Put a feeder out on an average of 60 yards. That is about what they call long shots.100 yards is very odd to find.

Wellllllll.... This season hunters have taken five deer on my land (that I know of). Friend got a doe at right around 100 yards, not bad. Then I got a pair of bucks, 4 and 7 points at 200 yards, (within a minute if each other, probably less,) paced it off. While I was hiking back to the barn to get the tractor, first guy got a 8 point at 384 yards. Yeah, I paced that one off too! Then in the evening son got a doe at 200 yards - measured that shot before. New son-in-law, first time hunting deer with us, is dumfounded! We're going to have to do something with his 30-30 borrowed from his mom before next season! Did I mention we're hunting over open hay fields?

> 8 point at 384 yards<< With a 30-30 too? If that is what did the job I would say this was a great shot.Iron sights too?

No, no, guys - the 384 yarder was with a .300 Weatherby mag. 200 yarders were with a .240 Weatherby mag. Son used a Remington in .243 Win - all scoped. Son-in-law is going to have to upgrade significantly to keep up with that kind of competition!

one of the first hunting shows i watched (mebbe 20 yrs ago) had a new england bear hunt where the bear was shot while eating out of a can/drum. what a joke! (travesty)

You must not live in bear country...

Les    Posted 11-23-2004 at 18:08:06       [Reply]  [No Email]
I only shoot bears from my kitchen door. Haven't had to do that for a few years. Maybe I helped the gene pool by eliminating the stupid ones.

Nothing tastes better than nice fresh steaks from a Bear that has been eating day-old doughnuts and pastries for a month...

Can't argue with that...

Many would like to be on the animals back so he can get a good shot.Ha ha!

In SE Texas where we are that is probably smart.
You could hardly see any further for all the trees and brush!!

Now out in the open west Texas spaces, a fellow sitting 60 feet from his feeder would be very visable, I would think.

That is one of the things I like about Texas, it has a little of everything you could want!

Same for West Texas.My brother was a guide for a long time.I talked him into moving stands out to two hundred yards ,The braggers showed up and complained that it was like five hundred yards.But they quit bragging.

I heard the Laotian that shot the hunters had a high powered assault rifle. Then I looked up the thing to check it out.The newsmedia as always tells those kind.It was the Russian SKS. Semiauto .Less powerful than the Winchester 30-30.The only advantage that round has over the thirty thirty is the sharp point on the bullet.The case holds less powder.High power is a Win 270,Springfield 30-06.Rem 7MM Mag. The weak link that makes the SKS look poweful is the fact that human skin is not very thick.

Les    Posted 11-23-2004 at 18:10:13       [Reply]  [No Email]
Maybe human skin ain't very thick but some human skulls are.
I have a Chinese SKS. Nice little rifle. It's only an "assault rifle" to the boneheads who don't know much about weapons.

I don't know much about weapons so I had to look over the word "bonehead" in Merriam-Webster..

ret    Posted 11-23-2004 at 18:41:50       [Reply]  [No Email]
guess I got one too, nice little bayonet on the end of it. CZ 52 , but shoots an odd caliber.7.62-45. Never shot it, but it sure looks wicked.

They look dreadful with a pig sticker on em.

Can't disagree with ya there. I don't have no toad stabber on mine. The thing is ugly enough without it.
But ammo is plentiful and cheap. And I only give $79 for the rifle. Probly worth a couple hunnert by now.

Clod    Posted 11-23-2004 at 18:20:38       [Reply]  [No Email]
Better every way than the M1-M2 carbine the US had. That thing was useless even for the upper buttstoke.Ha ha!

HEY!    Posted 11-23-2004 at 18:26:17       [Reply]  [No Email]
I love my M1...

Hollow points and that is a varmints worst nightmare...


PS.....Not to mention I just love having a 'weapon' that was made by IBM...Kinda poetic in a weird sorta way...

Clod    Posted 11-23-2004 at 18:54:28       [Reply]  [No Email]
I have had the M 1 and M2 handed to me and thought of carring a big rock in my pocket just for insurance.

I have an SKS and have shot an M-1, I would rather have the M-1, handy little rifle if ya ask me (yeah, I know, nobody asked me). SKS is real reliable, but not real accurate, not consistant. It is however, my home defense weapon. No bayonet, no bayonet mount anymore either. Also no cleaning rod or holder. But I did refinish the stock and fore-arm in dark cherry. Looks much better. Added a 2 inch pad to the stock, my arms are longer than most chinese I think. Added a short scope also. Have nearly a thousand rounds of assorted ammo for it.Still would rather have an M-1, but they are a little expensive for me.

Now if the SKS was chambered for the 223 Rem/5.56 round and still functioned as well as it does(and at the same price) that would be the best home defense rifle deal you could find,If you loaded with Nosler ballistic tip bullets. They make big holes.

i grew up with the old lee enfield 303, learned to do most everything with it.
