    AK Spring Grizzly

    I have sat here jealous of you, that is a great bear. I had a chance up in BC and only saw one grizzly in 10 days and he was a little too far away for a shot. That was my chance at one, that is unless I hit the lotto.

    What Makes A Big Mule Deer?????

    I like heavy square heavy antlers that are at least 28 inches wide the height takes care of itself. In 50 years of hunting them I have seen a dozen or so of them that meet that standard and have only been able to think about shooting a couple of them. One was over a mile away and another one...

    .380 Trail Protection / Bear Load?

    In my book the minimum for bear protection is a 357 magnum with heavy loads. While the 9mm might kill a bear you are more likely to piss them off, and a 380 is even lighter than a 9mm. You would be better off just scaring it with a 380 by shooting up onto the air than at a bear. I would...

    Which state has the best opportunities and draw odds for Resident Hunters

    Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and perhaps New Mexico but I don't have any experience with New Mexico. At least for western states. But if you really want to know the best state would be Alaska.

    Not many deer on scouting trip

    With the heat they could be back onto the cooler area shortly after sunrise. I had a muzzle loader tag in the Utah Book Cliffs a few years ago and it was hot. The deer were back in their beds as soon as the sun hit the hillside and they didn't come back out until it was behind the hill in the...
