    WY 90/10 Deer/Elk/Antelope Question

    Opportunities change and we adapt and change with them. People get the option to choose how they react to change. If they want to leave WY and go elsewhere it is their right. That’s the beauty if the capitalistic society. I’ll hopefully be in WY in 2023. Not sure if I’ll ever hunt there or...

    WY 90/10 Deer/Elk/Antelope Question

    It will have a ripple effect. Some guys will go whole hog, but others will not. The price increase for NR and none for R should cause some moral outrage. I can see a decline in NR hunters after a few years. That $326 antelope tag will go up, let's say $425 and the $614 special will go up...

    WY 90/10 Deer/Elk/Antelope Question

    The outfitters pay the big land owners and the big landowners have clout and like the checks they get. the prospect of 90/10 taking place in 2024 is likewow.

    WY 90/10 Deer/Elk/Antelope Question

    Rokslide has a thread that basically says elk/deer/antelope 90/10 possible in 2024. "On Tuesday Morning, Dr. Shaffer presented the outline of a "Grand Compromise" his subcommittee would work on and brink back to the full WWTF at the June 8-9 meeting: Eliminate the current 7,250 cap on...

    how many of you belong to the NRA and should I renew my membership

    Life member here. Believe that every gun owner should be a member. They are the only gun organization that the Dems complain about or even mention. That should be enough right there. Anyway, for your $35 you get to help protect the 2nd Amendment from foes on both sides of the isle, a...

    https://abc13.com/uvalde-texas-robb-elementary-school-active-shooter-district-lockdown/11889693/ A tragedy! So, now we'll see if the govt calls for gun confiscations. Another Sandy Hook with a teenager shooting up little kids. Maybe one of them gun clubs will say something?

    Rain jacket

    Funny that Jim mentions the cheap BPS/Cabelas stuff. I just bought 2 XXL and 1 Med for my boat. They are coated nylon, seem decent enough. Carry em in the boat for use as windbreakers and rain coats. For hunting I bought a $60 camo packable, breathable rain jacket from BPS - need to dump...

    350 Legend

    it would be easier to get a 350 Legend rifle. If you can just use then without mag, i’d go this route. The 150 gr winchester deer load should give DRT performance. With sub 100 yard shots, the .357 mag would be excellent. I’ve got a single shot and a M77/357. They shoot bottom of a soda can...

    350 Legend

    What ranges do you want? i have .357 mag at 1,900 fps w Lil Gun and fury 158 gr bullets that ring 8 inch steel all day long at 225 yards. Single shot rifle also allows .355 165 gr ftx bullets to do the same. Never would have bought 350 L if i had found the fury bullets first. .357 mag as a...

    2022 Fishing thread

    Weather been in 80s and breezy. Cedar Key. No reds. Guy who lives next to the house we rented said to go soak mullet on the bottom in a 12 ft deep channel out in the middle of some oyster bars where the channel Ys and we’d get a few. Haven’t found it yet. Mainly focusing on trout w corks...

    2022 Fishing thread

    We ran into some black drum tailing today. Dad really enjoys that kind of fishing. He put the bait right in front of the fish and 15-20 minutes later we estimated 30-35 pounds and released. I told him it was a 2 hand fish, he said hurry up and take the picture. The little silver one is a...
