Does the cost of wild game meat pencil out? - posted 1 year ago

Excellent article and very thought-provoking. I consider costs when I go hunting and, as a result, don't participate in hunts where I deem the tag to be cost-prohibitive. Additionally, I use my equipment until it no longer functions (my bow is a 2010 model) but still consider my equipment's depreciated value when I determine how much the meat actually cost my family. I love hunting and shooting my bow but I am still mindful of how much an item costs and generally refrain from purchasing top shelf products, when I can see from historical data that cheaper and less-advanced items will do the job just as well.

Utah bowhunter attacked by mountain lion - posted 1 year ago

I don't think they should kill the mountain lion when it is behaving like a mountain lion up in the mountains. Now, when the mountain lion heads to town and starts to act like a mountain lion, then it should be killed. When humans are in the woods, they should take precautions so they don't end up being metabolized by a wolf, mountain lion, or bear. It is a risk we take and the not the mountain lion's fault.

Excellent and informative article. Thank you for detailing your rationale behind your meal plan and preparation method.

My name is Brady Miller and I have severe target panic - posted 1 year ago

I had target panic from 1994 to this summer. I finally bought a hydraulic release that fires after a period of time at full draw. I practiced with it for a full month without shooting any other release style and can now place my pin wherever I want on the target with any release type, even releases with crappy triggers. Consider the hydraulic type - you cannot manipulate it to fire on command. Good luck.

By the way, I have clicked on your articles regarding your packing list and cook-less method of eating dozens of times.
