    It’s going to be headed out to @TheChunk91 on Saturday. It’s been blast having it and using it. I’ll be uploading some pics soon. It accompanied me on our yearly bear hunt and didn’t get much action. It did get cold and wet hunting the thick stuff with me. Saw lots of deer, but bear hunting...

    My game bag was heavy and it was nearly 11 o’clock. I decided to call it quits and leave on a good note as I was beaming with delight having a big fox squirrel in my vest. Halfway up the hill a small gray was barking for attention to be added to my game pouch. I found his beady little eye in my...

    A small gray must have noticed my confidence was shaken as he took rest on a limb about 15 yards away, a perfect shot for someone who can shoot.... his gamble on my shooting being complete crap that morning took a bad turn when I sent the 22. LR through his ears. He fell into a heap on the...

    I got my Grandfather’s old Ruger 77/22 boat paddle back from my brother a couple weeks ago. I had to take some range time and make some adjustments before it was shooting at sub squirrel MOA. It was back on track very quickly. I went out Wednesday morning around 7:30 AM; the weather was...

    I think @TheChunk91, is next in line. I have one more good squirrel hunt I would love to take it on. If you guys don’t mind blood I’ll have more in-depth pics of the process.

    So I quartered that doe up earlier today and I used my #73L for everything. Normally I like to cut the lower leg and hooves off with a bone saw, but I couldn’t find it so I went ahead and cut through the tendons and ligaments and just gave them a little twist. I was figuring my edge would be...

    The #73 is a favorite of mine and I don’t mind telling anyone about it haha. You know as well as I do how nice they are, your #73 is as beautiful as can be and I’m sure it would preform flawlessly in the field as well.

    My dad put the Frontier to use cleaning up some pvc pipe yesterday. It holds an edge very well so far. I need to use it in the kitchen and see how it will handle food prep. The nice long clip blade makes me think it will serve well.

    I took my CZ 22 with us on our hunt the other morning. My wife spotted a nice gray squirrel after the doe left the field and I couldn’t resist. Another well placed shot left him limp. I used the Frontier stockman posted above to skin him out. So far so good.

    I love that stockman. It would be awesome to find another like it. What is the overall length on it?

    So far I’ve field dressed and quartered a big doe with this one and now skinned a smaller doe with it. The knife is too sharp at this point and is extremely unforgiving on the hide and meat, when it starts cutting it doesn’t want to stop. The knife is still hair shaving sharp, but I still strop...

    My wife and I went out for the last day of in-line antlerless deer. We got out there about an hour before daylight and jumped a big doe in the darkness of the early morning. She waited until we were only about 5 feet away before hopping up and running off. Daylight broke and the morning was...

    In a way the 77/22 boat paddle is, at least for me, butt ugly. I’ll take a plain piece of wood over a synthetic stock almost any day, but my grandfather loved his and I learned a lot of envy from him. The stories he told about it made me want one and I let him know on multiple occasion I would...

    Saturday morning when my brother and I were in the stand after whitetails there were a couple huge fox squirrels taunting me. My hunt this morning was intended to bring them back in my game pouch. Which blade do you like to use on your #54, I have one and I’m thinking the big spear point would...

    I really wanted to use my grandfather’s Ruger 77/22, but after getting it back from my brother on Sunday I realized he adjusted the scope for his wife to shoot farther distances at coons. I need to take some range time; maybe tomorrow I’ll get myself sighted back in. It would have been perfect...

    I used the tail method to skin these ones out and I’ll never look back. My technique needs some tweaking, but I’m already more effiecent this way then I ever was before with the center cut, rabbit method. I used my Buck 102 to cut the feet and head off as I didn’t want to ruin the razor edge...

    Not too long after I heard another one bounding across the leaves. It took a few seconds of tracing his movement in the scope before he settles on the Y of a small sapling, another clean head shot and two grays were bagged. I left the stand an hour later without seeing anything else from my...

    I got home from work this morning (midnight shift), reheat the leftover coffee, filled the thermos and grabbed the CZ. It was about 60 degrees this morning and switched back and forth from a mist to a full on rain. There was a slight breeze that came and went all morning long. I usually still...

    Venison has fed my family since before I could walk, a tag filled meant there was money in the bank for a tank of gas to get to work instead of the grocery store. My Dad’s knives were utilitarian and simple, a Buck 422 and a 119 took care of things just as well as my stag scaled custom made slip...

    Indeed it is, it was sitting atop the Sako P72 when I got it and decided it was good enough for me. It’s pretty clear for its age and holds a zero well. I’d like to think that the previous owner decimated his squirrel hollow and sharpened down too many Case peanuts to nothing, but needles and...
