    [?] after ducking all the bull in the 223 post I'm really confused for tomorrow...I was debating weather to take the Ruger RSI .308 or the old reliable Marlin 336 in .35 rem with the peep on it. GEZZ...now i have to add the old Sav 222 and my .219 zipper to the pile to pick from ???? dang big ole Varmit Deer eating all the corn messing with the farmers proft.[V].. almost as bad as the dang blasted groundhogs in the soybeans. Good lucks guys,make clean kills. [:D] [:D]

    Pa. if you like Handgun hunting get yourself a Contender in .35 rem ..you'll never go back to the 44mag. my buddy just bought a used one in 45-70 gov. now thats a hunk of lead ya whack a Deer with that he won't have to wonder if it was a V load[:p]

    My dad has been complaining about the Jersey hunters coming on the family property for years...usually with no licenses and no orange.

    Ole pops took a block of wood and bored a 1 inch hole in it, filled her with blackpowder and plugged it off. Threw it on their cabin wood pile.


    Dang Jersey hunters.

    Hey you big strong outdoors type people. Better not forget to look over your shoulders from time to time.

    Ya see, I loaned all my guns to the deer in Pennsylvania. [xx(][xx(]

    In Kansas our season opens Wednesday. I am going to have to miss the morning-but will be there with orange on for the evening hunt-as well as Thu-Fri-Sat. Have sighted a 10 pointer in my area. My 15 year old is going Wed. morning and eve. with his Grandpa. Hope he gets the big one, as it's his first hunt. (For deer). Makes me real proud that he is interested.

    Searcher5: wonder how many will go down on the 2nd.[:0][:D] Ill bet quite a few.

    Pa: you mean that Pensylvania will let you use .223 to take deer? Here in Kansas the smallest caliber that is allowable is the .243, with the exception of the 44 Mag.

    Any centerfire rifle is legal here! All us boys started hunting with my dads 222! My son killed his first deer with my 22 Hornet. Most around here use 243 or bigger as a rule!!

    Bolt-I'm sure some will. Not to me or mine, though. We follow the game regulations. I want to have the right to hunt until I am physically unable to do so.

    &mmNut, You've got 2 great choices in your arsenal!!! The 7BR and the 25-06!!!! You've never busted one up side the head with them 120VMax's from the BR so take it for sure! It will hang across your chest and you can carry the 25-06 across your shoulder! Over 300 yards...25-06!!!! hahahahahahahaha[:D][:D]GHD PS: Just finished working up 4 of them oversized varmints tonite!!! Groundhogs are a lot more fun....ain't got to gut em and skin em!!!!!!!
