  5. Looking at the papers with all the FC, AFC, NAFC and NFC in the blood lines figure they are going to birdy as anything you could find. NFC= National Field Champion AFC= Amateur Field Champion. All that means is that the dog won a field trial event, won a National Field trial event. The A means handled by an amateur in said event.

    New build actions

    the Defiance is machined to proper tolerances, has an integral lug, better extractor and the side bolt release, why spend the money to make a REM 700 into what you can buy for not much more $$?

    Been hunting border units for 5 decades all the time hunting on foot covering miles a day. Seen the ground before trails and trash from crossers. Even found a lookout post the cartel had overlooking the Harshaw road. Can remember the first time I found a trash pile and was shocked how much garbage was dumped in one hidden draw I came upon. Would use the cow paths to get to varied hunting hot spots, it's amazing how pounded out those cow paths became after the smuggling started, pounded out paths even after the ranchers had no cows on the ground for several years. Have come across fresh paths trampled in the grass when the smugglers started avoiding the established trails. Hiking/hunting about 12 square miles of this ground for a long time and seen plenty of sign indicating illegals, just lately in the area we hunt there has been nothing for a while. Just because you don not like that we have no sign of activity in the area we are familiar with is no reason to call someone as not truthful.

    Truck does not move once camp is set up. Miles of hiking and glassing for 4 days, kinda that way every year.

    Have not seen fresh trash, beat down trails or a living crosser in 10+ years.
  10. Did you check out a Bull tag? How much is one of those?
  11. I can recall my first AZ duck limit, it was opening weekend 1969. It was my dad and brother along with our neighbor up in the white mountains. I think we had a boat and decoys set up on the W end of basin lake just north of big lake in eastern AZ. High overcast, breezy and the migration south was going strong. We could see V after V of waterfowl high up flying south. On a regular interval ducks would bomb in over our decoys. One time a pair of red head drakes came in at full speed from left to right just over the decoys and I got on them fast, had that old Winchester MOD 97 12G working faster than you would think a 13 year old could and dropped them both, bang bang. 2 days 4 limits each day and 56 birds total. Mallards, pintails, widgeon, gadwall and teal. Awesome weekend hunt and as you can guess have never seen its like since.

    H4350 or 6.5 stallball?

    I love H4350 in general. Works well in my 6.5C, 30-06 and 7-08. For my 270 WIN (I know not the 6.8West.) H4831SC gave me excellent accuracy. If H4350 is what ou have go for it, if you can get H4831SC then it will likely work better.
