Thanks, it's an average sized buck. I have seen much biger lying in the back of other people's trucks but for me it's a good size. I never thought should have been standing beside it to give a comparison of size. I will post another picture with a little of the back end of the truck showing.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
