    Why do we burry our poop?

    The military taught us that the main purpose is to prevent flies and other insects from crawling around in shit then landing on your food or water sources, spreading disease. Don't be a "Surface Shitter" :)

    Underwear- What, how many, how many days.... TP, Handi Wipes or Paper Towels....

    Right side, wrong side, inside, outside. :) I pregame by greasing up with Boudreaux's Butt Paste, this stuff really helps with crotch rot. I only pack one extra pair no matter how long I'm out. One roll of TP and a few baby wipes that have been allowed to dry out.

    Muzzle break for a pencil thin barrel? Worth it or not?

    2 lost elk and conclusions.

    So, I did not wade through all the prior pages, but I did see a youtube video of a Guy using a drone with thermal imagining to recover lost deer. I know that some states may have laws against this, but the video is impressive. 250 bucks to look and 350 if he finds it. I would guess that the look...

    First Mule Deer Hunt

    Well, the Lord was not willing. Got horribly sick a few days before I was to drive up. 5 solid days of vomiting, chills, sweats and repeat. Lost over 20lbs in a week.

    Big Kodak Bear or Kamchatka Bear calibers

    Hard to beat the 375H&H for dangerous game,, flat shooting, hard hitting and the shoulder design makes them feed reliably. Also ammo is widely available if needed to replace lost ammo.

    How far to count rings w/ Swaro 95?

    I own both and the 65 has not left the safe in years, the 95 is simply incredible. Worth the weight for me,, range depends on light, weather. haze , mirage, but in the right conditions you can really pick out details.
