2019 Big Hill
Hey, It’s the height of the cabin fever season here in beautiful, but cold, Wyoming. Has anybody heard anything about the 2019 Big Hill shoot schedule?

I was planning on it that weekend, thanks! I know I'm starting to complain everyday now that the temp is below zero, but just looking at weather bug this morning we're a balmy +7 and you're still -18. 180 miles south of you is all - I feel better now!!!

RE: 2019 Big Hill
I think most of us are walking window to window or going out and freezing out eyelashes shut or trying to feel the trigger with numb fingers.
We had record lows way below zero and snow. It was up in the mid 40's and by night it was below zero. Rain with the temp below freezing that put thick layers of ice down then turn to snow a couple hours later.
I had to put the snow blower on the tractor because using the blade I ran out of room pushing it.
I was going to shoot the postal yesterday but I didn't last long enough to shoot it after bore sighting the scope and hitting paper, had a couple shots go off before I wanted couldn't feel the trigger......getting soft I guess Confused
but it sure is pretty out Tongue

Take care friend,

Jim

... Must be one of those new over and under rifles... though I thought the barrels would be the same length. May have to shorten that lower tube a little Tongue
... Well I'm planning to be at Big Hill on the 22nd & 23rd of June... so I hope someone else is there to show me how its done. Confused
... Got to say...after about two months of 95-105 degree temperatures... that photo of snow looks mighty appealing. Wink

rgds... Gavin.

RE: 2019 Big Hill
Gavin I would be glad to share that snow and the cold that goes with it. But I sooner take what's in the picture than the 105 stuff Smile

Good to hear Mark... although I thought I had that side of my technique covered. Wink
