    Pete, have you put those chains on your GMC? I have a 2012 Silverado, and the owner's manual says no chains, but after doing some research last year, I concluded GM was being overly cautious and I...

    Thanks to both of you. I have a little of each (merino/synthetic) and prefer the merino, but don't mind the other, and was seeing some good prices on the Sitka synthetic, so it got me thinking.

    I hunted 16 last year, first time out and had some problems figuring out public vs private, but was generally able to figure it out. GPS with landowner chip is essential. Also, I bumped into a BLM...
