Beautiful country and an awesome specimen!

What caliber is the camo cannon?
The hanging bag was our food, we kept it up there to keep the bears and other critters out of it, it was mostly just freeze dried stuff (mountain house meals, etc...) but we were in the middle of Griz country and didn't want to take any chances.

It is some of the most beautiful country in the world, amazing experience!

The desert camo beast is my Barrett model 99 50 BMG, we had it set up in a secondary camp at 9000 feet overlooking a burn area....didn't use it, ended up shooting my elk with the 30/06 at 300 yards up on top around 10,000ft elevation, Our main camp was about 8200 feet, so we definitely put on some miles/climbing on that trip!

I do when I bring the Barrett, I don't know if youve ever been around a 50 BMG when it goes bang, but it will clear your sinuses!

No sir, you are incorrect, the only mention of electronics on a weapon is for bows, Night vision equipment is not legal and it is not legal to project a beam of light from your rifle, but this is a BORS system it simply takes the place of your top turret and rather than dialing MOA or MIL's on your scope, you range your target and dial the top turret until the yardage is displayed on the heads up display above the eye piece on your scope. It compensates for barometric pressure, temperature and the angle of the shot.

I don't run it anymore as I found it to be fairly accurate out to about 800 yards, but beyond that I had to "add yardage" to my actual range to the target to connect, so I figured if I had to keep track of that I may as well be getting dope in MOA and logging it in my book. I think if a guy was better at manipulating ballistic programs that you could play with the b.c of the bullet you entered, muzzle velocity, etc. and get a more accurate result, but I become easily frustrated with such bull ****. Good luck this fall!

Thanks for clearing that up Hognuts. I was pretty sure I just read the same thing as you and only read where it said light gathering or NV devices and electronics on bows was illegal.

You can give Deadwood Outfitters a call. They offer a variety of hunts in Idaho.
The Carter's are salt of the earth, good folks.
Tell em' TJ Ewing said hi. I rode for the TVCC rodeo team with their daughter Erin.
