Went down the morning and helped son for awhile. He got 6 more Savage rifles and 2 pistols (with Leupolds mounted) yesterday. Needed to sight them all in (no wind today, but supposed to get up again tomorrow). All of these were 6.5 Creeds. Got the rifles dialed “close”. I put the bolts in the pistols and handed him one. Rifle scopes, with a 6.5 creed chambered pistol. He messed with it a while and finally fired one off. It was bout 2 1/2” high. He then dialed the Leupold rep and told him he could sight them in when he got here, or bring some pistol scopes Or longer eye relief scopes…LOL.
Boy, have I got a pile of 6.5 creed brass…😄
Anyway they all come in tomorrow. He had to go into county seat at 1 pm for a meeting. He is on the county excise board also. I put up all the rifles, pistols, ammo. Spotting scope, etc. He said he got the 2 new Nightforce scopes in yesterday and we would mount them on the 6 and 6.5 of mine this evening and sight them in.
Maybe, I’ll finally get to try out the 6 Creed.
This is one of the rifles and pistols….The new rifles have straight pull bolts, not conventional bolt actions.

Update on little redhead. She is making out like a bandit. The last group of hunters (electric line repair boys from all over) decided to raffle off 2 handmade knives and a hatchet, that one of them’s dad had built. Any way they raised $1400 in the raffle. They gave the money to little redhead to buy equipment for the T ball team she plays on. Then the guy that won one of the knives gave it to her…

AND…one of the guys sent this to her (he said he was impressed with her shooting and wanted to give her something to practice with)

One more down…..how’s this for something different.
He was a little better last year, had more points on the “high” side. He made it to the bottom of the canyon before he gave it up. The guide had to work for it….LOL

Got #6 for this group This evening. 6 out of 8 hunters (and one of the two passed on a mature 8 point yesterday). He was hoping for a 10 point or better. It don’t always happen that way. Anyway 4 Of group left this afternoon, 4 leaving this evening, and rest leaving early AM. It’s been a long weekend.

Took wifey out to supper this evening. While eating got a text from son. Wind was blowing this afternoon here, but hunters were gone, and little redhead wanted to go hunting. She has filled her deer tags for the year. They drove down to the river bluff blind and there was a hog on the field below. Son ranged him 241 yards. She was using the little 6.5 TCU. He told her to hold one pig high and 1/2 pig left. She smoked her a pig. Happy little girl and (I think) a happier dad.
I’ve been telling him with all the high dollar scopes, range finders, etc. all he had to remember was windage and elevation……LOL
