Blackie.....Are you doing burns all day? That raspberry preserves, sugar, raspberry tea or punch burn was great for me. I'd get some of that Capri Sun and splash around on the trees and logs. I haven't been doing this long, but If he hasn't been around for awhile he may just be a big boar that is going around his home range and hitting the food spots. One book said that a boars home range can be upwards of 40 square miles. Hopefully he's not sitting in someone elses' freezer. Other than getting some unbelievable scents into the air & woods it may just be a patience thing until he gets back to your site. Are you doing all you can with scent mgmt. and movement? Could he have seen you or your daughter and abandoned the site?
If you're not doing burns....HotMoon had talked about 6 hour or more sterno.....I couldn't find it by me but he said to try camping stores.....maybe this would help so you could keep it going longer......also, I did two burns, one down at my site up in a tree and the other up in a tree next to my stand......I could feed it throughout the day when the sterno went out.....more ideas.
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...
