    I'd still grab my Exo with either the 2000 or 3500 bag most of the time. That pack moves with me well enough it's like not having a frame until you need the frame. Even if I'm not packing much...

    I love the First Lite Aerowool. It dries faster than normal merino but keeps the scent control qualities. Next to skin it's definitely my favorite.

    My biggest to date grossed 338". We jokingly called him Snufflupagus due to the brow point that goes down in front of his nose. I shot him as the weather broke after 3 days of the mountain being...

    Is it happening with several brands of factory ammo, or just one? Just curious if you got some bad ammo. I'm no expert just thinking of the process of elimination.
