    Anyone got an 8 archery tag?

    Good bugling the last few days of the hunt in morning and evening(one day they bugled till almost noon) . My buddy got it done last few minutes of light on last day. Definitely tough before that. AZGFD needs to push that hunt back towards the end of September.

    Classy hunters

    Yea man good people are still out there. Years ago, in unit 10 on a cow hunt my pack with my binos, tripod, field cleaning kit, batteries, first aid and other misc. items (a few thousand bucks' worth of stuff) fell out the back of a faulty SxS tail gate onto a major road in the unit. We didn't notice it until we had turned off to a smaller 2 track headed up hill and other stuff started falling out. Freaked out, we hauled butt back and there was my pack sitting up on the side of the road with everything in it. I was in diss belief. I was very fortunate that the right person came across my pack and left it for us.

    Things (snakes) that make you go, whew!

    A few years ago, I was walking a deer trail fairly quickly to get to a glassing spot. Out of nowhere the rattling started, luckily, I could tell it was to my left, so I quickly moved a step to my right, looked over and a few feet away there was 4-footer reared up, pissed and ready to strike. Thank goodness I stepped in the right direction, or he would have got me. Grabbed the biggest rocks I could find and took care of him (didn't want to spook any deer with my pistol). I usually let them be in the wild, but had to walk that trail back later on.

    Pop-up tent

    I have owned one for about 5 years, bought it super cheap, re did roof and put new canvas on. They are nice to get you off the ground and provide insulation for cold or hot weather, a small lift and they will get you further than bigger trailers, it's also nice to have a bigger stiffer bed to sleep in. But like said before they can be a pain to setup/take down, and I worry about my crank system deciding to crap out making it useless. I am going to sell it soon since I have upgraded to a fifth wheel.

    Tranny Mechanic

    dang!!! I still miss my 08 civic that was totalled, had over 250k miles without major issues. Seems like more planned obsolescence with these newer cars.

    Just curious if you had been changing the fluid every 30k miles or so? I hear the CVTs are more sensitive so needing that type of maintenance. My civic has a CVT and about 40k miles, so hoping to avoid that big bill in the future.
  10. If it's the 6.2 Ford, gotta have 4.30 differential gear ratio. I know pretty specific but need it to tow my fifth wheel. Tucson area, but can travel if needed.

    Cool to see another backcountry edition, their pretty rare, and pretty sure they stopped making that edition. I have the same machine except a crew. They come with some nice factory upgrades. GLWS

    45/70 thunder five revolver

    Those are cool pistols I have a thunder five but in the usual .410/45lc. Not as good looking as that one but still works flawlessly.

    TWO Igloo elk coolers SOLD

    These really are great coolers for the price. I have one and upgraded the latches and hinges because I noticed how well they perform. Free bump!

    Motor oil question

    I would change my oil at least once a year even with low miles driven. Oil is cheap compared to a engine swap. Sucks that the OP is having trouble finding oil. I started changing my own oil a long time ago and won't go back to wasting time and money at a shop. At least you have piece of mind that it's done right and with the right products. Use this as a opportunity to stock up on your oil when it's available and have it on hand to change on your own time👍.
