    What's your worst mid-hunt equipment failure?

    Not as much of an equipment failure, but that contributed to some bad decisions. We were hunting Laramie Peak in late November, with the usual snow on the ground. We were camped on the south side headed to Medicine Bow. Our buddy brought his 5th wheel up and set up. I walked back off the...

    What size cooler to fly back 50lbs of meat??

    5.5lb dry ice per person carry-on or checked. If checked Packaging must release co2 gas and include"DRY ICE" or "CARBON DIOXIDE, SOLID". State weight and contents. This is from Southwest Airlines. To meet the venting requirement just take a straw and stick it out of the zipper on a soft side...

    October Wyoming Weather

    I hunt up there each year. Like others have said, pack like a woman. Plan on a 50 degree temp swing and you'll be fine. Stay off the 2 tracks if it rains and just walk a little further. Those ruts people put in the roads stay for a long long time once the roads dry out, almost ruining the roads...

    Random Hunt Questions

    I have hunted 17 a few times. Here is what I'll tell you. Plan on walking, but be ready to shoot as soon as you leave the truck. We have killed them a few miles in and also less than 200 yards from the truck. I'm not trying to sound rude when I say this, but you'll find them when you find...

    WY units 16 & 17

    Headed back to 17 this year again, also have a mule deer general C tag in my pocket. It may take a few days to pin some animals down, but they are there. Get ready to walk some miles, or you may just have one pop up when you get out of the truck. We have shot them miles in and also less than 50...

    Tripod Adaptor

    I'm sure that one of y'all have done what I'm trying to do here. I have a few hunts coming up this fall that are going to be in areas with higher prarie grass and sagebrush. A regular bipod won't give me the height that i'm looking for in some of the areas we are hunting. I always have my...

    Braggin Board for Fishing!

    That's a nice golden! One of my favorites to eat. I haven't caught any that size unless I'm in the Tortuga's. Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk

    Going to do the same thing. However we have to fly meat back to Florida. Last year it worked great. We broke down the animals in the field and then let the meat hang in game bags for a few days. Cut and wrapped in butcher paper and then into a deep freeze. We flew the meat home in soft side...

    RMNP if you could pick one hike?

    I was just out there with the family at the end of March. Had a lot of snow on the ground and not a ton of people. Definitely hike up to sky pond and then continue on. It's really not too bad, my 9 and 11 year old girls did it no problem. Beaver Medows is another good one. Saw tons of elk and...

    Winchest model 70. Worth upgrading stock?

    The stock is a B&C. Yup still the original barrel, just a weird angle I guess. Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk

    Winchest model 70. Worth upgrading stock?

    I have a M70 featherweight that I swapped stocks on. The wood was getting beat up somewhat and I hunt in a lot of crummy weather. I have never bedded a stock before but it was quite easy using Marine Tex grey. If I do my part it will shoot under 1moa. I lightened the trigger pull and it feels...

    Splitting shelter costs with a party

    I'll add to my original response. I usually never split anything. However with our wall tent and supplies the two of work just fine. We work together at the fire department and are super picky about how we care for and store items. This aligns well for us. I'm actually looking for a old military...

    Splitting shelter costs with a party

    My hunting partner and I split the cost of a Davis 14 x 16 and the cost of the steel for welding up the stove. I welded the stove and he picked up a few odds and ends. Works for us and if others come along we just have them cover food. I combined a few different ideas for the stove and it works...

    Crispi Vs Scheen vs ???

    I had a pairof Schnees Mission boots. Loved the boots and put tons of miles on them. However last season the waterproof membrane failed. Even though the boots were 2 years old Schnees had me send them in and sent me a pair of Beartooth II. Unfortunately they just didn't fit my foot. Schnees sent...
