    Help me understand (6.5 Creedmoor)

    I have a 6.5 creedmoor in Left hand Ruger American Predator. Put a Boyd’s AT-one stock in it. Polished the bolt, pillar bedded the stock and action. Shoots dime sized groups better than my tikka and savages. 6.5 cm is easy to shoot no recoil, very efficient caliber. Should take deer out to 400yds.

    Salmon Seasons announced!

    I was thinking the same thing! Sometimes our biologist and managers get it wrong. And the fish show up in large unexpected numbers. I hope they are wrong and there is some quota to have some kind of coho fishery.

    Area 7 going to one fish limit

    I thought the Canadians only clipped like 1% of their hatchery chinook? If they tag the nose then they will clip it. So that statement about Canadian fish being taken does not make cents to me since we are catching only clipped chinook the Anacortes derby

    scotty braid or power pro

    The 250 scotty is really tough but there is a lot of drag. I have had it on one side of the boat for 4years and it still is in decent shape. 175 scotty I just replaced this year with 200 powerpro which is cheaper and seems to have the same drag as the 175 scotty. Buy the powerpro its good shit!

    Nice work! Were they caught on a cut plug? I'm so jealous I hate working when the weather is perfect for fishing. I'm off for a couple weeks I hope to see you out there. Too bad the marine forecast went to shit. My luck!
