    WTB Kowa 554

    Maybe Doug at CameraLand has an open box or demo. Worth a call.
  2. A recent phototrip with a couple of friends from Colorado had us in remote areas in northern Arizona. The first evening had us overlooking a beautiful section of the Painted Desert with its colored Chinle formation. The next evening was spent in a pinnacle-filled filled valley surrounded by walls of Moenave sandstone. The colors and striations of the sandstone are beautiful. A gallery of the images from the trip may be viewed on my website. https://www.plateaulightphotography.com/New-Work/Navajo-High-Desert/ There were a pair of feral llamas that the Navajos had used to protect their sheep from coyotes. Wonderful colors and markings in the sandstone.
  3. Clover once again procured all the hunting permits this year for quail and grouse, as her gun bearer was unlucky in the draws for elk, deer, sheep, turkey. I hope the monsoon rains are good this summer to enable some decent Mearns hatches and grass growth. It was a dry spring here in NoAZ, so I doubt the Gambels around Sedona will be good.

    Draw results

    Even after the leftover draw, seems there were Kaibab turkey tags to purchase at the regional offices in previous years. I will be up there for grouse though come September.

    Interesting that there are no leftover fall turkey tags on the Kaibab.

    Case stuck in chamber- Help!!

    Glad you got it out easily. Check your headspace so that you are only setting the shoulder back about 0.002" when resizing

    Bulls and Bolts

    With the summer rains and thunderstorms starting, I went up to the Grand Canyon for a couple of days to photograph some lightning and elk. The lightning was often evasive to me, mostly off in the distance or hidden behind the clouds. One six point bull did oblige as it munched on the oak leaves.

    Quail 2022

    I see recent FB posts with plenty of new gambel chicks, but have to wonder if those are around the houses and golf courses. Have your sighting been out in the desert?

    Tick Tock

    I was watching a pot of water yesterday. It took forever to come to boil 😉

    What's your favorite Burger Joint?

    most memorable I've had in Flagstaff has been at Proper Meats where Freddy's Grand Canyon Cafe used to be. Diablo Burger has a good rep, but, although good, I found it did not live up to the hype.

    those did not last long
  15. I recently picked up a pair of new 10x42's so am looking for a bino chest pack. I am considering the Marsupial non-magnetic full closure pack. Are there any better options to consider?

    Bino Chest Pack Recommendations

    What in particular did you like about the Kuiu? What 3 others did you try and why not like?

    26 Nosler

    I would say to put up multiple pics of the rifle with target groups and price, and quit beating around the bush. Great coues and antelope cartridge.

    Fear the Fork ???

    I found a cap better than the ASU slogan. 😁

    6A early archery bull timing

    If the elk have been dropping their calves the past two weeks, that would indicate that the breeding/peak of the rut was around October 1. http://www.cervidsolutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/ELK-Gestation-Table.pdf

    They were there four years ago also. Beats me where they get any water.

    Gas Prices, how high will they go?

    Maybe increase another 35%, $1.50, but some say unlikely. https://money.com/gas-prices-forecast-summer-2022/ https://investorplace.com/2022/05/gas-price-predictions-how-high-will-gas-prices-go-in-2022/ https://markets.businessinsider.com/news/commodities/gas-prices-outlook-6-gallon-fuel-demand-summer-driving-season-2022-5?op=1

    Night Over Sedona

    In this image, the milky way arches over Bell Rock, Courthouse Butte, Lee Mountain, Gibraltar, and Twin Buttes near Sedona. I had been wanting to make this night panorama for a few years, and finally spent a few hours in the dark. This is a blend of about 9 images for the starry sky, and about 9 exposures for the mountains taken about 45 minutes after sunset so some detail could be captured with less noise. The native file is about 27x54" without any enlargement. After a series of images to stitch into a long panorama was shot, the night was ended with this single exposure. The light on Courthouse Butte is due to the lights of the Village of Oak Creek Nikon D810, 24mm, f/2.8, ISO 6400, 20 sec.
