    How has Everyone’s Hunting Season at Home been?

    Nicely done! Don't underestimate SSTs at any velocity.

    Finally got one!

    Sometimes it's easy sometimes it not. This year was easy cause the antelope numbers were way up where we were hunting. The deer hunting was a lot tougher though.

    Finally got one!

    Ok I'm not much of a story teller but here goes. My hunting buddy Dave and I drove out to my little make shift hunting camp in Wyoming in late Sept. There we met up with four young guys from my sportsmen's club back in PA. They wanted to hunt for pronghorns, so I told them their best bet was to...

    Finally got one!

    Well boys the .308 has been bloodied! On my annual trip to Wyoming she took a decent antelope and a pretty nice muley buck. Each succumbed to a single 150 gr. Hornady SST sitting on top of a bunch of IMR4895.

    How has Everyone’s Hunting Season at Home been?

    Thanks, after everything else getting cancelled this year it was sure good to get out there and spend a few weeks in the wide open spaces.

    So What Do You Guys Think?

    I went back and checked my hunting diary for 2016, that year I took a buck antelope with that gun at 390 yards. 1 shot thru the heart and it was all over.

    Draw Results coming in

    I'm glad I drew deer and antelope tags in Wyoming, cause it looks like it might be the only hunting I get to do this year. My fall bear hunt in Ontario got officially cancelled today. The outfitter doesn't want to start baiting hoping that the border will open in time. Can't say that I blame him...

    Obsessed With Ruger Rifles Especially #1s

    Sadly I only have one #1 left in my collection, but she is a dandy in 300 H&H. I've let the other ones go for all sorts of reasons, mostly because someone else wanted them very badly, but I always applied the cash to a good cause, like a new Ruger in a cal. that I always wanted. At the moment I...

    Congrats, I've had mine for quite a few years now and I don't think you will be disappointed.

    I'll have to go back and check my email but I believe it was sometime in late March.

    Safari starts today

    We booked our flights pretty early and you only have 12 months to rebook so decided to play it safe and go with a refund.

    Safari starts today

    I feel your pain Dale, I would have gotten home last weekend from my safari with KMG. I got my money back from Delta last week for my flight from Atlanta to Joberg. Not really expecting to get anything back from SAA for the rest of the trip but if I would it will be a pleasant surprise. I'm just...

    Finally got one!

    Yeah the suppressor is like icing on the cake with the 308. I finally got it to the range yesterday and I have to say I was really impressed with it from the first group on. It likes a couple of different 150 gr. bullets with large amounts of IMR4895.

    Death of the 3-9 scope

    As long as I'm still hunting the 3 x 9 scope will be alive and well. That's about the only power scope I've hunted with since the 70's. Yes my scopes may be a little dated but hell so am I.

    Ruger 308 Rifle

    In a thread a while back I said that I always wanted a 308 Win. but just never bought one. Well I can't say that anymore and some of the blame goes to Graham Hunter. I was thinking about buying one of the new Ruger Hawkeye Hunters in 308 Win. then I bought that 250 Savage from Graham and when I...

    Just curious are any of the bullets you've tried flat base or are they all boat tail?

    Thank you, I have a bunch of those scopes they are my go to model. How's the Scout rifle working out for you?

    Finally got one!

    Yep I'll be loading for it hopefully starting tonight. I have a bunch of different 150 gr and 165 gr bullets and kegs of Varget, IMR3031, RE 15 and some other powders to try out. I fully intend to put her through her paces.

    I'll keep you in mind but doesn't look like it's going anywhere anytime soon. That thing shoots like a dream.

    Thanks I just wish my wife felt the same way. Two new rifles in a matter of a few days did not make her smile, but I sure was.

    Not to be mean or anything but I'm really glad you didn't. Hope you find another one just like it some day.

    Happy Easter!

    Trying to have a good Easter despite the fact that I'm supposed to be on an airplane right now with my daughter and son in law headed to Atlanta and then on to Joberg. Things would be a lot better if the whole family could at least gather for a huge Easter dinner like we normally do. Just have...

    Curious to see what action people are taking for the Coronavirus

    Pretty boring day today, wind gusts over 40 mph, too windy to go shooting or do much of anything outside. So I whipped up a big pot of mule deer spaghetti for supper and afterwards my grandson and I were still hungry. So we baked an oatmeal and raisin cookie. Yep just one cookie on a 14" pizza...

    Change of plans anyone?

    Must admit I'm not much of a reader, just never had the time, always worked 2 or 3 jobs to make extra cash to use for hunting trips and taxidermy bills. Pretty much was either working, sleeping or hunting for the last 35 years or so. I checked out Mr. C.J. Box, his books do sound interesting...

    Change of plans anyone?

    Starting to wonder about the trip I have planned for my wife and myself. We are scheduled to head out to South Dakota the first week of June for the Volksmarch up Crazy Horse Monument then head over to Wyoming, visit some friends and hang out for a week and take the Outlaw Canyon tour. My wife...

    Change of plans anyone?

    Was supposed to leave for a safari with KMG on Easter morning, that's not going to happen so I guess I'll hunker down and see what the near future brings. Probably looking at trying again for next spring, this fall is going to be a little busy. Just heard from Lori, looks like Delta is giving us...

    Curious to see what action people are taking for the Coronavirus

    I know what you mean, I am my own worst enemy when it comes to cooking and dieting. Warm weather is coming so I'll soon be outside mowing and working in the garden hopefully I can work some off and keep it off. This shut down can't last forever.

    Curious to see what action people are taking for the Coronavirus

    So I made this for my wife's birthday yesterday, it was plenty for us and the grandson. Now tonight it's turkey pot pie. This being hunkered down is going to be hard on my diet.

    Curious to see what action people are taking for the Coronavirus

    Pretty much just staying at home, cancelling club meetings and functions. Babysitting my 2 year old grandson while his momma works crazy hours, she's a CPA. My wife was scheduled to retire next week but her plant closed down yesterday for 2 weeks so she's now officially retired, that will...
