I saw the trail cam pic perry24 posted of the buck with some decent antler growth so it seemed like a good time to start a new thread for 2021-22.

In a new segment this year, fullmoon will be hosting a weekly webinar where he talks tips, tricks, and even gives hints as to the general coordinates of his favorite honey holes. 😁

Currently pouring rain here in 4B. Yeah, the humidity has been crazy last few days...
Happy for my freshly planted clover/oats plot though[emoji16]

Yeah, we have had a lot of rain in 4B. But I am not complaining compared to yrs. past. Prior to this last week and a half to two weeks, we were very dry! My grass has gone from dead to being out of control! Mowed thurs night and it literally looks like I didn’t mow already this morning.
The bad part…heavy rains are washing my drainage ditch/run out on side of driveway and cutting my yard back. Going to have to bite the bullet and finally prob install a drain pipe. I love throwing $ away into excavating activity [emoji1787]
Hopefully this has helped my plot…I need to check in that this weekend.

No complaints here either. I'm hoping there's been enough rain to produce a good crop of acorns too. Last year (little rain) deer activity at my early season oak stand was pretty much absent ...as contrasted to the other years when in one evening I could see a dozen deer within 50 yards demolishing acorns.
And I hear you on the subject of necessary projects draining the money right out of your account. I'm about neck deep in that kind of projects at our place this year!

I hear the rain comments. I hate to complain about it. The gypsy caterpillars stripped my trees pretty bad. They are now all growing new leaves but the ground is soaked and not much need for a whole lot more rain for a couple weeks.

Pouring now
Mushrooms popping up all over in peoples’ yards right now in NW PA in my neck of the woods. We’ve had plenty of rain but not overly deluged.

Lol… the joys of home ownership. I forgot to add our AC went out overnight Thursday. By the time I was able to leave work and have it torn apart it was up to 81 in the house! Thank god it was only the capacitor and not the compressor itself. That unit is 12 yrs old and on its last leg too….so add that to the list [emoji481]🥲!

I'm in the same boat. Mine needed a recharge back in June, but likely has a leak. It is 15 years old.

I had a tree fall and take out my power line on 4th of July. Fortunately, PPL had it repaired and power back on within 3 hours.

A string of winter greens brassicas went in next to the clover this morning, NY fall plots get done next Saturday weather permitting.


Got a txt from my taxidermist this morning and our 2020 deer mounts are done. Left is my NY archery, right is my wife's PA archery and the euro is my PA archery. The two Pa bucks were both shot at the top of that food plot pictured about 3 weeks apart.
