They are getting to be a serious problem here in Mississippi. State law allows you to hunt them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I have to admit I have thought about some type of FLIR or night scope for shootin' 'em. Then I looked at the prices!
I purchased one of the green spot lights for night time hunting. The colored light does not spook the animals. I've only used it once but it worked great. I have some pigs coming at night to my deer feeders so I'm making plans for another night hunt soon.
Hi Everyone - second post for 2015 - 2016 (post 31 was my first).
At about 08:00 on November 7th - with the wind at my back I had a nice 3-4 year old doe try to sneak by me coming from my 06:00. At one point she was 15 yards from me and all I could do was freeze in my stand and hope she could not wind me. Eventually she moved out to my left at about 40 yards stopped and gave me a good shoot. I slowly positioned my M14 and got the BDC cross hairs on her and squeezed the shot off calmly!
JRA #148 went 2 for 2 as the kill was swift and decisive! The rifle performed perfectly and my Big Red Hardened Stock continues to perform and hold up perfectly in the field. The load was Nosler Ballistic Tip 165 Grain over 42 grains of H4895.
Well, opening day closed with several animals but not 'the big one'. Have fun watching a raccoon wander for a good while though. Rained heavily this morning and cold this evening. Daughter and I will try again tomorrow.
Yes we can use handguns and rifles that fire certain approved handgun rounds. There are case and bullet dimensions to go by. I do have a nice Uberti '73 that is chambered in .44-40 that is legal, but after the Fudds and anti-gunners shot down the regular rifle cartridges proposal earlier this year I refuse to buy the modern gun license.
what part of our lovely state you in?
i just got a mossberg slugster hoping to bag one
dad uses a custom t/c contender and i've got my 300blk pistol. down here around Patoka Lake I wish I could use my 243 it'd be great we've got 400-500 yards on our property
Last weekend was able to get my first hunt in 10 years, been busy with life school, and kids, you all know how it is. Just in time I went out and bought a nice little scope Aim Point 1.5 - 4 power scope for $100. After I bought it and liked how I mounted it on the rifle, thought man there is no way it will hold a zero for such a cheap scope. After 80 rounds, sighting in scope, then irons, then fun shooting with scope again, no issues whats so ever with this scope, for $100 bucks it was 100% worth it. Now gotta get a better stock with a cheek riser, I have a few ideas, and honestly will probably hunt less with this rifle in the future, but here is a set up, results, and deer I got after all said and done.
My dads mule deer killed in Colorado before I was born with springfield 1903.. next was my grandfathers elk, then my little collection of whitetail horns. Most were with the 308...maybe one day ill see something that gets close to what my forefathers got!
enjoy! Obtw inside spread on that mule deer is 23+"s
