    How to get a Swarovski spotting scope for $100.

    FYI...I explained that I needed a Swarovski spotter because of an astigmatism and my insurance covered it, co-pay was $100. I'm arguing the tripod is an orthopedic device and I think I'll get it.

    AustriAlpin Review: Awesome

    Like most of you, I like DIY. I decided to upgrade my 20 year old Dwight Shuh Fieldline pack (god forbid I buy a new pack) and came upon AustriAlpin. Game changer. I ordered a discounted 2" Cobra buckle and slapped it on my hipbelt. These buckles are used in the millitary and simply will not...

    The Ultimate Hunter

    Take time this winter to try and go listen to a pack of hounds in full cry. This little hound will always be the ultimate hunter: snow, ice, rain, dry ground, cold-track, sight chase, none of it mattered - she kept a crock pot filled with hare for 10 years, I'd estimate +800 hare were gunned...

    Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

    If you've never donated to RMEF, you should consider it, you'll feel better and you'll enjoy your elk hunting even more.

    Rangefinder not required.

    RESPECT 25 days into his hunt, Fred Bear did this. Shooting a white animal amongst a sea of white without a sight, wrap your mind around that.

    Dwight Schuh frame - the rig that will not die.....

    Going on 15 years and over a ton of freighted venison on the Dwight Schuh-Fieldline frame. If you ever see one for sale buy it.

    Zamberlan Tofane: Year 3

    Year 3 in Zamberlan Tofanes. About to order another back-up pair in case production moves out of Italy. A little elk blood on them just adds to the legacy. Greatest boot I've ever worn.

    Whitetail Cull

    Doing my best to rid the west of whitetails, one tag at a time. Barnes TTSX 168 gr continues to impress.

    The King Bolete

    This has been a great year for foraging the Cascades, some of the largest king boletes yet. The orange mushroom is 'Chicken of the Woods' and you'll see them growing on trees, neglected by people who have no idea they are good eating.

    Sheep Hunting Ends in Hart Mountain

    ODFW is cancelling future sheep hunts in Hart Mountain. Mountain lions continue to devastate this population of isolated sheep and 5 collared rams were confirmed killed by mountain lions this year. If only Oregon valued its ungulates half as much as salmon. Anyhow, you can still go soak in...

    Number of WY applicants....

    The increase in applicants is staggering, all good things must come to an end. Good luck to all who have a coveted tag in their pocket!

    Results are in and.........

    Checking ODFW for results is like checking C-SPAN for intelligent life. Unsuccessful for goat-sheep-antlerless deer-pronghorn-elk-mule deer - the fishing is superb though!

    What Have You Done to Your Rig?

    Who is working on their rig? I just put Old Man Emu Dakar leaf springs-bushings on my 1st Gen Tacoma. Running old shackles. The difference is incredible and I have my 1.5" rake back. The leafs come shimmed to avoid squeak. Also put on an extended braided brake line. These springs give 2.5"...

    latest carving

    My latest carving: 17" male Salvelinus fontinalis. This is an actual trout I caught in the Cascades, measured down to the very shape of the caudal fin and spacing of the eyes and adipose fin. Carved in a more muted configuration without a kype or wild spawning colours. By the end of the week...
