Re: Thoughts on Tikka T3 Lite

5pointbull, I got the same kind of deal on a 7mm Mag at my local pawn shop. It also has the VX3 scope and I love the gun and scope. I was going to buy a $3500 custom rifle and then decided that was probably a bad financial decision. I would recommend the T3 to anyone that doesn't want to break the b...

Re: New to Mule deer hunting

I have hunted Colorado several times and I agree with M.Bird. I love the late season because you can hunt all day long and can expect to see muleys at any time. I have never elk hunted, but I would really like to do it in Colorado. Based on your post I will be checking into unit 54. Good luck with y...

Re: What brand rifle?

I bought a Tikka T3 in 7 mm Mag with a Leopold Vari-X III last year and I love it. I shot a mule deer in Wyoming at 160 yards with it. I was very impressed with the consistent groups I shot with it at 100, 200, and 300 yards at the range. There are prettier and more famous name brands out there, but...

Re: Help choosing a state to hunt mule deer.

I'm from California, but didn't want to say that in my original post because I know a lot of people really dislike hunters from California. I will be moving out of California in a few years, but my job is keeping me hear for now. I don't want to be lumped in with the California stereotype. I guess I...

Re: WHATS YOUR 2015 HUNTING PLANS

Well, I'm planning to go out of state (I live in California). I hope to go to either Wyoming, Colorado, or Utah, but my buddy and I haven't decided where to apply yet. We would like to go to Utah because it is a much shorter drive, but we have no info on it. We heard it gets really crowded. Do you k...

Help choosing a state to hunt mule deer.

I'm in the beginning stages of planning a mule deer hunt for my buddy, his daughter, and me. It will be her first big hunting trip, so we want to make it a good one. We hear Utah gets really crowded. Can anyone give their opinion on that? My buddy and I have been to Colorado, but it has been 20+ yea...

Re: What handheld GPS do you guys recommend?

My wife bought me the 62s last year and it's awesome. You can find them on sale pretty often. My buddy used his in Wyoming and it saved us from almost going onto private land by mistake. The map chips you can get for them are really worth the $99.

Re: MuleyMadness Roll Call

Oh, I forgot to mention I started bow hunting two years ago and shot my first buck with my bow last season (2014). What a feeling, and more meat in the freezer!
