Cool!

Don't know much about Sitkas, other than they taste good on the fire. Not trying to be mean but is that a young one or do they all have spots like that? I know they run on the small size. That would make a cool hide to tan and make a quiver out of.

Good lookin' pup!!! He has that deer covered... "Go on, make a move! I dare ya!"
You can tell a lot about a woman's mood just by her hands. If they are holding a gun, she's probably angry.

No there not big thats why the meat is so coveted....this one was mature, when I gutted it out it had a baby growin in there! Spots are usually are gone by now but I saw 4 this morning 2 with and 2 without and all but one was mature??? They do have cool lookin hides.

You need to trade in that '06 on a 45-70. It kills stuff deader than dead and doesn't do all that damage to the surrounding meat.

If I were in the market for a new hunting rifle this would be it. I like my other rifles but this is the finest hunting rifle made IMHO.

Quit shooting them in the darn shoulder, would you? Just pull that shot back about 4"...they'll still be dead and we'll have more meat for Baltimore! ;)

Between the two of them...you've got about enough to cover PAarcher...what are you going to do about the rest of us hungry souls? Nice shootin'! :mrgreen:

Nice !...is that a BMC ?
When you take your kid hunting and he says thank you and tells you how much he loves being in the woods with you, your day just isn't going to get any better than that.

Jeff...love the weight of the gun and it shoots better than me!!! Shooting Hornady slugs out of it, would like to get some work done on the trigger but not complaining at all. I dont use a gun enough to play much with it but most of our area is slug only and it works well out to 200 yards wihich is about 150 yards further than Id like to shoot LOL!!!!!!!

Tim.....BMC?
