Say when and where for next year and I'll be there... I finally finished my tour of duty with my Nat'l Guard unit and can finally commit to dates and stuff without the fear of being called back to service....My .300 Tomahawk is itching for some action...
Hey, I'm new to the forum and didn't see your first message. Good buck btw, I will be going to texas next christmas and plan on using a .270 weatherby, I want a deer and will also try and get a turkey or goat. The ranch is west of Dallas, where do you hunt??
Mine is in Rocksprings, TX. About 70 miles east of Del Rio. What ranch are you going to? I have deer and more **** turkey than we want. I just can't can't get any folks to hunt them (even for free).
On a different thought, I think hunters are a dying breed though. I hear everyone complain about the cost of hunting in Texas, or anywhere else for that matter, yet people don't really want to hunt as much as they want to make excuses or complain. I have made the above offer two years in a row now on two different message boards and had a few people make contact initially and even a few phone calls, only to never be heard from again. Are people that paranoid about the internet, or do people just want something to complain about?
Who knows, oh well, hope everyone is having a good deer season.
Unfortunately, I'm still a university student, but if your offer is still valid in a couple years, I'll be glad to get in touch. I think people's fear of the net is the main reason you've had no takers....getting my dad to call a south african ranch I found on the net is like asking to him to hand out the credit cards....BTW do you manage the ranch for trophies, or is it a cattle ranch that you shoot on sometimes? What calibre did you use on that deer? I plan on using a .270 weatherby when I go, (my dad went this year, but passed on a bunch of 6-8 pointers and ended up with a turkey (185yrds))
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
