My rifle is done. My 'smith sent me a picture of a nice 1.24" group shot at 400 yards. Can't wait to get my hands on that baby!

Re: Anyone getting antsy?

Got my first groundhog of this year on Feb. 29; a personal-best earliest date. Am seeing a lot of movement for this early on the year in OH, and they seem to be eating, and not just looking for opportunities to procreate (a little late now, anyway) so maybe they're out for good. Gotta be better than last year, when rain and heat kept them in their holes.
