    New to muzzleloader

    There are a lot of fantastic muzzleloaders out there for a good value. I won’t give an opinion other than my TC Pro Hunter has been fantastic. I will also agree with using Blackhorn. Using loose powder really isn’t an issue if you pre-load your powder charges into little vials; it’s even faster...

    RBG dead at 87!

    Here’s my take: -We all expected RBG to die or retire during Trump presidency so everyone should take a deep breath. No surprises here. -I can’t imagine any changes happening in abortion issues. -The shit show related to SC nominees has been a long and classless saga since at least Clarence...

    MeatEater *Spoilers

    That’s my subtle point. No one should shy away from archery or MZL hunting opportunities because of lethality concerns. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ouch. I’d hate to hear what you think of bowhunting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Good places to buy from

    HARD DISAGREE I never dealt with Cody, but my single experience with GoHunt on an optics purchase was the absolute opposite experience. This was in 2019. They made one of the dumbest CS decisions I’ve ever seen and I got screwed because they wanted to save $30 over a pricing error they made...

    Budget pants

    I have been hunting with solid pants since last spring. I don’t have an unlimited travel and tag budget so saving on clothing helps. I have been using Wrangler and Eddie Bauer guide pants. Both have been great. Way better than less expensive camo pants I have previously owned. I can wear solids...

    politics in clothing, WHY?

    I’d be interested to hear if their P.R. person “denies the science” of gender biology. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Where’s the stickers at?

    Ha. I was actually shopping for skateboard stickers the other day to camouflage my gun case with. I especially avoid firearm related stickers line the plague. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Please talk to your older family members!

    This is a great PSA!! My grandmother, who we thought was doing just fine upstairs, fell for a scam last year. It’s the common one that goes like this: “Hello, this is the Tijuana Police Dept, and we have your grandson Jimbo here. Jimbo was arrested for something very minor and cannot bond out...

    Cleaning Muzzleloader Before Hunting

    All, I had this same question when I started using BH209 last year so I called them directly. I spoke to their engineer (?) who told me it’s fine to not clean for a week or two. O.P.’s question is going to fall into the gray area. I wouldn’t chance ruining your gun over it. My solution would...

    Grocery store before the hunt

    What’s on your pre-hunting trip grocery list? What’s the stuff you pick up at your everyday grocery store that’s not special order or backpacking specific? I’m looking for something that has maybe become a tradition or ingredients that eliminate the boring Cliff Bars, but can still be...

    Pre hunt recovery

    I have been thinking about the same thing. My year-round workout I enjoy most is road cycling. I notice a difference when I come back from 4-5 days off and I’m riding with my buddies who didn’t take a break. When I am fresh I perform noticeably better than them. In the overall scheme of things...
