I always carry a pack and my binos reside there while hiking in, noticed it was no longer there had to back track a day of hunting till I found it. The early morning coffee had kicked in and I had made a rush stop setting my pack on a...

    Recoil Mitigation

    My 375 was slightly short. I added a Pachmayr Decelerator Slip On Recoil Pad over the existing pad. Makes a world of difference.

    375 H&H rebored to 404 Jeffery

    Dennis is doing a M70 conversion on a 375HH to 404J for me. Hopefully done in a couple of weeks. There are a number of folks here that have had him do their conversion. He is busy but give him a call. He is reasonable on cost and is highly regarded.

    Salt wood was a process to fast cure walnut. Originally developed for the furniture industry by Morton Salt. Browning purchased the process and used it for a few years but found that the wood in contact with steel rusted. I believe there were a few years where 90 percent of the guns produced...

    A new toy for Cal

    Cal It might be worth a call to Birdseye Mercantile in Avon Montana. A CJ Birdseye established this in 1887. His business was called Birdseye and company. He appears to be a general merchant during the gold/silver rush these types of stores were who sold firearms at the time and this also could...

    Has anyone hunted on horseback

    Twenty years ago we had a friend with a large ranch and well trained hunting horses. In December we would hunt deer while in saddle. We used buckshot and the horses were very good at navigating thick palmetto brush which the deer hid out in. The horse would put the hunter high enough so we had...

    A new toy for Cal

    Beautiful rifle, simply gorgeous. A little search found some correspondence of a Birdseye and Company involved with a British Syndicate purchasing Montana Mining. Dates appear to be 1890’s to 1905. Not sure if this is a tie but it’s England and around the proper time period. Enjoy Ed

    Maybe this was discussed earlier in this thread but look up 1968 Pandemic and 1958. Both killed over 100,000 in US and over 1 Million worldwide. When my son mentioned it I had no memories of it even though a teen in 68. No lockdown just being careful...

    Pudlepointer Dog Breed

    It’s a versatile breed, NAVHDA. It’s a wonderful home family dog and it’s drive is incredible. I have had many labs and other pointers but Pudlepointers have an incredible personality and are extremely intelligent. The other plus is they don’t shed.

    Delta Airlines News

    I think it’s funny how many on the board here hate Delta. Have you ever looked at the ratings of the top 10 US Airlines? I fly predominantly Delta with many long haul flights and a at least a couple hundred thousand miles per year, until this year. I shutter every time I book an American or...

    glad to hear two supports from the forum. I respect all of your knowledge. My Colorado hunts were always a learning experience. From nothing to guiding my kids and some friends. Hard to believe 23 seasons, time flies. I sure miss those days so have to get back out there. My archery is more...

    Elk Help Colorado Black Powder

    So I have hunted bow and black powder in Colorado over 20 years. A number of years ago the lodgepole pines were killed off by bugs and now the trees where I love to hunt are falling and getting horses in and hunting is not much fun. Needless to say it’s been 5 years of no bugle hunting and i...

    Rifle weight

    Guess my win 70 375 at just a tad under 11lbs. In my mid 60s and deer or elk hunt with a pack which weighs more. I am trying to understand why a pound makes that big of a difference. I understand a double in the woods for grouse or pheasant in the field all day but the only thing I have found a...

    @Skinnersblade all I can say is I love my 375HH Win model 70 which i purchased 2 years ago. It’s a beautiful rifle to shoot and is ready to go to Zimbabwe if we can get this dang virus under control. I love it so much I went ahead and have a 404J being built from a Winchester 375HH action...

    Feral cats in Australia

    As a young boy the farm we lived on had a dump from the prison. I got my pellet practice shooting piles of rats but the dump also attracted feral cats. My father bought me two large havahart live traps which I used for a number of years. My neighbors were Amish and would attend a auction in...

    I just started down this path. Buying the RCBS kit and other starter things. The previous 3 months reading and watching as much as possible to get the basics understood. I found that I was starting to use custom bought ammo which were proving to be more accurate than premium ammo. I wanted the...

    Wife's second Osceola Turkey.. First doing her own calling....

    TSS #9 is the ticket. TSS is much heavier than Heavi Shot. Last two years I switched and 9 long beards later I am sold. They aren’t giving them away and recoil in a 3 inch is modest but the pattern is tight and the 9s have plenty of energy to 40 yards.

    New dot sight on my Sako Brown Bear

    Just a little caution on red dots or reflex sights being parallax free. They are not. Though parallax is better understood and compensated for it exists even in dot sights. Check weld and getting your eye in exactly the same place as we all know is key. If you notice on the newer Burris Fastfire...
