Went out for a hunt with my brother, managed to take this nice young meat animal. 210m shot through both lungs put him down quickly. Had eye fillet and heart for tea. Brother wanted to do the carry out so i didn't argue!
I know what you mean. I use factory ammo for .22-250 and .30-30 (except for buffalo). Funny thing... I advised a young bloke keen to shoot a big buffalo with his Remington 7600 .308 to buy some of that new Remington ammo that loads 165 grain Barnes TSX. Well, he found one cartridge loaded with the primer in back-to-front! That could’ve been awkward. I saw pictures of the bull he ended-up getting (on a proper hiking hunt), and it was a proper big one.
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.
Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
