Re: Oregon

Yes that would suck! I love it here with all the.BLM and NF to hunt, drawing a tag is the hard part.
it took 3 years to get an Elk tag and then it was my 5th choice. Now that sucked. I still haven't.drawn a Deer tag in four years. So I started traditional bow.hunting last season. I forgot how much fun that was. Didn't get.anything but still had a great time.

    Hunting for Elk coyotes bear and cougar and the mighty sagerats, I will do long.range, but deer I'm going to bow hunt for now.
    I just started long ranve.shooting. Before I got the Striker my long range was 100 yards with my .44 mag Super Blackhawk hunter. But now that I have.rhe striker I can shoot out to 300 yards and hope to get out to 1000 yards by the end of summer. I don't think I would shoot at critter out that far except coyotes. I have 2 barrels for the striker one in .308win and one in .243 win. I'll use the .308 for elk and the .243 for coyotes.
    I started handgun hunting about 15 years ago and got hooked on it. It's a blast to hunt with a handgun. I still use the .44mag if I'm hunting in close quarters like calling in bears. What a thrill that is!

    It is a real kick in the pants kind of fun. I called in a Blk Bear that squared 6 feet. Very Beary exciting. I had him stuffed standing on his hind legs like he's looking around. He is my pride and joy and something to brag about. LOL
