Morning all, Friday here and very very windy! Likely to be 40mph+ on the hunting grounds so makes sitting in a tree stand rather unattractive!

Scrummy

Mornin’ all, very windy here also. Calling for wind & rain tomorrow for the opening of muzzleloader. I’ll be in the tree house.

Evening gents.

just got back from the first day of the KCR machine gun shoot.
Helped with the assault rifle and military bolt action match. It was a good day, but very cool. I think I stayed a level below comfortable cool all day. 
The bad news we got was that this was probably the last assault rifle match for the MG shoots, and that the shoot is going to be shortened to just Friday and Saturday. Very sad for those of us who have been coming to the shoot for decades like a bi-annual trek to Mecca.

Morning folks,

Hope everyone had good weekends?

Saturday was a bit of a but. Found out there was a problem with our vanity unit so another hold up for the bathroom… That was Saturday gone.

Sunday I was doing a first aid course. This is good for work but also included an additional  “Forestry” so more to do with stopping catastrophic bleeding (Playing with Tourniquets and “Quikclot” type stuff which I hadn’t done before). The Forestry Commission in the UK requires that stalkers have this First Aid at Work + Forestry Course. My hunting ground isn’t Forestry Commission stuff but some large land owners are under pressures from their insurers to follow suit. I’m not a huge fan of additional hoops and paperwork but this course was actually well delivered and could be useful in a tight spot.

BF, sorry to hear about the issue with the MG shoot.

Scrummy

Mornin’ all, no luck with the muzzleloader over the weekend. Saw lots of doe but no bucks. Rifle opens next Saturday.

Heading to Pittsburgh tomorrow for the NASGW Show. We’ll have Dickinson Arms and HSM there.

Safe travels Skip. 

 Scrummy, I don't know how you put up with all of that Government intervention. Sounds like a major PITA to me. 

BF, bummer on the KCR shoot.

Bud, wake up and leave the sheep alone!

That is a mutually exclusive statement... if Bud is awake, the sheep are in danger...

Mornin gents.

Overall, the weekend was a good time. I got to visit with some old friends, and made some new ones. Got to talk to Dolf Goldsmith, a very interesting gentleman who has written 5 volumes on the Browning machine guns, as well as books on the Maxim, Vickers, and other machine guns. He also speaks Dutch, Cantenese, and probably a few other languages. I also spent way too much money again. Didn't get to watch the firing line to much, but that may change in the future. I do feel feel refreshed now that I have been to machine gun Mecca.

Afternoon gents. Out running around in this nastiness they call weather doing errands and dealing with the VA, which to my surprise has actually been beneficial. Got to thinking about what to do this year hunting wise but with nerve damage in my hand pulling a trigger on an animal seems to not be ethical. Probably going to pick up some reloading materials and use my time wisely while I heal. Plus my list of things to do around the house seem to multiply 🙄.

Gonna pick up reloading, fix the smoker that came with the house we bought, learn to cook/smoke food, do some small interior renovations and build my workbench area in the garage. Anyone else have any ideas or projects they want me to do while I’m at it since the ol lady seems to think I run like a well-oiled factory 😂😂😂

Mike,

I could do with a work / reloading bench combo jerky maker / smoker / beer fridge unit rigging up over the weekend if you could squeeze it in?

Thanks,

Scrummy

Morning all!

Hope this finds you well. Grey and muggy here, still hoping for that cold snap to start the vegetation die back. Not sure when I am going to get hunting next. My weekends keep getting eaten up!

Hey Mike, ask Peddler about my schemes for payment in kind ;)

Mornin gents.

Ed, it's probably easier to tell us where you haven't been.

Mike, I'm looking at retirement in 46 days, and I can tell you my next year is already filled with projects for Mrs. BF. When I get the new backhoe, things will get real serious then.

Mostly cloudy, starting in low 40s and going to mid 50s.

My nephew put out a few trail cams on my place that text his phone when they are activated. He says I'm covered up in deer.
