Dad scores...... finally!!
« on: November 01, 2009, 08:02:52 PM »
Dad has hunted almost every evening since the gun season opened in eastern NC two weeks ago. In that time he has only seen 2 deer, and missed one of those! ;D He chalked it up to the huge acorn crop there this fall that has been keeping the deer out of the bean fields, at least during legal hunting hours. Well, this Saturday he decided that he needed a change of scenery and headed to his club in Virginia to catch the muzzle loader opener. I am proud to announce that the gorilla is finally off his back. This 8 point came into a corn field at 5:20pm and gave dad a broadside 65 yard shot. The deer only made it 30 yards before falling. Dad shot it with his TC Encore with 100 grains pryodex pellets and a 295 grain powerbelt pure lead bullet. (this is a new series of 100% lead bullets they came out with) The bullet did its job mushrooming perfectly to about an inch in diameter and it was found under the hide on the off side. Hope this gets the old man's spirits back up with my upcoming trip down to hunt with him.


The bullet

Tell your dad congrats Ned! O0  Not too bad for a NC hillbilly. ;D

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Cool.. I was just curious. That's a ways off from where I hunt here in Virginia.

Other than here in Frederick County... I hunt in Rockbridge and Botetourt Counties further south.

I used to live down in Rockbridge county.. Buena Vista to be exact.

There's a lot of big bucks down that way... spoiled me.  :shock:

To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

It does look like a little donut!

Great looking muzzleloader buck, GJ Pappa Strutt! What did he dress out to?
