  1. Program/Project Manager with Tech and Public Sector Experience

    I've been working in program and project management for 5 years since getting my Masters of Public Administration in 2012 from Northeastern. I'm looking for a new position that will challenge me mentally and have good prospects for growth. I've managed both technical projects (Successful...
  2. DIY Skinning and Butchering Rack Plans?

    Putting the cart WAY before the horse here: I'm getting ready for deer season (11/27 can't come soon enough for me!) and am deciding to be an optimist. I want to build a rack on which to attach my gambrel for hoisting deer so I can do my own skinning and butchery. I haven't found any...
  3. Suggestions for Single Stack 1911 Mags for USPSA?

    I'm hoping to shoot single stack in USPSA next year and am looking for suggestions as to brands for magazines. I have a couple inexpensive 8 rounders (Chip McCormick, I think), but I notice they pinch the hell out of my palm when I drive them into the mag well. Anyone have suggestions? Or...
  4. Shotgun season online deer check?

    Just saw this in the Mass Wildlife email blast: "Deer hunters may now report their harvest online during the 2nd week of shotgun season. Deer must still be checked at a physical check station during the 1st week so biologists can collect important data." That's cool. Too bad I'm hunting the...
  5. Buying My First Treestand

    Hi, folks. I'm buying myself my first treestand ever next month. I've got a budget of about $250. I've already obtained a Tree Spider Safety Line, Climbing Belt and Tree Strap. I just ordered a HSS Harness (They're way marked down on Amazon right now). I'm torn between getting a ladder...
  6. WTS WTS/WTT Badlands Stalker Daypack NIB

    I got two of these through Huntvault this month. I need only one, so the other one gets sold! The pack is sold NIB. Great pack, spot for your hydration bladder, lots of space, very quiet. Price is $125 OBRO. Trades/partial trades (Firearms (e.g. M&P Shield with trigger job) accepted...
  7. Anyone want to come on a podcast and talk hunting, fishing and gear?

    (Mods, please delete this if it's a no-no) I've been recruited to do a weekly hunting and gear podcast on a network called "Change Your POV" (www.changeyourpov.com). The network is owned by a couple of veterans who started it to talk about issues facing transitioning veterans and has grown...
  8. Hopping and Bogastow Brooks in Holliston

    I was looking on Mass.gov/trout and noticed that Hopping and Bogastow Brooks are stocked with trout, but I've looked the length of them and cannot find any public access to them that doesn't involve trespassing on powerline right of ways. In driving around, they all seem to be posted "No...
  9. 2017 Fishing/Ice Fishing Thread

    Anyone having any luck so far? I snuck out on Monday night in the snow/sleet/rain/grossness to hit Dug Pond in Natick with my fly kit. Few nibbles but nothing to pull in. It's been too warm for ice in the neck of the woods, so nobody is ice fishing.
  10. Traditions Rifle Kits?

    Has anyone ever put one of these together? https://www.traditionsfirearms.com/category/Rifle-Kits I like the idea of doing it myself and need a longer project for the winter when my hands are tired of tying flies. Thinking about next winter for deer.
  11. Anyone ever done any fishing on the Yukon River?

    Hey, folks. The wife and I are going on a trip to Whitehorse, Yukon Territory in early September. It's our last trip before starting a family. We're planning on hiking, camping, horseback riding, hoping for some northern lights, too. The place where we're staying is about half a mile...
  12. Solunar Calendar and Fishing

    Hey, folks. I've hit a dry spell at my fishing hole and am desperately casting (ha!) around for a slump buster (I've got one fish in the past three or four visits). Does anyone put stock in the solunar calendar for fishing? I'm given to understand that the position and phase of the moon can...
  13. Wednesday Fishing Trip

    I have to use a day of vacation or lose it at the end of the month, so I'm heading fishing tomorrow morning. I have about five hours to go fish somewhere before I have to head back to Framingham to get the goddamn raccoon removed from under my roof. Fly or spin/casting are options. Hive mind...
  14. Help Me Help Combat Veterans

    Let me preface this by saying I hate asking for things, but I'm going to ask for something anyways because this is important. I started doing Spartan Races last year to challenge and better myself. I ran a very muddy Spartan Sprint in Barre in August of '15 and a cold one at Fenway Park a few...
  15. WTS Aquaz WADERTEK V chest wader (LARGE) - $160

    I bought these for fly fishing but don't really like the fit. I'm "spatially enhanced" across the gut and these bind too much for me. Worn once. No leaks or tears. They're supposed to be for the following measurements: Inseam: 32 to 33 Girth (The part that I'm too fat for): 41-43...
  16. AR15 Question: Carbine length FIXED stock - Any modification needed to comply w AWB?

    Please forgive me if this question has been posted before. I did search with NES' tool and couldn't find anything. If it HAS been posted before, I accept your mockery and will cut off a pinkie to show contrition. I promise, should the question already have been asked and answered, the...
  17. Speer Gold Dot 9mm +p

    Has anyone seen a store in the Metro West selling either Gold Dot 9mm +p in 124 gr or 147gr? I've seen one box in the past two years. (Apologies if there's a thread on this somewhere. I tried NES search and didn't come up with anything recent).
  18. 2016 Fishing/Ice Fishing Thread

    New year, new thread. Anyone still getting out? I spent a couple happy hours on Christmas Eve chasing bass. No luck but a couple nibbles. I moved spots after about an hour and, of course, a bass jumped clear out of the water right where I was casting at my recently abandoned spot.
  19. Like coffee? Want to help veterans? Read this

    Hi, NES'ers. I've a friend named Michael. He was in the USMC for 8 years and deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan multiple times. He is, without a doubt, one of my favorite people on the planet. He's loud, he's outspoken, funny as hell, loves guns and has dedicated his life to serving our country...
  20. Fishing Lake Murray, SC

    I know this is Northeast Shooters, but I also know we have many well traveled anglers here. I'm going to be spending a week on Lake Murray, SC with my in-laws around Labor Day. Knowing I'll need a few minutes of peace and quiet (my mother in law is a five foot nothing Italian from Beverly who's...
