I am all about Deer, Elk, Bear, Kitty cats, yotes, Grouse, been wanting to try turkey hunting but just have not had the oppurtunity yet. and this all is done in the state of Washington. although i have hunted in Oregon when i lived there. we would head up to the sled springs area for deer and elk. Love it over there.
Our licenses in California start on July 1st and the first season that is open for me is rabbits. So I usually start off with a couple of rabbit hunts followed by archery deer, doves, quail, general (rifle) deer season, 2nd archery season and band tail pigeons, then more quail and rabbits until the end of January. That's it until the end of March when spring turkey kicks in.
Pigs are available year-round and I think this is finally the year I break down and go after some fresh pork!
I always have my eye open for an opportunity at taken down a wiley coyote but haven't sealed the deal yet in Cali.
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...
