    Pre, RUT, Post??

    What's your preference for when to hunt elk if you could only pick 1 time period? I feel like most think the rut is the end all be all, and sure you'll hear and see more bulls, but does that actually translate into killing more elk/being more successful? I'm debating a pre rut archery elk...

    300 PRC, 375 Ruger, wouldn't they be better if...?

    Wouldn't the 300prc and 375 Ruger be even better if they were magnum length vs standard? I realize they came out to fit into standard length actions... I just think they would fill a nice niche between say the 375H&H and 375 RUM or 300win.mag, and 300 RUM they'd give you increased...

    Get caught Poaching, Lose ALL your Bonus Points??

    I don't know how each state operates, but I had the thought, that poachers should lose all their bonus points if caught. Not sure how many poachers have built up a bunch of points, but could be a good deterrent. What do you think?

    Bonus points for Mountain Goat and Rocky Bighorn? Non-res off years.

    I'm surprised NV won't let non-res, at least buy and build points for Mountain Goat and Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, even when they're closed in off years?? I mean we have to front the $160 license we should be able to keep building points IMO. for even off species. Not to mention the state...

    came across a .416 rem load with a 350 tsx around 2700fps Have a .340wby, thinking possibly insead of the 375H&H, that a 416rem/rigby could do more for me. maybe one day I'll have both, but would the 416 be better for me than the 375. maybe one day I'll hunt brown bear and africa, but more...
