    Good luck! What are you hunting for? What are you hunting with?

    Either way, I hope you have a clean kill or a clean miss.

    Nice. I've wanted to go hog hunting bad. I would love a freezer full of pulled pork sandwiches.

    I hunted and killed a black bear (250 pounds) a couple weeks ago. Took me 11 years to get a tag. Looking forward to sharing the meat with my brothers and dad during deer season. Going bow hunting for deer the next few weekends as the rut will be kicking into high gear soon...

    I was out deer hunting on the eastern side of the cascades. Saw a doe but no bucks, so no deer for me. An unlucky grouse popped out of the woods and got himself shot. My 1911 got itself a kill. I was carrying that and my mosin nagant, felt like going old school for this trip. I actually managed a pretty clean shot on the grouse, so I got some meat out of the deal. Just about took it's head off in one shot.

    Going to Colorado for mule deer. I usually bring both my 7mm and 300 Win Mag.


    Mule deer is my thing.

    Being outdoors on the hunt is gay, but being in a city with a bunch of "boys" isn't. Okay.

    I don't understand hunting.

    I'd do it if I had to live, but otherwise I don't get it.

    You got some boss hog rifles there. I have a love affair with the 7mm. Wicked round.

    I've never been hog hunting, but I'd like to try it someday.

    I know in some southern states there is a real infestation problem with wild hogs, where their population is massively out of control, and you can go out for night hunts and bag as many as you can possibly get. I'd like to do that someday too.

    I meant "boss hog" as in you can pretty much take out anything in north America lol I have a friend of mine that's gone on numerous pig hunts. A lot of ranchers will let you do it for free, you just gotta have your own gear and not shoot their animals or buildings.

    Women shoes as bait. Oprah reruns as luring call. Kill them with my bear hands.
    Wait for it...

    Not until November. I'm taking my 870 out with slugs to give that a go this year. I dialed it in last week. It is spot on at 40 yards. I will see how it goes at 50 yards. I was thinking of putting a 2.5x on it to see if I could go to 100 yards. I'm talking kill shot to the heart, not just hitting some big target.

    This is where I adjusted the elevation until I got a kill shot at 40 yards. I don't even expect to have to shoot that far anyway but you never know.

    For a short barreled tactical shotgun it's amazingly accurate.

    My brother tried to dial in his Mossberg 835 but couldn't get a kill shot.

    I see. Yeah, the 300 Win Mag is great and about as big as I want to go. Any bigger than that and you start messing up your shoulder.

    That would be awesome. I wonder how you hook up with the owners?

    That's cool motorboat. I just hunt with a little break action 30 06.

    I want to get an extended barrel for my glock 20 so I can hunt with it as well. Needs to be at least 6 inches. Thered just be something downright cool about taking a large game animal with a pistol.

    I don't even like going to 300wm any more. I used to be about big weatherby calibers and magnum rounds, then I found that I can get anything with standard cartridges like my 30-06, 270, etc, etc.

    Even for trips to Alaska and Canada, I never took more than a 30-06 for the past...shit...12 years now and never had problems.

    Yeah, in a lot of southern states their population has exploded out of control and they are considered pests to the environment and rest of the natural habitat. They breed much faster than can be properly controlled and it has an adverse affect on the wildlife around them.

    I would love to go Moose hunting in Canada. Coming from the USA, I wonder how easy it is to get drawn up there (or however they do it)?

    There was a point where I was interested in a weatherby. I don't remember which one I was looking at but it was bigger than their .300 . Luckily I decided not to do it. I've heard so many stories of people buying them, taking one shot, and then immediately selling them. Lol, I don't need something that yuge.

    Then again, the .577 T-Rex was always appealing. :icon_chee

    I imagine you gotta know a guy who knows a guy. I never really got any clarification on how he was able to do it. Maybe email some of the bigger land owners in the area that you're going to be in. It seems like you'd have to know them well though. I wouldn't want random guys running around my propery at night with ARs and such lol
