    Go buy some groceries and commodities

    Christmas present for the wife several years ago. Will hold 14 quart sized jars, but it cost a few pennies.

    Go buy some groceries and commodities

    We should start a thread about the best conspiracy theories you are hearing. My mom sent me a great one the other day (she is a nutty as the come). Via Facebook Messneger video: Currently the government is flying planes at high altitude with special radar/x-ray type equipment that will not only allow them to see into each individuals house, but will identify and document any firearms by type. In the very near future the military will be going door to door with their list to search/confiscate all of the the firearms, and make arrests for a failure to surrender everything on the list. To beat the radar your firearms need to be buried at least 6 feet deep.

    Nothing to do with the craziness going on, but I found boneless skinless chicken breasts today at $42 for a 40 pound box. Picked up 80 pounds and am helping to wife can/bottle chicken today. https://www.usfoods.com/why-us-foods/chef-store/tempe.html

    Is it too much

    No such thing as too much rifle (unless you are getting into military grade stuff). Shot javelina, coyotes, coues, etc. with a 300RUM. No more meat loss than with my smaller rifles like .223, .243, etc. If you plan on having one rifle to hunt everything with, go big. IMO, you can't go too big, but you can definitely go too small. With a higher power rifle that can reach out to long ranges, you definitely want a higher magnification scope, such as the one you mentioned. The biggest negative (other than recoil, but you can do things to manage that) to the big magnum calibers like 300 RUM is shorter barrel life. But for the average recreational shooter/hunter, the barrel with likely outlast you.

    Don't think online firearm and ammo sales are safe!

    The conspiracy theory videos are out of control!

    Portable shooting bench—75$

    I've always been curious how solid/stable these are. Much wobble/movement in them?
  8. Yes, you read it correctly, I am actually looking to sell bullets, and insanely enough, for what I paid for them! (Clearly I DON'T know what I have. 🤣) These are not loaded factory ammo, just the bullets for reloaders. I have been looking for them for several months and finally found some. I had to buy 4 boxes to get free shipping, but only need 1. Another is already spoken for, so I have 2 left up for grabs. My cost was $41.99. With tax, they were a hair over $45.00. So that is what I need per box. Pick up is in Queen Creek. I really don't want to go to the hassle of shipping, but will on your dime. Thanks

    Optics Planet taking 9mm BO 46 cents

    Optics Planet is terrible about backorder stuff. I had some bullets on back order for four months until I recently canceled. I know a guy with bullets on back order for almost a year from them.

    Bruno’s has retumbo, varget, H4350.

    Don't suppose anyone from the east valley is headed up that way? I could use a couple pounds of H4350 is anyone is going.

    Where's Casey??? 70 - 7

    The two schools that played in the 3A championship last year (ALA Queen Creek and Ben Franklin) were bumped up to 4A, in no small part due to the whining and complaining of the small town schools. If you can't beat them, get them out of your division.😉

    Where's Casey??? 70 - 7

    Well, it should be noted "those valley academy schools" got bumped up to 4A this past season. So yeah, asterisk...
  15. The title might be a bit of an over exaggeration, but it seems like every couple of yours I discover a new piece of gear that I can't imagine how I managed to get by without. Example: I process most of my own meat. In doing so I have a bad habit of trying to go a little to fast. This pertains to in the field, as well as in my kitchen. With how sharp disposable blades are these days (another how, it did I get by without it piece of gear) it only takes a small slip to do some pretty good damage. I'll usually end up with at least one really good cut per hunt. My wife bought me a pair of these food handling "cut resistant" gloves (see link below). They aren't much bigger or heavier than a pair of latex gloves, but they have saved me from lots of cuts, nicks, and who knows how many stitches. https://www.amazon.com/NoCry-Cut-Resistant-Gloves-Performance/dp/B00MXUHHGK/ref=sr_1_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1470617214&sr=1-1 What are some of these for you? Doesn't have to be a life changer, just something some of us might benefit from that we hadn't thought of before.

    ISO Waterfowl Shells - 3.5" BB

    I dropped the ball and didn't expect it to be as difficult as it is to find waterfowl shells for a crane hunt starting 11/29. I have some fallback stuff to use, but would really prefer to shoot Winchester Super X, 3.5", BB, 1 3/8 ounce or the Federal version of the same. Anyone have a few boxes sitting around that they would be willing to part with, or have a line where I can get some in the east valley? I have a few boxes being shipped, but it might not arrive in time. Willing to pay cash or trade (H1000 or Retumbo are trade options).

    "How did I live without it?" Hunting Gear

    I've become a huge fan of the Kifaru Gun Bearer over the past several years. https://kifaru.net/store/accessories/gun-bearers/

    Thought about HECS clothing

    It is total BS and one of the biggest loads of malarkey to hit the hunting industry in the past 100 years.

    33 Youth Javelina

    Most of them that I have seen in 33 recently have all been low and in the ridge bottoms of the rolling hills. With the warmer than usual weather, I would look for them to be moving a little earlier in the AM than usual and bedding a little earlier as well. In 33 this time of year, we have historically seen them start moving between 8:00-8:30. They tend to not like the early morning cold, so get up a later than deer, once the sun is well up and over the hills so they can get warm (no undercoat). But I wouldn't be surprised to see them up and moving as much as an hour earlier. My kids all have 37B tags, so we will hopefully be chasing them early tomorrow as well. We plan to get to our spot at first light, but probably won't see anything till 7:30 or later.

    Thanks, we have some help that knows the area really well, but if we struggle, you may hear from me!

    Paper Apps for leftovers

    Mine showed up on my portal last night around 6:00 PM. Wasn't there an hour earlier around 5:00.

    Don't post them. He ^^^ will look at for every opportunity to troll you for years after and call you out for stuff he has no clue about. It is what he does.
