I too live in Idaho and the re-introduction of wolves has devastated the local deer & elk herds. My favorite hunting place is a dead-zone now; no deer or elk, none, and not even little ground cri ...

No, Idaho is not a good idea. No game, everywhere desert, too many hunters, all no trespass, 4 wheeler crazies.

Jason: I hate to rain on your fire parade, but the use of charcloth by the 1800's western fur trappers cannot be documented. However, the use of charred wood, charred punk and tinder fungus is docume ...

Finding a decent rifle in that price range will be tough. I would suggest joining your local black powder club, go to a few shoots and put the word out with the guys what you are looking for. Someon ...

I agree with CaptC. Your .45 rb would be plenty with proper shot placement and perhaps more powder. I use 70 gr of FFF in my .45 and have shot 2 whitetail deer with it. No problems and no losses.

Correct, don't rely on a cellphone for emergencies. Take your 2 meter handheld ham radio. They will always get out to a repeater for calling for help. They are the most reliable communication avail ...

Always carry a water filter or a water pump. All ground water is contaminated with giardia, even up up in the mountains here in Idaho. Water filters are accepted at most historical events. Giadia i ...

Opie: Now that you have already applied the linseed oil, I would suggest trying to use a stain that will penetrate through the linseed oil. I would try a dark leather dye, alcohol based, which you ca ...

I agree with Dave Schmid. I too come to this forum to get away from modern day politics and to find solace and relief from the ills of modern society.
