Your right, some are out in places and not so in other areas. My first outing was Saturday and I did leave alot of
squeakers wishing they hadn't come out. Should be improving daily now with this warmer weather.

I just checked my in box looking for my invitation but it's not there. Maybe next time. My son and I are planning our first trip later this month if the weather holds out. Looking forward to your report. Randy

Yeah just a one day shoot, got back about 2000 last night . Squeaks were out, but not in force, we all got almost 100 though. Will post some pics after Grandson's has B ball tournament in Chico.

This is my second outing. So for you picture lovers, here is what the 20 VT likes to do.

I'm having to move pics after editing from Windows XP to Linux which I'm using and it isn't working very well so I ended up with only one pic and it's my mug (I'm not mad) and not my brothers the other guy or any kills. We hit the fields at 0830 and shot from Bodhi's hill named after my grandson who shot here last year. Jim and I shot a few over 90, I shot the Savage 204 about 40% of the time and Jim shot his 223 about 90% the remainder I shot the CZ .17 and Jim shot his modified 10/22, and my brother only shoots his 10/22 with a 20 or 22" green mt barrel and he was at almost 40 squeaks. We'll go again within a week or so and I'll attempt to do better. posting.php?mode=reply&f=5&t=11934#

Your CZ looks like mine, 17HMR and it shoots just fine, for those shorter ranges-- up to about 150 or so. Then out comes the 20SCC or 20ai. Bill K
