    Random thought / observation: (in regards to ground blinds with shoot through windows) This past fall, my youngest son and I were hunting some river bottom lands looking to fill his doe tag. This was during rifle season; he was shooting a .308 Win, and we were sitting in my Ameristep Brickhouse blind. He had several does come within range over the course of the afternoon, but each time, they were not in a good position or near the little shooting port holes. After several hours of this, with our frustration growing...he asks me if they come back, or another doe shows up, can he shoot through the screen window... Well, I think it over a minute and I say to him, "Well, they're made to shoot through with bow, but let me kick that around a little more...just see what happens first." After another 45 minutes or so, out comes a couple decent does, and they feed / mossy over within range. He is on them with the scope, and asking me, "Can I take the shot? Can I take the shot?" In the heat of the moment, and against my better judgement, I say, "Yea, go ahead." BOOM!!!!! The whole inside of the blind puffed up and instantaneously settled back down as the concussion occurred / expanded the air in there. I thought it felt like the hat on my head shifted a little too. -It was without a doubt the loudest freaking report I have ever heard in my life!!! I look over at him, and he's looking at me with this pained expression on his face, as my ears were screaming and ringing, both of us momentarily deaf it seemed. We laugh about it now, and we learned the hard way for sure...those screen windows; only shoot through them with broad-heads, not rifles! (By the way, it shredded the screen pretty badly too.)

    Looks like the old Friday music thread died, dried up and blew away... what's wrong with you guys, does no one give a damn any more?? So I'll resuscitate a new one. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/27LLPANAgzw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    This definition /description is offered in as least subliminal way as possible...so by way of the Force - you dirty joke fiends pass on unmolested. Resting: The rationale behind it as it was described to me: It allows the proteins in the meat time to react with the cure and mixture so that the finished product has good texture. Once you start smoking the sausage and bringing the heat up (unless you're just cold smoking...but I don't know of too many people cold smoking summer sausage, and then heating after - that just seems like a lot of extra work to me) the protein extraction stops as the heat rises. So based on that I was taught to mix, stuff, then let the sausages rest for 24 hours, then allow to warm to room temp, and then smoke.
