Over the last thirty plus years that I have been skiing, I've tried out quite a few goggles. Snow goggles are more than just an accessory. They protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, blinding winds, ice particles, twigs, and branches, improve your vision by preventing glare. At high altitudes, the atmosphere is thinner and unable to filter as many UV rays--making goggles even more necessary.
Cold freezing hands can wreck a great day skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing. Keeping your hands warm and dry when you're outdoors can be the difference between a good day and a terrible one. As always with snow sport gloves, the real challenge is finding the right combination between warmth and flexibility. There are few things to consider when you’re looking for the perfect pair of snow sport gloves this season.
I always receive a lot of questions about whether various hiking boots can be resoled or not. Up until recently the only hiking boots that could be resoled had to have a Norwegian welt. Welted soles could be replaced by almost any shoe repair shop. The issue was there was a very limited selection of hiking boots with a welted sole. Only a handful of companies like Alico and Merrell produced hiking boot with this type of sole.
On a Saturday morning last fall Pawnee, my male GSP, came to a solid point. As I approached where Pawnee was, a covey of a half dozen or so blue grouse busted into the air. My shotgun's muzzle swung around and in front of the grouse I fired. The dark bird tumbled, leaving a few feathers floating indicating where it fell.
Pawnee retrieved the bird, I looked around for someone to verify my shot, but no one was there.
The air is getting cooler and the aspens are changing colors. The signs of fall are upon us and soon it will be rifle hunting season for big game. Some of us may have purchased a new scope for our rifle or even a new rifle and scope. You now need to sight in your rifle. I would recommend before you go to the range or your favorite target shooting area that you bore sight your rifle first. It will save you time and ammo when you are ready to sight in
