I live not far from Central Washington in Boise, ID. The foothills north of town are grass covered and I have permission from a local rancher to roam his 36,000 acres. It is my favorite way to shoot. I roam the hills and valleys looking for game size rocks and vital area size rocks at all ranges and at all atitudes. I'm shooting up hill, down hill, across valleys etc. I can shoot at virtually any range I like, but I don't remember ever taking any shots longer than about 800 yards. It is a great experience and I am fortunate.
I had one of my sons come home this week after having been gone for two years and so today we went up and shot. He has never done this kind of shooting before. It was great to see him smile and laugh as he pulled the trigger on 600 yards shot and then after waiting for what seemed forever saw the powder come off of the rock he shot- even if the rock was four feet square. It was a great experience for us.
I''m glad to hear that others enjoy busting rocks the way I do.
