But, I would appreciate the input...
I was invited to go on a moose hunt in the Livengood area, in a case of the blind leading the blind (the guy offering has never hunted there either).
First question is vehicle, I have an:
Argo avenger with rubber tracks, winch, fully enclosed, etc.
Yamaha Rhino 450 with either ITP tires, or TJD Cattracks.. fully enclosed, winch, etc
Honda Rancher 350 with ITP tires.
Given the terrain, any input on which vehicle to take?
I have a Kimber 8400 Montana in 30-06 with a pet load shooting 180 gr barnes Tipped TSX's to 1MOA@ 2730 fps with a Zeiss 3-9x 40 scope.
I also have a Ruger Hawkeye 35 Whelen which throws 310 gr Woodleighs to 1.75 MOA @ 2300 fps which I feel comfortable with out to 250 yds with a Burris 2-7 scope.
Any preferences? I feel comfortable with the Kimber out to 400+, and of course the Ruger to 250... based on the local terrain, any advice?
I think that any one of the above combinations will probably suffice, but I'm the kind of guy who over prepares, and over researches for anything I'm not intimately familiar with.
