Re: hunting in the desert
I don't know how far the mojave natl. preserve is from you but there is some good quail shooting there during the season. There is also deer tags for that area available. . . although I didn't have any luck last year. .. very few and far between.
The rabbit shooting there can be phenominal, and there is coyotes around but I have yet to kill one.
Other than that, you're in the same boat i'm in. . . SCREWED!!! Not to mention that the mirage of summer makes LR nearly impossible. . .
Best of luck.
I shoot 1/4 inch groups at a 1000 yards. That is...till my second shot.
