    River Buck

    They pulled theses out of the river while cleaning debris from the water intake screens for a power plant. 191 7/8. Now the question is where did it come from? Is it a local buck or did it get trapped in debris between coal barges? If it came in with the barges it could have come from anywhere...

    Covid and Taxidermy

    I left the deer I killed in Colorado last year at a Colorado taxidermist. They said it would take about a year. So, the year was up and thought I would give them a call to check the status. They said the tannery they used shut down for two months and were slow returning capes even after that...

    Antibody Tests

    Does anybody want one? I saw this morning that if you donate blood to the American Red Cross they are performing antibody tests on it and providing you with the results. There is very little chance that I have had the coronavirus and didn't know it. But I would like to get an antibody test. If...

    Colorado Application

    Just a little tip for the application. You have to put the small game (qualifying license) in your cart before you can proceed with your application. I thought it would just add it in automatically but it didn't, kept giving me a response that the big game licenses weren't available.

    Ate my 16d tag

    I drew a 16d second rifle tag this year. I got some recommendations from Monster Muley guys picked one that I still believe is a good outfitter/guide. I hunted the Northern half of the unit and it had pretty much everywhere I went it had burned. Grass had came back up everywhere and it only...

    Photobucket photo hosting

    A while back MM members were having problems seeing photos posted on MM that were hosted on Photobucket. I was having this problem also. I did download a free "Fix" and I can see them now. Is this still a problem? Should I be using something else to host photos? And what would that be?

    Flags in your neighborhood

    When I was driving out the road the other day I thought I would take notice of the flags that were up. In about a five mile stretch of rural country highway at small businesses and residences there were 23 US flags, 2 Confederate flags, one State flag and 1 no. 14 Nascar flag. There was also...

    Hatteras Fishing

    We caught these off the Outer Banks of North Carolina. They call these dolphin, mahi-mahi or dorado depending on where you are. I'm not a salt water fisherman but the family wanted me to go. I was a little sea sick most of the day.

    Down or Synthetic

    Going on a 10 day Alaska Dall sheep hunt next year. I know the down sleeping bags provide more warmth for the weight but if they get wet they lose their insulating properties and are difficult to get dry. I have heard horror stories about down bags getting wet and not drying out the entire...

This isn't a huge buck by Greys River standards but this was my first mule deer hunt and I am happy with him. I was there going into the second week of the season and there...

    Saskatchewan Whitrtails

    A few pictures from Saskatchewan hunt last year. I hunted there in 2006 and again in 2008. The antler size was a lot bigger in 2006 than 2008. The winters of 06-07 and 07-08 were the hardest they had in a few years. Either the mature bucks hadn't survived the winters because they lost their fat...

    Tikka Light

    I have a new Tikka Light with synthetic stock. The barrel was touching the stock on both sides for most of the length. I have taken care of that but it appears to have a designed pressure point about 3 1/2 inches up from the receiver. My question is should I leave that pressure point in place or...

    Under Armour

    Anybody use the heavy weight Under Armour? This stuff seems to be getting more popular but expensive. Never paid a $100 bucks for a set of long johns before. Mainly asking about how warm is it. I know that one guy that posts on here is a representative for them.
