    Looking for a Sig cross

    My son has his first elk tag this year and I need to get him a rifle. He shot a sig last week and liked it. I would prefer a .308 and camo but would consider other options. If anyone has one they want to sell let me know.

    Looking for .410 3” #2-#6 shot for a youth hunter

    Lead or steel? .410 is hard to find in anything but 7.5 and 8. I ended up buying my son a 20ga because I couldn't find good options for .410 ammo. I will look tonight but I might have some 3in lead 4's that I found in a pawn shop. I am in Williams though.

    Coy Dog?

    My opinion is that is just a city coyote with mange.

    What's for dinner tonight?

    I took my boy down to the desert to help a couple of buddies on a javalina hunt. On the 5hr drive down all he could talk about was wanting to kill and eat a rabbit. As luck would have it mid morning Friday this guy changed shade trees on the ridge right by camp. A few shots later this sucker was on the camp stove getting cooked for lunch. Not my favorite but that lil guy was so proud it was amazing.

    Mountain House Buckets

    My neighbors bought a freeze dryer and after seeing what it takes to do right, I will never complain about the cost of mountain house.

    Antelope 15 points

    The five recognized subspecies are American pronghorn (A.a.americana, Ord 1815), Oregon pronghorn (A.a.oregona, Bailey, 1932), Mexican pronghorn (A.a.mexicana, Merriam 1901), Sonoran pronghorn (A.a.sonoriensis, Goldman 1945), and peninsular pronghorn (A.a.peninsularis, Nelson 1912) Maybe Mexican?

    I think you mean Sonoran? I don't think they are. I believe those are all west of I10 but I might be wrong. I do know that access can be tough on that hunt.

    Can you enter draw at 9?

    Not even close! I posted a picture of a vacuum canister on a FB jeep page asking what it did. I had a ton of messages letting me know how stupid I was for asking a question. 99% of the guys that answered were 100% wrong. Lesson learned

    In Search of .270 WSM Brass

    They were red bags. I'll see if I can find the lot numbers in my email.

    In Search of .270 WSM Brass

    It was new but I bought it off a forum member. No idea how old it was but the bags were sealed. Winchester knew about the problem but never recalled it.

    WTB: 410 Waterfowl Ammo

    Good luck finding some. I just went through this with my 9yo son. I ended up just buying him a 20ga semi auto. We haven't got to shoot at any ducks yet but there is a huge difference when shooting other small game. I can also get target loads for $9 a box instead of $30 a box for .410. He likes the 20ga over the .410 and handles the recoil just fine. Wish I could help with what you need I just never found anything other than TSS turkey loads and they were $10 per round. Maybe call around to some pawn shops and see if they have any older stuff on the shelf? The best deal I found was at the feed store in Williams but it was all lead shot.

    In Search of .270 WSM Brass

    Just a heads up. I bought 100pcs of new Winchester Brass for my 270 wsm. After prepping and loading I found half of the cases would not chamber in my rifle. After a lot of back and forth with winchester I got it replaced only to find the same issue with the new brass.

    2024 elk regs?

    They are up on the website
  19. I think 6 a is a good choice. I don't hunt coues there but I spend a lot of time glassing it and see some good bucks. I have a buddy that has killed 3 bucks over 100" in the past 7-8 years.

    My Epic Sheep Hunt

    That's a beautiful ram! They are so hard for me to score. I would have thought he was bigger. What gun were you shooting?

    Sheep Hunts 2023; Good Luck!

    But he included a video so that counts for a lot of typing.

    Great hunt!

    Lots of scouting, long drives, and it all came together opening morning. We found several groups of sheep and 7 rams. My buddy got it done with 1 shot at 392yds. When I glassed him up I knew we was a shooter. He is a 9yo ram.
