We will get more pics up later when we all get home and caught up with work.

As of now the rest of the group is still on the road or in the air.

 

Be safe you guys still traveling home!

 

To be sure, it was the event of a lifetime.

One of camaraderie, patriotism and marksmanship.

Brothers in arms for sure!

This was my first time shooting over 200 yards. And I had only done that with a red dot on my AR. I had zeroed my Savage 10 at 100 yards before this trip. Nothing longer than that.

Thanks to great instructors and great spotters, I was soon hitting gongs at 500 and 1300 yards. By the time we went back to 300 or 400 yards, it seemed easy.

By the end, we could all hit clay pigeons at 400 and 500 yards. I never thought that was possible in my first weekend of shooting over 100 yards with a brand new rifle and scope.

And the facilities were really nice too. Clean, organized and full of history with the help of our Appleseed instructors.

I plan to bring my kids back here when they're mature enough.

My thanks to everyone who was able to show up, it was a great time.

Just got back to the hotel and unloaded the truck.  Still have a rifle to clean, bags to unpack and other stuff to do.  

 

I am exhausted but I'd do it again in a heartbeat.  I can not say enough about Taos and the MRS.  They know how to show shooters a good time.  The facility is by far the most impressive I have ever been too and even still this morning I was awe struck by the terrain and scenery of that part of NM.

 

For those that did not show, you missed one hell of a good time all around.  Each day was filled with challenges, rewards, and education.

 

I'll post up more later but the work is not over yet.

Violet is still talking about how nice and smart you are. Lol. Thanks for impressing my daughter!

I was only able to make it the very last day and for a couple of hours. It was still worth it. These guys had me hitting a target at 1100 yards. Longest I have ever shot. Even made a hit with irons. I can only imagine what the entire weekend would have done for me.

The wife was so impressed with the facilities she said I can quit my job next year if I have to do that I can make it. Taos and Blue are super nice and extremely talented instructors. Thank you for your efforts. They are truly appreciated.

Steel,

Your daughters were cracking me up! You can tell there's a lot of love in your family. When Violet told me she wasn't sure the tooth fairy was real, I about died laughing. Just the way she told her story and gave her facts was awesome.

I can't imagine those two as teenagers. Good luck! You'll need it. :laugh:

Not everything is what it seems. Death waits on the Whittington Plains.

These antelope were spooked and ran within 10 feet of the firing line. We were not shooting but it surprised us.

They went down to the water hole about 10 yards from the end of our firing line where redbaron06 was shooting.

A few does visited off and on all weekend as well.

Note the foreleg in the lower right.

Mountain lion roam this particular valley and over the years I have seen numerous lion kills.

I have an elk and deer rack from two lion kills here at home.

They live in the buttes and valleys at the end of the range.

When setting steel last month for this shoot I noticed lion scat in places that were good ambush sites.

This group of antelope was two females and three young ones.
