  1. The wife and I had the same trailer and loved it. I towed it with a jeep liberty and it did fine even on the big hills. Our families outgrew these or we would have kept them. I sold mine last yer for 12k and it had seen a lot more use. This one probably has been slept in fewer than 30 nights. Posting for my sister. These are photos off the internet, but she can text actual pics if you are interested. Pm me for contact info.

    Good luck! I would want to be out there a little earlier, but that's just me. 2am will be here before you know it.

    Wife's first turkey

    It was an awesome morning. We had lots of birds talking even after they hit the ground.

    Wife's first turkey

    We didn't have a lot of hope this year due to my wife tearing her mcl and ACL 2 weeks before the hunt. After a miss on the first stand, we regrouped and moved about 500yds up the mountain. The box call brought this guy in strutting. He paused at 65yds and she let him have it. We were done before 630am.

    Backing out of driveway

    one morning while leaving for work about 4am, I picked up my tipped over trash can and found one trapped inside. I not sure who was more startled. I didn't need coffee that morning, I was wide awake.

    Luna or Greer Lakes?

    Luna use to have nice holdovers. I use to go the first week of May and troll flatfish or flies. Its been about 5 years since I have gone, but I bet its still pretty good. Nelson might be another good one to try.

    How much you gotta spend?

    Watch the bargain cave and eBay. I've owned several and foxpro seems to be the best.

    New 1/2 Ton - What would you pick?

    I had 2006 with the 5.3. We towed a 24ft camp trailer about 8-10 times a year with no complaints at all. We traded it in at 196k miles and never did anything other than maintenance.

    well place shot

    Lots of good advice on this thread. I have seen a lot of elk shot the last several years, and they all react different. Personally I wouldn't shoot for the shoulder with a 30-06. I have seen bullets stop on the shoulder joint twice, and not penetrate the chest. One was a 30-06 with 150gr soft point, and one was a 150gr barns from a .270. Both shots were inside 75yds. Luckily fast follow up shots killed both bulls and we were able to see what happened. I know both of those could have broke through the shoulder blade, but they hit the joint and stopped. I think with your setup behind the shoulder is a safer bet.

    recoil fear

    I have helped a few people with the same issues. I like to start them off just shooting primers and then move up to shooting 25gr of powder with an empty sabot. Eventually I will have them shoot 50gr and a real bullet. I dial in the gun for the hunt and never have them shoot a full charge until the hunt.
