    Anybody done any loading for the .375 Ruger. I've read that you can't duplicate Hornady's factory speeds with the powders currently available to the public (at least in the 20" Ruger Alaskan). I...

    Thanks for the input, guys. The Super Maks look like the ticket. A lot of reviewers seem to have issues with the locks, but overall, there are more pros than cons. First sheep hunt this fall, and...

    Thanks for the clarification Chad. Pretty cut and dried. I was just confused by the instructions in that measuring kit showing D3 across the main mass of the prong. I'll send the manufacturer a...

    Interesting horn configuration. As often happens, the strong part (prongs) sometimes robs growth from other areas. It brings up a scoring question that I've had several answers to. When the D3...

    Hey Roger, I decided to use my 3 pts. on 74, and will also be a week late. Hope to run into you and MH7wsm if we all draw. Good luck, both of you.

    Gotta agree with the Dr. Sure they're accurate, and they've bought they're way into the hands of some TV hunters, but they don't stack up in overall quality. Ever heard of anybody building a gun on...

    The grass is always greener Skinz. I hope to live back in WY someday. I'll be scouting 63 for a few days the second week of Oct. Leave me at least one 85 incher to keep me fired up for next year.

    OK Codes, what do I win? :D That buck's a bruiser, and as we all know, field judging goats is rocket science. Having worked behind a gun counter most of my life, I've seen hundreds of 13" and 14"...

    Skinz,
    If it's OK with you, I'd like to check in after the season to see what you thought of 63. I'm looking at for next year. Sent a PM to DrHJH for some input too. Good luck to you and your...

    Cowboy,

    I'm a fishing guide up here, but I'm a hunter first. All things considered, you're best to stick with a guide. The logistics of a DIY moose hunt here are huge, especially if you want a...

    As an Alaskan fishing guide dealing with several hundred clients per season, I get to see more tipping behavior than most. I agree that 10% is a very fair amount, but lest you think the guides are...

    Anybody have a feel for Antelope winterkill in the Southeast? I was hoping to draw this year, but heard the numbers were down in 700 even before this winter. I appreciate any feedback.
