You're used to this at this point I suppose. Yes... you're right... I am yet again reporting that there will be no ATF show Friday.
Me and my oldest boy, and my best friend, and his boy, are all going on a full weekend hunt on a private hunting club. I can't adequately describe this place... so instead I'll be posting pictures and generally providing hunting porn.
We do ... ahem... aim... to please.
What we're hunting: Deer. Big damned deer. This isn't the place you go to shoot a meat deer doe. We're looking for big racks. Period.
What we're using:
Jeb is shooting a Browning A-Bolt with BOSS. Black synthetic stock... BOSS... 2.5-10X44 Viper HS optics. Winchester 115 grain Ballistic Tips.
I'm shooting a Sig .300 Win Mag. Zeiss glass. 6.5-20X50. I'm shooting Hornady American Whitetails... 150 grain.
Greg is shooting his raggedy ass... but beloved... Remington 700 in .308. I think it has Zeiss glass too. I think he's shooting ballistic tips... 150 grains.
Samuel is shooting his Steyr bolt action 7m-08. Also Zeiss glass. I think its a 56mm. He's also shooting ballistic tips. 120 grains.
How we're hunting: High end shooting houses. No really. I wouldn't be surprised if they were heated.
I've never gotten to do this kind of over night hunt before... and I've got to say I am stoked. I'll tell ya right now... my worry is pretty simple. When that big 12 point walks out... I have to figure out a way to keep my crap together and let Jeb shoot him.
As great as this is gonna be... its not about me. Its about Jeb and Samuel.
That said... if a couple of 8 points are standing in front of us... We are probably gonna try a simultaneous shot. Don't get me wrong. Priority One is to get Jeb a badass buck to mount.
Just because its the first priority... don't mean its the only priority.
