  1. I have a newborn at home so I'll have very few outings for deer. Still plan to get a sit in on opening morning at least - might be the only chance I get!
  2. Thanks for sharing this story - a good reminder of the importance of shot placement.
  3. I've seen these on a deer I harvested before. Harmless but creepy!
  4. Thanks for the euro skull last year - looking good on my office wall!
  5. Yep, looks like it went through. It did say I need to do it again in 2027 though, which is wrong.
  6. Interesting. My recertification date fell into the gap where it was between 3 and 5 years since the license was issued (about 3.5 years). So it was not due to recertify until the new laws came into effect at which point it became overdue. I tried a few weeks ago to recertify and the website said I had to wait until at least 1 year before it was due. I tried it again just now and it allowed me to recertify, but I get the same message as above that it's due again in 5 years time, not 3. So they updated the website to allow recertification at the 3 year mark, but didn't update the text to reflect the 3 year requirement and it still refers to 5 years. Confusing!
  7. Even at 45 minutes from my house I was concerned about vandalism/theft at my camp. The first year or so I didn't leave anything of value behind. Now after a few years of no issues, and getting to know the neighbors, I have no concerns. I got lucky and ended up with great neighbors - if I was doing it again I would for sure try to meet the neighbors before purchase.
  8. I got 35 acres a few years ago for a steal and have had great success there. My main considerations were drive time from home (under 1hr), road frontage for access, the nature of the surrounding land being conducive for deer, and of course the price. The adjoining 65 acre parcel came up for sale this year and although I was tempted I couldn't justify spending so much for a hobby when the current parcel is working out just fine.
  9. What do you do with them all? I always wanted to have a go at making a Davey Crockett hat from a raccoon pelt
  10. How does it work if you select the same WMU for both DMPs? Does it count as two drawings with the same odds?
  11. What kind of glass did you put on the 6.5? Can't make it out from the picture.
  12. $10k max per social security number - you can get $10k per family member if you want more!
  13. Why would a wood stove be outlawed? Is it something about this particular design?
  14. I'm starting to plan a guided elk hunt in Wyoming but I have no idea where to begin - how to choose an area to hunt, or how to choose an outfitter. We have two preference points each and we're more interested in meat than trophies. Has anyone here done a Wyoming elk hunt and can they share their experience? I'm also curious what level of proficiency I need with my rifle. All my shots on whitetail here are under 50yds so I never practice at the range at more than 100yds.
  15. I had exactly one shot opportunity this season and it was 15 mins before sunrise, so I'm pretty happy with the new rules!
  16. Awesome! How did you choose your guide/outfitter?
  17. I never buy batteries from Amazon anymore - there is too much fake junk. I get the Duracell copper tops from a brick and mortar store - they have worked well for me lasting over a year in my cheapo Wildgame Innovations cams.
  18. I was ready to try the heart this year but in my excitement I left it in the gut pile
  19. MidwayUSA should have the supplies you need
  20. I started out with Black Hills boat tail hollow points because they grouped great out of my Savage 110 .308 and switched to 150gr Core Lokts this year because I wanted better retention. They had worse grouping (about 1" at 50yds) but performed great on my buck this year with a good exit. The BTHP nuked the heart & lungs but no blood trail to speak of.
  21. I am a big fan of the Nikon Prostaff scopes and have them on all my rifles. Unfortunately they were recently discontinued
  22. Thanks for the link to the actual management plan!
  23. I'm very curious how the adjustment to start/stop times will affect the harvest this year. If it is much higher I wonder if it will prompt an adjustment to the duration of the season(s).
