Pages keep ticking by. Been MIA. Getting close to my Christmas now. Week from Saturday is opening day. Have to haul the shack up tomorrow. Taking the Jeep for a ride Saturday to see if we can find some birds. Going to head up past Jackman towards the border. Cruise around and see what there is to see.

Re: The Gun Room

Ok... here goes. First, I will say up front, if you hunt by sitting watching a food plot or field, ok. The snow keeps the light later in the day and provides contrast with the deer. That is the only time. When it snows during hunting season it is 90% of the time wet, heavy snow. As such, it sticks a...

I can BARELY squeeze 200yd at my range. And then it's through a tunnel of trees with little light. Consequently, you (me, anyway) need a scope to see.

Re: The Gun Room

For me, it's the other way around. There aren't many 200yd shots around here. Most everything is close in my AO. As such, the 300BO and 7.62x39 have way more utility than 5.56. People do hunt with 5.56 here, but you will find most are sitting over a food plot, etc., where they have a very controlled...
