Great report and nice shooting. The results aint too bad either! All those critters are exceptional exsamples of their respective species, except for the whittie. Of course you did Shawn a favor by taking him out of the gene pool. Am still trying to fill a deer tag myself. I'm down in the Bozeman area this week with my son-in-law. BTW Jen says Thanks!

Will be talking with you soon. Good report.

The reason I want 338 Raptor is to shoot moose across large swamp which is about 1km to 1.8km long and over half km wide.

If the OAL of the rifle is around 53" including 4 port muzzle brake therefore the standard rifle case will not fit, correct? Do you use soft rifle case, similar to Voodoo?
The Raptor LRSS used my 3 port medium PK muzzle brake and yes they are roughly 53" in length. There are a few quality aluminum cases that are plenty long. Normally I use Kalispel style cases which have plenty of room.

Congrats Kirby,

Some nice trophies. The aoudad is a stud for sure. Enjoyed the story. Takes a little sting from own season, as at this point I am being shut out. Good job and good shooting.
