    10mm suggestions

    If you’ve got big hands is the grip on the 29 too short or can you add a pink extender like the Ruger short mags for SR9c?

    A recruited hunter's perspective on R3

    Steve Rinella recruited Joe Rogan who recruited you... that's a pretty straight line. I personally was self-recruited after drinking beers with and chatting to a friend who muzzleloader hunts elk as often as he can in AZ and shared his stories over the course of 5 years, and then by me going quail hunting for the first time with (who turned out to be) my father in law. My buddy didn't take me into the woods, I decided to learn on my own. I landed at this forum after watching hours of video and reading a bunch of books. 2 forum members reached out for moral support on my first muzzleloader season and we've stayed in touch. A 3rd forum member showed me the ropes and shortened my learning curve on bow hunting this year. I dream of heading into no-cellphone-coverage areas and spotting and learning about deer, javelina, and if I ever get to elk. Obligations keep me pretty grounded, but every chance I can get I'm heading to the desert. Your journey is whatever you want it to be, but to say R3 is not working doesn't seem right. There isn't a direct link from the FWS funded efforts and how I started to hunt, but I'll bet there's a good linkage that might not have been there without the R3. That and most hunting shows want you to buy the sponsored products or merch (which I happily do for one of them). I fully agree on the marketing of the idea of hunting - that's it's not just blood and murder - but hunting is like most other hot button issues, the first sentence is out and most people have made up their minds. It's about awareness with how hunters talk to other about hunting and the slow crawl normalizing that conversation in my opinion.

    Unit 15 NM turkey

    So just gonna start this by saying that I don’t know what I don’t know. This was my first turkey hunt and a new area compared to where my hunting partner normally goes. We hunted about 10 miles north of Luna up against the AZ border. Spent 4 days up there, scouted and walked in to some amazing country. Saw a couple of small groups of elk, but the woods were quiet and absent of fresh sign. I hunted with someone who’s been hunting turkey in NM for decades. We did hear wolves the first day sounding off either side of us the first morning. Everything was eerily quiet in the woods (‘just absent of sound generally) and over the 4 days the wind was everything from strong and gusty to still. Temps were around freezing at night but always sunny and good during the day. If it was Canada goose season we’d have limited out for sure. Other hunters we talked to, and most had been up there since weds, saw nothing, some left or relocated day 3 or 4. Some have successfully harvested turkey a few years in a row. The game warden said there were birds up there by suggested the winter had been very dry, so they might not be coming in, he also said that the coyote problem was bigger since people were afraid to hunt them. Every other tank and pond had water (some were large puddles), and the small meadows seemed to be perfect. We just saw nothing. We have planned on being much further south in a couple weekends, but wondering how everyone else opening weekend went in NM?
