    U.S. supreme Court case - Big decision ahead

    Each tribe decides their own rules for who can be a member. I would guess that only members can assert treaty rights, but that’s just a guess. If anyone with lineage can hunt, I’ll be ordering an Ancestry DNA test with overnight shipping.

    MT residents thoughts on Steve Bullock

    Don't you think what he's really doing is angling for a VP pick with this announcement? He can't possibly think he'll get enough attention in a field this crowded, especially after Jim Webb's performance as a moderate in 2016.

    Favorite NON-Premium Bullet

    I've never been impressed with the velocity of Core-Lokt ammo either. Clocks about 200 fps slow in my rifles. But to answer the question, I like Hornady ILs too.

    270 wsm ammo

    What caused your disappointment? Too much meat ruined? Bullets not penetrating enough?

    7mm WSM

    I think you can create a false shoulder on 300 WSM brass and then fireform, but I've never done it. I laid in a supply of federal ammo when it was cheap on closeout. I'm working my way through it, and when that is gone, I'll reload it.

    Hunting Stories

    A happy story: Not long after daylight, we spotted a forkie mule deer making his way through the sage brush, just on the edge of the rough country. My fiancé wanted to shoot him, so a stalk and a shot ensued. After the shot, the buck ran towards a creek and disappeared. At first, we couldn’t...

    Hunting Stories

    A sad story: During the summer, I started noticing something was wrong with my 10 year old Brittany. I couldn’t say exactly what, but I’d owned the dog for his whole life. He was my first real bird dog. We set out together for the unknown when I went to college. He slept on the bed every night...

    7mm WSM

    I didn't realize that comment was so offensive as to have others apologize on my behalf when I made it. Sorry Europe. It was more a commentary than a criticism directed at you, but it must have come out wrong.
