    Hunting Stories

    Hunting stories are great and I love to read them. I'll start...What's your story? I've known my wife for 3 1/2 years now. To say I was well set in my ways when we met is perhaps an understatement. I tried to warn her about the addiction, but she was raised in LA and MN/SP and just couldn't...

    Who takes a back-up bow on out of state hunts?

    I have done it both ways but have yet to need one. Who is taking a second bow on out of state hunts in case of a failure? One day hike out vs. losing an entire hunt? I'm on the fence about buying a second bow and just taking a poll and gathering info on who else struggles with this decision...

    PayPal Fee Calculator

    I see a lot of 3% and 4% references in the classifieds when buying and selling using PayPal. I thought I'd post up a calculator that people can use to figure out the actual fee charged. Because I have a classifieds addiction, I created this for my use, and I thought maybe others would like a...

    Hunting Hearing Aid Reviews

    At 36, it pretty much sucks to be losing my hearing, but I don't want that to be the end of my solo elk hunting. My last trip found me 30 yards from a bunch of cows in Idaho and I could not hear them at all. My high frequency is gone and I'm looking for some help. If anyone having experience...

    Multi-week trip meat care

    Ok folks, I have a logistical conundrum. I have a 7 day hunt in Idaho for elk and bear the last week of September and I drew a mule deer and antelope tag for Wyoming which begins Oct. 1. I will be solo for the trip and there are no meat cutters near my hunt in ID and since I live alone and will...

    Ok folks, I need some advice. I've caught a case of the cravings and I can't seem to shake them. I can usually sneak in a cheat meal or a reefed day and kick the urge to binge but once I got down into the single digit body fat range, it's like I'm addicted to crack and I cant satiate the sugar...

    You Idaho guys are lucky

    My work has brought me to Hailey, ID for the week and I finished up early today so I headed up Carbonite Mountain. It is beautiful here and I've seen a very large herd of elk every day living on the mountain between Hailey and Sun Valley. Boy, if I could find steady work out here, it would be...

    Any WA guys know where I can get an Alien X these days?

    I've been looking for another Alien X in 55-70lb but I'm having trouble. I found some on other sites but I'm not getting any responses from the sellers. I know Martin was sold, and they're not really popular out, here but I love mine and want another one. If anyone knows where I can pick one...

    Solo Sage Country Success

    Since I was a little bean I was always in awe of grandpa's mule deer mounts in the basement. I would always talk about going with him to chase mule deer and antelope in the sage country. Unfortunately, he didn't make it long enough for us to see that dream through so I set out to complete it...

    Redefinition of Success

    Well, I didn't connect on my elk but I survived 7 days in the mountains, alone, and had my one opportunity. This is one major bucket list item ticked off my list. Next is a kill. I consider this year a success because I proved that I could locate, relocate, climb, descend, pack, hunt, weather...

    Kifaru-- Top notch folks

    Let me start by saying that I don't currently own any Kifaru gear. I drove to Denver to visit a friend before I head into the high country on Friday to chase elk and I had time to kill so I stopped in at Kifaru today. Let me tell you, that is one fine group of people. I won't get into...

    Where would you live?

    If you could move anywhere in the lower 48 to hunt elk, mule deer, pronghorn, Moose, sheep etc., what would be your choice and why? I may be facing this option in a few years and thought it would be fun to discuss. So, what state has the most options for residents to hunt and fish?

    Scouting Trip

    I'm taking my first scouting trip into the Eagles Nest July 7-9 to work the kinks out of my "system", get the lay of the land, and maybe put my eyes on some elk. I have been planning on going in solo but if anyone is looking for a hike and has the time off let me know; a partner could be fun...
