    Wall tent pellet stove conversion

    Yeah... I did research and found some reporting issues with the pellets bridging in the hopper and not feeding and they had to get up and smack it anyways. For my tent we bought an oversized stove, fill it with wood and get a bunch of coals then we add a lump of coal and just restrict is way...

    Wall tent pellet stove conversion

    From my research it depends. Some stoves are pellets only. Some are dual purpose.

    Daughter and Dad Moose Hunt

    Very nice. SAdly my daughter and I are not likely to be hunting much either. Too many other things in life... Hopefully she comes back to it.

    CPW Tag allocation survey/ Landowner tags

    No it is not... The number of tags might be the same but with points you get people who apply because points makes not applying too costly. With the random draw you will see people shift around a lot more and be willing to try different things. But with points people don't stop applying, they...

    CPW Tag allocation survey/ Landowner tags

    Sad to think, many units will eventually be about who was able to live the longest... You can take pretty much any draw and see a pattern. Hell cow elk licenses in December were once left over B list tags that were an after thought. Same tags now are taking 2-3 points for a cow tag.

    CPW Tag allocation survey/ Landowner tags

    Just give it time. Not my fault you lack the ability to think critically about the long term. It is pretty simple, PP create artificial tag demand, they create point creep and at some point that will come back to bite us all in the rear end.

    CPW Tag allocation survey/ Landowner tags

    because there is only one end result to PP. No matter how you cut it at some point you will not draw a tag. Sorry, but give it time. Eventually even your handful of low quality tags will turn into no opportunity at all for you. Sorry but when you look at it will lead to you have no chance. Units...

    How do you carry water into a hunt?

    Use both at different times in different packs. I find bottles everywhere and usually end up with a handful every time I hike out. I sometimes wonder if some are not from planes above etc. There are some places in WY that I hike that are so remote and desolate that you cant find any sign of man...

    Wall tent pellet stove conversion

    I have looked and just not found one that seemed "right" for the cost. The ones that seemed good were pretty pricy. I will be watching this thread but a year ago after all my research, I just couldn't convince myself it was worth the change/cost etc. I was also really concerned about the...

    CPW Tag allocation survey/ Landowner tags

    Colorado has absolutely no chance of changing the landowner welfare and any attempt to do such has been proven in the past to only make it worse, not better. The lowest hanging fruit for Colorado... 1. All NR tags draw only or OTC with Caps. NR Tags become unit or at least region specific in...

    Unit 51-1 Elk Hunt Summary

    Fully agree. Either shut up and not complain or give the details and examples. Especially since there are tons of others who may avoid the same issues with the same outfit.

    Let's See Those Bucks! Nice Daypack Giveaway

    Well my 2021 season was rough. Scouting, hunting, everything about deer was hard this year. Super low numbers and days on days without seeing any bucks at all. Some days no deer at all. This led to me pulling the trigger on the smallest WY mule deer I have ever shot. Still a great buck but...

    butcher for deer near 10..

    You would have to check on the rules for transporting to Utah. Nothing in the Colorado Rules would prevent it, but the Utah side might have special rules about CWD for importation.

    Looking for ideas on one last elk hunt for my dad

    Just change the way you hunt. I have never once done a back pack hunt. I am willing to bet my success rates are about as good as anyone else (especially archery). Depending on you points there are many good general units you can hunt and find elk every day with a mile to 2 miles of a road...

    New Rifle with a Can? What should I get?

    So I am getting ready to build a rifle with a suppressor. The purpose for this rifle is for my daughter (age 16) and my son (age 11). They currently share a 243 and has been a great set up for us, but we want to add some power specifically for elk... I have been wanting a can for a while and...

    Early 2022 Pronghorn inquiry

    I was thinking the same thing. Even though I lived in Craig Colorado for years there is just something different about WY winters. When roads are closed for several days at a time. And when you make a quick trip to Casper and end up stuck on the road for 14+ hours etc. IT is a different world.

    Selling non-resident Wyoming Party Elk Hunt, 14 point share

    Yeah. It really should not matter. Now if they were guiding outfitting illegally it would be different. But the rules allow point sharing free and clear. I really do not have any issue at all. In this case if the OP is buying points, buying a license and never even going to hunt? That means the...

    22 is always on my Radar. It comes and goes a little in total quality but a fun unit to hunt with good potential. 124 had more elk in it this year than I have seen in the last 20 years. Always been elk there but a ton more seemed to be in the area... (I wonder if all the BLM horse gathers in...

    Do we want wolves relisted?

    So here is the truth. The antis no matter what we do will try everything in their power to relist. The bounty has almost no power at all on the issue. I highly doubt the vast majority of those who are antihunting care if there is a bounty or not. They are anti hunting. The overwhelming vast...

    Tikka T3 denting bullets

    Don't need more than one??? I have found lead tips in my rugger, savage, tikka, all get smashed from recoil. This is for hunting and from my experiments at the range shooting lead bullets one at a time vs through my magazine did not affect my groups at all to 300 yards. No measurement in groups...

    Rawlins/Baggs weather report?

    HAHA. I had the tag last year and the type 2 this year. I agree, there are literally hundreds of the 12-13 bucks. The bigger bucks are few and far between. Last year I hunted a ton of day started archery in August and killed my buck October 31st on the last 10 minutes of light. I got so tired of...
