    Dirt bike questions

    I just picked up 2022 KTM 350 XCF W and it's a shweeet flippin ride. Like NMBPMAN mentioned above, fuel-injected models on any of your top brands are going to be fantastic to ride and require zero tweaking when you change elevation or climate. Most 450's of any year will 'lug' a fair amount at lower speeds and R's, making them less than ideal for someone not grabbing a lot of throttle. Only thing that is sure is that you'll have a bunch of fun once you choose a bike. Good luck!

    Badass man! Few dudes post for the 1st time and then go on to tell the story, more or less throw down a bit of play by play during th hunt. Super cool that you got it done and congrats on your 1st archery elk!!! Sounds like a helluva trip and an experience of a lifetime you got to share with your father in law.

    2021 AZ archery bull *story added*

    Super cool for you to follow up with a story to match that bull! Cool to hear that your gamble paid off after going all-in on that bigger bull too. You have surely inspired a couple of dudes that are out there still working to make it happen!!!

    Great ethics to teach the kids, NOT

    I grew up spending a ton of time in the dirt and have seen many changes to our etiquette and I don't feel for the better, unfortunately. I've always let the faster driver/rider pass, end of story. It's not my road and whether I'm in the RZR, on a dirt bike, quad, mt bike, or put-puttin in my truck - if you want to go faster than me, it's not my place to dictate anything for any reason. I pull over every time as soon as there is room and will wave you by. Sometimes I cringe when I do it, but it's the right thing to do by the way I was taught and that's the way I teach it. I don't own the road. Some days, I'm the faster driver/rider and some days I'm not. Pretty simple. Having said that, it's pretty rare that I get passed in the dirt... 😉

    Pay it forward - I will start

    Danner's sized 8.5 / 7.5 and the Tammarack's are 9. All men's sizing. Boots are well worn but easily have a couple of generations worth of hunting/backpacking left in them. No obvious odors or pre-teen funk detected during a very formal and professional inspection. New River pick-up.
  7. Hey Gents - Looking for a long shot here and some help getting my hands on a couple of boxes. I haven't been able to catch a single box for sale anywhere since Sept last year and unfortunately, the 180gr VOR-TX is the only diet my rifle will get down with. I have a mixed lot of premium factory stuff to trade in .300WM, 6.5CM, and .308, as well as some plinking stuff in a number of standard pistol and rifle calibers if interested in a trade.

    Really solid job capturing that hunt from start to finish and including some story to go along. Nice work and congrats on your hunt!!!

    New pack recommendation?

    Kifaru is overrated and many of the designs are half-baked in my opinion. They also admittedly aren't fans of the meat shelves and it's very apparent when you are putting their system into use. You'll end up fishing through the hardware section of Ace Hardware to Frankenstein a functional system. I think MR is the best pack out there for the money.

    Bear hunting rough start

    But man they ride like butt unless you air them down to <20lb. I personally miss the larger tires running C range. I had very few problems and didn't have to spend 30min airing back up all the time.

    Hunting soap

    How many days before the rash starts to show up??? lol PM inbound.
  12. Thanks kidso for posting up the video! I thought it was super cool and loved getting to see the country you got to hunt. I was 100% envious of your hunt as you posted it last year and still am of the adventure you had. I'm sorry it didn't play out with a bear coming home but appreciate you sharing the experience.

    New Sig Cross rifle

    I haven't followed any of the issues with the Axis series to have a base of knowledge. My models 10 and 110 have been incredible for me. The 10 will reliably run .65-75MOA and the 110 all day .375MOA. For grins, I looked up the rifle on their website and am impressed with the statement they make at the end of this description - The Savage AXIS II has built a reputation as a budget friendly rifle that doesn’t sacrifice accuracy or performance. Now the AXIS II family has been given a Precision Series upgrade. Savage has partnered with Modular Driven Technologies (MDT) to take the AXIS II to new distances. The AXIS II Precision will open up new possibilities for the shooter that wants one hole groups from a rifle that won’t shoot holes in his wallet.

    New Sig Cross rifle

    I like that Savage Axis for the money. The Sig looks pretty sweet, but I bet it won't outshoot the Savage for twice the cost.
