It's interesting you make such a suggestion. My outfitter practically demanded that I make my reservation for the subject hunt for 3 days, instead of the 1-2 day reservations made by the bulk of his customers. This way, he insisted, you can spend the entirety of the first day 'shopping' for wall-hangers and plotting all possible 'thorough-fares' down which you bullet will potentially fly to its victim.
If you can see it, then you can hit it!
Thanks for the kind words, I appreciate that a lot. Congratulations on building a fine rifle, it is a shooter but you are also doing very well to shoot with such fine accuracy! Interested to hear what scope you are using since you have such a superb rifle.
If you would like to see some neat long range articles check out the current issue of Deer and Big Game Rifles, hate to blow my own horn but there is some nice info in some of the articles that you do not see often. I covered the idea of drawing simple field sketches and putting ranges of them, agree that this is a great hunting idea (borrowed from the tactical guys). I believe that there is a lot of info in that mag that has not been put into hunting mags, matter of fact I gave Len a plug for this forum in one of the articles.
I was fortunate to hunt (cull is more correct) black buck does a while back, they were very challenging because of their size. Used in-lines out to 250 yards, very neat challenge. Meat is wonderful but did not last long. The bucks make a great trophy, beautiful animals. You are going to be well prepared and I wish you a great hunt - need a spottter?

That magazine is on the racks right now, it is a Harris publication and is put out annually. I have six articles in it, four are about long range and hunting, the other two are muzzleloader related.
Hope you can locate it.
