Headed out in the morning to shoot some dogs north of Amarillo! We should have service and will do our best to post pics and videos.

Get an elbow pad like they use for volley ball. That carpet will take the skin off your elbow with lots of shooting. I ran PD hunts for 5 years, ask me how I know lol

Just pulled into Childress for lunch then back on the road until Dumas, Tx.

We are going hunting on an dairy farm.

Me, Jason (TheGutman), and my FIL

We will be using:

.17hmr
.223
22-250

Also, the shooting top has rode pretty good on the truck.

Finished for the night. If I had to guess we shot around 75-100 in only 3 hrs.

Getting up tomorrow for a full days hunt.

Will post pics tomorrow. We forgot to bring the spotting scope today.

A hunting trip where you don't forget something, is usually an unsuccessful hunting trip.

In the picture, it looks like they pulled off the side of the road and are shooting across the fence.
