From Matt's blog:

Last weekend, I went down to New Mexico with my father-in-law, Jim, my buddies Aaron and Larry Moore, and their buddy Tom. Larry and Aaron run and own LaserLyte (http://www.laserlyte.com/); so for those of you who check in frequently you'll know that I've been on a couple of hunts with them in the past. The goal of this weekend's trip was to hunt antelope and it was successful, I shot one at over 500 yards. My weapon of choice was a 300 Win Mag Browning (http://www.browning.com/) X-Bolt scoped with a USOptics (http://www.usoptics.com/) 3.2-17 and Hornady (http://www.hornady.com/) A-Max ammunition. We had a great time and hunting antelope was definitely a learning experience for me. Here are some pictures from that hunt:

As hunting season is coming up, I just want to pass on some information for tuning guns in. For those of you who don't know, guns are very particular. Not every ammunition will shoot the same in every gun. That is a big reason why a lot of shooters will hand load their ammunition, because this allows them to tailor it to the gun. I sent a couple of my guns to CorŽbon (http://www.dakotaammo.net/), not only do they sell ammunition, but you can send a gun in and they will go through it all to make sure it is shooting correct and they will also match loads for it. This way your ammunition and gun will match each other.

We got a fight this weekend down in Texas, one of my best guys at the gym will be competing. Brian Foster from the HIT Squad will be one of the preliminary fights. Like I said, he's definitely one of the best guys at the gym and I look for him to do well. Also, the main event will be Rich and Vitor. I think this is an interesting match up as you know Rich and I are good friends and I think he will pull out a victory. I don't see much of a ground game by either fighter, just a lot of strikes. Vitor is such a mental fighter, it all just depends on who is going to show up. If a confident Vitor shows up, he could do well; but if a weak-minded, undertrained Vitor shows up, then he's going to be in trouble. I'm sure Rich will come in with a good game plan and I see it being a good main event.

Here's the bible verse for this week and I will talk to you all later:
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the LORD, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the LORD as a reward. It is the LORD you are serving. (Colossians 3:23-24)
