How close to the coast are you Scrum?


Not in this case SVT! We're about 50 miles from the sea. Maybe a bit less

"G", now that we have moved to N Ga. I'm closer. If you need any help with anything give me a call. I've been through several flooding events... they suck bad.

Good to hear from You G.

Sunny here with temps going to 93 today.

Have a cousin getting buried today, he was 89 and owned the funeral home I visited him at yesterday. It was good to see his kids and their families. His 3 kids are in the same age range as me so they are who I related to growing up. Debbie, the oldest (just a little younger than me) married a lawyer and moved to his home State of Nevada, and her husband is now a Judge in Ely.
Jeff, the middle child, now runs the funeral home, and since it's in a small town in western Kentucky it is quiet successful; people are just dying to get in (my cousin's quote).
John the youngest was a special kid, he was one of the goofiest kids I ever knew, and I'd have to beat him up almost every time we got together; he and we, were always in trouble when we were kids. John played basketball for the University of Texas, and coached until about 18 years ago. He has 2 sons that played major league baseball, One for the Rangers, and one for the White Sox. He also has a daughter that played volley ball for Ohio State. All his kids took after him, I'm 5'10" and John has to look down to count the freckles on top of my head. I'm just glad he does,t hold a grudge. John is still living around Austin, Texas.
It was good seeing them. I just hate getting together with family because we're at a funeral, so I got contact info and warned them I'd be coming to stay at their house for a couple of weeks.

The last time I was in Ely, Nevada the heat wasn't working in the motel room. I wound up with a horrible cold. It was February and snow up the wazoo....

Yeah, Debbie's husband said it gets below zero in the winter, and not that hot in the summer; said the elevation was over 6,000 feet.

We are getting over the 5.77" of rain from Friday. Cooled off and down to 65F this morning. Cloudy and still wet. So I am sorting a large box of receipts collecting by the bedside table that have been collecting over the last few years. Oldest so far is 02. Most are from the past 3 years. I place receipts in my shirt pocket during the day and put them in the box for keeping. Procrastination can be tough at times. Confused

Feels like it here too Pedler.

Next weekend off to hunt muntjac.

Question  for you folks:

Going for a small deer such as muntjac.

17"- 20" at the shoulder and 20-40lbs body weight, what would you use?

Choices are:

CZ527 in .223 Rem, zeroed for 200yds with 62 gr Federal Fusion
FN Commerical in .257 Roberts, zeroed for 200yds with Federal Premium 120gr Nosler partition

Both rifles are topped with German or Austrian scopes, 3-12x50 with illuminated dot, No 4 reticles.

Let me know your thoughts.

Scrummy

Morning all,

Well, 40F (was 37F first thing!) here this morning, bright sun and the leaves are starting to turn. Feeling like autumn and hunting season.

Went and shot a competition this weekend at 200yds

Chamois Target

5 shots prone

5 shots sitting with a single stick support

 

Sitting fox target

5 shots sitting with twin sticks

5 shots standing with twin sticks

 

Shot OK on the chamois, rubbish on the fox score wise but all would have killed it

 

Still, all set for hunting this weekend! I have a 404J but I think a bit much gun for a muntjac. Maybe my 9.3x62 a good compromise? Tempted to use the 257 Roberts as also legal if a fallow deer steps out.

 

Scrummy

 Morning all.

 

Sounds like a fun shoot you had Scrum.   Was it a club event or just friends?

Hi SVT, was a shoot put on by my club. If you win either the fox or the chamois, you get a Stein!
