Re: Best place to hunt long range?

Don't know what kind of budget you have, but they sell a PLRF10 here I on this sight I think. It is suppose to be good to 2K and farther. Quite spendy though. I think it is in the neighborhood of $3 to $4000.00. Suppose to have a really tight beam, and Shawn Carlock developed a stand to put an additional optic on the front to increase its power visually to what ever power you want to increase it too.

    Wyoming antelope is good option. Put in for a buck permit. If you don't draw out you can still hunt does. Lots of units have leftover does tags. Some units you can get multiple tags.

    Antelope is the most fun and easiest. Multiple tags and choose your shot. We got plenty of them within an hour of the house.

    Thank you for serving and defending our freedom so we can all enjoy this! I would suggest Montana as a great place for long range with a variety of animals to hunt including lots of off season predators and varmints. Southern Idaho is also good. Better have your wind doping down especially in Mt.......Rich

    Praire dogs!! Probably not as glamorous as Big Horn Sheep, 6x6(or bigger) Elk, but still fun. Take multiple rifles to allow for cooling of barrels, and don't forget to bring plenty of ammunition(I ran out of .243AI pretty early on and had to ride it out on the .223Rem stuff for the last three days).

    Fun times!!!



    Thanks for your service!!

    Thank you all for you appreciation and suggestions. If anyone has more ideas feel free to keep posting. I recently ordered an M200 Intervention in the .408 cal. and it is hard to find places to really put it through its paces. I am a personal contractor now so i get the opportunity to go to all sorts of fun places. On my off time i am free to travel in the surrounding countries. So i am really looking into the Indies and New Zealand. thanks for the heads up on the range finder. Keep the comments coming by all means!
    Thanks again.

    For range finders you could try the TRUpulse 200. It is the new range finder that the BOTW will be offering. However, there is no need to pay the price they will want if you just want a range finder. This thing will measure 2000 yards to +/- one ft on reflective targets and 1000 yard with +/- 1yd accuracy on non-reflective. All for around $700.00. Its worth a look. Heres the link
