Prayes for Derek . I backtracked to get the full story. That is tough to loose A foot specially so young. My prayers for a successful surgery and quick rehab and adaption to his new foot.

Very Nice Mike !!
Great Pics !!

I have A S & W 629 with A 6 " Barrel that I bought just for this purpose here in MI. But anymore I Carry my Glock 23 with 200 180 grain Hard Cast bullets. I can simply draw it faster and put st least 2 on target compared to 1 with the 44 Mag.
I have tested thus at the range and bullets in gallons of water. The 180 grain hard cast from the 40 S&W went thru all 6 gallons of water.  A Hornady home defense round went thru 3
The 44 Mag with 240 grain Nosler Partitions was lodged in the back of the 6th gallon jug. I now load it with hard cast bullets. And who knows how many gallons it will go thru. But like 257 said you have to be able to shoot it accurately.
Like in A quick draw contest. I will take the glock for speed and more shots fired. But I do want to swap it for A 10 mm

Can't sneak past A Marine. Nice Jib !!

I here you 224
That 44 mag better have hard cast lead bullets and heavy for caliber bullets to boot.
But what ever you have. You need it Handy.
Traveling in A group it's easy to feel safe.  And I'm sure I would have been in the same boat as the victim in this case. And om always carrying.
Steve Ranela from Meat Eater was in A large group heading back to retrieve A Elk he shot the Night before. It was hanging in a tree. The Group did every thing right. Until that sat down at the tree to catch there breath. And A Brown Bear charged and plowed right thru the group. One guy actually riding on its back for a second. Another guy walked it with a walking stick.
The guy with the gun was separated from it leaving it with his back pack a few feet away.
That group was lucky the sheer numbers confused the bear and they were able to get there wits about them and arm them selfs . And back out of there. To bad they didn't get any footage of that.

That doesn't sound right to me either.  Looking at the ballistics for that round. In the 2002 weatherby chart. With A 300 yard zero it should be 3.1 " at 100  / 3.8" at 200 / 0 at 300 and -9.0 at 400 and -24.4 at 500 yards
In your case I would zero at 200 then see where you are at 50 and 100 and call it good.

Thank you !
Dino I don't know. I never fish down that way. But as a kid I remember going somewhere that way and there were dead fish all over the beach. I think that was a isolated incident.  I have never seen anything like it since.
But a freind of mine walking the shore of Lake Michigan a couple years back found several small dead sturgeon skeletons. That was weird.

I bought a fixer upper boat this summer. And wanted it for a St. Clair river walleye and lake Huron trout and salmon boat.
Finally got it in the water last week and cought nothing . But went back on Saturday as the coho and steelhead are coming in closer to shore with dropping water Temps. And was thrilled to hear the drag sing and a 7 color leadcore set up.
The fish jumped only once . And I handed the rod over to my brother when he wasn't able to extend my net. And it made a few runs for him too.
So we both got to fight the first fish to hit the live well.  27" 8 lb very colorful steelhead.

Very Nice Mike. Looks very Professional!!
And very practical as well.

I drew my bear tag as expected.  Buy I have never hunted in the lower peninsula for bear before.  But I was warned of the dog hunters. And I thought I picked a area with few roads. And the dog hunters are not the problem.  I just have not had any luck getting a bear to come to my bait yet. But there is no cell service so the cameras are only good when I get up there to check. Last week my entire bait was wiped ot by coons. They managed to get under the logs. I will see what happens sat when I head back up. If no luck I'm thinking of donating my tag to A seriously ill person. That would be best my mind is more on salmon fishing ever since I bought a boat anyway.
