  1. Verify the clutch pedal is all the way up by pulling up with your foot
  2. I took a bunch of pictures. I need to sort through all and pick the better ones. This buck is the one his cousin couldn't pull a shot quickly enough the day before so Peter shot the second buck that came out. The advantage we had was wind was opposite side and we access a different stand and were closer (97 yards) . Also this buck heard a noise and looked at us in the stand and stopped and allowed him the time to calm down and squeeze the shot off . It was a perfect shot
  3. M&W gave more mechanical advantage than this other kind I have from a parts tractor. M&W is 2 1/8" CTC as mentioned, the stamped one is 1 7/8" CTC Inlaws have a M uncle George bought new in '50 . They added behlen ps, m&w hand clutch, valves for 2 remotes , it had a power pack put in at some point according to a neighbor along with the clutch extension. It had a pipe loader and it had a hay loader wooden slat bucket that they made loose hay with early on . Uncle George went to IH in Hinsdale among other places as an engineer from 56 to 81 . That generation is not with us any more so I won't learn more than I have already about it
  4. You have to push it the whole stroke of the pedal. It actually pushes it less than without the helper but it adds mechanical advantage. If you use a clutch with more or heavier springs this saves your leg especially with a loader . I think I have a M&W and another brand in the basement to put on a future project
  5. Nice to hear you had no hauling issues. A visit with dot would have been a nightmare although it looks like a safe way to haul it to me. On our chopper they have hauled it by letting it down on blocks
  6. Thomas got one this morning, his biggest so far.
  7. Congratulations to your son. We had 5 some doe before church and then I sat out by myself as none of the kids wanted to go out in the afternoon. I saw 5 and they were moving when they came in, ate for ten minutes and ran away again. I wonder if there was a coyote I didn't see
  8. Hours don't scare me. Low hour hasn't proven itself yet ....
  9. Out this morning saw 8 doe . Nephew Peter got this one after a bigger one made it through the shooting lane too quickly for him. Should be out after I get home from church
  10. My neighbors missed a bear (4 shots) , I saw nothing this morning, 3 bucks 6 doe and 4 Coyote tonight. Missed two shots at the coyotes at 325 yards . I passed the bucks I saw bigger 8 was 100" I saw. One of the yotes ran over the hill and my cousin missed it at 160 so we had a poor day for getting anything . Picked food plot corn yesterday with my 1PR picker My afternoon view from+26' up
  11. I'd love to buy it for that price
  12. Usually get raided by my cousins and others . Been a tradition, have some regular food along also
