  1. Revolver is about 5 minutes from my house, you need to go to one of their Saturday afternoon tastings, they have some really good beers that are not in stores. They have a stout (Mother's Little Fracker)that is really good, the Revolver Bock is better than Shiner. I think you can get the Bock at HEB now. Their brewmaster was the head brewmaster at Samuel Adams for decades, even seen him on a Sam Adams commercial. He was from Texas and wanted to come home. Brett, the owner before they sold out to Coors is also a Texas-Ex. CHIEF
  2. I've gotten to where I only do head shots on deer that I am not considering mounting, or I aim at the white spot under their chin if they are good enough for a European mount. If you hit them it kills them with no running after the shot, if you miss you miss completely (I guess, haven't missed yet). For long shots, I make a noise to get them to face me head on, to get a bit of forgiveness on bullet drop. After losing a couple in my younger years, this has worked well for me. CHIEF
  3. 1986, skied hard at Purgatory all day and was heading back to Durango. Pulled into The Needles convenient store and bought a sixer of plain old Michelob. Thirsty as hell, and I can still remember drinking the first one, it was ethereal. CHIEF
  4. I have an 8 foot tower/trailer built for a 4x6 blind without a blind on it currently, but only one. CHIEF
  5. Lol. If they suspended football players for street racing, back in the 80's when I was in school, there wouldn't have been enough players in all of Bosque County to field a football team. Before the internet, that's all we did for fun when we didn't have time to hunt, fish, fuck, or shoot guns. And in Lubbock, you don't have to worry about corners, or objects to hit, just slow down to under 120 and pull back on the road a couple of hundred yards and get back onto the road. CHIEF
  6. On younger kids, it means that no one has to stay home to watch the kids, if the kids are back at school. A lot of Surly has jobs where you can work from home, that isn't the real World reality of most folks. The reality for most of America is that they are a dual income family that has had at least one bread winner having to stay home for childcare, and helping with schoolwork. Having been off since March means any savings they had has been exhausted in the last six months. There is a lot of arrogance in the crowd that can afford for the wife or husband not having to work, or can work from home. Those in the real World have fucking bills to pay. What is worse, your 8 year old has a higher risk of getting COVID, or you get 4 months behind on your mortgage? There are some really tough choices having to be be made by families that need both incomes to make ends meet. CHIEF
  7. I'm torn on this game. Okie State shitting the bed isn't a good look for the conference, but Zach Smith's grandpa worked for my Dad, and I went to school with his mother. Zach and CHIEF Jr. are friends and talk occasionally. He is a great kid, would be a stellar win for him. CHIEF
  8. Wow, I guess I never really thought about it, Stevie Nicks is a year and half older than my mom, and I'm 52. She could be a great-grandma. My Dad is younger than every member of Pink Floyd except for David Gilmour. I probably should have posted this in the "High" thread. CHIEF
  9. This guy, he gets it. I picked the pretty one out of the litter. CHIEF
  10. These sonuvabitches are off the chain good. Mrs. CHIEF's sister turned us on to them. https://images.app.goo.gl/o67hKf9nkKhRKXkL8 CHIEF
  11. When Mrs. CHIEF does this I just say "well, you know what they say" and then just turn and walk off, I love the passive aggressive approach. CHIEF

    Fire Mike Yurcich

    OSU was a nail biter every year, it's an offensive shootout. Yurcich would pull it off with 2-3 stars. What do you think he is capable of with the talent and #1 recruiting class each year while here? CHIEF
  13. Labor Day 1983, back when the stripers were still really big in Whitney. Between four of us we landed over 10 stripers a piece over 20 lbs. The limits we kept all weighed between 22-24 lbs. per fish. CHIEF
  14. I have shut down my late Father's mobile blind company and I am in the process of selling off the inventory. I have sold all of the 5x7 blinds, but have some 4x6 blinds on 8 and 10 foot towers. I made sure and ran this to Immac before posting. This was an idea my Dad came up with when I still lived in Austin. Anytime we changed leases, the landowners want everything off in 72 hours. With me in Austin, and both of my uncles still working, he wanted blinds that he could go pick up himself. We also had times that we would set a blind and the spot just turned out to be not very good. In my estimation over the last 20 years, he had lost close to $6k on having to leave blinds and feeders on property that we couldn't get to within 72 hours, so this was his solution. All of these trailers are hand built by older oilfield workers that didn't want to travel anymore, the powder coated frames have a lifetime warranty. The blinds are pulled up by a 4000 lb. winch connected to a marine battery, which is connected to a 12v controlled solar panel, to prevent overcharging. There is also a voltage meter to tell if your battery is dead before you get to your lease, or are removing it from your lease. It has a hand built aluminum ladder to save weight. There are outriggers on each side, in the back that extend out to about 18 feet. These units aren't cheap, my base 4x6 on an 8 foot tower runs $9995 (but there will be a Surly discount) and run up to $11,250 for a 10 foot tower and camo Boss blind, but if you have a shop, or shed to store it in, it will last the rest of your life, and then some. The blinds we use are rugged enough to be pulled at highway speeds, I've pulled one over 90 mph before to get around some gravel trucks. We use https://www.bossgamesystems.com blinds on our premium models, and http://www.texasdeerstands.com on our base models. They are light enough to pulled by a UTV, or 4 wheeler. Feel free to PM me with any questions, or any interest. CHIEF
