  • My son Dylan 9 yrs. old was very pleased with this six pointer. It came in at 7:45 a.m. and he droped it in it's tracks with his 223. We will always remember this father/son time together!

    A comment titled: Rem. 300 ultra mag. 'Ole Bertha' in response to a report titled: new gun

    Remington Model 700 BDL 300 Rem. Ultra Magnum topped with a Leupold VX-III is an awesome cannon. I realize Its a bit over kill (and it will rock your world!) for whitetail in most hunting situations, but I have never had to track a deer when hunting with 'ole Bertha'. The drawback is its expensive to shoot, about $3.25 a shot. My second choice is my trusty Ruger M77 7mm Rem. Mag. topped with a Nikon Monarch 2.5x10x50, I call her Ole Bessie. The main thing is that you buy a rifle/scope/ammo that you are comfortable with and can shoot a good group at a 100 yds. I have never owned a 30-06 but I have heard it is the best all around caliber for big game with a large selection of different loads.

    A comment titled: meaning of ethic / ethical in response to a report titled: This is how it's done

    ethic: The discipline dealing with what is good and bad and with moral duty and obligation. ethical: Conforming to accepted standards of conduct. It is good that one wears blaze orange while deer hunting (safety). It is accepted standard that one wears blaze orange while deer hunting (law). It is our moral duty to obey the law that requires blaze orange while hunting for our and others safety. By the way nice buck Bubba!

    A comment titled: waiting It out. in response to a report titled: Hunting the big ones

    There are still many nice bucks out there. They just get alittle wiser as the season goes on. They should be hitting the food sources hard since breeding is winding down and they need to regain strenght and weight for the rest of the winter. Good luck to you both!

    A comment titled: thieves among us in response to a report titled: Thief in the woods in Caswell Co.

    It makes me sick to hear stories like this. We all work hard and invest alot to have a place to hunt and do things right and some low life takes it upon themselves to trespass and steal another mans property. This type is also the ones who slip in and hunts anothers land, hunts out of season, spot lights deer, takes more than the legal limit of game, and throws carcasses along the side of the roadways for all anti-hunters to see. And they have the nerve to call themselves hunters. I DON'T THINK SO !

    A comment titled: .223 legal for deer or not? in response to a report titled: happy little hunter

    It is perfectly legal to hunt whitetail with .22 cal. in NC as long as it:(1) meets the federal firearm guidelines, and (2) rifles are allowed for big game in your area/county. Davidson county has no restrictions on caliber or rim/center fire rifles for deer hunting. I encourage the use of a larger caliber when one is ready for it, but for a little hunter the .223 with proper ammo selection is a great starter. Now let's go hunting!
