Yeah I'll go with my kids but as for me i think im pretty much done with it.

My son is as good a deer hunter as i ever was.
My daughter has a lot to learn but she is a crack shot and don't get nervous. she needs a few more years to learn before she goes out on her own.
I just don't get much out of it no more. It hurts my back sitting for hours at a time and i can't even load one by myself. I can't walk far because of my feet and i can't even hunt some of the places i'd like to get to.
I'd rather just focus on squirrel hunting. If i can get my feet fixed up.

Been looking around all of us are gonna get shafted by the Utility companies.
They are looking into being able to track Covid-19 losses and expenses.
Sounds harmless until you read the fine print.
Part of this tracking is also the ability to Raise your bills to recoup the losses and expenses at their decision no more seeking approval just here is your permanent increase.
So the casinos shutdown movie theaters shutdown now we pay what would have been what they would have paid plus some.
Contact your State PSC if you can.
Too late for Missouri and Kansas as it went through.
Sorry for the politicking here but it will wind up costing us thousands of dollars.
Did your property tax go up? Mine did by almost $300.

We’ll have to get used to our taxes and cost of living going up. Someone has to bail out Uncle Sam. He’ll tax you, he’ll tax me, he’ll tax the man behind the tree!
Yeah i hope the Man behind the tree gets taxed as he robbed me blind this year.
Instead of getting 8lbs i got maybe 2lbs of tree related product.
Next year is barbed wire and electric fencing.
And the worse thing you can fence with Snipped 4mm chicken wire.
That crap hurts worse than any other fencing i have dealt with.
You snip every third or forth row when you put it in areas folks try reaching through.
Grabs ya and acts like a thousand needles.

Watching Gunsmoke.
Did you know they drank real beer?
The whiskey was fake but can you imagine how hammered they got after filming bar scenes.
James Arness was also a Bronze Star and Purple heart award winner.

Morning all, happy Thursday.
Morning Jake and morning all! Got to stay home today due to someone at work testing positive for COVID. Hopefully the building will reopen soon. If I have to stay home again tomorrow, I am going hunting in the morning...............

Morning Jay, working from home myself today. I don't mind really, saves me from a bunch of driving.

Yep--I feel the same Jake. I usually get to drive 80 miles a day into northern VA (otherwise known as West DC) and back. Won't miss that today!

I hear you there. From my house to the office, and back is 104 miles. That doesn't include any driving I may have to make to various jobsites either.

I might go to the LGS range today. I have three rifles that I need to sight in. That all got put on the back burner due to the hunting season. Just about everything is gone ammo wise there--even the hunting stuff. I sure am glad that I reload. Powder has started to come back in and primers are starting to show up again. I don't know if we have turned the corner yet on this ammo/reloading component supply issue. Seems like everyone is in a panic due to the COVID and the election. I think the buying spree will last longer this time as compared to the Obama era shortages.
