We saw elk every day and he drew a drop of blood on one and totally missed another. It is about getting experience and that hunt does that.We missed the elk camp because of...

    USFS suddenly shuts public roads prior to elk hunt

    Hunt clint's well from the highway or anywhere along there. Just drive at dusk and try not to get one. That's why my hunting truck has a tape player not a mp3. A 4 thousand dollar bullet is a lot easier to swallow than 45-50,000. I do like idea that give warning and if need help really have to...

    Snow skiing vs water skiing

    My buddy who is athletic skied with me without ever taking a lesson. He was very good at hockey and kind of did a hockey stop thing to turn. He also was a good water skier but that didnt help him as much except to be bold enough to go down black diamonds in New York with me. Diamonds in the east...

    Montana on the Upswing?

    Isn't a 60 footer where you get the quote "Looks great. Lot of sap in here, little full". Even movies have gone down hill in last 30 years. But in all seriousness I have stayed away from Montana because of all the posts here of mismanagement. Good point earlier about sw States ie Arizona where...

    Illegal hunting on College Campus

    Look around dairy barns. It is way more built up than back in the day. I once saw a huge buck next to 70 downtown between town and main. Now that is urban.

    .350 legend... sell me on it

    I bought one because I have 4 kids in a straight wall state, Ohio. Also after getting hammered by my slug gun for years I might use it if kids are not out with me. I called the ohio dnr and they told me that .355 is an anomaly and they consider it legal per the .357 minimum bullet size. You can...
