Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Bagley ranch hunt
« on: Yesterday at 05:58:26 PM »

Jody Bagley moved from western Wyoming in the Star valley over to the east side. I have become acquainted with him from the Ranchers.net forum. He posted this on Ranchers and I thought you guy might enjoy/

Notice what's missing?

Somebody's got time to monitor this site but not keep us imformed\

 I didn't see what he said that caused him to be gone , but I hate to see him gone.

I enjoyed the banter and his stories as well and his knowledge on many subjects. He may have had a differing opinion on some things but that's what made this site interesting for me. :)

My computer crashed last week but I was able to get back on here which I was thankful for as I really enjoy this site and it's community. I was not able to get back on ranchers.net where I have been a member since before 2003. My email has changed, I can't seem to remember the right pass word and for some reason I can't register under a new name. Sucks as I had made a lot of friends on that site, many of us have even visited in person. Oh well. life goes on but change isn't always pleasant.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Baylee's wish list
« on: December 04, 2018, 07:16:13 PM »
My 3 yr old Grand daughter Baylee has become enamored with hunting. She loves spending time with her Dad and he has been hunting so Baylee figures she should be shooting Buck as well. She was out in the shop watching cartoon while Dad skinned his buck.
 She told her Mother what she wanted for Christmas:
1, Binoculars
2, Rifle  (which Grandpa bought her but has to wait a few years to get)
3, Hunting jacket
4, Deer Jerky

I think we can get her covered pretty well :)
Hope she still wants to hunt when she's 16

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Border patrol
« on: November 27, 2018, 08:35:01 PM »
These three deer were taken by hunters staying here but not right on the ranch. All three were taken close to the USA/ Canada border and the 2 on the right walked across the border into a unharvested Lentil field and the "Border Patrol" got them. ;D

The field was right between land owned by my son and I but the Lentils were hailed so the combine couldn't pick them up but the deer sure could. The 3 hunters said they had never experienced anything like it, they were literally surrounded by 50 deer with some walking up to 15 yards from them.
 The forked buck on the left was taken by a 16 yr old that also got a moose off the ranch this fall.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / The Moral of the Porcupine

Fable of the Porcupine

It was the coldest winter ever.  Many animals died because of the cold.

The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm. This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.

After a while, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen.  So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their Companions or disappear from the Earth.

Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close Relationship with their companions to receive the heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.

The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when everyone learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person's good qualities.
The moral of the story

Just learn to live with the Pricks in your life!

I was checking out the Weatherby apparel selection and they have nothing that will fit 3 yr old Baylee. How is a proud Weatherby owner supposed to show off her pride if they make nothing to fit. >:(

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Secret to a long life
« on: November 20, 2018, 06:13:48 PM »
 A cowboy told his grandson the secret to a long life. He said, "You gotta sprinkle a little gunpowder on your oatmeal, see. If you do, you'll live to a nice ripe old age.' So the cowboy did this religiously every day, and sure enough, lived to the nice ripe old age of 96. When he died he left behind 4 children, 8 grandchildren, 15 great-grand- children ...and a 16 foot hole in the wall of the crematorium.'

This is the rifle I bought and have promised to my Grand daughter when she passes her hunter safety course.

I get a little time with it as she is only three. :)

Her dad showed a picture of the rifle Grandpa bought for her and she said "Lets go shoot bucks"  Dad's been hunting :) and her brother has been going along and what ever Colt does Baylee want to do as well.

It's a Vanguard Volt .243 with a Vortex Viper 6.5x20 44mil scope. Haven't shot it yet but the scope is sure nice and gathers light pretty good at lower power.

Decisions, Decisions, I was going to trade my Winchester Model 70 Featherweight .270 on  a Vanguard Wilderness in 270 but it was sold before I could get back to the gun shop. I know my buddy and some on here said to keep the Winchester so I decided I would keep it and give it to my Grandson when he comes of age as his Dad shoots the same rifle in 300 win mag.
 So I was keeping the Winchester but I saw a Browning BLR 243 used at the gun shop. Well that could do double duty as a deer rifle and a Varmit truck gun, swung by the gun shop on the way home from the dentist the other day, Dang the BLR was sold. I was coming down with a cold and was tired so I didn't look at anything while there. When I got home I was checking out what a couple other gun shops had on hand, nothing really interested until I saw a Ruger compact. Then it came to me, the place where I like to support had a Weatherby Vanguard Volt 243 Youth, it said on the listing.  It's a Vanguard synthetic compact that has the shims to change LOP but the Volt is Black and Green web stock. Well now I have a rifle for my Grand daughter when she comes of age.
 My buddy suggested a Vortex Viper 6.5x20 44mil, they were on sale for $469 so that's waiting for to get back up to pick them up, can't wait.
