    Awesome pictures. On a similar topic, the national dock dog championships was televised yesterday (From April). A dog named "Bo Nose" flew 27' which is 2' further than any dog has gone before and thus, the new world record. Here's the story: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/local/cape-coral/2017/04/11/dock-diving-bo-nose-cape-coral-breaks-world-record/100281788/

    If a cop is yelling "Don't reach for it" at me, I'm not going to reach for ANYTHING even if I know what he's talking about. Here's a little more for you. https://bluelivesmatter.blue/philando-castile-shooting-video/

    If you read the court description of the event, the driver had no license, it was revoked so he wasn't reaching for something he didn't have. He was reaching and making the cop nervous for his life. He had already given the cop his vehicle paperwork so no other reaching was required ESPECIALLY after being told numerous times to STOP REACHING. Sad that someone had to die, sad that the cop now has to live with the grief and sad that the guy's family had to bury him. Listen to direction, don't give a cop any reason to fear for his/her life and you'll be just fine.

    Swampy, I had been military for only 3 uniform changes and although there was much research and development of the chosen camo patterns based on current mission, the change was really a political statement. You see, there is a legacy issue at stake when a new CMSAF (Chief Master Sargent of the Air Force) sits in the seat and this is generally when you see changes like this come (Air Force wise anyway). The other branches have their own legacy to ensure and we can't all be the same anymore. The Navy has to have their new blueberry camo that is on it's way out, the army has digicam for certain troops, marines have MARPAT....it's all based on someone at the top of the chain of command who wants something that sets them apart. They did learn that going door to door wearing jungle camo wasn't effective so they went to digital camo to match the surroundings but other than that, it's all someone making a legacy for themselves.

    Swampy, we really only have 3 crops here, Corn, Beans and Potatoes (sweet and standard brown variety). Most farmers rotate between corn and beans yearly and very few even mess with potatoes. Beans are productive almost full season, there are 2 types of beans as well. Most farmers here use 120(?) day beans but there are also 90 day beans. Both are productive for deer until they are totally yellow which is right about harvest time. Corn is difficult to hunt as we all know because you really can't see deer in 900acres of corn until they aren't in it. Sweet potatoes are like some kind of candy for them, you'd never think you'd see deer in a big dirt field BUT those sweet taters make deer go nuts, they will dig em up and put their faces in the dirt to get to em without a care in the world about what's around. If you hunt large tracts, I've found the best place to locate deer is the area between crops, like where a corn field butts against a bean field. Not necessarily the best place to hunt them but you'll see tons of deer there at dusk. My house property is surrounded by corn this year on all sides so I'll be looking for some offerings to feed other than corn, try to draw them to me. Honsetly, I don't hunt my own property much unless a huge buck is consistently on camera. Too many other good farms that I have access to.

    My bro in law works for Oregon as a Sheriff, he's retired from California where he was a Sheriff as well but worked allot with drug interdiction. He now occasionally flies in the helo to search for marijuana grows. One flight a few years ago, he and his partner were strapped in, hanging out the door searching for hidden grows and his partner gets hit with something, he thought it was a bug or whatever. Not until they landed and were in the locker room did his partner realize that he was shot with a small caliber round that passed through his leg. His entire leg of the flight suit was bloody. My BIL was sitting directly next to the guy and didn't realize he was almost killed by something neither of them even saw coming. Crazy to think someone would want to draw attention to themselves by shooting at an aircraft looking for something they were doing. On a side note, those drug interdiction units don't even care about anything under 50 acres according to him......I guess it has to be worth their while.

    Ticks and chiggers, umm, naaaa. If while driving by a property I hunt, there is a special buck, I might take a few nights to see his activity but other than that, I use trail cams. Summer routs are identical every day and since our season opens Sept 1st, I'll have about 3 weeks or so before the deer change their repetition to a more Fall like, unpredictable course. That continues until late October.

    So....just a few things to mention on this topic: #1. DP has the unit most motorcycle enthusiasts use for emergency use, it's easy to use, takes up very little space and is efficient. #B. I'm struggling with doing any research for Swampy's big stay in the remote wilderness due to the fact that he's researched every gizmo from toilet paper to solar showers and had purchased exactly zero of these gizmos for the event. #5. The solar panel I bought for $14.99 on Amazon that I hooked up to my feeder battery has charged that battery for 2.5 years sufficiently to spin the feeder 2x a day for 10 seconds amid the raccoon chewings and duct tape repairs.

    Ahhhh, camo! My favorite subject..... Camo isn't made for hunters anymore just like pickup trucks aren't made for farmers anymore. Camo is made for magazine cover and for idiots to argue over. "the camo I paid $729 for is so good, the deer never see me..." What a bunch of crapola. Buy a damn green plaid shirt and some brown farmer jeans and go hunt. Find a place where you aren't skylit and hunt the wind, deer don't care what you wear. Besides scent products, camo is the biggest ripoff in the hunting industry and people fall for it every damn year. there, I feel better now.
