    WHAT A MESS!

    Now that there is not going to be a game, I can confidently say this was going to be Michigan's year! LOL

    Favorite mule deer bullet?

    I have found it hard to match the Weatherby factory ammo ballistics. There is not a lot of reloading data out there that duplicates the factory ammo ballistics. Your method of pulling the bullet and weighing the powder is also what I did. The problem I had when I was first reloading was I...

    Favorite mule deer bullet?

    I have two 300 Wbys, one doesn't like the barnes, the other does. I am going to try Nosler Partitions this year, I already have them but have not taken the time to shoot them yet.

    Favorite mule deer bullet?

    I've used 180 grn barnes tripple shock for many years in my 300 wby. Pretty hard to beat their performance on impact, not the most accurate bullet out there though.

    Youth Antelope Hunts

    If you have any possible intentions of taken your kids hunting in Wyoming buy them points for all 3 species every year. It is a really good deal at $10 per point. I have been buying my son all the points since he turned 12. We have cashed in his Antelope points and have been able to go deer...

    How much is too much?

    I have two kids in college and I told them I would give them help using a formula that basically the better grades they get the more I will help. They have been doing very well in school which is great but it is cutting into my available cash for hunting. Just the stage of life I am in right...

    Advice for new .22 pistol

    Well, I stopped at a few gun shops again today and all of the pistols are flying off the shelves so I decided I couldn't sit around debating this any longer. I picked up a Walther P22, ran about 100 rounds through it this afternoon and so far I am really happy with my choice. Surprised by it's...

    What would be your dream hunt?

    Any bull elk hunt, I am haunted by my desire to kill a bull elk. I have had two opportunities and blew them both. I have been totally snake bit when it comes to hunting elk, I don't even care what size as long it's a branched antler bull.

    WY Antelope Area 23 help

    Since the only leftover buck tags available are Area 23 and Area 24 type 2 license, I was wondering if anyone knows any ranchers that take trespass fees in these areas and would be willing to share that info. I would like to still pull off a hunt with my daughter this year and this is the only...

    What Is Your Favorite Gun To Shoot???

    As several have already said I enjoy shooting period, but I have to say I really enjoy playing around with my M1 30 carbine. It's just a lot of fun, kids have a blast shooting it virtually no recoil.

    If you could change your profession, what would it be?

    The early 80s were a great time to be a fur buyer, that's when I first started trapping around 1982. I still cannot believe the prices we got for furs back then compared to now. I bet that job was a blast.

    If you could change your profession, what would it be?

    I got an FFL as soon as I turned 21 hoping someday to open a shop. During the Clinton administration the ATF started increasing the requirements and after 3 years when it came time to renew my license I let it go. They pretty much scared me out of it, a decision I have regretted ever since...

    Just saw this

    Totally agree with what they are trying to accomplish, but I would not want to be one of officers trying to enforce this. I can just imagine all of the BS they are going to have to listen too.

    If you could change your profession, what would it be?

    I made a career change 2 years ago. I spent about 24 years working in management at a Paper Mill holding many different positions over the years. I had an opportunity to switch to basically a consultant for a chemical company servicing the Paper Mills in the area. While it has turned out to...

    WI Family Saves Bear While Fishing

    That's what I told my kids, poor bear finally found a way to cross the lake without getting his face wet and now he probably drowned because of his fear of water.

    Other interests

    I fish a little, I really enjoy playing basketball but I don't think I'll be able to keep doing it much longer. I remember when my father would look forward to logging after he retired from the VA, I thought he was crazy, now I really enjoy running a chainsaw or almost any type of outdoor work...

    Grizzly / Wolf question

    My take on this is very simple. Our forefathers eradicated them for a reason and I do not believe they were stupid people. Man has replaced the need for these apex predators to control the population of game species. The only reason to reintroduce them is if you want to remove Man from...

    The Memes Thread!

    Good point, I am always lecturing my kids about that but somehow didn't think of this forum as "Social Media". All of the larger corporations are running scared and I really don't feel like being collateral damage at this point in my career. Thanks for the reminder.
