Sadly I lost all of mine in that terrible flood of last winter in January....

both of mine were lost, swept away in the high tide....

I've joined Michael Gloomberg and his Everytown Against Gun Violence instead....

and eat sensibly now....

My extensive research of 3 deer says that it's tough to beat a 55gr TTSX. Holy hell the deer don't like it.


It ain't my fault.
