  Spring Squirrels
Posted by: BillHoo - 8 hours ago - Forum: Small Game Hunting - Replies (1)

I ask every year and I think I get the same answers, but I feel compelled to see if anyone is hunting them Jun 1 thru 15th?

I don't plan to go out.  Already too buggy for me.

This last season I did not go hunting at all. Spent most of my time chasing stocked trout! That was fun!

Waitin til the next frost.

  Proposed updates Updates to Gun Control Act
Posted by: HeidelbergJaeger - Yesterday, 08:24 PM - Forum: Politics & Sunday Hunting - No Replies

I found this information and saw it could affect the way gun transfers are handled in the future; additionally for military folks the proposal could allow them to buy guns in their duty station location as well as their home state of record. 

The Firearms Interstate Commerce Reform Act would: * Permit licensed dealers to transfer firearms [rifles, shotguns, handguns] to out-of-state buyers if the transaction complies with the laws of the state of both the transferor and the transferee. * Allow licensed dealers to sell firearms at out-of-state gun shows provided state laws of transferor and the transferee are complied with. * Provide face-to-face transfer of firearms between licensed dealers. Right now, dealers must ship a firearm, significantly increasing theft risk. * Allow U.S. Armed Forces members and spouses to purchase firearms as legal state residents of the state their duty station is located in, as well as the state they maintain a residence in while serving. Right now, U.S. Armed Forces members can only purchase a gun in their present duty station”.

  Nothing conclusive for Northam
Posted by: HeidelbergJaeger - 05-22-2019, 01:13 PM - Forum: Politics & Sunday Hunting - Replies (6)

Isn’t really a win for him in my opinion. Times Dispatch story says that the President of his medical school knew at the time of the yearbook in 84 and before the election that the photo was on the Governor’s personal yearbook page.

As this neither confirms nor denies the Gov’s personal admission/ reversal on the photo, I submit that the school’s best interest was served, not the public’s.

There will be those who want to equate this somehow to Donald Trump. I think that the top three folks in Virginia politics are tainted, and there could be no other outcome which would benefit the Democrat party in VA other than an outright confirmation that Northam was not in the photo.

  Bow Fishing
Posted by: Thummy - 05-22-2019, 10:39 AM - Forum: Freshwater Fishing - Replies (3)

Does anyone bow fish?   Got some place to give it a try.  Just started looking at bow set ups.  Anyone have any advice?  Didn't realize a bow for bow fishing would be so expensive.

They don't get a lot of attention these days, but some of the most fond memories I have heard from other hunters have been about shouldering their father or grandfather's lever action 30-30 or .45-70 for the first time.

I came across this article on a new Marlin lever action, and though I've never owned one, I have to say this Marlin caught my eye.

  Joyriding VA National Guard LT plans to plead insanity
Posted by: HeidelbergJaeger - 05-15-2019, 09:35 AM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Folks probably remember this guy from last year;  [Image: ZWDPMZTMBZFFRF5UTAMRCFQAA4.png]
Joshua Yabut, a soldier accused of stealing an armored personnel carrier from a National Guard base in June, is expected to plead not guilty by reason of insanity. (Richmond City Sheriff's Office via AP)

The Army National Guard officer accused of stealing an armored personnel carrier from Fort Pickett last June is scheduled to go on trial May 20.
But Joshua Yabut’s trial has been put on hold because the 30-year-old first lieutenant plans to plead not guilty by reason of insanity, according to WTVR. A new hearing in Nottoway County, Virginia, is set for July 2.
Yabut is accused of stealing the military vehicle and leading police on a more than 60-mile chase to Richmond, Virginia, while under the influence of drugs. He said he had permission to take the APC, but Virginia National Guard officials denied that in initial reports.

Emergency personnel surround a National Guard military vehicle taken from Fort Pickett, Va., on June 5, 2018. Police said they arrested an officer who took the armored personnel carrier after chasing him for more than 60 miles. (Grace Hollars/Richmond Times-Dispatch via AP)

The charges of driving under the influence and unauthorized use of a vehicle were dismissed in a deal in September, but he still faced a charge of felony eluding police, according to the AP. He was found competent after a 2½-month evaluation at a mental hospital.

Yabut’s case took another twist in January when he violated the terms of his bond and traveled to Iraq, somehow losing his ankle monitoring bracelet along the way. He used his valid military ID to board a flight at Naval Station Norfolk before flying commercially from Charlotte, North Carolina, the rest of the way to Baghdad. He returned to Norfolk two days later, according to WTVR. His military ID is no longer valid and he was put back behind bars.

This guy is a slippery crook. Remanded to custody doesn't mean the same thing that it used to. The real crime is that he stole a M1068 Command post carrier, and not something that had any offensive capabilities. Being a lieutenant, he can always try the "I was lost" argument..

  Gauging interest in a meet up
Posted by: HeidelbergJaeger - 05-14-2019, 07:39 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (32)

Wanted to see if there were enough of us interested in the Chesterfield/Henrico county area to get together for an evening at a Wild Wings or Mission BBQ?

In Germany we held a monthly hunter’s meeting at the Rod and Gun club and exchanged tips, told tall tales, and enjoyed a local beer. Possibly can do the same thing here?

Feel free to chime in.
