re: Hunting club poll - ruger35
I keep thinking about picking up a 4-600 acre lease in Mississippi, but can't decide if I will actually drive the 4.5 hours enough to make it worth it. I have a 6 year old daughter I have 50/50 custody with and don't want to miss much time with her just to go hunting. I'm thinking of trying the p...

[quote]Ruger, you shoot the new Prime Centergy? Looks nice with the first lite fusion color.[/quote] Couldn't get my hands on a Centergy, only one dealer within two hours. I shot the Rize and really liked it. That's coming from an Elite. This Obsession M6Z so far is nice. I'd have to say just...

re: Going Rate for Hunting Lease? - ruger35
Even 16th section leases are going for $25-40 an acre. Be prepared to be priced out of hunting in the next 5-10 years or travel quite a bit to hunt. ...

re: Good bow recommendation - ruger35
I'd take a look at the Prime bows. I've never owned a Matthews and was almost dead set on trying them this go round (have owned Hoyt, Bowtech, and Elite). But I shot the Halon 6 and Prime at the same time and couldn't make myself like the Halon over the Rize. I just decided I wanted to give Obsessio...

re: Tuner for 2015 F250 6.2 gasser. - ruger35
I have a 5 Star for my 5.0 F150. I didn't buy it for the enormous hp gains like you got with dirsels, I bought it for towing. Changes shift points, changes shift firmness. Big difference than towing with a stock truck. ...

re: Good bow recommendation - ruger35
With an $800 budget you can shoot a practically brand new bow. Get on archerytalk.com and go to the classifieds. I've bought second hand as well as brand new on archery talk. Just bought my new Obsession bow on there. ...

re: LDWLF Proposes changed to 17/18 deer season - ruger35
With the amount of hunters in this state compared to the land, I was hoping that read 3 deer statewide. We shold go back to what muzzle loader season used to be and get rid of all of these 45-70s and 35 Whelen rifles. I'll probably get flamed, but I think that would help reduce hunting pressure and ...

re: Opinions on Elite Impulse 31? - ruger35
Had an energy 32 that I loved, was a very smooth shooter. Wanted to try something new so I ordered an Obsession M6Z last week. Word of advice, get on Archery Talk and check the classifieds. You can order a new one from one of the site sponsor and get a discount on all of your accessories, plus n...

re: Anyone ever lease land out of state? I.e. Kansas/Missouri - ruger35
[quote]My coworker and 3 of his buddies lease some land in Kansas. They get one tag a piece and the rifle season is only like 10 days long I believe is what he said. They all kill a giant buck every year, but he said it's a crapshoot because you don't want to fill that tag early in the week and then...

Anyone ever lease land out of state? I.e. Kansas/Missouri - ruger35
If our public land elk hunt plans don't go through for this year, I definitely plan on making an out of state hunt next season. Entirely too hard to try to find a club/lease to join around here even with willing to spend good money. On that note I have contacted a few outfitters and gotten prices...

re: Colorado Public Elk Hunt - ruger35
[quote]The X2 is a nice pack as well, the other guy with me had one, but it's not as versatile of a system and doesn't quite have enough cubic inches. I trained a lot with only my frame and strapped 45 lb plates to it.[/quote] Which Kuiu camo pattern did you go with? I see their pattern that rese...

re: Colorado Public Elk Hunt - ruger35
[quote]Both of those are top notch but you pay a lot for them. I went with an Eberlestock Transformer pack & frame and couldn't be happier. I don't see how it would even be possible to pack out a hind quarter without a frame pack. Start camping and hiking a lot and test your gear out. You don't want...

re: Colorado Public Elk Hunt - ruger35
[quote]We downloaded Colorado map from onxmaps and Im glad we did. We skirted the property line between private and BLM land on the hike in that I would not have been certain of if we didn't have the GPS. Boots and pack are important. Don't go cheap on those items and get very familiar with them. ...
