Well I really did something stupid last weekend. Thought I could take the chena via canoe off hotspirings road never been so wrong nor wet and cold. My rifle and I went into the water and all I recovered was myself. I tried to wade out to the area I thought my rifle might be but the current is to strong. Pretty sure I know where it is laying within about a 25 yard area but can't get to it without a boat. If anyone has a big magnet/boat or any idea of how to recover this the help would be more than appreciated. The scope on that rifle leupold vx3 is not only expensive but given to me on my fourteenth birthday fifteen years ago and helped me harvest my first deer so Deeply sentimental. Or if you found it please return.
