Re: 30 WOLF

I would like to attend something like this out in Wyoming save a spot for me. It would be fun to shoot at gongs at unknown ranges have the shooter range the target and not tell the range he gets one shot then off to the next target. I think the targets would be nice to be from 500 yards out to over 2000 yards just for fun [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Then shoot another day the 1000 1500 2000 2500 yard gongs.

Re: 30 WOLF

If all can agree to a date and it works in on my callender all are welcome, obvioulsy donations for steel plates and/or someone to help make steel target stands/ target stands etc. will be needed. I will fill my cabins to capacity if everyone annies for food etc. we can cook it here at the lodge etc. If we all chip in I won't loose my ***** for the cost...

Once my place is filled there are other nice places to stay here in the area...

right now the very last week of Sept. looks the best for me...

If your trying to duplicate extreme longrange hunting, the one shot situation is probaly not a real good idea.
Many shooters would NEVER get on a steel plate.

We would be there for hunting duplication and fun shooting and to show those who have not done a lot of Ultra LR shooting what can be accomplished

Most LR shooters trying to hit something in a hunting situation at 1500 to 2000 would not do so if it was just with one shot and not shooting a sighter or two.
I wouldn't shoot at an animal knowing I may not place that bullet into him with a killing shot the first time and taking only one shot at him at that range.

There are just two many obsticles to overcome when shooting for 1 st round hits past 1000 yards. Up to 1000 yards it's a pretty safe bet that you can make the hit, but after that conditions change rapidly and it seems a spotter shot is the way to go to eleminate a wounded animal senerio.

There are very few shooters/hunters in the World that would honstly try 1 shot hits at 1500 to 2000 yards day after day, in new uncharted areas.

If someone has tried an area and shot it recently, they may have a handle on the 1st shot kill if the range and wind were known in advance.
This is not the case at Rics place or the real world of ultra longrange hunting.

Maybe out to 1000 yards would be the 1 shot aveneue to consider. After that sighters to be shot away from the steel.

Repeatability of your rifle is important too. It's nice to see (after you are on target) how many times in a row you can hit the steel plate at extended range. It will show you what your rifle is capable of doing and how well it holds on target.

Just my thoughts.

I remember when the best shooters in the world said, "A one shot kill is not real likely past 800 yards". Even Carlos said he felt he needed to be within 700 meters or so to "Be Sure", I believe he was refering to man sized targets.

Which brings me to the fact that it all depends on what system your using and on what day, and on what size target. If I had money on the line, I would much rather be shooting at an elk at 1500 than a coyote, Antelope are not real big, and my longest kill to date on one is 1,450 yards.

With your mindset and skills and equipment, I doubt you will have much trouble out to 1,200 on med size targets, (deer and antelope) and great success on elk sized targets, in readable wind conditions. Hell, you might even figure something out the rest of us have not, (God Forbid) and push that envelope way down the road. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: 30 WOLF


I read somewhere that you are going to have a guided groundhog hunt? This cracked me up when I first read it BUT this could be big\small business. Also it would be nice for some of us westerners to get into the 1K club. What are the rules? anyway LOTS of good people in CODY, and the summer rodeo goes on for ever! Last time I was there I was getting the OLD reformer ouy of the OLD husky refinery for a client. GOOD LUCK WITH THE RANCH.

Re: 30 WOLF


Nope not groundhawgs.... prariedogs...

One of my buddies I guide with and I secured a 10,000 acre ranch in the Casper area that has millions of pd's, literally some of the dog towns are 100's of acres large!!!
We will be doing a semi guided hunt and a deluxe hunt $100 and $150 per day respectively. The 1 K club shouldn't be a problem....

Let me know if you are interested..
