    Neither were pass through. The 4x3 was just under the skin on the opposite shoulder. The forked horn was quartering away from be. I shot him about mid ribs. Bullet went through both lungs just missing the heart, stopping in the left shoulder. I shot a bear a in 2010 that was delicious. I shared some at the west coast WA zip fest GTG. It was bear that never saw a dumpster in it's life and ate very few fish. Diet/habitat are key. They can be good eating but many (most) are overpoweringly gamey. .02

    Not monsters, but they will be good eating. First one shot at 216 yards. Didn't take a step. 168 grain 308 Hornady Amax behind the shoulder. #2 POV shot. #3 a second on that hung around and was tagged by nephew who was about 800 yards away. I radioed him after I shot the first onje and asked if he wanted to volunteer his tag for a forked horn meat buck. He agreed and the second buck fell at 205 yards without a step. #4 caped out buck. #5 the view from camp. We used packers, horses and mules from Kennedy meadows pack station. We rode in, they dropped us off the day before opening day and left. They returned 4 days later and carried our deer and gear out. We walked out. Our camp was at 9700' Saw one hunter in 5 days. Kinda odd for Ca hunting.

    I was never on the list, but would be willing to put it through its paces. I'm sure someone else will chime in and you can send it to them.

    I made a 20" pull fid out of 9/16" aluminum rod I had. Drilled out the end and crimped and JB welded a hooked 16 penny nail in the end. Made a loooong taper and used the fid twice, about a 40" burry.

    Depending on what you plan on doing, you might need a truck, chain and 1 1/2 inch pipe. This was some old rope my dad picked up at an auction. He was bidding on a crane winch and this stuff was on it. The single hardest splice I've ever done. Used rope sucks to splice big and dirty rope sucks even more. I did this for my brother. It will be a tow/recovery rope. Still needs to be stitched.

    Again, not a selfie, but you get the idea... Edit: That was weird, the splice pics weren't supposed to tag along with my mug...

    My wife has Celiac and is completely gluten free. About 3 1/2 hears now. Went years undiagnosed. Thought it was GURD and all sorts of other stuff. Once correctly diagnosed and gluten eliminated from the diet, she has been GTG. The whole family is on a modified diet, but the kids and I do eat bread and stuff she can't. She makes all kinds of gluten free breads and dishes that typically have wheat flower. Very creative and the food actually tastes normal, really good even. Glad you figured it out and have relief. Beer is good! Glad you can still imbibe!

    I have two Leupold's. One is rated to 600 yards and one to 1000. http://www.cabelas.com/product/Leupold-RX-1000i-TBR-Compact-Rangefinder-with-DNA/1161086.uts?Ntk=AllProducts&searchPath=%2Fcatalog%2Fsearch.cmd%3FN%3D0%26fsch%3Dtrue%26Ntk%3DAllProducts%26Ntt%3Dleupold%2Brangefinder%26WT.srch%3D1%26WT.tsrc%3DPPC%26WT.mc_id%3Dgoogle|opt_Rangefinders_Leupold|USA%26rid%3D20%26WT.z_mc_id1%3D43700001033597537%26gclid%3DCPDPmpaUrLoCFes9QgodeXgAwg%26gclsrc%3Daw.ds&Ntt=leupold+rangefinder&WTz_l=PPC These specs are for reflective objects and realistic. For trees, rocks (non-shiny and in the sun) and deer, they are good to about 60-70 percent of the rating. They were about $250 and 375 respectively. The glass on the Leupolds is great and I find myself using them to glass as a monocular often. Both are only 6 power, but again, good glass for a LRF. I have family/friends who have skimped and bought Bushnells and another, can't remember which, cheapo for $150ish They're not happy with them. Poor glass and only 40-50% of rating consistently. Buy once cry once. If you need it for muzzle loader range only the 600 should be more than enough. my next one will be a Vectronix Terrapin. March or tax return time if the wife will let me. http://www.scoutbasecamp.com/product/vectronix-terrapin-pocket-laser-range-finder-with-distance-measurement-and-accessories-green Hope that helps.
