    NR Minnesota Waterfowl

    My buddy and I are rolling around the idea of traveling out of state to hunt waterfowl this year as Kentucky has gone down the crapper (wasn't a far fall, but a fall nonetheless). Where do I start when looking for places to hunt? With something like 1500 choices how should I start to narrow it...

    The Dangers of Ice Fishing Poles

    Went fishing with my cousin yesterday, when our day was cut short by a treble hook embedded in his arm. For whatever reason he has a ice fishing pole (no ice fishing to be done in KY). While casting the bell flipped back over, and due to the short length of the pole, his rooster tail hit his arm...

    Sunglasses - Leupold vs Oakley

    Well, I am finally breaking down and am going to buy a pair of "premium" sunglasses. I go through about 2 or 3 pairs of cheap Walmart sunglasses a year and figured it would pay off to invest in a higher quality option with a good warranty. Right now I'm looking at the Leupold Switchback and two...

    Help Me Choose My First Pack (Updated)

    I know similar threads are around similar to this but I'm hoping for updated/specific answers. I've done quite a bit of research thus far. I know I want a ~4000ci bag and would prefer a system where I can easily purchase and swap out bags in the future. When I mention reviews I'm talking about...

    Best Water Bladder on the Market?

    After reading around on some other threads and perusing the internet I've come to the realization that the water bladder market is more complicated than I thought. What water bladder does everyone recommend? Any certain brand, closure style, insualted hose? etc.

    Where would you go for first time pheasant/quail hunt?

    I have never been on a pheasant or quail hunt, as the quail population in my area is extremely low and we do not have any wild pheasants. I could pay for a release-and-shoot type hunt, but that does not sit well with me. With that said I'm trying to find where to start for a DIY upland hunt...

    What camera are you running?

    My wife has been wanting a camera for a couple years and after a run-in with a large curious whitetail the other day, I am sold on purchasing one as well. Looking to see what everyone here is using. I dont have a clue what to look for other than newer mirrorless seems to be a great option...

    First Preference Points!

    While I know this isn't a big deal to most on here, I just purchased my first ever out-of-state preference points! Bought one for antelope and elk in Wyoming! I just wanted a place to share this first chapter of western hunting in my life, and figured this is best place as any. I'm sure there...

    Update--Should I Trade In My Semi-Auto For a Side-by-Side

    I have had a Stoeger M3500 for 2 or 3 seasons now, and I am about fed up with it. After going through multiple problems I am ready to trade it in. Convince me on why I should switch to a side-by-side or if I should buy another semi auto. My budget is $750 Before someone says get a pump, I...

    From the hollers of Kentucky

    Hi all, After growing up with an unquenchable thirst for adventure, the west, and big game hunting. I have finally decided it is time to start working towards that goal. I've grown up here in the far western reaches of Kentucky; learning at a young age to hunt and fish. From early squirrel and...
