Re: Long range or short range?

dallascolt,
It's 8.5-25x40. The recticle is a fine plex. I am ok with it. It's about six years old. It's elevation turret been up and down 1000's of times and still on. I should have bought a 50mm though. Lower light and 25 power gets a little dim. 20x and down works great early and late.
Greg

Re: Long range or short range?

shootinlong you're a lucky guy, are those fields near your home? Up here in Berks, the longest we usually can get is 600 or so for skinnys (chucks). Every now and then you find a farm that you can hunt to 800 but haven't tried it yet.

skinny shooter,
I hunt in Tioga county, around my house you can get maybe 500 yards that safe to shoot. I've been going to Tioga for about 20 yrs now. I love to hog hunt so I don't mind the drive too much.(My wife thinks I'm nuts.)
Try that 800 yards. It's a real thrill when you connect for the first time. Let me know how you make out.
Greg

Shootinlong,
Where in York do you hunt for groundhogs? I live in Lancaster and would like to give this a try as I am just getting into long range shooting. But I can not figure out where to go or who to even ask. In addition, I hunt in Tioga county as well. We have a camp just outside of Wellsboro off of Rt. 6. Where in Tioga do you shoot groundhogs? Thanks for your help!!!

Re: Long range or short range?

7mmMag, I hunt north of Dover and south of Red Lion.(500 yarders are not too common.300-400 are fairly common.) York stinks for getting permission though. It took me years to get the places I've got. Everyone is anti' or paraniod of you getting hurt or breaking something. It's a shame how a few punk hunters can ruin it for everyone. Anyhow, I did find a few more this year thru a pro trapper. Maybe next spring we can hook up.
In Tioga, that's completely different. I hunt north of Mansfield. Up there almost anyone will let you hunt. Some will even let you drive on there field roads.
Hope this helps.
Greg
