    no doubt some need them and a good many could get by just fine without them. I lived on them for 5 years. I pretty much wasted 5 years of my life. I had pain. theres no doubt about it. But those pills took as much quality of life away from me as the...

    you got oxidized lead, tin and antimony. Same thing that's. one or more of them may oxidize a bit more but if you tested it it would contain all of them

    I quit doing it. WHY? because it seems like I gave most of it away. Everyone wanted ready to eat venison but most of them don't want to be bothered cooking it themselves. Anymore everything that isn't roast or steaks is ground into burger. I grind...

    I cant argue with a thing you said. Seems everyone that shoots an 8 pointer up here claims its 200 plus lbs. Most of them are very lucky to go 160 dressed a HUGE buck maybe 200 dressed and like you I live up north where there suppose to grow big. Im...

    I was a lineman up north most of my life and my office was zero many days. What we found that worked best was a pair of the old (we call them golashes) zip up rubber boots but lacross (at least they used to ) makes them with a fur lining. Biggest...

    For people with the S press, you can use the reloading adapter and BT's base punches no problems (but you do need press in reloading mode and adjust dies as needed.)

    yup if you cant kill deer at 300 yards with 9x its time to go to the eye doctor or take that blister pack tasco off and buy a good scope. One of the longest shots ive made on a deer was 524 with a yards according to my range finder. Gun was my 7stw....

    any gun that will shoot 10 shots into even 3/4s of an inch one day and go back the next and shoot 10 into the same group and not enlarge it is one exceptional rifle and they guy on the trigger is pretty talented to boot.

    that's what ive done to problem #1's. It helps but it sure doesn't turn a 2 inch gun into a sub moa gun and it does help a bit with group size especially verticle stringing is opening up your groups. .

    might be possible if your talking live weight but everyone I know states the weight of there deer as field dressed. Must be a REAL bugger to get a 325lb deer out of the woods without gutting it. I don't know anyone that doesn't field dress a deer in...
