I killed this 9 point buck the first day of blackpowder season here in VA, I have it at the taxidermy now, but I was wondering if any one who know about what it would score? it had a 22 3/4 inch spread.
140 is the round-about-figure that I have received from other people. I am gonna ask the guy whos mounting it for me to measure it. I figure he should know how to score it! Here is also a lil better picture to show the details better.
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....
