I figure that anything under that distance using a hand gun for hunting (there I am in compliance with this string) will be an easy shot. Not as good as I would like to be at 100 yards, but I am a mean shooter at 75 yards. I use 18.6 gr of W-296 in Winchester cases. WSPM primers all under a 140 grain Remington SJHP or a 140 grain Hornady XTP HP.

Oh...By the way...A lot of men carry purses in california...I'm just not one of them... Cheers

Tomorrow morning at 5:30 will be in the tree lines for the start of the east River Deer season. Super Redhawk in holster and trying to stay warm. Should be a good day though. We have had some cool weather this week 9 degrees in the AM moving to a high of 28. winds blowing. This should get them moving alittle. The sloughs are iced over, but not hard yet. You can hear the geese migrating at night. The snow geese are starting to move south and the northern ducks are moving fast now. Last saturday all the water was open. Now all the water is closed for business. Moving the birds out into the fields. Which raises the question should I take my shotgun? Often I am in the tree line and a flock of geese fly over at about 40 feet wings spread feet down, coming in for a soybean snack.

What to do ?

Opening day came and went. For the first time in a while, we had rain for the deer season. The gumbo was sticky as ever and the boots gathered about 6 pounds each step. The roads were "slick". The deer were out and about. Saw lots of bucks. I think because of the warm temperatures the deer waere more active than usual. I had a fork horn buck sneek up behind me wind in my face put my sent on his snout. and he just kept coming. At about 20 feet he seemed to get the idea, and just walked away. He spent the next hour sniffing along a north south fence line. Then had a 3 point come beep boppin along from the east. He would run a head then turn and run back the way he came. He did this about 5 times. Had a nice Doe came up moving at a fast walk. Put one just behind the shoulder. The .429 jhp did the trick, but didn't drop her right away. Passed right through. Upon close inspection the back half of the heart was removed. How you continue with that kind of damage is anyones guess.

My son found himself a nice doe that turned out to be a button buck. Shot him at about 50 yards from a tree stand. Dropped him. Almost no blood outside the body. The 150 grain 30-30 bullet hit the heart dead center. Anyone that thinks a 30-30 is to light think again. I guess with no pump there is only leakage to take place.

Both deer are boned out and ready for final cutting and packaging.

Tell your son Congrats from me Longwalker! All deer are trophys.
I am still sick and can barely type from coughing so hard, the kids are mad because they usualy get to go with me and set in the blind for good luck, the bad luck beat them to the punch this year. OH well, there is always Black powder season in December, I'll load up the Ruger old army and the Penn. Hunter and decide which to use when the time is right.
Good luck guys!

Inlaws in town starting tomorrow. Nothing brings me more joy that to have a deer or two hanging in the garage for my Mother and Father inlaw. Both of them from New York, they never even imagined such things. Now their little girl lives out there with the savages, animals hanging from the rafters and blood on the floor. Isn't life grand?
