    sleeping bag syndrome

    Agreed. I'm a huge fan of WM bags. I've got a wide frame. The WM are a little wider than most bags and the quality is very good.

    Brass Trimming

    Folks, I'm a fairly new reloader. I've reloaded about 1000 rounds of pistol cartridges and just started reloading rifle rounds. I'm currently working up a load for 300 WSM. The Hornady and Nosler manuals call for a trim length of 2.1". I've got the following brass at the stated trim lengths...

    Advice for new .22 pistol

    CC Hits!

    I got lucky and drew a 2nd season deer tag along the Utah border. Very excited and I hope my application in WY does’t hit.

    What is your go to elk rifle / ammunition combo?

    Tikka T3 Lite 300 WSM pushing 180 Nosler Accubonds has been my go-to for the last 8 years. I have thought about upgrading the rifle but I haven't found a left handed rifle in 300 WSM that I like. I also use a Thompson Center Omega with Blackhorn 209 pushing a Barnes TMZ Spitfire 250 gr...

    Hunting Seasons In Trouble?

    Just a question...what happens if hunting seasons are closed this year? May not be likely, but as a NR hunter I am concerned. Do you think the agencies will cancel tags? Carry over any drawn or purchased tags to 2021?

    Mule deer decision

    Fellas, With the season structure change, and a little impatience, I'm strongly considering burning my mule deer points this year. I have enough points to draw either Unit 21 2nd season or Unit 40 3rd season. I've hunted around the west, but never in western CO. I'm hoping to get a few opinions...

    Google Earth BLM Overlay

I am using Google Earth Pro and specifically scouting Montana. What links do you guys use? Sent from my iPhone...
