    Giving blood-hiking performance!

    Hi, I give blood regularly, and I did so a few days before going out hunting. So I’m climbing the “mountain of death” (I hate it so but you go where the animals are) and 3/4 of the way up I’m just hitting a wall! Not the normal “this sucks why am I doing this” but just flat bonked and blah...

    Idaho Hells Canyon archery 2022

    I LOVE this photo..It will bring you to “Religion” in short order. Nothing is as mentally debilitating as looking at your GPS and realizing camp is on the other side of that after busting your butt all day. Hells Canyon is no joke. You all spending more than 3 days chasing animals is...

    Last minute Jitters

    Lol...not admitting which one of my friends did this...bring ammo-the correct ammo for your gun... Luckily I came into camp a day late and could pick some up before I left. 😁😂😂😂😂

    Match grade barrels, Sako Versus Kimber

    Well, I do have the bigger power scopes on my Sako’s. Shoot the first shot, dial up the power and aim for that hole. If it’s good ammo, you might be surprised on the outcome. 😉

    Match grade barrels, Sako Versus Kimber

    One of the things I learned from competition shooting is your rifle/shotgun should be fitted to you. (By someone who is qualified) Will do wonders for your accuracy.

    Match grade barrels, Sako Versus Kimber

    I have to agree. I love the 14” lop on all my Sako’s. How you guys can shoot “short” rifles is beyond me... 😁

    Match grade barrels, Sako Versus Kimber

    I have a soft spot for Sako’s myself. (I have a number of Sako’s with my fav being the finnlight 75 300 wsm) It’s a “choice” as modifications/changes are not as simple like other rifles (Tikka’s have all the aftermarket goodies available just like Remington’s) My Sako’s tend to be picky in...

    The mysterious case of the missing 30/06 ammunition.

    Oh that’s the story. Those creedmoor folks are wildly outta control. Though I wouldn’t mind a 300 PRC. It just sounds so sexy.

    The mysterious case of the missing 30/06 ammunition.

    Here...I just looked up 165 grain for 30-06. You can get less expensive as well...I just went for the “good stuff” It costs $10 for shipping but you get what you want. Or you can keep searching and praying that the rest of us with 30-06’s don’t buy the ammo before you get some. 😊

    McCall B tag going solo

    Well, if you want to elk hunt and this is your tag-this is the script your going to have to follow. Time to work out hard, make sure you have a good back pack and learn how to bone out meat. Oh, and be honest with yourself. If your not physically and mentally ready for that country ..hunt...

    Idaho Boise River B Tag (Unit 39)

    Elk season in places up there is a war zone next to roads. Locals have it figured out. Horses/camping in back country is a better option if you can find someone with horses. Good luck.

    McCall B tag going solo

    Be in shape. It’s deceptive up there, it steeper and brushier in areas and that’s where they are. The elk are in pockets..cover lots of ground, look for sign, and go slow/quiet. I literally crapped my pants when I was standing looking down at my GPS and unbeknownst to me the elk herd (I was...

    The mysterious case of the missing 30/06 ammunition.

    On line seems to be the only way to consistently find the ammo. Try Ammoseek as there seems to quite a selection. JP
