    Athlon optics

    I had a buddy try one. It would not hold zero, so he returned it and got an identical one. Same problem. That was enough enough for me to steer clear.

    Glassing Seat/Pad from Phoenix Shooting Bags

    What are these glassing pads stuffed with and how well do the hold up? A couple of my glassing knobs are on some rough jagged rocky stuff that have torn up a couple of other pads. But better pads than my camo and backside. Thanks

    Wife's First Elk Hunt

    Unfortunately no on those vaulted ceilings. 😢. It is a good problem that I hope to have. I hope to do a pedestal if we can turn up something special this year.

    Wife's First Elk Hunt

    I hadn't mentioned it previously, but during our 4 hour wait, we drove back into town to get the kids. We knew they would love to be there and see her bull. We had the idea to put them in camo with us for that year's family picture. I hadn't shared this picture previously because we ended up saving it for our family Christmas card.

    Wife's First Elk Hunt

    Thanks Andrew. Interestingly enough, it was on this hunt that the symptoms of her tumor really began to manifest. At the time we assumed it to be weather related. It wasn't until February that the tumor was diagnosed. Her surgery went almost 9 hours! But they were able to remove about 99% of the tumor. There was one point near the end where things went bad! I thought I was either going to lose my wife, or she would come out of it with severe brain damage. Fortunately, she had a team of pretty amazing surgeons. Two weeks later and she is ahead of pace on her recovery. She should be in great hunting shape by fall.

    WTS Badlands Approach Hat

    Bought both sizes in this hat last week when they were 50% off. This one is a tad small for my fat head. Normally $30, paid $15. Anyone interested for $15 before I send it back? Face to face only. Pick up in Queen Creek.
  7. Looking for a qualified mechanic in the south east valley to install a leveling kit on my 2013 F-150. I will provide the strut extension blocks. I have done one before, but contemplating just paying someone to do it this time. Thanks

    What is this code for? Percent off or just for certain items?

    I was extremely lucky as I only had 9 points.

    Unit 1 early archery

    Early rifle vs archery is a very differnt beast. But with 22, you should have been right on the line. I bet you would draw most any early rifle bull hunt next year.

    Unit 1 early archery

    That surprises me. Something sounds off. If PCPython's dad drew tag #10, he was definitely in the max point pass and he claims to have had 17 points. What choice number was unit 1, was it archery, and was he on the application by himself?

    Unit 1 early archery

    Last year (2018) it looks like it took 16 points for a non-resident to draw in the bonus pass. On a good moisture year, and with so many tags returned this past year, I wouldn't be surprised if it took 17-18 this year.

    UofA seriously?

    Flooring installation question

    You will be glad you ripped it out. It is a lot of messy work and your house will be under an inch of dust, but worth it when it is done. We rented one of these from Home Depot to tear up about 1800 SF of tile and thinset. It took me the better part of the entire 24 hour rental and my arms and back were feeling it for days, but worth it in the end. https://www.homedepot.com/tool-truck-rental/27-LB-Demolition-Hammer/HM1214C/index.html
