Re: Anyone from Southern Alberta on this board?

I am from the Drumheller area,not really south but close, I do some long range shooting but as far as ranges go our local range is only good for 300m .Most of the long range shooting is done at a friends farm where we can go to 1000yrds,also the gopher pastures in the spring is great for 400-600yrd shots.
Good to see some Alberta boys on this site!!

    Well, I'm not from the south, but I visit there often. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] Lloydminster (soon to be Edmonton) here.....looking for some speed goats this year i think....draw book has not come in yet, although I know my moose and mulie draws are now 0's but my speed goat draws are 4-5 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Our range up here is out to 300 yards but there is a deer sized rock out at 497 yds that likes to get hit with my 300WM 190gr Hornady's doing 3100fps [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

    Good luck on the antelope draw, they're lots of fun. Here's one I got a few years ago.

    Slopes hunter, I'm in Calgary as well.
    You have an excellent facility about 50 minutes to the west, where you can shoot to a maximum distance of 900 meters. Let me know if you need more info.
