    Idaho Region 6 deer/elk

    Thanks for asking. Sometime after I'd done all the research and decided to hunt Idaho, someone I know who's an experienced hunter talked me into going to another area of Idaho where he had some acquaintances who knew the area very well. We got there and saw absolutely no sign whatsoever. Didn't...

    Spotting Scope Help

    For the record Kowa, Meopta, Zeiss, Swaro, Leica, are the choices I'm going to winnow out. It would be really helpful if there were some shop here locally where once could try these out, but there doesn't appear to be one in Vegas. We'll be going through Norther Nevada, Idaho, MT, WY and CO, if...

    Spotting Scope Help

    Found the scope I thought was misplaced in back of the folding seat of my newish pickup. Rolled under there after our last range outing and never thought to look there. Another dumb lesson learned. Still gonna get another scope though as I never did like it much. The resolution on it stinks...

    Spotting Scope Help

    As I think about this a bit more, it's dawned on me that what I need is something that will enable me to see detailed resolution at the furthest distance I can afford. Maybe I need to consider something that might be a bit more expensive to get the quality I'm after.

    Nevada 101-109

    Pretty much....really, that's not such a bad idea. My daughter is in town this weekend so we'll all pile in the truck and head down there and get some tix. I'll let you know how it turns out....haha!

    Spotting Scope Help

    My scope got misplaced, as in I think it got lifted. So now, I need to pick out another one. Since I wasn't really happy with the performance of the Vortex Diamondback I'm going to purchase something better in quality/value. Question is, what might be the best value for a $1,000 scope?

    Nevada 101-109

    Thanks! We're thrilled of course and now, because my boy was named as party leader, I scored an antlered mulie tag myself! If that wasn't enough, the next morning NDOW sent me yet another email letting me know I'd been awarded a alternate tag for an "antlers longer than ears" speedgoat!! WTH...

    Mossberg Patriot 300WM

    After putting on a bolt on break, with a decent bipod, took this rifle to the range today. It is a laser beam at 400 yards, no joke. The break makes it pretty easy to shoot, almost like a 243. My 12 year old has been begging me to shoot it and after I felt what it was like with the break on it...

    10/22 scope?

    Ended up topping it with a Nikon Buckmaster off amazon for $84.....took it to the range today and, after a fair bit of effort, zeroed it to 100 yards. Nice scope for the money, glass is pretty clear, has a BDC, held zero.

    Sleeeeeep!

    My SSA record says I been working since 1970, 49 years ago so out of habit I wake up 4:30-5:00 am most every day without an alarm unless there was some extraordinary events that kept me up for like an entire day. Not sure what it's gonna be like when I finally hang up my cleats.

    10/22 scope?

    Ha! Actually, the scope is for me to shoot his gun!! My eyes, welll, they're not what they used to be is all I can say.

    10/22 scope?

    I realize there are tons of scope posts here on HT, some of them are even mine. My boy just bought a 10/22 and we would like to ask those who have the 10/22 and have decided to top it with a scope to let me know what you used. There's just to many choices out there and it would be great to...

    Mossberg Patriot 300WM

    I'm thinking on getting Boyds to replace the one it sold with but I'm also thinking it might just sell the rifle and build the one I really want or I might give it to my boy. Decisions, decisions.
