the gift of a 30-30 from my father on my first outing

my grandad's 30-06 that I inherited

The great buy, couldn't pass up 7mm Mag my uncle sold me.

My favorites because of the story behind the rifles, not the caliber.

      Well every year I get excited for turkey 🦃 season, but this year it’s really bad I need the outdoors to clear my mind!!
    • ANYFISH2
      The Hunting Public is the only YouTube channel I have hit subscribe to.  Great channel. As far as fishing channels I check out quite a few, but most get kind of redundant.  I have been watching more of the how to and product testing channels lately.
    • PeachyHans
      It has been perfect weather to get out there and enjoy the water. 😀
    • smurfy
      Sure was. And those 2 treated about everyone there that way!!😂   Oh yea them outdoor movie theaters, UFFDA. Kimball ballroom as well as me Jim's in Foley where good for a change of scenery. Seen head east there. That was awesome.

      Although I suspect I'm younger than a few of you. I used to remember as a kid going to the cabin with my dad and his buddy, I sat in the middle of a normal cab pickup, they both smoked, windows cracked about an 1/8 of an inch if I was lucky. Friday night we had hot dogs and canned vegetables, we'd catch walleye and 14-15 inch crappies off the dock and they were filleted without a second thought. Saturday nights was round steak and more canned veggies and Sunday we would head home with a cooler of fish. Not that I condone it in the least but there was always a six pack playmate cooler between my feet with high life and I would normally stuff a caprisun in there.

      Angling Buzz or lindners they are on there own website as well as You Tube. I enjoy them they are straight forward and a variety of species. Otherwise I do not watch much on you tube I would rather fish myself then watch someone else fish😃!. You are correct though you can learn a lot of techniques quick on line.

      Smurf I hung out in there so much Ma Pa Shulte treated me like one of there own sons 😀 That was a fun one! always a good mixed crowd. 
    • smurfy
      Well for all intensive purposes, the first post was related to resorts, opening if fishing in relation to the current situation. Just saying.
    • smurfy
      Yea no kidding  both you forgot the river roost and there bands. The pedistrians where awesome.   That is unless you 2 where to wet behind the ears yet!!;😂🤔
    • IceHawk
      Yes a big Thanks to all the insight everyone added to this subject I learned a bunch myself As a Moderator it did get a little tricky at times but discussions like this and fear uncertainty and  anxiety will bring that out with anyone at times . The thread can keep going on if some want to participate.  Its not locked I just felt it was time for myself  to take a break from it.  I guess if I'm allowed to fish somewhere all be allowed to fish somewhere. If not  Ill accept it and Ill fish another day just another stepping stone in life.
