Some of these comments are white noise.

People are worried about this and worried about that. Will there be enough Rangers? As if that isn't a concern for pretty much every other area of the...

I've seen black bears charge at people and chase them away from their campsite to steal their food (that particular fellow was obviously experienced with such tactics) and I've seen black bears that...

1) This land isn't "untouched." It is former logging land with roads and trails all over the place. There are plenty of remote ADK lands (both wilderness and wild forest) with very little of either....

I'm not disappointed either Buckladd.

Preserving the "wild" needs to be balanced with access to the "wild." I think the current proposal allows for decent, common-sense access not just to Boreas...

I don't deem someone "crazy" for thinking that cougar have passed through NY, at one point or another.

However, there does seem to be a sizable, and vocal, contingent which believes that cougar...

Yes perhaps, but here's the thing which I can't come to terms with: when the Florida panther was literally on the verge of extinction in the Everglades (I think around the 1950's-1960's), people were...

Lol...it wouldn't be a mountain lion thread without someone introducing that play-on-words. Even on the hunting forums, people make that same joke.

And to be fair, the ADK's isn't really ideal...

Where is this "good predator habitat" outside of the ADK's? Tug Hill perhaps, but that puts any apex predator in close proximity to farming country, which they generally don't do well in. I'd also...

I don't thing there is anything wrong with striving towards a "healthy environment." We've certainly made a lot of progress in that regard.

A robust environment is a different story. You either...

Iím stating my opinion when it comes to recoil, as are you. Iíve dealt with big recoil in other firearms before. Some of those cartridges offer superior ballistics over the cartridges I regularly...

Hunting/Tracking Sidearm

10mm is a bigger caliber, but it also has a lower sectional density, lower velocity and energy.

To some degree, size does matter. But I think 10mm and .357 are close enough that the magnumís...

John thanks for the comments.

John, looking at the energy delivered by both cartridges, 10mm seems to peak at the high 600ís lb ft. I see there is a 135gr that delivers north of 750 lb ft, but thatís a controlled expansion...

Apologies. You recommended a 10mm, but my point still stands: .357ís terminal ballistics easily match or outright exceed those of 10mm. Why do you consider .357 underpowered?

Eagle, I totally agree that a rifle and/or shotgun is far superior to a pistol when it comes to taking big game. However, for those situations where I require the extra mobility and there is a high...

And I would rather see that the government, and opinionated citizens, not be able to dictate who can and can't tree-stand hunt. There really is just no need for it.

MGC, I really don't care what the stats are regarding tree stand falls. It's an individual safety issue and it's not something the government should have a heavy hand in regulating.
