BM:You didn't accidentally happen to flex the hydraulics just to give your wife a lil thrill?

After 39 years of living with me she has had all the thrills she can handle ;D

It took me quite awhile but I've learned what she finds funny,bouncing 14 feet in the air isn't one of those things. :o

MR, pray that the wild boar never get up there. Their devastating.

They are pretty wide spread in Saskatchewan but locally we don't have them. I have talked to guys that can't combine are night because of the wallows in the fields.

Your work sounds like play Michael. ;)
I was wanting to play this weekend. But 2 strait days of freezing rain put a damper on that.
Do you ever have any cougar trouble with your cattle?
I only ask because I was watching A show today on cougars and they brought up livestock issues.
I haven't ever seen a cougar altho they are supposed to in the country. We did lose a colt one time and never found any sign so did wonder about a cat. I guess with the Elk around we prbably do have Cats. We have more game around then my Dad can remember, Mule deer, some White Tail, Elk, Moose, Beaver, Wolverine. There has been a wolf shot in the country a few years back, who know what else. The wild Boar are close but not here yet.

It wasn't that much fun to start as i helped the wife put up 2 more LED yard lights to help with calving. I'm so lucky she doesn't like to run the loader tractor so she lets me lift her up to change the light. ;D
 ;D  After coffee with Dad I take a load of alfalfa pellets out with the Power wagon to coax a herd of cows in closer for calving. I didn't get far before I had to shoot some gophers.I emptied one clip on the 10/22 reloaded and emptied that one again. I then remembered I had another clip so I grabber but it was empty :-[ :-[ so I figured I had better get going. Turns out most of the cows were 4 miles north of the house. They have been getting fed pellets so they trailed along pretty good.On my way back I saw 23 elk in the distance. To far for a decent phone picture. I did get lucky as I think I got all but 3 head into the calving pasture.About 200 head followed the old red dodge pretty well. :)

Be very careful of the whopping recoil from this rifle, even though your shooting from the left side. Could there be a chance of ocular damage to the right eye from the recoil?

I wonder if this rifle would be a candidate for Reduced Recoil Loads?  Still be a good up close camp gun.

Yep, Vanguards are made in Japan so that shouldn't be an issue. Oops, A post was deleted where someone mistakenly thought the Vanguards were made in the USA.

Now Iím not confused anymore. Thanks Terminator  :)

You're sure you aren't? ;) :)

Welcome to the Campfire. My daughter shoots  GH2 in 243 and sure likes it.

We need pictures. :)  Of the mule. :D

No Joke.  My Dad prepped me for deer hunting when I was maybe six or seven, with gopher hunting.  He would set me up in a low tree, or make a small "blind" for me near a gopher mound.  Set me up with his scoped Marlin 39.  He'd open the hole, and tell me to sit and wait, be patient, and the gopher will finally show up.  He'd go off and do some stuff outside and wait for the shot, to come check on me.  I would already be at the mound, with my "trophy" for him.  What a great experience and treasured memory to have, for a little boy.  MM

Many a prairie boy honed his sniper skill shooting gophers. Many with a old single shot Cooey with 22 shorts, a pail full for cheap.

Just about time here for them going to fine site my 300 wby and my 6.5 on them. Need to give them parachutes with both sometimes you can get 50 ft of air if hit right.

Here is the link to last years Big Game Guide for  last year.
You would be classed as Non-resident so would need a guide service on top of your tag.

Cool Video, hope you get that scope zeroed and take some more of those big ones.

Here's a large wooden hammer, this thing weighs 10 pounds 4 oz. and has a 31" handle. The head is 5 1/2" diameter. What would this be used for?
  It's a maul. Used for driving wooden fence posts ?

Could be for a serious game of Whack-A- Mole ;D
