This morning took an old friends rifle he bequeathed to me on a sit in the blind.

It almost felt like old times with him.

Rest In Peace, Doug.
Thanks for being a Friend.

Bill in NE: Good for you in honoring your friend (Doug).
You are better for knowing him and having him as your friend.
Year before last I took my life long friends Rifle (that I purchased from him a couple years before he passed on) on an Antelope Hunt.
It was a heavy barrel Ruger MK-II in 25/06 Remington caliber and I am sure Jack would have been proud of me - 10 minutes in opening day morning I harvested a dandy SW Montana Buck Antelope with his old Rifle.
Enjoy your super-cool Rifle and your memories of Doug.
Thanks for sharing - and I hope your friend Doug and my friend Jack are somehow somewhere sharing stories of Hunts and Rifles.

P.S.: Does that Ruger #1 in 458 Winchester Magnum kick like a Mule?

Yeah ...just how much kick is there? Looks like there was plenty on the coyote side of the equation. Good shooting.

Good deal.

I saw 2 up your way last weekend. Made a little trip from Hiawatha KS to Beatrice to meet up for brass and powder. All of that looked like killer coyote country up through there.
