    Smith and Wesson Model 686

    How is this not sold in today's frenzy? There was a long line a Sportsman's Warehouse before it opened yesterday. Looked like Black Friday between SW and Costco next door. Good luck with sale

    Two beautiful bulls in two years

    My son, Lance, took a beautiful 6x6 (2nd photo) last Friday (9/27) on a muzzleloader hunt. The year prior he took the other 6x6 on an archery hunt. It is great to see a child succeed on a hunt. Lance turns 14 this October 13th. I am so proud of the fine young man he has turned out to be. Memories neither one of us will forget. Proud Dad, Shane Luke
  9. My son took this bull last Friday (9/27) w .50 cal TC Omega 130 grn pyrodex and 250 grn TC shockwave. First shot was at 18 yards. Hit shoulder bone which exploded bullet and bone with no penetration into chest. All he could see was brown fur at 18 yards so I don’t blame him for placement. Bull walked then ran out to 100 yards. He placed a shot mid body directly behind front leg. Perfect double lung, 20 yard death sprint, dead elk down. We found bullet w tip pressed in but otherwise whole in the hide on the opposite side. We may have lost the bull if second shot not taken. Amazed that at 18 yards he could still walk/run although shoulder was gone there was no damage to vital organs. After this hunt, I decided to check out the Barnes to see if I can replicate good shot group.

    good news?

    My 13-yo drew a U9 early bull elk muzzleloader tag. Hunt starts right after my 11-yo archery U9 bull elk hunt. September is going to be fun. PS Russia was not engaged to draw these tags. With 12-points myself I’m still more excited to guide these boys. I’ve already been up scouting. Good luck this fall.

    CC Hit (First Elk Hunt) GEAR TIPS

    You don’t have to spend a lot to enjoy the hunt. I get my game bags AKA pillow cases at Goodwill for $0.50 or less on 1/2 day. Harbor freight has tarps and other items. Really no need for camo on rifle hunt. Just warm clothes good boots and comfortable sleeping setup. Again there you can double two cheaper sleeping bags to get awesome comfort vs. expensive one. I use moving blankets from HF on floor and on top of bag in really cold nights. With four boys I had to Improvise otherwise I would be broke. Check out Craigslist and other classified ads. Hunter/Outdoorsman are gear nuts and always selling of stuff at good prices. Here is a screenshot of my meat knive set. Not one over $25 but do awesome job. Guess you could say I am RUNNING Cheap but having fun. But like other posts I own good glass Swarovski 8.5x42 EL (hand hold better than 10s)and 15X56 w tripod for long range. But my boys have Vortex which are great for price. Good luck this fall and enjoy the campfire.
