    Any opinions on Vortex Vulture 15x56 binos

    They are around 700 bucks cheaper than the Kaibabs. Functionally are they a good deal? Elk / mule deer hunting when you don't want to carry 6 lb spotter with you. or is spending the extra money on viper HD or kaibabs worth it.. 200 or 700 bucks can buy a lot of stuff.

    Go Ruck

    I have been asked by a couple of guys I work with to join them in a GoRuck Challenge. From what I can tell, not really a competition against other teams but more of a competition against your mental state and your ability to suck it up. So this might not be the brightest thing I have done...

    My knee. What did I do

    Ok this is strange but after walking about 5 miles in 10 inches of snow I could barely walk on it and lifting it to get in truck caused searing pain. So of course I didn't go to doctor. I got a brace from Walmart and wore it for 5 days. Now it feels ok, but every now and then it twinges...

    My Crumy Wyoming Wilderness Hunt

    Well I made it off and got all the meat and camp with the the help of my hunting partner. We only had one small encounter with a grizzly but it was as much as a non-event as it was an event. So not too bad. It rained and hailed first 4 days with snow on 5th. Walked out to dry and then back...
