    Box Elder Grouse Creek Mid - Elk

    LAST EDITED ON Jun-15-17 AT 05:00PM (MST)[p]I'm aware there's a lot of private/CWMU's, 2 hunts before mine, and a general spike hunt during the same dates; with 0 points I figured I'd at least give myself a chance of drawing. I'm spent a fair bit of time in that area on the NV side of the...

    Public Land Sell/Transfer, LDS Connection?

    LAST EDITED ON Jun-22-16 AT 08:16PM (MST)[p]Seems that many of the leaders of this transfer/sell movement are also affiliated with the LDS religion. Is this simply because the movement sprouted in Utah/Eastern NV/SE ID, or is there a connection and possible financial backing? I'm of the...

    Online Application - Pref. Points box

    I had a deer license last year, and just want to gain points for deer and elk this year. On the online application page, there's a box that looks like it should not be checked if I want to gain points (although it is worded poorly). Then when I get to the payment page it says something about...

    53 2nd Season

    Drew unit 53 2nd Season deer with 1 point, which was unexpected. I'm guessing the winterkill of 2007/2008 and the economy dropped the odds some. With the early 2nd season dates this year, and barring any major storms, I'm planning on backpacking in and hunting fairly high. Also considering a...

    Minox 15x58 Review

    I recently purchased some from cameraland, on sale for around $550. Cameraland's service was fine. I took the binos out his morning for the first real test; and my old swarovski slc 10x42s made them look poor. Eyecups were somewhat uncomfortable, sharpeness & color were subpar; they are bright...

    Nevada Rocky Pics

    This little guy was pretty curious. Took these photos with my little digital at about 40 yards in the East Humboldts. Before he left, he did one last pose. I don't think he was too worried about me after seeing me crawl up the mountain in the afternoon heat.

    Gun Safe Location (Garage)?

    Is it ok to put your gun safe in the garage? I live in Northern Nevada, so humidity isn't much of a problem. But we do have large temperature swings between day and night. I don't store any ammo in the safe.

    Opening morning, my wife shot him from 400 yards right through the heart. He's 24" wide and his body was huge for a Nevada deer. Had a good layer of fat on him. Me hiking him out, luckily it wasn't too far. Unluckily it was uphill. I'm off to Idaho on Monday. Good luck to everyone else.

    Cattle and Deer Competition

    I've been seeing at least 20 cows for every deer I see scouting this year, granted cows are a lot easier to see. But how much do cattle compete with deer? I've heard two different schools of thought, one being grazing is detrimental and the other is that cattle eat mainly grass which helps...
