    Dual spotter/ Big eyes case

    I'm paying attention to this.

    Long Range Fixed Blade Field Point Accuracy

    No problem man. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    Long Range Fixed Blade Field Point Accuracy

    Innerloc carnage and innerloc shapeshifter. By streamline I pretty much mean no blade surface exposed. That seems to be the only way to guarantee field point type accuracy. I've tested more broadheads than I like to admit paying for, and I've come to the same conclusion that you have, even most mechanicals can be very tough to get to hit with field points at extended ranges. This innerloc heads are something special though. They aren't without flaw, but they are the most accurate ive had my hands on. Their only flaw really is that they can be fragile in the quiver. But it's a trade off I willingly accept for the accuracy.

    Long Range Fixed Blade Field Point Accuracy

    I killed my last elk with one. I killed my last elk before that with a cut on contact slick trick razor trick and penetration on both was the same. Stopped at the hide on the offside on both elk. Dead in 100 yards or so on both.

    Consistent long range accuracy=streamline mechanical broadhead.

    CVA Accura v2 set up

    You can order a muzzleloader online and have it sent right to your door step unlike a centerfire rifle. Muzzle-loaders.com seems to have some of the best deals.

    CVA Accura v2 set up

    I'm shooting to 325 yards. The only reason I don't shoot further is because the energy and bullet speed drop off any further than that. I get consistent 3.5" groups at 325 yards and that's a conservative measurement because many times the groups are much better. 200 yards and my bullet holes are touching. Ive tested this load with a cold bore, hot bore, clean bore, and even after 15 shots without swabbing and the accuracy and POI changes very little if any at all. The first shot with a clean bore is usually high about an inch at 300 yards. I hunt with a dirty barrel. I also used to weigh my charges but it became a pain at the range so I just started using a volume measurer and it seemed as if there was very little difference. I believe that this is because with 120 grains of blackhorn in a 27 inch barrel, a small portion of the powder doesn't get completely burned, so any small variances in powder charge means very little. That's just a theory though.

    CVA Accura v2 set up

    I've tried most everything in my accura v2. It's a little finicky. I settled on 120 gr blackhorn by volume with 250 gr traditions smackdown carnivore bullets inside of harvester black crush Rib sabots. I spent tons of time and money on all kinds of other combinations and just about gave up on the gun and finally just mixed and matched what I had and stumbled into this load. Save yourself some money and give it a try first. It is freakishly accurate in a gun that appeared to not be very accurate at all. From what I can tell, the smackdown carnivore bullets are just rebranded Berry's blue diamond bullets so you can maybe try them too instead.

    Kowa TSN 554

    It's one of the best purchases ive ever made. It's amazing. You can hardly tell it's in your pack. It blows every other spotter in it's class out of the water. I wouldn't recommend it for trying to locate animals with because of its narrow field of view. But for sizing animals up that you found with your binos, I wouldn't carry anything else. Not a swaro. Not a zeiss. Nothing. Unless, I was planning on hardly ever getting more than a mile away from the truck. Then I would use the big 85mm kowa. Or the big stx swaro. The image quality of the little 554 kowa is so close to the 65 swaro that you couldn't convince me to take the weight penalty of the swaro. It does have a narrow field of view and also short eye relief. But the weight and space savings makes you forget about those two things real quick.

    New Mexico UNIT 27 Mule Deer... HELP Please

    I didn't hunt mule deer. I hunted whitetail. I saw multiple 130-140" type deer. Most of the deer that I saw were huntable huntable by day hunting. I didn't see anything at all that intrigued me enough to want to backpack hunt it if I had the mule deer tag. There were multiple camps with mule deer hanging from Geronimo trail to cloverdale. I would say the public stuff gets hunted pretty hard. Most of the really good mule deer turf that I saw was locked up pretty tight and posted heavily. You shouldn't have a problem filling your tag. But finding a big old deer might be a different story. I could be wrong.

    New Mexico UNIT 27 Mule Deer... HELP Please

    All flat land around the base of the MTN range in the unit has mule deer. Private property is tricky but there is plenty of huntable deer. Focus on all of the flat mesquite draws that leave the mtn range headed into the valley on the east side of the range. It's an over rated unit in my opinion unless one has access to private land.
