    We are kicking off our fall with Milligan Brand Outfitters in New Mexico this weekend. One of our favorite hunts because it's early and a great place to test equipment and skills. We'll be posting pics tommorow night if we have some luck.

    Stay tuned!

    We've had a great day in some beautiful country. I'll get the long one out of the way. This is Patrick Hines with a nice goat he took at 1009 yards. Patrick has owned our rifles for a few years and has taken a bunch of animals with them. He guides full time for Milligan Brand in the fall and gets a lot of opportunities to stretch things out as they are knowledgable and open to long range hunting.

    He was using a 264 Win Mag with our 140 VLD in our new stock with a custom camo job.

    This is nicest one in camp so far. David Mayo took him at 342 yards with a 264 Win Mag - 140VLD. Dave is local hunting buddy that owns a few of our scopes and just took delivery of his full rifle system. We broke some rocks at 768 yards with it the day before the hunt with a couple ranchers who had a blast.

    Here's Craig Carlson and his son Boomer with Craigs nice antelope. He used a 243 with a 105VLD at 343 yards. Craig is part of the GreyBull team and he and Boomer have been racking up some impressive hunts with the system.

    Boomer got behind the trigger later in the day. He took this one at 286 yards with the same rifle as his Dad.

    Jose Rosillo from Mexico was in camp. Jose has hunted all over and shot with us for a couple hours before the hunt to get familiar with the rifle and how the scope works. He took this nice goat @ 322 yards with a 264 Win Mag and the 140 VLD. He'll be topping off one of his rifles with the scope when he gets home. Thanks Jose!

    Our long time friend Jay Flohr from Sidney, NE held out until the end looking for a 17" that had been roaming the ranch. He gave us the slip so Jay filled the last tag in camp with this guy at 400 yards as the sun went down on his last day. Jay was shooting a 264 with the 140gr in our 10# rifle with the new stock in green.

    Great goats!!!! Milligan is a great guy, I hunted on one of his properties several years ago for elk. He has some very good guides. Patrick has an outstanding personality.
