    They're a small company, only open 8a-4p mountain time Mon-Fri. They were probably closed yesterday for MLK too. Should be open now.

    Back to work Vax status

    My company has been doing these "daily assessments" every day for a while. Report whether you have symptoms or a close contact and whether you need to quarantine or not based on current policy. They eventually had a spot for voluntary reporting of vax status, then we had to upload our cards for...

    Unfollowing Hunting Social Media Will Make Hunting Better: Matt Rinella Essay

    @Mattrinella What are your thoughts on public land mapping software lowering the barrier to entry for hunters to find public land? Seems to me like that could be a major factor in public land crowding.

    Whats the best quick release rifle system?

    I've like the SG but I did have my rifle come out unintentionally this year. Fortunately, last day of the hunt. And most definitely user error. Make sure that strap is seated in the quick release clamp properly. I think I had it a little off and the clamp wasn't fully secured. Fell on the dirt...

    I thought Rokslide was an offroading forum for at least a year. Thought it was strange y'all talked about hunting so much...

    Best bino harness w/ Pistol holster/carrier?

    I tried the marsupial on my SG harness and wasn't a fan. It was a little too tight for my P320 and I didn't like the location in general. Seemed difficult to draw while also not feeling all that secure. My hunting parter has been using his for a while now and likes it well enough though. Ended...

    Unfollowing Hunting Social Media Will Make Hunting Better: Matt Rinella Essay

    My favorite part of the article, "My brother Dan has joked about developing an internet-enabled rifle scope that automatically uploads kill shots to a hunter’s social media feed." I'd say the root cause is decreasing habitat, decreasing public land availability and private land monetization...

    Cooler Ice Block Molds

    I used the Freshly gel packs for a while, a little big for a standard fridge/freezer combo and they bust after a couple uses.

    Wyoming Corner Crossing defense fund

    This video from the Full Draw Film Tour this year was pretty awesome. Hunting landlocked public by helicopter. Obviously not an option for 99% of hunters. Anyone got a helicopter? I imagine the landowners would prefer walk in corner hopping access to getting buzzed over constantly!

    Cooler Ice Block Molds

    I’d use ice just so I could dump weight in the cooler. Hunting out of an apartment can be rough on the back!

    Cooler Ice Block Molds

    Can anyone recommend ice block molds so I can make some bulk ice for the cooler? I used Tupperware for a while and they ended up cracking. Would love some silicone ones but can’t really find anything that’s sizable. Would silicone bread molds work?

    Tragic bear attack

    My post clearly says manual safety. It’s objectively easier to have a ND with a trigger safety than say a thumb safety. One requires you to accidentally pull the trigger, the other requires you to accidentally flip the safety and then pull the trigger. I’m not saying anyone should use one or...

    Yep, 18. Getting wood cut to size for smaller stoves is more of a pain than you'd think

    Tragic bear attack

    Gotta love the same gun you own being the subject of a lawsuit and 54 claims that it will go off by itself...😅

    Tragic bear attack

    I didn't say that training doesn't reduce the probability of a ND. I said it doesn't reduce the probability to zero, which is what bsnedeker stated. As in, the total absence of a possibility that an accident can occur. Because that is never zero. Wind Gypsy on the first page said he never...
