Re: Heading Out...

Truck now re-packed for the return wander. Moose was a damn tough hunt under difficult conditions, resulting in the decision to pull the pin and wander on to more fruitful pursuits (dammit!). Happy my Buddy talked me into holding the muley effort for his zone, paid off with a rather handsome but str...

Re: Sighting scope

Here's what I did... will depend whether your scope has a Speed Ring on it or not whether it will work for you. Shoot at 20 yards using the 20 yard chevron (or crosshairs). Back out to 40 yards, aim at the target WITH THE SAME CROSSHAIR and shoot. At the 40 yard distance, hold the crosshairs where y...

When a Good Idea Goes Bad...

Funnier than funny... copied from another forum During this past Easter weekend visit from my four grandkids, it became clear that my two new dogs were in terror of them. My wife and I decided to try to remove their fear of small children. We came up with a great idea, an idea that came from our lov...

With the numbers of Good Deer they have, methinks you can look forward to many many more Great Seasons! :wink: Congratu...

Texas Sheriff Exam

A young Texan grew up wanting to be a lawman. He grew up big, 6' 2", strong as a longhorn and fast as mustang. He could shoot a bottle cap tossed in the air at 40 paces. When he finally came of age, he applied to where he had only dreamed of working: the East Texas Sheriff's Department. After a seri...

More Fun with Camo-Form

I've harbored a desire for a Ruger 10-22 ever since one of my college Buddies got one way back when. Fun little gun to shoot, reliable as all get out and Accurate to boot! So when one recently came up for sale at a decent price, I simply HAD to bite! LOL! The rifle came with the action and barrel ca...

Re: excaliburs ? what do you own & shoot

Ran with the Ibex derf mentioned above last season, and it served me well taking both a buck and doe whitetail. This year moved into an ExoMax. A tad heavier and a little more bow to move around in the bush, but Blistering Fast, and Very Accurate! Here's the bow in " Battle Dress " http://gallery.fi...
