    You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet

    I wondered the same thing during the auction, but the auctioneer stopped the auction to explain that it was being sold in lots, by the pound. The front row had buyers that bought several pounds at a time at $180.00/pound.

    Non-resident outfitter license (MT) Bill is up for hearing 2/2/2021 (SB 143)

    You guys can hang your hat on numbers like that and think a few hundred votes represent 90% of Montana. I guess we will have to disagree about what 90% means.

    Non-resident outfitter license (MT) Bill is up for hearing 2/2/2021 (SB 143)

    Arguing with you is like wrestling a girl. There’s no sport in that and all you have beaten is a wimp. Thump someone else’s stump and leave it at that. You are a loser and though you might have some friends, if most Montanans agreed with you, they would have made more of a stir about this and...

    I used to use it for most lever actions, but have since switched to 5744. It seems to be a better powder and doesn’t leave quite as much unburned powder in the barrel.

    So says you. You need to know you aren’t the king of all things outdoors, just a loud noise some consider “white noise” I hope that meets your approval, you have been needling me for a long time, I have been quiet, but you are your biggest fan, most outspoken against Montana and it’s...

    Non-resident outfitter license (MT) Bill is up for hearing 2/2/2021 (SB 143)

    The lines have been well established: Sportsman groups vs FWP, Landowners and Outfitters. I don't belong to any sportsman group, I am not a landowner, an employee of FWP or a guide, yet I hunt and fish for most everything in Montana. There will never be a treaty signed to the satisfaction of...

    Crazy dusky grouse today

    At some point, I believe they get territorial around the breeding season, which could account for the hostility. Elk and deer, during the rut are equally as dumb to their survival at their breeding times, and I don’t think the grouse is any different. It is just that we see game animals...

    Definitely not another "Caliber Thread" 😬

    Hunting rifles are as personal as socks. Everyone wears them, but no one agrees which is best. I like rifles for more than practicality, I like them as working art. That said, I would tell you to consider the 257 Roberts. It is a workhorse of the 25 bore lineup, not as powerful as a 25-06, but...

    You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet

    I went to an auction on Saturday that had the biggest supply of reloading stuff I have seen in quite awhile. There was some powder I could use so I waited patiently until they got to the IMR 3031 and IMR 4350. The bidding started fast and they ended up selling for $180.00/pound! I thought that...
