One reason is because we can hunt and kill cougars and control their populations but the wolves are getting out of control in the rockies and all we can do is to sit back and beg the feds to do something while our elk & moose herds are suffering and dissappearing in certain parts of WY, West Yellowstone, MT & Northern Idaho. We need something to be done now, before its to late. Government red tape is taking way to long.
It has taken us 100 years of good wildlife management to build our herds up but only one decade to see the wolves and grizzlies put a serious hurt on them.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
