Re: 2013 Big Game Hunts

I just got back from South Africa two weeks ago. Any big game hunt here this year will just be a bonus. ND deer tags are gonna be hard to get this year.2013 Big Game Hunts-577.jpg

    Jeeze kinda hard to top those pics

    All I got is this little ole muley hope to find one bigger this year and an elk as well rifle is a Lorenzo Young at deadly precision work of art on a savage 110 fcp donor shoots even better than it looks and didn't do this little guy any favors.





    I have a lot of other rifles, but this one is what I hunt with

    The wife and I and both of my boys pulled cow tags for Colorado this year! Should be a full freezer for sure. Didn't draw my LE Utah elk tag again....thats 11 years now. Oh well, those cows sure will make for some fine eating.

    Re: 2013 Big Game Hunts

    My buddy and I drew Arizona Unit 22 North Bull Elk tags for this December. It's hard getting tags in AZ. I drew a bull tag 15 years ago and never got to make the hunt due to a death in the family. So this is pretty much my first elk hunt (where I have the tag). My friend is lucky and has had an elk tag the last 3 years running. Go figure. Anyways, I'm going to use a Savage 7mm Rem Mag Trophy Hunter 111 XP. I've chosen a Vortex Viper PST Scope, with BlackHawk Rings, and a BlackHawk Picatinny Rail. I've got a 168 grain Berger load worked up for the rifle that's giving me .7 MOA all the way out to 500 yards thus far, with a MV or 3024 fps. I hope to push the rifle out to 1000 yards soon, but only plan on making a kill shot out to my comfort zone (what ever that might be come the hunt). So far I am very confident that any elk within 500 yards would be in the freezer. I have a lot yet to learn before I can feel the same way about an 800 or 900 yard shot.

    I will be chasing muleys in the badlands with stick and string and hopefully with my new 7mm WSM build that finished up in March.
