    How careful are you with scope mounting?

    I don’t trust anyone to mount my scopes. I bought all the tools to do it even though I may only do it a dozen times in my life. If you buy quality rings you shouldn’t need to lap them and they will tell you as much in the mounting instructions.

    Quit smoking cigarettes 20 years ago but still enjoy the occasional cigar (2-3/year). Something usually in that $10-15 range with a light wrapper.

    About ready to pull the trigger

    Love the Marsupial with the rangefinder case I bought last year. Sumbitch fills up with snow though if you get on a belly crawl. Its a hell of a nice bino harness though.

    Caffeine Withdrawal

    My cousin once gave me the line, "Dude, you just switched from coffee to coffee beer at about 11 a.m!". But yeah 1-1/2 days without coffee and I just get a pounding headache.

    Bear rug

    I might as well have been skinning mine with a sharp rock compared to what this guy does.

    Bear rug

    I like how the felt is somewhat hidden. He did a good job and I would say price is probably below average for what I have paid on rugs.

    Good call on the crescent roll up too. Mine ended up in a gumbo with some venison ring bologna for the sausage. I like the firmness of the squirrel meat as another texture.

    <$1000 Over/Under Shotguns

    I won a Pointer Sporting O/U 28 gauge at a banquet and I have been pretty impressed with weight and reliability. I'm not a cheap gun guy and normally use a Cynergy but find it too heavy for grouse walks. The Pointer Killed a lot of grouse. My FIL has the Stevens 555 in 20. No complaints from him.

    Is the grass always greener?

    I jumped around quite a bit when I was first married with the wife but we never made it out west. Wisconsin to Minnesota to Florida to Minnesota to Oregon to Louisiana...... all to end back up in Wisconsin. I like visiting other places but definitely need to stay put if I ever want to retire.

    Quinzhees are real. You can make one and camp in it but it isn't the most enjoyable.

    Is the grass always greener?

    I guarantee you would miss being surrounded by water. Even more when you show up at the reservoir and 50 other people are already there.
