    Game wardens don't need a warrant to do a freezer inspection in some states. this is both political, and legal... so I am posting on the same topic in both places. Be aware that you have no rights of privacy in the world of Conservation...

    The definition of possession varies from state to state and even within the state depending on species. I will use North Dakota as an example since they recently changed the law to not include game at home in the freezer except for waterfowl. ...

    As I CLEARLY stated when they suspect abuse. Check out any of the news reports when people are caught with large amounts over the daily limit. When that happens they tend to do a home freezer inspection.

    I haven't had any problems with it either. A friend gifted me a 5 gallon bucket of once fired, but super dirty 45ACP (muddy and some tarnished). I sprayed all the mud off using a sifting screen, then Citric Acid (Lemishine) and dawn cleaned them...

    North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Minnesota all use DNA testing and freezer checks when abuse is suspected. Frankly I would be surprised if all states don't. While is it true that Game wardens currently have more power than most LE...

    Old blades were great, however, the new ones not so much. This applies for both the carbide tip blades and the bi-metal blades. By old I am referring to mid 80's or older. A simple spark test would be the first step.

    Not true. Game wardens routinely check freezers when they believe there is abuse. They also use DNA to determine the number of animals in possession. The key is abuse. When they suspect abuse they tend to get very interested in what's in your...

    You know I made another post recently about finding completely round lead PCd rings shaved off inside a few of my spent casings. Maybe this would explain why I would get a random ring in a case as some of my boolits grew larger than others and would...

    You know you’re right they were in my fired cases and not my my action 99.9% of the time! I would find them in my zip lock bags I put the spent casings in and still stuck inside the spent casings. I was thinking that I shaved The base of the...

    Id find just a couple, like two or three rings after about 60 firings. It wasn’t consistent. I wonder if I had some growth or bounce back on a few of my boolits causing this? The boolits I casted were a month or two old and around 16 BH.

    When you had flyers I was wondering if you’re using gas checks. When I first started reloading with my 44 mag and 450BM I’d get random flyers and after looking at my pile of bullets I made I had some gas checks that went on crooked. This is a good...

    Here you can not have any game left over from the year before unless it is PROCESSED. Which means it has to be turned into something else. Hamberger, sausage....... If it is still in the legal taken way, you can be charged if the fish has to be left...

    They are correct. Possession limit is total amount you can have period. That includes at home in the freezer even if it's from last year or 10 years ago.

    Well this taught me to resize my old cast boolits I stocked up on 2 years ago right before I go to load them. I was having fun when I first got in the reloading and I casted up a couple hundred pounds plus GC, & PC them. Not that big of an issue...

    I’m OK with cooked onions or onions that I pickled... But raw onions will give me a stomachache and go through me just like garlic.

    I have. Not found that to be the case. Best accuracy with cast bullets in rifles has been with the drive band seated firmly into the lands..... just as in the OP's picture.

    I read somewhere that you get the best accuracy when the boolit is .009 - .011 off the lans, haven't tried it yet
