  1. There's something about sitting in a stand that you took the time and effort in picking that particular spot based on your scouting, knowledge of the area, and your thoughts about why the deer should pass by this spot close enough for a shot. Especially bow hunting. Doesn't always work out but it's awesome watching them come in when it does work.
  2. Neighbor kid i grew up with used to say "I may be dumb but I ain't stupid".
  3. Good point. Seems like really good scrambling QB's dont do so well in the long run. Vick, Kapernick, Kordell Stewart, are a few off the top of my head that didnt last to long. Newton gets beat up weekly and most likely wont have a long career. Marriota probably wont be around long either. I suppose Rothlesburger could be considered an exception.
  4. I wasn't sold on Brady at first. Wanted Bledsoe to get his job back. Told anyone who would listen that anyone can throw 3 to 7 yard passes all the time like Brady did back them. Still think there are other QB's with more athletic qualities but Brady is the GOAT and most likely wouldn't be if not for the coach and system he plays for and in.
  5. Antonio Gates. Good team with rivers and tomlinson but they didnt win anything. Would Bellicheks "system" have made a difference? Probably to some extent. Also I think Tony Gonzalez was a Gronk type TE.

  7. Saw this piebald doe at the checking station i use. I had let one pass a few years ago. The only one I have seen while hunting. This one was taken in Northboro. Says he is going to do a full body mount.
  8. Happened to me too. Lost the whole setup. Was using the gotta-bite flag setup but the line must have wrapped around the reel somewhere. Saw drag marks and tried casting lures in the general area but never hooked it. 30 dollar ugly stick and a 50 dollar shimano reel.
  9. No expert here but I'd guess closer to 140 or more. Good mass, 10 points, fairly long tines, and good side to side symmetry meaning minimal deductions. Awesome trophy. Congrats.
  10. Me too. All I use for fresh and saltwater. I have 2 older baitrunners, a couple older spheros for salt and sedonas and sierras for fresh. Havent had to buy a new reel in years. He bought this reel on my recommendation. I think its more to do with his casting technique than any problem with reel. Its just that he never had bail closing issues before.
  11. My son recently bought this reel. First time out the bail closed on him 4 or 5 times on the cast. Probably casted over 100 times without it closing on him. He was getting frustrated losing gear each time. Never had this problem with any other reels he used in the past. Talked to him last night and he says that in one certain position he doesnt hear a click when he opens the bail and it doesnt take any effort to close it. Is this normal for all reels. Does he just have to pay attention each time he opens the bail to hear the click. I
  12. No lie, fishing off the jetty by the salisbury boat ramp we noticed a guy hanging onto his kayak floating by. My buddy unclipped his hook and cast out to kayaker who proceeded to wrap the 20lb ande around his arm. Was able to slowly pull him in to the shoreline with the kayak in tow. Guy was exhausted and thanked us for helping out. Luckily he had his life vest on and it was an incoming tide. His son had been following him on the shore and said he went over near the jetty further up the beach.
  13. News showed the boat capsized against the jetty right off of the beach, not in the mouth. Crazy to be out there on a day like that.
  14. No luck for us. Didn't fish that hard though. We will be back again in the fall.
  15. My wife enjoys fresh water bass fishing. Never tried it over there. I guess we will have to look into a 3 day non resident freshwater license and give it a try. Hoping we dont have to do to much bushwacking. I hear the ticks are pretty bad.
