    The Spot devices are good for basic needs.

    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.

    I'd look at the list of gunny's on here. I've used short action custom, a top shop. The stuff these precision competitors do has practile applications to hunters and long range shooters, IMO.

    Oregon addressed a parallel issue with Muzzleloaders some years back. With hi velocity pellet powered sabot loads with hi powered scopes on Muzzleloaders, hunt success was way up. As I recall the...

    When I upgraded, I wanted the same thing. So ended up with a 6 ply tread and went ahead with new Alum wheels to help keep unsprung weight down. Forget the brand, but it's tread pattern is an angled...

    The only rifle I have now that I'd shoot at game much over 400 yards with is a 280 Rem. It sports a 24" #5 contour Brux barrel with a 1 in 9 twist. Trued Rem 700 action, Timmney trigger, McMillian...

    I generally agree with you Jim. Those so strongly against this are less than a stones throw from banning guided hunts... I'm not going to shoot inside the tent. Where legal, I'm 100% fine with it.

    Have used a 25-06, 260, 270, 7-08, 280, and 30-06 to take elk. Mostly a 270 or 280 of late. All worked very well.

    EF kept popping up, along with a few others, when I was researching hunts. The other forums had some good info, but tolerated too many jerks. This forum seemed to do a better job weeding out most...

    Antelope are often thought of as open country animals, and I suppose most are. That said, I've found them up hi on mountains, in moderately thick cover, etc. Not sure it was due to pressure, I...

    My 280 out of a 24" Brux tube averages 3,013 fps with Barnes LRX bullets. Older 280 loads were anemic, and iirc, the SAAMI psi spec is higher for the 270. So even with its shoulder moved just a bit...

    The very high BC bullets really offer little advantage until they get past 500 yards or so. You are good there. LA vs SA is about 1/2" ish and a little weight. But you can make a very short handy...

    A very tempting one, that Kowa. Their optics get little play in hunting circles, but optically, their spotting scopes often at least equal and can top the German glass.

    6.5-284 has more recoil and is harder on barrels in target shooting than a 6.5 CM. Why the 6.5 CM is so popular among 6.5 shooters I suspect. I got my youngest a 260 Rem, had the CM been around at...

    Two eyes are better than one... I too see more game with my 15x bino's than my spotting scope. Can glass longer & easier too. I'm not an inch counter, so other than the weight, I usually prefer...

    I almost always shoot sitting. With the LR success you've had sitting, I'd just sit. But I will go prone when convient or I feel I need to for a very LR shot. The Stoney point I use is about a 9"...
