Any restriction on caliber




Nope, no restriction on caliber.

But let's use a little common sense here Jeff. That 600NE would be ok, but you wouldn't really bring a .17HMR now would you? I mean that's just WAY too much gun, c'mon now.

Well, the diesel is expensive, but I really think that I could truck that gun out there. I mean, I would have to get the wide load permits and the pacer cars, but I think I could swing it.

Yeah, you'd have to truck it in. It'd be easier to put it on a train, but then we'd have to call it a RailGun and disqualify it as benchrest.

I'd like to know if you are going to provide a place to check the sights on the rifles before the shoot? How about coffee and donuts?

You can't shoot from your hunting rig Jason, but if you want to take the door off of your truck and bring it to the firing line...

I'm trying to imagine that Michael. I've never shot from a ladder, but you must have either one LOOONNNNGGG pair of shooting sticks, or a very short ladder.

I think checking sights would be OK right there on location BEFORE the match. Some deli sandwiches or something might be more appropriate, and unlike donuts, there might actually be some left for other folks after I got into them.

I don't use caffiene before a shoot, but whatever floats your boat (or teeth).

Thats me on the right, Pup on the left. My shooting stick is fully extended, but it's used shorter and hooked to one of the steps. We were in a parking lot before the SE Arizona hunt..... The shuttle burned up that very morning right about the time this picture was taken.

Nice rig Jason.

There's a lot on I-35 just north of San Antonio that I always wanted to stop at and take pics, but it didn't appear to be a good place for a big rig to be.

They had enclosed blinds on some sort of hydraulic or pneumatic lifts, mounted in the beds of a couple of pickups. One of them was run up a good 10' above the bed. It's illegal to use that sort of rig here in AZ, but they looked cool as heck.

"It's illegal to use that sort of rig here in AZ,"

Is that because of the no shooting from a vehicle law?

Yes, you could make up a trailer and unhook the truck at every stand. That would be legal. but I wonder about practicalty. Those Texas rigs are big for night hunting and we can't call predartors ... except for Racoons .... at night.

Its a bummer that I cannot use it in Az.
I also use it in day time use its even more fun when you see them coming in from far away, even wacking them way out. I have taken many coyotes on day hunts, as well as night hunts..
I plan on building another type that will hold 2 hunters side by side, or back to back this way each will have a 180 view they will have there own chairs and lighting system.

Dang! Nose bleed for sure!
It would seem that the recoil generated by the first shot would lay that entire rig on its side!!! Does the chair lock in place or do you spin like a top after the shot?

I can see where a rig like that would work great in the Texas Flatlands, but with all of the side hilling that you have to do in Arizona you might need seat belts and a shoulder harness just to stay in the seat. But then you would be able to see and shoot over a hill, wouldn't you?

Seriously, very nice rig!
