    That would make sense why some of mine don’t taste good a lot of times. Because I’m Normally party hunting During rifle season and sometimes I end up shooting a deer on opening day right at first light and lot of times I will wait and field dressing...

    I just had a chance to test it with my scale. The trigger breaks between 40/41oz (I call it 2.5lbs) every time so basically 2 1/2 pounds now that I did the poor man trigger job. It Does have just a little bit of creep/travel before it goes off. If...

    My aging cooler I set up in the house with a bunch of frozen 2 L bottles in the bottom and some of my smoker grates on top of them to basically make a shelf to keep the meat out of the bottom of the cooler. I kept adding ice every day for a week and...

    Well if you look at my post directly above yours I just went through this. I have a lot of people that say they age them for a week to two weeks and I have some that say they don’t. I can tell you firsthand after aging the first year that I’ve call...

    Just take your grips off and remove one side of a hammer spring which takes all of three seconds to do it’ll bring your trigger down to about 2 pounds. I did it to mine and it breaks nice and light. If you don’t like it all you have to do is...

    Yeah, if I’m just skinning, quartering,cutting off back straps, and wrapping them up in plastic pallet wrap to process it another day it takes about 2 hours. I learned the saws all trick from my buddy that came down and shot a few deer on my...

    I have four different centerfire rifles that I can consistently shoot .3” inch groups at 200 yards if I do my part and keep it steady on the bench. My avatar is from my POFP 415 with a 14 1/2 inch barrel at 100 yards off the bench of course. It’s a...

    I just got done cutting up both shoulders on one of my deer and ended up with 2 lbs. 1 oz. of some nice jerky strips. I’ll have to figure out which marinade I’m going to use and pull out my little chief smoker and get ready for business! I normally...

    Now I know why I only thaw one frozen quarter at a time. I bet you took me eight hours plus to cut up and wrap a whole deer. I would say on average the little over two hours time each time I did a shoulder or rear quarter. I’m slow but at least...

    The last gun season is The holiday hunt which is December 24 through January 1. You can shoot as many antler deer as you want as long as you have tags for them and you can buy unlimited tags. I believe Bow hunting goes for another week after. I...

    Yeah I’ll wait till the hype is over and then order a 6 inch one probably. By that time I’m sure they will fix the problems they’re currently having with them. I just watched two YouTube videos that the cylinders are not turning and light primer...

    I took the grips off and performed a poor boy trigger job taking off one side of a hammer spring. I bet you it’s got to be less than 2 pounds... And you didn’t cost me anything other than three seconds of my time. Once I make a dummy round I’ll...

    Well since I listed as WWT (wanted to trade)...I wanted to trade even up for the exact same grips. I really didn’t want to sell them out right. But I found what I believe are the exact same grips as these that will fit my wrangler. So I guess if I...

    The new vaquero grips don’t fit! Not even close. I’ll have to see if I can pawn them off or trade for the same pretty wood that will fit my wrangler. I like it! It does have some dimples underneath the black cericoating but what do you expect...

    That’s why I always tossed my old tasco red dots back in the early nineties when they failed... I don’t believe they ever had in their warranty papers to send them back to Japan for repair.lol
