I spent the day on some of my new hunting "permission" (as you guys call it) shooting prairiedogs. This was my rig that I used to get out to the hills to shoot.
The pack strapped on the back carried ammo, a snake-bite kit, water, some beef jerky and gumdrops, a flashlight and some nylon cord. The front back is tools. Lashed to the carrier is a camera tripod with a foam rest on top. In practice, I shoot sitting side saddle on the seat, resting the rifle on the tripod. (Yes, I don't use tripods for big game. They are fair game for prairidedogs) The rifle is my new Thompson Center single shot in 5mm Remington Rimfire Magnum.
I took 17 dogs out to 170 yards, used 21 shots. Amazingly, the last miss was round 20 at 50 yards! Round 21 fixed that bit of over confidence!
This is where I was shooting. No cell phone reception but the GPS on the handle bars hit on 9 satellites!! ~Muir
