    Input on a truck

    I almost bought a mid 2000s diesel Dodge recently for my hunting truck. I decided that I really didn't need a diesel engine so went with a 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500. Like someone said Chevy's have the best gas engines, especially the late 90s mid 2000 generation of Chevy pickups. If you need a diesel, you won't be disappointed with a Dodge, but for gas engines I would go GM.

    The new boarder wall

    It's funny that so many people think a huge wall is the answer. Like the cartels haven't been going under or over current walls for decades now. Like someone else said, a physical barrier is greatly going to affect animal migrations. I hope they lean more towards a "virtual" wall with more surveillance, sensors and monitoring abilities. We definitely need to beef up our border security, but not by wasting money on something that has already been proven not to work.

    Guide and Client wounded in Border Ambush

    Yup border units are very unsafe. Nobody should hunt them. Stay north of I10!!!

    Trophy and Meat Care? Gutless?

    Javelina skulls are one of the the coolest looking animal heads out there. Euro mount is definitely necessary. If I get one this month I'm definitely trying out pelapapas recipe.

    Looking for old smart phone

    The Motorola Droid turbo has a crack resistant screen, some pretty impressive videos of testing done on you tube.

    EXCESSIVE celebration

    Looks like a lot of fun, it is only one day a year or maybe two if you consider the 4th.
  10. Great Earl Dibbles Jr quote I would have definitely help him out to a certain point. But sometimes if their not doing anything to help them selves out, then there's nothing you can do.

    Vortex 15x50 Vipers or 15x56 Vulture

    I think there is a big enough difference. Not only with light gathering ability of the 56mm but also the greater FOV. Those two factors help a lot with spotting game in low light when their most active.

    WTB decent binos - $400

    Wow $500 for razors, sounds like a smoking deal. I would most likely have done the same thing with that deal. I'm leaning towards the viper 10x42 myself, gonna try a few different binos at sportsmans tomorrow. I Should be able to get them for around $300 with my discount.

    Vortex 15x50 Vipers or 15x56 Vulture

    In case your still undecided. Get the vultures, they are way better in low light situations with 56mm objective lens. They are heavier but I only use them on a tripod, plus there's not a huge difference in quality of glass to warrant the extra money for the vipers IMO.

    Sneak boots on a budget

    Check most any wash/low spots leading north from the Border, you can find a bunch and after sanitized, have enough for all your friends... Yup, I'm gonna give them a shot this January and see how well they work. The ones I have are actually made pretty nicely. Strong stictching, Velcro at the back above the heel, and the string tightening on top. Only problem is they were made to go over tennis shoes and not boots, so it's tough getting them over my boots. Have you used them before?

    Sneak boots on a budget

    These sneaky feet are custom made in Mexico with camo!!! and free!!!, just gotta find them in some of the border units.
  16. Over the counter archery opened up on the 9th. 34a is awesome, especially during December and January when its not covered with rifle hunters. You get just about every type of terrain, from rolling flats to the pines up high.

    Poo 101

    That's sometimes referred to as "code brown" by BP. There has been many times even agents forget about where the scope can see. There is lots of funny footage of people popping squats in infrared.

    Spandex Mafia

    Haha, one of the best videos I have seen. I usually lay on my horn when these idiots think it's a good idea to ride on HWY 83 around blind corners with no shoulders at all.

    Cuttin' loose

    Came across this guy while working. Took a while but finally got him untangled. dang thing rushed me for a few feet after it was freed.
  22. I am going on my third year with my bow tech assassin. Its my first bow so I am still pretty new to bow hunting/shooting. I have heard that it's a good idea to change out strings every 2 to 3 years. Any recommendations on a brand? Looking to spend around 100 bucks. Also how does it affect my current sights? Will I have to sight it in again? I have the stock apex four pin sight. Is there a break in period? Has anyone purchased strings from bull basin archery, and had them install strings? Since I live in Tucson that's most likely where I will go have it installed.
  23. Thanks a lot for the information, definitely helpful.
  24. How you like the bow? I have the same one and been using it for about 3 - 4 year and I'm barely going to replace the string this season. I love it. I only just recently replaced the stock rest with a fall away rest. Everything else being stock has been deadly for me, since I have killed two deer and one javelina in the two and a half years I have had it.

    35B don't laugh. Lol.

    I killed my second spike coues this year as well. He was a little bigger than my first spike so moving on up haha. Definitely one of the toughest animals to hunt, so just tagging out is definitely an accomplishment regardless of antler size. Always good times hunting with friends and family. Congrats on your first coues
