Well, my elk hunt in the Bob Marshall Wilderness has come and gone. The "Bob", as it is called is an incredibly wonderful patch of Rocky Mountain wilderness. However, the elusive wapiti won this round. I did not have an opportunity to try out my Biesen short .375x67 magnum wildcat on this hunt.
I did however make good use of a new rifle scabbard that I purchased for this hunt from Outfitters Supply in Columbia Falls, MT. I had seen this scabbard on my Wyoming elk hunt a few years ago. Unlike most rifle scabbards you'll see employed, this one provides full protection for your scoped rifle-keeping out rain, snow and pine needles. My painted saddle horse for the trip was named 'River'. River tested out the durability of the scabbard against more than one of the fire charred lodge pole pines common to The Bob. The Biesen rifle survived the horseback trip just fine.
