Re: Mescalero Rez Hunting in New Mexico

I drew to hunt there last year. The woods were exceptionally dry. A shovel and fire extinguisher in every vehicle was mandatory or you weren't allowed to hunt and they didn't tell you that until you checked in. Bird numbers were okay and we had a good time regardless, but nothing like the old days D...

Re: Coffee..

Mostly use an AeroPress for coffee here. Makes a concentrate. Low acid. Dilute with hot water to taste, or not.
Nothing breakable, easy to travel with or take to camp. We get our coffee from a local roaster that
specializes in dark roasts.

Re: NM Dusky grouse

Nice. Love me some Blue Grouse. Not sure why they changed the name to dusky grouse though? They will always be blue grouse to me and they are outstanding table fair. I'm with you on the name change. Based on the DNA, split into two species, but I never liked it. Hunted Blue Grouse for 20 years here...

NM Dusky grouse

Took my lab out for some grouse hunting in northern New Mexico. We didn't find much, but we didn't get skunked, she had a blast, and I got to stretch my lungs out a bit.

EGW scope mounts are all the Slopster uses on his Savage 220 bolt action 20 gauge shotguns. Rock solid stable and no disappointments. Fantastic mounts. :thumbup:
Agreed. Top shelf. Can't imagine their mounts being any better than they are.

Re: Eastern "Mountain" turkeys

He describes them as looking quite different from the restocked birds. From the book description: “... master hunter and woodsman Herb McClure of Cleveland,...

Fly fishing trip to Southern Colorado

One antidote for turkey season withdrawal for me is fly fishing for trout. In early June we went to the upper Rio Grande and tributaries near Creede, Colorado. The severe drought meant that the water levels were much lower than usual for that time of year, but it also meant that the fishing was some...

Re: Savage Bolt Action Turkey Gun!

I wouldn't be surprised if they'll make you whatever LOP you want, but they make the stock in two standard LOP, 13.5" and 12.5". Which one are you using? I’m short.. so sitting down youth stocks are almost perfect. Some are too short, but some are just right Mine is the 13.5, but I could easily see...

Welcome. This is a great place. I grew up in Western Mass (South Hadley) and hunted and fished all over that part of the state. I go back to visit family and old friends and hunt turkeys every year.

No, that's a good number for 50 yards. It would imply something like 280 to 290 at 40 yards, a good place to be.

Re: Turkey tote

I use the paracord kind with a single loop on each end. Works great. Makes carrying them long distances a whole lot easier. I also carry some bags to put over bloody heads before synching up the paracord loop.
