That is a great shot under field conditions with a pack for a rest! very nice rifle. Bet you were feeling no pressure at all with that shot.

Great pics. Love the detail on the rifle stock. Who says a rifle can't be businesslike and look good at the same time? Very well kitted out with field equipment. Like the gators and boots combo. What pack is that?

The backpack is a badlands I believe 2200, This model is a good 5 years old and has a fold over upper pack center compartment storm flap that creates a rifle rest in the top center section of the pack. - Functioned well.

Excellent! Tough to beat success. I like the look of that rig as well. Tell me about he barrel? 26? What taper? Looks a bit lighter than a sendero taper maybe a light varmint taper?
