A gas powered pole saw changed my life for hanging tree stand sets on private, especially when trying to tuck ladder stands into cover.

On the boot talk..

The meindl shoe last of roomy wide toe box, tapered mid foot with a deep snug heel pocket is perfect for me, those cork footbeds are also the only boots I have immediately swapped for after market insoles. A detail I noticed is they place their vortex seam offset and not up the back of the boot to reduce possible rubbing if any heel lift is present.

Has Meindl changed their waterproofing? I went 2 for 2 on leaks after a year of wear just past warranty and it soured me on them. That was 10 years ago buying thru Cabelas.

Stopover for the night in Virginia coming home from vaca in SC. Still a lot going on between now and the end of August but ready to segue into prepping for mid September.

For those who put in for elk tags, when is the drawing taking place? Even though I didn’t put in, it’s fun to watch the live stream of the drawing.

I don't have any older ones to know and I don't have enough miles to talk durability about mine yet as they are only 3 months and 50 miles in. The hanwags are 2yrs and 200+ miles strong on waterproofing

Put a ladder stand up this morning for my older neighbor. Had to hand-cut a path with machete for about 200 yards. Was a long morning…lol, but his std is tucked in and nice… he loves it. Got it for him for Christmas. Also tightened straps and did maintenance on two of my stds.
Then we dove into 2 dozen blue crabs…which were delicious!! Love blues!!
Just put in for archery elk bull drawing as well.

Tags in 3A going fast. Under 700 left now. I sent my application on Thursday but Second tag is not looking likely at this point. Oh well, even if I don’t get it, I will get my second choice for 5C.

Looks like I was lucky enough to get a 2cnd 3A tag. I’m surprised
Congrats! Put mine in the mail on Thursday morning but no dice and still not processed for my 2nd choice of 5C. I wonder if it's even at the courthouse right now or still floating around in the mail. Oh well. I at least have one antlerless tag for up there.

Really handy just dropping them off at the post office in wellsboro Saturday before… They keep a separate bin for pink envelopes and they seem to be there on Monday morning at the treasures office.

Sounds like they understand the area and place a priority on those pink envelopes. I’ve got to imagine clerks at many of the county courthouse offices cringe when they see those stacks of pink envelopes coming in as it’s an additional workload on top of what they already have to do.

Well if they are like local township they aren’t exactly overworked….

Sent to the Delco courthouse but I had my parents mail it from their Berks county PO since we were away. They have always complained about their PO but who knows what happened. In the mail Thursday morning and nothing through end of business today. I will probably see that I was awarded a 5C tag at 8 AM tomorrow morning.

Can’t really say I am missing out as I didn’t punch one tag up in Potter last year.
