    Hey Joel,
    My in-laws are between West Bingham and Genesee.
    Are you familiar with the area? I was checking out some back roads
    off of Rt.49 outside of Knoxville. Pretty rugged for my two wheel
    drive pickup. Great country out there, I guess we'll continue
    to search for a good spot.

    I'm very familiar with that area. I hunt the whole top tier of Tioga and Potter. I have more farms than I have time to hunt on. That area is about the best around for long range groundhog hunting.
    Headed up there next week some fun.

    Sounds good bro'.... I have to venture out on my own, which I am not
    to keen on cause' huntin' on my own isn't good to do. My wife doesn't like to go... just on rides... my pap in-law doesn't like to go out to long, he
    says he's getting old. LOL I only get a saturday to venture out.

    The wife and I say we want to get a place of our own someday...
    then I'll be able to get down and hunt.

    Any places you willing to reveal to hunt?:eek: please..

    Any pics of your rifle and chucks you have taken? I like your dads bi-pod table! I take it you guys handload.

    Since my Dad got into this long range game a few years ago, I have taken a back seat on the shooting. He's 81 years old and I do what he did for me when I was a young boy. I find the game for him to shoot.

    You're welcome to join us when we go, but we always hunt during the week.

    Too many custom rifles to list that we take, but here are a few that my Dad has claimed from me. .240 Wby and .284 Baer, both wearing my stocks of course. Both pictures taken in Potter.

    these are great looking rifles, the laminated stocks really bring out the best in both! I commend you for bowing out to your respected father, allowing him to do the shooting. Its good to see.

    WOW...

    You have a Savage action.. cool. I have a Savage 11 factory and shoots
    3 and a half inches high at 300 yards, with a handload, .243 win. Wish I
    could check it longer range. My rifle club is ,eventually gonna make a 600
    yard range.

    I used to have a extra heavy bull barrel on a '09 argentine action chambered in the .243. Shouldn't have gotten rid of it.

    Yea, I would love to join you fellas, before the end of the summer.:D
    I have a friend off of Rt.49 near Northern Potter High School.
    I could stay at his place for a couple of days and hook up.gun)

    You know, "Hunters Supply", Knoxville? John Herman?

    He said there's chucks at some soybean fields off Rt.49 across from
    "a purple house", ;) you know it? WAAAY back yonder.
