Re: Idahoans sound off.

Chuck,
That's the only rifle I have like that. I do have one other custom that is made from a 1917 Winchester action, Douglas barrel, blueprinted with custom trigger work and custom made glass bedded stock in a 30-338Winchester Wildcat. My others are Remington 25-06, CZ550 .22-.250, Ruger MK II in .223, .22-.250 and .338 Win Mag. My 17HMR is a Savage. I have many .22s, couple of muzzle loading rifles and pistols and quite a few miscellaneous shotguns and pistols. I've sold most of my firearms the last few years to help pay for med bills and the custom rifle. I've still got a couple listed for sale that I don't use anymore. I'm trying to get down to just what I enjoy shooting and loading for. I'm probably quite a lot older than you and have been shooting almost all my life. I got my first Idaho hunting license in July of 1958 and still have it.

I'm sorry! What would prompt such a down grade in habitat? Hunger, I suppose.

Re: Idahoans sound off.

I grew up in north Idaho, then lived in Boise for a while. Moved away in 2001. Worst decision i have ever made hunting wise. I hate having to draw just to hunt deer and only get 1 week to do it. I go back every year to visit family in the summer. I sure miss north Idaho.

Re: Idahoans sound off.

Lewiston here making a holler. it sucks trying to find good spots to shoot even with all the farm ground around. be nice to have something permanent and close. 1000 yd is awesome and great practice for hunting. would like to put on a good fun shoot again like my buddies and i used to with all kinds of different targets and shooting positions and yardages.

Thanks for the warm welcome Roy!

Yep it pretty much was a matter of economics. Now only if I could win the lottery, I would pack up and move to Mackay, Idaho.
