Anybody ever take one apart? I cut open a longbeard shell a friend left me. The shot buffer is super glue or some type of plastic glue. The glue is apparently frangible (easily broken) to allow the shot to separate.
I actually let them out a week ago and they seem to like it..

I am gonna need to do an addition on the
They have been hitting this one since March.
My son finally got his second bird this morning. It was a great morning we had birds gobbling all around us then after they flew off the roost the gobbling hushed.
Been a tough year since the birds aren’t using my spot much this year. My buddy was nice enough to let me go over on him which is next to me and hunt this morning.
Just saw two right off the side of the road on my commute this afternoon. They were miles from one another so obviously different mommas. Probably just born today or last day or two. Keep an eye out for the little fellers!
I am looking for recommendations on a new pair of rubber boots. I am tired of buying a new pair every other year and want to go upscale. My last pair of Mucks leaked in a couple of months and the soles came off.

In particular I was wondering if anyone has had experience with Gumleaf or Le Chameau boots. I was looking at the Gumleaf Viking model and the Vierzonord XL in the Le Chameau. Thanks for your help.
I hope you will indulge me here as I quite literally walk down memory lane. When I was little, dad would take me out and walk in the woods, pointing out various plants as we hunted the ultimate prize: Mushrooms! Now, though he is pretty spry at 80 with two metal hips, he fears getting out by himself both for his own sake and especially mom's, as he is afraid she might have trouble of some kind while he is out. I try to get him out when I can. You should have seen his face as he took in the sights, sounds and smells. I wish I lived closer!
Has or does any of you use theses on your dogs? I was thinking of using them, IF THEY WORK. I can't see spending $60.00 each for 3 of them if they don't.
Their early summer runs. One spotted and videoed not far from me a couple days ago. This is in Muhlenberg county near Lake Malone. Gal has video of it running away thru a yard into some woods.
stories and pics to come.
I just finished up planting 200 trees I ordered last fall from the State. When I placed the order I requested delivery in March. Well March came and went without a delivery. A few phone calls later they showed up on April 9th.
Yesterday afternoon, we walked by a hollow log that I pushed up with my tractor a couple of years ago. I instantly heard noises when I walked by the opening. Shined a flashlight up inside and found these little rascals and their mother. Ended up being 4 young.
They are keeping Daddy busy in the turkey woods,,, But I wouldn't have it any other way. I love this stuff!
If I get on your nerves with the wild plants let me know. I wanted to share a comparison of two of my favorites. I wish this time of year lasted longer!

Just pulled trail camera cards and had this pic, big house cat?

I’ve seen them in a tree before but not that high. Looked out window and saw him. Guess dog ran him up.
Do you have this plant where you roam? I have heard that it can be "uncommon" but where I am ( extreme southern Indiana ) it is very common.

I also wanted to throw out there that this seems to be a very nice group of folks we have here at Kentucky Hunting. It's a nice place to hang out and I thank y'all for that.

Not every place online is like this.

I’m sick an tired of it!!! I have a hunting lease and every year they shoot the signs. I just recently put up new signs last week and they have already tore them down! What’s a man to do? This is happening every year.
My sons first bird. He killed it using his Mossberg .410 with 3” Federal Premium TSS #9’s. The bird was 37 yards when he shot it.
Finally on the board. We pushed it to the last evening of the youth weekend and finally got a bird that was willing to play the game.
The haybale blind does it again and my daughter just filled her last tag. YeeeeeeHawwwwww.
If they put a dollar bounty on every python killed in FL, there wouldn't be any left. They'd rather funnel millions of dollars to their chemical and drug pals for their ineffective 'birth control' instead.


This is the biggest female python ever captured in the Everglades' Big Cypress, researchers say

By Howard Cohen, The Miami Herald
1 day ago

[​IMG]© Provided by Local News RSS EN-US A team of four researchers stood apart from one another, arms outstretched, clutching a giant python, and it takes a wide-angle lens just to capture the length of the beast they found in Big Cypress National Preserve in Florida’s Everglades.

The group posted the image to the Big Cypress Facebook page Friday and are calling the catch a record.

The female python was over 17 feet long, weighed 140 pounds, and contained 73 developing eggs. That would make her longer, end-to-end, than a one-story building or a five-meter diving platform.

“She is the largest python ever removed from Big Cypress National Preserve — and she was caught because of research and a new approach to finding pythons,” the...
So the kids found a rabbit nest in the yard. I strapped a bushnell trailcam to a tobacco stick in hopes of getting a few videos. It worked out pretty good!

I like this guy’s channel. He goes into farm store permethrin spray doseages in detail here and discusses petroleum and water based products.

Be ready for the ticks are upon us and waiting...


This Is The Army's New Submachine Gun

The American subsidiary of Swiss gunmaker B&T has won a multi-million-dollar contract to supply the U.S. Army with a variant of its 9mm APC9 submachine gun. For almost a year, the service has been evaluating a number of proposed weapons as part of an effort to give personal security details added firepower.

The Army quietly announced that it had awarded B&T USA the deal, worth more than $2.5 million, on the U.S. government’s main contracting website FedBizOpps on Mar. 29, 2019, but did not specify which weapon specifically it was buying. A trusted source familiar with the contract confirmed the gun in question was a version of the APC9 PRO series, but could not say which model specifically. The Army now expects to purchase at least 350 of what it officially calls the Sub Compact Weapon, or SCW, with additional options to buy up to 1,000 of the guns in total. The order also includes unspecified accessories, spare parts, and services.

The Army initially kicked off the SCW competition in May 2018, before canceling the project and quickly rebooting it in a revised form two months later. Along with B&T USA, its Swiss-headquartered parent company had also entered the SCW competition itself...
Had a great morning hunting at the NWTF Wheelin' Sportsman Hunt in Greene Co on Sat. Patrick Paysinger and the Volunteer Longbeard Chapter are an outstanding group of Sportsman.
The latest addition to my snake collection. Found this one on arms list a few days ago, was all scratched up and looked like it had never been cleaned since 1992. I found the
Grips on Ebay. I spent the better part of 4 days polishing with 5000 grit and Mothers Mag polish.
I put us together a haybale blind for youth season and it turned out good. Hopefully bust us a limbhanger out of it saturday morning.
Mom once helped two adults start campfire. They had been holding matches to the ends of full sized logs in their attempt! I determined to give my kids a better start. What do y'all teach your kids in the woods?

Hey was looking for some tips for non screw in steps for very large diameter trees. I’m using ratchet straps with muddy stagger steps but getting very difficult to get around tree as I get higher. Any tips would be appreciated. Btw I don’t have help. Just me
Supreme Court says man can use his hovercraft to hunt moose

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The National Park Service improperly banned an Alaska moose hunter from using a hovercraft on a river through a national preserve, the US Supreme Court ruled Tuesday in a unanimous decision.

The court limited the National Park Service’s authority to enforce laws and regulations on state-owned rivers in Alaska. Justices rejected the agency’s argument that the river was “public land” for regulatory authority and that the agency’s water rights interest gave it rule-making authority.

The outcome was a victory for moose hunter John Sturgeon of Anchorage, who had sued and lost in lower court rulings.

“We reverse the decision below and wish Sturgeon good hunting,” Justice Elena Kagan said in reading a summary of the decision.

Sturgeon called it “a huge win for Alaska.”

“What it basically said is that the federal government doesn’t get the manage in-holdings including navigable waters in any of the conservation units in Alaska and that’s huge,” he told The Associated Press.

Justices cited the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act that in 1980 set aside 162,500 square miles of land for preservation purposes. The law created 10 new national parks, preserves and monuments but said agency rules would not apply on state or private land within the conservation units that are not federally owned.

Sturgeon for 40 years hunted moose along the Nation River, a waterway within the Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve in northeast Alaska. In 2007, he was using a...
Suitcased 3 big ones today
Via FB KY Afield....
Got my first deer this past fall, and got the mount back a couple weeks ago. Notre Dame Fighting Irish Football fan, so got the mount dipped in Fighting Irish colors.
We got the blind up in a spot we've killed numerous turkey over the years. It's on a flat under the ridge that runs out onto a big clean point; it's a natural strutting place I guess.
Missed out years ago on a Stevens 555 O/U 410 gauge at a K-Mart where the wife was HR manager.
I have to admit it's my one vice, I like coffee, there I said it..
Do you think a .22 would be enough to drop a, let's say, pitbull sized animal? Asking for a friend.
Does anyone know what the current laws are in Ky to be able to raffle of a shotgun , as far as the exchange to the winner ?
So I recently learned that GroundHogs are considered a year long game species here in Kentucky. That being said, I have determined that before I move I’d like to get one and eat it.
Mason wanted to go to the barn after school this evening and do some pest control. He was successful. And believe it or not...he likes eatin the dang things.
Well long story short it took me and my wife 19 years but we finally were able to achieve a dream. We bought a small 40acre farm (guess I should say land) up here in nky. Right now it will be used for hunting/recreational but plan on building in 3 years. I am going to put a barn on it this summer and was wanting to get some info on pole barns
Wanted to start a thread on dry land fish this year. I dont think it will be to much longer before we start finding some. Wish we had a little more snow this winter but im over it and ready for spring. Facebook reminded me this morning that i found 84 on this day in 2017. Was march 23 last year when i found the first mess. I plan on going and looking toward the end of next week after some of this milder weather comes through this week and weekend.
If anyone finds any this spring please share pics!
