No bears. Next stop, Marmota flaviventris.
Rock chuck, that is.
It turns out that I didn't get the draw I wanted for black bear so we are switching gears and going for a 500+ yd hit on a chuck and if everything goes well maybe a 1K.
We are in the middle of building Gonehuntingagains heavy duty shooting bench that will be our platform for most of these shots. I will be posting pictures of it when we are done.
I will thank Dave in Idaho in advance for being our host hunter for this endevor. He has a great eye for spotting critters where there seem to be none. He spotted me some deer at about 1000 yards from my moving vehicle once. Truly amazing for a short bald guy with glasses.
Spring seems to have arrived here in Idaho and I can almost hear the chucks chirping.
Good Luck to all of you this spring.

GRAVITY. It's not just a good idea. It's the LAW!
