I don't hunt anymore, but the best wild game I ever tasted was ringneck pheasant.

Deer, my Bronco bumper. Big doe,hit it just right, my buddy said it died instantly. His family had hit a bad spell so I gave it to him, he made the bar self service while he went to gut it and turned me on to some fantastic beer sticks and salami.

Mostly pheasant, duck, and deer.

Don't hunt hardly ever anymore but still go to the range to let off some steam occasionally.

AR15 bull barrel target in 5.56
Favorite gun is a savage 17HMR though.

2-votes for Schmitty ( I do have to try more of the distant cuisines don't know till you have sucessfully hunted and tasted it)

How do you like the 45/70 ? Haven't tried that one

Knocked that big ole Buff right down.  It's a hoot to shoot with black powder equivalent loads.  Kind of like shooting a .410.

I haven't been hunting a lot lately but in the last 6 years have been blessed to harvest a 7 foot 1inch 'Gator as well as 2 meat hogs on was around 40-60 pounds and the other around 100-135.

Killed the hogs with 2 different 30-06s and the Gator with a 22 Hornet+.38 Special.

Leaving Friday for so. Utah Desert Bighorn hunt, my buddy drew the tag which is a "once in a lifetime tag" in Utah. We are going to be down near the Arizona border, getting tons of rain right now.

Pheasent, quail and gator are on the menu, 70FB get them cams up, gmsmkr Iam I invited to the pig roast, oh yeah feed them coyotes to the dogs, mike r I am guessing that bumper isn't stock nor is the motor, YES it died instantly, add duck to the munu, 61 coon you scare me hopefully the motion dectors, cameras, or the 12ga defender do the trick, sweet 45/70 I have been eyeballing the 4rd Henry version 45/70, 11' buy in for gator...lol, 4th Pony (sry for the abbreviation but I am a FORD guy) I don't want to eat the racoon or porcupine (i don't think...hmmm) but make sure you get a Boone& Crocket from your hunt...I think I covered it. cheers

Wow, some big gators!, I don't think I have ever seen a gator rug not the texture I would expect...here is is bear, bear, bear,cougar (all the rest are metophoracally speaking wolf, coyote, martin, deer +++). Diamond back's and gators make some phenomonal boots, but I have to travel a ways to get me a pair.

338 Lapua

358 Sledgehammer Magnum ... My own creation ...

7mm Rem Mag

6.5x284

And 308 Win

I checked into that I needed 2 Gators with similar grain on their hides and they needed to be at least 6ft.

I used a 338 Dakota cartridge case and necked it UP to 35 caliber ... Then when I did the chamber, I just used the reamer for the 330 Dakota, and used a 35 caliber neck reamer to get the right neck diameter ... Currently there are only 2 of these rifles in existence, and I built them both ... One of the most impressive elk cartridges out there, as it will push a 250gr bullet at 3050-3080 fps ... Which from what I've seen firsthand, is very effective on elk and bigger ...
