Re: Ideal Wolf Hunting Rifle
tclose, we've got some things in common and I'd love to share the range with ya if it were possible ( may be even a beer )that is great to have it so you can shoot without leaving the house. I had just gathered up what trapping stuff that was in a shed 3 weeks ago and a guy is taking it to a trapper gathering in a month or so to sell. Some of it was in good shape from being waxed when put up, some the boys left in there was not great but certainly useable. It brought back a flood of memories for me.
The range I shoot at is 9 miles away but if someone is on the 200yd line you cannot shoot from 500yd, not enough room on the land the club owns. I live in the hills of southern Indiana and I would have to drive 60 miles to Fort Knox to shoot further than 500yd and then you can only shoot when another club is having a shoot. The next closest place is a 100 miles to shoot a 1,00yds.
I've got a custom 300win mag that I let my son and grandson shoot at 936yrds when I was in Oregon last year Elk hunting with them( no luck ). I'd love to be able to shoot 1,000yds with it and the Creedmoor on a regular basis.
The 7 days a week is not a whole lot of fun, but a guy does what he has to do. I was a Iron Worker for 30 years and worked pretty close to 7 days a week my last 12 to 15 years so I never had a lot of time either except for a couple months each year maybe. I had to take disability, broke and wore out parts caught up with me after 30 years of abuse.
Have a good'n my friend. Jesse
