    They can't/won't do that today because of the 30% of the population that knows what a magazine is, 90% never read a newspaper. So it's a vicious cycle ...

    Dibs on Realtree for first corporate hunting group to bring out a camo drone for scouting .... If they haven't already. "What's that up in the sky, Vern?" "Can't tell, kid... It's camouflaged ... Prolly just a blob."

    Back in the day when outdoor magazines were worth a flip, they would have had a sidebar to this story, explaining how to hunt turkeys at night by walking west through the woods with a shotgun and a rolled-up newspaper ... Last weekend I said "Goodbye To All That" when I read about a guy who looks for turkeys in nearby fields with a drone. I guess it's too much trouble to mosey over there and take a peek.

    I was going for the contrast between the very '70s light touch and the deadly serious ballad when it comes to girls who make an impression on you, LOL ... I think the bagpipe + Amazing Grace is a relatively new thing, but they do seem to be made for each other.

    Swamp Fox replied to a thread permethrin in Podunk Corner
    So the obvious question is what were you planning to dilute it down to, and the next not-so-obvious question is if you use a water solution, how long will it last? The commercial stuff mostly uses petroleum-based delivery agents and will last through weather and several washings. Maybe try mixing it with peanut oil and sit on a fire-ant hill and send us a report ...

    Swamp Fox replied to a thread permethrin in Podunk Corner
    I know that at least one of the products that people use to mix their own is not recommended for clothing, because "you're not supposed to expose your skin to it." So your polyester bell-bottoms and other disco hunting gear might be okay, but you prolly won't be. Let us know if you grow a third testicle ... Otherwise I don't want to hear about silly little stuff like rashes. Post only important and sensational news here, please. The permethrin sprays we've been using for years on clothes are fine. Direct skin contact with the spray was always a no-no, but as far as I know from reading and personal experience, permethrin from these manufacturer-prepared sprays on your clothes next to the skin is fine (after drying). I've used it a bunch for quite a while, and look how well I turned out.

    I'll go first. I heard this first song again a few days ago (after many years of not hearing it, LOL) and couldn't help but think of the second song, which is an Eric Burdon song but covered by several artists including Sinead O'Connor, who is much loved by everyone, including Bluecat. I'm posting the Rhiannon Giddens cover for a local connection, but check out Sinead when you get a moment. LOL ... Our first ever Fer or Agin' topic: Meetin' wimmen ...

    I call New Game ... "Fer or Agin"... Jump in or participate whenever you want. The idea is to post two contrasting songs and leave a little commentary. Mark your post "Fer or Agin?'" ---or "Fur or Not Fur" if you're from Nebraska --- so we'll no what you're doing and don't think you have just lost your mind. Of course, not marking your post is acceptable, too. We're cheap AND easy around here... See Bluecat about more rules and statistics ...

    If anyone's interested or hasn't been playing along at home and wants to catch up, Google something like "Ocasio Cortez fails economics" to get an eye-opener of the stupidity on one side of the equation, anyway. I think googling "maxine waters fails" might crash the network, so try to avoid that ...

    I guess when you look at it that way ... LOL I wonder how CE is doing this week shooting crappie with his bow? He should consider submitting some articles to someone about it. Could be the next big thing. He could ride that hobby horse 'til he drops, like Dick Idol with patterning one specific big buck and Charles Alsheimer and the moon and Brad Herndon with inside corners. Those guys got boo-coo articles and even whole books out of those concepts. They cranked out the words like factories for years. Same basic info every time. Speaking of which, Deer and Deer Hunting says they're running a Charlie Alsheimer "tribute column" on the cover of the latest issue, but I couldn't find it flipping through the magazine at the Piggly Wiggly. I wonder what that's all about. One-shot deal? Ongoing homages? Serial reprints? In other news, I just noticed that Dwight Schuh passed away after a long battle with cancer. A great western/adventure bow-hunting writer and editor. I'll miss his stuff. Read the whole thing, and check out the bit about well-intentioned llama-packing trips ...

    The magazines have basically disappeared from the racks, and the ones that remain are paper-thin ghosts of their old selves. Not sure that digital outdoor media is thriving in any way, shape or form, either---written or otherwise. (I'm open to correction here.) What do you think folks of different skill levels but who could be classified as "serious" gravitate to or would like to see more of? Is anyone or any group meeting this need, or even trying to? Spitballing: how-to, gear, adventure, destinations, personal stories, "Suddenly, Joe shot the bear..." narratives, think pieces, humor, essays, poetry ... ? Wut? Exit question for Crookedeye: What are the Drury brothers up to lately?

Would he have been? Should I ask this on an attorney's forum, instead? I'll hang up now and listen to the answers on the air.
