I don’t have time. I’ve got to go to work tomorrow. How am I going to get this elk in the freezer. I don’t want to lose any of it. It’s happened to all of us. Even John and I. Even though we work at home. Several years ago we took an elk and two […]

It’s that time of year when the best-organized freezers get a bit disheveled. That’s what’s happening at our house at least. Way back in August, while dying of the heat and praying for rain, we started some Beach Boys music on the CD player, turned it up loud and did the big clean up and […]
John Barsness’s Take on Simple Reduced Rifle Loads While I cast bullets for several rifles and handguns, I usually try to keep the process as simple as possible, on the theory that less time spent casting and loading means more time for shooting. One example occurred during The Great Obama Rimfire Shortage, which began shortly […]
We all know what it looks like. There’s even a rural legend about it: a freshly killed deer loaded into the trunk of a car that turns into a block of stone on the way home. And is impossible to unload—until it ‘softens up’ again in a couple of days. It’s called rigor mortis. From […]
Why bother making your own spice mix? Here’s just a few reasons why they’re perfect: They’re cheaper. They’re always available. But if one element isn’t in stock at your local grocery store, you can always improvise and still have that basic spice mix. Maybe even a better one than the original. They’re infinitely adaptable. (See […]
There was a recent article in CNet: 5 Common Slow Cooker Mistakes. But they left out the two most important. So what did CNet say, who is CNet and why is CNet, talking about cooking for Pete’s sake? CNet, short for ‘Computer Network,’ mainly writes about and reviews electronic devices. I get a […]
From Chapter 45 of Gun Gack 2 My latest 6.5 Creedmoor is a Ruger American Predator purchased for the vast sum of $350. Right out of the box it turned out to be as accurate as any 6.5mm rifle I’ve ever owned, including several custom rifles. Is this due to chance? I doubt it, since […]
From Q&A section of GG3: I’m loading for a Remington 700 youth model in .243 Winchester with a 20-inch barrel, with the 85-grain Barnes TSX and a 90-grain Nosler AccuBond. I have Hodgdon H4350, Alliant Reloder 22, and Alliant Reloder 15 on hand. Which would be the best powder? Would the faster RL-15 be better […]
I just bought a new-to-me ULA in .243 WSSM, that belonged to our friend Tommy McIntyre. It was built on Melvin Forbe’s Model 28 action, which is usually used for longer mag cartridges, like the 7mm Rem Mag but, because this cartridge is so short, Melvin shortened the action, so it’s even shorter than […]
How to fix the flavor of game birds and make them more moist as well. I’m not very fond of sage and sharp-tailed grouse—for eating. There are always the exceptions however. My husband John and I once lucked into a large covey of sharp-tails gorging themselves on buffalo berries. And by the copious deep red-purple […]
