    How to get a Swarovski spotting scope for $100.

    My neighbor got his insurance company to buy him a hot tub for his back problems. All he had to do was to get his doctor to write out a prescription for it. And we wonder why our insurance rates are so high

    Please critique my caribou gear list

    I think that the thing with the pistol is that most of the time you don't pack your rifle everywhere you go, but if a pistol is strapped to your hip or under your shoulder then it goes along. Especially at night when nature calls and you are outside of the tent doing your business or even if...

    Swarovski Spotter

    Just as a fyi if you see links such as these just click on the Report button in the lower left hand corner and one of the mods will take care of it. I did and it looks like the poster and links are now gone.

    New regs are available

    No, unlike Utah you need a valid qualifying license to hunt and not just the tag. In Utah you only need the license for the application.

    I did make a mistake in my first post. Where I said that the hunt numbers have changed I was wrong. They now have a multi season deer tag for certain units that you can apply for which uses different numbers for that hunt

    New regs are available

    I glanced through it today and skimmed over the new rules. The secondary draw will be interesting but not much different than the old one except that anyone can enter it. But why would you skip the first draw even if just for a point just to put in for the second draw? Also for us old farts...

    Question About Hunting in Africa

    A lot of new converts to hunting Africa only bring back euro mounts and perhaps one cape for a shoulder mount which cuts the price way down. On my African hunt I brought home 5 trophies for shoulder mounts and had one euro done there. My hunt cost $7000 and by the time I was done I was into...

    Now the Russians are interfering with the forum here. I knew that we shouldn't be putting up all those political jokes

    Question About Hunting in Africa

    It all depends on how much you are bringing home. First there are the dip and pack fees to make sure that there are no bugs. Then you have the crating fee, around 15% of the dip and pack. Now you have them in the crate and need a shipping company to get it to the airline Five years ago I...

    2020 Javelina Hunt

    Our 2020 javelina hunt started out like all the others for the last 26 years. A very long drive down to either Oracle or Catalina Arizona but the last 10 or so were broken up with a stay at some friends down in Mesa, Arizona. There we caught up on old times and harvested a box full of oranges...

    2020 Javelina Hunt

    We are now done and sucking down a few cold ones. One tag out of two went unfilled but we gave it 100%. It seams that when the cards are stacked against you there isn't anything that you can do. This morning we had 8 javelina run across the wash right in front of us as we were headed up...

    2020 Javelina Hunt

    8 days down and 2 to go. Hunting has been a little rough but we hot one on Thursday and have 2 more days to find the second one. All my pictures are on a camera and not my phone so you'll have to wait for them. We've had temperatures from 31 up to 72. We had a downpour of rain Wednesday...

    Wyoming bison

    A friend drew and he hired a guide. Once he shot his bison they tied it to some horse and dragged it to a area to process it. He used a 454 Causiul to shoot it

    Oregon/Canada Vacation Ideas

    Can't help you much but remember that if you want to enter Canada now everyone needs a passport. It doesn't need to be the standard one but the one the size of a credit card will work.

    6.5 PRC

    We had this same discussion over on another forum and came to the conclusion that the 6.5 PRC will do everything that a 6.5 Creed will and better. It would be best to compare it to the 6.5-284 Norma which is almost its ballistic twin. The increase velocity of around 250 fps will put it up into...
