    My first predator season

    Very nice job getting past the predator learning curve and welcome to the site. Time in the field with that lion tag in your pocket, you will run into an opportunity eventually. FWIW, I have run into 4 in the last 2 years, all 2-3 miles from the nearest trailhead in 3 different units.

    You've been sure to already let everyone on CWT know that.

    Canning game meat

    How long is the shelf life on one of those?

    Good choice. He'll gain a couple more grand in value in a few years!

    Google with the site-specific method works best for me when I really need to find CWT history. I just happened to be the OP on this search hit. https://www.coueswhitetail.com/forums/topic/90535-home-videosecurity/

    Question about 6.5 creedmoor

    143 ELDX have killed everything I've pulled the trigger on with one shot to include lion, deer and sheep from 90-450 yards. My 20" barrel gets 2735-2750 FPS with Hodgdon Superformance and shoots sub-MOA on a bad day. Lots of fragmentation is the norm, which would be the only reason for me not to recommend it as a hunting-specific bullet. I prefer hunting bullets to hold together for the sake of the meat. That said, in a slow moving 6.5 CM, it is still an excellent choice. I wouldn't use the ELDX in fast/caliber cartridges as there are much better choices to virtually eliminate potential meat loss. It keeps 1000 ft-lbs out to 850 yards and minimum expansion velocities beyond 1000 yards. Much, much farther than I would shoot on game. "The new Hornady ELD-X™ hunting bullets are designed to deliver the highest BC possible for the specific bullet caliber and weight. They also provide match level accuracy at long range and effective terminal performance from maximum safe initial velocities down to ~1600 fps."

    Learning Taxidermy

    I see progress in every mount. Great job, Adam! I'd be proud to hang that carp on my wall!

    WTB Small ATV Trailer/Cart

    Looking for a small trailer or more likely a dump cart that tows behind an ATV off-highway, something 48" or less width and cheap. Anything like that sitting around? Thx.

    Big AZ Trout on the Fly

    Anyone willing to share any proven methods or fly patterns that big trout in AZ have taken? Speaking mostly to holdovers in the deeper mountain lakes and not interested in spots. I'd be happy to trade detailed crappie tactics or anything else I know via pm also. Thanks for any info!

    Different brass question

    I sorted out the first 25 pieces from a box of new Lapua brass that had the roundest, most uniform necks and loaded them after an established load was made with FL size prep, no chamfer/debur. They shot identical. I did the same with Norma brass in a different gun and had great results also.

    East Valley vehicle air condtioning service needed!

    Not sure how old is "older" but those recharge cans at your local auto parts store are cheap to try if compatible.
