Maxpetros checking in.
No.6Hunter Checking in!!
Here I are. Checking in from VA.
I have 2 counties I hunt where gun season opens before bow so I'll be able to gun hunt on Oct. 1. After that statewide muzzleloader opens on Nov. 1 and the regular statewide gun season opens on Nov. 15. Good luck!
Sup boys!?!? I hear pit bulls count as 50 points each and there's no limit!
Buncha YAHOO WANNABEES on this team ...
This will be an interesting one for sure, can yotes count for the 50 points as well? Maybe 10pts...
No, yotes are harmless compared to pits.
So what firearms will you guys be using this year for deer?
Mossberg 835 for myself
I like youre style, I have the same shotgun shooting 3.5" 00 Federal Vital Shok or 3.5" 00 Winchester XX High Velocity
Also use a Marlin 336(y) with Hornady 160 gr Leverevolution, a Rossi .243 with Winchester 100 gr Ballistic Silvertips, Mosin Nagant with 180 gr(bulk ammo Soft Points).
Tradtitions Pursuit LT .50 cal BP with 110 grains of Blackhorn 209 and a Harvester Muzzleloading 300 gr. Scorpion PT Gold(w/crush rib sabots & CCI209m Primer).
Shouldn't you be picking vegetables or getting banned or somethin??
My dad had given it to me as my first gun awhile back, I have never been able to use my rifled barrel until this year so im not sure what shot to choose yet other then a 3.5" slug. As soon as I get my Vortex scope i'll be off to the range to sight it in and hopefully be on within 100 yds
Just my thoughts so take it for what it's worth, there are some really good 2 3/4 slugs out there that may be a little easier on your shoulder. The 835 kicks like a mule and for slugs a 3 1/2 might be a bit of overkill, hell many would say a 12 gauge slug period is overkill considering how lethal 20 gauge slug guns are for whitetails. Again just an opinion I'm sure just about anything will work, I mainly shoot the 3 1/2 buckshot because I already have it but others I hunt with are equally deadly with well patterened 2 3/4 and 3 inch shells out of the same gun.
I'll be shooting my Winchester 270wsm with a Zeiss 3-9 Conquest in Canada this fall.
Why is everyone so quiet? Pitbulls got your tongues? Just kidding No 6!
So, when will everyone be hunting? I'll be heading to Ontario on Nov 5-15 to hunt some deer that have never seen people before. We have an area by our camp that's extremely inaccessible, but we can get in there with a lot of sweat. I'll also hunt Wi during ML season, if we have any decent bucks around.
No worries, I've been warned Dan! lol..
I will be heading out for gun here in Michigan on Nov 15th and will probably hunt the weekends after that until ML season in Dec.
Thanks to nj my season doesn't open till december. And I can't hunt with a rifle either. so I'll hunt with either my 1187 slug gun or the 1100 with buckshot that I took first 2 deer with.
Please let me know when/if you are all checked in, if you have a team name and a captain. Just send me a PM. Thanks.
