    I might have missed that, though it rings a faint bell. I will speak to the Rules Committee about possibly awarding an extra 10 points to Mr. Bankston if he will post about a 2017 buck boiled and consumed before the end of the contest. :-)

    I think it would be a hoot if, when Billy wins the deer contest for his team again this year, we all chipped in and bought him a Sue V machine as the award...LOL

    Geez...it took you long enough. :p You'll be singin' from a different hymnal when I post pics and my taste test report, though. Hell, I might even make burnt ends out of it if I have the time.

    Beats me. As far as I know this was the last thing bearing "Chevy" and "SS" that was worth noticing.

    Swamp Fox started a thread Chevy SS in Podunk Corner
    I saw a very hot-looking car the other day and walked all around, but the best I could come up with from the lettering was that it was a Chevy SS. However, it was a two-door coupe and looked nothing like what I've seen on line, which has all been sedans/4-door, and really frumpy-looking. This looked a lot like a Mustang if Ford hadn't ever had any brain farts from the design team, ever. It's a new/newer model, but I can't place it. Help? If I see it again, I guess I better take a picture. http://www.motortrend.com/cars/chevrolet/ss/2017/2017-chevrolet-ss-first-test-review/

    Hey, Wild Bob--- Is there anything you can do with OnX for free? I went to the website and it looks like they want some moolah for every level. But I have a short attention span, so I could have missed something. I'm used to looking at satellite maps online, using a map database like MyTopo, and/or ordering topos from the gubmint, so I'm trying to figure out why I want OnX if they're after me lucky charms just like everyone else.

    Yea, its been around for a while; this will be my 3rd year using it. Not sure exactly when it came out, but that sounds about right. The first year I used it it was pretty good, but at two years ago, if I remember correctly, they really improved it IMO. No limit on that info - it just shows up on the map when you have that base layer turned on (property ownership)... now some times it will take a little time to refresh the ownership info when you are traveling through an area, but it's not a big deal and usually pretty fast. But as I mentioned previously, if you are going to be in an area where you can't access data readily, you'll want to save the map for use off line, and as part of that saved area, it will save the ownership layer as well. Oh and BTW, you can have multiple base layers turned on at once so you actually see ownership, roads, county or state boundaries, hunting units, topo or arial views, etc...

    HuntStand is charging now when you exceed 10 property ownership look-ups. That's relatively new, I think. I never knew about a limit previously. I haven't figured out if that applies to boundary line research as well. Do you know if OnX limits this type of thing? I think OnX has been around longer, too. Seems to me I remember some of the western hunters talking about it 3-5 years ago. I don't recall anything but good stuff said about it.

    Total ratio on bacon grease to oil is probably about 1/4 grease to oil. As far as total amount of that mixture, just enough to make the salad moist, but not juicy with a pool in the bottom of your bowl. (I mean, if it sits a while, you will get a little liquid settling out in the bottom, but again,when it's mixed you don't want it real wet and juicy...not sure if that makes sense; I guess this is where the trial and error and dump and pour come into play!) One other thing in the process that forgot to mention is this; add the oil/grease liquid 1st, mix to hit the consistency your trying for, and THEN add a small amount of vinegar stir, taste, and repeat as necessary to adjust the zip you get from that. I'm sure there are other ways to do it...but that's how we do it. If you're not careful with the vinegar, it's easy to over do it. Good question, as I totally forgot to mention about the process.

    I think I've seen it mostly done with some type of red potato as well. How about a clue on the grease/oil mix? Say you're making enough for three hungry people (that's me, myself and I). Are we talking a quarter cup? More?

    No problem, glad to be of assistance. I really like OnX and the land ownership is where their product really shines IMO. Also, they have a really good way-point system with a myriad of symbols which is useful. I'll also mention that where this whole system really comes in handy is during scouting as well as record keeping because on all those way-points you can attach individual notes that come in really handy in keeping up with information.

    Our recipe is from my Grandmother (she was born in Hamburg and emigrated to America in 1914). She taught it to my mother, and my mother taught it to me and my wife... It's 100% 'feel, taste and experience' so don't even ask me for quantities of ingredients because I couldn't tell you. Part of the reason for that is that my wife kind of took it under her wing and makes it most of the time (and is that how my Grandmother and Mother cooked, but also how my wife likes to cook - no measurements just pour and dump...) Now, I'm a good cook, but I'm the precise measurements cook in our home, not my wife. I think a big part of why this potato salad is so good is based on it's simplicity. So I'll throw the ingredients out here; but you'll have to do trial and error to hit the ratios you prefer. - Potatoes (I grew up eating this salad with different potatoes; my mother was pragmatic and used what ever she could buy that was reasonably priced. My grandmother however (from what I can remember, used these potatoes that she used to grow in her garden and as I remember them - they looked an awful lot like red potatoes. My wife, prefers red potatoes as well, and that is how she makes it now.) - Bacon (And don't be skimpy on this... I mean really come-on!? I've seen recipes that call for 4 to 6 pieces of bacon for a whole bowl of potato salad - That's sacrilegious! We use at least a pound of bacon per a big serving bowl of finished salad. Crisp it, but don't burn...you want it crispy because it will soften after mixed...if you start out with rubbery bacon, it just gets mushy when all mixed.) -Chopped onion (Don't skimp again, you want a lot, but not so much that it over powers the flavor of the finished salad.) -Warm bacon grease and oil (this gets mixed, you don't want all bacon grease, but you want some to flavor the oil.) -Fresh parsley (chopped fine) -Vinegar (We make with either white or apple cider, not sure what my Grandmother used to use, but I suspect it was apple cider type... my wife insists that it taste better with apple cider vinegar.) -Salt and Pepper to taste. And that's it....nothing else. Just make it up nice and warm and serve it warm.
