    Replacing a recoil pad

    That should be a Supercell pad #19484, that originally came on it which has two screws, one at the top and one at the bottom.

    PSA... Optics Planet

    Weird, I haven't ever had a problem ordering from them before. My last order was a trigger, which I received, but I did also receive some anti walk pins for an AR which I did not order. They made sure I hadn't been charged for them, apologized and told me to keep them.

    Kifaru super tents

    I've never used one on a sheep hunt, but it has worked well for me. Pretty lightweight, ample room for one with gear, you can put two with gear but it will be tight and a pain to get inand out, easy to set up and take down. I do prefer the Mega just because it carries its height the whole...

    What are your thoughts on the Kung Flu?

    With roughly a 2% death rate it is far more deadly than the flu which stands somewhere around .09%. The two are not comparable.

    Best Mule Deer Rifle

    My preference would be the 243.

    Need a new wallet

    Magpul Essential Wallet, not leather but works well.

    ASAT Camo still relevant?

    ASAT works very well. It is my preferred camo.

    Glass vs contacts while hunting and scouting

    Those seem like a pretty good option. Where did you pick those up? Esse quam videri

    Just thought was worth sharing

    It might help to look at things they put money into.

    Havalon dropping blades

    In breaking down well over 250 game animals I have never experienced this issue. A call to Havalon seems like a legit step. Esse quam videri

    Long range rifle caliber for elk and whitetail

    Personal experience would be that 30-06 or 6.5 Creedmoor will work well. My thoughts are that there a lot of other calibers that would work just fine.

    Savage 110 Storm Lightweight

    I've never had a Savage that didn't shoot well. Started buying in the late 80's I believe, as they were about the only affordable option in a left hand version. As to reliability, I've never had one break and I have used several all over this nation and a couple other countries. I'm pretty sure...

    Monopod, Bipod, Tripod...

    Tripod is the steadiest, the trigger stick seems to work pretty well, and works for a spotter. I've used two hiking sticks in the shape of an X for years with good results as well.

    Thank you Randy Newberg /gutless method.

    I haven't gutted a deer in years. I joined a lease this past year, and a member is extremely upset that I use the gutless method. He has insisted that a person cannot get all of the meat despite agreeing I got all of the meat from the last two kills he saw. Weird, but true.
