and boy was is fun i just got back about 5 mins ago i haven't even unpacked yet. and like what has already been said i did make a 452 yard shot (people keep leaving out that "2") with my 204 ruger handi to the best of my knowledge its the longest shot with a handi, although a lot of people where popping them out a lot father with bolt actions. for me my total was probably about 500 dogs and like warf said (yes warf i'm bragging) i got 12 doubles and 2 triples. the trip was one heck of a trip i loved every minute of it . how could i not if there was anything that could make me just a little more happy wes did it, he is the best guide a guy could ask for and we are all lucky to know him and even if he don't think so he did deserved that rifle we bought him (which i might add he did kill quite a few dogs with). the people wes had helping out where also so the best you could ask for , even if Dan sound's like a canadian (go ahead tell him that, if he threw in a "a" here and there he would fit right in) even though they seem to be quite a prankster (they got a pic of what looks like me having quite a good time(still waiting to see that deadeye hint hint) they are still a good bunch of guys and i can not wait until next year!!


if you are all thinking about what all this talk of a rifle for wes is : we all chipped in and bought wes a 204 ruger handi rifle it was kept quiet with coded pm's(warf :? ) so that he wouldn't find out and it worked good he had no idea nd his face was priceless when i gave it to him.


guys it was great to finally meet all of you !! i can't wait until next year when i get to see you all again. there was some of you that i didn't get to spend as much time with maybe next year we can make those bs'ing time a little longer.

Thanks for the kind words Mitch.

I had as much fun taking you guys out and spotting for you as you did shooting.

Mitchell was popping them a loooong ways out there with the .204 Ruger.

Did you pull any of those yet?

Thanks for the report Mitchell and that was great thing you all did for Wes. The fact you guys could keep it a secret and do all the planning without him (or anyone else!) knowing about it was outstanding!!! Great "longest shot with a Handi" also and congratulations to you Mitchell....<><.... :grin:

Mitch is right; Wes and his friends are a great bunch of guys. You could not have asked for better leadership.

When presented the rifle from Mitch, Wes was speechless at first; it was obvious that he was touched. One of those moments in life that you remember.

Bolt-actions? What bolt-actions?

Mitch is right about spending not being able to spend more time with some of guys. We could have planned better and tried to be with different groups of guys during the shooting sessions. I would have got more photos of different guys that way.

Wes said, “I had as much fun taking you guys out and spotting for you as you did shooting.” Hard to believe based on how good a time DJ and I had.

For the guys not there: I heard a lot of talk about you, wishing that you were there. Especially Mac, Quick and MSP.

Another thing, Mitch (Mitchell) is a fine young man. From his posts I got the wrong impression at times, but I was wrong.
