Well, Old Savage posted his dooryard, complete with new unused bicycle, barbecue, cooler...you know, easy California living.....

Griff.....it is "operator error".....whether it manipulation of the gun or the ammo manufactured...now! Get under that bus!

That deuce and a half with the cable holding up the house is extremely funny....but wouldn't fly around here....they condemned a half dozen half mil houses because they were slightly "racked" from the tornado.....they don't look bad to me, other than cosmetic damage. I can still do pretty much what I want to do as there is no home owner's assoc.to deal with....but we police our own around here except when it comes to shooting....cops were here twice in the last two months here...each time telling me "it's cool" as it was a miserable liberal neighbor who don't know the laws.

I was just on the roof in my long underwear....f em if they don't like it. :D . ......my wood pile is more important...it represents freedom and independence from society and the energy companies.

Another view from the ground. I guess you could call it the dooryard....I'm standing in front of the front door.

My junk pile...a 1920's glider I've been meaning to restore...a bucket of wheelweights, old house jacks, roll of barb wire, old fans I need to take to the junkyard, cinder blocks from Maine (cheap up there) and lots of metal stock, pipes, plates, things I use around here.--6

Nice pile of wood, buddy! Now throw a blue tarp over it and it'll be just like here! :D

Yeah. I should have taken a picture of that place with the truck years ago. Doubt it's still there but maybe.......

Glad you got it sorted out.
Yea, guess I shoulda been more specific with that "you guys" appellation! And Gunny's comment was borderline... so that leaves... :P

Yep, got to comparing the bullet I was calling a H&G 68 to the ones outta my mold... these have a slightly longer nose, and it's been truncated to a flat point. I'll have to measure them all, test a few shorter ones to see if they'll feed, then run them all thru my seater...maybe I'll be able to use 'em afterall!

I never said anything about operator headspace- I'm my defense :D .
You are not alone in this OS- I know I have put some ammo together, get to the range and it doesnt feed, or grabbed to wrong box of ammo, forgotten the magazine
Heck one time I even forgot the gun!! Even worse one time I misplaced my K22- looked for it for days until my college roommate walked down into the silage pit and there it sat on a stump where I left it when I ran to answer the phone!!

THE GIANT FUNNEL IN THE SKY HAS HIT AGAIN.......yea baby ...I'm on a serious roll.

So......I go down to Targetmaster to get a Pa hunting license......get the license and started bs'en.....the worker, a great buddy is always throwing good stuff my way.....I tell him that, "I hear Nikon is getting out the scope business". His response, "yea, great scopes for the money...are you looking for something good?" Me, "well, I do have some nice scopes but I've always dreamed of a top of the line Nightforce but have an issue with their cost. ". Him...." well, this is your lucky day...some guy just came in with this...needs money....you can have it for what we have in it." He reaches under the counter and hands me this....a $1,920 scope with a $264 Larue quick detachable mount......you would cry at what I paid for it....PM's only.... :D

Hey.....I put the scope in front of the TV to take a picture.....look at the lettering on the TV!!!!!! I told ya, I'm on a roll!!!---6

Harry...this is 90% locust and 10% maple. The locust is one of the hottest burning wood there is...it's so hot, your not supposed to use it exclusively....should mix it.

Come on down....I pushing 20 cords of wood around here....enough for 4 years and it all won't last that long, except the locust. I'll load ya up good. (Yea, like your gonna come from Montana for wood) Gunny has all the wood he needs where he is....same with Tom.....at Jay's home state they practically give away wood it's so plentiful....Old Savage and Griff don't even need heat.

Anybody else can pay...in fact, some people don't have enough money to buy anything from me...I'd let em freeze to death just for the laughs....---6

Six, I go down to Okla. every winter for a couple of weeks to deer and pig hunt. While I’m there I load up with a cord each of osage orange and white oak. About 3000 miles round trip, so your offer of some wood is not out of question. I would like to see the country side of Pennsylvania, NY, and Maine.

Harry, you have started something now, porchyard! I keep my snowblower, quad and ranger in my shedyard. I'm not sure if I can get the quad and ranger with plow's attached into the shed at the same time? I usually keep the snow blower on my deck for clearing poopyards for the dogs.

Well boys, my YEAR just got made!
This afternoon I planned to go sit a blind down by the stream. Figured the old man would go sit his down in the swamp. Instead he says, "give me hand, I'm going to pull that blind outta there before there is too much snow to get in there". No prob, I says.
I ask where he is gonna sit this afternoon and he says an old ladder stand we have down on a twitch road.
I just KNEW that was gonna be the spot this afternoon.

About 4:05, I crawl out of my blind to start the 3/4 mile uphill walk out and............BOOM! I hear the old man's old 32 Trapper light off. I start hoofing up there cause we are loosing light fast. I get a text......Missed. I keep hoofing cause I'm going to check. Almost up there I cut a fresh track crossing the trail and heading his way. Then he calls........ I hit it, I got blood.
By the time I get down there and catch up to him it's getting late. It looked like it fell but got up. We went a little bit and I heard it get up. Then I saw it and it laid down but was alive. He popped her one in the noggin and we had her. Nice 140lb doe.
I drug her by flashlight down to the trail near where I got mine, walked back out and got the wheeler, and got her out. Got her hangin about 8PM.
My old man is 78. Shot that deer from a treestand with a 16" 94 in 32W.S. Last year I mounted a Turnbull barrel mount for a Burris FF on it for him.
That deer meant more to me than the 216lb buck I shot on the 8th. I hope he is still "getting it done" when he's a hundred.

Yea....some hunts are the most memorable and this is one good year for the Jay family. What's a FF? Is that a forward mounted barrel scope? What was the load he used?

You boys are gonna eat good this winter......happy for you guys. :D ---6

I want to thank all you guys. I'm still pumped for the old man. :D
Man, I got all the gear put away, hit the shower, and just passed out last night.

Harry,
Bra-vo on the cable! Bra-vo! Your fittin right in!

The deer.....
We field dress in the woods, but NOT where we shoot them. We drag em out with the guts in for a couple reasons. First, it doesn't draw coyotes where your hunting area is. Second, you don't get dirt, mud, water in the cavity if you're in a rough area. It's also less to catch on stuff. We gut them where we park the vehicles.
When we get em home, we have a pine tree by the road with a pulley in it. We hoist it up head down, split the chest and pelvis with a meat saw, and take the windpipe out. Then clean out anything not needed and rinse everything with the hose to clean it and help get heat out.
Then we take it down and re-hang it head down in the garage. We like to hang them a few days depending on the weather.

The rifle, sight, load.
I have posted pics of it on the forum before. I built this for my dad as a birthday gift in about 1990. The receiver was made in 1899 and it was factory re-barreled to 32WS sometime in the 30's. It was in my buddies repair rack when I spotted the poor thing. Magazine tube was cut off, parts missing, it was sad. I asked if it belonged to anyone.......it was on!
First we cut it to 16" and put the right band and front sight on it. Then we put a saddle ring on it. It had a little headspace and I wanted to tighten it. This led us to discover the firing pin channel was crooked and we wound up replacing every part in it. I drilled and tapped it and put on a 66 Lyman. The thing turned out great and just has "the look". Great shooter too.
Dad wanted to use it again but the sights are getting tough for him. I ordered one of Doug Turnbull's sight dovetail mounts for a Burris FastFire and mounted it up last year. He does really well with it.
While I've switched to W748 in 30-30, I still use IMR3031 in the 32. It manages the pressure better IMO. Like the 30-30, I use the Hornady 170gr FP. I feed 7 or 8 32's with this load.

If the weather is cool enough ( under 50) and shaded a few days of hang time is great. Before the boys sold the farm we would have bambi's hanging in the barn for weeks or months. The longer they hang the more enzymes start to break down the meat= FORK TENDER! There was a couple times we were butchering in late March. If they froze solid so what. Of course when we finally got to butchering it was days of work, we would make hundreds of pounds of sausage, boy I miss those days!

Wow Gunny! Never hung one that long. It's plenty cold though!

Thanks OS.
It's a neat old carbine. I think it was the first Trapper we built. Done a bunch over the years. When people saw them, they would run out to my buddies shop to have him amputate one of theirs. Kept him busy for quite a while. Every once in a while, I will see an old Ketchum Special on a used rack in a gunshop.

Well Jay......lots of excitement up your way.......I like the way you put the trapper together....even fixed the headspace! Your dad has an open mind...I just CANNOT get used to those things that are supposed to be a modern replacement for scopes. Heck, I even have a hard time getting used to scopes.

Well...got up at 10:15 today...little early......I'm in the bath yard dropping off a Schiff yard....got to get to the wood yard....ahh forget it...that thinking goes to the accomplishments of Gunny.

Happy Thanksgiving chaps!

Today is the 6th annual SHOOT pelosi FESTIVAL at my friends farm. We get a small sporting clays range set up, have a big breakfast, BS to your hearts content. All that is asked is everyone bring some canned food to be donated to the local food pantry.

Slept in, almost 6am when I woke up! Now I have to scramble to get my act together, shower, get the bird in the oven,go shoot and get home before it burns!

Hehehe snow for Thanksgiving IN California!! Gotta love it.

Boy howdy did it blow yesterday!! We had some real sporty targets yesterday. Claybirds are certainly at the mercy of the wind good gust of a tailwind and they just get pushed to the ground, blown sideways, pushed up out of your pattern- it was a hoot!

WTH OS!?
You've destroyed our image of your life out there!
We spend all winter here plowing snow and trying to stay warm. We tell all our friends......"Hey! We know this guy Old Savage, he is sitting back by his barbecue grill right now sipping a cold one and catching rays. He has a parade of bikini clad hotties there with him."
He's like a rock star...... and he talks to us. :D

It's all dashed!.......dashed! :D

So for 3 or 4 days the bikini clad will be shoveling snow? Instead of cold ones it's hot toddy's... Just like here except no bikinis just Filson Tin Cloth ,wool pants and passing a flask.

Huh, not a peep from Six, wonder if he got food poisoning ?

Well, I'll go chase some birds this morning, check my slug gun then come home and put the plow on the ranger, might put the tire chains on since they are also saying ice tomorrow... Don't like ice!

71 degrees and we had some rain earlier this morning in Dallas. Not exactly bikini weather, but there are still going to be some women wearing tshirts and shorts.

Took Claro out yesterday, 2 other guys showed up. They had Remington, aka Remy , a German shorthair so Claro and I got to hunt alone- a rarity! 4 flushes and 5 shots later I had a pair of roosters, pair of hens. The first bird to flush I had gloves on and struggled to get a good first shot, hit it low, second shot was all head. NO MORE glove on right hand!

The snow hasn't started yet...
