I’m sorry to hear that too.
On the bright side the 270 and 243 are both outstanding calibers to have in the shooting lineup.

I have to admit I miss my 243.

@jeffing65 THE 243 IS A GREAT ALL ROUND GUN LITTLE OR NO RECOIL AND EVEN WITH THE SUPPRESSER ON IT ITS LIGHTER THAN THE 270 BUT I LIKE THE 270 JUST AS MUCH

Good luck with the hunt, Kieran. Time alone in the woods is good therapy.

Frustration with your German mistress? :grinning:

That’s sweet!! The Big Boy is a nice one. :+1:

Where is he, on a scale of 1 - 10 for average size, from small to big?
I’m guessing 7 - 7+, or maybe a little better?

I went out yesterday evening, walked a little bit of the canyon rim, and looked down on a spot I usually get to by boat on the river, then walk up into.
It’s a hidden little bowl up along the canyon wall, that can’t be seen from down on the river, and you would never know it’s even there, if you don’t hike up to it.
Normally you can’t look down on it from the rim above either, without a pretty good walk, but I was able to access a section of desert that is usually blocked off and drive within 200 yards or so of being right above it.

There weren’t any in there today though, so it saved a wasted boat trip and hike, just to not see any.
