    AWOL

    FOR GROUP
    5 times 5 At 100
    mirage no problem
    *HUNTER CLASS BENCHREST RIFLE
    *EXPENSIVE AND UNSUNG GLASS
    -------  
    .. Gone and, we're easily forgotten. Brief road trip to Cody, Wyoming. Better than fair success.
    NOT TOO BAD
    .. The shooting complex at Cody, Wyoming is a world class facility that can accommodate all forms of the shooting sports.
    .. From SASS, to casual, to Hunter Class, to Varmint Class, to Rail Guns, to 1,000 Yard competition, to Police and Combat training, to skeet, to trap, to across the course, to sporting clays,  --  it's all there.
    .. We do this less and less as our fishing is closer and less fiddly. When the weather gods lay down the winds and, the cool air allows for clear views, it's possible for even us to do well.
    .. We did!

    .. [[ *Hunter class benchrest rifle with fixed power 6x42 IOR Valdata scope [with glass from Schott Glass Werkes of Germany.] Trued Remington action in .308 Winchester caliber.  Krieger stainless steel barrel. Jewell 2oz. trigger, Big spring true firing pin, Aluminum rail, Magnesium rings, Macmillan Edge ultralight stock. Weight is nine pounds, fourteen ounces.]]
    -----  
    .. The last week of warmer than seasonal weather has slowed the catching only slightly.
    EASILY CATCHES FISH
    .. A few daily temperature records were set and the neighbors have exercised both their sweat glands and vocabularies.
    .. Looks, now, to be settling into seasonal temperatures and the fishing is too.
    .. Ants are up. Hopper nymphs are molting. Beetles are roaming. Millers are flitting. Bitsie Beasties are hatching. Caddis are prolific. Even the Madison River is highly productive in unusual and accessible places.
    .. We're awake way too early and planning more road time. Such is the sleep rhythm of the mature.
