IMO I think the bucks sometimes rub/ scrape more on low numbers years. The reason being that with less does around they advertise more. Last fall we had come out of two really tough winters in...

Does the Ontario draw system work on a priority system or is it a lotto? I'm from Alberta and most of my moose hunts involved me and one other hunter partnered on one moose tag. Usually me and the...

Just curious about that statement and what you mean by it? Here in the heart of moose country all of the rounds that you listed are commonly used for moose. IMO moose are easyer to kill than elk,...

I'm not saying it isn't difficult, I'm just saying that you are dodging many of the complications of hunting at closer ranges. Which, in some of our opinions... which you requested, makes for poor...

I've never found a need for magnums. I've used the .270, 30-06, and .308 to take deer, moose and elk at ranges up to 300 yards. I preferred the .270 by a small amount. If I were to go up in caliber...

I don't dispute that there are many far better hunters out there than me. RR is probably a better hunter and a far better shot. But I still don't have to agree with how he does things, I still don't...

Turning it down makes your shakes look smaller, so you aren't fighting your own shakes and creating more problems. It also feels more steady which helps you shoot with confidence, IMO that is...

I like a 2-7x scope. I rarely crank it up to 7x, I can shoot out to 300 yards on 4x which is about as far as I care to kill big game animals at. Would like to try a 1-4x. IMO high magnification is...

Rockin' the Hawken, snow track buck.

The Fourth morning of my hunt started out a bit of a gong show. Driving into the spot I had intended to hunt I noticed a nice buck track crossing the road. It was the best track I'd seen so far so I...
