General Elk Hunting / Re: Change Wildlife Habitat Lawsuits?????
« on: March 17, 2016, 11:21:27 AM »
Blacktail Slayer,

This is definitely a major issue....there are law firms that have entire staffs dedicated to finding lawsuits they can become involved in (endangered species act) as a way to generate income. They do get reimbursed at a rate that is often 4-5X their standard, high rates. All they have to do is get involved and it starts generating income for the firm/group.

Brian Call and Ty Stubblefield discussed this and several other issues related to Public Lands and Hunting in Episode 93 of the Gritty Bowmen podcast. It's worth a watch/listen:

Hunt Planner / Re: Max Points Wyoming
« on: January 14, 2016, 08:29:56 AM »

I'm not sure what unit would be best in your situation. I'm still a ways off from drawing a good tag in Wyoming, so I haven't really started researching units yet. With just a couple points, I've been trying to draw a General Archery tag every other year or so. Hopefully someone else can weigh in and give you their thoughts....however, there are quite a few people in that max point pool, so I can see some guys holding their unit of choice a little close to avoid extra competition in the draws...  :-X

Other Big Game Hunting / Re: Broadhead weight for moose
« on: January 14, 2016, 08:26:14 AM »
I would agree with the others...broadhead weight probably isn't as critical as overall arrow weight AND bow/arrow tuning. However, weight up front often helps with arrow tuning, so a heavier insert or a 125 grain head will increase your arrow's FOC and improve arrow flight, which in turns, improves penetration. There have been many moose shot with 100 and 125 grain was said previously, hit the spot and you'll be just fine with your set up!

Hunting Gear / Re: Exo, Kuiu, or Kifaru??
« on: January 13, 2016, 06:41:49 PM »
It really depends on what you want out of your pack. Tenzing makes the TZ2220 which was a GREAT daypack. However, as soon as I shot an elk, I had to limp out with a moderate load and get a bigger pack to haul any substantial meat. Since I liked to go fast and furious, I always went back to the two-pack system, but I always dreamed of finding a pack that would allow me to go fast and light AND pack a heavy load.

My disclaimer is that I have never used a Kifaru pack, but I have no doubt that they are quality packs.....heck, Aron Snyder uses them, so I know they are good. Outside of Kifaru, I have owned and used packs from Blacks Creek, Eberlestock, Badlands, Sitka, Kuiu, Mystery Ranch, Tenzing, Alps, and a few more I'm sure I've forgotten to mention. When I found the EXO 3500, it was the pack I'd been dreaming about for years.

It is light (4 pounds), compresses for easy day use, is comfortable and has a low profile when empty. It has the capacity (actually 4500 ci) to expand and carry enough gear for 5-7 days. The real beauty of it shines through when you load it up. I'm not talking about a guesstimate of 100+ pounds....I'm talking about true, half-an-elk, heavy loads. It has truly bridged the gap from daypack to load hauler, and shines in every category that is important to me.

For the way I hunt, there are only 2-3 other packs that I'd even put in the same category as my EXO pack.
