    What pistol do you carry on hunts

    It's not legal to do anything but shoot paper with hanguns up here. In Montana I always carried my dad's Smith K22 in my daypack for grouse. 357 Highway Patrolman was in the saddlebag for bear medicine on the trail.

    Pump Shotgun Feedback/Sugestions?

    The problem with the 870 is they are cheaply made. That was the objective when they were introduced after the swift success of its stamped parts predecessor, the 11-48, a slicked up version of the Model 11 (which was essentially a copy of John Browning's Auto Five). Mind you the 870 is a work...

    Pump Shotgun Feedback/Sugestions?

    I see Ithaca Model 37 on the used racks fairly regularly. Nothing wrong with those. And if you find an old Model 31 Remington in good shape for a good price, snap it up. They don't make guns like that anymore.

    Pump Shotgun Feedback/Sugestions?

    Always interested to hear what the president of the Rocky Mountain Popgun Society doesnt have to say. Still anxiously waiting for that milk jug backstrap recipe. Do you shoot them on the ground or take them on the wing?

    Best malaria medicine out there.

    Pump Shotgun Feedback/Sugestions?

    Nope, not you. Someone, the thread starter I think, said he took his son to a store and tried both 870 and Winchester and the 870 didn't seem to fit right. The one thing most seem to agree on, even those who don't like them, is the 870 points very well.

    My fellow Resident Sportsmen of Montana, please read LTE.

    That eastern land developer running again? Was it New Jersey or Maryland or both?. I got a kick out of his last election ads riding a horse looking after his "ranch" ... holding the reins two handed up around his chin. Yeah, pretty scary to think that is the direction Montana GOP is going...

    Pump Shotgun Feedback/Sugestions?

    Not a Mossberg fan either ... but there are worse. Stoeger pump is junk. Almost requires a block and tackle to cycle them. Very rough. And then there's that cheap pump Remington makes, 877. I handled one in Grand Forks Scheels two years ago. The clerk asked me what I thought. "I think I...

    Best Flask for The Evening Campfire at Hunting Camp

    I don't think anyone was being overly judgemental. Booze and hunting has led to many serious issues and I have encountered a couple myself. Only thing worse is drinking on the boat. Personally I avoid drinking in the field now, if for no other reason than to set an example for next...

    Sierra: Your input here has been very enlightening. Thanks. Are you with federal Fish and Wildlife?

    Your welcome. For touching up antlers we use Minwax "Provincial" oil stain. Sometimes for deep scratches with very white bone I'll try "Medium Walnut" stain, but usually have to use spot of paint to cover it up. At some point if you decide to try lightening your rack, strip a spot on the back...

    Yeah, up here booze in the field will undoubtedly get your licenses revoked, hunting and federal firearms. Not sure on the federal revocation but seems to make sense. Beat up your spouse and you'll lose it for sure. For some years I carried a mickey of cheap scotch in my saddlebag during fall...

    Man, that's a shame. Welcome to the new world of outdoors lack of ethics. And conspiracy theories abound. Reality just ain't good enough anymore. Sad.

    Browning BAR Mark 3 go or no?

    I shot a nice buck with my brother's 300 Win BAR two years ago. Scope on my gun was off and he filled his tag so I used his gun rather than waste time sighting mine in. A one shot deal and not very far. Through the heart and that was that. The day before I missed an awkward shot laying on...

    duck hunting

    Sure, I know two guys from the club here who shoot from layout blinds with 20 gauge because they don't want to blow up the geese. And there's so many birds they can pick only the best close shots. I know way too many others who think they need 3.5" thunder sticks to do the same job. Poof! If...

    My first buck Euro mount complete, finally

    Keep your eye out for one. Seems everyone nowadays has to have as many power tools as possible. New gadget-itis. So they are unloading Shopsmith's for a truckload of new stuff. My cabinet maker brother, who was heartbroken when I finally hauled off Dad's Shopsmith, happened to notice one...
