Consider a recoil absorbing garment to reduce the trauma. Working solely from memory, a company called PAST specializes in recoil absorbing technology. Perhaps a shoulder pad or jacket?

If it is the one with the Sightron scope I would get the barrel re-crowned before sighting... it looks like someone rested the muzzle on the truck floor while cruising from stand to stand. And someone really butchered the rear of the stock....

I couldn't see the top of the crown in the picture but the bottom looked crisp.

well, bad news:

no bison permits this year.

last year, they had 2 permits, and 440 applicants. pretty narrow odds of drawing a permit.

this year, they have 0 permits, so even worse odds of drawing a permit.

so no excuse to buy a new rifle for me. drat.

Well that sucks, but if they are properly maintaining the population, I suppose that is the end result.

Rookie! I've always been able to find an excuse to buy a new firearm

Sorry about the permit situation. Sounds like it would've been a hoot

No, that just means you have extra time to find the right deal
