Hey uncle b................

This will get your blood pumping! I found this guy yesterday while out looking to kill a few chucks.

A big, fat, old, yellowbelly sitting on a rock is fun to see. Chuck season has begun!

Snapped this pic through my Swaro spotter:



Here's another view:




And here is the first blood of the season: This is what happens to you when you poke your nose out over a rock and an imbound 40 gr Vmax is on it's way at 4000 fps. Nasty.



Ok, lets go kill some stuff together now. I know your trigger finger is getting really itchy!

Re: Hey uncle b................

GG you are a bad man!!!!!!!!!! I have getting by just fine trying to be as patient as I can with load developement. Now you have to go and remind me what is out there waiting for me to give a little chin music to... Dang you.....

Seriously though that is a great picture. Nothing better than a big fat chuck sunbathing. And then disrupting that with a 4 foot gymnastics act in the air. Time to go shooting.

Re: Hey uncle b................

Sorry guys, I was just trying to get Uncle B all excited. Didn't want to ruin your tranquil spring with thoughts of red mist. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

The chuck in the first two pics lived. He positioned himself in a place where I didn't dare shoot him with a gun so I shot him with a camera instead (he lived next to a permanent dwelling that was not farther than 200 yards away). He was about 300 yards from me.

The chuck in the third photo was not so lucky. He was only 287 yards away but all he would show me was his nose so that is where I had to shoot him!

I shot at another chuck at 678 yards in a 28 mph wind with my .223 but never hit the little bugger. Scared him good though with several near misses. The gusts were a bit much for that 40 grain vmax but it was fun anyway. Wish I would have had the fast twist 6br with me but there was no way I was lugging that heavyweight up that ridge just for one chuck!
