  1. I've run them for a while and had mixed results. Definitely seems to help but like you noted it does make a little noise. As long as there's a little wind it's no big deal but on still days it's noticeable. I've seen young deer 10 ft directly downwind of me who seemed to have no clue I was there. However, as the years have passed, I feel like the older deer are starting to catch on and are getting warier of the ozone smell. Overall, a useful tool, but it's not magic by any means.

    New Deer Rifle

    I agree. The gun is less important than the glass. My rule of thumb is the glass on my rifles is as or more expensive than the gun. It makes a huge difference in target acquisition, low light shooting, accuracy and my confidence as a shooter. One of my best outings as a hunter was done with a borrowed old p.o.s. Remington that had to be held together with zip ties. However, for some reason they had strapped a $2k Zeiss scope to it and that more than made up for the shortcomings of the rifle. I was knocking down running antelope at 200+ yds in low light conditions.... couldn't have done that w/o quality optics that let me peek back into the deep shadows. So moral of the story... buy the best glass you can afford.
  3. I’ll be out. Good luck and be safe gents!
  4. There's a ton of the little suckers on my place. They have now displaced the squirrels as the noisiest critter in the forest. The population really seems to have stepped up in the last few years. Bout time for a dillo hunt.
  5. I expect that's only for certain values of "pellet rifle" where x = a really big pellet moving really fast. https://www.pyramydair.com/article/_50_Caliber_Dragon_Slayer_Air_Rifle_December_2007/45

    Plane ID

    Love 'em and hate 'em at the same time. That airframe can do it all. From cargo hauling to Elint to Direct fire support it's an amazing (if uncomfortable) plane. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_C-130_Hercules There's an Air Guard wing that flies them out of Nashville (or maybe Smyrna.. not sure).
  7. I'm in the market for a rifled shotgun for use on an annual deer hunt. Doesn't need to be pretty or new, just something that'll shoot MOW (minute of whitetail) at 100 yards. I've got a variety of rifles for trade as well as ammo and sundry other trade goods. I can do cash as well, but hey... trading is more fun. Let me know what you've got.
  8. Good stand at a great price. I'd jump on it if I didn't already own one. GLWS
  9. Agreed. If you make it up to Nashville, I'd take it. Just don't have time to get down your way. GLWS
  10. They are not. The forest service roads are the way to go... gets you away from the chaos near the main roads. However we did run into two different groups on horse back.... not a bit of orange in sight and none of them had a clue it was hunting season.
