Re: 1st wolf tag punched

BH Hunter,

Yes it is a sporter weight rifle. She comes in at 11.5 lbs ready to hunt. Thanks for the complement. She's dressed in Bob's awesome rock web with the tungsten CeraKote on the metal.

Limitations are a little difficult to pin down. With Bill beside me calling the wind I've never questioned pulling the trigger on an animal if he gives me the green light and tells me to "send it". As for the rifle, its very accurate and has shot awesome groups at distance. Best groups to date under controlled shooting conditions was a 1 7/8" 3 shot group at 910 yards and a 12" 3 shot group at 1760 yards. Now, I've got to say two important things. I've found that it much more difficult to shoot in field/hunting conditions than a full canyon rifle is like Bill's. It's been real apparent when new to long range shooters shoot the full canyon vs sporter weight. Secondly, i love my sporter for hunting in specific areas/hunts but my next custom rifle (in process at Shawns) is being built on the canyon platform for uncompromising long range precision.

My canyon looks just like yours.
Bill texted me a pic of your mile group. Good shooting.

Great job on the wolf. Your certainly correct on the hair standing up on your neck when they cut loose, especially when they are all around you. I am hoping to get one, but since I began buying tags I don't see them any more!!!! LOL

Re: 1st wolf tag punched

Trust me, raising livestock in this state is justification enough, and should count as a tag all by itself... But if i do manage to kill a wolf i'd like to be able to keep him. Sure hope we don't start having trouble again, we lost a calf this spring and the neighbors lost three, they were issued a kill permit but nothing came of it and there were no more issues after that though.

Congratulations on the Wolf Kill!!!!!!! Great to see one of our "Game Killers" out of action!!! I must say, things looked pretty clear out there that day. Lately, all the smoke from wildfires would have made for poorer pictures, & hunting, I'm sure. Great job!!!!!
