    How long between stands?

    After reading a couple other threads it got me to thinking. We like to give stands at least a month between sets. Especially if we have done any shooting. I was just curious how long of a break you guys give your spots before calling again?

    I got a new Rem700 .243 for fathers day to use on predators and deer. A couple weeks ago I called in and shot my first coyote with it at 305yds.

    Looking for a new predator rifle!

    I am looking at getting a new rifle for predators. I really like the Savage model 10 in .243 or .22-250 and have also looked at a couple other Savages. I just wanted to know what some of you guys would recomend. I was leaning towards the .243 so I could also use it for blacktails here in CA.
