  1. Or get a packable rod and never worry about the stock.
  2. If you plan on shooting BH209 out of it, I recommend having the breach plug swapped out. Awesome ML's otherwise.
  3. Not sure which youth Turkey camp you are going to be at next month, but if it is by chance at the one in 6A, is there any way I could persuade you to bring one of the braked 7-08's you have so my son and daughter could try shooting them? They both drew cow rifle tags, and while he has shot some of my varmint rifles, she has only shot 22's and my braked AR. I have a varmint 243 they could shoot, but the twist sucks and it does not shoot the heavies well. Which then leaves me with a 260/6.5 or a 7-08. Been looking through old posts about rifles in the youth forum, and noticed you've offered several times to let folks try those out, so hopefully the offer still stands. Hope all is well.

     

    Thanks,

      Hey Jerry!  I will be there at the Happy Jack camp with both of my kids.  I will run it by both of them since they are their rifles, but I don't see it being a problem at all.  They are both usually very willing to help like that when it comes to getting other kids into hunting.  I can get back to you tomorrow after talking to them tonight.

      In all of the years we've been going to that camp together, I don't remember actually meeting you in person.  Looking forward to that.

      Best,

      Brian

    Reloading for Semi auto

    Never had an issue with not crimping my AR loads. I suggest using small base dies.

    Cali Fishing Early Feb - Recommendations?

    Best bet would be to call some of the landings and see if they have any boats going out. Do not think the Rockfish or Lincod season opens until the end of February.
  6. Curious to know which breech plug you switched to from the originals?

    Glassing Chair

    I've gone through several chairs, including the walkstool, and have been using a legless chair similar to the REI Trail Chair for about 6 years now. I like it because the side straps help provide back support, which is an issue for me with backless tripod style chairs. The fact it is a half pound lighter, or more, than all the tripod chairs is an added bonus.

    San Juan With My Son

    The Juan is a magical place. Glad to hear he had a blast.
  9. Heading down in the morning to scout out a new area, and was curious if anyone knew of any access issues, and current road conditions, getting back into Brush Corral trail head and Davis Spring trail head? Thanks.

    How is the glass quality on these, Lance? (And yes, I realize the price range they are at)

    Why not go with an RDS?

    Opinions on Husqvarna Rancher 450

    Used my 455 Rancher w/20" bar to cut over a dozen cords of wood each of the 3 years I lived in Gunnison, CO. Never had any issues, just adjusted for elevation changes and normal maintenance. Never owned a Stihl so I cannot compare, so cannot compare the two, but I know a ton of folks who run them. Solid bet either way.

    Smoker recomendations

    I have had an electric smoker, 3 different offset box smokers, a WSM barrel smoker, and a Traeger pellet smoker. I am currently looking to move into either a MAK 1 star or Yoder YS640 pellet smoker. Enjoyed nothing about the electric smoker. Loved the smoke flavors of the box smokers (especially when I had my property and own supply of mesquite), but I messed up many of my longer smokes due to not waking up often enough to maintain the temp. The barrel smoker and Traeger were both smaller than I wanted, but I love the ease of using a pellet smoker, hence why I am looking for a MAK or Yoder. I still have my weber gas grill for searing and grilling, and should I ever decide to get rid of it, would likely just get a hibachi.
