  1. My buddy is looking to buy a Swarovski 10x50 SL binoculars. This is the porro prism type, and not the roof prism type that Swarovski now makes. I think Swarovski made the 10x50 SL model in the late 1980’s to mid 1990’s. Please PM me if you have a pair that you are willing to sell, their condition, and let me know how much. I am in Flagstaff but go to the Valley often, and can get them from you there. thanks Let’s Go Brandon!

    I think I just saw an ad in Craigslist here in Flagstaff for a male and female, 5 years old, for $1,000 if you are interested just passing it along

    Need a storage shed transported

    I did pretty much the same thing except my shed was 9x13. Moved it from Queen Creek to Flagstaff back in 2013. My diesel truck got 4 MPG because of the wind load on the shed on the drive up to Flagstaff. Yep, red neck ingenuity. When I think back on how I did it, it still impresses me. And like you, never doing that again.

    1991 Jeep YJ Wrangler

    I have a clean title, 4 cylinder, 5 speed manual transmission 1991 Jeep Wrangler for sale. Has a 9K Ramsey winch, 2 different soft tops, bikini top, slider windows, new battery, new 32” tires, 116K miles - some of them from being flat towed, tow bar, 3-1/2” Fabtech lift, new exhaust system. Runs great. Good body. No rust. I bought it in 2011 from a guy in Safford. It had 93K miles on it when I bought it. Has offset rims and wider fender flares for total tire coverage. I’ve done a lot of work on it. Just don’t drive it anymore. Think I’ve only driven it about 400 miles the last 2 years. It’s currently in Mesa. Asking $7,800.00

    RV tank monitor and battery level system upgrade

    A buddy of mine who owns an RV shop said to use two 6 volt batteries wired together instead of one 12 volt deep cycle. When I asked why, he said when you plug your trailer into your truck, the voltage in the back of the truck typically is less than 12 volts so you are not really sending much power to charge the trailer batteries when plugged into your truck. it’s what he said. I figured he must know what he is talking about as he does it for a living

    Sad news- Hoghunter

    Only met him one time. I met him at his house to pick up some ammo I bought from him about a month ago. Kids toys and stuff were on the porch. My “good guy O-meter” went off when I was there. I will pray for his family that they find peace and comfort.

    Mini 14

    I can hit a volleyball sized target at 100 yards say 8/10 times if I don't shoot in rapid succession. I am told you can have work done on the gun and bring it down to a softball size with the same 8/10 shots. Fun gun to own, that is for sure.

    Unusual elk sighting

    I saw a dead cow elk on I-10 between Wilcox and Bowie. Couldn't believe it was an elk, so stpped to look at it and sure enough it was. That was back in 1993.

    An interesting question for you all...

    I have spent quite a bunch of time in 6A. Quite a bunch. Lots of elk in the unit. Haven't seen that many 350" bulls compared to the amount of bulls I have seen (meaning percentage wise, the percentage of 350" bulls compared to the number of bulls is low). It is not a trpohy managed hunt unit like there are in some other units in this State (say for instance Unit 10). I would hope for a 350" bull, but I would be realistic with my expectations. If the right opportunity presents itself with a bull you would you would be satisfied with, I would wouldn't hesitate to shoot. There is much much more to having a "successful" hunt than the score of the animal. On some of my most "successful" hunts, I didn't come home with a score at all because I didn't take an animal. It is all about the enjoyment and memories and not the score. Hunt the entire hunt hoping for a 350" bull but enjoy and savor your hunt. It may be years before you draw another tag. Just my opinion.

    hunting in patagoina

    Used to live in Tucson back 15-20 years ago.and hunted 35B quite a bit. Shot a 97" coues in the canyons southeast of Harshaw. Mearns were fun to hunt too - ore to the east of Harshaw. Haven't been down there in 15 years. I heard the illegal immigrant problem has worsened. Looked at buying property in Duschene (sp?) - liked the area but was worried about vandalism being I couldn't live there and the illegal problem (I lived and worked in Tucson).

    Optic suggestions for upcoming elk hunt

    for budget numbers for $1000 bucks: $200 on a rifle scope (maybe look at Burris - decent quailty without spending big bucks) $100 on a tripod $400 on binos (maybe look at Nikon, Pentax, Burris or Minox - get around a 10 power) $300 on a spotting scope if you really think you need a spotting scope (I wouldn't - not for a cow hunt - you are not judging antlers or something) You'll spend 80% of your time looking through binoculars mounted on a tripod - spend your money there (again, maybe even spend the spotting scope budget on really good binos) Look at Ebay - lot of people selling their stuff because of the poor economy (I just bought a pair of Swarovki 7X42 SLC for $620 delivered) Just my 2 cents
