Two deer hunts on successive weekends, starting tomorrow...

The first in Coryell County on a beautiful piece of land; mesa, many oaks, 40 acre field, non-stop spring, and appropriately run-down farm house with top-flight well water. Possible bonus: the second half of dove season starts today, so if I get a deer early, it's off to the fields, or snap shooting through the mesa!

The second in upper Uvalde County is along the Nueces River. May have a chance at an axis deer. Large, recently-built lodge with no internet connections or T.V. service; only old videos for the screen. If turkey are about, same applies to them! Should be a good Christmas.

GLITCH: unable to post reply...

Blank screen or many "Notice: use of undefined content..."

Followed by:

"Warning: not safe relying on time zone settings". An endless list.

Has this been cleared by 3:20 CST? Thanks

Best wishes to the progressive 2A defenders in DU...

...and in this group. I have seen from "our side" an increase in OPs in GD referencing guns, and this is a good thing. By now, posters here probably realize that, IMO, the GD Forum is pretty much wide-open to gun postings. Again, IMO, more of the quality OPs posted here would contribute more fully if posted in GD.

NOTE: From communications with two Hosts in GD, it would appear that the threshhold for allowing the gun "exception" to be in effect is when an example of the new, ill-defined "mass shooting" is in effect. Since that hazy definition can be met any number of ways, and anti-2A news aggregators have become tantamount to a major news outlet stamp-of-approval, gun postings now seem full-time. One host has told me in confidence that a power struggle has resulted in essentially a situation where one (1) person can overrule the others when most hosts favor a lock due to SOP violation; this is supposedly based on some kind of "consensus" process.

I POST THIS HERE as a way to better advance gun control and Second Amendment issues. If the process has materially changed, it is in the best interests of All in these debates to know where to post. If anyone -- including Hosts in GD -- wish to weigh in with corrections and questions, please do so. Greater clarity and fair play should guide everyone in DU.
