    Looks like Nebraska isn’t selling NR turkey permits this year! Social distancing it seems.

    pump action 12 ga versus 45-70 lever rifle for alaskan bear defense

He read his book and had some other connections from his earlier trips he took to Alaska up on the Yukon. We spent 3 weeks in Ruby area on...

    pump action 12 ga versus 45-70 lever rifle for alaskan bear defense

    In 2015 my brother-in-law and I took a float plane trip to twin lakes, north of Lake Clark. The female game warden met us when we landed to warn us about a black bear that was causing problems. Bill carried his Winchester 45-70 and I carried a 12 gauge SS pump with pistol grip and slugs. They...

    Was always wanting to get a bobcat. I was able to call one in and take him down. Did it again 5 days later.

    Mule Deer Assistance

    4X, I would look farther west in NE, central NE is on the eastern edge of our mule deer range unless you are on the north side of the state. Bow hunting you should be able to find mature deer early in the season. Walk in hunt areas surrounded with private have some good bucks on them during...

    Wyoming elk unit 38 vs 45

    Go 45, if you can draw it. I haven’t been in 38, but have spent a lot of time in 45. Lots of rut activity, lots of success on bulls in the bow season.

    Plantar fasciitus

    Good advice from all. I had this about 6 years ago, worse in the right foot than the left. Lived with the pain for too long and finally went to a foot doctor. He gave me a steroid shot, was about like driving a 16 penny nail in your heel. That helped a couple months. Next he said he would do...

    Your most memorable hunt(?)

    Was about 1988, b-i-l called and wanted me to come out to Colorado to bow hunt. I hadn't been out for 3 or 4 years. This was 2 days before opener. Threw my recurve and gear in and headed out. Bought otc tags and shot my bow once we got to white river NF where we camped. First evening we saw a...

    Fines for Antelope massacre

    25 antelope were found shot in a wheat field in western Nebraska in November. Nebraska Game and parks caught the guys and they were fined $950 each and given 18 months probation. Sure wasn't much of a fine for all the damage they did killing a whole herd and leaving them to waste. I'm pissed...
