    94 Bears killed on opening day in NJ

    Ocean County Decoy and Gunning Show

    I remember as a kid whenever my father or his friends or relatives went hunting they always called it gunning. Must have been the term in use by that generation and before, haven’t heard it used lately.

    Alternative to pepper spray

    Returning from Yellowstone and within 10 miles of my cabin 2 hunters were attacked by a grizzly in Montana and the bear spray chased it of. Has a range of 60 feet and if it works on grizzlies, people should be real easy. Don’t know about the legality, but if in the pines you could always claim...

    Housing at N.J. blueberry farms was approved despite fire safety and sewage violations

    Some of the issues were due to poor septic systems. These are valid complaints and should be addressed to prevent further contamination of the ground waters.

    Warm, warmer, hot.

    Not to start a political discussion, but a large number of agencies and scientists disagree with the hysteria being spread by the global warming (now relabeled as climate change) crowd. Add to this the numerous times that NASA and other agencies have been caught with fudging the data and there...

    Tesla

    I agree that electric cars are the future. And if they could get the price point down while also improving battery capacity to allow 500 mile runs between charges and then have it charge in under 10 minutes with charging stations as common as today’s gas stations, I would consider one.

    Why would there be a stripped line at that part of 206? Should be a solid line for no passing!

    Pine Barren History Shorts

    When ever I read old stories like this, I am always impressed by the writing style. Very accurate, precise and enjoyable to read. Much better than the writing skills found in most of today’s press. These same skills are often present in old letters written by civil war soldiers who usually ended...

    Buzby's is up for sale.....

    The house is well built and solid, but lacking in upgrades other than the windows have been replaced. The kitchen is on the second floor and small and pretty basic. The bath on the second floor is OK, but nothing fancy. The rooms are small with the exception of the room on the first floor that...

    Buzby's is up for sale.....

    I was there this morning and the coffee table was sold at 11am for $350. I spent $20 on a few things and their was a steady line of people waiting to pay for items when I left at 11:30. After walking through the whole house I can see why they lowered the price from $540k.

    Cabin Camping

    Bass River State Forest rents Cabins, Shelters and lean-tos. Only the Cabins have a bathroom and a kitchen and electric. These aren’t the fanciest or best kept cabins, but if you don’t mind roughing it, you will be away from the bugs and out of the rain. There are also larger cabins along side...
