    Home Ranges: Firearms and Archery

    If you're able to dig into a hillside to encompass 3 sides with high burns from the soil dug to make a lane for a minimum 50 yards... that works great for archery, pistol, and general rifle sighting with a solid gun vice. Not sure your area though check County restrictions to make sure you're...

    And yet anther hobby....

    There are a few old... one almost un-noticable, small structures I've come across during hunt endeavors that I'd love to pack a metal detector to check out. Damn dcopas... now I'm going to have to "lose" a purchased necklace I must have dropped in the yard that I can not find. Buy a detector...

    FWP giving up on scientific management

    My impression... Montana's FWP, as mentioned by others has been pretty piss poor at their counts. Unless they are great in the area that supports one argument though terrible in all others, as mentioned... ID has been using cameras, etc for their counts. I find it likely, given the mutual...

    Ballot initiative to repeal HB637

    I think the ungulates ---> conservationists are on the losing end, unfortunately. No matter what, residents cheer for more weekend warrior active hunts, go nuts if suggestions to raise resident fees, and god forbid we reduce the B tags and shoulder seasons. This new agenda to squeeze science...

    FWP giving up on scientific management

    Wait for 2021 to show stats. That was to present the quota, the size of this one section, and the relation to GNP. Unfortunately FWP's wolf historical quota records are still not accessible. 313 Quota 1, harvest 2. 316 Quota 1 harvest 0.

    Tell your "friend" the harvest is closed because the whopping 2 have been taken each and every year. This is the challenge faced in MT and ID for that matter though ID is a bit better at harvesting wolves... I've been at wolves the past four years. was onto them on a few occasions then, my...

    Ballot initiative to repeal HB637

    Interesting. I was researching how I-161 played out. How some call it the pot calling the kettle black for what is felt necessary... same here. Odd enough, on google I found this on the first Google page and even more striking, it was a thread from close to the same time frame in 2013... even...

    Grizzly in the Big Snowies

    Would be nice for State management of these bears. Their population has exceeded objectives for esa and the corridors are as present as they will be in a human civilzation. I have a feeling incidents such as this will fuel this and seems the political setting favors landowners such as those...

    FWP giving up on scientific management

    I believe it IS a bad idea to go to some wacked out 2 year plan for science in every way shape and form... at the same time, if science is not used and political pandering to eco environmentalists is the reason for a quota of 2 wolves in an area as large and as elk hindered as 110 (as one...

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

    I don't agree with either though @Eric Albus has been here and done his time for a good while. He puts up his POV within a pretty rough crowd in response. IMO, not that Eric is an, "enemy" in any way though with respect to the quote by Sun Tzu; "To know your Enemy, you must become your...

    First Aid Supply procurment

    Haha! Or, we used thin strips of duct tape then a nice large piece to slap on top once when a buddy slipped his skinning blade along his leg. Not too long though it was a 14 stitch job once we got him to med station. Afghan Spec Ops buddy says duct tape has been a savior in more ways than one.

    FWP giving up on scientific management

    Carry on JLS... Your point has missed the mark. Hell, even Buzz says FWP is fugged up with respect to proper counting of elk. Lays blame directly on FWP. though hey, your point is what? That a quota of taking two wolves in an area as large as 110 means jack squat for our elk. We sure as heck do...

    Or we can keep every wolf in the various packs and suffer more elk fatigue - just as well.

    FWP giving up on scientific management

    Hey, you're pretty good at your own extrapolation from articles. I look at the fact we have a quota of taking two wolves for an entire area we suffer from a lack of elk. That is attributed to more than the wolf factor though the lack of effective management on the total population of wolves for...

    FWP giving up on scientific management

    My blinder referral is based on your assessment for why a nut job such as G won over Cooney (whom I voted for)... by the same voters who've voted D governors while also voting R Presidents ever since Martz! There is a reason and the blinders are a reference to your narrow view you shared of...

    FWP giving up on scientific management

    This is where you and I will continue to disagree. I think FWP has not done a sufficient job with their quotas and approximated #'s for our woof counts. You say tough shit - I say... many say tough shit to you and others who find the quotas are quality actions taken by our FWP. I think tough...
