    Best Daypack Opinions

    I have an Outdoorsman Palisade pack that I use for all of my hunting trips, but it’s much more pack than I need for single day scouting trips. I am curious to hear your opinions on the best options for a daypack. A pack like the Kuiu Divide 1500 looks about like what I had in mind. Anyone have any good or bad experiences with this pack to share? I’m open to all suggestions.

    First Backpack Hunt ???

    I know this thread is a year old, but I am curious to know how this trip went and if you would be willing to give a bit of a follow up report. I’ve never taken the plunge on a true backpack hunting trip, but I’m very interested in doing so. I’ve hunted for 25+ years, but never been too far to return to camp.

    Youth hunt velvet

    I’ve been watching two WT bucks in central AZ for this weekend’s juniors hunt and they were both hard horned last time I saw them on September 24th.

    WTT Hornady 6.5PRC 147 grain

    I was able to make a trade with someone that lives close to me. Thank you to those who reached out.

    WTT Hornady 6.5PRC 147 grain

    I appreciate the heads up. My gun doesn’t like the 147’s at all, but I am getting 1/2” groups with the Noslers. I have 4 boxes of the 147’s and 15 rounds of the Noslers. Not urgent, but figured someone might be looking to swap.

    I just posted the same exact thing a few hours ago. 🤣
  7. I have 4 full boxes of 6.5PRC Hornady 147 ELDM that I am looking to trade for 140 grain Nosler Ballistic Tips or Hornady 143 grain ELDX. Not interested in selling at this time. I live in Florence and work in downtown Mesa Monday thru Thursday. I’ll be in west Phoenix around 99th Ave and Encanto Saturday morning for a soccer game. Call, text or PM me here. 48O-5OO-6545

    Optics Rentals - Delete

    I also used Ross Outdoors to rent a spotter last year on my deer hunt and I highly recommend them. It also doubles as an opportunity to do a real field test on something you may consider buying for yourself. I looked at some of the other optics rental options and after factoring in some of the additional costs Ross was actually cheaper.

    Youth 23 hunters

    I love that they do this camp for the youth. We have a deer tag for the juniors hunt in 22, but we’ll be hunting in a part of our unit that doesn’t make sense to stop by the youth camp. Good luck to all the youth hunters.

    I’m interested in the 30-40 Krag ammo. I live in Florence but work in Mesa. Do you ever make it out that way?

    PHX area transmission shop?

    These guys have done a lot of work on my vehicles, including a transmission rebuild. I’ve always been happy with them. Definitely not open today though. http://www.randystransmissions.com/

    Scammer Alert Jayyou

    The only long distance purchases/sells I’ve made are with members of the site that I can see have been members for at least a few years and have actively posted that whole time. I also check the good sellers and good buyers thread. I’ve done this multiple times and I’m yet to have an issue. Knock on wood 🪵

    Fire aftermath

    Do you know if this is still closed? My son has a football game at Thatcher High School today and I’m not finding much about this online.
