FIREARMS & OPTICS / 338 practice
September 25, 2023, 06:17:54 AM
I got an email the other day from Colorado Parks and Wildlife to qualify for an elk depredation hunt on the Sand Dunes Wildlife refuge. As part of that I have to shoot 6 rounds in 3 minutes. The first 3 are at 200 yards kneeling then 3 at 300 yards from prone. The target is 12x14 inches and you are allowed 0 misses. So yesterday I got my 338 out to the range. First I checked my zero at 100 yards. Then I went through the drill 5 times and was successful on 4. My range only goes to 200 yards so I only did the kneeling portion with a time limit of 90 seconds. I found that that was plenty of time. I never had less than 35 seconds left after my last shot.
WATERFOWL/UPLAND GAME / Colorado grouse success
September 19, 2023, 12:17:59 PM
With last year's harsh winter we didn't draw any big game tags this year. So I decided to concentrate of birds. Our dusky grouse season opens on September 1st and lasts until almost pheasant season. On Sunday I got up with my youngest daughter and her boyfriend. We ended the day with 3 birds, one each. With some better shooting, we would have had at least double that. Rebel worked hard and put in 14 miles while finding birds for us. I'm going back up on Saturday to try again.

You have two kidneys, don't you?  :biggthumpup:

I would take any one of them. Just not for that price.

I think that with the decimal point it would by $3450.00. Too rich for my blood.

I am very sad to hear that. He always had great insight.

I hope they get it figured out.
WATERFOWL/UPLAND GAME / Colorado pheasants
December 08, 2022, 05:12:27 PM
I got out last weekend for my first pheasant hunt of the year. We had a good day. I finished with two and my buddy got one. I should have had three but one ran in to heavy cover and we never found it.

A couple of the loads show some promise with a little tweaking. How far of a range do you have available?

Nice buck! I like the Euro mounts. That's what I do with anything I want to hang up.

I would take the 6.5x55 over the 243 all day long and twice on Sunday.
