    Well. I think I blew it, sort of. I did an afternoon treestand hunt on the back side of my property. I went out and put three scent wicks that have been dipped in a bottle of ConQuest Ever Calm lure...

    As usual, I spring for a bear permit. I know my chances are very slim but it is better than sitting around the house.

    This year I plan to try something a tad different. I have an old whitetail...
  16. Did everyone get their antlerless permit?

    When I got home today I logged on to the Mass Fish and Hunt site.

    Checked to see if I won a Zone 8 permit.

    Great news. Got one for 2017. Now to get it filled is the tough part.

    I use Blackhorn exclusively in my hunting guns. Since I use the TC Contender platform the powder is perfect for me. You need to have a closed breech or fully supported recess for the 209 primer. As...

    I am not sure if it was a good test but I mowed the overgrown campground lawn with a push mower. No bugs what so ever. I will have to wear it out on a woods excursion in the near future.
