 Got some ammo loaded for it but work and other things get in the road. Was at work in camp in northern alberta from dec 15 to mar 27 with only about 12 days off in between. Now got time off but snow is still very deep here and would'nt be much fun.

 BUT i will get it done. Eventually.....LOL

For sure I will let you know: Right now we still have lots of snow and very few backroads are open unless they are a main road or a school bus route. The coyotes are hauling deer down and I cant even get around to smoke a few yotes with my 338. I'm afraid our local deer numbers are really gonna be in bad shape.

 

 

 I should mention that this rifle has a Vortex 6.5X20X50 scope on it, so maybe once i use it i can let people know what my opinion is on the Vortex, up until now i have been Leupold
