    Checking wind conditions before range session

    I use Windy.com It's a great reference especially if you are going to sight in your rifles. You can click the exact spot on the map where you are going to shoot. In the tool bar, you can drag the day/time and hour, and check the wind conditions during the timeframe you want to shoot. I use...

    Question For Chukar Hunters

    How do you keep your dog's feet in good condition during the season? My GSPs front pads get chewed up after each hunt, not terribly, but enough so that I'll give her a 2 week break before we head out again. She is young and runs hard. She hasn't learned, yet, to pace herself. I think that's...

    Mossy Oak Song (pass it on) Tracy Byrd

    This is an older song but for the life of me I can't find a download anywhere online. I can watch the video/song on Youtube. I'm taking my boy hunting and I'm putting together a Hunting Playlist for the drive. Maybe Mossy Oak didn't release the rights to the song. I checked all downloadable...

    Son's first WTD hunt (Idaho GMU 10A, 16)

    I never ask for assistance with hunt locations; however, this is my son's first big game hunt and I would like to put him in a good general location. He has a late October B-Day so I am limited to WTD and for this reason I need some help. I have never hunted WTD, only Mule deer, so this is new...

    Hunting Dog Name

    I'm getting a female GSP for bird hunting (grouse, chukar, pheasant). We have a few names picked out (Boots, Aspen, Scout, Jaeger, Stella, Kona, Brook). We like the name Scout but seems close to the command sit. Boots just sound good vocally especially when in the field. I read some owners...

    WTS Vortex Viper HD 10x42

    Vortex Viper HD 10x42. Purchased in summer 2017. My daughter used them once for elk hunting this past season. Unfortunately, she doesn't seem overly interested in going again. Instead of hanging on to them I've decided to let them go. I don't need a 2nd pair. These binoculars are in perfect...

    MT Points

    I have no points but want to start accumulating. Is it as easy as apply for license and pay for 1 point. Do I have to apply for a specific hunt? Get license fees back if not drawn (my understanding). Thanks

    WTS Vortex Razor 11-33x50

    I have owned the scope for one year. I'm the original owner. I'm only selling the scope because I haven't used the scope in the field since I bought it. I've decided to part ways and use the money for my kids hunting gear. Perfect condition. Ocular and objective lenses have no defects. Tiny...

    Which Dog Breed For My Needs

    Starting to research dogs for upland game hunting (Blue Grouse, Ruffed Grouse, stocked Pheasants, possible Quail, possible Chucker). May do do some waterfowl hunting (ducks) but likely not a lot. Looking at GSP vs. Lab. I plan on putting the dog in formal gun/hunting training. I tried to...

    Narrow Mountain Roads

    I was driving this weekend on a NARROW mountain road. Steep slope to my left and drop off (cliff) to the right. Wide sections or turnouts were few and FAR between. I was hoping another truck wouldn't come my way. Thankfully no one did. What do you do in the scenario when another vehicle...

    FHF Bino Harness

    I just received a FHF Bino Harness size medium. Small, compact, to the point. However, the side pockets are small and I can't even fit my windicator in them. For those who are running a FHF Bino Harness what are you using the side pockets for? I want to like this harness but the pockets are...

    Sleeping Bag Liner

    Has anyone used a sleeping bag liner? I have a 15-20 degree bag and I'm considering adding a liner vs getting a bag with a better rating. I've seen liners which claim 5-6 degrees up to 25 degrees increase in warmth. Anyone have experience with the accuracy of these claims? How easy is it to...

    Still hunting

    When still hunting Mule deer how slow do you go? I usually walk 7 steps or so, stop, give a really good look all around before moving again. I was never taught so I'm interested in how others approach this hunting method.

    Bino Harness

    I've been looking at getting a bino harness. Getting tired of my binos bouncing around when I'm in the woods. Based on research, I have it narrowed down to FHF, Kuiu, and AGC. Vortex for 2016 has their version of the FHF and AGC bino harness backed by their VIP warranty. For all practical...
