    Kifaru Hoodlum vs 44 Mag

    I have the hoodlum. Add a sherman pocket to it and its a phenomenal day pack, and an even better 8 day pack. It does both very well.

    Rifle options - recommendations wanted

    Sauer and sons model 100 is often overlooked but they are well made and extremely accurate.

    Compact Spotter with 15s

    I carry the 554 with 12's if I'm not carrying my twin kowas. I would not just assume the swaro is better unless either you or someone you trust has compared them side by side. The 554 is amazing for what it is. The swaro is likely amazing as well but my advice would be not to jump into the swaro without hearing from somebody with zero bias that has compared them both. Finding somebody with zero bias towards swaro is tough sometimes. I own swaro glass btw so not just a kowa fan boy.

    Kowa TSN-553--$1300

    1100 is an insane deal. At retail cost, I would take the kowa 553 or 554 over the swaro sts or ats all day long. Try finding a swaro ats 65 for 1100. The only reason this hasn't sold is because most people are clueless to how good these little scopes are and how good kowa is in general. Good luck with the sale man. If I didn't already own one I would take it off your hands.

    Trail Camera Question

    Not sure I follow on this example.

    Trail Camera Question

    It's very simple to me....don't use a camera to locate animals you intend to harvest, and dont harvest animals you located with a camera. The guy just wants to set a camera out with his kids for god's sake. Cameras are not illegal to use. The commissioners made that very clear on the blood origins podcast which I assume most people here did not listen to. You just can't use them to locate animals and then hunt those animals. You can knit pick the rule all you want. Interpret it how you'd like, but based on how the rule is written, you can use a camera legally for anything you please except for collecting information that will aid you in a hunt or harvest. It doesn't change the rule or the way the rule was written. If you weren't allowed to have a camera out in the same unit you were hunting, the rule would state that. The rule is vague. Very vague. But it is also clear at the same time. Use a camera with your kids Vowell. Just don't set the camera out with the intent to get pictures of animals you intend to hunt. And don't hunt any animals you happen to get on camera even if you did not intend to get that animal on camera. It's literally that simple. And if you don't want to risk it and would prefer not to put cameras out at all, then that's fine too. But it's your loss IMO.

    Trail Camera Question

    "which states that a person shall not use a trail camera for the purposes of taking or locating or aiding in the take of wildlife, becomes effective Jan. 1, 2022." This is the rule. What you are trying to do is completely legal as far as I can tell. The rule says nothing about unit boundaries, or a timeframe or anything like that. So just don't shoot a buck you have a picture of and you're good. And don't set a camera out with the intent of finding a deer to shoot. If your intent is only to take pictures of random animals with your kids, have at it. I respect the game and fish's ruling on this, but it's a shame that they wrote the rule in a way that makes regular citizens feel like they may become criminals for simply just setting out a harmless trail camera with their kids. Trail cameras are only illegal if you intend to hunt what you get pictures of. Don't let anybody tell you any different.

    I know a guy personally that had drawn his sheep tag as well as a deer tag out of the resident pool.

    Kowa 55 series

    I love mine. Impressive glass.

    what kind of range?

    You need to know your velocity at the muzzle and calculate it at different distances using an app. Then check what minimum velocity your bullet is rated to open at. Bullet expansion is what matters imo. 90 grain charge isn't gonna give you much velocity. Also, the 250 grain sst's have a questionable reputation at lower velocities.

    Alpine fishing?

    I took a pile of kids to one of the body's of water you mentioned over the weekend. Every kid limited out rather quick. Daughter caught a 21 inch rainbow. We absolutely slayed em. Kept everybody's limits and threw tons back. Every other group we talked to hadn't caught anything. Tiny hooks, power bait, and 2 ft leader and you'll smash em.
