    Hello Boyd

    Sorry you had baby sitter problems.

    The rocks up here are growing BIG antlers for some reason.
    Makes the shooting more realistic & like hunting season when you hit them.

    I'll give you a shout when I get caught up on some things. I have 3 new rifle barrels to brake in and get ready for this 1000 yard shooting season, a newsletter for the Williamsport club to write, three sets of bigeyes to put together and collimate and send out, cutting trees and burning brush on our 100 acres and just a bunch to do right now.

    I'll be in touch.

    DC,

    Mileage isn't the word for it .. I was just looking at it this afternoon and one guy saw it... that blossomed into a 45 min. conversation with a group of about 10 guys basically standing in awe of what is possible with some knowledge, practice and skill. They were all impressed with the amount of practice and time involved as well as the analistic ways concerning the importance put on safty and the use of "teams" ( ie: spotters ).

    I think the plague may be spreading....

    Ric

    LR hunting has been spreading for years now but, as of late, it has exploded.

    AS long as some of these guys don't start thinking just because they walked out of a gun shop with a new Sendaro and a longrange scope on it that, they are longrange hunters.

    As you told them, it takes a lot (years) of practice to KNOW what your rifle is capable of. Most people have NO idea what a bullet is capable of way out there.

    Safety is number one in the LR sport and should NEVER be attempted without ALL of the top equipment available.

    I try to tell everyone, there are NO ANIMALS in the World worth taking a shot at when you have a hunter within 1000 yards of that animal on the far mountain. That's what the bigeyes are for. Not only to scan the far mountains for game but, also to make sure there are no hunters anywhere near the intended target. The animal walks away free if there is any question to this policy.

    It is a TEAM sport to do it correctly and to be able to spot EVERY shot, you need a partner.

    Hope you have a great weekend at the show.
