The hunt is over. We had a great time. Mid 70s each day with 10-15% humidity. Got some new places to hunt.
Robert used a .223 AI XP with 40 gr. BTs & a 6mm International with 70 gr. BTs. I was concerned the .223 load wouldn't work in the 10-20 mph winds each day, but it did great,. Oh, the kids Dick saw shooting at "my place" didn't do so well. We killed 9 in 15 minutes right there.
I used my .22-250 rear grip XP with 50 gr. BTs, VMaxes, ZMaxes, BSTs & a .250 Sav. AI with 85 gr. BTs. All loads did well.
We hunted from 8AM to 6:30 PM daily with a very short lunch break.
The total...I guess we did OK for a couple of old guys- 312! That comes out to one chuck every 12 minutes for 4 days. My right thumb is numb from holding my binos so much and mine and Robert's left thumb has a 1/2" sore from griping our guns firmly. Guess that's the price a handgunner pays for doing his job.
Sorry, but photos won't transfer from photobucket. Other suggestions appreciated.
