    Omg! That will give KFC’s chicken and waffles a run for their money.lol I just got done watching a meat eaters video on how to cut up a heart. I’m going to try and cut it the way they did so it looks like 3 pieces of steak instead of round...

    Well I just pulled both of them out of the freezer. I figured I’ll cut them up in thin slices and probably soak them in salt and vinegar for a day to pull the rest of the blood out and tenderize them. Then I’ll marinate them in milk for a little...

    Lol that’s why it’s still sitting there. I remember years ago hauling 6, 55 gallon drums full of Brock’s gummy worms in my f150 for bear hunting. I can’t believe I didn’t blow a tire or brake a coil spring. It look like my tailgate was almost...

    Cougars are wimps a 223 is like a hammer of Thor with a correct shot placement. I shot one once with a 243 and it was overkill.

    For years all I’ve read is for dangerous game like grizzly bear to use hard cast for reliable penetration. Well I tried hard cast last year on deer as most of you know two out of three deer ran over 100 yards with double lung shots. My hard cast...

    Every year I try and cook up my hearts and they all end up tasting the same and chewy! All I ever end up doing is cutting them up into thin slices and frying them. Thereís got to be a better way. Letís hear some good heart recipes!

    I don’t buy guns online as I’ve been stung too many times. The rock “bottom smoking internet deals” imo are ones that are flawed, seconds, scratched, etc., that would not get purchased in a face to face transaction. The last gun I bought was a...

    I’ve managed a few auto shops in the area so my past employees actually save lead for me and I haven’t even picked it up because I have too much. I got a text two weeks ago with a 55 gallon drum full of WWs. I haven’t gone over and picked it up and...

    Yes I agree that most people that shoot deer in the neck were aiming center mass of the deer and their boolit/bullet veered off and hit the spine or the neck....they weren’t aiming for it. I guess if I shot my 2 1/4 inch group cast load and flinch...

    And my guess is they probably don’t group very well in most guns at that velocity. I don’t think they even list what they’ve sized the bullets at either. Imo it’s just a marketing gimmick for someone that doesn’t cast bullets and reload.

    My buddy came down a few years back to muzzle load hunt. I don’t Remember which muzzleloader hunter he brought but he has two TC‘s. It was either is 45 for 200 Grain Thompson center omega or his 50 Cal encore with 250 grain Hornadys. I’ll have to as...

    I’ve done a lot of googling on the 300 grain shockwave and it sounds like it’s pretty much the norm when using this bullet. I haven’t lost a single deer with them. I was just hoping to put them down a lot quicker. I’ll be excited to try some super...

    To be honest I don’t really remember. If I remember right it tears the deer up pretty good inside. Every deer I’ve shot makes it a good 45 to 60 yards after the shot except for when I back bone them. All the deer that I’ve traveled I’ve been...

    Since season starts tomorrow I’m just going to shoot the shockwaves since the last time I load tested them they shot a .3” group at 100 yards. I will head to the range tomorrow to check to see if my scope is on and hit the woods. I’ll try casting...
