  1. No doubt. It's probably legal but I think it could lead to a very awkward conversation with a TWRA officer.
  2. Ok, I see now. My bad. The bullet loads from the muzzle and the fire stick from the breech. Interesting.
  3. I looked it up. Sure enough that would be illegal to use in TN during muzzleloader season. From the Hunting Guide: 7. Muzzleloading firearms are defined as those firearms which are incapable of being loaded from the breech. http://www.eregulations.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/19TNHD-LR8.pdf
  4. That's cool but can we use it in Tn during muzzleloader season? Technically it's a breech loader.
  5. LOVE these guys!!! Heading to Louisville tomorrow to see them play. I haven't been into a band like this since high school. Modern Blue Grass... Highly Recommend!!!
  6. I can answer the last question. It is illegal to hunt with thermals or ir in TN. You'll need to head down to Texas for that. Actual scopes for rifles are super expensive but there are several handheld units out there that are a little more reasonable. I've got a little handheld FLIR that I enjoy playing with. It makes going for walks after dark a lot of fun. Is it worth the money? Your call, but the prices have come down quite a bit recently. The FLIR Scout TK is going for around $600. Handheld unit with only a 100 yard range but if you've got the coin to spare....
  7. I beg to differ. Pretty sure he was smoking that awesome meerschaum in that one. Pretty sure that’s Good Bad and Ugly.
  8. When you need to kill a T-Rex hiding behind a refrigerator in your neighbors house, accept no substitute.
  9. 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.
  11. I’ll be out. Good luck and be safe gents!
  12. 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.
