    Polaris Sportsman 570 X2 seat fix

    I recently picked up a 2015 Sportsman 570 X2. Over all its a great machine but I was having an issue with excessive heat from the exhaust. It would go so hot under the seat that the plastic would get soft causing the seat pegs to get soft and the seat would slide out. Worrying about the seat...

    170gr Partition in 30-30

    I just picked up a couple hundred 170gr partitions from sps. I think this should be a perfect bullet for Blackbear, caribou, and moose in the 30-30. I picked up an older marlin 336 last summer from a buddy of mine and put a lyman peep on it. I figured my 11 year old could use it for...

    Best 44 mag factory loading for blackbears out of a carbine?

    I recently picked up a Ruger 96/44 in 44 rem mag. Its a really handy little rifle and I think it would work well for my 10yr old for hunting baited blackbear. My son is left eye dominant so levers work better for him than my bolt guns and this thing handles like a 10/22 so its about...

    2013 big boss tire size

    I’m thinking about getting some new tires for my 2013 big boss 6x6. I’d like to step up to a bigger tire but don’t know how big I can go without spacers. I was thinking about either carlisle ACT 26x9x12 fronts 26x11x12 rears or possibly ITP Mudlite XL in either 26 or 27” tires. I don’t...

    Nikon BDC reticle and "spot on" program

    I have owned a few Nikon Prostaff scopes with the BDC reticle. In thier price range the nikon is really hard to beat and while I generally run leupold scopes on all my rifles I have found when looking for a cheaper scope there isn't anything that compares to nikon glass in the sub 200 dollar...

    Big game rifle for 10yr old idea

    I have a young son who is still pretty small statured and sadly left eye dominant. I have started him shooting left handed but this leaves a lot to be desired for gun options out there. I've decided that the best option from my current rifle battery is my T/C Encore. I found a good deal...

    new carry gun 329 NG

    I just picked up a 329 NG 44 mag for my dual purpose concealed carry and field carry revolver. Up until now I have been carrying a glock 20 for my field carry gun but have been wanting something lighter for quite some time. I ran across this 329 NG and was really impressed with how it felt. It...

    S&W key lock replacement plug

    I found a source for S&W key lock replacement plugs. Basically replace the key lock with a plug to match your pistol finish and removing the internal locks. I need a minimum order of 10 to get started as a dealer. I have three accounted for, if any of you are interested in having the key...

    Fun way to salvage a broken longbow

    I made an atlatl today out of a broken longbow I have had kicking around in the shed for a few years now. It was pretty easy to cobble this together with a bit of hardwood scrap, a metal punch and some paracord. The dart I made from two carbon arrow shafts with a piece of all thread ad two...

    New bunny blaster

    I have always used my ruger 10/22 for bunnies but after hunging in some very thick cover I was considering getting a 22 pistol. I figured a pistol with compact red dot would be about perfect for maneuvering in the tight brushy areas I normally find rabbits. I just put together a new bunny...

    Wasted Moose

    I got out moose hunting today for the first and probably last time of the year. Weather was outstanding, but the hunting pressure was more intense than I have ever seen before. It seemed everywhere I looked there was other hunters and 4 wheelers running around. This is really no surprise as...

    8x57 recomendations for moose

    My sister in law decided she wanted to take up hunting and was given a 8x57 sporterized mauser. The factory loads available are pretty anemic. I can't imagine that they would perform all that well on game bigger than caribou. I got a set of dies to load her up some more potent ammo. So far...

    460 Smith shooters beware Buffalo Bore Ammo

    This is a warning to any 460 Smith shooters reguarding Buffalo Bore ammunintion. Yesterday I purchased a box of 360gr Cast BB ammo at the sportsmans warehouse in Anchorage, AK. When fired from a Smith Xframe 460 first shot locked up the cylinder. We had to use a rawhide mallet to knock the...

    Shot my first moose with a muzzle loader, liked it!

    I filled my cow tag this morning with my encore 209x50 with williams peep sight and 250gr barnes MZ sabot. I have shot a couple of whitetails with the encore back in michigan and decided since I had drawn an "easy" cow tag in DM410 that I would use it to fill my tag. I have shot a few...

    Barnes 250gr MZ bullet on Moose??

    I drew a cow tag this year and was thinking about trying to fill it with my muzzle loader. I have a T/C hawken flintlock and a 209x50 Encore. I have used the encore for whitetails and have found it to be very accurate with the 250gr barnes bullet and 2 777 magnum pellets. The barnes bullet...

    First bear!!

    I got my first bear out of whittier on tuesday. A couple of buddies and me went out of whittier to do some fishing/camping/bear hunting. Spent the first night fishing, two tiny halibutt and a few cod. Fishing wasn't great but was a great evening on the water. Spotted a bear as we motored...

    Some bears are still out!

    I was out rabbit and predator hunting today. Me and a buddy rode our 4 wheelers back about 15 miles on a popular Matsu valley trail. One the way riding out I ran across a pretty fair sized grizz. It was standing on a small bluff about 120 yards away when I pulled up. The only problem was that...

    4 wheeler frustrations

    After much begging/pleading/swearing and batering I finally got a day to go out and do something besides watch kids! A couple of buddies and I were going to go out and ride/rabbit hunt jim creek area. Dug the wheelr out and loaded it up the night before, running just fine. Get to jim creek...

    What optics for new AR

    I just picked up a new AR15, flattop with flip up gas block front sight. Only problem is I am not sure how I should scope it. Right now it has a 3-9x50 Nikon BDC on it. Its a little big, I was thinking some thing a little more compact low power variable, but I don't want to sacrifice light...
