Same here. Waiting on a stock I had dipped. Was shipped back on the 22nd from only 2.5 hrs way. Meanwhile I received a new set of does from midway through FEDEX already they wasn’t supposed to get here until Tuesday. I know he shipped it insured but what a hassle.
I have always wondered about a FN57 for bear defense with solids. Seems like a 5.7x28 with a solid would be pretty good. I have no experience with one. (I would if there were cheaper). Anyone have feedback that round. I have a 10mm but the 5.7 has always intrigued me.
This warm up seems to have shut them down around me. Hopefully next weekend they are starting to chase does. It’s a good time of year to be in MI. Good luck, the next couple weeks always seem to be the best.
I’m on the fence on this one. Have a couple pics of him now. He looks like he would be a great deer next year but I don’t think my neighbors will give him a pass.
Not nearly as nice of a photo as the OP. But same predicament.
Muddy boots, I’m from Michigan too and we’re I’m at that deer will not walk past any hunter around me without being shot at. I confess, I’m one of them. 30 years of hunting and nothing like that around my cameras or stands.
Welcome. I’m S.W. of Lansing about 1.45 hr. Lots of good hunting and fishing here in MI. The Great Lakes offer great walleye and salmon fishing too. As for reloading you won’t have to look far. I’m not familiar with the local shops there but I would guess there are a couple good ones.
That’s interesting. I just set up a video camera close to the target, shoot my ladder test, and review the video. I know what order I shot it in so I just mark up my target as the holes show on video. Real cheap since I have an old video camera anyway.
