    That was pretty awesome! Congratulations Dan! I thought for a minute at the end we weren't going to see Dan take the plunge - but he didn't disappoint!

    The Lightest Weatherby Rifle Ever

    I bought a model 700 Remington Special in 300 Weatherby back in 1988 I think it was. Cost me around $400. I saw this video and it got me curious - so I looked it up on $3200 and some change. Really nice gun, but I think I'll carry the extra 3-4 pounds for a while longer.

    What no hunter wants to see

    I had to learn everything about hunting from magazines or the school of hard knocks because my father didn't hunt and my grandfather, who was a game warden, died of a heart attach on the job when I was 4 years old. So, needless to say, my beginning years were pretty rough - but I loved it so...

    Sad story but a hell of a way to go.

    I'm with you Dan. I watched my father wither away from cancer at the age of 57. My lifestyle is different than his so I'm hoping I don't have the same fate. I've said many times - if I can live to be 75 and die on top of a mountain watching the sun come up - I'm good. Don't come looking for me -...

    GETTIN OLD.......

    I was thinking about this post this morning while I was at the gym. I was a tall, skinny kid growing up. Lived in the country and had to ride my bike anywhere I needed to go. I loved football and baseball. My mother wouldn't let me play football because she was afraid I'd get hurt. I thought my...

    Fall Color

    So awesome! Thanks for posting CC. I always enjoy what you have to share! I thought I would also let you know how you inspire me. I'm 52 years old and put in for points in most states. Once in a while I'll question if I should still put in for those species that take 20 plus points when I'm...

    Do elk bugle much in SW Montana - units 314/360/362????

    Hey Guys, Heading to SW Montana in a week to archery hunt elk with my son, who moved out there 2 years ago. He's telling me he doesn't think the elk bugle much in the units we plan to hunt. While I haven't hunted there before, I hunted a unit in Wyoming last year on a limited draw tag that...
