    The proper deer hunting bullet

    I like a bullet that will penetrate to the chest cavity from any angle. My choice currently is the 100 grain Nosler E tip at 3600 fps from my .257 Weatherby. I've shot 3 whitetails and one antelope with shot distances from 42 yards to 425 yards. Three if them went straight down and the 425 yard...

    8mm Remington Mag

    I have a Rock Creek barreled 8mm mag. It shoots 200 gr partitions into half inch or better groups at 3050 fps. I was loading them to 3150 fps but the recoil was a little too much for me. I've killed 3 deer, 3 bears and a big bodied bull elk with it. Shots were 75 to 200 yards on the deer and...

    Spotting scope question

    My experiences with long range shooters

    Wind is not your friend and neither is lack of practice. Sounds like none of those guys had any business shooting as far as they did. 600 yards is as far as I have access to practice and if the wind picks up it is hard to place the first shot on the money even at that range. Practice and knowing...

    What is a shooter to you

    On a general or low point hunt the first legal bull is in trouble. Last year I drew the late Wasatch tag with 12 NR points. The first morning I passed up the widest 6x6 I have ever seen due to shortish tines and a 300+ 5x5 that had one brow tine at least 2 feet long. All together I passed up...

    Montana Muley

    I hunted Region 6 south of Ft. Peck reservoir 2 years ago. Very few trees except along creek bottoms. Rolling terrain with lots of high points to glass for miles.
