Re: GoPro Mount for Matrix 355

I bought the GoPro Sportsman mount at Cabela's but I wouldn't recommend that. It's a lot cheaper at Walmart.

I like it.

Re: Human Scents scares deer - old wives tale???

Thank you for that observation. I went hunting with my dad several years ago. It was in early January during our late archery/flintlock season so it was COLD. It was a very crisp morning. Eventually I made my way over to his stand, crawled up and sat down with him. He lit up a smoke and the smoke wa...

Re: My Friend Got Chewed by a Grizzly!

I read that story and watched the video. That's some pretty amazing stuff. I was surprised that he didn't pull his gun until after the second attack when he realized that if she attacked him again he might not make it. He literally took two attacks before deciding maybe it's time to pull the gun to ...

I'm assuming that she wasn't present, or at least didn't read this, when you posted it. :lol:

Re: Is this a shooter?

I'd have to let him walk, there's obviously a genetic defect going on with him. I'll bet that the meat is tainted also. Better let that one be.

By the way, where is he located so I don't accidentally shoot him from PA?

Article: Dealing With A Hunting Buddies Unexpected Death

We're all tough to a certain extent whether we talk about things openly or hold things in until something within us breaks due to the strain. I found this article and thought that it'd be a good read for all. Here's to enjoying another hunting season with our closest family and friends. http://www.f...

Re: Those with the grizzly what is your set up?

I use 18" Spynal Tapp's with either 100gr Slick Tricks, 100gr Ramcats, 100gr Phat Heads, or 145gr Phat Heads.

Last year I had a complete pass through with the Tapp's using the 100gr Slick Trick at 40 yards.

I haven't chosen my setup for this season yet.

He sounds like an amazing person who would have been great to listen to around the campfire. May his skies always be blue and his elk a minimum of 6x6.

Re: personal bucket list and being careful

That certainly is sad news. But let's be honest, what a way to go. At least it wasn't behind some desk in a stuffy office. Living the dream and passing in your sleep. He certainly was a blessed man. I'm sure that he was an amazing person and will be sorely missed. Prayers to his family and friends. ...

Re: Heading Out Tomorrow with Oldest Son

Wown Anthony, that sounds like a great day! How blessed your family is. A doe harvested, a nice buck seen, and they ALLOWED you to pay for gas and buy brunch, it just doesn't get any better than that.

Good luck finding your knives and tools. It sounds like it was quite the production. Lol

Re: Heading Out Tomorrow with Oldest Son

I think that another Excalibur as well as another handgun is in order. You have to start these kids off right Nonno. You better get yourself a Dillon press and start reloading now for that child. :lol:
