    Coyote(s) with mange....what to do?

    As stated by other Ivermectin works. We had foxes around our farm with mange and I hard boiled a bunch eggs then injected them with 5cc each and put them at the den entrance and did this over a months time and they did clear up. Coyotes? I'd probably not taken the effort because we have way too...

    I like the layout of this photo Larry. What are the guns in the picture?

    New Marlin 1895GBL

    Nice rifle Bridger and even nicer caribou. I haven't had the spring issues yet but I sure appreciate the WWG trigger and ejector I installed. This is my latest boar I got in South Carolina with 1895GBL. I shot him at 39 yards with Winchester ballistic silver tips through the shoulder and I found...

    Which Caliber for a primary Hunting Rifle?

    Most of the elk hunters I know shoot either .300 Win Mag or .338 Win mag, and some shoot 7mm Rem Mag all because of the potential for the shots over 300 yards and the power to put one down at that range. Personally I don't know a single person who uses a .308. I haven't hunted elk yet but have...

    Savage Model 10 Precision Carbine First Shots!

    Cody the S&W M29 and Ruger Super Red Hawk are far superior to the Taurus RB. I'm sorry I let a friend talk me into selling him my Ruger SRH, I thought I'd get a new M629 or another SRH but because of the porting I bought the Taurus. It doesn't lock up as well as the other two and doesn't group...

    Savage Model 10 Precision Carbine First Shots!

    Cody , it's a Marlin 1895GBL in .45-70 I got a couple of months ago for hog hunting and it's a blast to shoot. I replaced the trigger and ejector, now it shoots even better. I think a .44 mag Marlin 1894 would be a great backpack and hog hunting gun as well as for a self-defense weapon. Plus for...

    Savage Model 10 Precision Carbine First Shots!

    Cody, I get that vibe on this forum that most would rather talk about AR rifles. I never cared for them when I was in the Army, though today they are built better and more accurate, still not my cup of tea. I don't shoot competition, but I do hunt and shoot a lot. My favorite would be my muzzle...

    The "big 4" survival firearms are:

    If I had to choose and only have four, for me it's: #1) Our 20 gauge pump that my wife can shoot with slugs or bird shot. #2) Ruger M77MKII in 7mm Rem mag which I've shot woodchucks to bison with. Solids for small game and Barnes X bullets for big game. #3) Glock model 35 in .40 cal with a...

    Great rifle Cody! They used to say that Savage made the most accurate rifles @ their price point, now they make some of the most accurate rifles period.

    New Marlin 1895GBL

    MM, I'm with you on the busy schedule. We are fortunate to own a small farm that we try to manage for better deer and turkeys. Plus we hunt local orchards with management permits when the regular season is not at hand, so I carry a gun in the truck and hunt on the way home or while out seeing...

    New Marlin 1895GBL

    Thanks. I never liked stainless and synthetic either, but we hunt all over and in all kinds of weather so it was just the logical choice. The recoil is not all that bad, just a tad less than my .300 Weatherby mag with a wood stock was. I've used it for everything from woodchucks to buffalo and...

    New Marlin 1895GBL

    Madmax, like your Ruger Alaskan. I carry a Taurus RB 444 in .44 RM when we hike in bear country out west. My hog hunting gear consists of snake boots, thermocell, Ruger M77MKII in 7mm RM, Taurus RB in .44RM, three sharp knives, one filet knife (more handy than one could imagine) and sharpener...
