Awww...the bolt threw me. Nice looking rig and congrats on the deer.

Friend passed on a doe yesterday (in some years past he's regretted that later...lol). Didn't see anything moving this am but had plenty of comments about how wet it is out there.

You're probably aware of the recall on that gun? Looks like it was awhile ago for serial numbers M000101 to M015304.

To much corn around here. I hunted about 4hrs to keep the grand kids happy. Nothing.
Life is to short to hunt with a ugly gun.

ya mine came after that. iv heard some say they had trouble with it cycling but iv never had any trouble... if you hit what your shooting at with the first shot cycling dosnt matter any way :lol3:

i was only out 30 min before i shot this doe. my freezer is empty so i knew i was gonna shoot the first one i saw. my shot was the first one i heard. not normal for where i hunt. dont know if everyone stayed home because of the rain or what. so far this year iv spent two and a half hrs hunting and got seven doves one doe. never thought id miss just sitting there waiting. just have not had the time this year.

Way to get it done! I've spent about 10 days in a stand this year with no results. I skip this week though, only shoot a gun at birds....

Got 'er done this morning and still left enough time to get the dog out on a preserve bird invite. Dog always has a good time on those after all the wild bird work.

Thanks guys - it was fun to get out and do it again. I was only out for the meat but Plond owner and I were pretty happy.

Shot those and headed over to help a friend on a preserve hunt, shot 6 easy roosters and spent all day Sunday collaborating on 6 mallards.

Sunrise to sunset sat/sun, did the same last weekend...I think the ole lady is starting to get pissed. :lol3:
