Your killing me smalls

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

Its not all that early.  Look at these dates.  This guy dropped between these 2 pics.  Looked and looked, then gave up and stumbled on his left side on the last day of mf elk while doing some last minute scouting for deer.  3 years later a guy i know fibds the other side  :bash:

Went yesterday and found a few browns, I’d say it’s a 50/50 mix of dropped and packing. Obviously the smaller bulls are still holding

The closure of wildlife areas aren't making any difference. 4 guys went and picked over the flow today. Came out with 40+

Actually that’s pretty standard
Hurray for me and go screw yourself crowd

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.
