Swaro PD Hunt in Casper, WY

Lerch and I just found out that we are going on our Swarovski prairie dog hunt July 12-15. We figured that we would have to get there on our own, so we were just going to drive. Today we found out that they are paying for us to fly into Casper. Normally this would be great news, but, unfortunatly, it is going to limit us on firearms that we can take [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img].

We are thinking that we can take all of our "normal firearms" on the plane w/us. We are also wanting to take our 338 AM which weighs in @ about 70 lbs. I looked on American Airlines sight and it looks like they would charge me about $150 to get it up there on the plane. It's also going to cost me an extra $100-$150 for my "normal rifles." I don't know if this is one way or round trip. Would it be cheaper to ship them up there and pick them up than to pay the airline??? Just trying to save a few bucks if it's even possible.

Also, what are the restrictions on taking cleaning solvents on planes??? I'm not going to take my custom rifles if I can't clean them regularly!!

Thanks

I live about an hour and 15 minutes North of Casper. Maybe you boys can venture up here and we can try calling in a Coyote or 2..... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Swaro PD Hunt in Casper, WY

I'm in Casper and here to help.Just ship the rifle and ammo to me and I'll have it sited in(Most of the shooting is @ 5100') and ready to go fer ya [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]For an extra couple hundred I'll even save a few dogs for ya [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
All kidding aside if you need any help let me know,always ready to help a fellow dogger!
It cost me $50 to ship a 36# BMG to Wisc so it would be cheaper to ship them both ways but not by much.If it where me I'd drive,even if I had to pay for it myself.There is no way I'd trust the airlines or the mail with all my shooting gear.

Lets see $150 for the "bigun" and $100-$150 for the other guns thats $250-$300(could be twice as much if its both ways), gas $2.50 per gal, about 15 mpg, if my maths right thats 1500-1800 miles, unless you're going to take the scenic route thru WI I think I'd drive and shoot what I really wanted to.
