  1. No pics....but up all night, bored and felt like posting Deer steak that I'll call a tri-tip (I butchered the deer and had no idea what I was doing) Thursday night, pan seared 3 1/2 minutes per side came out perfect. I figure the steak was about 3 pounds. I hunted 42 years to get my first deer. Licenses, tags, gas, etc etc for 42 years. That had to be a $1000 piece of meat.
  2. OK, I'll bite. How much snow do you actually get up there around Montgomery Creek? The elevation is just a tad over 2,000 feet but I've got no idea where the cabin is at. How far is it from your cabin to where you will be parking your truck? A 4wd aired down works well most of the time. If your making the drive often enough then a worn track helps a lot as well. Is it possible to just plow it or have somebody plow it for you? If it's a fairly short distance I could see a sled dedicated for that task. If that was the case then pretty much any used sled should fit the bill. Heading over hill and over dale solo, probably not such a great idea. I've done quite a bit of snow camping, hunting, and jeeping but seldom do I ever go alone. With that said, there is a lot of gear to safely venture out in the woods in the snow. Life and death happens quick in the cold. Proper clothing, fire, shelter, ham radio, personal location beacon, snowshoes just to name a few.
  3. My source for onion starts, El Rancho in Vacaville, will have them in by November 1st. I did my roto-tilling last night and also set up a raised bed. With the chickens fenced off this year maybe the 300 or so onions stand a chance
  4. I heard on the radio while on the water that somebody had a drive by (shark) but never heard another peep about it. Steph did a lot better than I did, one Pink that I let go.
  5. That's awesome Tim.
  6. Those snakes have been eating well. You wear chaps or gaitors out in the field?
  7. I've heard of people aligning the broadhead blades with the fetching but in my experience it never seemed to make any difference. Before going through the hassle of trying to "time" them I would just fling a couple down range and see how they fly. Some broadheads historically just fly well regardless, others not so much.
  8. Places I deer hunt have a huge difference in both the number of deer seen and other hunters seen between archery and general rifle season. I seldom see more than 2 or 3 other people while bowhunting. As an added bonus, during archery season you don't have people scoping you from the other side of the canyon.
  9. The omelet in a bag works really well for group cookouts. The amazing thing is that when you toss all the goodies into the bag with the eggs, when it's done, they all end up "inside" the egg just like an omelete. It's like magic. I've got a mongo sized frying pan that will hold a couple of onions, 3 pounds of bacon and almost 10 pounds of potatoes. Omelets compliment it well. Fixed it for you Bisley......Haha, Friday used to shrimp cocktail day at work. I would stop at the grocery store on the way back to the shop and pick up a bag of frozen shrimp and throw it in a safe place near the turbo on the Dodge Sprinter van. All the office cats would swarm around the truck when I would get back knowing I had shrimp and cocktail sauce I don't eat breakfast until around noon. On stand until mid morning then moving to ridge tops to glass for deer bedding down and possible stalks.

  11. Pounded thin cut London broil, wrapped around salt, pepper, onion and becon. Pan fry, put in pot, bring to boil then simmer slow. Gravy from stock
  12. I thought that's what the hook and skunk cabbage was for? I haven't had elk in probably 30 years. Chasing bunnies up at Knoxville? I'll stick to water. There is a nice spring where I'm headed that flows cold. With old age it seems my gizzard doesn't seem to like the calories or acid of Pepsi. btw in case somebody googled it. Pickles do not belong in Roladen.
  13. I spent a little time working on a meal list for archery season. Fresh chicken eggs keep a long time. Friday dinner gives me an excuse to make a batch of Roladen. If you don't put mustard/mayo/oil/vinegar on a sandwich it doesn't get soggy and nasty. Guess it's time to break out the dehydrator as well.

  14. You tossing blunts at them Thumper? I've had mixed results with them and switch back and forth between blunts and broadheads. Years ago I hit a grouse with a blunt at about 40 yards, it looked like an m-80 went off in a feather pillow
