    Swampy, probably 20% or so. The favorite shotgun here is either the Savage 220 slug gun or the H&R ultra slug in 20ga. You'll find one of these in 80-90% of guys hands during shotgun season.

    A friend and member of my deer lease shot a deer of a lifetime last season. Wayne had injured his back and during the spring of 2016, he had back surgery. His therapy and recovery was coming along slowly and by September, he didn't think he'd even be able to hunt. He couldn't walk more than 30 or 40 yards by the season opener and had all but given up on hunting. Slowly, he got his walking stronger and although he couldn't bowhunt, he was focused on getting out during gun season if only for a few hours a day. Our hunting club uses several elevated box blinds. We had one that was located in a new spot, only 60yds from a main highway and Wayne had me clear a path right from the highway to the box with cat eyes marking the path so he could easily find his way in the dark. Wayne had hunted the spot several times in early November seeing several smaller bucks but nothing he wanted to shoot. On the shotgun opener in mid November, Wayne got a quick glimpse of this buck but never had time to get a shot off. His adrenaline was through the roof and he thought he'd never see this buck again. A few days later, the buck came back but this time, he came out into the open and gave Wayne the time to get a well placed shot into him at only 90yds. His shot was well placed and the buck dropped within 40 yards of the shot. A buck in our area that exceeds 150" is a rare sight, one that exceeds 160" is even rarer. This buck scored 167 3/8 gross, 162 1/8" Net. Prior to this buck, Wayne had never shot anything above 120" Here's the stand he shot it out of

    I've had very similar incidents as I'm sure we all have. Scent makes em flip out. Changing of surroundings makes em on edge but not necessarily split immediately. You think they are aware, watch a fox cut your trail. They take about a micro-second before launching into space.

    I guess we'll never KNOW what was going thru his head, was it a strange scent or was it a new mineral block that wasn't there yesterday? He seems more visually fixated than worried about a scent. The things that we'll never no

    The only buck I've ever killed in the heat of September was at a farm I had never hunted and nobody had been there in over a month, 5 bucks came out into the beans in 97deg weather. I just happened to be in the right corner of the field and smacked the only buck with perfect velvet. Pretty rare to see that many together in that kind of heat.

    I mounted the camera on the side of the front fairing, under the side mirror. I am really impressed with the stabilization, you can tell when it is working because the left side of the screen where the bike's fairing is showing will wave. You can imagine how much vibration is going on but the video is very stable. I really like this camera.

    Bluecat, the wife has no intentions of riding her own bike, she's completely content being a passenger. Swampy, These bridges are mostly constructed of wood in their entirety. Here's a blip about the Taftsville Bridge from Wikipedia: Unlike many extant covered bridges which are based upon patented bridge designs, the Taftsville Bridge reflects an earlier "craftsman" bridge-building tradition that was possibly influenced by designs found in Switzerland. While the incorporation of laminated arches in the bridge structure is generally indicative of the well-known Burr arch-truss, which was patented in the United States in 1817, the resemblance is purely superficial. Instead, the unusual design of the Taftsville Bridge is better described as a "modified multiple kingpost truss with semi-independent arches". Taftsville Bridge reaches a total of 189 feet (58 m) over the Ottauquechee River with two spans of 89 feet (27 m) and 100 feet (30 m) from either river bank to a central pier in the river gorge. The bridge measures 20 feet (6.1 m) in width, providing an interior roadway that is 16 feet (4.9 m).

    Luv2 desperately lurks, he wants so badly to come in and just let it all out but he's hurt inside and being hurt amongst a small crowd is frightening to him. Maybe one of you should reach out to Luv2, in his safe zone wherever that is. He's yearning for a friend to just try again, maybe BULLZ-I will come lurk and see this and help him out....
