    Cedar Chest

    Hey Jeff , i think you got your woods mixed up just teasing looks great as usual - have you ever tried these hinges for those big lids ? I loved them for cedar chest lids they hold really well and are a Little stiff so the lid won’t slam shut and they hold the lid open as well ....... they also make a really nice lock that I liked that went on the inside , is all you do is drill one 1/2” hole I think it was and that’s all that’s shown on the front of the cedar chest - kinda makes it nice to be locked up . But as usual great work . Hope all is well! Tommy

    Is a .243 enough for a cow hunt?

    That’s what my kids use and we havnt had a problem - shot placement is key not caliber - broadside double lung - and 243 does a fine job .

    Ticks and javelina

    Why do javelina not have ticks and fleas ? Ive harvested 30+ javelina myself and been in on that many more with kids and family - including 5 this week - and had 100 more come in my shop and I have never seen a tick or a flea on them .... is it strictly because they have no “fur” under there coarse hair ? But ticks dig in and don’t need the fur to hang on to .... so why are they not on them ? Just curious - all other critters in the dirt are covered In them - jackrabbits / foxes etc ..... so why not them???

    Live Trap- trying to remove a coyote in town.

    Very difficult to get a coyote in a live trap - I’ve seen one personally and it was a young coyote .....cats and foxes no problem- coyotes not so much .....a foot hold would do it if it’s legal - not sure of the in city and all that stuff - but I wouldn’t count on catching him in a live trap .... just from my experience. ive got half a dozen traps your welcome to borrow and give it a try if youde like - I’m in Taylor though.

    Small elk cape needed

    I need a rag horn elk cape if any of you late hunters get a bull and don’t need the cape - have a guy that harvested his first ever elk - rag horn size - and his guide cut the cape in front of the legs instead of behind them - needless to say it’s a foot to short .... so need a replacement - Needs to have all the brisket / arm pit area / and front leg area - something that hasn’t been dragged out of the woods by a quad too thanks in advance !

    Kenetrek & danner hunting boots

    New in box womens danner desert TFX rough-out size 9M style 26018. New never worn . $100 Mens kenetrek hardscrabble LT hiker 8 M $350. No box but new, worn about 30 min around the house .
  10. I Have shot 2 like that & seen 5-6 others over the years .
  11. I had a guy order this pedestal several years ago and then decided he wanted a wall mnt after I built it - I’ve been kicking it around stumbling over it in my shop for several years and it needs a new home . He was going to have his glass guy put glass in the sides and glass shelves .... I never got around to it , but you could put glass shelves and put a bear/javelina/lion skull in It and would be pretty neat, or any other trinckets for that matter . It would hold a coues / muley / antelope just fine ..... any “ pose would attach to it , pedestal - wall pedestal or regular wall form would screw right to it ..... the base it 19” narrowing to about 13” at the top , the top piece is 25” across ..... 36” tall .... the brush / grass could be pulled out / redone to put what ever you wanted in for vegetation ..... $75 no idea why the pic are sideways or how to change them ....
  12. I’ve always been a VISA CC holder had a Cabela’s Cc for a long time ..... they are changing all our cards from VISA to MasterCard ..... anyone foresee a problem? Pros / cons of having to use a MasterCard ? Not sure I like them MAKING me change ..... will this be a good thing ? I’ve never had a MasterCard .... maybe I just don’t like change ..... if it ain’t broke don’t fix it .... IDK what do you guys think of it ??

    Bull Elk are Tough!!

    hsd a bull buggling his head off this morning chasing cows like nothing was wrong with him - my friends son snuck in on him and shot him at 44 yards . He had a little blood on his face thought he had took an antler tip while fighting - I boiled & cleaned the skull for him -a swacker broadness has went in side of face -angled through sinus cavity lodged in the bone under the eye . Arrow shaft had snapped off even with the hide . Bull acted like nothing was wrong
  15. Wish u were closer to Taylor - would love to have it .
