Boy, I didn't expect that!

Unless you could hunt for about a week, I couldn't afford to come that far as I live in Va. I have previously taken 1 to 2 week hunts into Pa and Ohio for hogs but now my schoolbus is not ready to go out.

I have all sizes of rifles from .17 Mach IV to the .408 Cheytac. All but the .17 are wildcats and bench guns.

What are you shooting and what ranges are available to you?
Do you have to work each day?

I have good memories of Tioga county in NY for the best hog hunting I have had.

Randy

Re: which do you prefer, bi-pod or bags

This is the set up I use for long shots, It seems like I cant get steady enough with a bipod for the shots over 500 yards. The rest takes a little bit longer to get set up but when I am groundhoggin Im not in much of a hurry. I was able to get 3 good kills today with the 25-06AI at 433, 540 and one at 600 yards.

To tighten your harris you can use a rim on your case. And also harris 9-13 is the way to go.

Re: which do you prefer, bi-pod or bags

I've used the Harris 25" swivel for many years. And in the past few have also used a rear monopod(Accushot). My longest kill is 624 on a chuck between gravestones. My best shot -2wks ago, was a 510yd head shot 7mins after sunset. It was all I had because the rain has left hayfields higher than normal for this time of year.

I've stalked & killed hundreds of chucks over the years. And in my view, if your not walking with your shooting system, your not hunting. You're just 'target shooting' -at animals....

Leave the truck and go HUNTING
