I joined the forum here about a week ago when I stumbled on it looking for info on my tags this year. I have been a hunter all of my life, growing up on a small farm in Central Utah, and back then hunted mostly deer and pheasant. Now I'm in the Carson Valley in Western Nevada, but drew rifle tags for deer (22E) and cow elk (23L) in the Ely area this year. I have a sporterized Model 98 pre-WWII 8mm Mauser with a 4x fixed Japanese Tasco scope, that will be my back-up gun, and a new Marlin XL7 in .30-06 with a Bushnell Elite 4200 4-9x40 that will be my primary gun. Just got it bore-sighted and plan to go dial it in tomorrow! If anyone has any info on either of these areas, please let me know. Look forward to meeting you here in the forum.
