We live in Nevada where you put in for tags and pray you get picked.  It is great since it makes sure that we don't over harvest, but sucks for tho...

Backpacking: How to Pack Your Bag

Backpacking:  How to Pack Your Bag

Ever go on a backpacking trip and you have to play Tetris to get everything in?  The gear you take is limited so you have to be selective of what you should take.  At the same time you are limited on space so everything you are taking has to fit.  What is a person to do?
Take Your Tent Out of the Carry Case
The tent comes in a little carry case that you can pack in your bag. This keeps all the...

Backpacking: The Essentials

Backpacking: The Essentials

Going on a backpacking trip can be a lot of fun.  You want to make sure that you have all your gear before you leave.  The last thing you want is to be out in the wilderness and leave your food at home or even your tent poles.

Packing your pack can be just a crucial. You don't want to pack your tent at the bottom of your pack. Pulling out all your gear just to get to your tent can be frustrating....

Historic Railroad Trail Hike

In the Las Vegas valley there are tons of places to go hiking.  A great hike to take the family on is the Historic Railroad Trail. The trail is roughly 3.7 miles and great for families with kids. Along the trail there are a few historic markets that can give you information on the trail and Hoover Dam. For anyone that enjoys historic monuments and land marks or a leisure hike (more of a walk) this...

Tags for emergency hunt in Northern Nevada

So we didn't draw any tags for an emergency hunt in Northern Nevada.  I wasn't too heart broken about it, but I did have to break the news to my husband.  He wasn't too happy and said there was a mistake.  I am sure he will be crying in the garage later about this.  For anyone that was waiting on the results you can go to the Hunt Nevadasite. The results were just posted. Good luck to everyone...

Burris Eliminator III Laserscope

Burris Eliminator III Laserscope

When you need a scope and a range finder but don't want to buy both, Burris Eliminator III is a great option for both. This rifle scope doesn't require any rings, it mounts directly to the mount on your rifle similar to a tactical scope. It is great since you don't have to buy additional hardware just to mount it to your rifle. You also don't have to worry account ring mounts no holding your scope...

Redfield Rampage Spotting Scope 20-60x80 Review

Redfield Rampage Spotting Scope 20-60x80 Review

The Redfield Rampage is a great spotting scope to have handing when out hunting or target shooting. Recently we went to the range to sight in my husbands 300 Win Mag at 100 yards. It took us a little bit to do since he was taking it down from 900 yards. Once we got everything dialed we started to zero in his scope. We took two spotting scopes with us, the department store special and the Redfield...

Hunting: The Step by Step Guide to Prepare for a Hunt

We have very little time as it is, but preparing for a hunt makes it even tougher.  We just put a new Leupold scope on my rifle and of course we have to sight it in.  I am not a fan of the specific scope we are using, I would rather have the Burris Eliminator.  I am a techie person so I prefer to have something that I am familiar with.

On top of this we have to figure out which round to use for...

Hunting: Why Do We Need Hunting?

Hunting:  Why Do We Need Hunting?

Those that hunt have heard at least once that hunting is cruel, why can't you go to the grocery store like everyone else, etc... Well lets face it. The meat at the grocery store was once a living animal. They didn't just grow the meat in a lab, I wouldn't doubt this is where we are headed. The cows, chickens and pigs lived on a farm. They were bred to be killed so you can eat it. They were kept in...

Conceal carry: Men vs Women

Conceal carry: Men vs Women

Both my husband and I carry and we have very different perceptions about carrying firearms.  I carry to protect myself and my kids.  He carries to keep the government in line.  Every time he tells someone this I just roll my eyes and start doing something else.  He goes into a 30 minutes discussion sometimes.

I have a few friends the carry firearms both male and female. These are just things that...

What it's like being the only person in your group of friends with a pickup truck

When it comes to vehicles I am a little partial to pick-up trucks.  I have owned a few of them and I prefer them to cars.  While cars get great gas mileage you are just limited in what you can do.  You can't do much off roading, the slightest bump can bottom you out and you can't put a dead deer in your car.  Well you can do the last one but I wouldn't recommend it.
