25-06 shooting a 120g Nozler Partition has killed more mule deer and antelope for me than any other gun. It's comfortable to shoot, will reach out and do the job. Most of my shots have been on the 200-400 yard range.
I broke the stock on my 25-06 and bought a new 270WSM, But I will buy another 25-06.
My .264 Win Mag that I just finished building on time for deer season. I have two Colorado tags, a New Mexico tag, a California tag (which I may eat, not sure I can pull that one off too) and two Maine tags for her to fill with me this year. 140 gr Nosler Partitions, 65 gr. IMR 7828SSC, Federal Gold Medal Match Primers. Velocity 3150 fps out of the 27 inch Lilja barrel. Mild recoil, long bullets for good penetration and high ballistic coeffecients. Sweet shooting gun! Been borrowing my buddy's custom .264 off and on for years before I built mine.
How many times have you wished for a better view across a clear cut, an agriculture field or down a powerline?
Ever wanted to get a little higher to try to get above a deer’s nose?
Have you ever wanted a taller stand because… well… just because?
Here is an example of a stand I made a few years ago and it has some very real advantages and a few disadvantages.
commanding view from the stand
able to accommodate two hunters, perfect for parent / child hunts
hunters are well...
