    recoil fear

    If we are talking hemp I would want the good stuff left in it. Some good suggestions. I’ll try some of them. Maybe I can get her to where she can at least pull the trigger without having some kind of seizure Rancilio thanks for the offer but I am a couple hundred miles from Tucson. I do have a trip to Sierra Vista planned this summer. Maybe then?

    recoil fear

    I may have an old manual laying around I can look it up. If not I’ll get one. She has target panic with the bow too. They’re both about the same. She hasn’t always been like this either. if I can’t get her past this I’m going to turn the tag in. The thing is she enjoys the outdoors so much I hate to see her quit hunting.
  3. My wife has a hang up with recoil and noise. I have tried numerous things with her centerfire but haven't had much luck getting by the severe flinching and jerking the trigger in anticipation of the shot. She has drawn an elk muzzy tag and now I need to start her on a muzzleloader. I was thinking of starting her on the lowest safe load of Pyrodex and working up to a heavier load over the next few months but haven't found much on the www about minimum safe load. Anyone have any suggestions? If I can't move her past this I think I need to talk to her about turning in the tag.

    Elk Draw Progress

    No tags in the mail. The 2 hunts she applied for were muzzle loader. Hoping for the early hunt.

    Elk Draw Progress

    I was in total shock. Two muzzy hunts, one of them early. We were already making plans to go fishing in Alaska when it happened

    Elk Draw Progress

    My wife was hit late Wednesday night and I know of two other guys that were hit yesterday.
  7. If your shoulder hurts alot get it checked out. I let mine go cause I was going to tough it out. Finally went to a quack doctor that only wanted to give me cortisone shots. I permanently lost over half the use of my left arm and I am looking at a reverse shoulder replacement in the not to distant future. Shoulders are nothing to fool with.

    CC Hit (First Elk Hunt) GEAR TIPS

    Boots! And like others have said, Camo is not needed on a rifle hunt. Also a good tent and comfortable sleeping gear. That is if you plan on going without a camper. A kodiak canvas tent is money well spent. I spent 2 weeks in mine on an elk hunt. Just happened to turn out my honeymoon was the same elk hunt.

    Border Mules

    I don't but the last evening of the archery deer season I was on a bunch of deer that suddenly spooked. I knew it wasn't me and wondered what happened. I went back to my utv and headed down a nearby two track. I topped a hill and there were two guys with rifles and packs that had crossed right where those deer were. This was in the middle of nowhere on the south end of the Vultures near an area we did a big cleanup about 10 years ago, much of it illegal drop off garbage. Lots of illegal activity in an area that most don't even think about
