting. I suggest you take the 2 hours to watch this. This is pretty telling of how it is. Only I've never had the luxury of planes and more people. Lol I am only at 1:15, so I'm sure I will have more to add.

    Turkey question

    Anyone ever kick them up like pheasants? I jumped one like a damn pheasant Friday. Shed hunting a big CRP field I walk right up to him and he flushed from 15'! Talk about a RUSH!!! I was reaching for guns I didn't even have on me. After my buddy and I stopped laughing, threw out underwear away...

    2021 SHROOMS!

    Anyone know anything about them? I do not, but I am in the market for a new commuter car. Driving 71 every day I want something that still has some size to it. Planning on getting myself inside a few different options in the coming weeks. But the hybrids keep getting my attention. I just don't...

    Winter feeding

    This will likely take me a while but I've been wanting to get this thread started for a while. This time of year I always turn my attention towards food for wildlife. Winters like this with prolonged cold Temps and snow/ice grab my attention. But what do you do to help them? The internet are...

    Cell phone boosters

    What do you know? Anyone have any experience in this area? I do not as I always enjoyed going over to the high barn and not having reception. Now we have our own barn and I'm thinking about putting a ceiling in. This tends to take cell phone reception with a second layer of metal. Also...

    Cell service

    First TOO outing

    Seems everywhere I look is things that are bad. Kinda tired of it so I want to see some good. Texting with J about some older things it got me thinking about my first outing and it made me smile. My joining here didn't start off so good. I took a little flak that was warranted by what I posted...
