    Cleaning smoke off a mount

    Buck of a lifetime! Glad you got it back and are happy with it. They both look great up there.

    I believe that's the Universe telling you that you need a new rifle!

    Any amateur radio operators here?

    Back in the '80s I got my novice license. I tried looking myself up on the ARRL website but couldn't find anything by call sign or name. I'm sure it expired or the paperwork never go entered into the website once the Internet became a thing. Back in those days the novice had to show proficiency in Morse code. The only reason I passed the Morse code test was because the instructor felt bad for me. I was really bad at it. I was thinking about getting back into it now that they've removed the Morse code hurdle. I'll look into it more earnestly after seeing this post.

    Can you post a picture of your setup? I'm not sure how the sink faucet sprayer links up to the weed sprayer. Thank you.

    Bipod Height for Southern Units

    Good point on the grass height. On dry years there's not much grass and it's short but on wetter years, it can be waist high (or taller depending on the person and the grass species). My bipod is the Harris 25 S. (I find the swivel handy since the slopes/rocks rarely let you get perfectly level.) I confess that I know some excellent long-range shooters who do not like bipods. For me though, if I'm going to take a shot that's 300 yds. or more, I want to be prone with a bipod and Phoenix Shooting Bag (they make many sizes) under the buttstock. My advice for height is to get one for the tallest grass you may encounter but that also has height that fits you. (The 27 in. is a wee bit tall for me to shoot while sitting so I went with the 25.) The downside to bipods is that they add weight to the front of the rifle so they can be a bit unwieldy for offhand shooting. One often unappreciated upside of bipods is that you always have a stable place to put your rifle down when you're not carrying it. No scratches from laying it down on the rocks and no worry about it falling and knocking your scope off if it falls while leaning it against a tree.
  8. Any word on when (or if, maybe) the 2021 Coues Whitetail calendars will be available from the CWT.com store? Gracias.

    Outdoorsman panhead grease??

    I'm surprised at their reaction. I've always known them to stand behind their products and be helpful not just with maintenance and repairs. Let us know how this turns out.

    Field & Stream and Outdoor Life Maybe No longer

    Nooo! I hope not! I subscribe to both and look forward to them every month. First thing I do when I get my Field and Stream is to read David E. Petzal's "Ask Petzel" column. I like his curmudgeonly take on things.

    New to Arizona

    Welcome! The beauty of the Southwest is more subtle than the vibrant, verdant beauty of the East but if you slow down and pay close attention, you'll find the beauty of the Southwest to be sublime. And knowing there are many square miles of public land to get lost in is amazing. I'm from Michigan originally and although I have great affection of Michigan, I'll never go back.

    Trump tests positive for Covid-19

    Maybe. But generally, one is not admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for no symptoms.

    Tactical Naps - It's about time

    Ever get up early, hike for an hour in the dark to get to your glassing spot, and after glassing for hours feel the urge to lie down, stretch out, pull your cap over your eyes and have a quick sleep? Ever been shed hunting and after hiking for half a day feel the urge to curl up on a bed of comfy pine needles for a siesta? Well, don't feel guilty anymore or let anyone call you lazy, unfocused, or unmotivated. You're taking a tactical nap. My book of tactical advice is not exactly a best seller but I've been taking back country naps for years and, at the risk of seeming immodest, I'm really good at it. The Army is finally on board with the latest update to their health and fitness manual. Sleep is restorative, rejuvenating, and healing. I'm happy the military is realizing that. And I'm glad I have a new name for it; the tactical nap. Here's some info: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/01/us/army-naps.html This link contains some of the research and practical advice. https://www.pdhealth.mil/news/blog/tactical-naps-when-napping-can-be-good-you
