    Streep typical “age and score” thread

    He's a pretty deer. I like the symmetrical typical bucks. Looks like good genetics around there.

    Odd question was asked before setting up a interview from a manager?

    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...

    Ladder stand for bow hunting

    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.

    7mm-08 for Alaska Bear

    Get on their good side? Tell em they'll get an extra $500 if they can put you on a decent bear at a reasonable range. They'll make it happen.

    7mm-08 for Alaska Bear

    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...

    Best 6.5 hunting bullet

    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...

    7mm-08 for Alaska Bear

    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.

    .223 for bear, deer, elk and moose.

    Most folks yip and yap about stuff we/they have no business talking about. Gotta admit that it happens way more than it should.

    Cheap Stuff that Works

    I like the $5 pull thru sharpeners from Walmart, think they are made by Smiths. Good for touching up a blade.

    .30-'06 and .308.

    308 is almost a 30-06 and is a fine rifle.

    Is classic hunting bolt action rifle dead or?

    A nice blue and wood bolt is the classic gun. As is a sxs double. IMO anyway.

    Preventing Knife Cuts in the Field

    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.

    Does a cot help side sleepers

    Cots are tough - some are comfy and most are too tight and hard. Pads help. Might bring an air mattress and sleep on that.

    Why does anyone lease hunting land

    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...
