Opening of dove season was a little slow. I do plant based meals so I did not need a limit of birds. I am ready for deer season. I purchased a 5 1/2lb. bolt action rifle with iron sights this year. I had the gunsmith glass bed the stock and the stocker put 25 coats of oil on the stock. I waited and ammunition became available(free shipping too). I purchased a .410 O/U for a S.C. quail hunt coming up. The stocker is oiling this stock also. This year our wild boar hunt is planned for Magnolia N.C.. I hope we can have several sporting clay social shoots at various clubs in N.C. this year. Even if you do not hunt, get outside and enjoy the outdoors. Life is short and covid-19 is real. Stay safe.

What kind of rifle did you buy? I bought a new hunting rifle for this season too. It looks like I’m. It going to get to use it because of work. I bought a Ruger Alaskan guide rifle in 375 Ruger and topped it off with a Vortex Viper 1-6.

Bear started Sep 1st in Vt and last Tues in Ma.

This one is still bothering my orchard and berries, he's BIG!

I'll be using traditional TC Renegade caplock MLers, 0.50 0r 0.54 with GM fast twist barrels, and 50/385gr (buffalo bullet co) or 54/425gr (Hornady GP) conicals .

Here is the 50 at 50yds with 385gr opens, 5 shots. That's about on at 75yds and 2" low at 100. Won't take shots farther than that
