    "NO Campfires"

    Early season hunts are opening, and for all planning on being out here in the west. Please no campfires, and be careful with anything with a flame. I know part of the hunt experience is sitting around a fire at the end of the day and telling lies about the days events. But with the high fuel...

    Barnes all around 06 round

    I used to reload 20 years ago, and my 06 really liked the Barnes bullets. Made the move to archery, but broke out the rifle again lately. I don't reload anymore but am looking for a good "all around" Barnes round. Antelope to Elk\Bear. I 'm not one to shoot past 300 yds.

    Miniture Reproductions

    At one time I had a web address for an outfit that would make miniature reproductions of your trophies, for desk display, or rear view mirror hangers etc. Basically you took High resolution photos of your mount from all different angles and sent to them, and they would reproduce it to a...

    Lower leg?????

    I don't understand why I see soo many pictures of people packing out quarters with the lower leg still attached. Seems to me that's a lot of just bone, dead weight to pack for no reason. Font quarters are easy just cut through the knee joint, the hinds, a bit tricky to separate at the butchers...

    Fall Baiting???

    Just finished my 2nd spot and stalk Idaho bear hunt. Only saw one bear (still learning the ropes) though I was assured by other bear hunters and the local rancher there are plenty of bears in the area. Though it's not a high density population. Is fall baiting a worthy option? I have family in...

    AZ Javelina

    Just found out I drew for AZ Archery Javelina, I think I look forward to this hunt more than any other. It's just a fun hunt during the winter, beats January in NE Nevada. No real pressure to harvest, just a great time with my brother(s), good weather, different scenery, not strenuous even if...

BUT, I did take the coyote calls and made three stands while out there. Stand #1: should have stayed a few more minutes, got up and started on up the ridge and then...

    ? bullet performance, complete pass throughs?

    I’m more of an archery guy these days, haven’t used a rifle much since the ole Winchester silvertips, and pointed soft point days. I keep reading posts how a lot of guys brag about a complete pass through with their preferred bullet. Seems kinda contradictory to me, as for a bullets performance...
