Daugher has been preparing getting some range time in.  First 2 shots off her shooting sticks at 100 yards shooting a Thompson center compact in 7mm08.

how far can you shoot at machias range.  Would like to get her some shot at 200 but I don't know of anywhere local.

Bit of a drive from LS, but Plantation in South Bellingham runs out to 300 yards.

scouting who does that :yike:.  Haven't done any other than getting tips and pointers from the locals.  Have a plan of where we are going to start our adventures.  We'll be hunting for 9 days so hopefully we can find some cows.

You sure you know what elks look like right?  :chuckle:  Hope you have a great time and she shows dad how its done.
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.
