    WTS Northern California. EZGreen bow press.

    It’s been used 3x. I never bought the Hoyt adapters when I bought my Hoyt bow. Dust and cobwebs are free. I have the regular fingers and some shortys I needed for Mathews bows. I’ll never use it. Works perfectly. Been hanging in my garage for years. Time to go. I won’t ship it. It’s super heavy...

    my PCP airgun is out for turkey season.

    gah..I developed a leak. easily fixed (I think). I had to clean some O-rings and lube them up and reassemble. I have NEW O-rings at the ready if my fix didn't work. here is what I didn't think about. I use a high pressure floor pump to fill the gun. well, I;m now screwed. there is no way...

    Those slim RFID shielded wallets ?

    I kinda want one. The sea of choices; daunting. anything you like or dislike? i‘m a card user, but I still carry cash when I eat/drink with coworkers. Cash keeps me from getting hosed. “Let‘s just split this three ways”. Yea, right. I kinda like the Grip6, but that implies I need to...

    I’m actually thinking about buying a cargo van.

    It makes sense. I am an avid kayak fisherman. I can sleep at lakes and park Wake up And fish. Mountain biking. Bike is inside with me. Sleep and ride. Hunting...ahhh you get the drift. I won’t even mention the Home Depot run... pretty economical actually. A new van is $35k. Get the ford...

    You kayak fishermen. Landing net?

    I almost tipped my boat yesterday reaching way out there for a bass. Seconds before that I struggled to even reach the net since I kept it at the nose of the boat. I bought a cheap short handled net. One used by river trout fisherpeople. I needed a longer handle. I like my net. It’s rubber...

    So I buy this kayak - now I’m trying to catch largemouth bass.

    Who knew it would be so much fun? I started solo fishing when the virus locked us down. It’s a strenuous hike to get to a small park lake. Well, at least the shortcut is strenuous. I just packed in some plastic baits and an UL spinning rod setup. It was game on! Nothing bigger than 2lbs...

    Can you all recommend a fishing face mask for sun protection?

    Not for Covid. I’ve been fishing a lot. I wear a BUFFS face mask but it’s okay. Any fishing dedicated ones? My dermatologist admonished me big time. I need to take her seriously. any recommendations? The waters are so muddy now? With everyone buying face covers.

    Dang! the lockdown has me cruising YouTube. In Florida people are sniping the lizards with air guns. looks like a blast. I just checked and my airgun fits in my airline rifle case. is this really a thing? sanctioned by fish/game? im tempted to buy a second rifle so my brother will go...

    for the holidays, my wife bought me this Partner Steel stove. finally used it.

    last week, was wild. i was in a terrible mindset. just scattered. i was determined not to let my nuttiness torpedo my wife's hopes of going car-camping. i forgot so much stuff!! no axe for splitting big hunks of wood my boss gave me. no lantern fuel of any kind..hahaha..i did bring...

    i use chopsticks damn near daily. cooking, eating, pretending to be a walrus, ETC. (joking about the walrus tusk) i've been considering buying my own (travel) chopsticks. trying to do my part and minimize the disposable stuff in my life. (somewhat). i realized, TITANIUM ones would be a...

    Booze flask?

    I’m not a big drinker, but sometimes a flask seems like a cool idea. Long hikes. Backpack trips, etc. just wondering. Any ideas? I’ve seen very inexpensive lightweight plastic options. But what I’d I want to class it up a bit? Pewter?
