    My First Buck...

    I have been a part of 6 big game hunts since switching to a berger on the reccomendation of a very well known guide who frequents this site. My complaint was meat loss, etc. His response was would you rather lose an animal or a little meat? Talking bullets is like talking broad heads......everyone has an opinion. Shot placement....etc etc etc. With that being said I have either shot or been a part of 6 big game animals, one being an elk, shot with the VLD and each one of them had a hole in them about the size of plum or bigger. I can PM pics if you want to see. No tracking required when you hit them hard with a VLD. Great Buck J. Glad I was there, mostly.

    Black River

    In the rivers we were using in line spinners, Panther martins. At the lakes we were using night crawlers. We smoked em off the spillway on show low lake on crawlers. At big lake they were hitting pink powerbait garlic scent. On show low we were using bobbers but on Big we were split shotting. The bite was very good. I suspect if you show up with night crawlers and different power bait you'll find something that works. Good luck!

    Black River

    Been on a weekend fishing trip up here since Thursday. east fork was decent and silver creek was very good. However the lakes are producing better. Fished big lake, show low, and fools hollow. Limit every day rather quickly.

    Bear Archery Attack Bow

    I have a 2010 Bear Archery Attack bow for sale. 70lb limbs, right handed, set at 28" draw right now but its adjustable with the mod on it. Bow is in like new shape. I found a needle head size mark on the riser....see photo. Small set screw marks...see photo. Other than that, I could not locate anything else to note. The strings will need to be replaced in another couple of hundred shots. Asking $275. I am located in Tucson, however I frequent Phoenix weekly. Sorry the pictures are sideways. Turn your head I guess! Matt

    Bergers FAILED me horribly

    I'm not married to any bullet. I reload for many firearms and have my favorites for prairie doggin, yotes, pigs etc. I shoot hornady, nosler, bergers, all of them. This is just my experience. I have killed deer with Barnes, nosler both accubond, ballistic tips, and partitions, bergers, SMK...I'm sure I'm forgetting a few. I changed to Bergers 3 years ago on the recommendation of one of the most well known guides in Arizona.....not that it matters but I took advice from someone who sees many more animals killed every year than me. It took some time to get the load right. But when I did both for a 7mm rem mag 168gr and a 140gr 7mm08, the results have been insane. My family has killed 4 deer,1 elk, a couple pigs and not one has gone more than 10 steps. The results have been explosive and I mean explosive. I have photos if necessary. The bottom line is so many factors play a role in a bullets performance. You shoot the same bullet long enough your going to have a bad experience. Especially in adverse conditions and shooting over 400 yards. I love the nosler product. Swear by them. 2 years ago I watched my buddy 10 ring a WT at 300 yards with an accubond. Bullet didn't perform and it took 5 hours to find the deer double lunged. Got up and ran. Took another round to anchor it. Stuff happens. Doesn't mean all accubonds do that. My opinion only. I'll never change my big game round out of a .284 barrel. It will always be a Berger. I've seen too many animals dumped trucked with fist size holes in them to change now.
