What are your goals for rifle hunting in the 2008 season? My goals are simple. For deer size game, deer and blackbuck, I plan to shoot 1 larger than the one I shot last year, which was a 9 point whitetail deer with 21" spread. Not alot of mass, but a nice deer shot at 265 yards. I may also take a shot at 1,000 yards if circumstances present a good situation to take such a shot. Last year I shot a doe at 786 yards. I have a 338 RUM and a 338 Lapua plus a 7WSM all capable of such a shot. My local range only goes to 600 yards so 1,000 yard shot practice will be limited. The only chance to shoot 1,000 being at the deer lease, which is 360 mile away. I will take at least 1 trip before season to the lease and shoot , wind permitting, 1,000 yards. It blows a lot at the lease... I would be able to shoot from the same area I will hunt, so that is an advantage. With the price of fuel my hunts this year may be limited! So, what are your goals??
