    Eberlestock X2 Multicam

    My opinion. These X2 are awesome packs. Small enough for a day pack. Big enough to hump an elk quarter out. Not an overnight or deep backwoods pack. But that metal frame makes it a good strong pack. Throw a scabbard on and it good to go. Ive carried lots of game out with this pack. Usually helping a buddy. Haha wish it was my game. But it always impressed the people I was hunting with. I don’t know the seller. Just a vote for a great pack

  10. So i had the pleasure of hunting with my two older boys for the first time in 7 years. Both were competitive swimmers and missed most hunting seasons due to trips and then college. So after a long absence we hit the southern hills for a coues hunt. Glasses up two shooter bucks first morning and they slipped us on three different stalks the first two days. Great hunting though we were having a blast but starting to think these bucks had us beat. Third morning the wind was howling and everything seemed bedded out of the wind. We flipped to a side of the canyon that we thought would block the wind and just before 10am we caught them moving to beds. After some leap frogging to keep them in the glass and move to a shooting spot. The best we could do was 420yrds and we couldn’t get low enough to get out of the wind that was swirling around the top of the ridge line. My oldest got set up and we waited for a couple hours hoping it would stand up. During the time we went back and forth on the two bucks. One a classic 3x3. Most likely 85-90 so good solid buck. But we could get away from the old 2x2 with him. He was unique with great mass and tall. Big body and we just couldn’t pass on him. Yea the 3x3 would score better and look good but this old deer had to be taken. Finally we said let’s take him in his bed if you fell good. I know my son felt confident with his old 30-06. Not the perfect Coues rifle but he trust it and it shoots great. He didn’t have a BT so we were working out the drop at 420 and one of his reticle hash marks lined up good. So he went hot and let it fly. Deer came busting out. Shot was high. He found it again on the run up the to the top and fired an ill advised shot missing Unlike most coues I’ve hunted this buck granted him one last perfect broadside at the top. Reset he fired and the buck went ten feet into a prickly pear and folded up. Ranged 465. Double lung. Side note. Using new Sierra Gamechanger bullets. Went through and blew half a lung out a hole about the size of a quarter. Minimal internal damage. Nice bullet in the wind for sure. Couldn’t have had a better hunt with my two oldest boys after a long gap in the field. Enjoy the pics

    Yea it’s a 2x2...

    At SW Taxidermy today (great shop) and we were guessing the score most said 80 or so maybe high 70. They taped it and we went, no tape again. And again. 96 7/8 wow would not have guessed that. Thanks for the laughs today and the name of Forkasaures.

    Yea it’s a 2x2...

    deer activity was pre rut. these were the only two bucks that we saw together but the one we shot did run off the other deer one day when some does came in. we saw one other big buck that with does but other than that all other bucks where by themselves and it didn't seem like they were getting ready. the does were all very active and up all day. spikes were not with does rather out on their own. we had a serious full moon so that may have changed patterns some. necks didn't seem swelled up, and no classic nose down movements. not sparing. I'm not an expert and have only hunted Mule rut, but it seemed like it was still a bit of time from the rut

  23. So my family was up camping in the White mtn Apache nation and we heard what sounded like a strange mix between weak elk bugles and not quite coyote noise. So my son packed up to go investigate and he took this pics. We think it was a Mexican wolf with two pups. And a coyote stalking the pups. He was in a bowl with a Meadow in the bottom and then trees all around the bowl. The mama would stare at him and bark like a dog. You’ll see she has the collar if you zoom in. Then in two spots surrounding him in the bowl she would call to what he thinks were other wolves and they’d call back. Then There are two smaller pups following her. And then a lone coyote we think lurking behind them. He was about 100 yards away so when he was there he thought he was just looking at coyote it wasn’t until he got home he blew up the pics and saw the collar and what he thought was a coyote looked like a wolf. We’ve never seen Mexican wolves so we thought this page in the forum would have some knowledge. Is that a wolf and pups. And then a yote? Their sound are unlike anything we’d heard before. We’ve heard hundreds of bugles and coyotes this was different. Hope you enjoy the pics. Glad to know your thoughts Pics are in order of mama, mama, pup,pup, coyote Hope they post that way

    Wolf with Yotes??

    Greyghost85. That’s exactly what he saw. Dog in last pic looked like a coyotes chasing the mamas wolf pups. One coyote though? Crazy right?
  25. So our family rented a lake up on the White Mtn Apache Nation and the boat we had lined up fell through. Looking to rent a little 12/14ft aluminum with no gas motor. troll only. I'd like to pick up in Phx metro next Tues/Wed and I'd have it back one week later. I will sign a form taking financial responsibility for it with an agreed value and happy to leave you a signed check posted dated to when i need to return as protection for full value. Copy of license any other form to make you comfortable that I'm not a jackass. Was kind of hoping $200 or so would be fair but open to options. thanks Chad
