    Percheron for hunting/ mountain trail riding?

    Honest sellers shouldn’t have an issue having a horse vet checked before you hand over the funds either. I would never pay for a horse first then have it vetted after the fact. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    After SXS experience, anyone go back to truck or other 4x4?

    I have off and on through the years had side by sides sold them, used the truck for a few years, bought another side by side and rinse and repeat. The thing i love about the side by sides is the speed at which you can cover country. If your leaving from a camp and need to drive 15-20 miles one...

    Percheron for hunting/ mountain trail riding?

    One thing to is you have a very healthy budget also to work with. You should be able to find a good quality mountain horse for the 10k you want to spend. I wouldn’t even settle for something that doesn’t have “buttons” either. A bulldog built quarter horse will fit the bill just fine. What i...

    Percheron for hunting/ mountain trail riding?

    My uncle has a Percheron X that he rides and packs (mostly packs now). The gelding is slower than molasses but has been a good horse for him Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Single best pic you've ever taken

    Hard to pick just one but these are my two favorites. One with an iPhone and the other with my dslr that is now a paper weight on the shelf. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What other addiction(s) do you have?

    Another horse person here. I showed competitively as a youth, took a 10 year break from horses, and got back into it a year ago and started showing in the ranch versatility classes and really enjoying it. I sure missed horses a lot especially the training aspect of it. Sent from my iPhone...

    New Lightweight Saddle Help

    Circle Y saddles are mass produced. You can compare them to a company like Vortex or Leopold. They have saddles in all price points but in the end they are going to be mass produced to a certain extent. Higher end saddle makers are all going to be handmade and they don’t produce the volume the...

    New Lightweight Saddle Help

    I firmly believe that when it comes to saddles lightweight and quality do not go together. However some saddle makers have their own representation that’s a good compromise between the two but will be difficult to find them cheap without going mass produced. And more than likely you’ll be out a...

    Breeding for hunting horses

    The good horse breeders put a lot of thought, time, and energy into their animals. It shouldn’t be something that is taken lightly. Good stallions of quality will cost you in the mid five figures to buy for your program. Great breeders won’t skimp out on their mares either. Most build their...

    Just like buying optics, the bigger the budget the more quality your saddles going to be You’ll spend more money on saddles that are tooled to the 9’s also. Full suede will be more affordable but probably not the route you want to go if your going to be in wet weather Lots of real working...

    Anyone “Not” want to draw the Montana LE elk tag?

    The new rules really makes people commit to a district but it does have its positives and negatives. One negative that has effected me is putting in for archery tag in the breaks hunting it for a week or two and then the rest of the archery season hunting locally in western Montana. Don’t get...

    New horse adventure

    Take the time like your planning on doing to learn how to pack but do not overlook the horsemanship portion either. In my opinion you need to focus your efforts on learning to ride and handle a horse and the packing and backcountry riding will come. If your family is into horses it will be...

    What is your effective range?

    This right here Practiced all the time 1500+ I like my hunting range to be below 900 yards but would consider a bit more. Husband made a 1400 yard shot on a elk a few years back and that situation was as good as it was going to get so he made it work beautifully Although, If i had to make an...

    Best Type & Place for Horse Purchase

    Horse market crazy right now. Lots of ‘trail’ horses bringing performance horse prices at auction Not saying you can’t find a needle in a haystack but today’s market definitely makes it a lot harder to do so Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Anyone miss out on killing because of glass clarity?

    Almost did once in 2015 or 2016, hiked in on some elk and set up for the shot to see that moisture had formed on the inside of the scope. The scope did hold zero just fine and ended up harvesting one. Was a long shot can’t remember how long but was inbetween 600-900 yards. Scope was a first...

    Knives... For the Kitchen

    I’ll offer my two cents after starting this thread awhile back I had a hard time stomaching the cost also but let me tell you it’s well worth it. Everyone’s thoughts and opinions were very helpful and i decided to purchase Cutco knives. They had a couple knife packages you could purchase with...
