  1. I picked up the Buck Bomb Rut Kit the other day before a weekend of bow hunting. It was like $6 so figured why not give it a try. I had a few bucks and does walk right by it and not pay any attention to it. I've also used some other brands over the last several years and never had any luck with any of them. Like Huntnfish the only thing consistent with these scents is that they always open up in your pocket or your pack. I spent last night washing my hunting pack to get the doe pee smell out of it.
  2. Maybe he'll make me one then. I don't mind answering to Uncle Nofish for awhile.
  3. Nicely done. Sometimes simple is best. Now the question is what did you charge him for 3 months of labor? If he walked away with that house for $3000 then he got a steal.
  4. You may not need a rotation full of aces but you've got to have something decent to roll out to the mound each game. TB appears to have overall good but not great pitching which is still far better than what the Twins bring. We'll also see how TB fairs long term. So far they've pitched well and taken a short series to game 5 but they still haven't advanced so they haven't gone on any sort of a run just yet.
  5. Very true. It was a fun regular season but I could never get that excited about the Twins making the playoffs knowing that their starting rotation was such a mess.
  6. Lack of options? They had 2 guys that could maybe compete with the Yankees, Berrios and Odorizzi. Berrios couldn't get it done in game 1 and maybe they were thinking instead of wasting Odorizzi for game 2 on the road in NY where its going to be hard to win no matter what they figured they'd take their shot with Dobnak and hope to get lucky by out scoring the Yankees and then hope Odorizzi could shut the yankees down in game 3 back home. Obviously it didn't work but I'm guessing it wasn't going to matter much either way. The Twins were outmatched in every single part of the game. Unless we can seriously beef up our rotation and bullpen I'm guessing we regress back toward being an 85-90 win team next season. Thats probably where we would have been if we didn't catch lightning in a bottle with all of the homers this season.
  7. Ben Affleck - The Accountant Keanu Reeves - Matrix (first one) Brad Pitt - Fight Club or Seven Robert Redford - Spy Game (bonus points for Brad Pitt being in the movie as well) Chevy Chase - Christmas Vacation Nicolas Cage - Conair or National Treasure but he's also done some really bad movies.
  8. Ive never really been a fan of replay. I think we've all seen cases where the refs still screwed it up after replay so we're trading one bad call for another. Its interesting to hear the rules guy they have commenting on the broadcasts. They always give their opinions on how they see the play and whether it should be overturned or not. Yesterday there were 2 reviews that they disagreed with how the officials called the play after review which shows how its all still subjective. You can look at every single play during a game and probably find something to call on both teams if you look hard enough which I think is a case of what happened during Diggs touchdown that was called back. Cook either ran into the defender or intentionally tried to block him. I'm not sure its 100% clear either way and isn't the benchmark supposed to be "clear and indisputable"? Unfortunately now that replay is a thing pandora is out of its box and I don't think it can ever be put back in.
  9. Only 2 comments on the game. 1. What a lousy throw by Cousins in the endzone and what a lousy play call. They were running the ball right down the Packers throats, why would you not keep running it. 2. I think I hate the new PI replay. To take a touchdown off the board because they noticed someone maybe sorta blocking when they reviewed the scoring play is kind of a joke. The PI wasn't called on the field and no one challenged it. When you're reviewing the scoring play it seems like you should only be reviewing if the player got the ball across the line without losing control. Pretty soon they'll be reviewing every lineman to make sure they weren't holding on the play as well and that none of them moved a thousandth of a second before the snap. If that happens I hope they also review every defensive player to make sure they didn't move early, hold, or engage a receiver after 5 yards. It really feels like we've gone too far with this replay thing and they're using it as a answer to everything when sometime you're just exchanging one bad call for another. I think thats all I've got besides the fact that I haven't been real impressed with the NFC north so far. The Packers and Vikings look average to decent but hardly superbowl contenders. The Bears squeaked out a win but they are looking like they don't have much to work with at QB. And the Lions as usual aren't worth talking about.
  10. If we run the ball effectively and have a 28-0 lead late in the game there isn't a need for another Minneapolis Miracle.
  11. I'm sure the Falcons are pumped at the bargain they got out of their QB. Who cares that they lost when they only paid $32,000 per throw versus the Vikings who opened the wallets at spent $140,000 per throw. Although the Falcons probably aren't super excited about paying Julie Jones $230,000 per catch yesterday.
  12. You don't force your QB to needlessly throw the ball in a blow out win just to justify the money he is making. Each game is different, when the opposing team can't stop the run then you run it right at them. When they can't stop the run and you're up 2-3 touchdowns you run it even more to eat up the clock and keep the chains moving. If you want to see how Cousins earned his money yesterday you first look at the standings and focus on the win column. Secondly you look at what he did when he was called upon. He completed 80% of his passes, threw a td on 10% of his throws, and also ran for another TD. He personally accounted for 2 of the 4 TD's. I think he earned his pay check.
  13. I might have to look into a set of those for my Weber gas grill. It would be nice to swap them in and out as needed or to just replace one side so I have both options available.
  14. Here's my off the top of my head list in no particular order 1. Water - several bottles of water ready to go along with my water filter and probably some iodine tablets as well. 2. A supply of medications both prescription and some standard over the counter stuff. 3. Medical kit. A range of bandages from paper cut to major wound. Method or cleaning and stitching major wounds. Antibiotic ointment, disinfectant, etc. Splints, wraps, slings, etc. This could be a very long list so I'll leave it at those basics for now. 4. Action plan with predetermined destinations and maps to those destinations. 5. Food supply 6. small pocket sized camp stove with fuel. 7. Pot for cooking or boiling water 8. Matches/lighter/ferrell rod 9. Fixed blade knife and sharpener 10. Multitool 11. Tarp of some sort of temporary shelter option 12. Seasonal gear - if its winter the gear list goes way up to deal with the cold. 13. Phones and charged up power banks - hopefully there is still service.
  15. If the entire world has gone to $#!% and we're talking long term survival and not just trying to survive until rescue comes then I might take a different approach. The 2 main concerns would be food and protection. For food I'd skip a firearm altogether and instead bring my bow. 1 arrow can be shot hundreds if not thousands of times so it really reduces the fear or risk of running out of ammo. No matter the firearm sooner or later you'll fire your last shot and sourcing more ammo may be impossible. A stock pile of arrows will last a VERY VERY long time. With food being taken care of without use of a firearm I could select a firearm with its primary purpose being protection. In that case I'd probably go with some type of handgun for a couple reasons. Its light and easy to have on you all of the time which is a big advantage. A gun that is sitting 10 feet away doesn't do you much good when really needed so I'd rather ensure my firearm is on my body 100% of the time. Its also the best option for close in protection. I don't see myself needing the ability to protect myself from a person 100 yards away as I can avoid a danger from that distance easy enough without wasting ammo, the best way to survive is to not put yourself at risk in the first place. I'd want the best option for the close quarter situations where I can no longer avoid the danger and must confront it with force. As for exactly what handgun I'm not sure. I'd probably put availability of large amounts of ammo as top factor followed by how effective is the firearm and stopping a threat quickly.
