Nice job. I use to hunt the early season but now wait until October to start.

It won't get here soon enough. I will be in North Dakota this weekend but just to get things ready for October.

Corn down in October? You might talk to the farmer about that. All my friends are expecting a late harvest this year due to the cold weather. Just a heads up.

In my area and the ranch I hunt, there is not a crop there due to all the spring flooding.

They did not have time to get it in.

When we do have corn, typically it is not harvested until Nov 5th or so. There have been years when the corn was still in after rifle opener. That makes for a tough hunt.

Yeah, I know it's more excitement and hope than sureity. We'll go as late in Oct. as possible to get closer to the Rut though.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light. 
    • I did.  Political.
