Re: New "Jamboree" idea

I think this is a great idea, especially with WyoWhisper's little invite. I would shovel some horse pooh, amoung other things, to hunt Wyoming "speed goats". I would go count me in! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: New "Jamboree" idea

My wife and I just returned from a great, two week, 2,000 mile trip to Utah, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. We spent several nights at WyWhisper Guest Ranch. WyWisper and my intent was to hunt PDs, especially at long range (500+ yards). A cold snap and events of the 11th kind of damped the hunting. However, here is my $.02.

First and very importantly, Ric (aka WyWhisper) and his wife Dollie are just great people. The facilities are nice and the view across the valley is wonderful. Second, Cody has a really nice shooting complex with the rifle targets set in the usually 100 yard increments out to 600 yards. Steel plates are placed at 700 and 1,000 yards.(It has been years since I shot 500 yards but I can still hit the target.)Third, anyone interested in firearms will want to spend at least a half a day (perhaps much longer) in the firearms museum in Cody.Fourth, the all you can eat prime rib at The Irma is worth the $16 and making the trip.Fifth, we saw lots of game in the area.

Ric, correct me if I goofed or left something out. A jamboree sounds like a winner and Rand Creek Range has my support.

Re: New "Jamboree" idea

Dan, Thank you for the kind words. You and your wife are always welcome here!!!! Maybe you can make it back if this thing pans out !!! Now that you know you can shoot 3" groups with a stock factory gun at 500 yards!!!!

To all the rest, keep in mind helping out around here would entail, maybe helping cook, and prepare some of the meals. ( maybe someone has a great recipe to share ) clean some dishes etc. nothing major. BUT if you want to clean stalls and stuff you are more than welcome. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
We ( all that would be here for the hunt )can kinda treat this place like our own hunting camp sorta thing.....just an Idea...

I did some scouting on the way back from OK yesterday and found a few areas that held quite a few nice speed goats!!! oh yeah and they were w a y, w a y , w a y out there too!!!! easily 1000 yards.. I stalked them into about 400 yards. could be real fun and interesting !!!!!

To all who are interested...shoot me an e-mail at randcreekranch@aol.com and I will start making the list of perspective people.

Re: New "Jamboree" idea

WyoWhisper

I notice that antelope tags in Wyoming are obtained through a draw and that hunters applying together as a group can't include both resident and non-resident. Also, what are the drawing odds in the hunting area you propose?

How's the fall color right now?
