We've got until Jan 15 for bow here in Oklahoma. I'd like to hunt some more, but just can't justify killin' a deer we don't need.

2019 was a weird season - every time my truck left the driveway it came home with a pig or deer in it. Every single time. Never done anything close to that, prob never will again.

7.62x54R is a "close range" rifle........don't tell Simo
This one is, 200 yards tops for an ethical shot. My friend shooting it says he’s a 4moa shooter at 300, and he’s not willing to shoot a critter with that little margin of error.

25 deer, One yodel dog,and 170+ turkeys so far this morning. 49DB9D4E-48B5-4FC1-9E2F-0D039D306D92.jpeg

Just pullin' your leg, Laufen. I get it.

FWIW, that 54R whacks deer real nice with a 180gr Sierra. I had to field test my M39 one year, it worked.
