    Muzzy Powder Accuracy

    We were fortunate enough to draw CO deer again this year for Muzzy. Last year was my first year shooting a muzzy and had a good time, but think I can improve on some things. Question 1: How do ya'll measure your loose powder for your Muzzy? I did by volume last year, but am wondering if by...

    Selling Kuiu Attack and Guide Pants

    Selling my used Kuiu guide and attack pants. Nothing wrong with them except that I've lost 25 pounds and even a belt won't keep them on anymore. Guides are a 34 and are a year newer than the Attack pants which are a size 36. The Attack pants show a little more wear than the Guides as I wore...

    2018 KS Buck

    Got it done in Kansas this year! Didn't have a lot of time to hunt with the bow, but had a great opportunity on a mature deer. He came in at an angle I couldn't get a shot, got too close where I couldn't actually shoot him right under me], worked a scrape right under my stand, hung out for a...

    CO Muzzy Help

    I'm a first time muzzy hunter heading to Colorado this year for deer. I have a TC Triumph that I'll be using. Couple questions... 1. Is it worth upgrading sights? Are fiber optics going to be good enough for deer at 100-150 yards? 2. What type of powder, bullet, and primer combo would you...

    2018 Colorado Backdoor

    I know it's a little early, but has anyone seen anything on a Colorado backdoor again this year? With the online system change I would guess it would have to be a new way of finding a glitch or are we just going to have to wait and try to be as patient as possible?

    Arrow weight and velocities with elk

    Just bought the 2017 Hoyt Carbon Defiant 34 on sale (never seen bows go on sale). I'm able to keep my current arrows which are 501 grain FMJs. I'm dropping about 10 fps with the new bow vs my old. I'm debating on whether to go down to an Axis arrow or similar, put a brass 50 gr insert in it...

    Trekking Pole Help

    I'm looking into getting some trekking poles this year. After reading about them and having a buddy have them on a hunt last year I think I want to give them a try. A couple questions, what style does everyone like (sections that slide within each other with adjustable tabs or the interlocking...

    DIY dehydrated meals

    Hey guys, I'd rather learn from other folks' successes and failures that experiment totally on my own. I bought a dehydrator and vacuum sealer to start making my own backpacking meals for scouting/hunting. Mountain House didn't sit too well with me, but I know my wife's cooking does! What are...

    Pretty funny stuff

    Here is an email I got today... no idea if it's true, but still pretty funny and definitely speaks to the pain of trying to hunt these days. Anyone who has bought and then tried to use a hunting license will appreciate this amusing story as well as a perfect reply to an over-reaching...

    How do you grind your burger?

    Hey everyone, I set myself up to process my own deer this year after several years of wanting to. Just got finished doing about 80 pounds from the deer this year, which went rather smoothly for my first time if I say so myself. I do have one question, the texture of the meat is a little off...

    Gaia GPS Topo Map App

    My buddy pointed out an app for an iPhone that has a bunch of maps and tracking stuff built into it. It costs $20 and is called GAIA GPS: Topo Maps and Trails for Offline Hiking. It has a ton of topos, so now maybe a guy wouldn't necessarily need a bunch of paper maps to take with him. I'm...

    Nemo Hornet 2P Tent

    Anyone ever used one of these or know someone who has? This thing is super light. A little smaller than most 2P tents, but double vestibules and right at 2 pounds is really really tempting.

    CO Above Timber Muzzy

    Anyone done any muzzy hunting in Colorado above timber for deer? The unit I want to archery hunt will take at least 1 point as a NR to draw, but has a decent chance to draw as second choice for muzzy. Are the deer still up high during muzzy season? I'm assuming it depends on what the weather has...

    KS Rifle Success

    Well, this year my uncle, cousin, and a buddy came out to Kansas to hunt Whitetail for the first time with me. They intended on staying 5 days, but unforeseen circumstances had their trip cut short before they even got here. Season opened on Wednesday and they had to leave Saturday morning at...

    KS Whitetail

    Well, got my 2016 buck Saturday night. He was rutting and chasing deer for 30-45 minutes before he offered me a shot. He came under my stand at a maximum of 2 yards, then chased deer in front of it allowing me to draw 4 times before he stood still long enough for me to execute a shot. Guessed...

    DeLorme InReach

    Anyone use the DeLorme InReach SE or Explorer? Thinking about getting the explorer but have some hesitations. Anyone know how good the GPS functionality is for navigation? Doesn't look like you can see topo on the unit itself and have to use a cell phone? I currently have a Garmin GPS I...
