Re: Tell us about your upcoming hunt

LEN: I'll be hunting in eastern Montana with HVO, same as you. I finally moved to Roscoe, IL, less than 3 miles from the Wisconsin line. I have a 150 acre woods in my backyard, and have been clearing brush to put in a food plot. Also can now practice with my bow off my elevated rear deck. Send me an e-mail, and I'll give you my address and telephone number. Sorry to hear about your bum leg screwing up your Alaska hunt. Hope it's all better before you reach Big Sky country. We'll have to shoot our thundersticks one of these weekends. The movers wouldn't move any of my ammo. It took a number of trips with two cars to get it all here. I've worked up some deadly loads for both my .308, as well as my coyote gun (Remington 40X with a 6X18 Redfield scope).

I have a load for the 300 Win mag that uses Nosler Ballistic Tips, 3150 fps and very good accuracy. Problem is, these should NOT be fired into a deer (or other animal) for a big bone shot at close range, they'll 'explode' and not penetrate well. I've used them before and they're excellent at long range, expansion is even good at low to very low velocities.

This would NOT be a recommended bear load and for anything big or dangerous up closeI'd pack along some Nosler Partitions for the 300 Win mag.

Re: Tell us about your upcoming hunt

Len,

First off, thanks for creating this forum.

My boring hunt consists of driving a whopping 3 miles from my house, walking a whopping 200 yards to my deer stand and waiting for the deer to come out of the woods so I can kill them. My stand is 6' sq and 21' high. I watch over a field that is 750 yards - the longest shot I would have. I have a swivel bench, front rest and rear bag for my 300 win mag to sit on. I push 180gr ballistic tips at a measured 3180 FPS and I use a Schmidt & Bender 4 to 16 X 50 PM scope. I also use Leice Geovid range finder.

Last year I killed a doe at 75 yards (bullet did NOT explode) and another at a measured 388 yards, broadside, double lung shot. That second deer went 30 yards and did a back flip - dead. I am hopefull that a deer will step out of the woods at 750 yards and give me a nice broadside shot.

I truly would like to find someplace to hunt does. What I am looking for is a cull hunt where I can kill 3 or 4 doe a day for 3 or 4 days. Distances of out to 400 yards is fine. My 22 is ready to go. Oops I best explain before people jump down my throat about killing deer to 400 yards with a 22. My 22 is a 22 CHeetah MK 1, push a 52gr berger bullet at a measured 4280 FPS and it works good on whitetail deer - out to 400 yards. If anybody knows of where I can kill 3 or 4 deer a day, let me know [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Two buddies and myself went on a doe hunt last year in South Carolina. The outfitter of this lodge "claimed" it would be easy to kill 4 deer a day. In the 4 days I was there I saw 2 live deer. By the time I got on them somebody else was blazzing away at them.

I see on TV all the time where these hunting lodges/camps have 10 or more doe out on some food plot while the hunter is waiting for Mr Big to come out. I am looking for a place like that, where you actually see a lot of deer everyday and have the opportunity to kill 3 or 4 doe a day. Saying you can kill 3 or 4 doe a day and seeing that many doe a day are 2 different things as my wallet found out last year.

Anybody wanting to know who this outfit was in SC last year, let me know. The guy ripped us off, money wise as well.

Anyway, Len thanks for creating this site and I hope all of you find what you are looking for this season.

Safe hunting,

Don [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
