Other Big Game / fL hog hunt
« on: June 10, 2018, 01:43:22 PM »
My daughter and I had another great hog hunt. I got two nice hogs with my Sauer 101 in 338 win mag. Taylor got a real nice red hog with her Vanguard 308 using her own hand loads. This is the only rifle she likes hunting with.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Taylor's Hog Hunt
« on: October 13, 2017, 01:02:04 PM »
Again, my daughter Taylor's Weatherby Vanguard 308 sang out knocking down a nice hog in central Florida 2 days ago. She was using her own hand loads with 130 gr Barnes TTSX that performed excellent as always. She uses this rifle for about everything and knows it well.

She loves her Weatherby dearly and hopes to someday have a Mark V. As you can see, she had me do a camo job to it...in pink of course!

Just wanted to share with you folks!

Rifles / Vanguard S2 375 H&H
« on: February 15, 2015, 12:37:08 PM »
I was looking at the Weatherby site and noticed that Weatherby has FINALLY decided to chamber the S2 in 375 H&H Mag. Does anyone know when this rifle will be available for purchase and where to order it?? Thanks


Hi everyone. My daughter Taylor wanted me to tell you that she got her very first big animal yesterday! A beautiful Texas Dall ram in California!

One shot at 60 yards with her Weatherby Vanguard 308. She is so excited!! She is now hooked let me tell you! She is already talking about her next hunt.

She listened to instruction, and done everything perfect! She is going to be a great little hunter! We now have another youth in the sport!

Sorry to ramble, but I have to say, I am a proud Daddy right now!

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Got my 340 load sighted in!
« on: October 30, 2013, 06:33:54 PM »
Well, I finally got my Mark V ready! I have a load worked up for it that I am going to use on deer and hog sized game. I am loading 89.0 gr of IMR 7828 behind a Barnes 185 TTSX along with Fed 215M primers. My 3 shot group is right at .402". Not too bad for the power of a 340! These loads averaged 3216 fps. more than enough for deer sized game plus some! plus, sighted in 1.25" high at 100 yds. it follows the BDC circles on my Nikon scope out to 700 yds.

My daughter Taylor and I are going after Corsican ram next week so I'll let you know how they perform. Taylor will be using her vanguard .308 Win and a 130 gr Barnes TTSX at 3000 fps. Her load groups around an inch at 100 yds. This is her first big game hunt, and she is super excited! Wish us luck!

Well, Tay and I went out with my Lazermark again and she decided to try and break her own record.... And she did. She was so excited to hit another milk jug, this time at 400 yards! She hit 2 in a row with only one shot each!!

Not the clearest video, but you can get the idea.

I am a proud Dad for sure!

As most of you know, my loving wife bought me a Lazermark 300 Wby a few months ago. Well, I let my Daughter shoot it, now shes hooked!! She is only 16, and has been shooting with me for about 6 months. But I think she is off to a GREAT start!!!!

Check out the video and let me know what you think.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Moving to Arizona!
« on: December 15, 2011, 05:44:00 PM »
Hey guys, I will be moving to Arizona somewhere around March. I was wondering for those of you who live there or have hunted there how the hunting is?? I am excited about the move, but I am a little nervous because the hunting will be SOOO much different than hunting in the South East! I have so much to learn. I understand most big game is on a draw, but you can purchase over the counter tags?? Sounds complicated. I am used to being able to get several deer in a season. The game and Fish website didn't answer a whole lot of my questions. Any info would be appreciated!!!

Thank You

Whitetail Deer / Another doe with my new Lazermark!
« on: November 26, 2011, 05:02:03 AM »
Well, another great day at our local National Forest! I was hunting an area that I had scouted out. The same area that I got my wild boar and another doe in. I was patiently waiting in my hunting blind when at 11:30 this fat doe started easing slowly into my area. She was quartering towards me, slightly angled to my left. A single high shoulder shot at 80 Yards did the trick. The bullet entered high left shoulder, penetrated fully, exiting in the low right hip. Only a 1" exit hole! I love Barnes Triple Shock bullets.

I was using one of my 2 most accurate hand loads for the Weatherby... A 150gr Barnes TSX at 3300 fps. Very little meat damage, and DRT performance as always.

I know it's only a doe, but I am a meat hunter and she will be great on the grill!!

Just wanted to share...

Whitetail Deer / Broke in my new Lazermark!

I went out yesterday to try and fill some doe tags with my new Weatherby and I was blessed with probably the prettiest deer I have ever taken. Not the biggest in the woods, but she'll eat good just the same! My Lazermark performed perfect!!

My Lazermark .300 Wby showed up today! As some of you know, my wonderful wife supprised me with a new Lazermark for no reason other than she is awesome! Well, its finally here! She left for a while this morning and when she returned.....oh boy oh boy!
It is even better than in the pictures! I can hardly wait to take it to the range, develope some good hunting loads and get this thing going!

Just thought I would share!

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / My new Lazermark 300 Wby!!
« on: September 10, 2011, 03:30:48 PM »
I can't believe it!! My loving wife just bought me my dream rifle!! She found it on Gunbroker and bought it! I am so excited...I actually shed a tear...don't laugh. I have wanted a Weatherby 300 Wby for over 30 years. I would day dream about having  one when I was 13 years old. The Lazermark was always my favorite. I never thought I would actually be able to have one...and now I will!

As most of you know, I had some bad financial luck a few years back and had to get rid of all my guns. I had to start again from scratch, with nothing....and now, well I am speachless. I have the best wife a man could have. I am truly blessed.

I know its not brand new, but it's new to me....And its a Lazermark!!

I just had to share guys, Thanks!

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Ordered a new vanguard S2!
« on: August 07, 2011, 06:59:56 AM »
Hello everyone! Well, I took the plunge and ordered a new Vanguard S2 in the .300 Wby. chambering. I am very excited about receiving this rifle. When it comes in I will certainly post pictures and accuracy reports! There should be alot of info for you as we have a 4 1/2 month long deer season and wild hogs have no limit here in South carolina! ;)
My set up will be with either a Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 BDC or a Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40 set in Tally lightweights. I am looking at reloading 165-168 Barnes TSX first and go from there.
