    It's time to do away with landowner tags enough is enough

    Oh boy, Oregon for 2020 is going to allow a general season OTC tags for cow elk on private land in certain units above objective. All you need is permission to hunt on the private property. I guess its arrogance if I allow hunters ( for me its first time hunters or youth) to come out and hunt on...

    Suppressor on Hunting Rifle

    I guess it depends where you hunt. Personally I don't understand them for hunting. Bench, and recreational shooting sure. In real life hunting situations out west, I am talking ones where you actually hunt which requires 4-5 miles a day up and down canyons and through the trees, the last thing...

    How much money should you spend on new gear?

    I started off years ago buying the best gear I could afford every year after hunting season was over and the sales started. There were times I was getting 60-70% off. While not all of was top notch gear it was good. To me boots were the one to splurge on first. Fast forward 30 years and better...

    Federal bullet in 270 wsm

    Its the greatest round ever made for the 270WSM. Federal quit loading it. I have 2 boxes left and continue to search for someone selling them. Nosler loads a 140 AB but not as hot as the Federal. The best thing I can figure is for you to sell me yours so at least one of us is happy.

    Good taxidermist for lion Colorado?

    It is. Really a very rare cat. He's almost 35 lbs with full spots. Usually as they get older and bigger they lose spots and kinda go grey.

    black bear shot placement

    Bears are funny.Some are really pissed and tough and some just roll over and die. Kinda like a big bull elk. Ideally you need to break down a bear, and bust his shoulder or preferably both. I have seen bears go along ways with a heart, lung shot. Very hard to trail because they bleed so little...
