Crop damage hunt coming soon!!

Got a call from my crop damage hunting partner...it's that time again!! He has 5 farms lined up and around 20 tags for each farm. I have a 250 mile drive to his place so I'm taking most of the July 4th week off work to make as big a dent as possible in the herd. The link below goes to the report of last years hunt. This year I'll again be toting the APS 7mm-270WSM XP-100 (162AM at 2825fps) and likely the .250 Savage Imp XP-100 (100gr SMK at 2580fps). Ranges last year were out to 400yds or so. This year we have a few farms that will extend the potential firing range. Hopefully I'll have the chance to break my 396yd longest kill (which is also my longest attempt) with a handgun. I may also take a rifle to test...not sure if it will be the .280AI Rem 700 or Mauser .30 Gibbs. Last year I took a Mauser .243Winny (75gr VM at 3400fps) and it did a dandy job on one deer at 300yds....may just take it again since it's a good truck gun. The AI and Gibbs are too pretty for all the in and out of the truck that we'll be doing.

Can't WAIT!!! Time to recheck drop charts!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Is it wrong to grill steaks and eat them on the farmers porch while shooting deer?? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    It depends on whether or not the farmer is eating with you.
