Nice article Shawn, sounds like there is always something to learn on every trip. I too have just learnt the check the zero rule, on a recent trip anything inside 250 yds was DRT but I was 2 MOA high on the longer shots. Won't make that mistake again!

Stu.

I learn something everytime I go afield. The tundra shooting was some of the toughest shooting I have ever done. First time the shooting positions were more of an issue than the atmo conditions.

I learned young to shoot RH rifles and only in the last 10 years gotten any LH rifles. Honestly I shoot a bolt rifle from prone position faster if it is RH, my hand never leaves the firing grip.

Re: Barren Ground Caribou Hunt By Shawn Carlock

Glad to see you liked your trip. I've been in northern Quebec for almost 20 years and it's all tundra. So yep a good place for long range hunting. Now getting ready to move south which I'm kind of scared to do. It's going to be a huge change. Plus will have to learn different hunting methods.
