    FIRST TIME DRAWING ELK TAG UNIT 9 Late Rifle

    There area few but not many good long range glassing spots. Once you get off the hill, you are down in the flat PJ and then still hunting to relocate em. Find some openings without a road and watch those openings very first and last light, and still hunt other areas during the day.

    10-22 Owners with scopes Step Inside

    For years, I had cheap 4x Tasco and Bushnells on a 10/22. Of course the wire reticles on two scopes broke. Parallax was a killer at short distances as they were set for 100 yards. I also had the $100 Cabelas rimfire scope and its reticle broke within 100 shots 😞 https://www.cabelas.com/product/hunting/optics/riflescopes/pc/104791680/c/104752080/sc/104535180/cabelas-caliber-specific-rimfire-riflescopes/1826665.uts?slotId=4 I now have this Tract https://www.tractoptics.com/products/riflescopes/22fire-3-9x40-bdc

    Fireplanes, what did you decide/purchase since your post 3 months ago? My post on "rifle for wife" may be appropriate is you are still looking.

    rifle for wife

    Perhaps a rifle like the Weatherby Camilla which is built for the stature of a woman. Is she right or left eye dominant? 7mm-08. To reduce recoil, use a lighter bullet like a 120gr in 7mm (120 Nosler e-tip, 120 Nosler Ballistic Tip, 120 Barnes TTSX) http://www.weatherby.com/vanguardr-camilla.html Savage discontinued their Lady hunter, but maybe you can find one on Gunbroker. https://www.savagearms.com/firearms/centerfire/hunter-series/11-lady-hunter The 6.5 Creedmoor seems to be the answer to all questions these days. There is a great choice in ammo, rifles too, just like the 7mm-08. Case capacities are near equal (and with 120g bullet in each, recoil would be near equal), and I would prefer the 16% larger frontal area of the 7mm. For a scope, you both would have to decide if she is going to dial turrrets or use a BDC type reticle. For a FFP with turrets under $1k, maybe a reliable scope like the SWFA 3-9 or 3-15 (watch for their Black Friday sale). or SFP Nightforce SHV 3-10 with illuminated forceplex reticle. https://www.sportoptics.com/nightforce-shv-rifle-scope-c611.aspx There are numerous second focal plane scope options with BDC. Doug at Cameraland can line you up with good prices and great service.
