The Roxor is interesting. I found this review on it. https://jalopnik.com/heres-how-the-mahindra-roxor-compares-to-a-1948-willys-1826771078
You gotta love those older military Willys jeeps.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Re: Euro Mount Boar

Thats was a good boar for a European mount. I wonder why the taxidermist couldn't repair the broken tusks? This is the boar that you shot on video that you said, "I didn't miss this time", right?

Great shooting Roger. Were you using hand loads or factory ammo, and which bullet(brand) and what weight grain did you use? For me to make a shot like that, I'd need the Hubble Space Telescope mounted on my rifle :)

I'm looking to buy a new gun for coyote, but what caliber .223, .243, .22-250, .257, who knows whats the best, I am sure nobody does, but some suggestions would be great!  This gun will be mainly used for coyote, rock chucks,  and maybe some thin skinned big game.  Thanks in advance.
Fast forward 10 years and the Vanguard First Lite is a winner. 26" barrel(with Accubrake), #2 contour with fluted barrel, fusion camo pattern for the stock, and Cerakote barrel finish, in 240, or 257 Wby.

The 240 Wby mag would be my choice.

How about pictures of the Weatherby end cap?

We value your questions and comments, so please take a minute to send an e-mail and one of our TOMCARŽ representatives will get back to you promptly.  Maybe?

Congrats JK, and good luck on tagging that 180 class mullie.

   Thinking about getting a side by side maybe this next year, Norma and I took a test drive on the new Yamaha 6 seat Viking sure like it.  Not fast like the  various sport models.  I don't need to go fast ,  smooth is good.

Zonie, I'll agree with you about smooth is good and not needing the speed. Seems to me that a lot of the hunting commercials over emphasize going fast on the back roads almost encouraging young adults to use the ATV's as a motocross vehicles. You need some speed, and some roads are speed worthy, but you want to get home safely too. BTW, I envy the fact there your able to get out in the countryside and be able to see that variety of animals close to home.

The 130 gr. SP's have been solid cup and core performers as far back as the J. O'Connor days, but premium bullets are winning the race these days. The ammo you eventually end up using will largely depend on what your rifle likes best, and which one you feel like gives you an edge. Kind of a campfire discussion) SP write up:
Weatherby G270130SR Norma 270 Weatherby Magnum Spitzer 130 GR 20Rds
 Weatherby proudly loads the Norma Spitzer. The Spitzer bullets are made by Norma of Sweden a company renowned for the high quality of its products. With 60 percent weight retention, the bullets are suited to a wide range of hunting applications.(May be Norma USA now, not sure)

Those Tomcars are quite the rigs. :)
A Hovercraft specifically for hunting probably not far down the road. Hovercrafts are used in so many recreational applications now its amazing. Some are used to traverse rivers to get to remote hunting areas.

Great group of mounts Brett, a good taxidermist is invaluable. How long before you get your Longhorn bull back from the taxidermist?

At least now you can rule out Chupacabras starting to go north for the summer. However, if you happen to see a hairless beastly looking coyote with a hunch back, fangs that make its jaw drop, making screeching horrific sounds, kinda dragging one leg, and occasionally standing upright to look around, you might wanna call the game warden, and a doctor if it sees you.

 Ken Barr is the CEO of Adobe Creek Packing co. located in Ca. They grow and pack pears for sale to companies like WalMart and other large chain stores. Annual sales are $50-$100 Million a year. Adobe Creek Packing is a privately held corporation. Since they are located in Ca. I guess that is why there are grape vines planted around the building.
The first link is from 2016 Weatherby Award Ceremony.

The second link is the trophy room/gun collection (scroll down on pictures)

If you haven't had enough, in this short link there are some more interesting details about Fuch's double barrel rifles and the actual cost.

Congrats. You certainly can't argue with results like that.
