    Just bought a Traeger and really?

    Second this, but since I don't want to deal with the vacuum I just scoop out the ashes a couple of times a year and then use a blower to get the rest out ... Just make sure the wind is blowing in the direction you want! I got a Louisiana pellet smoker at Costco on clearance for $200 and freaking love it

    Need Snow Pant/Bib Recommendations

    I took my kings camo bib to AK for snow goose hunting lying in a wet muddy blind and I stayed warm and dry despite it. 100% recommend

    2020 GMC Canyon new price

    Sell it to Carmax - or at least get an initial appraisal online. Both cars i sold to them went for more than the trade-in and better than I would have expected in private party. They love trucks.

    Things to do in Tucson w/10yr old?

    +1 on this one - the magic shop has the guy do tricks in front of you and there's a few other activities Air and Space museum is excellent and you wont see it all If you guys shoot bows for $3 each you can walk the target courses in Tucson Mountain park Hike up Piccacho peak on the way down to Tucson, it's an awesome hike and amazing views and there's a DQ right across the way for the reward If you are up for a little drive - consider AZ Zipline adventure (check availability online), it's a cool experience and the kids loved it and depending on the weekend they might have a grill your own night where you can bring your steak and they provide drinks, music, and you can even camp there overnight. For japanese food - Kukai (Mt Fuji Don Bowl) has a outside bar area For burgers - currently digging love-burger downtown For sandwiches - Beyond Bread For BBQ - Brother Johns is awesome For breakfast on a budget - Franks For breakfast with a bit more $- 5 points or Cafe A La Cart For mexican there's tons, but currently liking toto's For something different the ethiopian place in 5 points is awesome

    Lighted Nocks

    I bought the Deepower nock after watching a lusk archery review. They added 24 grains to the arrow (they are 32 and my existing nock was 8). I just googled the review and it looks like they updated to nock to prevent it coming on when you nock the arrow without chaing the weight. Battery lasts a while, and the dead ones I use when practicing so I have the right weight without burning the good ones up.

    Have you ever ate here?

    They do a good breakfast. If you walk in through the horns there's a bar with a few tables, if you walk in to the side (from the parking lot) there's a massive dining room. Always preferred the bar, burgers and breakfast are good.

    I have this set-up., didn't realize how protected the binos are from dust until I road out in a friends ATV. Range finder magnetic lid is great too. Great deal here for sure but I got mine on a black friday sale.. only a few weeks to go!

    AT&T or Verizon - which is better for hunting

    I used to have Verizon and switched last Black Friday to T-Mobile and cannot wait to go back. In the southern units Verizon wins

    Food vacuum sealer or the like

    I moved from a foodsaver to the big AVID Armor chamber sealer. It's awesome and half the price off most chamber sealers. Had it for a year, and no issues. The foodsaver is still needed if you have really long packages, but for fish it's extended the freezer life with no burn and works great on liquid.

    Coues Backpack Hunt Optics

    Yeah, I figured I'd lose that, it's bulky, but was trying to protect the housing. I only have the stay-on for the eye piece. With it off I bet it fits better on the side. I was strapping it on the rear. Thanks man!

    Coues Backpack Hunt Optics

    What pack do you have with that? I went 8 miles this weekend carrying 10s and the 65mm BTX with water, but getting it strapped in and balanced was a pain. I have the small K3 Exo and the carrying case on the BTX.

    38M still a hunt?

    I didn’t even think about checking regulations until after I picked my OTC tags this week but December 38M doesn’t appear to be in the regs… am I just missing it?

    38M still a hunt?

    Called G&F - They said it should have been in the Fall regs too, but it's still a Dec. 9th start for 38M.
  22. NewlyMinted

    38M still a hunt?

    Yep, it’s in the spring regs, but the 2022-23 regs modifies the spring 11M hunt to start July and doesn’t list the 38M. So wondering if it’s been taken off the list. For example spring regs say 11m starts august 20, but 22-23 regs say July 1. I figure I’m missing something.

    OTC Archery Report and Status page

    Awesome! Thanks! I couldn't scroll the status table unless I turned my iphone sideways. see if that helps you.
  25. Blackthorn is great, but for cleaning between shots I really like pyrodex. For me the pellets and powder by volume gave equal results out to 150yd I have a CVA ACCURA LR and have spent many fun days/weeks during the last couple years at the range… barrel is still pristine and my patch cleaning solution is windex and IPA. 777 left a crazy crud ring I didn’t like and couldn’t easily clean at the range. traded my half bottle of blackthorn a while ago because it was getting scarce and I’d just had excellent success with the pyrodex fwiw the bullets that worked best for me were 250 and 300g honedy sst have a ton of fun and let us know how your shoulder feels if you shoot more than 20 shots during a session..
