    Big gun has a Nightforce and the other rifle on the tripod has a higher end Vortex I believe it's the Razor HD. I've had very good luck with Vortex and they have the best warranty and customer service I've ever seen. Sean
  3. Daughter gets it done in New Mexico

    Thanks a bunch guys it's much appreciated. Just got out of mountains into cell range helped pack out some more elk. I hope all of you that are hunting back home get a great buck. I'll be out with the youngest one when I get back she wants to hunt with Dad now. LOL no complaints from me.
  4. Daughter gets it done in New Mexico Well my 11 year old daughter hit the lottery and drew a New Mexico rifle elk tag this year. We started her hunt Saturday and were done at 10 am. We got to see and pass on several bulls before she killed a nice 6 by 7. Things are always a little harder when hunting with kids so the perfect set up and situation was needed. We located the bull bedded under a ceder bush and was able to get her set up in the prone for an easy 258 yard shot with my 338 Edge. Yup a little tiny 80 pound girl behind a 14 pound 338 edge shooting a 300 grain Berger with 90 grains of H1000. LOL She can smoke them as far as you can see them with that set up. She hit him square in the chest and he never flinched. Lights out total pass through head to rear. I got some pictures of her set up before the shot since we watched the bull for 25 minutes before she killed him. It was a great hunt and one neither of us will ever forget.

    A little long range dry fire practice no live ammo in area. (that's why they are close). Keep them together so I can watch trigger pull.

  7. DIY Alaska Moose Hunt

    You can hunt moose, black bear, wolf, and caribou without a guide or kin. The powers that be in Alaska won't let you hunt grizzly, brown bear or sheep without a guide. Which is why it cost 18 grand to kill a brown bear with a guide that if allowed I could get dropped off and kill one for under 4k. As for now I hope the state never changes the rules for moose.
  8. Weekend Youth Hunt

    Sitting under some big oaks on edge of uncut corn field. Just had two small bucks walk past at ten yards. They are lucky it wasn't me hunting when I was 14 LOL, she says she wants a bigger one. South wind and crap temps may make that tough. Having fun anyway Good luck to everyone who is out.
  9. Weekend Youth Hunt

    Weekend Youth Hunt Anyone getting out for the youth deer hunt this weekend? My oldest hit 14 this year so we will probably get out. Going to be way to warm but will see how it goes.

  13. DIY Alaska Moose Hunt

    DIY Alaska Moose Hunt My dad and I just got back from a DIY moose hunt in the Yukon Delta on the westside of Alaska. Had a great trip, the area we got dropped off in was loaded with moose. I called in over 15 different bulls and we each killed a bull. Found a couple great bulls 60 inch plus but way to far from water or camp to kill. Having to pack it out on the bone on your back in swamp and tundra limits your carrying distance. Had some wolfs near camp on day one but with the no hunting on the same day you fly in rule they got a pass. Killed my bull from camp across the lake at 700 yards with my 338 Edge and called my dad's right into camp which made for a nice and easy packing job. We had bulls walk into camp almost every night which will get your attention when they start grunting and destroying trees. LOL. Was an awesome trip, hard work but we'll worth it.
  14. What powder in Federal Premium?

    Not sure but I'd start with H4350 and 168 grain Berger VLD. If you stick with the Noslers I'd still use the H4350.
  15. Big Black Bear

    425 pounder from northern Ontario was a treat to get out, my daughter was 8 when we killed this one together.
