Congrats!  When I picked up the Manchester tassel loafer I had the same thought, it was the only loafer at the time that fit my foot without heel slippage. It didn't take long to figure how and when to wear them and I find myself reaching for them often in the summer. I do agree that burgundy and dark brown work better than walnut in matching much of what I wear to work. However the "cure" for that is more pants in lighter colors, which I have done. I have never worn any...
Yeah they both looked pretty much the same in the beginning, I wear the heck out of them. First I use Saphir Renovateur and go around the whole shoe\boot with a thin coat rubbing it in well. Then immediately hit it with a wet rag, not damp like doing a normal Mac method but dripping wet. Then quickly go all around the boot with a brush spreading the water out well. And keep going until it is dry then keep brushing but slow down and do sections. The toe area took quite a...
Congrats! And FTFY  For my walnut, cappuccino and 744's I do not use any product with color of any type and do not use any wax at all. At most once in a great while I use Reno to help level and even the color out. IME As mentioned just using the Mac method and time will work no matter how bad it is. I don't own a deer bone, well for shell use anyhow. Plenty of deer racks in an old seabag and on the wall LOL. Someday might get one for shell though I have managed without one. 
 I use the Sportsman bag for exactly that, a range bag. It holds 6 boxes of 12 ga. easily plus all the other "stuff". Works out perfectly for me.
A few pictures from the Boundary Water Canoe Area Wilderness Area in February of this year. No motor vehicles allowed including snowmobiles so dogsled team is a good way to get around. No bugs that time of year either...   The deer are not used to seeing people and while are not tame, they are curious about humans more times than not. This guy was looking in the window of the cabin and just as I grabbed the camera to take a picture the dog jumped up to see what I was...
We have seen red foxes increase in numbers also, unfortunately coyotes too. In the arrowhead region there are a large number of red foxes which considering the habit is mainly forest is a bit surprising it used to be grey fox habit. Very few coyotes there but the wolves are out of control and the two do not coexist well.   Hunting grouse in the fall always makes me a little nervous with the Toller. The Nova Scotia Duck Toller was breed to look like a red fox and mine...
Thanks for posting that Lefty. I have a pair of his Meindl boots. While I also have a pair of gore-tex gaiters I seldom wear them and wear brush pants instead. Obviously not deer hunting here but ruff grouse hunting instead.   NY State had more deer per square mile than any other State in the country in the 70's until the early 80's. I took this buck in Chemung County in the mid 80's and he made the record book.   I used to travel across the county hunting deer...
Oh you will be fine at Horse and Hunt, or pretty much any Sporting Clays course. One of the things I enjoy about SC over other shotgun sports venues is that most shooters are there to have fun and are generally very helpful. I would encourage you to try H&H, you will see many others that are just starting out too. We all had to start some place at one time  50% out first time out with a pump is not bad at all! I grew up was raised shooting pumps, Ithaca 37's and 870's. I...
As I would be also, those look fantastic! Congrats on your new shell Leeds.
Thanks. Horse and Hunt is worth checking out IMO. They have 5 courses, the clubhouse burned down this spring and the new one is supposed to be completed soon. They have 2 packages available on groupon right now, the third one is sold out. They are good for 1 year but you can't use them on the weekends in Sept. and Oct. That is when they get swamped with all the hunters that go out once a year right before hunting season to shoot a round of clays and call it good. Lunch is...
