    PSA For Quartering Game

    CBD balm or roll ons work wonders on knees. If you have not tried them you should. CBDMD is a good brand. I use their liquid tinctures for joint pains and muscle aches too. I almost never use ibuprofen now after switching to good CBD products.

    PSA For Quartering Game

    The pillow cases are good too, the zippered ones are a good idea. I like the bags I use because you can use the draw string to hang them with from a tree or what not. They are reflective too. One of the last rear quarters we had we hung in a tree and came back for it in the dark. It was super easy to spot. The headlamp made it shine.

    PSA For Quartering Game

    I just wanted to put this in the air to hopefully help others learn how to help make life easier while cleaning game. We were lucky enough to get to cut up 3 cow elk over the last week. The below items were invaluable. 1. Bring a clean painter's plastic drop cloth to put the mest on. The heavy duty plastic drop cloth from Home Depot can be cut in half and used for 2 different animals. 2. BRING KNEE PADS. This was BY FAR the most helpful thing I added to my pack for comfort this season. They were worth there weight in gold. We cut up 2 elk a few years ago and my knees killed because I didn't have knee pads. 3. Shape knives. I have a couple types of traditional blades that I love, and my buddy had a Outdoor Edge replacement blade skinner that was great. I have a small Gerber replaceable blade that I don't like, it is to small. This thing felt like a knife and you could work it easily. My traditional blades are a benchmade and a Knives of Alaska. Your choice, bring good blades. 4. Good game bags. Don't cheap out get something that works. I have found I like the black ovis XL bags. They are easy to clean, have reflective strips sewn in, and are strong.

    Hard Work Paid Off

    We did have a small saw one day 1 which cleared a decent amount. We ran into some big ones though near the end and we sent a guy to buy a bigger chainsaw. We got an 18" stihl and "sally" put in some good work on 3 big pines and 1 oak. We spent about 3hrs eachnday on 3 different days to get all the trees cleared so we could get where we were going. Luckily the biggest ones were near where we wanted to be so we hiked past them til we cleared them. We were in AZ.

    Hard Work Paid Off

    We had a great hunt. We had 4 tags and were able to fill 3 of them. We had alot of hard work to reach the elk grounds, and then had hard but successfully hunts. My buddy and I took 2 adult onset hunters out on a cow tag. One was on his first big game hunt. We were able to get my buddy on his first hunt a great opportunity, and he closed the deal with a nice clean shot. His cow went DRT. My long time hunting buddy was able to close the deal too on a nice one too. Tuesday evening I decided to make a final push as I had to leave Wednesday. We hiked in over 2 miles to get to our spot all uphill. I with about 20 minutes of light left I heard a bull chuckle behind me. I didn't know if he was a single or had a herd. About 10 minutes later the herd made it way into the meadow. The first 5 were a mix of cows and calves. They stayed grouped up so I didn't have a shot. A couple more straggled in, and 1 presented a clean shot so I took it. We packed her out in 1 trip. I am a big dude, but that sucked. I decided it sucked less than hiking another 4 miles round trip though. I took the cut meat and 2 hind quarters. My buddy took the 2 fronts and my rifle. It SUCKED, but we made it and have many awesome experiences and stories from the past week or so. Pic 1 is the first timer. Pic 2 is my long time buddy who got the biggest cow Pic 3 is upside down, but is mine.

    Bullet Trade 7mm 168gr Berger HVLD

    I cleaned out the inbox. Are they TSX or TTSX?

    Bullet Trade 7mm 168gr Berger HVLD

    The rifle is a 10 twist. It was shooting them 2.5+" at 100 yards. It shot the 150gr ELDX much better so I am going to try and use those to work a load or maybe some Barnes TTSX maybe.
  13. My rifle isn't fast enough twist to stabilize. I will trade these for a comparable lighter hunting bullet. Or other calibers too. Should be about 91 left in the box. 7mm (140-150gr) 6.5mm (140ish gr class) Located near arrowhead.

    Cheap/Free to Kids Scopes

    I have a few old cheap scopes that I want out of my garage. $25 each or if it is for a kid, you can have 1 free. Free scopes for kids will be 1 per person. If you pay for them buy 1 or more. 1 bushnell, 2 Simmons. The grey simmons has very fat duplex. The other 2 are normal duplex. Located in North Glendale near arrowhead.
