56 and counting

So far this season my hunting buddy (Dave7mm) and myself have managed to send 56 woodchucks to see their maker


Although none of the kills this season have been real long shots it is still fun and good practice. My best kill this season is a mere 560 yards.

We had a real funny one a few days ago. This little and I do mean little "chuck" stuck his head (only) out of his hole. By the time I got on him, down he went. He was real close, only about 175 yards. Sometime later he stuck his head out again and stood their motionless. This time I had enough time to get on him. I placed the dot in his left ear and squeezed the trigger. He disappeared imediately. After killing several others that evening we walked the bean feild to check out the kills. When we walked up to this hole he was laying down in his hole. The 52gr berger bullet went right in his left ear. About 75% of his right side of his head was gone. The funny part was that his 2 top teeth were laying on the ground about a foot from the rest of him.


It wasn't a long shot for sure but it was fun.

Have a good one all,

Don

The title of your post caught my eye. I thought, "Oh there's another guy who turned 50 this year". But no, just an interesting story about hunting!

Boyd,

Happy to see your busy,,,,so many people aren't.

The bean plants are up about 4" now. I figure another week, maybe 2 and they will be to high to see anymore chucks. Then we have to resort back to cut hay fields.

The count is now 58.

As far as killing them all,,, I doubt thats possible, but it IS fun trying.

Let me know what days/times your available. We look forward to hunting with you.

Boyd,

The latest count (as of last Saturday) stands at 71 dead chucks


By the end of this week hunting in local bean fields will be next to impossible since by then the bean plants will be to high to see the little runts, lol.

Have a good one,

Don

Took out 8 groundhogs yesterday. 7 of the 8 were heading into the bean fields but were interupted by a Ballistic Tip. 221 Fireball made short work of them all.

Varmint Hunter,

Good going


As of last Sat Dave and myself have managed to send 93 "chucks" to see their maker.

Last Thursday was one of those rare days. I went out around 7pm with my wife. She spotted for me. In the first five minutes, after setting up, I had 4 chucks, dead. By 9pm I had 9 dead chucks in a 15 acre field. It was a great nice for sure. None of the kills were that far away, 420 yards being the furthest, but it sure was fun.

OK Boyd, get over here, quick

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
