    What you get with the Creedmore case design is a longer neck. Where that is valuable is for loading very long (heavy) for caliber bullets. It was designed for long range competition. 143-147 6.5...

    So it reduces "trophy" opportunity, not overall opportunity, that fair?

    Seems the $ should stay in WY or if used outside WY, benefit WY wildlife.

    Makes it a good old boy tradition IMO. ...

    He makes a good argument for the one shot. Aren’t there left over tags for antelope most years?

    My take on the 325WSM. Great all around cartridge if you hand load. Not the best choice for real LR work, limited hi bc bullet selection compared to several other calibers. More gun than I need,...

    Glad you liked it. Salmon likes milder woods IMO. My go to is an alder and apple mix, with a little hickory if I want more, works for my taste anyway.

    I forget exactly, seems he had 8 ish. I could go back and look, but points needed then are probably different than points needed in 2018.

    Good idea. But if I bring poles along, and they know I have them, they won't let me hunt... Not worried about quality, but the lots of elk sounds good. Appreciate the info.

    In 2013 had a great UT hunt in the SW desert unit. Runs Cedar City, north to Delta, then generally west from both towns to NV. We came in from the NV side. We'd never set foot there till opening...

    Western SD, say west River, is an under appreciated MD destination. Every bit as good as SE MT in my experience. Similar for antelope, but SE MT antelope seemed larger on average vs SD. Just...

    Those come in a variety of sizes and weights. Which one did you get? Larger scopes need heavier tripods to keep wiggles to a minimum. The Vortex offerings are solid. Pick one with a weight...

    My two cents, carry the spray. The 9mm sure can kill a grizz, but so can a 22LR. Would not want to bet my life on either.

    Doubt you have time to switch from spray to gun. If you must carry the...

    A case growing in width suggests an over size chamber, the sticky bolt too much pressure. Still makes no sense. A too large chamber would be very hard on brass, but I'd not expect it to make the...

    If I'm not mistaken, that case head spaces on the shoulder. A barrel generally gets shot out in the throat area. CC is right, barrel life ought to be better than that, unless you have done some...

    The Inreach has more capability. Some of the old DeLorme ones are being closed out as Garmin now makes them.

    A Sat phone is nice too.
