Re: Oregon! Anyone seen any Diggers yet?

Man, that sounds like a lot of fun. I will have to wait for awhile. My project will not be completed until Novemeber 07 and the squirrels don't start getting thick until around March and April, so it will be 2008 before I get to pop them with the big 300-WSM. I am having it specially designed around the 125grn BT, it should be deadly out to 1000 yards. Here are the specs;

1. 300-WSM,Match Chamber for Norma Brass.
2. Nesika Model L, 1.470 Dia Action, Fluted Bolt, Tactical Knob.
3. Krieger, 30", 1-15 twist, 1.450 Straight Cylinder, throated for the 125grn BT.
4. McMillan Tooley MBR, 5 pounds lead added to rear, removable front stud for bi-pod use.
5. Jewel 2oz Trigger.
6. Vias Muzzle brake.
7. Davidson 20MOA Scope Base.
8. Kelby 30mm Rings.
9. Nightforce 8x32x56mm NXS W/MLR Reticle.
10. Rifle weight will be around 30 pounds.

Give some specs on your rigs!

Catshooter I love your screen name. It reminds me of my friend, you would probably get along with him just fine.

We were outside of John Day 2 weeks ago. On Friday it was 80 degrees. Took 150 shots. Sat. it rained and they didn't come out much. We are going over this next weekend, if the weather looks OK.

Re: Oregon! Anyone seen any Diggers yet?

A few weeks ago, I was up in Modoc County ( North Eastern area of Northern California) which is south of Oregon. This year the ground squirrel population was about half what it was year ago. The farmers and ranchers think the mild winter and flood irrigation made an impact on the population. This year the ground squirrels were in the 250 plus yard range and very skiddish. Last year, there were so many that you could shoot them within 50 yards and shoot all day without making a dent in the population. I hope next year there will be better shooting or should I drive a few more miles north and head into eastern Oregon?
