    Michigan Bear hunting adventure

    I hadn't logged in here for quite awhile. Congratulating on your tag and good luck on the hunt. I'm booked in 2024 for the newberry unit myself. Will have more than 10 points then so hopefully enough as a non resident. Was born in the U.P. so that's where I wanted to hunt.

    Price of outfitted hunts

    On a different note due to something in a different thread. Although not a hard and fast rule I've found many of the more reputable outfits charge very little to no deposit. I've only got $500 in total for 4 people going to Hawaii. $100 for the bear hunt. And literally nothing but my word...

    Price of outfitted hunts

    Everything has gone way up but there's still deals to be had if you really research. But not elk or deer for the most part. West Texas aoudad for under 4k pretty easily. I just booked Hawaii in 2024 for unlimited axis and goats for $2500. But no food or lodging. But fairly reasonable on...

    Arctic Air ( Mike and Shiela Spisak ) & Outdoor International - Buyer Beware!

    Horrible report. I've been to Alaska 3 times now but my first trip was similar. Other than the fact I actually got to go. But thousands of dollars into a camping trip with a 15 minute plane ride wasn't what we expected. Arrowhead outfitters was run almost exactly the same at the time. But I...

    Mandatory CWD testing

    When the local game warden was checking us last year. He told us do it if we can but not to worry if it didn't get done. There is no real checking up on it and no punishment if you don't do it. They're just trying to get more people to do it. This was a year ago. Might be stricter now.

    Gun/scope combo

    I agree with the others. I had a 6x18 on my 300 for a few years. It was totally usable and I never lost a chance at an animal. But I found myself irritated at times with the small field of view when things were closer. I replaced it with a 4.5x14 that made just enough of a difference for me.
