    A January javelina hunt for me. But the daughter pulled a 6A first rifle MB, as a 3rd choice so we can’t complain. Will be great just to be in the elk woods.

    Game Proscessing

    Not sure of brats. But their sausages are AMAZING. green chile breakfast, chorizo, summer. We used to go to GV, but Eagle Rock to me, is so much better. They cut meat for many of the restaurants in town, and once I dropped off meat, and the inspector was there. His words “as an inspector...

    Vallecito Campground GMU 751

    I was there for 2nd season and if I remember correctly everything was locked. ( we have a cabin on the lake ). Saw doe EVERYWHERE, but only 4 bucks in 9 days of hunting. 3 of them were forks, and the other a wide 3x3 that never gave my daughter a shot. The few deer we saw harvested/hanging in...

    Oryx Judging

    A good "rule of thumb" is an oryx's "face" is about 12" long, so a 3:1 ratio of face to horn is where what most consider trophy size ( 36" + ). That is how we have "field judged" on the fly. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Teach your kids to...

    6.5 creedmoor or 7mm08

    A little biased, but I shoot a 6.5CM and LOVE it. My use is more for PRS matches, but the round is supersonic out to ~1315 yds in the Hornady 143gr ELDX. I personally have not hunted with my Savage Stealth as it's a heavy rifle, but i know of elk, deer, antelope, and feral hog all taken with...
