    M&P shield 40 trades? For something in 9mm

    No idea what you would like to trade for. Something stated could help.

    when did you shoot your first big game animal

    Lee we are pretty close in time frame. I think in 73 at 16 I shot my first buck. My old man must have been forward thinking because his 30-06 SPFD O3 had a 4X lyman scope older than I was mounted on it. We were hunting above Sycamore Canyon just N of the border in unit 36B. Looking forward to my 47th deer season in AZ this fall.

    Pinpointing downed animal

    When the grass is up to your butt and when you get up a hillside couple hundred yards from shot it does end up taking some searching around. Last year a newbie in our group got confused after a shot and took a picture the wrong clump of mesquite. Luckily my son kept checking out every likely clump of trees and came up with his buck about 40 min latter. By the time we headed out it was pitch black, 2 miles back in, rough broken oak hills and country new to us as of that AM. Dead reckoning back to camp with about zero ability to reference anything in the dark was a bit of an adventure.

    Tikka T3x vs Bergara B14 HMR

    I would go with Bergara Premier Stalker, if that's not in your budget the Tikka. I have a Bergara HMR Pro and it is hands down my best factory rifle, in 6.5C it shoots .35 MOA.

    Red flag laws

    The dems will go after every gun one step at a time. Wacko uses semi auto, go after semi auto. Wacko uses pump/auto shot gun, go after shotguns etc. We have seen this in England, Australia and New Zealand. In the meantime the Dems and Media are against a secure border, against police and will not call out hate speech or violence from the left. Not an atmosphere I want to disarm in.

    We need a CWT gathering

    Sounds great, I'm in.

    My first choice for home defense. Light, compact, handy, lower recoil even the ladies can handle. At 20 feet 1 OZ #2 lead shoot is just scary to contemplate.

    Red flag laws

    No robust due process then no support for this kind of legislation. If they enact any old slip shod BS good luck getting it fixed.

    Transfer pump

    I don't have my notes in front of me. Was researching 12V pumps for similar use and was able to do internet search for what I wanted. Ended up finding several highly recommend pumps. Short of a good recommendation search "Best 12V RV Water Transfer Pump". Good luck.

    Veteran POW

    God Bless them is right. Had 2 Uncles in stalags one a Liberator pilot one a field surgeon the other uncle a forward artillery observer on The Canal and latter CO of most USMC arty ever put together, during Vietnam. Grew up next door to an infantry man 44/45 and a P38 pilot same era. Old man volunteered to drive ambulances 44/45 when army medically disqualified him. Old man had a co-worker lost a leg when a Japanese tank ran over him and another in pilot training when the war ended. My God Father was in flight training and his brother flying P47 in Europe. Thats the short list, when I was a pilot in the Navy a lot of other guys had similar backgrounds. All in All generally a great bunch bunch of guys.

    Coues or Mule Deer

    Don't mind Trough hunter he is just that way.
  18. AZAV8ER


    A little antidotal note here. I have hunted southern AZ for Coues going on 50+ years. Deer numbers are down in S AZ and cattle grazing has been non existent for going on 2 decades. The F ing grass is so thick now days I get grass seeds in my trouser pockets and went to high top boots because all the crappy dried grass mulch got into my low top boots. We saw more and bigger deer when there were cattle, beat down cow paths and cooped grasses. Things got a little drier about 20 years ago and the oaks quit putting out a mast crop. Since then (no acorns on the oaks) deer a bit tougher to find and smaller and band tailed pigeons basically gone and not because of cows grazing. dang grass doin just fin in parts of S AZ, besides deer don't eat grass. Not sure about the under rim area but cows never seemed to hurt Coues numbers. Back to the under rim and BarX, OP stated studies from 70's and 450 cow calf units and reduction to what did he say 50 units? Did the discussion say now the ranch has permit for 130ish cow/calf units? So OP what is the number of unit increase the rancher is asking for now?

    Hunters locked out of Buehman Canyon Unit 33

    ran into this the last coupe years in 35B. basically land owner can deny access. Have had conversations with FS access co-rdinator and the fix is build a road to bypass the private. But its the government and the BS bureaucracy is slow to grind out. Good luck.

    30/06 Winchester Model 70 Post 64

    In my limited experience the post 64 MOD 70 push feed was a very nice rifle. I love the MOD 70 safety and the trigger was consider solid and easy to tune up. The one 270 I had produced nice groups and 20-20 hindsight don't think I would have sold it. But where or who told you that this rifle would sell for $1200.00?
