ADK, should you ever go on another outfitted hunt anywhere, ask the outfitter ahead of time to save some fat. I usually end up with a pile of the stuff every fall.
Good advice There Sawbill!
Guy that I was in camp with shot a bear the first night and it was nothing but fat. So I figgured if I got one it would be the same, oh well. They just tossed all his fat out and I did not ask for it.
Your season is starting to wrap up is'nt it? How was your hunters success?
Seen a monster today but my area is'nt offering a secong tag so he's gonna be there for next year. He was a little close to town so maybe not the MNR has been around alot lately. I think 25 bears in the last 2 weeks have been trapped in my town lots of cubs and sows but a couple monsters. Lots of dog bear confontations lately. People wont even walk at night.
And the MNR still wont budge on the spring bear hunt.
Anyone who shoots a sabot bullet has had the problem with loading the next round with a dirty barrel we have all struggled with it.
Between muzzleloader shots I have done some research and testing on my own to find out what works for me for the next shot. I have been using a product called bore butter and when the muzzleloader is just sitting around I leave it caked in the barrel for protection. Have also found that if I lube my sabots with bore butter they really slide nicely down the barrel....
