  1. I bought the Rampage 360 and got the Acu-Draw model, glad I did because after using the Acu-Draw I wouldn't have it any other way. Did take a big nanny doe back in bow season with it, didn't make it 40 yards before piling up.
  2. Just under 50 yards, using shooting sticks as a rest.
  3. No deer today but did break in the Taurus Raging Hunter 460 on this joker. He didn't take another step after that hammer fell.
  4. Got this 8 last week here in Scott County.
  5. I just picked up a Taurus Raging Hunter in 460 S&W and my main goal is to try and take a deer with it. Got it and 60 rounds of ammo off a buddy for $550 and couldn't pass it up for that. I've got it sighted in at 25 yards and can shoot a 2.5in 3 shot group with it. Would this be a acceptable grouping for deer sized game out to 50 yards? Later on my plan is to put a red dot on it but as of now just using the irons.
  6. Pulled the boat outta hibernation yesterday and went after some cats. Caught quite a few dinks but did manage to put two tanks and one good fish in the boat. Bait used was crappie and yellow bass.
  7. Was out this afternoon doing a little bit of squirrel hunting on some public land here in East TN and walked up on a decent public land 9 point munchin on some acorns. Really didn't spook that bad just trotted off after looking at me for a minute. Now I'm in the market for a crossbow. There's a place here local that has the Wicked Ridge Blackhawk 360 scoped package and they have the Wicked Ridge Rampage 360 Scoped Package with the accu draw option. There's about $180 price difference between the two. Both seem to have good reviews but is the accu draw option worth the extra $180? Looking for some opinions on either before I go purchase one.
  8. Me and my buddy been on the hogs for a couple weeks and killed 10 but got a good one the other night. My buddy was on the green light and soon as it lit him up he took off a running. Busted him quartering away on the run at 100 yards, the 450 still took out his lungs an the bullet was caught under the skin behind the opposite shoulder. Probably made it 80 yards before piling up. This is on private land with an exemption to bait and use artificial lights of a night.
  9. Appreciate the response, just what I was wanting to hear. Looking forward to trying it out this season.
  10. I'm thinking of a suppressor down the road and subsonics for the pigs. Be headshot only on them; was just wondering how it did on deer with hunting ammo. Would assume like with any caliber as long as shot placement is good they would be no problems.
  11. I've had a couple of the Ruger rifles and don't like the bolts in them. Both guns I had was rough feeling and had problems with feeding and extracting ammo. One was a Go Wild Model in 6.5 Creedmoor. I've got a Savage Model 10 BSA which was a Dicks Exclusive Model with 20in Threaded Bull Barrel, Accu Trigger, Tactical Bolt and beaver tail stock. Picked it up for $200 off a buddy, best $200 I've spent. I've been using it as a hog gun so got a 3 moa red dot on top and with 150gr Winchester will about drive nails at 50 with a red dot. Every Savage I have owned has been great shooter's out the box. Also if you can find them the Remington 783 Heavy Barrel is another great gun. I picked up one in 450 a few years ago and that thing will cloverleaf them at 100 with the Hornady Black 250gr. They made them in a few calibers and would be what you're looking for but hard to find nowadays.
  12. Been eyeballing a little CVA Scout V2 Compact in 300 Blackout at a local gun store and I'm more than likely gonna pick it up the weekend. Don't need the gun but like the feel of it and the weight. Thought it would make a dandy little brush gun for some of these timber cutting spots I hunt deer and pigs; with 50 yard shots at the most. Would be running a 3 moa red dot for this setup. Anybody got experience taking deer or hogs with this round?
  13. Figured I'd take a break on the deer hunting and take a fishing trip yesterday morning. The bite was slow dragging baits but still ended up with 7 fish in the boat by 1pm. Most the fish was eater size in the 8-12lb range but did put a 60lb and a 35lb in the boat. My buddy caught the 35lb drifting a couple rods a few feet off the bottom in the front of the boat and I was dragging two rods out the back with my dragging setup. The bait used was crappie heads and skipjack. Here's a couple pics of the 60, both the 60 and 35 was released to be caught another day. Took pics of the 35 my buddy caught but turns out the sun was right in his eyes and did not make for a good facial expression. Didn't catch it till going through the pics after we turned it back. Can't beat a big fish trip after a two month dry spell of no catfishing.
  14. Yea it'll make some fine sausage, the big ones like this we have everything but the backstrap ground up into sausage. Have the backstrap made into pork chops and ran through a tenderizer.
  15. Wasn't no deer today but dad got a big ole hog on public land in Scott County.
  16. Lord blessed me with a decent 9 point this morning. I've passed two spikes, 4 point, 6 point and a small 8 this season. I hunt the North Cumberland Unit in Scott County and just couldn't let this guy walk.
  17. Filled my doe tags already for Muzzloader but no buck down on the ground yet. I've let two spikes, four point, and a six point walk. Did shoot this big yote while squirrel hunting the other day. Had to let the ole Savage .22lr eat.
  18. Took dad out on the boat Friday night, started the evening off catching a few fresh skipjack. Wound up filling a small cooler before dark. Got the rods baited up around 9:30. We fished till 12:30 before the weather turned bad. A little rain I don't mind but lightning is another story. The bite was good, lost count of how many smaller fish was caught. Dad got him a flathead which was the biggest of the night. Also went out Wednesday night on a solo trip and did good that night also. Got a decent blue that was spawned out and skinny for its length. And quit counting all the fish after the 15th one. Brought 10 of which home to put some fillets in the freezer.
  19. Thanks buddy it was a pretty good one. June is a rough month for quality fish due to the spawn but the eater size is out in full force. Took my 14 year old cousin out the trip before catching that hog and boated 25 blues 15lb and under. The bite will get better as we get into July and the fish is done spawning.
  20. Was out on Watts Bar last night caught 15 bluecats and this was the biggest of the night.
  21. I fished Watts Bar last night and caught 12 Bluecats in a few hours. Caught some drifting channel ledges and dragging in back creeks. Nothing big, biggest was 12lb. But during the spawn that's how it goes. Bluegill, Shad and Skipjack was the bait.
  22. I called my local dealers looking for a Bad Boy and they was all on order. I came home with a Cub Cadet ZT1 54in, worked out a deal and got it for $3300 out the door. If it's anything like the M48 Tank I'll be pleased.
  23. My old Cub Cadet M48 Tank is getting tired and looking to upgrade in the next few days. I've got a 4k budget and would like some opinions on mowers from you guys. I mow about 2 acres with mostly flat ground and a few trees around. Any recommendations is welcome.
  24. Yea I'm proud of him, he was a big old deer for East TN on public land.
