Just got back from a ‘mixed bag’ weekend on the farm. Had to catch a day or two of pheasant hunting, opening day of plains deer, tune in a friends prairie dogging rifle and spend a day bustin pds.
Pheasant hunting was just that, spent a lot more time hunting and no time shooting. Seems pheasants had a rough winter last year and did not rebound well in that part of the country.
Deer hunting was an overwhelming success . My older sister and I both got our deer from the same herd within about a mile of each other. Rumor has it she made an awesome shot at 190 yds. but I was still cleaning mine when she shot so I couldn’t witness it. Along with those two deer my brother in law and his boys all got deer…his youngest boy shot a beautiful 4x5 mule deer for his first ever deer kill. No doubt that will never be forgotten.

Went out there with a buddy and he had just bought a new Remington SPS in 22-250. We needed to dial that thing in and give it a workout….we did that. Had the gun sighted in in about 4 rds and from that point we went to torment the prairie dogs. Shot about 200 rds and I am sure we were over 85 % hits so we did a little damage. The SPS was very impressive shooting factory ‘white box’ ammo it was putting five inside a tight little group that made for headshots way out there. There is a whole pile of little dogs out there that “took one for the team” so to speak. The dozens of hawks flying overhead were in full approval.

About the only thing we didn’t have time for was some coyote calling but it was obvious there were plenty out there. At the end of the day we were pretty well used up.
