Does anyone know...

I'm betting that the various states will be successful in the courts on the issue of managing wolf populations. Does anyone know an outfitter that plans to conduct wolf hunts? Which states would be best?

Free Scope

Pursuant to some excellent advice from someone here, I purchased a Dillon RL550B from Graf and Sons. Along with the press, I got free shipping, and a BSA S39x40 scope for .22 rifle, with rings. Unfortunately, I don't have a .22 cal. rifle. If I put the scope on a .30 M1 carbine, or a .243 would the ...
