    Leatherman favorites

    i always carry my bino harness (basically a chest rig) for literally any outdoor activity, and a Leatherman product has lived in it for a decade. Started with a Wave, and really just never used the additional tools. Switched to carrying a Skeletool CX, and have been happy with the switch. From a...

    How Much PTO Do You Have?

    I have unlimited PTO. Salaried, 5 years in a large corporate healthcare company. Unlimited PTO was tied to achieving a certain seniority status, not necessarily years on the job. My wife was very excited when she found out I had unlimited PTO. I did my best not to laugh and explained to her...

    Truth not allowed here

    My mind immediately came up with a dozen inappropriate double entendres involving firearms, but in the interest of not getting kicked off the forum I’ll leave it alone 😂

    Sleeping in Puffy Layers without a sleeping bag

    Once it gets cold, I pretty much always sleep in my synthetic puffy inside my bag. On trips where I know it will be really cold or will require a lot of sitting for extended hours, the synthetic puffy pants come along I’ll wear them in the sleeping bag as well. They definitely add a boost of...

    What's Your Non-Truck Hunting Rig?

    I have two non-truck rigs. 2005 Xterra is the go-to. Stock suspension fits Cooper AT3 33’s just fine. I did remove (fully unbolted) the back seats about five years ago, so it is a permanent 2-seater. Cuts down on free-loading buddies 😂. Removing the seats really opened a ton of space for...

    CO Wolf on Film-Hush video

    Certainly. But that fact has gotten exponentially more attention in the past few years, so somewhat noteworthy of an insta-celebrity documenting one on film. Just curious if this is in the area where they have typically been reported, or somewhere new.

    CO Wolf on Film-Hush video

    Not my typical cup of tea either, but when you are on day four of solo-parenting two babies under two (building collateral with the wife for fall 😂) , zombie mode takes over and you take what the YouTube gives you

    CO Wolf on Film-Hush video

    Saw the Hush guys captured a wolf on film on a recently posted 4th season deer tag. Film was a little grainy, but certainly looked like a wolf to me (but I’m no expert, only have seen a few in the wild). Curious if anyone has an idea of what part of the state they were in? North park pack, or a...

    Wolves back onto Endangered Species List. What does this mean for Colorado introduction efforts?

    Was wondering the same thing. It was mentioned on the local news this morning that it would likely delay the CO reintroduction timeline, but looking forward to hearing more specifics.

    Is the stand alone GPS a thing of the past?

    While their popularity is certainly declining, I think stand-alone units will still find favor with a subset of outdoor enthusiasts for a while. My old Etrex 20 lives permanently (dummy corded in a side pocket) in my Bino harness. I do have OnX on my phone as well, and use them both in...

    Raise your hand if you did not get an elk this season

    0-3 this year. A WY cow tag was my priority tag for the season and came with high hopes. Had several awesome encounters with nice bulls, but the cow herds had all settled into the low sage country (all private) earlier than normal this year. A leftover CO first rifle bull tag of course resulted...

    Whats the best quick release rifle system?

    Kifaru gun bearer here. The rifle under my arm really isn’t noticeable for me, and I’d like to think it provides a little extra element protection and padding for the scope and action. Also like knowing where the end of the barrel is at all times, definitely makes sneaking through brush/under...

    Cabela's Gift Card to burn-Any tripod worthwhile? (Spotter, bino, and ideally rifle compatible)

    Really appreciate the feedback, thank you very much! Of the options, the Leupold Pro appears to fit the bill the best. Thanks!

    Cabela's Gift Card to burn-Any tripod worthwhile? (Spotter, bino, and ideally rifle compatible)

    My boss graciously threw me a $250 Cabela's gift card recently. With all of the extra deals right now (Raise, Active Junky at 14% cash back), I'd like to roll this into a serviceable tripod. With that said, the Cabela's ((/BassPro, same inventory now) offerings appear pretty limited. Here are...

    Cutting slots in buckles

    Maybe obvious, but using needle nose pliers really helps to manipulate webbing through the cut slots.

    Cleaning your backpack/hauling out meat question

    I’ve used my Kifaru pack and frame hard for 6 seasons. Multiple animals packed out each year, never been washed. Always throw meat (in synthetic game bags) in a contractor bag before going in the bag for packing out. My math related to heat is: I’m hunting x miles from the truck based on (for...
