    Wild game consumed in your home

    Family of four, eat on average 1 elk, 1 mule deer buck, and 2 WT/MD doe each year. Raise our own beef, but once or twice a year will buy Wagyu steak/tri tip/brisket. Chicken is the only meat we buy at the store. Luckily we have had salmon, halibut, cod, and rockfish the past few years as well...

    Worst thing you've forgotten before a big hunt trip?

    Left my clothes bag sitting on my bed a few years ago. Was hunting for a week in borrowed clothing at camp. Couldn't believe, especially since I double checked to make sure my boots were in the cab before I left the house.

    Blacks Creek Cure Lumbar Pack

    I bought my wife one, she likes it, although for packing elk she wants to get a frame pack instead. We use a now discontinued pack from LL Bean for packing meat. The Cure Pack is good for packing smaller game like antelope and deer. Works great as a day pack though!

    Mystery Ranch or Stone Glacier

    I flew to Bozeman a couple weeks ago and went to Stone Glacier HQ and Mystery Ranch HQ. Mystery Ranch sent me to Schnee's in Downtown Bozeman because they are revamping their showroom. I tried on both companies packs and I will be going with a Stone Glacier Xcurve frame. It was the most...

    Help!! Vortex viper 4-12x40

    Recheck your torque on your rings. Vortex scopes are very sensitive to being torqued over specs when adjusting for elevation. I had the same issues a few years ago on my wifes' rifle and it was fixed by retorquing to correct specs.
