I wanna see your long range hunting setups

Hey guys just got drawn for mule deer hunt on the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Reservation. I need to setup my Allen Precision 338 for actual field use, right now it is naked. Need to get a sling (thinking about flush cups on left side) scope level, ect. I would really like to see how you guys are setting up your rifles.

Thanks Corey

    I would have a front post for a bipod and skip the sling. Pick up an Eberlestock pack and carry the rifle that way. It's a ton more comfortable if you have to walk any distance. My rig is 15.5 lbs and it feels like nothing in my X1A1, it feels like 100 lbs after only a mile with a sling.

    BTW, be sure you have a way to shoot sitting very well supported. Unless you luck out, a shot from the prone can be hard to find.

    Good Luck!

    Hi,

    This is my LRH setup
    338edge, 18lb rifle with bipod, sling, scope, magasine

    I used 2 slings for better holding on each shoulder.
    It is like a school backpack, I can run, jump with the rifle.
    I have also a tactical pocket west for all LRH gear and some water and food for 1 day hunting trip.
    All the weight is well tight to my body, and all my concern is to scout and glass for games.
