    👍 late season archery elk hunting is a supreme challenge in SW Idaho. With the mulie rut in late November, ones success rate goes way up.

    .308 or .338 Caliber Elk and Up Cartridge

    To reach out farther, I built a 300 PRC to add to my faithful and 99% effective 7mm Rem magnum. Because of a shoulder surgery, I have not shot it. However, I’ve seen great results on long shots (800+ yds) on elk via friends.

    Very sorry to hear of your shoulder injury. It never hurts to get a second medical opinion. If surgery is recommended, look forward a highly regarded shoulder surgeon. If surgery isn’t required and physical therapy required, be diligent. In March of 2020, I had extensive shoulder surgery and...

    Cold weather socks.... any new must haves?

    Not “new,” but I go with a wicking sock with stretch. Fox River or Wigwam CoolMax socks are affordable. A few years ago I bought a package of Injini Toe Socks that had a liner, a support sock, etc. I like them as the individual toes help with the cold or the heat. Merino wool socks are just part...

This rifle handles like...

    How many layers of merino wool?

    I love merino wool that is light to mid weight and also use Keen’s fitted merino wool socks - mid or heavy weight depending on the weather. I start with a UA shirtsleeve oversized compression shirt then my long sleeve merino wool zip up mock or t-neck shirt. LLB’s wind stopper fleece vest and...

    Montana x-bows illegal

    The mules getting shot for cow elk or cow moose is a longtime fable. It’s in the same fables’ group of the hunters who survived freezing to death by killing their horses and then climbing in side them, but were trapped when their horses froze. 😂

    Come on Ledd. What is with your hostility? It is sadly apparent that you do not understand the impact of a disability. Consider apologizing. LRH members should be supportive. If you disagree with someone’s post, think first and then reply tactfully. There is already enough hate in this world
