The guy I hunt with for yotes called and is going to be back in town soon (hes in the Marines). Anyways, he calls me up and says that the farmer we used to cull for has been leaving him messages to come thin out the beavers and yotes (He has peanut fields and also a hunt club... the beavers dam the irrigation canals and well I am sure we all know what yotes do to deer)

Not sure when, but I spent 3 hours last nite loading up ammo for the AR!.

Heres some pics, cuz I got nothing else to do today.

Good luck on the yotes. A buddy and I tried a few weeks ago and the only thing we saw was squirrels but it was nice to get out anyway. Nice looking toys also.

Thanks again. I am really pleased with the AR. I can shoot a nickel 5 out of 5 times at 100 yards with that thing. Yotes better look out!

How is Nebraska to live/hunt? I hear some good things, and bad things about out there. Never been. Do yall have prarie dogs? Man I really want to shoot some of those.

Your AR looks Great! Been thinking about getting one myself for varmints. Who did the work on yours?

02-14-2007, 13:00
I did, every piece on it was done by me. I think I have $3600 in it. I really really want an AR-10 now though.

Its a RRA 20 inch varminter. The barrel (I bead blasted it) and bolt are the only things not tweaked or changed (besides upper and lower recievers).

Hell, why I am posting gun pics here is a pic of my two completed ARs and my Sig. I have 2 more lowers I have started on, just havent had time/money to finish. Want to trade a lower for an AR-10 lower.

You do great work! I really like the Scoped AR in your last set of Pic's.

Thanks. Although, its all pretty straight forward. Kinda just put the parts together.
Oh and for clarification, when I wrote I bead blasted it, what I meant is I had it done. It used to be a shiney metal, and I asked a buddy of mine to do it. WOW what a difference it made. Its so much better looking to me now.
Heres what is looked like half way done. Since I bead blasted, changed the foregrip, scope cover for eye piece, new gas block... I think I am done with this one. I really like the way it came out. And WOW can it shoot good. I mean, easily the most accurate rifle I own. (The bolt gun is about as accurate.)

Nebraska has very good hunting opportunities for a wide variety of game. I personally hunt deer, pheasant, quail, and dove. I've shot coyotes and other varmints before but usually just on opportunity. We do have prairie dogs but I have never had the chance to blast one as they are out in the western part of the state mostly. Hopefully this summer a buddy and I can go out and give it a try. We have decent fishing opportunities also. there is a ton of public land and farmers are usually pretty easy to get along with as long as permission is asked for access to their land.
In a way I wish we had some hogs to kill around here. My hunting buddy and I want to go to texas to try them some time.

I have a friend who moved to Nebraska, and she kept telling em I would love it, as its very laid back, old fashion and alot of outdoor activities. Every day on the way to work, I think about moving as the traffic is out of control here. It used to take me 10 minutes to get to work, now its almost 30 on some days (8 miles). I like the country. Oh well, probably will never leave here, but I think about every day.

I would miss the ocean though... as I LOVE to big game fish.

Hope you get to pig hunt though. Its a rush. Most go uneventfully. But there are enough of them that go VERY BAD that it makes the hunt more exciting, and keeps the allure of it alive.
