Has anyone used this for backpacking food prep?
$2200 is well out of my price range for a "food maker" but if I hit the mini lottery I imagine this would be great to have.
I can think of some great recipes I would love to have in the...
Had the same plan as you back in 2017...planned to backpack for 7 days with 2 other people into the Frank Church for deer and elk. Camped at the trailhead the night before and it snowed 1.5 feet of snow overnight. We tried to day hunt the area but all the game tracks were leading in a straight...
Really depends how far down the rabbit hole you want to go... If you are shooting factory ammo less than 500yds, you probably will not notice a big difference in accuracy.
If you are an extreme long range shooter and hunt at longer than "normal" ranges, most shooters are using CNC machined...
I just booked a unguided Axis and Mouflon sheep hunt on Lanai. I was curious if anyone here has first hand experience shipping game meat back into the lower 48 states from Hawaii?
I frequently ship deer meat from NY to CA on Southwest Airlines but was wondering if there's an easy way...
its been awhile since I loaded my 7mm Rem Mag hot but was your bolt lift heavy when you extracted the brass after firing? I had a problem with a few rounds cracking above the belt after 3-5 firings and lowered my powder charge and switched to a neck sizer...then bought a 280AI.
Thanks for the advice everyone. My options for an optics kit would be either:
10x42 Viper HD/ Razor 85mm spotter/ Zeiss 15x56 Conquest
10x42 Viper HD/ 12x50 Lecia Ultravid HD (for a lot more money) / Razor 85 spotter. (use the Viper's for backups in the truck)
thoughts on those?

I entered the western draw system in 2017 with the hope of drawing at least 1 big game tag in addition to filling the freezer with OTC tags. Here is what I try to make my hunting season look like: (NV resident)

I currently shoot a Mathews at 75lbs with a 635 grain arrow set up moving at 265fps....if I had to re-do it, Id go with a 50gr outsert over the 100gn I have and maybe a lighter arrow gpi... I do like the heavier set up for tuning and having a quieter bow at the shot.
