It seems like getting nonresident tags out west is becoming nearly impossible to come by. Get in line, buy numerous points, wait some more, takes 3 points, you get 3 points then it takes 4, then 5,6,7,8,9... Wyoming seems the worst, I've got friends that have given up on that state even with 8 points. It's a money scheme, they take our money along with our dreams.

It's a shame the residents don't realize that nonresident license sales support over 1/2 of the local game commission budget. when we stop buying the over priced tags they will have to make it up. I just applied for Elk tag over 700 and you have to pay when applying without knowing when the season is and they keep the money for months. getting ridiculous.

If Weatherby started building these again, I would have to buy one.

If you hear of Weatherby making another run of these rifles I would suggest you immediately get ahold of a dealer that will be issued a couple and pre-pay him for them.That's the only way you are going to get one or two on a limited run.They will never hit the retail shelves.All were bought already in the 1st run.I'm sure a second run would be the same way.

As I've stated here before,it was a no brainer to buy one of these rifles at $799 to $899,because the same Anschutz rifle was selling like hot cakes for the same amount and they had really plain wood and were just a blah blah looking 22.Weatherby's were in fancy Walnut stocks with fancy grain and figure and high gloss finish.They would have sold out at $1299 at the time IMO.

I would order 1 the second I heard of it. I bought the 17HMR version with the thought of getting the 22 next, but was too late they sold out.

Great story and congratulations on a great trophy. I hope 1 day i can make it to a hunt in Texas. Running short on years though. LOL but you never know. I mad it to Wyoming this year though no success other than the fact I made it there and hunted hard, Just bad timing.

There is a very interesting story that occurred recently.  It involved a female hunter with her husband and an Outdoor Life writer, Aram Von Benedikt.  I'll let you all Google the story, but the basics are that both parties probably took some shots at game much further than they should have and a dispute over the mule deer buck ensued. 

I get the impression that Mr. Von Benedikt was trying to get some kind of deer "grand slam" and was bound and determined to fill his tag.  Unfortunately, the whole situation ended with Outdoor Life parting ways with Aram Von Benedikt. 


Great read. Amazing what a large set of antlers can do to one's reputation  in such circumstances. I was just in Wyoming 2 weeks ago hunting and had no success but would not have taken a 700 yard shot if i had seen the buck of my dreams . We should be better hunters than that.

And a big price reduction on some of their Element shotguns.

300 discount on some models. nothing to sneeze at.

Geart reminder, ALWAYS check EVERYTHING before you shoot. We all get complacent at times.
