@  Shetland She... : (01 October 2014 - 06:38 AM) 57° and overcast/drizzle here in srn NH. May get to lower 60s with 60% chance of showers today.
@  Dill : (01 October 2014 - 06:21 AM) I got a bear years ago. Really not impressed with how it ate, pretty much Chilli meat. Actually 3B Chili won a couple competitions, Black Bear, Black Bean and Jim Beam.
@  Vol : (01 October 2014 - 05:41 AM) @jturbo10 70lb. Matthews set @ 65lbs. and I shoot NAP 100 grain Thunderheads.
@  deadmoose : (30 September 2014 - 10:53 PM) @ redneck between my feet on the floor on the 'bota. Swather has more room to the side.
@  urednecku : (30 September 2014 - 10:32 PM) @ deadmoose...yep, but still not much of a place to carry it...unless, like I've been known to do, in the bucket!! (OK, actually, my lunch was in it, & I left it hanging on a fence post in the shade once I got to the field.)
@  jturbo10 : (30 September 2014 - 10:24 PM) Vol: My idea of faith would be a Thompson Centerfire 45-70 hot loaded. How many pounds is your bow and what kind of arrowhead? They eat a lot of bear in Alaska but I never tried it as I like caribou and halibut a lot more. Wonder what bear fajitas would taste like with a growler of beer......yep, beer and bear.
@  Bgriffin856 : (30 September 2014 - 10:04 PM) Got lucky mowing hay last week..... walked past the haybine and noticed oil dripping off it....sure enough the hose going from the drive pump back to the hitch was leaking out oil...hole in it where it was cracked and dry rotted at the clamp that holds it in place. Broke down while parked :ph34r:
@  deadmoose : (30 September 2014 - 10:01 PM) Redneck ever use a softside cooler?
@  urednecku : (30 September 2014 - 09:33 AM) THEN you cold really see some "tractor fail" videos on the 'net!!
@  urednecku : (30 September 2014 - 09:32 AM) I'm with DSL, we nee more like a "cooler holder".
@  DSLinc1017 : (30 September 2014 - 07:49 AM) @hillside hay problem with these cup holders is that they are hard to refill when in the middle of a field😉
@  Shetland She... : (30 September 2014 - 06:59 AM) Juvenile moose in the yard this morning!
@  Shetland She... : (30 September 2014 - 06:22 AM) 54° and overcast here in srn NH. 20% chance of showers/drizzle and not much warmer today.
@  Vol : (30 September 2014 - 04:22 AM) Wow moose....good link....lucky hunter....big bear.
@  deadmoose : (29 September 2014 - 09:58 PM) better link more info:http://www.kare11.com/story/news/local/2014/09/29/hunter-fights-off-525-pound-bear-with-knife/16411473/
@  deadmoose : (29 September 2014 - 09:17 PM) @vol good for you. Didn't work so well for a semi local guy this weekend. http://m.startribune.../277328611.html
@  Vol : (29 September 2014 - 07:41 PM) There is one particular shot that I wait on so as the Bear expires very rapidly....and at close range, often 20 yards or less, it takes alot of faith to be able to hold your ground. The record book bear I took 4 years ago was only 12 yards away when I let the arrow fly.
@  hillside hay : (29 September 2014 - 07:37 PM) Its a small world indeed Linc. We had a great time up there taste testing items for our cup holders :lol:
@  Vol : (29 September 2014 - 07:37 PM) @deadmoose I carry faith....when you hunt bear with archery gear it requires it.
@  FarmerCline : (29 September 2014 - 07:33 PM) I have had bear twice.....the first time it was prepared very good, almost like beef roast but a little bit more greasy but not much. The other time I had it they must have not known how to prepare it as it was hardly edible.
