November 14th – Thursday - Studying the topo maps and using Google Earth...I have high hope for the Stevenson land...I think it's going to be really good!
November 14th – Thursday - It seems impossible to find powder and primers for reloading. I've checked everywhere locally and online....none to be had. Bad deal!

November 9th (PM) – Saturday - Austin and I went squirrel hunting on the farm after the shooting session.
November 9th (PM) – Saturday - Austin and I shot both muzzleloaders to make sure they were still sighted in. Also, did the same with the Remington 700 270Win, Remington Sendero 7mm Mag and Remington 7mm-08 that we custom built. Everything shot good.

November 8th (AM) – Friday - Stopped by Gander Mountain for some shopping. Can't find any reloading supplies anywhere! No powder or primers to be had. I stopped by Wiley Outdoor Sports and same story. Called several places...no luck. Went on line to Graf & Sons and Midway USA...out of everything and no hope in sight. I think everyone is beefing up their arsenal!

November 7th – Put a new air filter on the Honda Rubicon. I change the oil every fall and get it ready for the season. It's about to hit 2,000 miles on it. Got it new in 2006. I've got a Honda 300 4x4 that I bought new in 1996. Honda makes some good stuff. I'd like a get a Yamaha Rhino soon!
