Awesome, absolutely awesome. Some of the finest terrain I have had the pleasure of seeing and damn excellent shooting to boot.

Keep it coming [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

many thanks for the story and pics. just great.

Dave,
Don't mean to sound like an expert, its just we usually use the walk about guns for the shots inside 800 yards. Weighing 20lbs, we only pull the black gun out for shots around 1000 yards plus. It was just young Ryan was a little small to shoot our light weight boomers, and the black gun is a pussy to shoot, you don't have to hold it.

Greg,

That was one of the best stories I've read in quite a long time and absolutely FANTASTIC photography.

It seems that you enjoy wonderful family, friends, and shooting equipment along with some spectacular places to hunt.

Good on you!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
