Thanks man, I was just about to post the same thing. I didn't draw my 1st season either sex tag, but I got the cow tag in the same area. That way I can at least hunt with the rest of the guys. Now I've got to wait until the deer draw to finalize my elk AND deer plans.
By the way, if any of you did not draw, you can check the drawing summary when it comes to figure out what the leftover list will look like. The number of tags left will be in the lefthand corner under current balance.
Me and my dad drew second choice cow muzzle tags and uncle drew a bull muzzle tag. Me and dad got our points for bull tags next year. Hoping to draw a muzzle buck tag to go with the cow. We'll see, excited none the less.
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
