My older model Rem 7600 (which in new condition) is very difficult to release the forearm and magazine. The releases need a lot of pressure to depress. When my hands are cold I must use a piece of wood or plastic too depress them.
Been thinking: How many of the 2004/2005 guys are still here. The threads today are as good and interesting as ever, however I surely miss those 2004/2005 guys that have left for whatever reason. I often wonder where they are now.
I have a pair of Woolrich red and black checked pants size 40. They are the short type with elastic cuffs. Pads on knees and butt. Been packed away for 40 years. One pocket needs a couple stitches. PM me if interested.
Anyone want them. They are going into the trash this weekend. I forgot...
I picked a very nice older Rem 7600 this year. The rifle looks practically new probably because I got it in NJ. Is anyone reloading 30.06 for the 7600?
What powder and 150 gr and 180 gr worked best?
Saw my first action today. Right before dark a 6 or 8 pointer was running a doe for about 10 min. in the wheat field behind this house.
A friend north of me said (2) 6 pointers were hounding a doe, quit for a little bit pushing each other around until a 10 pointer came out of the woods a run...
Sunday morning I put Bill,s Licking Stick Gel and All season scent on a large bush 200 yards behind our house. About 1430 hrs. the wife is at the kitchen sink and says there is a deer stretching his neck up into the branch. Sure enough it was a cow horn spike working the branch. I never seen...
Going to check my hunting area, set up my ground blinds, put out a couple cams.
Also hoping to call in a very large coyote that hunts my area constantly.
Then hit the shotgun season first week in Dec. My best friend "T' (White Schnauzer) helps me listening my hearing is gone(2 Hearing Aids). We...
A doe with 3 little ones showed this week. That makes 7 fawns in the area behind our home. A real nice 8, one with 2 big knobs on each antler and a nice 6 have taken to hitting the soybeans in the afternoon. Deer flies must be bad because I am seeing more deer in the middle of fields during midday.
This morning we saw our first fawn of 2013. It was running around a couple of does which stood there watching it. It looked very healthy and larger than most.
Going to put the trail cam out tomorrow maybe I can get a pic.
Word is it is really bad. I had a dozen does and fawns feeding in the field behind the house. The last month I only see one large doe up until dark. My Spypoints are only showing one doe (not one Buck)at a time plus Coons going into the corn.
Other guys are saying their cover crops are not being...
Need some help with what to buy because my old units won't hold a charge. There are so many out it gets confusing. http://www.huntingchat.net/forum/images/smilies/confused.gif
1. Hold a charge or batteries for at least 4 months.
2. Light, Able to carry in a pocket.
3. IR and color.
I am off to Columbia County next week. I hope there is less pressure and the daytime movement is better. I like to still hunt and the tree standers get upset when you walk up on them. It is my first year hunting the area so I have no idea what to expect. (Non-resident $280.00 Rifle/MZ). Anyone...
What weight broadhead are you using? The best I can determine is that a 100 grain will work well.
I have started practice up to 20 yards and am impressed with my gruops. I always thought the XBow would be superior to a standard bow. I feel it is no better than or maybe equal my H/C...
About 0900 hrs and eight pointer was walking in circles and figure eights around the field out back with his nose on the ground. As usual they have started to get serious on the first cold morning this fall. One of my hounds loose and the buck didn't even glance in the direction of the hound...
