New here but have been muzzleloading for† 40 years. Mostly with a flintlock. I have also built all of my rifles from scratch, as in parts sets using in cut stocks.(as in not precarved)

We as in my family used to do the pre 1840 thing for over 20 years but now all the kids are out of the house and having some health issues we don't do it anymore. The wife likes to sleep in the bed at home now days. I still do some local shoots here in central NY but just out and back in a day. Being 66 and also heading for an old 67 (heart surgery) I'm glad to be home at night also.

Glad to have you here.†
What big town are you close to?

I lived in Rochester back in the '60s and saw a lot of the Finger Lakes area.

I think the closest I got to there was around Auburn. Pretty country.

WELCOME Jim, you'll find for most part these guys whether new or old to the site are easy to get along with. A few hard asses†we all picked on have moved on to greener pastures I hope and are happy there. Where in NY are you, I'm from PA and use to hunt†several of the countries in mid NY.

I'm to the point that the ground seems a little less forgiving every time I sleep or fall on it.†Anymore I get my best†rest at home.†I started this way of life in 1955, have spent a load of bucks on the sport and should have my butt kicked at that time by my father and went a different direction. It's to late now so like you we are stuck between a rock and a hard spot - sleep on the ground or a soft bed.....

WELCOME

Welcome!
Some of us share your issues with health limitations and age, but are determined to keep up with our muzzleloading activities as much as possible. It is a fine group here and I am proud to be part of it.

I'm only about an hour from you. I'm between the city of Binghamton & the PA line.... about 4 miles from PA.

I started with muzzleloaders in 1974 & hunted with them off & on for several years, slowly becoming more hooked each year.

Welcome Jim,
Glad to have you here. I share some of your health issues. Being 70yo I shoot 4 and 5 times a week weather permitting. Walking down range to setup my targets gives me some exercise. I am in the Niagara Falls area but not in the city, I have a country home on a nice piece of land that allows me to shoot hand guns in the back yard.

I also live in the country but don't have enough room to shoot here, only 2 acres but more road front than depth. I do however boarder some state land that I can use to do some shooting.

I've spent quite a bit of time working in the Dushore area. I used to work in the natural gas drilling/fracking business. Prior to that, at one time I used to pick up cows from farms down around there.

Protrucker, I know someone who is currently working in the natural gas drilling business in PA.† I've seen the drilling rigs and many of them are tucked away high up into the mountains.† Amazing What a Face how far technology allows them to drill underground.† The companies seem to hire a lot of truckers to transport cooling water to the rigs.† The water tanker trucks I saw always seemed to constantly be going up and down the mountain.

The trucks may be carrying the components for the drilling fluids, at least during the few weeks that are required for drilling the well. The spent drilling fluids are placed in containment ponds which ultimately are emptied into trucks to be taken for disposal.
Once the well is drilled, then many of the trucks are carrying "produced water" from the new wells to "re-injection wells". Most oil and gas wells contain water along with the product materials. I've been at some wells that produce 95% water and 5% gas, although new wells tend to contain a more gas and less water. That "produced water" must be disposed of and often is re-injected to deep aquifers in the subsurface. The produced water can't just be dumped in local waterways because it is contaminated with the oil or gas hydrocarbons and often with high levels of salt and other contaminants.

Carl Walker of GRRW has one of his sons with experience in the oil fields using both methods used today for drilling wells (oil business is a big part of the jobs in Roosevelt UT). Car's son Gary is now in the southwestern part of PA as an adviser on drilling horizontal drilling (new to the area). This type of drilling has brought jobs to several of the eastern states.

Horizontal and vertical drilling are two different drilling techniques used to explore and develop oil and natural gas properties. Horizontal drilling has gained market share over the last few years and is now the dominant form of drilling in the United States.

For you guys, Dushore is a borough in Sullivan County, Pennsylvania,†with a†population was 608 at the 2010 census. Good hunting for some, have been there several times back in the 60's, never had any luck myself, too many hunters.

Buck', I'm very fortunate to have access to a hunting camp which owns historic farmland that abuts State Forest Lands in that area.† †Otherwise, yes...hunting pressure can be tense on public lands in that region of the state.† Double-digit buck tines always a possibility though for newcomers.

That's right RonC.† Any discharge with contaminates could only be discharged if it went through a treatment process which meets state discharge standards to waterways.
