    Pinpointing downed animal

    Old school way with a map and compass and a pencil. Find three known locations, shoot an azimuth with your compass to them, convert magnetic north to grid north, draw a back azimuth on your map from those 3 locations, where those lines intersect that is your location. Shoot another azimuth to where you think the animal went down, convert magnetic to grid north again, plot the 180 azimuth on your map to your location, then go get it. Or I'm sure one of those newfangled GPS units will do the same thing. Or make a mental note of where it went down, walk over to the spot and if it's not there lay down a marker of some sorts on the ground then walk in a circular pattern til you find it.
  2. I emailed Ruger to ask them their torque specs in inch pounds on their action screws for a wood stocked 77 Mark ll. Their reply was 95 in lbs for the front screw. To me that would just about split the stock if not rip the head off the screw. Winchester and Browning recommend 35 and Remington recommends 30-35.

    What’s on the menu?

    First night is always a rib eye with potatoes. Then maybe spaghetti, or Cornish game hens or a couple of chickens, maybe a pork loin, sometimes beef back ribs, maybe a beef roast stew, couple years ago it was antelope roast stew (didn't last long). The steaks are BBQed, the rest of the meat is done in a Dutch oven.

    22 super jet

    Don't know squat about a .22 super jet, but it looks like they are formed from a .256 winchester case, from what Google tells me.

    In my mind there is hunting, killing and down right murder. Hunting is when you work your butt off for an animal, no matter how big the bones are. Killing is like this guy did, and murder is like resting your rifle on some fence post shooting something in a pen like Uncle Billy's dried up milk cow or a canned hunt if you will.
  13. When was the last time the barrel was cleaned with some sort of copper removing agent?
