-> Reduction of nonresident participation from the current 60/40 split to 70/30 or even 80/20 (Residents/Nonresidents)! I'm not sure what is motivating this proposal. The DOW has long said the elk population is over-objective. In-state hunter numbers hold steady year-over-year, if you elminate even more NR's the DOW will have even fewer hunters to work the elk every year.
-> Go back to a Random Draw only. Eliminate the preference point system.
-> Remove OTC tags completely for elk across the entire state!
There are some big changes being proposed and whether you are for against, you all need to let the DOW know. Contact info is on the page linked above or go to a public meeting.

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...
