VXII 3-9 40mm on a stainless M77 MKII .264WM, gray lam stock, black montana sling. Free float/accra gel bed action, improved factory trigger, mild action slickifications.
Handloaded 130 gr barnes TSX 64 gr of 7828.

It doesn't shoot deer often.
But when it does, it overpenetrates.

You did very well on the meat processing equipment.



A pimped-out, silver-scoped .264WM?!?!?!?!

I don't know whether to cheer or cry.....

All the pictures are great but this last one is really something. Pam is very very good with the camera now and obviously has gift to grab pics when the time is right.


Reminds me of the road we take to camp. I've seen this look many times over the past 40 years. Never gets old.

Fluffy you were correct the new big game coordinator is a leslie mclnenly. I have no clue who she is or her background but hope somebody does something to figure out what is going on, LOL.

We had quite a few fawns this spring with a mild winter and milder spring.

Saw a bunch of fawns up until opener and then they went to ground.

My longest shot here was 406 yards, my youngest took his first at 300 yards even, average is about 100 yards or less. We happen to sit on an alfalfa field but also hunt pastures and thick wood lots.

Well, then I'm thinking they're holding tight while Ma is getting chased around. If you had them up to opener, I'd wager your paychek on it. wink

200 in that timber! Hard for me to imagine if it looks like that in all directions.

It looks like it is pretty open from the pictures, you can pick out some pretty clear lanes. Love that woods type. We have a lot of overgrown popple mixed in with semi old growth, it is a pain to walk thru much less think of shooting thru.

Those are the kind of woods I love to stalk thru.

Bravo

This is what most of my hunting looks like. I LOVE this time of year!

That's why I like my blind...it has a flap on all 4 sides that folds down to reveal a patch of orange.

Can't remember who made it, but I will dig it out and see...

I just just a gander mountain bipod type, ive got a technique for locking my gun elbow in the corner of the arm rest, and pulling the gun into my shoulder, its very steady. Dont need any orange, both those stands are over 800 yards from the nearest propery line :-D.

The woods are more open than they look, below that it was logged roughly 10yrs ago and thick doesnt begin to describe it, this is part of the "old growth" that is left on the farm, its scheduled to be logged in 2014 per our MFL plan

ac, you are trusting. I tend to find that folks that are likely to take a poke at a big box blind are also not likely to be inhibited by small things like property lines. Be careful.

haha i get on well with the neighbors, most of them dont hunt, the ones that due know where the field stand is, they'd have to be 500 yards over thier property line to have line of site at it.

If i get shot in the woods by a stray bullet, well i guess it was my time to go

We just had that happen here opening weekend guy standing next to his truck shot by an acquaintance. Sad and not really talked about much. Sounds like the shooter was shooting blind at noise
