    Accuracy question

    As far as cleaning my gun for hunting purposes. Typically I will clean my gun really good before the hunt and go over every square inch (including checking the screws on the scope mount). Then I will go sight it in for the hunt and take it hunting. After the hunt I clean off the chunks and...

    Accuracy question

    I like to keep things simple at times. Your gun is doing just fine for shooting deer at 2-300 yards. Go whack one!!!!! Your barrel will change a bunch from 0-75 shots. I don't worry much about anything prior to that. Copper in the barrel isn't the worst thing. I had a gun that was...

    Recurve advice for elk.

    Well there are a bunch of ways to go on this topic. I have a few recurves that I've shot over the years. I'm a huge fan of Earl Hoyt and the bows he made. Used to hang out with Ann and Earl back in the day. Great people for sure. Spent a few days at his factory watching his guys make...

    I have a older buddy that is bringing his trailer up to "hang" out with me while I'm in the back country. He is basically going to be fishing while I hunt but we won't be doing much together. Cool part is he is bringing all my gear/food up there and I'm going to fly up so I can get in shape...

    I'm a big fan of not telling the world. I've lost hunting spots because others knew that I hunted in that spot and did well. I'm not sure about everyone else but I've got a huge time investment. Don't really want to say how I've spent my time but it is way more elaborate than google earth...

    Honestly I think you would have better luck asking these guys if you could take their wife on a date in their pick up truck than getting them to give up what unit. I haven't even stepped foot in one of these units and can't even begin to tell you the amount of time and money I've spent...

    Go find the broomed off ram that dropped it and put a bullet in the side of him. Answer is easy. Execution seems to be a bit challenging at times.

    Mountain Goat field judging

    I would have asked him to help me carry this off the hill once I'm done cleaning it........help is help

    Mountain Goat field judging

    Tell everybody that you shot a monster. I don't have a single friend that would know the difference. I think great hair would really make the goat too. Hair is more important than the horns........if you ask my wife.

    So what would have do different now for the hunt since you have done a scouting trip? Was it tougher and rougher? different gear? Train harder? Food, Water issues? camp fires? Trails good? I'm heading in on Sept 7th and hoping to learn a bit from your adventure. Thanks

    Beginners luck for sure. Though the one thing I've noticed is the guys that actually go into the field and work at it have more "luck" than the keyboard commando's. We've all had beginners luck and I will always be happy to get the luck on my side when I can. I've had plenty of times where...

    Can we talk about underwear?

    The answer to the OP question is No guys can't talk about underwear without going down a ton of rabbit holes and making all sorts of comments. That is why I go commando!!!!!!!!!

    Elevation and shooting question

    If you are going to shoot 400 yards and under then have at it. I would think about putting the elevation at 5000 feet and split the difference. You can just use one dial. If you want to shoot past 500 yards then you are going to need 2 different turrets for those applications. Most of...

    Anybody use 90 grain ELDX in .243?

    I was shooting the 6.5 140 VLD's out of my 6.5 X 284. Shot a coues deer at 406 yards right on the crease and half way up the deer. Deer got drunk fell over. When we got to the deer (15 minutes) it was still very much alive and took off down the hill on a dead run. Took another shot to...

    Anybody use 90 grain ELDX in .243?

    1800-2200 fps depending on distance. I haven't shot anything up close with the ELDM bullets to see if they perform like the BT bullet or not at those ranges. I was just expecting to have different results. Maybe my expectations are off. My buddies buck was shot at about 250 yards with...

    Anybody use 90 grain ELDX in .243?

    I loved the accuracy. I shot 2 coues deer in Mexico this past January and both animals took multiple shots to kill. I had one bullet where literally all the copper was just under the skin and didn't penetrate more than an inch. The lead did penetrate but it wasn't really deep. I hit one...

    Moving to a one gun battery (maybe)

    Wise man has one gun and shoots it well. I normally shoot a 6.5 X 284 that I built. Before this gun I had a .243 that I used all the time but that is now more of a truck gun in case a yote decides to commit suicide. thought I'm working on filling up my second safe.......but that...

    Anybody use 90 grain ELDX in .243?

    I also would like to know about the ELD - X in .243. I'm a huge fan of the 90 grain nosler ballistictip. That bullet has done great for us over the years. Fast expanding and most animals don't take 1 step. Never lost an animal shot with the 90 ballistictip. Even shot a big tom lion...

    Weight

    Don't know your exact circumstances but depending on your level of fitness I would start really, really slow. You have a ton of time to get ready for the hunt. I would start off going to the gym 3-4 days a week and then adding a day or two more as time goes on. Then once you have a really...
