Re: Big Hit on credit Card

All I can figure is that our name got stuck in the computer somehow. The year I drew, the odds were 1 in 21. Then the year my dad drew, the odds were 1 in 25. THis year, Uncle B's odds were probably about 1 in 30 or so.

There's a homework assignment for some of the math wizzards. What are the combined odds of all of us drawing in under 4 years without max points?

Re: Big Hit on credit Card

I have a friend of mine that is very upset with me over drawing this tag, the reason is because we have had event tickets and airline tickets for a couple of months to the Motocross de Nations (kind of like motocross olympics. the 3 fastest racers from every country in the world compete) the problem is that the date is Sept 23rd in Budds Creek Md.(about 60 miles south of Washington D.C.). He has no comprehension of why I would rather be in south east Utah chasing around curly horn critters instead. to me there is no choice since my hunt opens on Sept 22nd, non hunters just dont understand.

Wow..congratulations...now comes the next hit to the Credit card for travel, scouting, and of course, a new rifle. Will you be hiring an outfitter ?

Tag of a lifetime, lucky you.

You are right about the hit to the creditcard for travel and scouting, as for rifle I will be using a rifle that Fiftydriver made for me 2 years ago a 7WSM based off a 270WSM Norma brass necked up shooting 180gr VLD Bergers.
as for an outfitter goodgrouper,my big BRO., and myself know this area better than any outfitter.(and besides most outfitters are too smart to go to this unit anyway)

Re: Big Hit on credit Card

Perhaps Uncle B didn't see your question so I will answer for him.

Most likely, he will be using his custom 7mm BSM otherwise known as a 7mm-270 wsm. Kirby built it for him for a deer hunt awhile back on a Sako action with a custom barrel (I forget which one) and a hunter weight Mcmillan stock.

We originally worked up a load for 160 grain accubonds which shot fairly well and very quick but last Saturday, Uncle B decided to try some 180 grain Bergers in it. Well, they shot at over 2850 fps, had a standard deviation of 3, had a wide node with low sd's on either side, and put 3 shots into a .216" group at 100 yards in a dirty 8 mph wind! BINGO!

Sheep country is too nasty to be packin a 52# gun around in, but if we hunt by boat, maybe it would be an option. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
