    Bowhunter takes state #2 buck while going #2

    My buddy took a dump in the woods one time, and walked away from it. His stand wasn't too far so he sat back down. An hour later he catches movement in the crapper area and there was a doe licking her chops and had toilet paper on her lips. I know dogs will eat it too!!!!

    Bowhunter takes state #2 buck while going #2

    As the story was told, the buck may not have stopped if he hadn't seen something out of the ordinary. Rather be lucky than good sometimes

    Susitna River bridge via Denali Highway

    I'm sure you guys can ride off trail just fine. I thought I could too. I was on a spring bear hunt a few years ago with brwnbr, and we stayed at the Alpine Creek Lodge. I was ok on the road going in, although I was whipped when we got there. We did haul gas and other things in, so it was...

    I have a friend who just bought a new house in Anchorage and me and another buddy want to get him a nice house warming gift. Of course he is taking us both on another caribou hunt this August on the haul road, so it is also a little payback. I have been looking at the Ary Vacmaster chamber...

    Cruising Alaska

    I have thought about a cruise to Alaska but I always jokingly said they won't let me hunt from the deck, so why go? I would much rather go without the touristy stuff but will have to break down and take the wife one of these years. In the meantime I am going back for caribou south of Deadhorse...

    Dalls Sheep horn removal

    Protaxidermy, that sounds like the best way, instead of boiling the whole horn. Also because mine is double broomed, the ends split and were pretty ragged. I have to show these pics it two posts. Here is the before, as in my avatar, and the first attempt.

    Dalls Sheep horn removal

    I am curious how you guys remove the horns off Dall sheep so they can be cleaned inside the horn? I had one mounted a couple years ago and wasn't happy and had to return it to get it "fixed". I suspect it wasn't handled correctly. It is pretty good now and it is as close as they can get it...

    Well Jake after talking to you tonight, I hope I didn't put you in a bad spot. I sure am sad that I won't be able to go on another hunt with you, but who knows? I certainly enjoyed the sheep hunt last August with you. Best hunt I ever had and the most demanding. Sure enjoyed drinking...

    Henry 22 S,L,LR ?

    A friend has one of the Henry 22's with octogon barrel and about the only thing I didn't like about it was the highlighted writing on the barrel. Of course I am not one for gold engraving but that is just me. Never shot one though and I am like EKC, am about giving up on finding a nice Marlin...

Landed on a lake and started glassing sheep right away. Of course we have to wait until tomorrow to hunt but it was...

    Eagle nest cam

    A little late in the game as they hatched around April 3rd, but still cool to watch. Live feed from an eagle nest in Iowa. Pretty neat to watch the adults bring in the groceries and feed the babies.
