Thank y'all. Looks like I'll be buying a new wardrobe :lol: the plant is right on the lake and I'm sure that wind chill will be killer. It's going to be a culture shock, that's for damn sure!...

Heading to Grand Rapids, MI for work in January for a month. I've never been in that kind of cold with the wind chill. What brands are the warmest for layering, and how many layers to wear? Want to be as prepared as possible....

Wow, when I was a kid I found a dog in the neighborhood. He was a black lab mix that I named blackie. He was abused and starved and I would bring him food everyday. Finally about a week of doing this he came up to me and let me pet him. He followed me home. My dad didn't want me having him along wit...

My uncle has a 4 wheel drive golf cart with some little ITPs on it. That thing is bad arse. It will make it around the 2,600 acre lease and go through anything (hunting wise at least) that a 4 wheeler will. We've snuck up on many of turkey in it. I've thought about getting one for my lease, but I lo...

I wish I had a picture of it, but in high school I'd work for my cousin in the dirt pit after it rained. If drive the Volvo off road truck with mud and go dump it to let it dry in the sun. That sumbitch had 64" swampers on it with 8 wheel drive. I sank it to the frame. 2 D9's and a motor grater got ...

Good luck man. I hate that damn feeling. I saw a few does but no bucks around to chase. You know I'm a duck hunter at heart when I saw about 12 pairs of woodies fly over and and all I wanted to do was go find them :lol:
You'll find him in the morning :cheers:...

Back at it this afternoon. Came to my favorite ladder stand looking over 50 yard plot. Saw some fresh scrapes this morning so decided to change. Heard some chasing going on in the woods, but nothing yet. 55 degrees with a slight breeze from the north. It's a beautiful afternoon!...

I'm not sure. I was told to bring $1,500 and that will cover me for airfare, hunts, shells, and whatever else I need. I will get breakdown from my brother in a bit and update. 4 of us are hunting. Myself, my brother, my cousin, and my uncle. I just found out about it, so I've been running around lik...

My brother shear waves pipelines with a company who strictly does pipeline inspection. We are both NDT inspectors and I X-ray them. My company is mostly pulp mill, but I've ventured to nuclear plants and refineries. I've inspected a shite load more than he has from piping to bolts. Hell, I've X-raye...
