Let's start talking this up now. We missed out on this years shoot due to schedules, etc.

I've got an August trip scheduled, but that's usually too hot to be out at our spot anyway.

What months/dates are good for everyone this year? I'm thinking maybe mid to late June would be good weather but not too hot.

Let's talk it up. What say you?

Mid to late June is doable for me. Would be nice weather... and we could take an excursion for prairie dogs if we wanted... I think we could scrounge up some alfalfa farmers somewhere.

How long does it take to drive from Tennessee to Oregon?

Some people are like Slinkys. Pretty much useless but still make you smile when you push them down the stairs.

There is no right way to do something wrong.

Not August. I'm going to be much busier in August so anything before will be better.

My training schedule has changed to where I get the end of Sept. off instead of the beginning. My end of May vacation is set by my training schedule as well.......something mid June might be doable if I move things around a bit. Best bet for my schedule is to set a date that works for the most people and let me try and work around it.  I have these two guys that come down and eat up a couple extra vacation days in the spring that I have to deal with first. :laugh:

That would be too cool to have you guys come out!

If so, I'd try to scout out some longer range stuff, possibly out to 1,000 yds.

As is, we can stretch it out to 400/425. It's still a challenge if we make the targets small enough :laugh:

About 30 hours.

With 3 drivers, that is 10 hours apiece.

If elk jerky is in the cards, we might have to just drive up and get you for the weekend, you could tell the wife you were kidnapped.

I have serious doubts. I know some old loggers that would swear off drinking, women, and tall trees if exposed to more than a sip or two of that stuff.
