    More wall art!

    I was able to pick up my mount from last year and put it next to my 2020 deer. Post COVID has been good for whitetails, now to start planning to use Wy and Co points for Muley’s and elk!

    Gun/scope combo

    I just pulled the trigger on a Tikka 300 t3x win. mag and couldn’t make up my mind on scope. I ended up getting a vortex viper 6.5x20x50. I’m guessing most say too much scope but it was also a deal I couldn’t pass up. It was under $400. Thoughts? Opinions?

    You know it's a bad day when....

    You go to the neurosurgeon and they say you need a fusion rather quickly, then go for an MRI on your shoulder 3 hours later and have a torn rotator cuff and labrum and then see that Irma is coming right for you! Things happen in threes!

    Ohio muzzy trip

    I had a chance to go to Ohio over the weekend for a quick muzzy hunt and was able to accomplish my mission of putting some meat in the freezer. Despite a little string of bad luck, I was still able to get it done. I sat on the field edge where I shot a doe last year and had two deer with a dog...

    Processing question

    I was wondering if anyone could help with advice on whether or not I can thaw out meat, grind it, and then refreeze the ground venison? I took a doe to the processor the other night only to find out she had the flu and was not doing anymore processing this year. That left me skinning...

    Antelope mount regret question

    A few years back I got an antelope with my bow in Wyoming and thought long and hard about getting it mounted but decided not to. Of course now I'm kicking myself in the rear after seeing some of these mounts. It wasn't big by any means but it was my first western kill. Might be a silly...

    Upgrading my optics

    I am looking at purchasing a spotting scope this year and potentially upgrading my Monarch 3 10 x 42 Binos. I've read through a lot of the opinions and I guess I wanted to beat this horse a little bit more. My monarchs have done me well sitting in a blind antelope hunting a few years ago and...
