Five operations later, having to re-learn to walk, probably another one slated this Spring.
Went hunting, the first time in nearly 10 years, last year and got my two deer (BP & rifle) and a moose and wouldn't have been able to do it without the help of an ATV to get to and from the stands...there isn't much use of the self climbing type around these parts, mostly ground blinds or the tripod or lean against ladder type.
I took a .375 H&H with me as a back up moose rifle and sighting it in wasn't too bad until the fourth shot, then I started to feel it.
I've had all of my rifles ported (even my varmint calibers)--to reduce muzzle climb & recoil--and muzzle brakes
installed to the heavier hitting--use them for sighting in...combined together they even make my uncle's .458 Lott relatively tame. He did his, after mine--even old dogs can learn new tricks.
This is the list! Correct? Family, health, guns, food, guns, house, guns, fishing stuff, guns, camping stuff, guns, clothing, guns, etc. & etc.
