    Crispi or kennatrec?

    I cant complain about any kenetreks ive owned over the years. That being said, ive been wearing Crispi boots for the past 3 seasons and have no plans to change brands. Top notch in all versions ive tried, both non insulated and insulated.

    Altitude Sickness- who has gotten it?

Twice in severe circumstance. 1 was a pack trip guest who had never been above sea level in life basically and flew in day before and was at 8000' by that night after 7 hours horseback. I noticed the signs quickly as her headache grew immensely and fast, and by day 2...

    Elk units 86, 92, 94

    I think your data on 86 is a bit off... Cliff creek area is loaded with trucks and trailers all summer and fall long. Non stop people. Horses, trucks and 5th wheelers you name it they are plentiful in there. You can get away from people, but you would need to go more than a couple miles

    What Makes A Big Mule Deer?????

    Big is big.. you know it when you see them. I am a big fan of big framed deer. I don't care if they are 30"+ width or 26".. I've seen big deer that are both. But for me, like mentioned above, it's the WOW factor that means the most to me over score. But i do prefer to let 180" deer grow if they...

    Preliminary reports aren't good...

    Preliminary reports of the brutal winter effects on the mule deer in western Wyoming are starting to unfortunately come to truth like I have been expecting. I only think it will get worse the more we see the results. People who think older bucks are the ones who survive seem to forget that the...
