    Bloodiest Guns

    Bloodiest would probably be my dads Winchester 1500 12ga. Hundreds and hundreds of dove have fallen to it. For big game would be my CZ 6.5x55. It has 1 elk and 2 deer on it.

    Adult onset hunter, first Elk tag

    Scout the elk the 2 weekends before your hunt. Try and find the elk during the weeks prior and identify what type of area they are in. Likely when you go on your hunt they will be in the same type of area or lower depending on weather and pressure.

    Unless you are hunting areas that you know will be very open, I dont like 6x being my lowest power. Something in the 3x-4x on the low power is better IMO. You don't need 24x on the high range of power unless you are shooting 1000+ yards. My opinion but that's me. I would be looking at something in the 3×15 type power range.
  4. I would hunt it 100%. The hunting is the important part, not the campfire.

    Berger 6.5mm

    Those are good bullets. We have a couple mule deer and a couple cow elk down with those over the last couple years.

    "Not going back that way."

    Bang.bang.bang.bang.bang.bang.bang.bang.bang.bang.click.click.click.click.click.click. F*ck that. If I didn't have a gun, I would have been doing my best Nolan Ryan impression with some of those big rocks.

    #4 buckshot? WTB

    Sportsmans avondale had a bunch yesterday of some off brand from Spain. It looked good and was $3 per box of 5. I bought 5 boxes. They had probably 50 left. It was all the way up on the top shelf of the shotgun shell isle.

    12aw late

    Hunt hard but dont pass on a good buck opening morning. I hunted 12ae early a few years ago and if I had passed the buck I shot opening morning I may not have gotten a shot after. Late is a little different but I wouldn't take the chance. My buck turned out to be about 167" which I am more than happy with. I had the smallest of 3 bucks at the check station when I checked mine in, but the other 2 bigger bucks were guided. Good luck on a great tag. Scout as much as you can.

    Benchee/Odes UTVs

    The best time of year for SxS is usually around May when it is to hot to hit the dunes and people start dumping them. That didn't happen this year. We will see if the trailer prices drop in Nov-Dec like they usually do after summer and hunting are over. I won't be pulling the trigger in a SxS until the prices come down unless I happen to find the right deal.

    Anything that has 4 wheels and can be tied to outdoor recreation is $$$ right now. Trucks, trailers, toy haulers SxS, etc. I honestly thought when covid started it would be the opposite because people wouldn't be able to afford there toys and have to sell them. I was wrong. We must have had a state full of "essential" employees because things just went crazy.

    Aztec Peak Road

    I was up it last year mid-October. It was fine except for the area near the bridges. Those had a bunch of loose rock stacked in the ruts. In a 4x4 it was easy, in a 2wd you would have been ok as long as you weren't being stupid. Other than that it was fine.

    WTB Glock 43X or P365

    Randall's had a 43x with teal frame last week.

    Hiking Adventure

    The family and I have started hiking on Sunday mornings to try and get more excercise. This weekend my wife was hoping to see some of the donkey's at Lake Pleasant Regional Park so we decided to hike Pipeline Canyon trail. 300 yards in with my 8 year old in the lead we find exactly what we didn't want, a 2' rattler crawling the trail too. I was right behind my 8yr old and yelled to stop and grabbed him. The snake went up to that little rock and curled up and got defensive. We backed off for about 5 minutes hoping he would leave, and when we moved back up toward him he decided it was best to get off the trail. We hiked the rest of the trail with no issues. The "floating bridge" must have been taken out by a flash flood because it was washed down river. We were 85% of the way done with the trail and had pretty much given up on the donkey sighting when I came around a corner and found these guys hiding in some shade.
  15. We need to be having threads detailing ammo if and when people find it. Feeding the guns is the hard part right now. Although Walmart had tons of 350 legend ammo this morning so maybe that will be the next caliber...
