    Ever been totally lost and still denied it?

    Temporarily misplaced, but never lost😂😂😂 We were grouse hunting here in Western Wa in high school. Got dark and kept getting cliffed. We finally realized my dog was the smartest member of our party and followed him right back to the truck.

    BARNES BULLETS VOR-TX LR QUESTION???

    We have taken 3 deer and one cow elk with the 145 grain LRX bullets shot from a 7mm STW. All were 1 shot kills from distances of 90 to 545 yards. Cow elk was 233 yards. Broke the off side shoulder. She ran 15-20 yards and collapsed. All the deer either dropped or spun around and dropped...

    No, but what choice do you have. If you’re like me, 54 years old with points across the West and want to get out of Oregon, there are very few options. Now on to burning my elk points.

    Well, I ended my hunt with a white tail deer. I had a posse with me, many friends and family joined me for the hunt.

    Drew 154c Mount Emily Late Deer Tag

    Will do, and you are right. Not many places to burn points to try and get out of Oregon, so this is it. I’m all in. Trying to get out of Oregon. Still have a bunch of Elk points, but this is my deer cache. Lots of support from family and friends. We will help support the economy in Elgin for a...

    Drew 154c Mount Emily Late Deer Tag

    Thanks Togwotee, I have made three scouting trips and also made a connection. You’re spot on, it’s going to be tough. Still, the dates are awesome and I have all season off. Not a lot of deer. Not a lot of good looking deer habitat on public, but I have found a few spots that look promising.

    LEICA VERSUS SWARO BINOCULARS WITH RANGE/// YOUR EXPERIENCE & KNOWLEDGE???

    I have the 8x42 EL Range binos. I love them, the glass is awesome. Only complaint, the rangefinder can have issues in temps below 15 degrees. You need to keep them warmer than that which can be a pain when cold camping.

    Wall tent heater

    We have small and large from Home Depot. The small works well for maintaining temp and is quiet. The large works amazing when it is below 20. I have a 16 x 20 wall tent and I bring several tanks. Stopped bringing the wood stove years ago. Too much time spent finding wood, dealing with smoke in...

    Tough Elk

    I have never had a bad tasting elk, but I have had a few that were chewy. Chewy can be overcome by several methods. There is Jerky, Pepperoni, burger, and slow cooking. Recently I was told to buy a Cuber and it works also. You can feel how tough meat is when you are cutting it up. If it is...

    Ethical dilemma

    A good friend has killed 80+ elk and countless deer. His wife won’t cook it so they feed it to the dogs. He loves hunting and as you can see and he’s very successful. If anyone helps pack his animals out, they can have what they pack. He gives some to people who ask, but the rest goes to their...

    Oregon Paper Tags

    While printing off my Oregon Tag I thought, this is dumb. What is stopping someone from printing off multiple tags and continue harvesting animals until they get checked...besides the deer herds in Eastern Oregon being in the crapper?

    Tough Elk

    I started using a Cuber on tough steaks. Makes quite a difference. The other options have already been mentioned.

    Drew 154c Mount Emily Late Deer Tag

    I was finally able to use 21 NR deer points in Oregon. Its all I have to do this year, so I will be able to scout quite a bit. I live in Wa about 4 hours from the unit. I was in the unit 20 years ago, so basically I am starting from scratch. I’d really like to hear from people who had the tag...

    Out of box most accurate hunting rifle.

    I agree, I am a Remington guy and don’t own a Tikka, but all my friends who do, love theirs and they all shoot sub MOA in medium calibers.(270-300WM)

    Max points are gone! 128 WY

    Hunted it one time with a friend many years ago. Fun hunt, be prepared for really cold weather. Stay in Dubois in a motel. We didn’t see any giants, but still a great hunt.

    Washington was a couple days early compared to last year. I’m hoping Oregon is the same which would make it mid week.

    Bullet type

    127g LRX for sure. Don’t trust the thin skinned bullets on elk. I too have shot lots of elk and been there when many more were taken. Only bad experiences have come from Berger bombs, ELDX, Sierra Game Kings and Nosler ballistic tips. Stick with monolithic bullets, bonded bullets or partitions...

    Henry Mountain Mule deer rifle tag

    To each their own. I suspect you want to make the best of this amazing tag and I get that. Some would rather do it on their own and live with the results. I’m in the second category. No judgement here...hope you realize your dreams no matter which way you choose. I just hope you share a few pics!

    Wyoming Guides can No Longer Scout for Outfitters???

    Capitalism. It’s a beautiful thing most of the time. Founder puts in the work and sells information. The problem isn’t Founder, it’s the guys wanting to cut corners by buying a location of a big buck or paying for a guide. Everyone wants the success, but they don’t want to put in the research...
