Dropped off a 6.5 Creedmoore. Gonna be my boat/rainy day deer rifle.
Nope. Mossberg patriot. My 30 06 is a 700 walnut. I was looking for a beater.
Santa came early.
There are some techniques he could try to prevent this.
Serious question, Mike: You shoot deer from a boat? I mean, if that's your thing it's all good but I don't understand.
Hopefully not while moving......most states have laws against that.
No, I don't hunt from a boat. I plan next year to use a boat to access some remote public lands so It'll be bouncing around in a boat. My wood guns are too precious to me to treat them badly. This was a relatively inexpensive rifle and it's cerakote so I don't have to be too worried about cleaning it right after a wet day. I'll be going to the range sat and will have more opinion on it.
I see. Thanks for the clarification.
He also needs a "boat gun" in case the motor breaks.
Spare paddle. Just unload it first.
I understand completely. My goose pit gun has a "plastic" stock on it. It looked like s h i t when new, so takes a beatin' and keeps on looking like s h i t. Perfect for the pit and cast and blasts.
Took the gun to the range Sat and it did well. Sighted in at 100 yards. Moved to 300 yards and was plinking along. Then moved to 500 yards where struggled a bit at first but then settled down and started hitting plate size targets. I’m not qualified to go to the big boy range so I stopped there. I’m confident I’ll never need a 500 yard shot where I live. Fun little riffle to shoot with no noticeable recoil.
If it shoots good at 300, that's all you should need. People that shoot 500 yard shots here at Elk are called "Texans".
Where I hunt you'd be pushing it to shoot past 100. It's still fun to practice though.
Mike, do any people deer hunt with shotguns in TN? I ask because growing up I remember Allegheny County (PA) was shotgun only for deer. Seems that would be a bit more challenging.
They do. Mostly on wma’s were rifles aren’t allowed. They make some with rifled barrels but I have no idea how accurate they are.
Temporary Price Reduction.
