Re: The Old Man Can Still Shoot Straight

Awesome! I'd love to find some spots local to the Lancaster area to do some shooting like this. I'd need some instruction as I've never shot beyond 500.

Re: The Old Man Can Still Shoot Straight

You should have a ton of farms in your area that would allow 500 yards plus...Start knocking on some doors, get permission, and I'll be happy to give you some instruction.

I started using Google Maps with satellite to find places that looked promising for archery. I do need to do some knocking.

Awesome shooting by your father. Nice pics of the country too.

BTW, tell me more about the rifle set ups you guys use.

Thanks.

Thanks.
The rifles you see in the pictures are both 7mm's. One is a wildcat based off the .300 Wby, and the other is a 7 RUM. The one in the bench stock is the 7 RUM. At 84 years old, my father has difficulty shooting prone.. I found the best way for him to be successful in shooting this far, is to have him shoot from a portable bench. I've since replaced the NSX on the 7 RUM with a Schmidt & Bender. It's much easier on his eyes when the old groundhogs want to play "jack in the box".
