  1. Back on the block.  

    Well, I don’t use her and have only used her in my yard and she sits. I need to get one out of the barn so I’m listing my:

    Teknetics T2 plus, plus is with the boost mode. It comes with the standard 11” DD coil, and also a NEL Sharpshooter 9.5x 5.5 coil AND Teknetics 5" Search Coil 

    Also will include the  Tek-point pin pointer.   Now this setup is in NEW Working condition and NEW Looking condition, New to the bones.

    I have  799.00 into it and will sell by way of PayPal with shipping included to the CONUS.

    I am asking   $550.    


  2. It’s true, I seem to be more,,, for lack of better words,, relaxed when I bow hunt. I have to sit quieter, be still, walk slower, cover my sent more, use the wind more, etc., Same for my hand guns too.

    With a rifle, I can reach out a lot further and, granted you still have to be “watchful” but, it’s just for me a quicker pace.

  3. Yes, we have a special season for any muzzleloader (trad or inline) after req season, for bow we have a month and a half before reg season and also couple weeks after season.


    No, my closest to taking a safe shot with the bow was 2 years ago, afternoon, after taking that picture above in the am, when my hunting buddy was a 100 yards or so from me and he had 2 bucks chasing a doe (early season) jump right over him with no chance of a shot. I heard them coming and they became aware of me. The smaller buck was off to my right in brush, the larger (big) one right in front of me, say 25 yards, staring at me down HEAD on.    

     Number 1, I did not feel I had a good enough shot with him  head on. His head was down, (I don't feel comfortable with a front chest shot) he was snorting and stomping his front feet. 

    Which brings up Number 2,  he was actually scaring me, I though for sure he was going to charge. With a gun, he would have been my biggest, with a bow I was just trying to figure an escape route if needed.

    My biggest so far was with a Ruger Bisley in 45 Long Colt (which I wish I still had) which at that time I was reloading. These were reloads you could not fire out of a weaker Single Action 45LC. ( I can shoot them out of my present, a Ruger Vaquero) .. Long story short, nice chest shot a 20 yards that put him right down and out, like I like it. All my rest were with a rifle.

  4. OMG..   That's about the only response to these pictures and posts. I can't even imagine the pain and discomfort. The only cactus we have around here is the little cute ones in Home Depot garden center and now I don't think Ill ever pass by them again. 

  5. I was just watching one of Bills videos and as he was walking past a neat looking plant he seemed to be wary of it.

    He mentioned the name so I figured to look it up..

    Cholla Cactus

    WOW,  I would be scared to be anywhere around them. Sounds like you don’t even have to be to close to them.  Up here in the great north east the only plant we have to be cautious of is really poison Ivy, and dealing with that is just a nuisance.  How do you guys deal with that, from what I have read, jumping cactus. I thought watching for rattlesnakes is all you guys had to worry about.
