  1. First night, find/put a stand that has the best view of the property overall. It looks like it would be very close to the blue dot. As other have said, glass, glass, glass. Note (write down) everything you see, where it came from, where it went, etc.. You might want to throw in a rattle or two. Next morning, Go to a stand that will allow you to glass any promising parts of the property that you couldn't see from the night before. Glass, glass, glass. Find the does, bucks will be there.

    Favorite deer knife / steel type.

    I too have gone to Havalon knives for most game cleaning/gutting/skinning. Don't get me wrong, I still bring a "hunter" with me every hunt, but the Havalons are just so convienient, it doesn't make sense to use anything else.

    VERY SAD NEWS

    He was also the co-founder of Sitka clothing line, but left them when they became too corporate and started Kuiu.
  4. That was the plan all along. Mainstream media would like you to believe that Trump wanted to force teachers to carry handguns and rifles to school everyday. AFAIK - The idea was to allow teachers who qualified for CCW to get training in active-shooter scenarios and then allow them to CCW in these gun-free school zones.
  5. Defensive AR ammo is constructed to emulate the penetration potential of defensive handgun rounds (according to the FBI). The major difference is that it takes a lot more energy-dumping to stop a .223 than it does a 9mm in the same distance. A long gun is always preferred in defensive shootings because it gives you more stand-off distance than a handgun possibly could, add the increased effectiveness and better optics, it would probably be safer all around. Obviously, if concealed carry, the handguns rule in giving the responder the element of anonymity.
  6. These children were let down at every level by adults that are supposed to protect them. What I'd like to see, is a dept. created federally to build, train and deploy school security throughout the country, much like air marshals, but assign an appropriate number based on the size of the school. Hiring preference given to ex-military. As for this officer standing-by while children are slaughtered, well sometimes you have to be a man.

    No more AR's

    Retired/armed military in every school - provided and trained by Homeland Security. Secure all entry to schools with doors, cameras,etc.. Evaluate psychotropic drug prescriptions to our youth. And, the not so popular: Universal background checks and integration of mental health records with NICS.

    Release the Dam Memos Now!

    For those that don't fully understand how dangerous this really is. The surveillance that we're talking about does not entail a bunch of agents breaking into a persons phone lines and pressing "play" on a tape recorder. The surveillance is all already done, and has been for a few years now. You, me, the president, Mike Tyson, everybody - they have everything ALREADY!, saved on giant hard drives at a secret location. The FISA warrant just allows them to access and compile all of that info on a particular individual. IMHO - this process MUST be kept as difficult as possible When President Trump made claims of "wiretapping", he was laughed at, and people assumed that he and his people didn't have access to ALL of the things that the previous administration was doing. He is now just biding his time strategically, for both the mid-terms and 2020 elections.

    Release the Dam Memos Now!

    Funniest part about all of this nonsense from both sides - there is growing evidence that Russia did, in fact, orchestrate this ENTIRE circus. Hilary emails, Trump collusion, Senate and DOJ investigations, hearings, FBI firings, etc.. The WHOLE thing! They (Kremlin) are basically sitting back and watching American politics chase itself around and around.

    It was the cheerleaders.

    Disappointed in Remington

    I think this article applies to this post: https://www.fieldandstream.com/blogs/gun-nuts/2014/02/rifles-taking-it-personally Although he references the SC models, the Portuguese 70's are widely said to be even better.

    To each their own. Nostalgics aside, there are many gun folks saying that the best model 70's ever produced are being made right now.

    What exactly makes them not near as good? There are some slight differences in the build of each, but generally speaking, the new ones have better wood and will shoot the doors off most pre-64s. From the collectors' and purists' standpoint, obviously a 50+ year-old pre-64 is more valuable. Truth be told, If I was told to pick either an unfired pre-64 or a NIB model 70 for a pure hunting rifle, I would surely take the new one every day of the week.

    Quite a common complaint; that newer 700's are having issues. Oddly enough, I keep hearing that newer model 70's are as good or better than any ever produced in the past.

    Why can't people comprehend

    This is how the majority of Americans feel on the subject, as do I. IMO - they should be given immediate legal status, and be allowed/required to apply for citizenship. Any felons should be sent back, no questions asked.
