    Bloodiest Guns

    Glenfield m60 plus cheap scope accounted for thousands of gophers (actually Columbian Ground Squirrels) on our ranch in Montana while I was in my teens.

    Late Elk Rut

    These elk are, genetically, the same elk I hunted most of my life in Montana, In Montana, general rifle season starts in the last week of October. In the first week of the Montana General Season there is the random bugling, but the bugles basically disappear in the first week of November. There are always the rare exceptions. One November, I let a good herd slip right on by behind me, because I assumed the bugling I herd was another hunter. I ignored the bugling and walked a bit on ahead when I crossed fresh tracks from a sizable herd.

    Yeah, my third cousin's boyfriend's neighbor says - You all need to be reminded of the things you post.

    Sad news- Hoghunter

    He payed the ultimate sacrifice for our beloved country. My memory of him will be one held in honor and dignity. Now, there will be no more pain and no more surgeries and he gets to scout out the back hills of heaven before us. Prayers for his family.

    Push Tanks - Where to set the camera

    Salt licks work well. Sooner you get them out, the better. Improve trail, both coming in and leaving the cam sight. Bull elk will use the improved trail leading them into your cam.

    How are Spring hunts going so far?

    On Friday's opening, my truck broke down on me while heading out into unit 8 at 4am. I was able to get out on Monday, but discovered unit 8 swamped with campers. I didn't see or hear any on Monday. I discovered some birds on Tuesday, but all silent. Things were silent on Wednesday and the temps went up fast and I Left. I decided to skip Thursday due to the heat, but it the temps cooled down and I kicked myself.

    camera found in 8

    I saw a long piece of a tree stump laying on the ground next to tank. Looked like a good place for a snake, so I flipped it over. No snake, but there was a camera attached. It's a Stealth cam with a combo pad lock. It looks like the cam is still good. If this sounds like it is possibly yours, pm me and we can swap info.

    Unit 7 Birds

    Talked to a guy today who is hunting 7 with a guide and he says they've gone silent in 7. I am not getting responses in 8, but that's probably because my turkey calling sounds more like a Pterodactylus. I got in on a Tom this morning and he'd talk at me personally, but couldn't get him or any others to reply to my calling.

    Ya see, the real conspiracy is skinny people tying to kill off us old fat bastards. Dang you skinny people! I hope your at least smart enough to recognize a real joke.

    Effects of the virus scare?

    My brother's inability to rest and take it easy has bit him on the butt. The virus has made a resurgence with him. Now, my daughter, in the Bend, Oregon area, has a co-worker going in for testing.

    Dang it, I was just gonna say the exact same thing. So much fresh food production, perhaps more food than I have seen for this time of year in my 11 years watching.

    Caliber

    My last and only antelope was in Montana '09. I used my 30-06 with 150gr Winchester Silvertip factory round. I wish I had my 444. Shot was only 70 yards. I placed the shot, high shoulder where with my 444, everything from small does to big bulls all pancake on the spot. With the 150 gr silvertip from a 30-06, the bullet exploded on the light shoulder blade. I was seriously bothered when I saw the antelope run off. I knew it was gonna circle so I cut it off and dropped it with the next shot. I prefer one and done. I think, just because I am such a fan of my 444, on my next antelope hunt, I'll use it with a self designed 237gr cast bullet at @2600 fps.
