Maryland Gun Carry Permit lifted, you dont need a reason to arm yourself.

I am sure that we are all aware of the tragedy that happened recently in Aurora, Colorado.  This has brought about some very heated debate on guns and the right to arm yourself.

U.S. District Court Judge Benson Everett Legg on Monday lifted the stay on his March ruling, although it looks like Democrats will be appealing the decision in hopes to delay the orders enforcement.  As of now the order will go into effect on Aug 7th.

What are your thoughts?

It’s Hot!

I think we can all agree that it has been hot out there this summer!  As I have been out checking cameras, putting out minerals or hanging tree stands I cant help but notice the heat and how miserable it is.  Having said that, I then go jump in the truck and blast the AC ending my misery fairly quickly.  Unfortunately, the deer and other wildlife don’t have that ability…top of the food chain I suppose.  Anyway, here are 2 things I have come across…something to think about as you are in your spots!  Stay cool!
