Re: Bittersweet Varmint Hunt

Joel ,
My favorite spot in is your first picture and i hunt a few other fields around Vernon's farm and a few spots around ulysses. We got a coyote at 1205 yards and a few chucks around 1175 yards there a few years ago in that back field in your first picture. Beautiful country up there. Vernon's boy told me about other hunters getting chucks in that back field and maybe he was talking about you guys.

We hit Vernon's place first thing and realized the fileds were just a bit high. They had a pile of rain after the second cutting, and things greened up quickly. We took a bunch of critters off those fileds in the picture over the years. We then headed out toward the McCutcheon farm and out to Lehman's farm.
The action was not like it's been in years past, seems to have slowed down a bit on every farm we hunt.
We should get together and take a trip up before the season is over.
Do you live near me? Have we met?

Glad to hear that you had a great day shooting with your father. I know that I really treasure the times I get to hunt with my father.

Re: Bittersweet Varmint Hunt

Great pictures, story and shooting! Some serious LR shots. Were all the shots taken from the tripod-rest? I'm not sure I'm Hoss enough for those distances without a standard bipod or bench set-up. But, I've never tried a stand-up tripod afffair like that either. Congrats on a great day with dad.
