    Rest in peace John Glenn, astronaut, fighter pilot, first American to orbit the earth. He was one of those men who Tom Wolfe wrote about in his book "The Right Stuff". A great man and a hero for many of us boys who grew up in that era. John Glenn truly had "The Right Stuff". http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2016/12/john-glenn/john-glenn.html

    I don't care to hunt them Cory but I sure wish they'd let somebody do it. Just reduce the population by a few thousand and a little healthy fear of man is all they need. And by the way, they cancelled the 2016 hunt because of the "bears lives matter" protesters. No kidding. What was the reasoning on banning the hounds Willie? I hear it's about the only practical way to hunt the cats and have a decent chance to take one.

    A lot more lucky having no bears in my opinion.

    Wow, those are some fine bucks! Willie, we go to tremendous lengths to keep the bears from smashing ours. My standard configuration is hanging them off a 30' wood pole with a few hundred nails with the heads cut off driven in backwards from waist to head high. I drill pilot holes and hold the nails with vise grips and tap on the vise grips to drive them so as not to dull the points. There will be hair and blood on the nails pretty regularly but I've never had one climb over them. Even with all that, the bears will usually be waiting when the feeder fires, eat most of the feed and keep the deer buggered up. Tripod type feeders won't last a night here.

    I've often wondered why a version of automatic deadends or sleeves hasn't been developed for cabling trees. No twisting of anything, just slide on the wire and it grabs.

    Yeah that's brilliant. Try this one in the tree; "Start by putting one foot on the bracket to the rear of the saw"

    Now there's an idea. As long as it's watertight, I like the Vibe concept. Simple and small. Even smaller than a pine cone.

    Those big bucks will drive you batty with their super sensory perception Gary. If I think back on all the close encounters where they just knew something wasn't right and put the slip on me.......... Thanks Scott, it's a pretty cool place to hunt.

    Me either Butch. It was taboo with the power company, conductivity and all that but for anyone that works for a living, it's just asking for trouble.

    Hung by mine on a tree step once coming down out of a tree while hunting, fortunate it didn't strip all the meat off. Bent the ring pretty bad, after I was able to get it off I've never worn it again. Great response from Mark.

    Wish I could say that Willie! Instinct shot for years, but my instincts were obviously not that good. How far was he?

    Man, if Cuba's that kind of paradise, I bet they've got people swimming by the gillions just to get there. I'm surprised several of you guys are still here!
