A Kimber Rifle for Any Hunt
By: Keith Wood
Whether you're whitetail hunting in the plains or taking down cape buffalo in Mozambique, Kimber has got the rifle for you
I was heading to the most remote wilderness in the United States – a place far closer to the Arctic Ocean than it is to the nearest fast food restaurant.

Sheep hunting is the toughest of hunting pursuits and it demands the most of both the hunter and his or her gear. The rifle that I chose to carry would have to be durable, lightweight, accurate, and reliable. My choice was simple: the Kimber Montana.
