    In college all I hunted was waterfowl mostly, just couldn't embrace the wonder that is an East River SD deer hunt! I try hard to cook waterfowl in ways that are not only tolerable, but (dare I say...

    I've used Montana Pitch Blend, Skidmore's, and more recently, Kenetrek boot wax. They all work well, the key is to make sure any sort of water proofer gets worked into the leather. Apply it...

    So…I've had a chance to review the proposal and look over the 2014 harvest stats so far. I'm curious to know what buck:doe ratios look like in either of these units, and how do they compare to ideal...

    Hey Sneaky,

    I just talked to the guys at MRC and the one neat thing I found out was the Colorado Buck Special Edition is available in a left hand model. That can give a guy some added uniqueness...

    Good luck with the caliber decision. That debate will give you gray hair. I don't know if it affects your decision or not, but Savage no longer makes the WW with a hinged floor plate. I'm not...

    The Savage is a .300 Win and I'm guessing I'll probably end up going the same route with the MRC. There are so many to choose from and a .280 Ackley, 7mm, .300 WSM, and heck even a .270 Win or...

    As much as as I wish it were not the case, Winchester will not do the Ext. Weather SS in a leftie set up. Browning, Savage, Remington, Tikka, and Ruger will be the options in the $450.00 to $1000.00...

    That's quite a set-up! I've always considered a .280 in any flavor to be the gentleman shooter's rifle. Keep us posted with how it does!
