    2021 Hunting Success Thread

    Well, for the second year my intention was to shoot a Wyoming muley with an iron sighted Savage 99. This year, I brought the '59 99F in .250Sav. But this year's drought had the sage and Greasewood stunted so badly that it offered no cover for a stalk and shot within 150. Plus the muleys had...

    How many rounds of ammo to take?

    Being a northeastern whitetail stillhunter my whole life, a lot of the shots presented to me are offhand without any kind of an aid. Granted, most are inside of 70 yds and I very seldom take a shot at a running deer. When I'm out west hunting mule deer or antelope, I most often have time to set...

    How many rounds of ammo to take?

    I'm with, buckbull, except I carry 1 box each for my primary and secondary rifles, and don't feel handicapped. For this years WY muley trip, it will be an open sighted Savage 99F in 250Sav backed up by a Montana in 7-08. I fly and have to be careful how much weight I put in my Pelican case. I...

    Hammer Hunters

    For the guys using these, what is your source for load data? Is there a published Hammer manual? My initial search has not turned up much. I'm not very app savvy.

    Where is everyone?

    I'm still new to this forum....only becoming active the last year or so. But when I registered, I remember noting to myself how slow and inactive this forum is compared to others like Rokslide and 24HourCampfire. Still, I like it here because the political BS is way less present than other...

    MagnetoSpeed Sport Chrono

    I'm looking to purchase my first chronograph and have been giving the Sport model a look at $179. From the videos and reviews that I've seen so far, they seem like a straight forward, accurate and convenient unit to set up and use, even in shit weather. Does anyone here have any experience with...

    When are Wyoming tags mailed

    Received my deer tag today, but no regs guide. I think I read somewhere that they are a separate mailing.

    When are Wyoming tags mailed

    Has anyone received their Wyoming deer or antelope tags yet. I thought I had mine by this time, last year.

    WTB RCBS Reloading Equipment

    Looking to get back into reloading and searching for vintage RCBS equipment... pre Chinese crap. For now, specifically looking for a Rock Chucker press, an Ohaus 10-10 scale, powder measure and case trimmer. A bundle would be great, though a piece at a time works also. Thanks.

    What kind of hunter...

    I consider myself a Northeastern stillhunter and snow tracker of whitetails, first and foremost. I learned from my dad and grandpa starting at the age of six or so. In my 20s, 30s and 40s, my buddies and I did a lot of backpack hunts deep in the Adirondacks, the Poconos and the North Woods of...

    Gun Cases?

    I'm a little late to the game here, but I'm another vote for the Pelican 1750. I've been flying for four years now with mine and , aside from a few black conveyor scuffs, it's as tight and straight as the day I took it out of the box. As for the TSA, some agents have required a lock in every...

    Wyoming NR general tags - how many point required this year ??

    I drew a NR muley general tag last year with one point on a Special. I pulled the same tag this year with zero points.
