Rifles / Re: Great deal on a Deluxe Sporter at Walmart

Put a Hogue moldover fully bedded stock on the Vanguard .308. I temporarily put a Caldwell bipod on it and mounted my Swarovski VX5 on it. I ordered the Howa 1500 Mag Conversion kit and a few other goodies. Plan to take it out for break in next week when the temps drop and we get out of the current red flag fire warning.

I have the mag conversion kit on my howa in .308. It feeds very well.

Be safe and take lots of pictures

Thought I was going to get to chase some pigs but that fell through. We are fishing instead down in Texas. All my hunting will be in Indiana this year. Testing out the crossbow and 140 grain SPís in my 6.5-300.

I would like to go after bears again. I donít want to spend as much as I did when I went after them. Especially since my buddy and I had such a crappy time.

Usually they are very close. I get deer that sneak up on me all the time. There is corn directing in front of me and then a little to the south of me. To the left as the picture is taken there is a long draw or a shallow ravine. I get a lot of deer later in the season with a firearm on that side. Where I took the picture my daughters and I have prolly shot 1/2 dozen or more deer standing about 5-10 yards in front of me.
You should see it when there is snow and the corn not being turned over. I like the no till for sure.
90% of the deer I kill is from this spot every year. I get a lot of deer kicked up drove towards me during gun season. Using a bow in this blind sometimes takes a lot of patience and you must wait for the right shot.

During gun seasone we need it on there. Thatís why I usually put it in August or real early September so the deer get used to it. Every state has a dumb law.

I would like to order some .375 bullets like the 270 and 285 grain bullets.

Did some digging and brush removal. I usually put my blind on a hillside so that was where most of the digging went on. Had some tall stuff outside the blind too.
I also moved my tripod. Nothing major there. Moved it about 40 or so yards back so we could see on either side of a ravine.

Glad to see someone posting in the archery section.
Do you post on the Excalibur forum?
These crossbows are really accurate.
