    I guess there are a few options for insulation, but some are pretty expensive. A down under quilt is one of the expensive ones, but you can use your regular sleeping pad, if it isn't too cold. ...

    Hammocks?

    Has anyone used a hammock, such as Warbird hammocks with a tarp cover, for elk hunting, etc.? Some of my hunting ground is everything but flat, even enough for a tent, and I like to sleep where...

    I got drawn for a multi-season elk tag and need to pull my Thompson Center Hawken out and get it shooting again. I bought a new pound of Triple Seven and discovered, when I got home, that it is fffg...

    Hope I have better luck than you did, shoot! I just ordered a Hicks Accurizer from Midway. I keep throwing money at this gun, because like you, I really like it! I'm going to look at the bedding,...

    6mm, Thanks for the phone #. I intend to call and get some advice from your smith. Sure is an aggravating situation, to have a gun look so good, but shoot so bad! It is a re-bored 35 Whelen. ...

    Well, I couldn't agree more! Wish Savage offered a 24-26" barrel in a hunting weight rifle. Why they went with the 22" barrel, I'll never know! I may have to go up to 8.6lbs, if I buy the Savage...

    You know, I've been looking at the 111lrh, but I really don't like the muzzle brake and it's not needed. Anybody know if the barrel length is 26", plus the 2" muzzle brake or is it 24", plus muzzle...

    22" barrel length in 6.5 x 284 too short?

    I'm looking to get a new Savage in 6.5 x 284, but the barrel length is only 22". Has anybody had any experience with this caliber and barrel length? I'm a little worried that the reduced velocity...

    It's now legal to carry in Washington, if you have a concealed carry permit, but I always had one in camp. Never carried it in the woods, but really brought it to put down one of my horses, if...

    Well, the last I checked, you just buy a NR tag across the counter. There may be some restrictions in a few units, but none I know of. Alaska has 26 units and those units near roads/population...

    Thanks guys! One more thing I should have added to my first post; do you think the 22" barrel will cost the 6.5 x 284 too much velocity? I'd sure feel better if it came in a 24" barrel, without...

    Very nice! Yes, every year the season stops a day earlier! Hope the cycle will start over, soon. My problem is getting drawn! My last bull tag was in 2006 and I'm running out of years to hunt. ...

    Hello everyone,
    I'm new here and I'm starting to get interested in rifle hunting, again. I switched to archery soon after I returned from Viet Nam, but I have rekindled my interest in firearms. ...
