    Hanging Elk on Fireplace

    I am a General Contractor and own a construction company. I also have my European Moose Mount (65" wide spread so its heavy) over my own fire place. If you do not put backing behind the masonry to hold the anchor you should not expect decorative wall masonry to hold the anchor in place. You...

    Jim Shockey on Border Closure

    The analogy he gave had to do with the Covid effect on border opening in general with regards to Canadian outfitters and American Hunters. I didn't read his analogy to be based on what Shockey said. I think we can all agree that what Shockey said isn't entirely factual and its completely...

    Jim Shockey on Border Closure

    This is an excellent analogy. You can't blame the taxidermist for the tornado and you can't blame the outfitter for Covid. On a side note regarding Jim Shockey, I think he's dramatizing his end of this. Jim doesn't even run his operation. His partner does. He just flies in for the...

    Jim Shockey on Border Closure

    So I'm in the middle of this crap now. I went to the Yukon to hunt Moose in 2018. Had a great successful hunt with a very reputable and respected outfitter whose land is literally north adjacent of Shockey's. At the end of that hunt I gave a big tip and booked a 2020 sheep hunt. Covid hits...

    What’s the gnarliest situation you’ve been in while hunting?

    My dog slid off the wet deck of my skiff right next to a wounded 10' alligator in 10' of water so I jumped in after him. Held the gator's tail with a death grip of one arm while I grabbed the dogs collar with the other hand and screaming at my friend to shoot the gator, which after what seemed...

    US Canada Border close to re-opening?!

    I'm reading over the last few days that this may actually happen particularly for those that have been vaccinated. I had a Dall Sheep hunt planned in the Yukon for 2020 that was moved to August of this year 2021. It's been completely touch and go thus far. Any of the Canadians on this board...

    A big elk....

    That many people are needed to circle a bull and keep it pinned down.

    A big elk....

    He didn’t sight in his own rifle. He was told to dial in the distance and “don’t think about it”.

    Auodad in Texas

    I haven't eaten Auodad but have heard similar tales. The reason why they say that the meat is garbage is because it is usually killed in hot temps and if you don't take the correct precautions, then you will harvest gamey meat. If you are a meat hunter and are not dry aging game meat then you...

    Physical preparation of my first sheep hunt.

    The guide carries the gun luckily. I just prefer he carry my gun and not his gun.

    Physical preparation of my first sheep hunt.

    I'm just looking for some solid advice from those that have done this a lot as to whether I am on the right track or not. This August I will be going on my first sheep hunt. Going for Dall in the Yukon on a 10 day hunt. I've been up there before to hunt other species as kind of prerequisite...

    Any old guys hunted Dall Sheep?

    I’m 47 and I’m going on my first Dall hunt in 2020. Age is a state of mind. Get in the best shape you can and like the other guy said, stay in year round condition. If your idea of training is sitting on the couch watching YouTube hunts, you won’t be ready. There are some good sheep/goat...
