Re: Drew my Wyoming Elk tag!

I'm hoping to do it without a guide and pay a trespass fee if I have too. I plan on doing a few scouting trips to the area before season starts. Also have been in touch with the BIologist for the area. Trying to do as much homework as I can. I'm hoping to put my new 6.5/284 to the test.

The 140 VLD. I have been getting good results with it. I have a Huskemaw on my custom Savage action built rifle and have been able to reach 700 yards.
