    Youth Double

    Had a fun, but really short, hunt Saturday with my son. We set up 100 yards away from the roost tree about 45 minutes before legal shooting time. It was raining and breezy so nothing was calling yet. 10 minutes before legal time the rain stopped and they started gobbling from the trees right...

    Persistence Paid Off

    2020 was one of the toughest elk seasons I have ever experienced. I spent 23 days in the field between scouting, archery, and rifle. This included 5 different trips to Wyoming. 2 of the trips were scouting/family camping and the last 3 were actually hunting. My plan this season was to...

    New Fire in Wyoming. Deer area 78 and elk area 110.

    New Fire started today. Thought I would get word out for anyone planning to hunt deer area 78 and elk areas 110. It's in the savage run wilderness currently but will likely have an impact on a good amount of this area.

    Alaska - negative test required Not sure how this can work with a 72 hour requirement? I know many aren't getting results back that fast.

    Anyone on the forum manufacturing euro hangers?

    I am shopping for a few new hangers for Deer Euro mounts and a buddy is looking for a couple elk ones. I also know a taxidermist that is looking for a new supplier. There are plenty available online but I thought I would see if anyone on here makes them.

    Wyoming General Elk party application

    It's a long shot but is anyone planning to use 6+ points for a general elk tag next year? I am interested in partying with someone for the draw. I have 1 point and likely won't be able to draw. 3.5+ points should draw. I am not looking for a hunting partner as I have a group of Wyoming...

    Wyoming Family Hunt

    I took my wife and son out with me to camp, call elk, and hunt a doe antelope- the only tag I drew this year in Wyoming. We spent the first day trying to call elk in but the action was slow. We did get one bull talking but couldn't budge him off his cows and we had little light left to pursue...

    Oklahoma Hog Hunt

    I have a group of 6 guys that want to do a weekend hog hunt. We prefer Oklahoma due to drive times but would consider North Texas if it was an amazing deal. Half the guys are coming from Laramie Wyoming and the others from Central Nebraska. Anyone have any recommended ranches/hunts? I have...

    Youth only big game seasons

    My home state of Nebraska doesn't currently have any youth only big game seasons or hunts. In researching other states, I was able to find that Nebraska and Nevada are the only two states that do not offer some form of a youth only big game hunt. Some states offer state wide options for a...

    Son's first deer!

    My son Terin loves to hunt more than any other activity. He recently told me he would toss all of his games, toys, and whatever else if he could go on a deer hunt. So of course Santa delivered a new pair of binoculars, some other hunting gear, and his first ever deer permit. He was very...

    Gun Safe moving

    Any advice on how to move a gun safe across about 75 feet of lawn/frozen dirt and then through a privacy fence gate and into a set of french doors? I have a 48 gun safe in a garage that I want to move to an out building and have no idea how it should be done without killing one of my buddies...

    Sad reminder to always put safety first Several safety rules that were violated here. I figured posting this would hopefully serve as a reminder to someone out there to hopefully avoid a terrible accident in the future.

    WTB used left hand bow

    I'm trying to help get a young guy started into bow hunting but really don't want to pay for a new setup. He is 6' tall so will need an adult model. Anyone have one they are willing to part with?

    New Fire in SE Wyoming

    Any of you planning to hunt Wyoming elk area 110 / deer area 78 should monitor this fire. It started in a bad spot in my opinion. It has the potential to get big quick with the windy dry forecast.
