This is my rifle that I recently got. It is as stated in the title a Ruger M77 Hawkeye 30-06 with Trijicon 3-9X40 scope. I added a detachable stoney point bi-pod and had the barrel CeraKote black also.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
