Thanks everyone. It was just the glove that makes the trigger act up. Same on my Model 93 .22 mag and 17HMR's.
Pete in Fbks... I run all of my weapons dry and oil free after a few years of mishaps.
AK TRAPR.... Profloat skis bolt right on to the Skidoo's both IFS and Pogo suspensions, You do have to use the Polaris rubber boot on the ski too.
Wolverine Hunter.... I do not sell my snares. There is lots of snare manufacturers out there. I just like to build my own.
Nunamiut.... Sorry to hear about your wreck but they make new rifles every day. Hard to replace us....
drasselt.... I'm thinking the same thing. I have trapped the area for quite a few years using my own urine on pee posts and now believing that the wolves have submitted and gave the area within 3 miles of my cabin to me. I haven't had them howl or caught them on camera at all this season. Starting to believe I am the Alpha male and along with my girlfriend, we are the new Dry Creek pack. We are a small pack and have a pretty small territory but I will defend it vigorously.....No plans of being more than a pack of two.
Elitebowman... Never had a misfire, it is definately just the gloved trigger. Not with a leather glove, just the soft monkey face gloves I believe. I fired several shots with my leather gloves without fail. I have shot a few wolves with the .204 with the 40 gr V-max with excellent results. I would be careful on shot placement though. I'm not sure how it would do on a shoulder at range. Wolves are a bigger animal than people think. Far from a coyote.....I like my hunters to use the same calibers as they'd use for deer hunting. I just like how accurate it is, little recoil and flat shooting.
Did a quick run out to the cabin against my better judgement. Cold and breezy. Picked up a nice coyote who is in the washer right now. Found a pack of wolves 20 miles away and placed some gear. they made it down the river but narrowly missing where I had gear. Loving the ride on the new Expedition and it started right up at 30 below. Did learn one thing.... Don't use the parking brake on the truck or trailer at 30 below. Had a heck of a time unloading. Ran into a big ol herd of caribou by the cabin yesterday. They hung around for pictures not fearing the new Alpha male of the pack....
Crazy how 30 below can still be beautiful
Heading back out Saturday with Stacey. Good luck and be safe
