    Questions for guys that served in the military

    Annapolis is where Marine & Naval folks go to get a degree, a real degree......and some from every branch try and get one from the SEALS. Most never make it a week. Marines are right up there with Navy folks in my book,.....some way beyond most any squid I served with. I served with some great...

    14,900 extra applicants in NM draw this year over 160k for 59k tags or something. Looks like I will be helping Paul some this year. I know the unit he drew & hunted it 8 times so far. Should have kept my original 3rd choice But my deer unit is across 180 from his. And...

    I was looking at replacing my CH with a FHF,but $180 for a pack on my chest? My 1st CH strap is still good & on back up binos .20 yrs old & still stretchy.

    Taken the plunge.... Buy Once, Cry Once...

    Good luck on the solo single pack out too. I have a MR crewcab that is great for light packing,scouting ,glassing & deer hunts but no way I would haul an elk in it.Maybe I'm still getting used to it and adjusting with weight in off season will help. But I am going back to my Eberlestock J104...

    Say it Ain't So.....Arizona & NM

    Even if the enlightened sanctuario folks get it passed,which I doubt,it would be ignored. PC is right that it is different here. Hell even the wacko far left culti's would be rednecks in SF. Like a foreign country almost. I still get corrected on my CA spanish & all. OK ,it is bad anyway. I...

    Say it Ain't So.....Arizona & NM

    NM is blue in city centers. But most of NM is very rural & there are many trappers & lion hunters where I live. Like half the dogs are hunters.
