    Bison Calber

    I've got a Winter Bison tag for Northern Arizona. I am looking to use my .300 WinMag with 180g TTSX or 165g Nosler Accubonds. Does this sound like a reasonable caliber and bullet choice for Bison? Do I need to go bigger, say a 200g bullet? Thoughts from the group would be appreciated.

    The Mossback's Survive

    Here in AZ, we have a late season hunt that runs from mid December to the end of January. The tags for the area are OTC. I didn't buy one this year because it's a new area for me and I'd rather scout thoroughly before venturing out on a hunt. While scouting I found a water hole that's not on...

    AZ Unit 15A

    Unit 15A seems to be a unit that only allows limited hunting. Youth hunts, archery only for some species, etc. Am I missing something, or is there broader hunting available in this unit?

    Remington UMC Ammo, 300 BLK

    Hey All, Just came back from the range after the initial firing of my newly built 300 BLK. Found something I've never experienced before in 40 years of shooting. A full 70% of the rounds had a complete primer ejection on firing. For the initial test fire, I was using Remington UMC 120g OTFB...

    California 5x4

    Shot this buck in 1983 in one of my favorite California hunt units. To date, he's still the biggest buck I've ever taken. At the time I had my tag validated by the local warden, he said it was the biggest buck he'd ever seen come out of the area. Not to bad for California.

    X-10 General Season Deer

    Has anyone hunted X-10 before? I put in for it this year as my second choice. Just wondering if anyone has hunted it before. If so, what's the amount of people going into the area for sightseeing and hiking who aren't hunters? Does anyone have any suggestions on general areas, i.e. Templeton...

    Stock Extenders and Muzzle Brake

    I have a TC Dimension with barrels in 22-250, 308, and 300 WinMag. The rifle shoots great. What I need is an extender that I can build into the stock to give me another 1" of pull length. I'm 6'7" and the only issue I have with the rifle is the length of pull. Does anyone have any thoughts...

    What Did These Come Out Of?

    I was hiking out in the desert yesterday and found this bullet in a canyon. As you can see, it's pretty old, so, some of my measurements may be skewed a bit by its age. Here's the measurements I got: Weight in grains - 382 Width (Just above the boattail) - .432 Length - 1.427 I'm stabbing...

    California Desert Bighorn

    While out doing some hunting this afternoon, I was sitting near the top of the mountain, when I noticed some movement about 800 yards away. A quick look through my spotting scope turned up this guy. It was a little fascinating watching him use his horns to scrape off the thorns from a cactus...

    22-250 For Bobcat & Coyotoe

    Getting ready to hit the hills for some Bobcat and Coyote hunting. I'll be using my 22-250 for both, loaded up with 62gr Nosler Varminters, pushed by 36.5gr of H380 for about 3400fps. I've taken a few Coyotes and think this load is more than adequate. But, I have hunted Bobcat before and am...
