    Leupold's customer service--Excellent...

    I have 4 Leupold scopes dating from 40 years ago to last year. After about 20 years of use I had to send my original which was a 2 x 7 in and had it back within two weeks. Only problem I have ever had with one - The screw on end at the end of the scope had come off in my scabbard and luckily...

    Kill the wolf?

    In Alberta wolves have been open season for years and we still have too many. Some Counties pay a bounty for shooting them. We feel bad that they borrowed our problem and started it in Idaho and Montana We just wish they would open a Grizzly season so we wouldn't have so many out here on the...

    Bi pod suggestion

    Several years ago I found a site by Varmint Al in which he had directions for making your own shooting stick. I made me one and since have made several for others.

    Caliber Selection Recommendations?

    Two of my boys shoot 7 mag composite stalkers. I shoot one in 2506. My 7 mag is the old Browning BBR which has been a great rifle. I'd recommend the 7 mag as it will do everything you need without the punishment of the 300.

We have quartered and packed moose out but usually just lash them on our home made game sled made from a plastic barrel and drag them out from the saddle horn. We quarter them if we need to. We also have a game cart that I made. It has one wheel...
