    I think the gun is made in the USA by Tony Galazan/CSMC. This is the same outfit that makes the RBL. In fact I think the gun pretty much is an RBL. I think Savage's O/Us are Turkish. That doesn't...

    After running the regular sized collar for the season I agree. There certainly isn't enough difference to justify switching it out.

    That's surprising. We used to own some ground just east of Madison and we'd see them once in a while on the roads. Over time we learned that a different landowner nearby was releasing them.

    My season is the perfect example of the definition of insanity. I keep hunting the same general area and, in some cases, the same spots, and keep getting the same poor results.

    Does this mean that rental rates will float up and down over the course of a CRP contract or will it be fixed when the contract is signed?

    Regardless, the increase is good news.

    Definitely not better than last year, maybe worse. At least in the areas I hunt.
