Just back from a great event at the Flying B ranch near Kamiah ID. Weatherby hosted a few guys to a show and tell about their '07 product line. Big news was the Mark22, barreled bolt-action made in Germany by a superb company whose rifles have won many Olympic medals (Anshutz) and stocked in California with a scaled down Weatherby trademark design stock. It is SWEET and handles like a dream. Yup, another toy for the Liberty toy chest. Now to decide which scope would be appropriate...
We shot a bunch of upland birds with Weatherby shotguns, did some interesting shooting with a variety of rifles and even hunted cull-does. The ranch setting is fantastic - five star all the way.
Idaho is God's Country. We were blessed with perfect weather, incredible hunting dogs, bazzilions of birds, great guides. Very tuff job but someone has to do it, right!
I shot some interesting bird hunting photos with my Nikon, some nasty images of birds taking on a load of shot.
Long day, flew to Seattle, then Edmonton, then home today - not exactly the direct route.
