This past weekend was a doe only hunt here in Michigan. Due to work commitments, I was only able to hunt 1 afternoon. Wouldn't ya know it, I only had 3 deer within range and they were all bucks.......but 1 was a real dandy.
My girlfriend and I sat on Sunday morning just looking and saw three giants, two of which sparred with each other for about 10 minutes. We had a 160" 10 pointer broadside at 32 yards at 0705. saw countless does and fawns. Sat last night and saw several does but no bucks. I'm gonna get out again Friday morning. I think the bucks are only moving in the morning right now.
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
