I was wanting to try and get some of the important peopleís attention at Weatherby and see if they would consider chambering a few standard Vanguard rifles in .340 Wby Mag as the next Nation Rifle. I donít know if they would consider it or not?
I didnít get in the last ďNation RifleĒ because I was late to the game. I look at my 6.5-300 as a ďNation RifleĒ. What do you guys think?

My buddy and I are thinking about going on another bear hunt next year. He wants to hunt in Canada 🇨🇦 this time. I would be cool with that. Could I get some help from our Canadian members? I canít spend more than $2500 this time, I would like to spend less if I could.
Again this hunt would be for 2019.

The weather was nice yesterday so I took my Elite and my Dan Toelke Whip out.
I was on fire with both. I like it when you are so much in the zone it seems that the arrows just float at what you are wanting to hit.
I totally destroyed a couple unexpecting leaves with the whip. Shots were at 15-25 yards. I was shooting at 40 yards with my Elite. I love shooting bows.

Archery / Excalibur crossbows

Last year I came close to getting one last year. I am close to getting one this year too. Wife needs more convincing. She says the one I want is expensive for something I will only hunt 4-5 days with. I told her you never know I might really like to hunt with it. She said she has no doubt that I will shoot it but just doubts the amount I will hunt with it because I like my other bows too much.
How all has experience with one?

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Things to do in Ontario

My wife,two daughters and I may go to a softball tournament in Battle Creek, Michigan. We thought about going east or north after the softball is done and going into Canada. Is there any fun family things to do within 300 miles of Battle Creek, Michigan in Ontario Province?
When I was younger like 18 or 19 we didnít need a passport and we went across by Detroit,Michigan. I will be honest, we just went to drink and see the women that were working at establishments where they didnít wear a lot or any clothes. We also found out that we couldnít bring beer back if we were not 21. They were cool and just took the beer.

Not suppose to be this warm. Out with the .54 today. Light drizzle to boot. Tape over the muzzle so I am good to go. Just need a doe to walk within 60 or so yards.

I was watching this channel today which I donít really do real often but do from time to time. This one guy was in Montana and in Missoula in particular and goes on a tour of a brewery. The beer that was being produced was called ďBong WaterĒ and had a big Pot leaf on the can. I donít support recreational use of drugs especially all the problems that have came with the use of drugs in my family over the years. The outdoor theme channels are suppose to be family friendly tv and I am not going to support that channel by subscribing to it. I was very surprised to see it and not pleased.

Got a couple speed loaders ready and backpack loaded up. Supposed to get some snow in the morning. Using my .54 TC Hawken and a .530 round ball under 100 grains of goex olde eynsford fffg powder. Had some decent groups with this combo. Round balls have been a challenge for a while. Something always happens like misfires, front sight getting bumped off, rushed shots or plain misses. I will get one with a round ball!
I start nights tomorrow also. Going out until noon unless I get one earlier.

Has anyone tried them out yet?

Shot a doe with the 6.5-300@4:15pm. About 100 yards. There was 7 out in the field and took the broadside one. She went about 40 yards and lots of blood again for the 127 grain Barnes Lrx.
