    What is the ultimate outdoor job?

    When I first got out of the Navy, I worked (if you wanna call it work) for 2 years on a catamaran in St John taking out snorkelers and serving drinks on sunset cruises. Didn't pay squat but it was the ultimate outdoor job. Good memories!

    Borrow or buy or?

    If you buy a used rifle and take good care of it, you can likely sell it after the hunt for what you paid for it.

    Best 375 H & H Parent case cartridge

    My favorite is the 7mm Rem Mag. It does everything the 30-06 does, just a little better.

    Best .30-06 parent case cartridge

    Cool. Let's steer off in that direction! What would be you good folks opinion on "the best" 308 parent case cartridge? BTW, of course it's a "tastes great....Less filling" type discussion . It's just for entertainment purposes. I enjoy hearing people's opinions on guns, ammo, archery...

    Trad Guys! What Fletching Configuration Do You Use?

    I have tried 4 fletch but it bounces off the shelf more than 3. If your arrow is tuned right and your brace height is correct, you should get good flight with minimal fletching. Less fletching means a faster, quieter arrow.

    What aren’t low recoil cartridges more popular?

    Yes, unfortunately. I really like the idea of hunting with one rifle that I know like the back of my hand. Another advantage is less meat damage. I guess there's a small segment of the population that enjoys being kicked in the nuts by redheaded women. Not really my cup of tea and neither is...

    What aren’t low recoil cartridges more popular?

    I use reduced recoil rounds in my 7mag. I prefer The Hornady Custom Lite. The ballistics end up being identical to a 7mm-08. All I need for deer, hogs, and antelope. I reserve the full power rounds for nilgai and elk sized critters. Less recoil, less muzzle blast, doesn't burn out my barrel as...
