I have a buddy who will be traveling overseas instead of hunting this year and isn't really that interested in it anyways. We got him a Remington semi-auto .308 at a gun show and it shoots pretty good. I'll try to contact him and get back to you.
Location: From Grand Junction CO, stationed in Arizona
I ended up getting a rifle for him yesterday. We picked up a weatherby vanguard .308 in the youth model. Topped it with a Nikon pro staff 3x9 glass. More money than I was planning on spending but that’s ok because I will be able to put the adult model stock on it as he grows up.
Hunting can be slow and frustrating if Mother Nature throws a warm hunting season at you. But things can take a drastic turn for the better with the onset of a cold snap. Whether you get snow or just a good, prolonged cold front, the hunting can improve on a dime. But cold whether can also make certain parts of the hunt more tedious. Here are some things to keep in mind when your prayers for cold weather finally pay off.
