Most hunters shoot the wrong gender.Everyone I know goes for the big boars.That's the exact opposite you need to do if trying to lower their numbers.

I will say 1 thing about each.

Some 6 or 7 years ago a TP&W game biologist said that once you see hogs,in your area,being hit on the highway that they were beyond eradication.I have communicated this before on WN.He said they are such smart animals and learn to adapt that if you see them start to get run over on the hwy that their numbers are so high you'll never get rid of them in that local vicinity.

In my personal dealings with coyotes I have found that I can kill them off a place for only 1 or 2 weeks.I might shoot 3 or 4 and I won't see any for a bit.The next thing I know I'll see 1 or 2 running together regularly.I'll take them out and soon there will be more.In my country all you have to do to realize your way out numbered is to listen to the groups talking when the sun goes down.I have had the hair stand up on the back of my neck several times leaving the deer stand after dark and walking back to the truck.Several will start yipping to the right and you think oh just a couple coyotes then you hear some to your left or behind you.They know your there and are talking to each other about you.

Buy a Timney for it.

In most base screw sets there is a long screw and a shorter screw for separate/thicker ends of the base.It is easy to put a longer screw into a place where the short screw should go.

Depends on caliber and barrel length.German made rifles were produced from 1959 to 1973.Japanese manufacturing started in 1972.

I'm just wondering about you having a really bad case of parallax the way everything was set up?

It doesn't matter if they look at you and ask DOB,it's when they want your DL and then they right everything down and make a written account of you.

"Your scopes mounting screws may be protruding slightly into the rifle chamber causing closing problems"

This is the first thing I thought of as I read this post.Good call Dan

How does the bolt work without trying to cycle a round?
