If you have the choice drive your own and get them to pay you the government rate for the mileage you drive. We had this option for years before forcing everyone into a company car.
Driving your own and getting reimbursed allows you to stay out of an uncomfortable mid-priced company car, usually...

Hammertime, I'm hoping to thin some property for the first time this year. One 40 acres parcel of mixed, mostly pine is probably past due at around 20 years old. Another 80 acre parcel is probably in need of a few years more growth, at least the majority but I'd like it done where needed.
I use t...

Yeah, outside of the "Storm" branding I think there are a number of differences. The mags for this model are interchangeable only with the 92 series as far as I can tell so the PX4 isn't the key companion pistol.
Forgot to add as well that Slickguns has a $30 coupon code off this model so your n...

You are correct about deer loving vetch but there is nothing cheap about it. It is WAY more expensive compared to other seeds. Granted, the seed is small like clover & will cover a large area but 1 bag can run upwards of $150.[/quote]

Obviously with the small amount of acreage I'm mainly trying to attract deer but most of my neighbors are all 1000 plus acre land owners with only moderate pressure, almost exlusively used for timber but some is leased to hunt.
I haven't done spring/...
| Outdoor Board|| Food Plots-What is your best for deer hunting? - alexanderjcoop on 7/18/11 at 2:40 am|
I have small acreage...under 150 I own but often lease a few hundred adjoining. I have 5 food plots each between 1-3 acres.
I've been using oates and winter wheat mainly but I changed up one this last year and added turnips, brassica and rape as well as oates to one plot and it did well.
