    Best Hunting Multi-Pin Sight?

    Lots of options out there. Everyone will recommend what they shoot on their own rigs, in which case I'd recommend Black Gold as I've been very happy with mine. I'd personally try and decide what style you'd prefer and look for some helpful features. Stuff like housing/bracket materials, 2nd & 3rd Axis adjustment, fixed pins vs sliders, clickable movements (or at least an easily controllable friction adjuster) for your housing placement, easy to access pins for sighting in, Pin size, how many pins you want (single pin, 3, 5 , 7 etc), what colors you want (I personally have a harder time seeing a yellow pin, and see green very well, red is right in the middle) etc. These features (or lack thereof) are what really separate sights from one another and affects the price of each sight. If possible, I'd cruise some of the online sites and see if there are any that catch your eye, and then when you've got a few you're interested in, head down to a local shop and try to get your hands on as many as you can to see what really separates them from one another. For a personal recomendation, like I said above, I really like my Black Gold sight, which is a single .019" ascent (just a stock off the shelf model) as I've always preferred a single pin sight for a cleaner window to the target, although I have also enjoyed 5 pin fixed sights. My next purchase for this seasons archery elk tag however is a custom 4 pin housing for the Black Gold sight I already own

    Dead battery - need a jump near Globe

    I’m up near Jones Water, on 77 headed towards Show Low

    questionable AZ history

    I read Apache Wars a couple years before we moved out here while fishing near James Bay in Ontario, not knowing I'd be coming here later on in life. I forgot about the book until we were unpacking and spotted it. I've re-read it since and it's been really cool to read again with a better understanding of the places mentioned in the book and learning how rugged the terrain really is https://www.amazon.com/Apache-Wars-Geronimo-Captive-American/dp/0770435831

    questionable AZ history

    This is a great thread! I'm still new to AZ (3 years) but have loved reading about the history and hearing stories, even if they are mostly BS, they're still fun! I met an ole timer at Bass Pro and struck up a conversation about fly fishing, about an hour later he was telling me about the Apache Kid and the Sierra Madres

    Snake Gaiter recommendations

    I got the True Timbers or whatever they're called at Bass Pro, my Gf was working there at the time, so I got them for like $25, think they're usually $40. I wear them chasing quail and javelina in the cacti and love them, have yet to get cholla to go through them They are definitely hot, I'd give the turtle skins a serious look before I spent the $40 again.

    Cartridge of the Week: .243 Winchester

    I love my .257 Wby Mag! But I just picked up a Howa in .243 Win to serve as a practice/backup/loaner/windy coyote rifle to supplement the Vanguard S2. Can't wait to get the Howa out and see what all the hype is about!

    AZ Black Rattlesnake color change

    Almost stepped on one in 5A about a month ago while walking to the Rim for a pic. Thought it was the shadow from a rock (I was wearing sunglasses) next to a downed log. I kicked the log to see if there was a rattler on the far side before stepping over, that SOB rattled 8" from my leg. It was like 60* at the time, so I think it was still pretty lethargic. It went under the log and out of my life. Worst part was I was ahead of my snake broke dog and Gf, I guess Boone reacted but by the time we noticed him, the snake already my its presence known
