September 06, 2009 at 2:35am

Anyone have any experience with the new Thompson Center ICON or the new 30TC caliber bullets?

February 01, 2009 at 1:02pm

Can anyone tell me the pro's-cons of a 35 Whelen vs a 45-70 on an Encore-they are legal in MS during muzzle loader season, and was wondering which is better all around. Distance, knock down, accuracy, bullet drop, etc. Any experience is welcome.

Hit the pipeline @ 0730. Watched the blizard and the deer until the branches started cracking @ 9. This nice 8 stepped out on a hunter well deserved. Good job son. Proud Pappa, Kernge.

I'm in the planning stages of a 2009 Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, or Missouri archery deer hunt. If anyone has any good or bad experiences with outfitters or lodges that they've visited recently please share them with me. I'm looking for a 5-6 day hunt with meals and room included. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Saturday morning 10/8/05-Got a shot with my new Hoyt Vtec, a pass through on an 87lb doe @ 25yds. Shoulda waited 30 seconds more before I shot cuz a 130lb old grey doe and a hundred pounder came in and stopped @ 18 yards brodside without a clue I was up there. Didn't get greedy but it was real tough to hold back. My buddy got a 90# doe with his crossbow that evening. Both deer in an oak patch. Happy Hunting.

Switch to ALL free & clear or Purex free, it's the same detergent, free of dyes & scents & it's a great deal cheaper

Been shooting ST magnums for 3 years and luv em. After the Muzzy, Thunderhead,& mechanicals, etc were off from my field points I made the switch. Dead on every time & absolute slug holes in the deer. Good move!!!

A comment titled: 260 in response to a report titled: Rifle caliber for 9 year old

Bought my 9 yr old daughter a Browning Micro hunter in the 260 caliber 10 years ago, she still uses it and will probably never buy another. She uses Remington ballistic tip 120's. I love it for when it is really cold and I have a lot of clothes on. It is sweet to shoot at the rifle range, very mild kick.

Helps a little, the 444 is also an option.

Rain by itself isn't usually enough, A couple of days of east wind does wonders.

A comment titled: ODDS!!! in response to a report titled: Smokin on the stand

The odds of killing a mature buck (3 1/2 years old & older) go way down if you smoke. Sure there's a lot of luck in deer hunting but if you hunt the wind, in my opinion, you won't see a mature buck down wind even if you take all of the precautions in the world. I may be watching too many hunting shows & reading too many magizines but they all say leave a stand alone if your scent is blowing in the direction you usually see the deer. I quit smoking on 10/31/02. Since then I've got 1-4pt, 1-5pt, & 4-8pts

A comment titled: Northern tool in response to a report titled: ATV Sprayers

I bought one at Northern Tool called the "Boominator" broadcast sprayer. A 26 gallon sprayer with 2 nozzles. One sprays a 20' stream and the other is a 14' wide spray. It works better than I expected and it was on sale for $179. We also used some weed killer which is called Eraser and it too worked great. Just spray it and wait 3-4 weeks. This eliminated one whole work weekend with the bushhog & disc and some gas money for more big boy toys.

A comment titled: 260 for me in response to a report titled: What to get an 8 yr old

I bought my daughter a Browning micro-hunter 260. It has all you need and I love the knock down power. He will be able to hunt with it the rest of his life. It comes in 120, 125, & 140 grain bullets.

A comment titled: Northern articles!!! in response to a report titled: MAN HOW DO YOU GUYS Deal with the BUGS!!

Scout in August? I think not. Wait until the first cool front in September, scout one full day, and stay out of the woods until bow season.

A comment titled: Broadhead planeing? in response to a report titled: Broadhead accuracy

What is Broadhead planeing? Also, I just bought a Hoyt Vtec and am looking for info on a good setup. (rest, sight, release, arrows, & broadheads) My old bow shot Thunderheads 100, with a TM hunter rest, & Sightmaster sight. I had to adjust my bow to shoot my broadheads. They shot 4' to the left of center with my field tip setup consistantly. Anyone have this problem? I just got used to it.
