Well, deer season opens up here next weekend.

Last year, I picket up a Ruger M77 in 30.06 from a guy my father in law works with. It came with a 3x9 bushnell scope on it.

Well, we went to the range last year to sight it in. My first set of rounds were astonishingly well grouped and petty well on at 75 yards. I didn't bother to tweak the scope at all. As it was, it was dead on.

This afternoon I took it out for the first time since last season, and that sucker is still dead nuts on at 100 yards. I couldn't have been happier with my first set of groupings this afternoon, so I put it away and played with the garand for a while. Zero is off a little on that, but still close enough to hit what I was aiming at.

So.

Question for the deer hunters:

What are you hunting with this season?

You know, I've never, ever tagged one with my car- I'm fortunate in that respect I guess. I watched my father hit one while I was following him once. That was amusing.

I can't go this year I had to haggle away my opening weekend days off in order to get off to run a half marathon.

Oh well, there's always next year.

Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

I may leave the 20 ga 870 home this year and try to get one with grandpa's model 12. If I have no luck in shotgun season, TC Hawken .50

Gross Anatomy is preventing me from hunting this year, but I would be using my old Savage Arms .30-30.

I mostly hunt with my Remington 710 in 30x06.  But I want to take deer with my AR and moist nugget this year too.  I got lucky on my $70 online nugget, 3 inch groups at 100 yards, 7 inch at 200.  Putting rounds through a pie plate at 200 yards with an 83 year old gun does something to me.

I don't hunt with it anymore, I target shoot with it though.

Savage .25-06 with a Tasco scope on it.  Good little cheap gun.  I really prefer the Tasco to my Bushnell scope.

Well, I would be hunting with my M1 Abrams, but the government has some sort of strange ban on hunting with tanks.
