    Sighting in your rifle

    Anyways, kind of embarrassed about asking this question, but anyways what power level do you typically use when zeroing in your rifle at 100 yards? Kind of struggling here with he season approaching and have been switching back & forth between low power & high power with no consistent accuracy...

    Wyoming Unit 81

    Okay guys, heading out to unit 81 in a month. Got my x6b in Ca burned to hell. According to my research but still not sure. Is the SE section of this unit better than the NE section? Know the NW is Wilderness pretty much. Any intel is acceptable via pms thx in advance TD

    Looks like X6A & X6B are toast

    Finally drew an X6B tag & will now turn it back in. Dixie & Beckworth fires has pretty much burned the whole place up. Feel sorry for everyone that had to evacuate & hopefully they don't loose their homes to this disaster. Over 800,000 acres burned, probably be over a million before it is all...

    Smoke Phase Turkey

    Saw this yesterday morning pulling into the jobsite. These turkeys congregate in the morning in the cemetery (their safe zone) next to the jobsite after flydown & this 1 hen stuck out like a sore thumb. Never seen 1 before.

    Wyoming Elk Unit 118

    Its getting down to crunch time. My partner and I have 19 combined points for Elk. Tired of paying the cash cow and this could be our last hunt together because we are in our mid-60's. Don't have a enough points to get into a Blue Zone per MRS, but only into a Green Zone. Any opinions on this...

    MOA at different elevations

    This kind of passed my mind today thinking about CDS scopes and MOA changes at different elevations. I am located in Calif and prior to my last visit to Wyoming in 2017, sited in our rifles at about 100' above sea level at 200 yards zero. When we went to Wyoming antelope hunting at about 6000'...

    Leupold CDS suggestions

    I recently installed a Leupold VX-3i 4.5-14X40 CDS on my 300 RUM which I plan to use on a future elk hunt in Wyoming (possibly next year). My partner and I have 19 combined PP's and are considering about LE units 38 or 39. Before I order the 1 free CDS dial, what elevation and temperature...
