Had an interesting experience coming back from Todd's house ona long [PoorWordUsage] hill off Fairview. I think I'm looking for some winter studs for the front end of the van for hill climbing.. Thanks for the help Todd that baby got dicey trying to back up and run, needed a friend. Thanks Pal..

BTW Peanut was jealous when I got home, she kept looking at me like I cheated on her, LOL.

Stopped at Dunkin Donuts in Oneida and was talking with a guy who works there and he said Fairview and and your road do not get great attention as far as plowing and salt during the winter, the kid told me all they care about is making sure rt. 5 is clear..

We only picked up an 1" of snow total in southeast Rome overnight

Call ya later...

It was 20* even this morning and the 2 big ponds in the back 150 are locked up tighter than Timmy's Wallet grin

I wonder if there are any Pannies in them. The rich old lady next door probably had them stocked when they were made...I will inquire.

I arrived here to teach this morning and it was a whole 9*...that makes me happy. It is supposed to reach 40* they say...but it will be more like 30-35*. Then the weather guy this AM said we have an Arctic Blast coming in on Thursday with some snow. I know the place I fished on Mon. has made at least another 2 inches and shouldn't be affected too much by todays weather. Then the cold front will tighten it right back up for some fishing this weekend! I will keep you guys updated on the conditions.

    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
    • And aren't a big fan of eating it?   I'm OK with marinating and grilling the breasts but the rest of the family aren't big fans.  And I can say I prefer duck too.   So I tried smoking the breasts - and loved it!  And now I want more!   I took the simple route since it was my first try.  I picked up some High Mountain game bird and poultry brine and let em brine for two days chilled.   I put them on my smoker grill with the coals in the side fire box.  4 handfuls of wet mesquite chips during the 2.5 hour smoke at about 250 degrees.  I brushed with olive oil and teriyaki marinade to finish.  Pink and tender throughout, not jerked dry and tough.  Phenomenal.     I ate the last one yesterday on the deer stand.  After pulling the tenderloin off for the chefs treat, I just slice it thin against the grain.     Give it a try if you feel like the only things to do with geese are to grind em up.
    • So what do you propose we cut in order to offset that grand per job subsidy? Please be specific.   Do you propose doing the same for competing companies or do you like to play favorites?
