    Vortex Diamondback vs. Viper

    The Viper has more clarity at low light and seems to have a different coating that makes everything seem brighter.

    Vortex Diamondback vs. Viper

    I sold my Diamondbacks for vipers and would never go back. They are well worth the extra money.

    2019 Goals: What are you shooting for?

    I'd like to shoot a mule deer that is worth putting on the wall. I passed three 20" 4x4's last year and I'm hoping one of them makes it through the winter.

    Utah Bighorn Sheep Herd Dying

    There is an island directly north of Antelope Island where exotic hunts were conducted a number of years ago. I don't know if they are still conducted there but I know that sheep was one of the species they hunted. I believe there was actually a report of a mouflon sheep found on the causeway...

    Vanguard Wilderness or a DIY Howa Alpine

    Had a buddy of mine buy a Vanguard Wilderness in 300 Wby this year. It is a lot of gun for the money. Fluted barrel and a Bell and Carlson stock. I'm a big fan of high comb monte carlo stock because they keep your eyes lined up with a scope better than a straight comb. I also like having the...

    I hunted there this year and only saw a few small bucks. The winter kill from a couple of years ago is still being felt in this area. Hopefully it comes back in the next couple of years.

    Any Weatherby fans here?

    I have a Vanguard 300 Wby that I've taken mule deer, white tail, moose, elk, and antelope with. I struggle to pull anything else from the safe if I'm going on a hunt.

    Fresh Tracks now live on Amazon Prime

    My wife detests most hunting shows but loves the Randy Newburg series. When I started watching the episodes she said, "Randy's not that good of a hunter is he? It seems like he never kills anything!" That's when I had to explain that Randy does all the hunting on public land with no guide, no...

    Don't hate me because I'm from N. Utah!

    I like to hunt all big game. I've been fortunate enough to hunt elk, moose, deer, antelope, and caribou. I would love to do a big horn hunt but I need to get lucky in a draw. Thanks for the welcome.

    Cape care mistake?

    You can take it to a taxidermist but I don't think the cape would still be good. The problem with leaving the cape in the fridge is that the ears will dry out. When the taxidermist goes to turn the ears, they will be too dry to turn,
