    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.

    Welcome, MDEnce, not only to Nevada but also to Long Range Hunting.

    I live in Carson City and to my best knowledge I'm the only one that likes

    geargrinder. :D

    Thanks

    Yeah, I'll be checking out Mt. Grafton. Got some leads in 231 too.
    Not sure I want to swap barrels (yet) but if I do I'll let you know.

    Thanks for the welcome to Nevada, but actually I've been in Nevada all my adult life (except for the 4 years I was in CA for school), so I've been here for 19 years. I've been in the Carson Valley for the last 9 years (Vegas before then).

    BTW, I like geargrinder too (so far). :D

    That's good!

    He really is a good, honest, good willing, likable family man. Just about anyone
    that gets to know him would like him, I just love messing with him. He is the
    closest thing I have to a buddy. He is a Civil Engineer, PE, for NDOT and he is
    the same likable guy I met when He was not a Civil Engineer, PE.

    Enough!

    Great Hunting and keep us posted!

    Being nice to me isn't going to get your rifle finished any sooner.:D

    BTW MDence, I'll be hunting just north of you in 111-113 during the early hunts.

    If I may ask? Is your last name Ence? I knew some folks with the last name Ence when I lived in Las Vegas. Bonnie and Duane.

    Now, ss7mm is not building anything for me. :D I have never met him face to
    face but I'm proud to call him my friend. I have read almost all of his posts if
    not all of them, we have had some electronic communication back and forth and something tells me he is the kind of guy you can trust him with
    your life. I do not feel that way for too many folks, not even close,
    but I do know LongRangeHunting.com does have a bunch of just fine quality
    folks. Makes me feel good to be able to say that and mean it from the bottom of my heart!

    Thanks - I will.

    And I won't hold that PE thing against him (seems that 1/2 the guys I know are PE's - Thanks Don Bently)

    Well good luck to you too then.

    Yes, you may ask. Yes, my last name is Ence. And yes, I know Bonnie & Duane too. Bought my first house out by them, and we are related, distantly (Our great-great grandfather's were brothers)
