    Spring Bear

    I posted previously about a .28 Nosler custom build I just completed with my gunsmith. Well, I just took it on a Spring Bear, spot and stalk, hunt in Montana last week and got this nice big boar.

    Stika & KUIU Pants - Waterproof ?

    Hey guys, In the "Game Changing Gear" Thread folks are talking about buying KUIU Attack Pants and Sitka Timberline Pants. I didn't want to hijack that tread so I'll ask here ... I know those aren't "rain pants" but are they water-resistant at all? Thx.
