Elk or Hog

The subject Sounds like one of my favorite lines form Jeremiah Johnson "Can't figure people down there eating hog when they could feed on elk" but anyway was just thinking about what me and my daughter are planing to hunt this year.For the last six years we have applied for a Kentucky bull elk tag with no luck but we will keep trying because it is the best shot we have at a world class Elk hunt on a low budget. We will find out earley May if not i have an outfitter lined up for a Texas hunt at a good price.His deal is a 5 day hunt for predators,hogs and javelina also included is a 140" or better whitetail for my daughter. Me and a friend went down 2 years ago for javelina. This guy has a honest operation we had alot of fun. So if we dont draw we still have a good hunt lined up. But that wont take place til earley December.I was trying to hold off before starting this topic but I am just wanted to talk hunting if I am not talking,Doing or planing I am just not happy I guess not happy is the wrong way to put it i think lost would be a better word. "not to mention the wicked light i already bought for the trip and scope. Now I am looking for a new rifle case for the airline trip I need one that will hold three guns it ant like i need it.Anyway I am all over the place thanks for listing.

Good luck on that, as Iv'e

Good luck on that, as I've seen plenty of two gun cases, but never one that would hold three. I've done a lot of searching and it doesn't look like there is such a thing for three long guns. If you fly, make sure and have plenty of extra insurance on your firearms, as it's amazing how they seem to turn up LOST!

I haven't seen a 3 rifle case

I haven't seen a 3 rifle case but have seen 4, 6, and 8 rifle cases. 

Just be prepared for sticker shock when you find a good quality one that is rated for airline abuse. 

What are you planning on doing with a extra rifle?  You can use the same one on a whitetail and the hog and while it may be a little bit overkill on a javelina why not use it. 

Or look at a new T/C Encore rifle where you can pick up a couple extra barrels and change them out.  A single shot rifle is a great thing to hunt with, I personally love hunting with a single shot T/C Contender and have shot javelina, deer, and elk with one. 

It would be a great excuse to pick up some new calibers.

More info

I guess a better explanation would help a 4 gun would work. The plan is we will be doing some duck hunting also my daughter will take a 2 gun with 1 rifle and 1 shotgun for her and i will do the same for me but i wanted to take my Ar for hogs at night it is not necessary but would be alot more fun exspeccily when they start running and it has a 40 round mag.I am taking a savage axis 223 which will work fine for hogs but it is my primary predator gun that i dont want to leave behind.
