    Nice tine length on your buck and cool NT you handed over to your brother. Looks like you ate well too.

    Youth Rifle Recommendations for Big Game

    One thought is to get a rifle with a chassis stock so you can easily adjust LOP as he grows.

    Youth Rifle Recommendations for Big Game

    My thoughts lean towards the Tikka T3x Lite in 7mm-08. In addition to cutting down the stock for proper length, you might try the add-on changeable closed grip with the Tikka to address the grip to trigger distance for smaller hands. You might also look into the Browning Micro Midas.

    What Caliber For Rebarrel?

    I'd stick with the the 257 WBY. Sounds like it has some sentimental value as first rifle and first game kill with it. Plenty a good bullets in 25 cal to be had for Coues. 257 will have a little less recoil than 264WM. Don't know if your rifle will be braked or with suppressor. You said you had access to 7mm (possibly for elk?), so a 257 offers a greater caliber difference.
  6. Dogs love peanut butter, mine included, but some peanut butters may contain the sugar alcohol Xylitol which could kill your dog. Make sure your pack of sugar-free Trident or Mentos gum is not on the counter either. Even small amounts of Xylitol can cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), seizures, liver failure or even death in dogs. Here a couple of lists of peanut butters and other foods that contain Xylitol: https://www.preventivevet.com/xylitol-products-toxic-for-dogs?fbclid=IwAR0HczR1V78nssDOKGTd6-UKjyy8AeSsWLd_mVB-h82O9IB3sibNJL76JZE https://www.seniordogdays.com/alphabetical-list-of-peanut-butter-for-dogs/?fbclid=IwAR1VvyUPSXPahbgxQOkHVcxINEifxTB6KZXMpYBWBSUcW_hr4lhJ1L6LDSE

    Colt Python is Back!!!

    The sweetest revolver I ever shot was a friend's Python. This was back in the 80's.

    Bucket List Hunts

    I had a lot of fun on my DIY Wyoming antelope hunt several years ago in a premium unit. I am sitting on 9 points now and have been looking at units and draw odds to possibly cash in. We'll see how hard this winter is. Time off, as you said, is a limiting factor and has caused me to just buy points as I have had other hunts in AZ. AZBIG10, your wife has a good idea about WY antelope, flyfishing and hot tubs that could be fun and done several times through the years.

    I'm with 131 in doing the physically tough hunts before the mountains get taller and steeper.

    Christmas Music

    What is your favorite Christmas music to listen to and fill your heart? "Mary Did You Know" sung by Kathy Mattea is mine.

    The End is Near

    Thanks all for the kind comments. @Dug- yes, I have been remiss at taking photos of Clover. @Lee- I struggled to make Bs and Cs in English and literature, so I'll let the lens or someone else write the poetry.

    The End is Near

    As the year draws towards the end, and the decade for that matter too, it becomes time to select one's favorite images of the past year. In 2019, I got out photographing less due to a lack of several things, but I did get to spend a few weeks in the desert this spring and also time with a new GWP pup. In reviewing images, I noticed that I was drawn more to black and white this year, so hence there is a good percentage of those in the set. Here are five of the eleven images from 2019 that resonated with me the most. The whole set of favorites can be seen on my website. https://www.plateaulightphotography.com/Favorite-landscape-photographs-yearly/2019-Favorite--Landscape-Photographs/ Merry Christmas and blessings to y'all in 2020

    Over/Under Shotgun

    You might try some at a store to see how they line up with the eye when you mount them to the shoulder.
