Re: Back from a good trip
I am sure glad you liked AK! AK is a place you either love or hate. I go through a love/hate relationship with it! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
It sounds llike you had a spectacular trip. There are some real proffesionals here (in the true sense of the term) There are some real duds too, but it sounds like you hooked up with the right pilots and guides.
As the guides you were with prefer the m70 for bears, most bear guides up here do and for the very reason you describe. The 700 is great untill you are feeding it with more than the ussual amount of exertion! Then they can become a problem. Next year for my guiding repetwar, I will also be using a m70 in 375 H&H "AK guide rifle"
I am glad to hear you had a chance to eat some CR slamon! It is among the finest in the world! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
Many time and more times than not Alaskans including myself occasionaly take what we have here for granted. Then, at least my enthusiasm is boosted when I hear of persons such as yourself and what a great time you had.
PS, please send pics soon!

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
