Howdy. New to the forum.

Well, let's start off with some background... Combat veteran, been there done that to many extents. I know my way around a rifle, and generally can milk out some decent accuracy.

My current bolt gun's a 700 Sendero in 7mm Rem Mag, Leupy VarX-3 6.5-20x40 up top with leupy rings to boot. Harris bipod. I've got other toys, but this is the hunting machine for now.

I'm hunting up here in alaska for food for the family, regardless of what everyone says... one moose will feed the wife and I for quite some time, and end up being more enjoyable, healthy, and cost effective than going to the market.

I don't intend on specifically trying to find an animal as far away as possible, but if I see one and it's within easy recovery distance, the variables are right, then I'm going to drop the hammer, no questions asked.

With that, my hunting's going to be primarily backpack hunting, with the wife along as my spotter and backup.

Glad to be here, and look forward to talking with you all at length about the long shots... Some people don't understand it's just as hard(if not harder) to take a long shot as it is to stalk up with a bow, just different variables.

That's a given. Many shots will be taken, but hopefully only as much recoil as I have tags... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Howdy. New to the forum.

Welcome and thanks for your service.

We banter about a bit here, so watch the smilies for clues. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] Such as, "you can't believe much of what buffalobob says, except what he says about me.: [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Its gotta be sweet having the wife as your spotter, best be treating that lady right. She sounds like a keeper. And from what you posted regarding your hunting methods, she's good for all day! Them'ins are sure hard to find. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Your 7 will do you well.
