Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / How is your winter so far
« on: December 13, 2017, 03:46:25 PM »
We are getting beat up pretty bad here in Ontario with lots of snow and cold temps. They forecasted a good old Canadian winter for us this year and for a change they were right.
How is your winter shaping up.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Late Season Moose Hunt
« on: November 20, 2017, 03:20:27 PM »
We are heading to Thunder Bay (Ontario) tomorrow at 11:30 pm for an 8 day late season moose hunt packing a bull tag for 8 guys. I am bringing my 7MM Rem Mag with Federal 160 grain Trophy Bonded Tip.
Looks like good snow to track so we are optimistic. This is my first year for this hunt so as you can imagine I am fired up.

Last year the group had a cow tag.......and you guessed it, saw no cows but several nice bulls. I have no cell service this far back in the northern bush so I will report when I get back

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Recipes
« on: November 15, 2017, 02:45:16 PM »
This may have already been brought up in the past so excuse my ignorance if it has but I was thinking as I am frying some whitetail steaks in butter and then lowering the heat and adding a can of mushroom soup to let simmer for 20 minutes or so for supper tonight  :) that it would be great to have a section to share recipes only on the nation.

I can only guess that many members would have lots of recipes for whitetail, moose, elk.........etc.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Whitetail hunt
« on: November 09, 2017, 01:47:33 PM »
Just got back from a three day whitetail hunt in Burks Falls and we ended up with three deer, two bucks and a doe.
Here is the nice 8 point my buddy got, he also shot a nice 6 point so he was the winner of the buck pot. I had two nice bull moose 40 yards broadside but out of season here......of course
Good time had by all

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Whitetail Hunt
« on: November 01, 2017, 02:32:03 PM »
Heading to Burk's Falls (Ontario) on Saturday to prepare for the start of rifle whitetail season on the 6th. We don't need a lot of prep to stands and trails due to multiple trips throughout the year but want to get there early to get camp set-up and enjoy a few days of pre-hunting with the gang.
Will post results when I return. We have (3) doe permits for 8 hunters.
For my USA friends, we automatically get a buck tag when we buy a whitetail license and have to apply for antlerless tag in a lottery

Ammo / Federal Trophy Copper
« on: October 17, 2017, 04:27:07 PM »
I read on another post that members had this ammo for sale. I am a big fan of Federal Trophy Bonded Tip and was wondering if folks could share some on game performance with the Trophy Copper........

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Moose hunt.....calf only
« on: October 16, 2017, 05:24:15 AM »
Heading up to Burk's Falls Friday to Monday for a calf only moose hunt. We have pictures of a few different cows and calves on our trail cams. This is more or less a warm up for our bull moose hunt in Thunder Bay in late November

Ammo / Partition or Barnes
« on: October 02, 2017, 01:39:40 PM »
I ran out of Federal Trophy Bonded 160 grainers for my 7MM Remi on the weekend, thinking my local gun shop or Cabela's Canada would have stock so I was not too worried but struck out and it doesn't look good getting any before my moose hunt Oct 21st so here are my two options.

Federal Nosler Partition 160 grainers or Barnes TTSX 150 grainers and some range time to re-sight
What do you folks recommend. I am leaning towards the Barnes but am open for suggestions. I can see the smile on your face Roger....... ;)

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / SA-08
« on: September 21, 2017, 02:32:48 PM »
I just ordered a new 12 gauge SA-08 in Max 5 camo for the coming fowl season, looking forward to shooting it.
My boys are avid fowl hunters and talked me into a semi-auto so I went with the SA-08. I have always been a pump guy but they claim after shooting a semi I will sell my pump guns......

Ammo / Remington HyperSonic Ultra Core Lokt Review
« on: September 13, 2017, 09:40:28 AM »
A few months back I started to do some research for some good black bear ammo for my 300 Win Mag and came across the fairly new Remington Hypersonic Ultra Core Lokt. After reading reviews and ballistics I decided to get them a try at the range.
My Savage Model 114 loved them so they made the trip to bear camp this past week where I was fortunate to harvest a 300 + lb black bear. I am pleased to report the bullet did exactly what I wanted, complete pass through with about a 2" exit hole with very little meat damage. Wish I could have recovered the bullet but by the looks of the carcass after skinning the bullet showed great expansion and wound trauma with no signs of core separation.
I am sold and would highly recommend them to those who are on the fence.
