Oct 2010Turkey Hunting in the rain
October 27th, 2010
Hello all I hope my post is accepted. I hunt in Washington State and it rains a lot in turkey season up here. I am new to the state and was wondering if I should use the same hunting method as if it was clear weather or do you suggest other tactics? In season, I normally set up a blind set in a corner of a semi-open field, about 3-5 feet in a tree line. Finally, this is my second year so any tips sure would be useful, such as calls, sents, camouflage, or anything else you think would be important. Thanks and good hunting this season!
Oct 2010Scope rings Marlin XL7 .30-06
October 7th, 2010
I was thinking about picking up Leupold scope rings for my Marlin XL7 .30-06 that has a rail to mount the scope. The problem is I just don’t understand why some rings are much more expensive then others. Am I just buying a brand name at this point? So any advice on what type of scope rings I should use to mount my Nikon Buckmasters 3 I have know idea what type of rings or whats recommend to use. I have never mounted a scope before and i don’t know the tech specs of the rings but the scope is 9 X 50 … Thanks in advance- Richard
Oct 2010Bluegill fishing in October
October 4th, 2010
I have a 10 acre pond over run with bluegill and looking for a pond management site and a good game plan to implement for getting a good start on clean out some bluegill via fishing? What are the good baits and lures for fall bluegill fishing? It is completely overrun and I did put 50 largemouth bass out there the first of October, but I was wanting to fish the bigger ones.
P.S -is fishing with a rig and bobber and live bait the best trick for fall?

I often wonder why I buy such nice rifles because of the beautiful stock and know it’s a matter of time before I scratch or nick them. Anyway, I am more retentive then most about keeping my stuff in good condition. I got a scratch nick on my rifle’s satin finish walnut stock about 1/3 of an inch long. Any proven suggestions would be appreciated. I do not want to strip down the whole stock because I don’t have the time, know how, or funds to do so.
Thanks in advance for your help!
upset and and a bit pissed..

October 2nd, 2010
Hello all, what is the best scope in your opinion for a 7mm mag for elk hunting? I am in the process now of planning an elk hunting trip a year from now and wanted to get a jump on the best scope. To prepare I need your suggestions, opinions, plus specific scopes with brand names, power, etc. I will be hunting in Colorado and using a Winchester Black shadow.
Thanks in Advance,
Oct 2010Handgun deer hunting
October 1st, 2010
Hey all thought I would ask if there are any handgun hunters here? My question, looking for load suggestions for deer hunting using a 357 magnum? I will be using my 357 magnum ( 6 1/2″ revolver) for deer hunting this season. Some say that the load is too light for deer but the longest shots would be 45 yards at best, and my red dot scope does well out at that range.
Looking for load suggestions,
Sep 2010Terriers good squirrel hunting dogs?
September 26th, 2010
Hello all and thanks for the invitation. I’ll jump right in and ask a question. I have a Jack Russel terrier that is a great squirrel and small game or varmint dog. Jake will trees squirrels better than any other I have ever seen and a popular envy of all my hunting buds, and many ask if I’ll ever breed him because they want a pup. So I am considering breeding Jake to produce excellent varmint squirrel hunting dogs. Are there other breeds that are known for their squirrel hunting or is Jake just a fluke? Anyone care to share a website that I can read up on the different breeds?
