« on: January 13, 2010, 03:50:25 PM »
kinda toying with a trip to the valley,................it would be a combined rim-fire/airgun outing.
i'd like to give my son ryan an opportunity to do some 100 yard jackrabbits with the .22 bolt gun we just built.............anyone interested ?

lol...besides, ive been looking for an older marlin 60, 725, 925 or 10/22 to hot-rod. anyone have one gathering dust ?

Go to McCain Valley near Boulevard......pavement turns to dirt as you enter(McCain Valley Road)...it is BLM land legal for hunting...take first right onto Sacotone Spring road...go about 1 1/2 miles...there are turnouts for parking...Jacks are there...

Got this Jack east of Plaster City...would have to guide you in there...






One of my McCain Valley spots...









Going to rain all next week...

next thursday is my last chance for a weekday.  then it's back to full time work. unfortunately with a pay cut.  It could be worse, I coul have been the *other guy* who gave up his hours to me.
I'm headed out to the bass pro shops for a sling and a hunting license.
