The only reason BnG posted "why I don't shoot elk in the shoulder" is because he ain't carried a rig big enough to do it. Those pecker wood cartridges he lugs around leave a something on the table when it comes to dangerous game like elk & stuff.
Yep, a couple of seasons gone by w/no fur in the scope works on one's brain. 2 1/2 months to go. Should I live so long.
See ya'll this summer. Looking for a fun learning summer....
Even planning on making at least one of those Montana shoots. I'm already jotting down some good possible excuses.
Good luck Tikka. Bring home the bacon!
