    Ok I have been itching to tinker with loads for my 300 WM. . . Spring is taking too long to arrive so we just had to do some shooting today. Its kinda tough this time of year but you have to make due right?:cool:

    Here is a friend of mine touching off a few.

    Is anyone else fighting the weather like we are or has spring sprung?

    Man that's great! At least here the shooting bench only has about a foot around it and I can now see the bottom of the target boards. Haha.....I like that.

    I love it! I almost commented the other day on a recent dead coyote picture because there was mowable-ish grass growing. Crap I am still snow shoeing to coyotes.

    Man when I took my cold bore shot at 2000 yards this morning at 7:30am this is what my Kestrol 4000 told me:
    BP:29.71
    Alt:331 ft
    Temp:68
    Hum:93%

    I mowed my lawn 4 weeks ago and the Blue-bonnets are about to bloom at the end of the week in TX! I love my brief cold snaps we get periodicly down here but my hats off to you for getting to the range!

    You got that right :), The summers are what keeps us here.

    Rooster, It's good that you can relate, I don't have a working snowmachine so snowshoes for coyotes here too.

    We went down south to the "desert" a week ago where it is supposed to be dry to do some coyote hunting. Even there the snow had just started melting. We sunk a truck up to the axles in mud and spent the next two hours listening to coyotes howl all around us while we dug out.

    I am envious of all you guys that are basking in the sun.

    I love the pics!!!!!!! Hardcore shooters.

    I hunt that part of the country every fall. Great scenary but getting to be to many people at times in the high country.

    Still, if I could get a job and make a living there I would live there in a second.

    You are right about the people. Seems We have to ride horses deeper in the wilderness each year to get ahead of the crowds. But it makes it a real hunting experience FAIR CHASE. I may ever get a world class animal but I get nice ones and the hunt makes the trip not the Kill.
