    Hey you guys, you know what I dont see on here that often???? Pictures of Guns and the trophy as well so here I will contribute....
    Here's a Rem. Mdl 7 in 6mm with custom buffalo sticks ;). The 15lb in the stones means both groundhogs weighed 15lbs.

    Seeing those groundhogs posed in that fashion reminds me of the world's most viscious animal, the armadillo. I see a lot of them along highways like that, just waiting to grab a car.

    What sort of distances were you shooting?

    Wasnt Far

    Well the distances werent far but the one I shot 150yrds and the other 100yrds.. You have any good Gun/Game pictures Art or anyone else, Id like to see a few :) . I'm hoping to get some more good old groundhogs this summer.. One of our local gun stores run a contest who can get the biggest/smallest groundhog, which they give prizes away and such. The turn out is very good the way I hear. I think I'm going to sign up for the contest this year ;) especially since I got my Rem 700vls 22-250.

    That is an awful skinny bobcat you got there or had you all ready skinned it and you're just showing off the pelt.

    Wow Mitch, I would never have thought that the revolver in the second picture would have accepted that magazine. Must have to cram those rounds in pretty tight. ;) :D

    Not me, my wife.

    9 pointer shot with her Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter. Something like 15 yards. First deer ever.

    Here is a little peice of history. This is a picture of me and my father circa 1984. The critter is not just a Siberiean Ibex but the new world record Siberian Ibex.

    Unfortunatley he was not taken in Siberia. So the record only counts as an exotic animal. This is one of the Ibex that the state of NM let lose back in the early 70's in the canadian river gorge in north eastern NM. So while he had been wild all of his life on public land he was not a native species. It was a cool huint non-the less in serious steep hard canyon country.

    And one I'll always treasure:)

    Hello.

    This Texas whitetail doe was cleanly taken with a warmish 9mm handload using this STI Trojan Long Slide at about 40 yards.
    [​IMG]

    Got another with a Dan Wesson Patriot in .45 ACP using a handloaded round.

    This customized SMLE was used to collect another...

    PDshooter, that dog's a lot lighter-colored than what I'm used to seeing. SW Texas, ours are much more red-orange-brown...

    Keith, do those critters have those long legs for faster digging? Do they eat earthworms? :D (I'll bet those long-legged critters taste better than 'dillers.)

    Art,

    Alaskan 'dillers are tough critters! In this instance, we had cached some salted cod in two metal cages and then dropped them in 50 fathoms of water to keep the 'dillers off... Hell, we went back the next day and found they'd actually dove down there and eaten every bit of our cod! They then jumped out on the deck expecting a ride back to shore and we were so intimidated we went along with it...

    :D

    Keith, I was rading somehere, some years back, that the king crab fishery had been over-harvested, and that's the reason for the snow crabs being seen more in restaurants. Izziss true?

    That's a complicated question, Art.

    King crabs used to be found in the Bering Sea AND along the North Pacific side of the Aleutians and down the coast as far as Juneau. That North Pacific fishery died out. That used to be blamed on over-harvesting, but lately they've come to the conclusion that it was a change in the temperature of the sea water. For some reason the temperature rose several degrees in the late 1960's. The King Crab numbers went down and the number of Bairdi Crabs rose - those are Bairdi Crabs in the picture above. The North Pacific King Crab fishery collapsed.

    In the last few years, the water temperature in this part of the Pacific has begun to fall again and King Crab numbers are beginning to increase. No doubt, Bairdi numbers will soon start to fall. Maybe in ten years there will be another great North Pacific King Crab fishery like existed in the past?

    In the meantime, the King Crab fishery in the Bering has remained pretty constant. It's pretty tightly regulated and policed, at least inside the US economic Zone.

    The reason you see these "Snow Crabs" is just good marketing. These are known as Opilio crabs to fisherman and there used to be no market for them because... well, compare them to a King Crab!
    Somebody dreamed up the name "Alaskan Snow Crab" and suddenly everyone wanted them...go figure!

    These Bairdi Crabs are nearly as meaty as the Kings and there are zillions of them along two thousand miles of the Alaskan Pacific Coast from SE all the way out to the tip of the Aleutians, but there's no big market. Nobody even knows what a Bairdi Crab is.

    Art,

    Sorry for the book... fishing drives the economy here.

    By the way, that pile of crabs was from just two pots which were in the water only 24 hours. And that just off town here where everyone has a pot or two in the water. Think of all them crabs along thousands of miles of unihabited coast, just going to waste!

    Wisconsin don't make enough butter!

    Keith
