  1. What someone views as a threat can be much different than someone else...that said, I believe this HUGE domestic terrorist threat by WS or any other domestic group is over blown. They want us scared and looking to "them" for protection. It justifies their paychecks. If you added up all the deaths for the one year period covered by the report that were caused by domestic terrorists. and Average of 10 people a day in the US drown in non-boat related incidents. I'd like to see property damage dollars by each extremist group.
  2. I've used both and didn't see any difference at 100 yards.
  3. Love them both but I’ve gotta say Clint
  4. It did "ok" because there was no other option. Red dots and side mounts and other "gadgets" remind me of the saying --- Jack of all trades, master of none.
  5. I've looked at them. I like the Yukon a little better. I like that the bigger Yukons have wheels and the dry baskets are standard. I imagine the all the rotomolded are pretty equal except for price and options.
  6. I had a scope on my top eject 94 and it was just off to the left upper corner of the receiver. It wasn't ideal but a slight tip of the head with your cheek still bedded on the stock and you could use the fixed 4 power scope. I did have to turn the scope however. The windage adjusted elevation and the elevation adjusted windage., or the spent casing would hit the turret and drop back in the action.
  7. They also show it in the chart but they don't disclose which events they are attributing to the White Supremacists Edit: They also don't disclose what groups are categorized in each section or even if the "protest" from 2018-2019 were included
  8. I think a lot about the firearm and shot size selection has to be determined by how the dogs work as well. I loved hunting over my Uncle's dogs when he ran short hounds that worked nice and slow. Often the hares would hop and stop and stand up to listen for the dogs. A rim fire would work great there. He also had a par years before that you were shooting at a white laser line becasue the dogs were pushing so fast...lol.
  9. I think they were pieces of 3/8" thick angle iron I cut on an angle.
  10. I've never had a problem getting on a moving deer with a scope. My father trained me early on on how to do it and it works. Step one and the most important is to have the scope and gun set up and it fits you. This means the eye relief of the scope, pull of the gun and clarity of the crosshair just to name a few. Time after time with your eyes closed...shoulder the gun and then open your eyes. If you don't see a full scope picture with clear crosshairs something isn't right. repeat...repeat...repeat. Once that is good, dry practice on an object. DON'T shoulder the gun and then try to find the object with the scope. if you keep your eyes laser focused on the object and shoulder the gun, brining it INTO your line of sight the crosshairs are going to be on , or very near the object. Sounds easy, and it is once you train your body and eyes. You don't even want to blink during this shouldering process. I promise it will work.
  11. true story. .458 caliber is about $1.25 a bullet on the low end unless you want all lead bullets. It's nuts out there even on reloading components.
  12. I understand that. That's why I clearly said it was from Idaho. It obviously doesn't reflect what southern fur is going to bring either. I was more shocked at the 100% sales.
  13. Just saw these on the Idaho Trappers Association site. Lines won't post well but it quantity offered/Average/high and %sold. I like seeing the %sold being at 100%. Might mean there is speculation that there will be some market, especially on things like coons (even though the price is low) The skunk surprises me and add to that the market for the essence and it might make sense to target them.

  14. may have just wanted some ammo on hand to bolster a sale on a pistol they have. I can't think of a better sales pitch currently than to be able to say, "her, buy this gun and we actually have a box of ammo that will fit it"
  15. I'm betting that is happening with many that don't even own guns.
  16. FYI. a catch pole can be deadly for releasing a cat if you don't know what you are doing. Something about the location of their main blood vessels in the neck on the outside of the muscle. If using a noose it works best to get a leg in the loop with the head. In our class they suggested carrying a 2x4' plywood "shield" in the truck. V notch on the bottom to go over a leg and they said to have a leather strap on the back to be able to control the plywood during release. Kind of like this video
  17. Coon. I just didn't have the time to process that day so I let it go. The only freezer space I had would have been in with the food and that move probably would has hastened my divorce...lol
  18. Full disclosure------ My first release was about a 20# coon. If there had been video it would have gone viral....lol. It was in a dog proof trap. I dropped the loop over its neck after about 20 tries becasue it was sitting there and reaching up and batting the loop away with it's hand. When I tightened up he transformed into a Siberian Tiger right before my eyes. ...I used the pole to take all the slack out of the trap cable and pinned him down on his back. Now remember this is a DP so it is always a front foot catch. That really doesn't put your hands all that far from those nashing teeth. I'm holding the pole in one hand, leaning forward and reach down with my strongest hand to compress the DP spring and let it go. I couldn't do it with just one hand. so I put the pole end in my left armpit and lean forward. so my legs are at a 45 and the pole in my armpit. I look like a big tripod. reach down with both hands and compress that spring. As soon as the pressure on his foot was off he spun to his feet and took off running. What happens to a tripod when you kick out one leg?.....yup. fell on my face and luckily reached out and grabbed the end of my pole that was fast following the still attached coon. I got him calmed down a bit and released the tension on the loop and off he went. I then looked around to see if anyone was around.
  19. Keep your first of each specie and get it garment tanned as a wall hanger.
