    My uncle has a hardly used older Model 70 in .270 with a Leupold Vari x II 3.5x10 mounted on it. he wants to sell it. I looked at Gunbroker but cant find the same setup for a comparison. I'd say the Boss on the barrel is probably a deterrent to most but I'm not a Winchester guy so maybe...

    When shots are too far for you it doesnt matter what caliber you are toting

    I'm starting this thread in response to a post I read on here today about a specific caliber and a long shot and I didn't want to hijack that thread. I think hunters need to start worrying about what shot they can make, not what shot their xyz caliber can make. If you are one of the few...

    this is probably a dumb question but I cant seem to find the answer online. I was reading you can hunt 93 of Colorado's 184 Units with an over the counter archery bull tag. My question is, how do they come up with harvest statistics per unit if you can hunt multiple units per season with an...

    I was wondering if anyone has experience with the VXR line of scopes and how they compare to the VX-6 when it comes to glass quality. I want an illuminated reticle and I really like the simple red dot Leupold has with their firedot compared to some of the other manufacturers. Ideally I'd like...

    Thumb Bow release

    I've been thinking about switching to a thumb style release. I shot a tru-fire this weekend and liked it a lot. It had the rotating head which seemed nice, but I also see a lot of the top end (more expensive) releases and they don't necessarily all have the rotating head on it. I really...
