    Decided on Caliber - Now need to decide on Rifle

    If you want one rifle for you and your wife to both use, there is a good chance that the length of pull will not fit one of you. If the compact/youth type stocks fit your wife best, then a Sims slip on pad might lengthen it enough to fit you fine. BTW — Bonecollector almost makes me ashamed to...

    Tag Soup 2019

    I made two trips to Idaho this fall. I had a mountain lion tag, a wolf tag, and a predator call in my pocket on both trips. No predators were harmed so both tags remain in pristine condition.

    Animals in Packs!

    When I upgraded from an Army plywood packboard to a Camp Trails freighter frame, I thought I had reached the pinnacle of meat packing. It took me over 20 years to move on from the freighter frame.

    Animals in Packs!

    This was my college roommate’s first (and only) elk. It was only about 300 yards below the road. He didn’t have much packing experience at the time, and the pack was as heavy or heavier than he was. When he stopped to rest the weight on a stump, my brother and I warned him not to lean back...

    Animals in Packs!

    This was a long time ago, and I was just providing moral support. Edit - swapped photos for one that was less fuzzy.

    Idaho Trophy Species Draw Results

    I am not sure how much he weighed. He was bigger than any whitetail buck I have shot and at least as big as the only mule deer I have taken. The head/cape “felt” like it weighed at least 100 pounds as I crawled up the hill with it 😀. Of course, it didn’t weigh that much.

    Idaho Trophy Species Draw Results

    The Nigerian prince never came through with the funds for 15x Swarovskis so I had to make do with my 10x Cabelas Euro binos. I got a nine year old ram on my ninth day of hunting (second day of second trip). We had 90 degree weather on the first trip and went through snow on the second. The shot...

    Dwight Schuh frame - the rig that will not die.....

    I had what I think was a Coleman made Dwight Schuh hunting pack in the early 80s. I was hunting in northern Idaho at the time, and because of how brushy it is there, I really liked the fleece bags and the low profile (the top sat just below my shoulders). My friend found its limit when I lent...
