Hello all.... I've used you guys for years when doing research, but never been apart of this or any forum before so this is all new to me lol. The knowledge here is incredible, and I'm excited to be apart of the group. I'm 35 and live in the western IL, my knowladge for whitetails and archery is 10 fold to my western hunting, and long range shooting. I'm green as grass, but here to learn. I'd love to someday punch paper or shoot steal out to maybe that 800 or 1000 yrd range, and get into reloading. But my main goal is to just be more efficient and stretch my hunting range. I've got a Savage LRH 300 min mag that shoots pretty good with stock ammo. I'm getting some new glass anyday Leupold VX-5HD 3-15x44mm is my plan, I just can't decide between the firedot or boone and crockett radical. With a Mule deer hunt coming up this fall it's time to get shooting! Hope everyone is well!
