    Bison Hunting

    I just want to eat a buffalo. If I have to shoot it with a .58 plains rifle, so much the better. Anyone that knows of ranches offering a good deal on a fat cow, feel free to list it here. A traditional muzzleloader forum ought to have a "go to" bison thread.

    Kibler Hawken?

    What did you do today

    Good thread :thumb: It was a real busy day here, I made up 15lbs of elk jerky for a friend that's done a couple of good favors for me recently. Then I did some research on which pipe tobacco has good flavor, and good nicotine levels. You never know when that knowledge might come in handy.
