Imported Sugar Beets In Michigan!!! REALLY?????

OK   REALLY???? This past weekend I was back at it, deer hunting on our property in Manistee, MI.  After hunting the first day we decide to run to town and pick up a few bags of sugar beets to put out for the deer.  We pull in to the local trading post and see lots of sugar beets piled up by the gas pump, the front door, out by the road.  The first thing that got our attention was the fact that up until this week of hunting the sugar beets were $5.99 a bag or 3-$15.  Look on the counter and lo and behold now they are 3 bags for $18.. Kinda like the gas price gouging I would say but whatever that’s another topic.  We buy the bags and throw them in the back of the truck.  I look on the bag and lo and behold it says Grown in USA… Grown in Mexico.  The grown in Mexico box was checked.  First thing that came to my mind was usually people use old onion bags to put beets in and that is what it was Mexico onion bags with sugar beets in them.  After further review, nope nice little Mexican looking fellow with the absolute fact that these are actually Mexico grown Beets.  OK just so people know, Sebewing Michigan is the sugar beet CAPITAL OF THE WORLD.  The CAPITAL OF THE WORLD… So why is it that we have Mexico grown sugar beets in Michigan at all.  I love the fact that we can keep other countries economies going but let our own Michigan growers suffer because of it.  I will never buy those beets again after noticing this and I guess if there are no beets except those the deer will get some sort of American carrots, apples, corn who knows. This is ridicules we need to stop the madness.   Please comment your thoughts, please subscribe to my blog, tell friends, and have a great day.

My First Whitetail

As I sit in my tree stand, my best friend only 120 yards away I remember or tried to all the things my dad had been telling me:

1. Be still

2. Be Quiet

3. Take a breathe and hold it to settle before shooting

4. Pull bow down to just behind front shoulder and smoothly release

5. If you hit a deer, watch it as far as you can see it so as to find the blood trail.

6. Remember trees, rocks, grass, anything different the deer runs by.

So im sitting in my tree stand 20 feet closer to God watching the squirrels come and go, watching the blue jays fly from tree to tree, and the passing crows making tons of noise in the sky.  I then look over and lo and behold 11 yeah I said it 11 does and little ones are working their way into my bait.  OK before people say anything this was like 22 years ago and yes baiting in Michigan was legal then.  As the deer filtered around me I remember a couple little ones kinda playing and fighting around the bait.  One would come in and raise its legs and jump on the other ones back, and visa versa.  After watching them go at it for a while and the other ones eating, they started to walk off.  One by one right by my stand, single file 10 yards away.  As I watched them walking off I heard a stick snap off to the right.  I turned my head and lo and behold a nice 8 point buck with about a 16 inch spread was walking down the same path as the does.  It was rut time and he knew what he was after.  As he got closer to the stand I eased up and grabbed my bow and got ready.  The buck eased its way down the run and stopped!!! 8 yards right there.  I tried to calm myself as I was shaking vigorously.  As i drew my bow I remembered and took the deep breath, let half out and held.  As I settled the pin behind the shoulder I released the Easton arrow tipped with a wasp 4 blade.  I watched the arrow pierce the side of the buck and prepared to watch it run off.  To my surprise though, I was stunned.  The buck in his mighty glory just stood there.  I thought I missed for a second even though i knew I had hit the deer.  I looked again and seen the hole, blood dripping out the side.  He put his head down and started following the does again.  I now am dumb founded as the deer just walks away.  I am wanting to mak trees but he is just right there.  The buck walks about 20 yards behind me and stops.  After looking around he suddenly bolts straight left, I watch anxiously as he runs 20 yards falls spins in a circle 2 times and passes.  I then get really excited shaking out of my boots.  I’m sure it was a whole five minutes before I look over and here comes another 8 point into the bait I had another tag but It was a smaller basket rack buck and I had bagged what I came for.  As the sun faded into the sunset my buddy came and got me, I explained to him what I had shot and he didn’t believe me at first.  We walked over and to his surprise a nice 8 point lay there in the flash lit dark.  We left and met our dads and little to our surprise it was a great night, not only did I shoot a nice 8 point, but my buddies dad shot a nice 8 point, and my dad a 6 point.  3 deer in one night of hunting.. I have never experienced an evening of hunting since then as far as harvesting.  We returned to the boat and returned home.  It was and is one of the most memorable experiences I have ever had.  I hope all of you have had a memorable experience like mine.  If so please share in the comments.  Thank you Hope you enjoyed this post.

When I first pulled my new Primal out of the box I really was amazed at how great it looked.  The G-fade camo was amazing and really set the bow off.  After I adored my new piece of hunting equipment for a while I decided to take it to the local bow shop and get all my accessories installed.  I put the G5 sight and also the G5 drop away rest on the bow.  I brought it home and set the target up, 10 yards.  I put the pin on, released, and wow it blew right through the target quickly.  I was amazed at how fast the bow was and the fact that my other bow did not blow thru.  Again I shot and the same result.  After a quick adjustment, bullseye.  Then to 20 yards again bullseye.  The bow took me less than 15 mins to start driving tacks at 20 yards something I could not accomplish with my prior bows.  I am a good shot but a spot shooter I havent been.  The bow is smooth, fast, and looks amazing in the G-fade camo.  If you don’t know what G-fade is the limbs of the bow are camo and as the camo comes down the riser the paint fades to an all black riser.  This is helpful in all hunting situations as the black fades with the shadows of the trees, it also blends with the black insides of a ground blind.  To say the least I love this bow.  The bow is sooooooo quiet, smooth, no vibrations, it’s just a great all around bow.  I have been happy with all my previous bows (Illusion, Mach x) Both have been extremely quiet and great shooters but so far this has been my favorite.  I would recommend the Quest Primal bow to everyone!!!!!!

Ruttin’ Review: Rocky mid-weight base layer

Posted in 6or7, antlers, archery, bear, deer, experience, fishing, fleece, g5, g5 quiver, guns, Hunting, outdoors, recipe, reviews, scent-lok, sheds, sportsman, team dirt, typical, Uncategorized, vertigo with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 27, 2010 by THENONTYPICALSPORTSMAN

A little about  the Rocky Mid-Weight base layer system before I get started.

Rocky SIQ Atomic helps control human odor on the microbial level

Stretch fit system moves with you

Performance fleece 1 sided brushed for comfort

Advanced moisture management technology

This hunting season I thought I would try a base layer system since I have never owned one in the past.  The reason I decided to try one is because I was always so bulky wearing six layers of clothing into the woods.  I recently had  bought another brand name set of mid weight layers and tried them on a hunting weekend where it was about 30 deg.  In my opinion they did not perform to the level I thought they should.  I immediately took them back to the store and did a little research.  Before my next hunting excursion, I went to my local department store and purchased the Rocky Mid-Weight system.  There was a couple of reasons I chose Rocky over the other brands.

  1. Cost (very inexpensive)
  2. 5 star reviews across the board
  3. comfort
  4. warmth
  5. design

I wore this system on my next hunting trip.  The temperatures were between 15 deg and 31 deg for 3 day straight.  I wore only the base layer system and my Scent Lok grey vertigo full season suit.  The suit is a lightweight bowhunter suit and this is all I wore on this trip.  When I first set out into the cold I thought I was going to freeze, It took about 3 hours of sitting still in the woods before I got cold at all.  I was comfortable, warm, and not bulked up at all.  I had a great 3 days of hunting and owe it all to the Rocky system.  I was really surprised at how well they preformed especially since they were about $75 cheaper than the previous set that I had bought.  They are also scent blocking with the  SIQ system which I found useful when the deer I seen were down wind at only 20 yards and never even knew I was there.  I would defiantly recommend this system to anyone who needs a mid weight base layer.  I am going to purchase the lightweight system for early deer season here in Michigan because of the performance of the Mid-Weights.
