  1. Big Game
    Hello! I've recently caught an itch for bear hunting!

  2. Archers Lodge
    After spending many weekends driving hours and walking miles scouting, I had an opportunity with this stud mulie the day after opener. I couldn't be more thrilled with my first archery buck after chasing them around last Jan. I think I'm addicted now. These are such elusive, cautious creatures...

  4. Big Game
    I really like 30-30 but finances are tight so I'm looking between a howa in 308 and a marlin in 30-30. Does anyone have experience hunting in southern Arizona near Tucson with a 30-30? Am I being foolish not just going with the 308? To clarify the reason for the two rounds is that I have priced...

    I’m thinking of trying my luck OTC turks. I didn’t get drawn... again... but I’m not letting that stop me. I don’t have much experience in AZ, thinking of unit 23. It’ll probably be more like a camping trip, but at least I’ll be outdoors. Any tips would be much appreciated! Thanks, Jeff

  11. Firearms, Shooting, Optics, & Outdoor Gear
    I've long been a fan of quality modular systems. It affords the hunter/shooter to have several firearms at an affordable price. No one can argue, the flexibility of the AR platform is fantastic. Although I own one, I don't have it for hunting purposes, so my caliber selection is based on my...
