    Sand fleas out of Seward

    Planning on going fishing out of Seward on Sunday and want to soak a couple bear skulls in a shrimp pot for the day to clean them up. I know shrimping has only been opened in the last year or two out of Resurrection bay and don't know anyone who's tried it. Anyone have a tip or hint on where we...

    Anyone been out to Redshirt

    Looking to go spear some Northerns for my birthday this weekend and wondering if there's snow on the trail in to Redshirt. I'd rather go to Figure Eight but I'm doubting that the trail is in very good shape after the last 10 days of tropical weather we've been having. Any update on either trail...

    Anyone surfcast in Seward?

    I've never been to Seward in all the years I've been here but it looks like I'm headed that way this weekend. I've got a buddy who has a cabin down there and he's been inviting me down for years I just haven't been able to go. He doesn't have a boat anymore, and I don't think my 12.5' Monkey...

    What can a guy do, comfortably, with a smaller boat

    Been going out with friends for a few years now and always have a ball. But also always have scheduling conflicts and just want to be able to get going and go whenever I want to. I've fished out of Whittier and Homer in the past, but I'm not really all that familiar with either area. I don't...

    Haul road conditions and drive time

    Can we start this thread and maybe keep it updated as the season gets into full swing? I am headed up for the first time on Aug 24 and have heard the gamut of stories about road conditions. I've had people in the shop this summer tell me everything from,"road's great, drove 50mph all the way...

    Dinosaur hunt!

    The Mrs. and I were discussing what we should do for the holiday weekend last week and coming up short. The prospect of catching a couple kings wasn't looking too hot and although there were reds to be had, the thought of fishing and camping elbow to elbow with tons of folks didn't exactly fire...

    PWS reports please

    Wife and I are planning on heading out on a couples adventure with some friends this weekend. It's our annual saltwater excursion where we split fuel and groceries with the other couple and head out in their 22' Bayliner. Last year we had a great trip, limits of halibut, rockfish, and a pile of...

    Bear claws

    Last spring I shot my largest blackbear to date, also happened to be my first handgun bear. Nice 6 footer jet black with long hair and no rubs, it was early Father's Day morning and I think my Dad 4000 miles away was more excited than I was when I called him. Anyways, I took the hide to the...

    Contender fans?

    I know the TC Contender was a hot item back when I was a little guy and shooting steel rams was a big thing, but it seems like you don't hear as much about them now. I had always wanted one and honestly didn't know why, as I prefer to do my handgun hunting with a wheelgun, but now through a...

    Headed to the Brooks, need a little advice

    Once again I drew a big goose egg for tags this year so decided to cook up something else. I have a couple of uncles who have been talking about hunting caribou in AK for about 30yrs and I finally told them it was time to make the motion. There will be 4 of us, my dad, myself, and Dad's two...

    Any 270 WBY guys here?

    Well the 257wby seems to be experiencing a resurgence of popularity and a couple years back I had to have one, so I built one on a M70 action I had lying around. It is an amazing piece of machinery for sure, I shoot 100gr bullets at warp speeds exclusively and it is a point and click interface...

    Your favorite Alaska hunting rifle

    I have many rifles strewn about my house and workspace, even a couple in another state. These rifles range in caliber from .17rem through the 458 Winchester with a bunch of stops in between. I have several bases covered in spades, last count numbered 3 rifles in 30/06, one in 300sav and a pair...

    Any Long Lake updates

    Headed out to Long in the morning with a friend and our wives plus his little girl. Just wondering if anybody hit it today and could give a condition report, ice depth, snow cover, yadda yadda. None of us have fished it but it's a pretty drive and hopefully tommorow will be half as beautiful as...

    Anybody Fishing Tolsona or Moose lake this winter

    Thinking of doing a trip out to the copper valley for a little hard water fishing. Don't have a snowmachine but do have a popup and a shiny new 10" auger. I've fished out in the area a few times through the ice but always at a lake that we snowmachined into. Looking to catch something different...

    Tell me about the 7 TCU

    So as luck would have it, as soon as I finished my 222mag project I stumbled onto another 700 short action for a song. It is also a 222mag, what are the odds, but the bore is toast and it is stockless for now. I happened upon a cut rifled 10" twisted .284 barrel blank for the princely sum of a...

    Come by and say Merry Christmas

    We've finally wrapped up this years filming, crammed the TV crew in an airplane and sent them back to where they came from. It's back to normal, as much as possible, and we're having a Christmas party to say thanks to our customers. Thanks for putting up with the chaos around here for the last...

    The Old stuff still works

    As some of you may recall, my lovely bride surprised me with a nice old Savage 99 this fall for our first wedding anniversary. I spent my free weekends, very rare these days, at my loading bench and Rabbit creek getting the old rotary shucker shooting like I wanted. I was having a time of...

    Kodiak reports. Post em here.

    Headed to the rock the first week of December and starting to get fired up. Bucks ought to be chasing the girls around any time now, figure there will be some guys down chasing those bucks this month. Let us know how your trip went, snow conditions, deer numbers, you know the usual. We're headed...

    Any 300 Savage fans in the crowd

    For our anniversary last weekend my lovely bride surprised me with a nearly new shape Savage 99. I had been wanting a 99 for some time but wasn't willing to settle for just any old rifle, how she knew which one to pick I'm not sure but she hit the nail squarely upon the head. I don't care for...

    Need a little help

    I know that there's always a million "where should I go threads" every year but I have a little different situation so I'm coming here for help. My lovely bride enjoys spending every minute she can outdoors with me, she bought herself a shotgun this spring and we've been shooting all summer. She...
