    I live out in SLC, UT and would love to go on something like that to get the experience and knowdledge. Not an old-timer knowledgable shooter, but wanting to learn all that I can to become the best shot I can.

    Checked out the web site. Very cool and prices seemed cheep. Regular round of golf costs more than this. ? to the one that shot the course, animals look life size, can you emphasize on the make up of the target. looks like the vitals painted red? did they move when hit or just clang. What gear would you recommend? Other than rifle and ammo of course. It seemed there were only certain days available.
    As for living next to golf course "shooting golfers" LMAO:D

    Just got an pm from motrapper. Things are lookin' fairly good for Saturday.

    I'll have my drop chart finalized with these puny 150 Ballistic Tips out to 1K by this evening. I'm looking for a real LRH experience.;)

    Equipment list:
    Handheld weather station
    Shooting mat/gun case/drag bag
    Canopy for shooting mat.
    Bipod/carry system
    Tools-allen wrenches/screw drivers/cleaning rod/trowel
    Rifle
    Drop Chart
    LRF
    Poly bead bags
    Angle indicator
    Spotter and tripod
    Bullet cooler and ice. Temps will be in the 80 to 90s

    I detest ATVs, they clutter the outdoors, we'll see if they allow use of my Habitat Invasion Vehicle-Carrier.:rolleyes: That would be a Suzuki Sidekick with Bully Dog stickers. Any place it won't take me, I should be walking.

    Am I forgetting anything?:D
