    Input wanted - Hunting with a 10 year old

    Played this game last year. I found the key at least for me was to keep everything fun, from shooting to glassing. As far as shooting goes, I had issues trying to get my son to use a tripod for a rest. I found prone was the only way he was going to make an accurate shot. Kids love reactive targets from steel to balloons. I also brought ear protection on the hunt as he had serious flitch from sound, and it made him more comfortable. I keep his pack light and loaded down with plenty of snacks as kids burn thru them. I did let him bring a cell phone so he could play games while I glassed, ended up keeping him quiet and still for hours. Remember the hunt is for your kid and not you, I found myself pushing my son beyond his limits and making it uncomfortable for him. Most important thing is take your time and have fun in the outdoors with your kid. Oh yea be patient!

    WTB LH Youth Recurve

    Looking to buy a LH recurve for my 11 year old son. 15-20 lbs. Located in Marana.
  7. Have a KUIU icon pro 7200, live in Tucson but work outta casa grande. Buddy has a kirfaru I could probably grab if you want.
  8. Have had the Ridgeline in 6.5 CM for about two years. Followed the barrel break in to a "T" and the gun is a shooter. I found it like Bergers 140 VLD's. I was shooting .28" with HSM trophy gold with the 140 VLD Hunters. The gun is just over 3/4" with the Hornady Precision Hunters 143 ELDX. For the price and weight, it can't be beat. Sometimes I forget the gun is in my pack. I would go with the side vent brake as previously mentioned. I have been playing around with some loads with good results.

    My son's first deer

    My son drew the early 33 Jr hunt. Took him out of school on Friday to go on his first hunting trip. Glassed up a nice 2x at about 0730. I thought to myself that would be a good first deer for my son to shoot. I then noticed this guy lurking in the ocotillos. Trying to be calm I told my son he may want to shoot this deer instead. He has been talking about this hunt everyday since.

    Calling in lions.

    I am in the same boat with the frequent lion pics. Would it be better just to try and glass the lion up? If it didn't like your calling could you scare it out of area?

    Any bulls down

    Got this guy on the second day, 7w.
  12. I have had the Garmin Fenix 5x for a little over a year now and I love it. I mainly use it for fitness activities. The gps on the watch is convenient if you keep your gps buried in your pack like I do or it dies. Drawback are screen is small and hard to pan around. If you are outdoors a lot I would buy one, I wear mine everyday.

    Tripod head for BTX?

    What tripod head is everyone using for Swaro BTX? Was thing about manfrotto mv502ah. Any input is appreciated.
  15. Figured I throw this up here before dealing with the craigslist yard birds. Truck is the LB7 Duramax. Did injectors at 87k and added an Airdog lift pump. Only other mods are Rare part tie rods and Dmax store upper control arms. I am asking 20k OBO. Truck runs like a champ, paint is starting to "star" on hood. Only selling to roll cash into new house.
  16. Wanted to get something light weight yet accurate. Picked up a Christensen Arms Ridgeline in 6.5 Creedmoor, SeanP at SportOpic hooked me up with a great deal on a NF SHV 5-20x56. Threw on a Seekins Precision 20 MOA base with rings. Rifle all together weighed 8 lbs 11 oz's. Thanks to LanceTKenyon for mounting the scope. Started barrel break in today. Didn't really think it was necessary, I am just anal. Shot good with the Hornady Precision Hunter 143 ELDX, but shot great with HSM Trophy Gold VLD Hunting. (Pic Below). Cant wait to get this baby dialed in and get something in my crosshairs.
  17. Added Triad tactical stock pack and Accuracy1st anti cant level. Finished up with barrel break in and stretched it out to 300 on steel. Can't believe this factory HSM ammo. Group is photo is at 200 yds using Ballistic AE APP.

    Helinox Chair for Glassing?

    It works well when your tripod will fit over your lap. I find it comfortable when I can "spread" my tripod legs so I can glass while leaning back into the chair.

    Wilderness Athlete products

    I have tried most of their products. My favorite is energy and focus in tropical fusion. I get an energy boost without jitters and it tastes like a pina colada eegee. I buy them in the individual packets so I can throw them in my pack. The hydrate and recover is my second favorite. These are awesome especially during the August archery hunt. If you wanna go crazy mix them both together.You can find discounts codes online. I have seen them setup booths at trade shows and give free samples if you wanted to sample first.
