    Safety Conscious Tom

    In a letter to his daughter, Sarah, Ben Franklin panned the bald eagle and praised the turkey. He wrote: “For my own part I wish the bald eagle had not been chosen as the representative of our country.” He said that the eagle was “a bird of bad moral character” that “does not get his living honestly” because it steals food from the fishing hawk and is “too lazy to fish for himself.” In contrast, Franklin called the turkey “a much more respectable bird” and “a true original native of America.” While he considered the eagle “a rank coward,” Franklin believed the turkey to be “a bird of courage” that “would not hesitate to attack a grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his farm yard with a red coat on.”

    It’s complicated

    This section below in red is likely to apply. R12-4-104 I. All members of a group shall apply for the same hunt numbers and in the same order of preference. 1. No more than four persons may apply as a group. 2. The Department shall not issue a hunt permit-tag to any group member unless sufficient hunt permit-tags are available for all group members.

    Careful. His partner without the LT license still is subject to the 10% cap. Now, I'm going to GUESS here: IF the 10% cap has already been filled if & when their permit # comes up, the entire app will be rejected. Why? I don't believe they would issue a permit to one applicant & not the other. Sooo...the best bet is to make a call to AGFD and find out for sure. P.S. : I assume the OP also knows that any BPs he has will be halved with his partner.

    Montana Sheep Tag goes for $440,000

    That it did, but it wouldn't have if the $480K bid made at the in 2013 at the Foundation for North American Wild Sheep (FNAWS) annual auction had been officially paid. The story at the time was that a guy who was sitting with his girlfriend made the bid, and he didn't know the auction was being broadcast live over the Internet. Supposely his wife, who was watching at home, saw him and wasn't real happy. As a result he reneged on his bid, leaving FNAWS in quandary. The Montana game department worked out a deal with the 2nd highest bidder, but they never publicized how much was paid.

    Have no idea what the problem might be. Copy & Paste is exactly what I did, and it went through just fine.

    Really? I guess it must have become invalid after I sent $100 about two hours ago. 🙄
  12. National Rifle Association says it has filed for bankruptcy as part of restructuring (Reuters) - The National Rifle Association on Friday filed petitions with a U.S. bankruptcy court seeking protection from creditors by restructuring, the gun rights advocacy group announced. The NRA filed the Chapter 11 petitions in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Dallas, it said in a news release. The NRA said it would restructure as a Texas nonprofit to exit what it said was a “a corrupt political and regulatory environment in New York” state, where it is currently registered. The influential group said in a statement there would be no immediate changes to its operations or workforce, and that it “will continue with the forward advancement of the enterprise – confronting anti-Second Amendment activities, promoting firearm safety and training, and advancing public programs across the United States.” The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right to keep and bear arms. Last August, New York state Attorney General Letitia James sued to dissolve the NRA, alleging senior leaders of the nonprofit group diverted millions of dollars for personal use and to buy the silence and loyalty of former employees. The lawsuit filed by James in a state court in Manhattan alleges NRA leaders paid for family trips to the Bahamas, private jets and expensive meals that contributed to a $64 million reduction in the NRA’s balance sheet in three years, turning a surplus into a deficit. The NRA responded by suing James, a Democrat, in federal court, saying she had violated the NRA’s right to free speech and seeking to block her investigation. The litigation remains pending. The NRA in recent decades has been one of the leading voices opposing proposed or existing gun control measures. The NRA’s actions will likely put the attorney general’s lawsuit on hold, and a reincorporation could strip her of the ability to seek the group’s dissolution. In her lawsuit, James had said the NRA’s incorporation as a nonprofit in New York gave her authority to dissolve it.

    Hosting CWT doesn't come without expenses. I'm pretty sure Amanda will never ask those who sell items here to donate a portion of the sale price to CWT, but...it's something to consider doing voluntarily for the privilege. If we sell items on eBay or other such sites, we would pay anywhere from 5 to 10% per sale. The amount you donate is up to you, of course. So if you have a mind to, use amanda@coueswhitetail.com to send money via PapPal. You can use a credit or debit card or your checking account, and if do not have a PP account, let Amanda know via the same email above. She can then send a Money Request for the amount you wish to donate to your email, which will have a link to PP.

    Looking for 300 win mag

    Not sure it would be considered "long range," but I have one I'll be listing for sale here in the near future that fits right into his price range. It was custom built for me by Robar Inc. with a Rem. M700 action, fluted barrel and McMillan stock. It's the same configuation they used on the sniper rifle platforms for law enforcement agencies. All the metal has a no-rust NP3 coating. Scope is Leupold varible w/50mm objective but I can't recall the exact model or powers without digging it out of the closet. I'm thinking it's a 2 to 9 or 3 to 10 Vari X III, however. Rings & bases are also Leupold. Right now, this is the only photo of it I have.
