    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...

    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

    Fellas, I've tried to find a BLM overlay to help scout in a Google Earth. I've found a few links that people say work for them, however I haven't been able to get them to work for me.

    300 WSM Brass

    I've been striking out on finding Winchester 300 WSM brass lately. Does anyone know when more will hit the market? A local gun shop told me they weren't expecting any for a long time. I've found Nosler and Norma. I may have to go that route. I'm not wild on the price, even though it is good...

    Tikka T3 Lite Upgrades

    Fellas, I own a Tikka T3 Lite 300 WSM SS. I've been happy with it and shoots good enough for me, however, I would like to do a few upgrades. Don't really need to, but I would like to have a project to work on over the winter and work on more long range shooting this summer (300-400 yd). I still...

    Lander WY Taxidermist

    Has anyone ever used or heard reviews of any taxidermist out of the Lander area? I've contacted Wind River and Wyoming Wild Art. Seem like decent folks but I haven't seen much of their work, as I don't think they have a webpage. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Rawlins or Casper Firewood

    I'm looking for firewood in either Casper or Rawlins for antelope camp in a few weeks. I say either/or because I'm not sure on the route I will take to get to Unit 67. Does anyone know of folks selling firewood in either place? Thanks for the help.

    New Binos or Spotting Scope

    Fellas, I currently own Nikon 10x42 Monarch Binos and a Nikon Prostaff 65mm spotting scope. I am going to upgrade one of the to to a Vortex Razor. I'll either go with the same size Razor binocs or upsize to the 80mm spotting scope. Like most, I use the binocs more, but they do just fine. I...

    Refund Process

    Anybody know how NM refunds the credit card applications? I can't remember if they send a check or if they apply the refund directly to your credit/debit card account. Either way, no big deal really. I just need an answer for the household accountant (aka Wife). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Dovetail Bow Site

    Just about when I talked myself into getting a new bow this year; I chickened out. I am going to compromise with my conscious and get a new bow site. This time, I am considering a dovetail sight mount for the increased accuracy and I hear they help with target focus. My only concerns would be...

    Unit Strategy

    So...I've been thinking of changing my draw strategy in Colorado. I've been applying for elk and mule deer in different units. This year I am considering applying for archery tags for both in the same unit. Sometimes I think it would be better (and easier) to stay in one unit from a scouting and...

    Flat Tops were tough this year

    I struck out in Colorado this year. I figured it would happen. The Flat Tops are fun to hunt and LOTS of people agree. Still had a good time though. This trip was my second go around with my new tent (Cabelas Bighorn III) and a new stove. The best part of the trip was having a bull moose "sneak"...

    Colorado Mountain Goat Preference Point Growth

    From a response on a previous post, I have posted some data regarding Colorado Moutain Goat preference point growth since 2003. There has been a significant increase in total point holders and "top end" weighted points as well. Luckily, you dont have to hold the most points to have any chance to...
