    Eastmans' in Colorado?

    I spent 11 points last year for a unit that has about 50/50 public vs private land. Ended up finding an 84" buck a few weeks before the season opener and punched my tag opening morning. But, it was a grind and I spent a ton of time and rolled the tires to find him. Planning on burning 8...

    April 7...Decision Day

    Maybe this is my year for a desert sheep, moose or mtn goat! It should be my year for a 4th season buck tag.

    2020 AZ Draw Results Countdown

    Is anyone still having issues logging into the AZGF website? I heard it went down last week, and have not been able to access the portal. I've tried resetting my password, but can't seem to receive the email to do that even. Just curious if it was a "me only" issue. Thanks, Graybird

    Reloder-16, Reloder-22, Reloder-26 Q&A

    Prerylyon, Based upon the ladder data you posted, I would look specifically in the 52.6 to 53.2 gr. I assume you conducted the ladder test to determine a potential accuracy node and I believe with the data provided, that's where you should find an accurate load. Good luck!

    .264 Win Mag on Elk

    Agreed, the old NP has put a lot of meat in freezers. I've tried them in multiple rifles and calibers and still struggle to find desired accuracy with them. I've found accuracy much easier with the Barnes TSX/TTSX and more recently LRX, which I'm switching most of my rifles to. Good luck!

    .264 Win Mag on Elk

    Perhaps a better bullet than a Berger should be considered?

    2019 = 160+ inches

    I have both capes in the freezer. My wife is going to kill me for dragging not one, but two more mounts home. ;) Thinking about a way to display them together but also the option to separate them, too.

    2019 = 160+ inches

    I couldn't be more satisfied with my 2019 antelope tags. And, yeah, there is something magical about my little elk friend!!! ;)

    2019 = 160+ inches

    The 2019 draws brought me a couple of antelope tags. I knew I was in good shape to draw my desired Colorado antelope unit with 11 points, but was surprised to learn I'd drawn my first choice Nevada antelope unit with only 8 points. With new job responsibilities and an extremely busy summer...

    2019 NW Colorado Archery Muzzleloader Report

    I'm an Oklahoma State fan and have become a de facto Steelers fan with the addition of Mason Rudolf and James Washington. That #11 couldn't catch a pass if his life depended upon it!!!

    .264 Win Mag on Elk

    I have a very similar cartridge in a custom 6.5x68mm with a 25" Kreiger barrel. For all intents and purposes, the 6.5x68 is a ballistic equivalent cartridge to the 264 WM, but gains an extra 100-200 fps with similar bullets. My current load in the 6.5x68 is using a 127 gr Barnes LRX bullet at...

    Case Cleaning 2019

    Not sure when, but several years ago, I went to wet tumbling with stainless steel pins and haven't looked back. It'll be the only way I clean brass going forward. Warm water, a couple tablespoons of dish soap and a dash of Lemonshine and let it rock for about 3 hrs. Spotless brass every time.

    Antelope movement after dark

    It's been my experience that they don't move at night much. Nothing like deer or elk. They are typically about where you left them in the morning.
