    Browning BLR 30-06 Stainless

    spare mag is $65, at least it was 20 years ago when I bought one good gun, I put Warne detachable scope mounts on mine and left iron sights in place, so if horse falls and buggers up scope can still use the gun, even tho it's been years since I hunted horseback

    Got a deer tag unit 7 any tips?

    scout early, scout often, find water and a vantage point to glass from, always best to have multiple spots to hit if someone beats you to plan A

    Smoke up some meats

    I have an old Little Chief from about 1975 I use all the time. Adds a lot of flavor to a ham or bacon. I smoke cheese quite a bit too, Queso Panella, need to make a tinfoil boat tho because has a lot of moisture. Have done raw hams, smoke for a few hours for flavor then finish in the oven.

    Vortex Viper HD 15x50 Binoculars - Sold

    this is decent glass, had a pair for years as backups or loaners, really nice to be able to set people up with their own glass when you take them out, especially kids. The Outdoorsman stud works in them, better than the Vortex system. Plus they are lighter than Swaro's if you are trying to cut weight.

    Help With Score Guess

    they call them burro bucks, not unusual in desert mule deer, have seen some good ones. As far as score, not important, would you shoot him or not, for me I would be more than happy to bring him home. Don't think it would hit 180 but pushing it, next year probably.

    Diesel Fuel in a Trickle Tank

    yes it was drained, cleaned and refilled, I know some of the folks that put in a lot of hours doing it, lots of conjecture whether it was another hunter on a close by waterhole or anti-hunters

    Scouting a new area

    a few times I came back to camp and water and trail mix was gone, not sure if other hunters did it or border jumpers. Have had them come into camp when I was breaking it down, gave them all the questionable food I was going to chuck when I got home. Told them good luck and run fast. Did glass up a few drug loads down there, point man and tailgunner with AK's. I always have a pistol on my side down there even tho I am packing a rifle. Bad shoot happens to good people all the time.
