I shot this buck on the first day of my hunt at about 6:40 AM. At just around 75 to 80 meters, I could have used just about any scope. But, it was nice not having to agonize over what power to set the scope on using this Meopta 6x42 on my Browning A-Bolt in 6.5x55 Swede. RJ

What a nice buck. Weidmannsheil.

Quite a game face, too.

Beautiful deer, if you don't mind me asking what country are you hunting in?

Thanks for the kind comments guys. This old man is happy to just get out into the woods once in a while.

gerry35, Romania

Cornel, It has been a very cool spring this year. We have had a lot of rain. I had to delay my hunting for about 2 weeks. My hunting day was beautiful, then ever since then it has been raining again. "Sometimes even a blind pig finds an acorn".

Ready, That's what happens when you get this old. You think you are smiling for a picture and that's what you get. Oh well! RJ

Thank you, always thought Romania was a neat country. Your 6.5x55 is still one of the best deer rounds, haven't been without one since the mid 1990's.

What are firearm restrictions like over there?

Oldelkhunter,

All firearms must be licensed and can only be sold through a dealer. Reloading metallic cartridges is not permitted, but lots of good factory ammo is available. You have to have a very good need to be licensed for a handgun. Most hunters here own only one to three rifles/shotguns. I put up with the restrictions because I have far more good hunting opportunities here than I would be able to afford in the U.S.A.

Caleveras,

I've met a lot of good hunters with Horia and his crew. I hope you can come back and we have a chance to "dodge" the bears again. RJ
