Re: Retirement destination

Western Kentucky is nice country. If LBL suits you I would suggest you look into a house boat. That opens so many huge doors in that country with all the lakes available. There are many lake side homes and such as well. Camping areas. Another similar option is western and central TN. Lots of public ...

Re: Wing Bones.

Yes, what he said. Very good description and easy to do. Cutting the ends off is critical because it lets the marrow and grease get out. I just say it again because its that important. I do boil mine pretty good because the steam and boiling forces more junk out. JMO But some others ways to approach...

Re: I have a awesome girlfriend

She is definitely a KEEPER! X2 on the mora knives and the sharpener! I also have used the mora knives for years and prefer the carbon steel for the edge. But both carbon and ss are great deals. Solid camp, skinning, truck or whatever knives. Another great value is the wahoo killer knives. Basically ...

Re: Eastern "Mountain" turkeys

Back in the days before trap and transfer (pre 80's here in WV) if you wanted to hunt turkeys in my neck of the woods you went to the eastern WV mountains along the border with VA (and over into VA). That area certainly held native birds. I heard that some of those birds were trapped and moved to ot...

Re: Phones

I used an otterbox for years and it was durable and shockproof. But not very waterproof. I now use a Tethys. Not quite as shockproof but way more waterproof. 6-8ft depth. I put the case on the phone and submerged in the sink (this is per manufactor recommendations too). Set something heavy on it and...

Question for the guru’s

I have a turkey hunting buddy who has real serious neck / vertebrae issues. Multiple surgeries, etc. The doctors tell him now that he should put up the guns that the risk is too great. But he is a diehard and turkeys and shooting are just part of who he is. So he has decided to explore the world of ...

2 WV boys I know of are making some solid scratchers at a real reasonable price. Josh Farley and Jeff White. They are around some of the turkey hunting sites I think. You can pm me for contact info if that interest you.

It all depends on the thickness of the barrel that is left where you cut it off. Yep, talk to a good gunsmith.
