    Those Wyoming mulies are just a little bit bigger than an Oklahoma prairie dog so you shouldn't have any problems hitting them.

    Good luck and enjoy the trip.

    Sure hope BJ gets something to shoot in his gun.:):)

    Well, let's see...You might get away using factory 338RUM in the Edge, but I thinks the APS .270 is a different story if I recall correctly.

    Good luck. Post plenty of pics.

    You can find mule deer lying in the ditches along the road or at the Alcova campsite checkin station.

    Saw an albino Doe coming back from Kaycee on the backroads. No camera:eek: and in the city limits so all I did was watch her for a while. Went back with the camera to show the wife and daughter but the herd had moved on:( Just about got a nice 4X4 with the car a block from the house.
    Tis the season= the herds of deer and antilope are movein into town to avoid the herds of hunters out in the prairie :cool:
    Hope you guys figure out the ammo shortage as an MT gun aint much of a long range rig=quiet though:D

    Useing the 338 RUM in THE 338 Edge chamber will create a head space problem,will it not?? The shoulder is farther back on the 338 RUM

    Well were back, pics will be coming soon but dont get yer hopes up. BJ thumped a small one and i went dry. The ammo joke was referring to my lazy butt not getting any 270AM ammo loaded but we devised a little loading station inside the trailer we pulled. Anyway full write up and pics coming soon if BJ gets off his butt. Definantly a learning experince is the least i can say.
