MY brother flew back to

MY brother flew back to colorado this morning so it just me hunting the rest of the season. I might go out with my uncles again sometime soon.

I have a permit hunt that starts today. I wasn't able to go out first thing this morning but I'm leaving the house in about 15 mins to sit in the stand for a few hours mid day today. Then I'll hit it again this afternoon as well.

The plan is to throw a buck bomb out and pray a big boy comes in. It's about 28 degrees this morning and ice everywhere. A cut corn field sounds like the place to go.

Finally got my new deer rifle

Finally got my new deer rifle put together. It's not really new but new to me. Last month I picked up a 1943 Mosin Nagant 91/30 made in Tula Russia. I sporterized it with a new monte carlo stock in brown. Added a brass stacker see thru scope mount and medium rings. Topped it with a Long eye relief scope for now.

I plan on drilling and tapping and getting a turned down bolt handle eventually but this setup will work for now. Pics of the gun before and after.

I just picked up an API

I just picked up an API BowHunter Climbing stand for my next hunt on thursday. Gonna switch gears a bit and try a new area. Our season runs through Jan 1st so I still have a few weeks to put another deer or two down.

My Mosin Nagant is sighted in and ready to go for the hunt. I'm pretty excited on trying to take a deer with a gun made in 1943.
