    Range day!

    First time i have shot a gun this year and man it feels good to get out. I bought a marlin lever action chambered in 44 magnum several months ago and finally got to put it through the paces Got a whole box through and I have to say that is one sweet smooth shooting rifle. Incredibly accurate...

    Tough season

    Got my first deer of the season this morning. Had a 9 point walk behind me, usually they follow the trail toward me but today he walked across the field.....where the huntet behind me, laying beside his truck nailed him. Bittersweet, but he got an amazing buck. I ended up shooting a nice doe...

    Tough season

    Well how about an update. Its FINALLY cold here in central Ohio. Ive got a proper stand and LOTS of signs of deer. Rather large prints all over the property but still not seeing much of anything during the day. Hoping this cold snap sticks and forces them out a little more during the day time...

    Shotgun for the wife

    It was mentioned home defense a couple posts in. We found a Remington hone defense 20 gauge for about 280. It fits her ok but still iffy about the caliber. I keep telling her it wont matter at 10 feet! Sent from my LG-H918 using Tapatalk

    Tough season

    Absolutely! My first 8 years hunting I never even saw a deer until last year. Ive seen close to 10 this year already. I was excited to see all of the tracks and the soybeans growing that got dropped during harvest. But they tilled the field this week and spread chicken manure. So that was a bit...

    Tough season

    Ill have a good opportunity this Friday hopefully. I should get off at 1 pm so it gives me plenty of time to get out there and settled. I think my biggest issue isngetting to my stand. Its probably 550 yards from where I park, its all open field, and I dont want to walk the treeline where the...

    Tough season

    So far, this season is TOUGH. Why? Few reasons. I am from Florida, where there are more deer than people but on average most deer weigh less than 150. I'm hunting in central Ohio where I am stationed. Hunting a leased soybean plot, which was just tilled and mixed with manure. Tough break...

    Meat storage?

    Thanks for all of the swift replies everybody! Still looking. My dad uses a zip lock brand vacuum sealer anf swears by it. Ill make that purchase and report back how it holds up. On a different note, seems lile the deer are only moving right after the 30 minute past sunset timeframe. Was walking...
