Re: homer Alaska checking in!

i gotcha. i'm busy on the boats most of the summer month's. but finding a place closer than kenai's snoeshoe seems to be difficult..

homer needs a range, or maybe i just need to find the right friends

    Hey,
    There are a few good and safe shooting areas around Russian Mission. These places are accessable by a skiff during the summer months, and by snowmachine during the winter months...good 500+ yards. A question for the alaskans..."what is your favorite caliber and why?"

    I’ve killed everything I hunt here with a 45 Colt, then went to a 460 Smith, haven‘t rifle hunted in years and years. But I’m a gunsmith and can tell ya 338 is the most common now, used to be 300WM or 300Wtby but everybody want’s a 338 now. 30-06, 303, 308 or something like is really all a guy “needs” here but what fun is that, don‘t tell my wife I said that ether! Now if I was to take a rifle back out it would be 7mmRUM for way long shots on goat and sheep.

    BTW I grew up near Chino Valley Arizona then spent way too long cooking to death in Glendale. Palmer since 2001 and never looked back!

    My second son finally shot my 300 Win. Mag. today. For years he used a 45-70, so far he bagged two moose in the past...now he has taken a taste of long range hunting... I hope i am able to hang on to my 300.
