LOL! You aint from around here (FL). What happens if they say crocs?
OP - I wouldn't take it personal. Probably just a screening question. Hiring folks is tedious work and takes him away from his everyday duties that need to get done anyway.
What folks never think about is having a...
There are plenty of ladder stand options - just get one without arm rests and practice shooting out of it.
You may need to silence the stand - put it together and see what you can do and what noises it makes.
I prefer ladders myself. Just easier.
LOL! It's Alaska for you need a .338 or whatever you shoot won't die. Just poking.
You make a point that a lot of guys can't shoot worth a hoot - so they need a bigger gun. Black bears aren't big or armor plated but folks do make bad shots during the heat of the moment.
Guy doesn't feel...
I think Nosler makes a 125 grain partition for 6.5. Almost bought one because of that. Would be about a perfect setup for down here in the south. Bought a 350 Legend instead cause 99.9% of my shooting is inside 250 yards. Really like it too.
Anyway, a soft long range bullet can't hold...
Funny how folks think any bear or hog is equivalent to a russian tank. Poke a hole thru the ribs and it dies. Crazy how that works. Bears and hogs die very quickly to good shots.
The 7-08 will do just fine.
Same here - I use em for filleting fish and processing cows or game.
I have the rubberized ones too - did cut the finger tip off one once while cutting something - I knew what was happening and it didn't get my finger. Not sure you could do that with one of the fish gloves.
8 guys on 500 acres is a bit crowded. $1,200 x 8 = $9,600 for the lease. It is probably antler restricted and in an area with decent bucks - if you can squeeze out one of the travel route spots, you'll see a bunch of deer during the rut.
We had 3 guys on 500 acres, about $3,600. Also in...
