Hey wow, thanks Danno. I would not have seen that if you hadnít posted. There is currently a used .243 Vanguard I am looking at and mulling over along with thinking about potentially killing 2 birds with one stone and getting one of the Savages w/ a predator barrel in 6.5 Creed that Terminator posted about a while back. Iím slow playing this decision a bit a cause one day I think I have my mind made up to go in a certain direction and then I flip-flop the next. I suppose I need to just pull the trigger so I can start pulling the trigger.

Good looking gun!

Thanks for the heads up!

I replaced my trigger with a Timney. I also replaced my original Vanguard S2 stock with a Bell & Carlson stock I ordered from Weatherby.  I had to file a small bit of material from the safety notch in the stock to allow the Timney safety to move to its fully forward position so the rifle would fire. I don't know if you will need to do this with your original stock or not. So, I'm mentioning this just in case you do.

While it wasnít me that did it, I bought a Vanguard used form a guy who had installed a Timney, he had to do the same thing. Great trigger.

I donít know if this will help anyone but I have trouble logging on at home a lot. There I primarily use my phone. When I turn my wi-fi off and use cellular data, it will always let me on. Once in the site, I can turn wi-fi back on and everything works as normal.

They live in Hope, Arkansas and we were hunting 2 different areas. One was north of town a little ways and the other was west(?) I believe. It has been quite a while since I hunted with them. They still hunt the same areas as far as I know.

He draws a tough defense tonight! Hereís hoping for a big game from him!

Roughly Archery is end Of September-February 15.ML is October 21-27 and like December 28-31.Rifle is private land doe only October 14-18 and regular season is 2nd weekend November-2nd weekend December and then December 26 and 27.Rough dates but very close by memory.I usually get in a week for archery or early ML then a week Thanksgiving,and December 26-31.Deer aren't usually very good and get very nocturnal from all the locals hunting all that time.Fun being there with others of family that come.About a 8 hour drive for me.

I have some distant relatives that live/hunt in Arkansas. I have been up there and hunted with them a few times, but it was a long time ago. I remember the seasons being a little more confusing than the TX one. Shot my very first deer in Arkansas when I was 9 years old, a small basket rack 6 point.

How does your season break down as far as ML/archery/center fire up in Arkansas?

Youíve got some pretty uppity deer in your area if they are not impressed with that rifle.

TV and air conditioning at deer camp without have to get a motel room is a sweet, sweet setup. I went down to my place for a little work and sitting with the Xbow yesterday. TV and A/C set me back 70 bucks for the evening.
