    45 reloading issue

    Just got back from the range and had an issue with some reloaded 45 auto. Same issue happened last time but I thought it might have been due to my pistol not being cleaned in awhile. I had about 6 or so rounds out of the 100 I shot not chamber. I would pull the trigger and nothing happened...

    Lunch meats

    My goal this year is to actually fill some tags and have enough meat to not only feed the family dinner for the year but to make my own "lunch meats". I am tired of buying that stuff for sandwiches and lunch at work when I don't have leftovers. Anybody else do anything like this? Just make...

    How young is too young?

    My wife and I have doe antelope tags. My 3 year old son keeps bugging to come hunting (he is enormous for his size so everyone thinks he is 5 or so). My question to you all is how young were your kids when you started having them tag along. He has no problems hiking and loves to fish but...

    Hunting bullets: Partition vs ELD X

    I have been using Nosler partitions for elk deer and antelope for a while with great success. I have no reason to switch except that the Hornady eld x hunting bullets are basically half the price of the partitions. I am a cheapskate and right now the wife is staying home to take care of the...

    Crossbow Broadhead Recommendations

    Just jumped into the world of archery. Great a deal on a crossbow and am looking for some info on some good broadheads.

    National Elk Refuge

    Anyone ever hunted the National Elk Refuge? I see they have permission slips for the middle of October still available. I just moved to the Pinedale area so I have no idea how pressure or anything is around there. Would the elk even be there right now? Just looking at all my options on this...

    So due to some crazy circumstances (new job trying to move family stuff etc) I have not yet loaded up a batch of ammo for hunting season. I have a recipe all worked up that my rifle likes and I plan on using it so all it will take is a little time at the bench and the range to mark sure...

    My dad and I are looking at each getting a new GPS for elk hunting here in Wyoming. We want ones that let you see where other people in your party with a gps are just in case we get separated or something. I believe the Garmin Rino gps does this but am not sure. I think that's what they are...
