I was not believer but often heard hikers rave about Wrangler. I almost pulled the trigger on a Sitka Ascent pant but at $189 I was not thrilled. I ended up trying the Wrangler Outdoor Flex Pant and...

What's the protocol for those who adopt a lean-to? I just assumed it was visited by that person every month, or so, to be sure it was being well maintained.

I'd suggest taking a look at Seek Outside backpacks. They're lighter than Mystery Ranch and many people prefer the comfort to Kirafu, EXO, MR, and others. It's made in Colorado.

No adult human has ever been killed by a wild black bear in NYS since they've been recording attacks. I'd call those odds small.

I've switched over to the dark side and now use a quilt from Enlightened Equipment. I'll never go back to a bag.

Two recommendations I'd make if getting an EE quilt. Get the XL and XW whether...

Congratulations, that's a serious camera. You're pictures are awesome to begin with so I can only imagine what you'll be showing us once you have the D7200 dialed in.

I almost stepped on a timber rattler last year on Tongue Mtn. Came within one step (2') before it rattled. I wasn't happy because I got much closer than I expected. Had I been distracted by a jet,...

I don't have a dog in this fight but I would encourage you to actually shoot all of these calibers in both revolver and semi-automatic platforms, if available ( 454 Casull is not). Only then can you...

You're a bit presumptuous thinking that you will have two or even three shots. IMO, you'd be better served planning for only one and be thankful you had a second.

Where on earth did you come up...

The ballistics are similar but I would argue the terminal ballistics weigh in favor of the 10mm. The .357 bullet has a diameter .358 bullet while the 10mm is .400. The 10mm punches a bigger hole...

I never suggested a 45acp over a 357 magnum. Neither would be my solution for a woods gun. I think both are underpowered.

I would feel a tad underpowered with the 357 magnum.

An excellent woods gun is 10mm semi such as a Glock 40MOS (long slide) or Glock 20. I have the former and you can load it with 220gr flat-nose,...

The solution is always more financial burden on the average Joe. How about renegotiating the lucrative benefits packages of the rangers?
