Wyo. Long Range Hunt and Video Shoot!!

Well.... we're back and to say we had fun would be an understatement!!! We had a blast and we all filled our tags in a day and a half.

WE were only able to take our longest speed goat at 500 yards as the winds kept us "tied up" .. and go figure after we all filled our tags and had to do alot of the "fill in" video footage the winds quit and the weather was perfect! But oh well.. those things are expected....

We had very good results with the 180 gr Nosler ballistic tip out of a 300RUM and excellent results from the new Nosler Acccubond outta the 300 RUM as well.. to say the 200 gr accubond is a wind bucker is an understatement!! Exit would of 3" or more !

My Buddy Steve ( Hunt724 on here ) and I would like to say THANK YOU to the Point Blank Team and all our friends who hunted and helped us out making the video! I'd love to say more to you but you'll have to wait until final production of the Point Blank video in the next year or so... we need a couple of more tags and footage before it is complete.

Once again we had a fun, safe, enjoyable hunt and we laughed and joked nearly all the time.... what a BLAST!!!!

Here are some pics of the LR setups and Antelope taken.....

Sounds like you had a blast--I wish my trip had been a week earlier--I'll be leaving to come your way Saturday morning about 5 a.m. We'll be at my brother's in Laramie on Sunday night. I didn't get drawn for a buck and the doe tags are sold out but my mom and a buddy's wife got tags and I'm going to set them up with my .308 for a long shot if one presents itself and the wind is right. Glad to hear the hunt went well... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Ric--
Helped Mom and Dad fill their goat tags yesterday--4 tags--had them all filled by lunch.
I set up the rifles and let them shoot since I didn't have a tag. Here's how it went:
125 yds -- doe--Mom with her .243 Win.
410 yds -- doe Dad with the Jerry Rice .300 RUM
604 yds--buck-- Mom with my .308 Win
852 yds--buck --Dad with the .300 RUM
All in all, turned out to be a great day...Pics will follow when my hand heals a little more...
