re: 6.5 grendal vs 6.8 spc vs 6.5 Creedmoor - A_bear
I'm 25 and I have one. I don't know what age has to do with it, they're badass guns for all shooters. And yeah the wolf ammo is cheap for plinking and it's pretty accurate. My buddy is borrowing mine tomorrow to bring deer hunting. I'll have my creedmoor only because my scope is much better on my cr...

re: 6.5 grendal vs 6.8 spc vs 6.5 Creedmoor - A_bear
Good choice. You won't be disappointed. My Grendel is a straight beast. Only thing it needs is a good trigger which I'll be ordering from geissele tomorrow when they go on sale. ...

re: 6.5 grendal vs 6.8 spc vs 6.5 Creedmoor - A_bear
I would go Grendel. You can shoot hornady 123 grains out of it. It has very very mild recoil. I don't think a creedmoor has much kick to it but I remember being 10 and being scared to death of a 243 and the creedmoor kicks harder than a 243. The Grendel is more than capable of killing any deer. My G...

re: Restringing a bow question - A_bear
If you're in the Baton Rouge area, call Cabelas tomorrow and ask them if they can restring a bow the same day. You'll have to tell them the model and they'll have to see if they have that string in stock. They carry Bear bows so they may have the string you need. They're open tomorrow too so they're...

re: Restringing a bow question - A_bear
I wouldn't trust dicks archery department. Not from bad experiences, just seems like they wouldn't know shite. You should definitely bring it to Bowies or spillway, or even Cabelas has a good archery department. Tell them it was dry fired. You might need more than just a string. Dry firing a bow is p...

re: WMAs closed to duck hunters for days after Thanksgiving - A_bear
Sherburne is definitely closed. I made that mistake a couple years ago. Ended up with an official documented warning instead of a ticket. Luckily the game warden was a nice guy. ...

re: Cottonmouth Boats - A_bear
About 25k. When I got my quote from gatortail it was 26k without the blind, gator glide and shark eyes. So I got more on the prodigy and paid less. And I like the paint job on it better than gator tails. ...

re: Cottonmouth Boats - A_bear
I'm sure they're good boats but I love my prodigy. I priced a package from gatortail and I wanted gator glide and shark eye running lights and gatortail wouldn't do that for me. So I priced it without those 2 things and it was still more expensive than what I paid for my prodigy with those 2 options...

re: To use a fluorocarbon leader or not? - A_bear
I only bass fish and I use braid on every pole except my crankbait rods. I never use a leader. I don't see the point in using braid and then putting weaker line on the end. That makes no sense to me. Might as well not even have the braid to begin with. I feel like fish are so focused on the bait, th...

re: Old Honda 300 Fourtrax - A_bear
[quote]I love my hondas, but the old brakes are terrible.[/quote] :lol: I love how every Honda 300 "for sale" ad lists the status of the brakes. Either it says "brakes work like new" or "doesn't have front/rear brakes". Any other 4 wheeler ad doesn't list if the brakes work because it's typicall...

re: Shotgun Recommendations? - A_bear
For what you're looking to do with it, any shotgun should do. It sounds like your gun won't get dirty or be subjected to harsh environments. Either of the guns you listed will last a lifetime if you're just shooting clays and occasionally dove hunting. If you needed something that will stand up to t...

re: Best platform for 300 blackout? - A_bear
I had 2 300 blackouts and as said, the ballistics are pretty bad. Inside 150-200 yards they're ok for deer hunting but they won't do much more than my 6.5 grendel will do at those ranges. However, my Grendel will keep knocking them down way past 200 yards. Recoil is about the same between the two an...

44 degrees in sherburne In a climber with my pse over looking an oak ridge Spooked 3-4 on my way in, hoping at least a doe will come around. Put my blind on my boat yesterday and was supposed to be heading to the wax this morning but my buddy backed out and I didn't want to go alone. So I'm try...

re: Thoughts on PSE Stinger X - A_bear
I'm a PSE guy. I've been in love with the x force since I was a kid watching the x force commercials on tv. My first bow was a pse and once I could afford it, I bought an x force that I still use. Even though I really like pse, my recommendation on a beginner bow would be the Diamond infinite edge. ...
