Sounds like life is good!I'm still in the same spot. Stock and tang is bedded. It's ready for the triggers when I get to it. I baited for bear all of August, then shot one a couple weeks back. I'm goose hunting this weekend, waterfowl hunting for the next month, deer the first week of November in MN, then another week of waterfowl, then a fall turkey trip the black hills, Thanksgiving, then deer hunting in SD, finally ending mid December with an elk hunt in Wyoming.
To put it mildly, I'm booked until after Christmas. I plan on working on this rifle on and off during the waterfowl season. I haven't completely ruled out using this for deer hunting this year yet, but it's going to take some work.
