    Cleaning kits

    Oh boy, talk about opening a can of worms, lol! Besides my personal arsenal I spent 30 years in the Army shooting and cleaning weapons so I’ve got some experience. I have two kits of brushes and tips. One is brass brushes and is pistol, rifle and shotgun with all the associated tips and...

    Red Dot sight

    First year I had my 7600 I mounted a 30mm Pentax red dot. Shot a 4pt while still hunting at 20 yards but I realized that at any distance much beyond that I’d need some magnification. It now wears a Redfield 2x7.

    Weight

    Always completely empty before weighing. Depending on dragging conditions (terrain, snow/no snow, distance, and helpers) I may leave the heart/liver/lungs in or I may discard them at the kill site.

    Thanks all for your comments. Not sure yet what the asking price will be but when I do find out I’ll let you know what the outcome is.

    Trijicon 3x9x40

    Yes, that’s the one. His is the non battery powered one, the Accupoint.

    Trijicon 3x9x40

    Does anyone have one of these? Hunting friend is selling one and I’m interested. It has the red triangle reticle and will probably go on a Remington 788 in .308, my “sitting” rifle. Not sure yet what he’s asking for it but if he’s in the $500 range I think that’d be about right. Thoughts??

    What would you do different?

    One more thing I forgot to mention. I trimmed down what I carry so that everything fits in jacket, vest or pants pockets. No more belt pack and what a big difference that made n my lower back...

    What would you do different?

    First, practice shooting more in the off season. On 3 different occasions this year I “short stroked” my 7600. Once on a deer, once on a bear and once on a coyote. Not a good thing to hear a click instead of a bang when you’ve got an animal in the scope. Next, new scopes, leupold 2x7 freedoms...

    Who is Still Hunting?

    This Saturday will be my last deer hunting day this season with the ML down in MA. It’s been a great year. Started with bowhunting at home here in VT, then a week long bowhunt in OH where I shot a nice 9pt. Then home for a couple more bow sits followed by a week of ML and rifle in Pittsburg NH...
