    Caribou Antlers

    Looking for some guidance from those of you who have gone before me. I have been told that I need to remove the antler(s) from the skull, or at least one of them for transport. My thought is to mount the antlers or skull cap on a replica skull. Is there a 'best practice' on removal? How the cut...

    GoPro or Similar Recording Device...?

    Anyone use a GoPro or other filming device that is not a handy-cam or digital camera? I've been intrigued with them for a few years. Seems "GoPro" is a household name and what everyone calls the device they use no matter the brand. Like using a Kleenex to blow your nose. There are dozens of...

    Win 6.8

    What are your thoughts on the 6.8? This article states it’s much better than most of the 6 mm rounds and even better than the 7mag as well as the 300 in a few categories. Quite honestly I only agree with being better than the 6MM. The 7 still outshines as do the other large caliber’s using large...

    Not sure what to make of this. I thought I heard licenses sold out in record time. Did folks simply not travel to hunt? I'm not debating the weather track. FWP using narrow, distorted KPIs to inaccurately assess hunt participation and success? Bad data leads to bad decision making for wildlife...

    New Build....maybe

    You ever have that nagging ache that you can't shake? Like I don't need a new 28 Nosler.... but I want one. lol Was chatting with a guy and he told me I'd be better off with a 7 SAUM or a 7WSM. The WSM is very close to the 28. Just thought I'd throw this out for conversation.
