    Wtb Ford 351/400 and 1977 f150 parts

    I know. I’ve always wanted to swap an old motor with a newer one. I had an International Scout and I was planning on doing a LS swap but I figured out time was an issue. Not so much money because it would take a few years but I’m not as patient as I once was and I’m not willing to cut back my time in the field. You two should have a good time with this project. I’m surprised a girl is into that. I have lots of respect for her.

    22 mag for dad

    Ruger Single Six or Nine. I have the 9. For rifles, I have a Cooper model 57. Anschutz has one as well. They’re bolt actions but really nice. They’re pricey, but for your dad go all in.

    I think a lot of people don’t understand what it’s like to be a youth today. It’s the parents job to set them up for success at everything. Failure, stress, and disappointment are all unpleasant and should be minimized.

    “Search and Rescue in 4B”. That’s better than all of the 4B jokes I’ve heard. Rescue may be one thing, but if you ever need a search in 4B, well that would be embarrassing.

    Prairie Dogs

    Haven’t seen any there for a few years.

    Prairie Dogs

    Maybe I’m in the wrong places, but I haven’t seen much in a few years. I’m usually between Winslow and Springerville and haven’t seen but maybe 2 this year. Do you guys still see them?
  9. The only company I can think of is Tempe Crane. They are a crane company and not advertised as a service company but over the years, they have done some wild stuff for me when the others said no. That makes me think they could do it. If not, they definitely know who will.

    What am I?

    With Halloween coming up, that would be a great place for a dead man hanging prank. It would be real funny to see the reactions if you could make it as realistic as possible.

    Willow Springs Smallmouth

    I agree. I was born in Arizona and all I seem to really care about is the outdoors. It is getting worse and worse every year. The drought, that we can’t control is not helping either. I’m only 40 years old and I’ve seen my favorite deer areas turn into windmills and potash areas. It makes me wonder what the next 40 years will look. I’ve come to the conclusion that all I can do is get out and enjoy it before it’s gone because it seems like every year there’s bad news like loosing 3600 acres south of Winslow to wind turbines or more land lost near Starlight pines or new roads showing up. New administrations doing the right thing will help slow the decay a little but with everyone from Minnesota, North Dakota and Canada and other places wanting to move to Arizona because of the climate, our space that we have left will have more and more people using it every year.

    Tactical Naps - It's about time

    Naps are the best. I love to doze off in the field. There’s been a few memorable naps. One was where I fell asleep in a push down area and woke up with a coyote a few feet from me. It scared both of us when we made eye contact. A few times I was in deep sleep and the sound of wings flapping woke me up when a crow flew down to check me out and hit the brakes and flew away 10 or so feet from me. Then a few times I woke up to something running away. Don’t know if it was a deer or elk. I’m sure they were walking close by and either saw me or smelled me and took off.
  13. I have a few Forster case trimmers. The way it worked out, there were two times where my dad and I bought up someone’s reloading set up when they were getting out of reloading. We now have four case trimmers and all of the pilots and parts to turn the necks too. I have one I keep set up only for .270 and I will never change it. I also have the Lyman case prep station. Brass prep is my favorite part. I even weight sort the brass.

    Road Hunting discussion

    The deer, elk or antelope won’t sit still long enough for you to get a shot where I hunt if you’re hunting out of a vehicle. First of all, there aren’t many there to begin with and the ones that are there are very spooky. In the past 20 years, I’ve seen maybe 5 bucks that will stare at you while you drive. Of course they were very young. The others I only saw because they were running away. Elk seem to stay put a little longer but never deer or antelope.
