This Thing Called Eye Relief
By Ralph M. Lermayer

Perhaps no part of a riflescope’s specifications is less understood than eye relief. Many hunters don’t have a clue what their pet scope’s eye relief is, nor do they care. As long as they can bring Ol’ Betsy to the shoulder and instantly find hair in the scope, it’s perfect.

Eye relief is the distance from the rear lens your eye requires to see a full picture. The industry average for a fixed-power scope is about 3 1/2 inches. For most variables, you’ll start out about there at the lower power, and about 2 1/2 inches when you crank up to to max magnifcation. The lower number is often hidden on the spec sheets of variable scopes, with only the easy-to-live-with, higher number listed. Others provide both numbers so you know what to expect when the scope is cranked up to the highest power.

Ruger Hawkeye Alaskan Bolt-Action Rifle Review:

By Layne Simpson
The Model 77 Hawkeye Compact Magnum introduced in 2008 was the beginning of a popular trend at Ruger. Its 20-inch barrel was chambered to .300 Ruger and .338 Ruger. Walnut and blued steel or synthetic and stainless steel were other options. During the next year the Compact Magnum was joined by the Alaskan in .375 Ruger, also with a 20-inch barrel. Barreled action choices were stainless steel with either a natural matte finish or with a tough black coating. It also had a Hogue synthetic stock. The Alaskan was replaced by the Guide Gun in 2013.

The Guide Gun was the first snub-nosed Hawkeye I shot, and it is easily recognized from a distance by a colorful Green Mountain laminate stock. I took one in .375 Ruger to Alaska for grizzly and could not have chosen a better rifle for the game and the conditions. Still in production, the Guide Gun is available in .30-06, .300 Win. Mag., .338 Win. Mag., .416 Ruger and .375 Ruger, the latter in right- and left-hand actions.

Losing The Right To Hunt ......
by Toby bridges


We're closer to losing all opportunities to hunt than many of you may realize. There are many people ... anti-hunting organizations ... and state, federal and global agencies which are hell bent to eliminate hunting. And, yes, some of those "agencies" include a number of so-called "Game & Fish" departments. How they are accomplishing a well funded effort to put an end to hunting just may surprise you. This article shares a look at a new 2022 website which aims to counter the efforts and lies of that anti-hunting movement.

Note from MountainGnome Online: We have an old saying in the hunting, farming, and ranching community about these over populated predators..."SSS"!! Continued...
10 Deer Hunting Myths Debunked

Misconceptions:

A talking head on outdoor TV puffs his chest and declares, “Man, the full moon is the worst time to hunt!” Sounds pretty good, and you buy it. Your daddy told you never to overhunt a spot, and you never doubt Pops. Stands to reason that if another hunter tromps too close to your treestand, your day is ruined, right?

Uh, no, to all three of the above. Let’s change your thinking on some misguided beliefs about big deer and how to hunt them.

3.) If some guy tromps close to your stand, that spot is ruined for the day.
One November morning Indiana hunter Chris Thomas went to his ladder stand and got a shock — some slime bag had ripped it off! Chris was royally bummed and didn’t know what to do. He plopped down beside the tree to think, and just after sunrise a gang of pumpkin-colored hunters marched by on a deer drive. What the heck else could go wrong?

Chris had nothing better to do, so he sat tight. Two hours later he looked up bug-eyed as a huge buck raced down the ridge with some does. He aimed his shotgun, and the buck tumbled over. Chris’ tenacity rewarded him with a 198-inch non-typical giant.

It clearly happens on public ground and can occur on private land. When another hunter walks under your treestand, or roars by your blind on an ATV, you’re naturally going to think he spooked every deer within a mile. You’ll get mad and flustered and want to move to a new spot or go home.

Don’t. As long as the intruder hikes or drives on and gets gone in a hurry, sit tight. A buck might have been 150 yards away, standing stock-still and hidden in thick cover until the intruder passed. Or a 10-pointer might have been a half-mile away and was never aware of the guy’s disturbance. Either way, a shooter buck might stroll into sight 20 minutes or three hours later and turn a miserable start into an epic hunt.

TREASURES OF READING
Folks, here are some great books to read...THIS IS A MUST READ!
Buy Today...Great Reading!! The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates,
Big Pharma, and the Global War
on Democracy and Public Health

by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (Author)

#1 on AMAZON, and a NEW YORK TIMES, WALL STREET JOURNAL, USA TODAY and PUBLISHERS WEEKLY NATIONAL BESTSELLER


Pharma-funded mainstream media has convinced millions of Americans that Dr. Anthony Fauci is a hero. He is anything but.

As director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Dr. Anthony Fauci dispenses $6.1 billion in annual taxpayer-provided funding for scientific research, allowing him to dictate the subject, content, and outcome of scientific health research across the globe. Fauci uses the financial clout at his disposal to wield extraordinary influence over hospitals, universities, journals, and thousands of influential doctors and scientists—whose careers and institutions he has the power to ruin, advance, or reward.

During more than a year of painstaking and meticulous research, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. unearthed a shocking story that obliterates media spin on Dr. Fauci . . . and that will alarm every American—Democrat or Republican—who cares about democracy, our Constitution, and the future of our children’s health.

The Real Anthony Fauci reveals how “America’s Doctor” launched his career during the early AIDS crisis by partnering with pharmaceutical companies to sabotage safe and effective off-patent therapeutic treatments for AIDS. Fauci orchestrated fraudulent studies, and then pressured US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulators into approving a deadly chemotherapy treatment he had good reason to know was worthless against AIDS. Fauci repeatedly violated federal laws to allow his Pharma partners to use impoverished and dark-skinned children as lab rats in deadly experiments with toxic AIDS and cancer chemotherapies.

In early 2000, Fauci shook hands with Bill Gates in the library of Gates’ $147 million Seattle mansion, cementing a partnership that would aim to control an increasingly profitable $60 billion global vaccine enterprise with unlimited growth potential. Through funding leverage and carefully cultivated personal relationships with heads of state and leading media and social media institutions, the Pharma-Fauci-Gates alliance exercises dominion over global health policy.

The Real Anthony Fauci details how Fauci, Gates, and their cohorts use their control of media outlets, scientific journals, key government and quasi-governmental agencies, global intelligence agencies, and influential scientists and physicians to flood the public with fearful propaganda about COVID-19 virulence and pathogenesis, and to muzzle debate and ruthlessly censor dissent.

MGO EIDTOR'S NOTE: If any of this were untrue, Fauci would be suing the piss out of RFK Jr. However, Fauci wants none of this evedence going to court!

Why You Need to Try Black Bear Meat Now
Recipe: Old fashioned homemade chicken & dumplings
By Linda Griffith

This is definitely a delicious old fashioned chicken and dumplings recipe. It reminds us of something mom used to make. The from-scratch airy dumplings soak up the chicken flavor of the homemade broth. We opted to use a whole roasting chicken which, when shredded, adds tons of meat that mixes with the tasty dumplings. The perfect meal for when you want to cuddle up on the couch on a cold day.
    Ingredients:


    CHICKEN BROTH
  • 2-4 chicken breasts (bone-in with skin) or 1 whole 3 lb chicken
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 pkg chicken bouillon (or 2 spoonfuls)


  • DUMPLINGS
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 3 lg eggs
  • 1/2 c milk, 2%
  • 5 c all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 drops of yellow food coloring (or substitute a pinch of Turmeric)


  • Preparation Instructions:

  • CHICKEN AND BROTH: Place chicken breast or whole chicken with skin in a Dutch oven and cover with water.
  • Add a stick of butter and chicken bouillon. Cook over medium heat until chicken is tender, about 45 minutes for chicken breasts or 1 hr 15 minutes for the 3 lb chicken. Remove chicken from the broth and let chicken cool. Do not get rid of the broth. Remove skin and bones and discard. Shred chicken or chop into bite-size pieces. I don't put mine back into the broth until after the dumplings have cooked.
  • FOR DUMPLINGS: In a small mixing bowl, add eggs to the melted butter. Whisk.
  • Take half of a shell and add milk to it six times... pour into the egg mixture.
  • Add in salt and pepper.
  • Add 3 cups of flour; mixing in the flour a little at a time.
  • You want the dough to be rather sticky.
  • Add a couple of drops of yellow food coloring to give it a rich looking blend.
  • Heap about 2 cups of flour onto a wooden board or counter.
  • Using a tablespoon, add about a cup of the mixture to the center of the flour.
  • Start incorporating the flour and the dough until you can roll it out and it doesn't stick.
  • Roll very thin.
  • Using a pizza cutter, cut strips of the dough.
  • Add to the broth. Make sure it is boiling rapidly and that you have plenty of broth to keep your dumplings from scorching.
  • Turn down to low while you make the next batch. It's easier to roll out using small batches than trying to roll it all out at one time.
  • After you have added the last dumpling, add the chicken back to the Dutch oven and stir very gently.
  • Remove from heat and place a lid on the pot.
  • Let sit for 10 minutes or so before serving.
