Good question. Have you had any functioning issues with the M1A or Norinco? What temperatures are you hunting in?

Awesome

Great pics! Polar Bear hunting would be a blast. Going to use my SAI M1A for the deer hunt this year.

Took the top one (same as middle) with my M1A standard with iron sights...estimated range about 30-45 yards away. The bottom one I took with my Socom II, also iron sights...about the same distance. I used Hornady TAP with the smaller buck and a custom handload with a Nosler Ballistic Hunting round for the larger buck. I also ended up taking two does in the last day with my Standard iron sights. One at 300 yards on the nose (ranged it with my Nikon Rangefinder) and the other one at 275 yards. Both with my custom handloads. Unfortunately I didn't get any pics :( - I'll tell you what though, it feels damn good to harvest one out at that range with just the irons.

I pick my mount up for the biggun' in the next month or two. Can't wait to put it on my wall of horns and manlyness!

I'm a 55gr wimp. Haven't used a big caliber in a while...:


Older photo, mostly because no deer last year. But only had the opportunity to go out a couple of days.

Now if the deer were apt to shoot back whilst utilizing hard cover, then it would be 7,62x51, no question!

My guess Pheasants Forever, Ducks Unlimited and Cabella's have done far more for wildlife than Greenpeace ever has. Just to name a few.

nice seal btw. looks cold out there.
They are a bunch of do gooder city slickers with a Disney perspective on nature.

In my state the F&W agency receives no tax money, it is funded solely with license fees and boat registration. With funds from sportsman as well as some conservation groups our F&W department has brought back whitetail deer, wild turkey, elk, and river otters to our state that were virtually wiped out by market hunters in the late 19th and early 20th century. Right now there are estimated to be more deer in the state than when Daniel Boone first walked through the Cumberland Gap.

Now the bunny huggers are trying to get trade in exotic endangered animals banned in the U.S. Given that the largest populations of these animals are in the U.S. and that hunting is the major reason why these animals are bred a ban would almost certainly help push them to extinction. By the way there have been efforts underway to restock native lands with animals bred on U.S. hunting ranches, so this group of morons would rather ban hunting and see an entire species go extinct rather than do what is best for the species.

I actually saw an interview with one of those kooks recently, I think it was on The Blaze but from another source, and she straight up declared that it would be better for the animals to go extinct than to be bred for hunting. Something about them living miserable, unnatural lives, I dunno it was incoherent and purely emotional (just like everything else they say or do). Just goes to show where their hearts really lie.

When I purchased my Springfield M1A years ago it was already quite clean of any cosmoline and goop ... I just stripped her down and I think I used Varsol to clean off the remainder and did a very light oiling ...she's never froze on me yet. My NOrinco/USGI one has froze almost everytime ... so I need to strip her down and clean off all the excess cosmoline and goop? I'm in the process of building a M14 in .243 also to do some tuktu(caribou) hunting and hopefully next year go hunt COUGAR in British Columbia. POST YOUR HUNTING PICS folks. Cheers,

p.s. I've read there is this graphite type dry material you can run in your oprod, bolt area and it won't freeze as it's not a liquid. ;)

Thanks from jbrooks

I am originally from Maine and in my younger years I would have agreed with you. Now that I'm an over weight, middle aged, bald guy living in California these pictured make me think how nice the weather here is great!

hey otokiak some great piks of stuff i will never get to see! if you shoot a seal in the water, will it float or sink? you may could hire out as a state contractor in california, they have seals so thick on beaches & marinas that people can't get to their boats, & nobody knows what to do about them! where are you getting the barrel for your .243 m14 build? oh yeah, the young lady in your avitar can't be canadian, she's not dressed for the weather up there! again, good photos!

HAHAHA love the comment on my avatar pic Andy! In summer the seals will sink, towards fall-time they are fat from feeding all summer and the Hudson's Bay sea water gets densor due to almost freezing so that time the seals don't sink they will float. I already have the barrel in .243 and all parts except a receiver to do my build ... soon she'll be done! Thanks for your comments. Nice hunting pics to the others and thanks for posting them. Cheers guys/gals,
