    It's going to be cold in February, but I am looking forward to it.
    Besure to de-grease the bolt

    I would hate to go all that way and then have a weapon malfunction. What I hear is that the air temp is not that cold out there -10 to -20, but the wind chill is off the chart sometimes.

    With that in mind what type of lube do you guys use on bolt action guns at those temps. My experience at -20 to -30 has been that it does not matter that much. But if it is really cold, anyone have issues with bolt guns functioning?

    Am I reading the regs correctly that there is no Nelson Island draw for next year?

    It's not a "draw". It is a registration permit that you can get online.
