    You must mean something like strongest per area of cross section. They aren't very big in size but I would not be surprised if they are really strong. They must take a wicked pounding running like they do. Pronghorns cool animals different from all the deer like critters. And thats one of the...

    Yep thats just what happened to my hunting partner... shot a little too high. I suppose a 243 would make a mess as well. I could not believe how small their leg and rib bones are. You aren't going to hear a lot of stories of needing 4 shots to slow them down. All comes down to shot placement...

    Beginner Elk Hunt- Wyoming

    I'n heading to Utah for a cow elk hunt this fall. I got a tag and am going with an outfitter. Yes it will cost a lot but It works for me. I'm 67 and in decent shape but Im also realistic. The chances of me driving way out there from Maine finding places to hunt shooting an Elk and doing all...

    White water

    Well with a name of MaineCanoe Guide it stands to reason Ive done plenty. The rivers here in Maine run from flat water to terrifying. Most of them are several miles of easy going and then short steep rapids. I'll tell you... scouting a rapid from the top ,picking out a route thru the rocks and...
