    Montana lion

    Congrats, nice lion. He is a tank! Not too many cats will go over 150 on a scale. The reason he looks heavier than that is that all the other cats you see in pictures that are supposedly 150 pounds are actually 120.

    Big Herds, Small Bucks

    I have noticed the same thing. In one area we hunt you generally see about 10 bucks per day. You have to look at a lot of bucks to see one that will break 100". In another area you see 1 or sometimes less bucks per day, but about 1 out of 3 will be over 100" and the potential of seeing a 110"+ is much higher as well.

    Uh oh...

    Just ran across this. Sounds perfectly safe to me. Sarc https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/even-when-sober-frequent-marijuana-users-are-worse-drivers-report-n1115681

    Uh oh...

    So whats next after legalizing Marijuana? Most of the same arguments can be made about heroin, meth, cocaine, etc. These drugs destroy peoples lives and their families lives as well. Colorado used to be a beautiful state with low crime and you could tell a big difference as soon as you crossed the NM border. Now I go up to visit family there and it looks like my home state of NM, which is not a good thing. Beat up, junky cars with smoke rolling out the windows. Speak to any long time resident there and they will tell you about the effects of marijuana legalization.

    Mountain lion or Bobcat??

    Looks like a bobcat to me. Did she see whether it had a long tail? To me it looks like a standard bobcat tail, but the perspective is very bad with the tail coming at the camera which could easily distort the length.

    My 13A Muley

    Congrats desertsheep on an awesome buck! Some people need to go back to grade school and learn once again that "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." Unless you were personally wronged, I don't think anyone cares what you have to say.

    NM to TX Road Trip. Gun Transport Info Seeked

    In NM your vehicle is considered an extension of your home. As far as I know there is no problem with having a loaded, concealed weapon inside your vehicle.

    Desert Landscaping Question?? HELP PLEASE!!

    Your dad's oncologist is an idiot if he actually believes that. There are no peer reviewed studies showing a link. A jury in California awarded a person money who claimed that RoundUp caused their lymphoma. This does not mean there is any real evidence that it actually does. Kind of like the breast implants and all the supposed cancers and maladies that they caused back in the 90's. The studies eventually showed no correlation at all, but the lawyers and their clients never had to pay the money back that they were awarded by idiot juries who have no idea how to read a scientific paper. And people wonder why healthcare and medical devices cost so much. As to killing the yard. Hit it with a heavy dose of glyphosphate in the fall. Hit it again in late spring. This should take care of most of the grass. Do not use plastic. I had to tear out a bunch of it when I bought my house 6 years ago. It pokes up through the rocks or mulch and looks like heck. A "soil" will eventually form on top of it with blown in dust and the weeds will just grow on top of it. Chemical warfare is the way to go. Pre-emergents are your friend to keep weeds from growing.

    Never thought i would turn this tag back in

    I never really believed the less rain = bigger antelope theory until this year. In my area of SE NM we have had a super dry year. My brother is a taxidermist and has taken in over 20 antelope so far this year and on average they are definitely the biggest I have ever seen. Multiple 80"+ goats this year and generally this is a low to mid 70s area. I have a lot of antelope that water on my property on the edge of town and they max out horn growth at 3-4 years old and really drop off after that from what I have seen.

    2020 grizzly hunt in Russia

    I have not done the hunt myself, so take this with a grain of salt. I was told this information while hunting with a Russian outfitter in Azerbaijan for Tur, so it is straight from the source who has been on many of these hunts. I asked him about the Kamchatka Moose and Bear hunts. He said the moose are spotted by helicopter, the client is flown in and then they go and kill the moose. Bears are either hunted from snowmobiles and run down on them, or spotted from a helicopter pretty much the same way as the moose. Success rates are good, but it doesn't sound like "hunting" in my book. I was amazed he didn't try and sugar coat it at least a little bit. I lost any desire to do these hunts in Russia after hearing this. If it were me, I would look into Alaska. The snow sheep hunts all sounded like real hunts that are similar to dall sheep hunting in Canada or Alaska.

    Mountain House 30% off

    Wise food tastes pretty terrible. I always add some extra spices that I pack along, but still not as good as mountain house.

    Horny Toads

    See tons of them in many areas of NM. These are some more interesting colored ones from an area with Malpais and sand.

    Backpacking on a budget

    Look at the more "hippie style" backpacking brands. They are good quality and much cheaper than the hunting brands (ie Kuiu, Sitka, Kifaru, etc.) Check out E-bay. You can get used stuff pretty cheap on there.

    Sitka blacktail

    Once, on Kodiak. It was a difficult but good hunt. Where (in elevation) and how you will be hunting really depends on the dates you choose to go hunting.

    Peep Spacer

    I put one on an Omega and ended up going with the Williams FP receiver sight. I ran into the same problem with the WGRS sight that you are having. I think the FP sight is better built anyways. I did have to sand away a small area of the stock to make it fit right. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/115737/williams-fp-t-c-receiver-peep-sight-encore-g2-omega-scout-aluminum-matte
