  2. P-38'S, JAPANESE ZEROS, AND TRENCH ART: It must have been one heck of a sight to have witnessed aerial combat between a P-38 and a Japanese Zero. My Dad, a US Army soldier on Bougainville in late 1943, said he witnessed such a dog fight directly overhead After the Zero had been shot down, he and his fox hole buddy went over to the crash site to see what was left, and to look for souvenirs. He obtained an aluminum piece of the aircraft and gradually beat it into a ring with a spoon. When his unit got to Australia, he and his buddy attended a dance at a club, and his friend got into a fight wit

  10. I finished my load testing and settled on this; 30-06 Lapua cases with Federal Match primers. 55.5 gr of IMR4350 behind a Sierra 165 SPBT bullet. The cases are neck sized and the bullet is seated at .010 behind the rifling. I use a Lee crimp die on each round and just kiss the neck to insure even neck tension on the bullet. This also keeps the rounds in the magazine from getting longer after a shot. They have a velocity of 2750-2780 at the muzzle with most coming in right at 2760 fps. The velocity decay indicates that I will have enough energy to make the bullet perform

  11. Boulder dash scores some loaded chunky specimens off the new patch. Thanks to the Gold Monster 1000 , I scored one nice piece as well. Unfortunately, this hillside patch is loaded with hot rocks, which can make for tough hunting with a PI. Patience and perseverance is key. Hard to tell but , my piece is peppered with gold.

  17. Javelina's have been maligned and called names such a stink pigs or skunk pigs, and generally have gotten an undeserved bad reputation for being unfit to eat by hunters who didn't know how or didn't take the time to prepare the meat properly. Javelina have a scent gland at the base of their rump which gives off a strong musky odor. When you field dress a Javelina you need to avoid the musk gland because you can end up tainting the meat. Done properly, the meat tastes good, but requires extra care in preparation. Some years ago, I went on a horseback Javelina hunt near Hatchita, in the Bo

  18. Paying It Forward: In 2004, while nugget hunting on a Weaver claim near Stanton, AZ, I met a Polish gentleman from New York who was a Gem dealer/vendor and had been attending the Gem and Mineral show in Tucson. He was using a Garret Ace 250 coin machine to search for gold and was frustrated with his detector. He came up to me and, (in broken English), politely asked what he was doing wrong, since all he could hear was static and popping sounds in his earphones. I said, "Welcome to the Bradshaw's" and gave him a brief explanation about mineralization in the soil, ground noise etc. I put away

  19. Javelina is just awesome. One of my favorite meats for sure. It is just fatless pork. I do a pit BBQ out of javelina that is better than brisket. No BS buddy. Tender, juicy and absolutely mild.

  20. RAINBOWS AND BROWNIES: Hi LipCa, I think he's ignoring you, but never mind that, I was wondering if the fires up on the Calif/Ore border was still going strong and if it's affected the fishing in the Lake McCloud area? I used to trout fish in Lake McCloud back in the mid '90's, and in the '70's I hunted deerin Modoc Co, and East of there, all the way over to Alturas, Warner Wilderness, and Ravendale in the early '70's. Beautiful country.

  22. Huh? What 'iron nuggets" are you able to find with a VLF in the washes? I agree that lots of iron minerals in the sand and coarse magnetite, hematite and other forms of iron are a great gold indicator but I have found few of these with a VLF in my 35 years of beeping. Once in a blue moon a shiny little magnetite chunk will give a positive signal. Black sand and iron minerals generally "null" a VLF. If you are finding "iron nuggets" you have your machine balanced incorrectly or you are digging tramp metal. I always slow down and work the hillsides whenever I find a bit of gold in the

  24. Bob, I found a 70 grain round point for my 22-250 that is killer on these Nv mulies. I load it with IMR3031 powder and talk about a flat shooting heavy hitter. I reload 100 grain noslers for my wifes and daughters .243 with 3031 also. Great deer load. My son shoots a .308 and we reload him with 165 grain noslers. Does a number on deer and his cow elk last year. He has a bull tag this October we cant wait for. I have found that Barns muzzleloader bullets are unstoppable for deer and elk and are well worth the extra few bucks. Great thread bud. Here is my daughters first dee
