That looks nice King. Do you have the socks marked in some way to denote which is which?

I have one. A Inland made at saginaw steering gear here in MI. I bought mine for 400 about 17 years ago. I shoot it in the frozen chosen shooting match every winter. In memory of my dad who carried one in WWII.

Awesome picture!

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Velvet Spike Hunt Video
« on: January 19, 2019, 04:48:58 PM »
Used the night vision scope for a daytime doe/spike hunt. Took a spike still in velvet Friday afternoon. Was using the Vanguard .308 20Ē barrel and Nosler Accubond 150 grain ammo. Shot was approx 180 yards. Noticed when I was gutting him that he had an abnormal amount of fat for a deer his age and size.

The video isnít the clearest since Iím using a night vision scope at 4:45 in the afternoon but I think it worked surprisingly well for the situation. My view from the scope during the shot was actually a decent amount clearer than the video. Donít think Iíd hesitate to use the setup again for a daytime hunt.

Biggest difference is whichever one you think looks nicer!

I really do not get why so many people want to have these rounds ďcompeteĒ with each other. They are both 6.5s and thatís where the comparisons begin and end. The 30-30 Winchester and the .300 Winchester Magnum are both 30 calís too. I donít think many people in their right mind are gonna think they should be comparing their old lever gun to a .300mag.

I do absolutely get that people have lost their dang minds when it comes to the 6.5 Creedmoor though, and I have one. But in no way to I consider it any where in the same league as the 6.5-300 Weatherby.

I completely agree with all the prior comments.

I do the vast majority of my deer hunting out of elevated deer blinds. While some are smaller than others, the number one, biggest problem by far, Iíve run into with crossbows is they will not fit out of the windows of blinds. I did the measuring on all the blinds I currently have and know the Ravin will fit, so the narrow is far more important to me. Iím pretty sure Iíd almost prefer a $2400+ Xbow to feel as much like a rifle as possible. But, Iíll read and watch the reviews on the R29s and try to shoulder one as well.

Here's a little info on the new models. May not be anything you don't already know

Thanks for the link. I hope some reviews/videos from real world users start to show up pretty quickly on these, especially the R29.

The only things I know about Sheriff Israel is regarding his coward Deputy and his defense of that coward so in my opinion it's long over due for him to be sent packing.  If I was that cowards boss I would've gone ape shit over his lack of doing his job and fired him rather than defending him.  To me Israel and the Coward are one in the same with the only difference being their titles.  It's sad they can't do anything to that coward now because he's retired.

 His entire department stood around outside.  The Coral Gables P D went in as soon as they were on scene. Israel's rules said "May enter" which he much later changed to "will enter" .  Israel blamed the officer who basically followed Israel's order as did his entire force on scene. The on scene Captain quit that department a while back for the lack of "on scene action" by Broward County Sheriff's department.  Israel is a politician first!   :) I assume I am hearing a lot more than most others as Scott Israel is a democrat.  The local news covered it pretty closely.

I have read multiple articles talking about how much better of a job local media did in covering and accurately reporting in the Scott Israel mess than the national jokes did.

Probably wouldn't have happened if a democratic governor had stayed in office, so lets hope it goes to court so a prosecutor can expose all the truth and rip the sheriff a new one.

Sunlight is the best disinfectant!

That looks awesome Juan!

Off topic but again Iíd like to say how envious I am that you live in a place where English is definitely a foreign language and you taught yourself so well. I have tried to learn a second language in my life more than once and failed every time. Glad you are a member of Weatherby Nation and hope you have an amazing hunting year!

 Don't be to hard on yourself, you speak Canadian fairly well. ;) :o

I donít understand... what are you talking aboot?
