That's good to know! I am going to be going some traveling with it this year. Thanks for the heads up!I have a pelican case I travel with. Its pretty tough. TSA jerk-wads put 10 super nice deep scratches on it during my trip to Maine.....looks like it got stuck in the landing gear...
ALSO TAKE NOT TO PEOPLE FLYING:
Anyone flying with a gun case better make sure to put 2 locks on their case.....they made me buy pad locks from their gift shop to my on the case because they said "We can get the guns out of there. I looked right at them and asked them to try....because I would like to see it....He then pulled me aside and said he argued with "his boss" for me but he wasn't having it so if I wanted to take guns with me I had better get the locks...I could literally cut the $15 locks the sold me with my leatherman with 1 hand operating the tool...lol
How did we go from gun cases to winter feeding?I feel bad for the Elk because without the supplemental feeding, I fear there will be enough natural food for the elk to eat to survive the winter. Combine this with the way "we" utilize the lands surrounding these feed grounds (Cattle graze them off all summer, housing being built, fences, ect ect.) and its really not in their favor. These elk have become creatures of habit relying on this feed for the last 100 years.
Not a good situation. Either way, I dont have any say in it but it is a double edged sword for sure.
They used to have turkey feeding programs all over the mountains of PA back in the day (60,s 70's, 80's) when they had their big stocking programs. I remember seeing the corn feeders when I was young. They are almost all gone now just some remnants here and there of the old feeders. They ended the feeding program. Turkeys eventually stopped relying on them and moved to their natural patterns. But this isnt really comparing animals to animals.
Solid advice on the locks.I'm a little late to the game here, but I'm another vote for the Pelican 1750. I've been flying for four years now with mine and , aside from a few black conveyor scuffs, it's as tight and straight as the day I took it out of the box.
As for the TSA, some agents have required a lock in every hole while others thought that just two was sufficient. I have four keyed alike Master Locks, and multiple copies of the key. I keep a key in my wallet and another in my carry on bag, in addition to the one on my key chain. Two locks go on the case and two go inside. When they inspect the case, if they want all four, it's easy enough to abide.
ALSO: VERY IMPORTANT! Use locks with the shortest possible shanks that work. The junctions on conveyors have a habit of grabbing and eating locks with longer shanks. They will rip them right through the case.
