Re: Thanksgiving Hunt - long write up

Thanks for the writeup. Looks like you had a lot of fun.

Been out only one day since rifle season began and only scared one away in the dark on the hike out. I will have to be patient this season to get a look at a couple mature buck's on the land I hunt in Faquier--south and West of Quantico.

Keep us appraised of how it keeps going for you and the rest of your season. All the best.

Matt

The great thing about using an F-class rifle for hunting is you know its going to hit exactly where you aim.

Congratulations on two very nice deer.

Bucks will nearly always repopulate an area that holds habitat that they prefer so this spot should be good for many years to come.

Re: Thanksgiving Hunt - long write up

Thanks for all the positive comments and glad you enjoyed the write up, i enjoyed the hunt so much i got quite carried away writing this post, and when i finished i posted it into microsoft word and realized it's almost 1,500words...

Yes using my f-class gun was pretty cool once i was in position as it is very stable and balanced right on the monopod, however the monopod slowly sunk into the mud about 8" till it hit some harder dirt since it had 14.5lb of rifle on top.

Trebark,
Yep great photos, thanks man!

Next weekend will be LR hunting on my buddy's farm where you can see to over 2000yards. Not too bad for VA and less than an hour from home! However since I only have my .308 win set up right now i'll limit myself to between 600-900+ depending on conditions. Last time Trebark and I sat out there everything was perfect with the prevailing condition being <1 mph wind with gusts to 2, in that kind of wind I'll shoot a deer at 1k with my .308.
So I'll see what happens and hopefully have another successful hunt to report back on!


Good luck to everyone else, I really enjoy reading others hunting stories so please post those you have!
