Re: 2013 Big Game Hunts

I'm going on my first ever rifle elk hunt to New Mexico, near the Gila area. I'm taking my new Winchester model 70 300 win mag. I'm having a new barrel put on it and the stock bedded. Hoping it will print .5 to .75 MOA.

    1: Alaska dall sheep 300 win mag/210 ALR (300 because a big grizzly may be sighted and hunted)
    2: Nevada antelope 6.5x284/140 VLD
    3: Etolin Island Alaska bull elk 300 win mag/210 ALR

    I've got the ALRs dialed in very well and can't wait to test them on game.

    Thus far, it's either sex special elk tag for the Beartooth WMA and hoping to send off 175gr Matrix VLD off my .270 AI. Also, general elk, general deer, WT doe, and bear tag.

    Still waiting for special draw cow elk and either sex antelope tags.

    No joy for AZ elk or antelope. Still waiting to hear on my AZ deer and sheep tags in AZ. Staying away from CO this year. Personal choice. My protest for their rash political decision on their gun/magazine ban. I urge others to do the same. I will find some other place to hunt.

    Unfortunately, boycotting the Colorado Parks & Wildlife isn't really the way to go about showing your discontent...
