You don't say... I did not know that the .300 Remington Ultra Mag had enough power to even hunt pronghorn . Yeah, I would say that it is more than capable of that task. That thing is not going to have any problems with anything on North America and if it was legal, I do not think that it would have any problem disbatching the world's biggest animals... if the right bullets are used.
My family has land just outside of Homer and yes, we have connections up there. I was not able to make it up there this year because of my internship... I missed it. I actually met a hunter down here that was from Homer. He had come down here to hunt elk in Colorado and pheasants in one of our states to the east. I want to say that he mentioned hunting moose up there this year but that he did not get one. If I was in his shoes I would not miss any chance to hunt up there. Its a small world for sure.

i think i'll go and hunt the se coast in the next few years for black bear. or brown bear, if i make some connections.

December/January will pull deer in from some distance away to feed on the easy to get to food.
I killed one of my nicest bucks off of a very small patch of soybeans that was left after rains created a...
