Re: Altering POI (not with adjustable sight)

I have never tried it but would filing the barrel be a solution? I have read of some doing it to move POI on double barrels. Not sure how much you have to do it or if it would pull it that much??? Mite another option for you. Probably still need a good smith.

Re: Florida Public Land Tactics and Advice on General Approach?

Quota permits on FL public land is the best option. Its to late to apply now but get on their website and look for 2nd / 3rd chance quota permits. It will be a slim chance for spring 2019 but.... Apply next year for sure. Study the harvest data (its all at FWC online) for the best WMA's in your area...

Re: Mounting a FF3

I mount my reflex sites toward the back out of habit. I can tell you FOR SURE that old eyes like it farther away! LOL Maybe think along the lines of putting it where you can adjust brightness and on off easily without a lot of excess movement.

Re: Trumpet Lanyards

Sent my Christmas letter in and since Santa runs so close to Del's house, I was able to load up nicely!! They are 100% quality and they can make a good trumpet or wingbone better just on looks alone!

But when it was time for fried chicken.....off with their heads in a blink. Just as an aside, she also raised rabbits for eating. She had a system. Bucks had a cage...

Re: smoked brisket

Getting ready to dive into a brisket "samich" as I read. Man, I haven't eaten possum in YEARS. That and groundhog were 2 of my grannies specialties. I was just a little fellow but I remember her putting the possums in a cage and feeding them for a while. She said "to sweeten him up". LOL

smoked brisket

Bought a smoker a while back and have been doing a few things, ribs, pork butt, ect. Tried my first brisket this weekend and it turned out great! Tender and very juicy but not falling apart. It was a very simple rub recipe for beginners. If you don't like hot and spicy you might want to reduce the c...

Shoe goop, plumbers goop. All work well on rubber boots. Rough it up a little with 80 grit sandpaper first. It won't be pretty but it will seal a leak. Good to glue soles back on too.

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 ...
