    With the innovation newer cartridges, is the 30-30 Winchester obsolete? This question arises from comments on a youtube video I made about stockpiling ammo. A John Rambo commented: I respectfully disagree. I have seen first hand time and time again what the 30-30 Winchester does to...

    Here in southeast Texas we have about 2 weeks until bow season starts, and about 7 weeks until rifle season starts. Over the past few weeks my wife and I have been going to the lease to spread beans and oats, and to check on the feeders. My family and I have 4 feeders and 5 stands setup. One...

    Deer season is here, instead of grabbing a pack, throwing some random gear in and heading out to the woods, lets take a look at some items that should be considered. The way I look at it, your pack needs to contain everything you need to track a wounded deer, find your way back back to the...

    I did not see anything, my son did not see anything and my dad say 3 does. After I get out of the deer stand, I decided to go to the camp and check in. A few minutes after arriving at the camp, a bug drives his 4-wheeler up with a nice sized buck that weighed in at 160 pounds.

    A few weeks ago I bought a bone collector dog house blind from the local china-mart. This past saturday 2 of my sons and I went out to the lease, did some scouting and setup the blind. We followed a creek until we found an oak tree that had a bunch of acorns on the ground and some rubs. From...
  7. M14 and M1A Talk
    My SA M1A is the standard synthetic with national match barrel. I have it set up pretty nice with an SEI scope mount and forward rails, and I have a GG&G bipod (very sturdy) and Leupold 6x18 scope. It is a good rifle but I do not know if it is accurate enough to hunt with. My shooting is limited...

    What is your opening weekend tradition? On our deer lease we will have a HUGE cookout friday evening. Someone usually has some hog traps set out, and if we are lucky we have a hog to put on the pit overnight. Even without the hog we have ribs, brisket, sausage, beans,,,,,, just your typical...

    Check out the deer camp and make sure no vandals have tore anything up during the off season. Sometimes people will go to the camp and mess with stuff. One year a couple of sets of antlers were stolen, another year a shed was broke into and a chainsaw was stolen. Scout the area where you want...

    This is a good sign, the water oak in front of my house has sprouted thousands of small acorns. But, this is an older tree, maybe close to 60 or 75 years old. I do not know how the younger trees are doing. For those of you that do not know what this means, Texas has been under a very bad...

    August, September, October, and on the first weekend of November rifle season starts in this part of Texas. When my wife and I went to the local wal-mart this past weekend they had hunting gear out on the shelves. The weekly sales paper from Gander mountain had deer stands on the front page...

    Friday evening my kids and I talked about if we wanted to go hunting Saturday morning and Saturday evening, or just Saturday evening. The agreement was made to go just Saturday evening - in part because we had a birthday party to go to at noon. Saturday morning rolls around, we sleep a little...
  14. FN-FAL Talk
    Any suggestions on a new dust cover / scope mount for my DS Arms SA58 FN/FAL? When I bought my rifle, I got just the standard SA58 with no bells or whistles. As deer season draws closer, its getting time to get a scope mounted on the rifle. There are several options out on the market, so I...
  15. Rifle Tactics, Training and Competitive Shooting
    If you use the 90 gr Vld bullet and all the tricks that the 308 guys use to make it seem like the 308 is a "1000 yd capable" load. It's not, really, you need the 300 mag or something like that, but the 223 can match the 308, by using a 26" barrel and starting the 90 gr bullet at 2800 fps. This...
  16. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Hi Folks my first time here, but I am a member of several firearms forums and an avid hunter. I hear a ton of mixed results with the majority being "the new mini 30's are just not that much more accurate than the old ones". You hear people swearing that the Mini has a wandering zero, while...
  17. Rifles Misc
    My daughter is about ready for her first deer rifle, but I'am not quite sure which direction I should go. All of my other kids have a Marlin 336 in 30-30. For here in East Texas most of our shots are no more then 100 yards, and she will not want anything with recoil. With these east Texas...

    Season drawing to an end? Have not taken a deer yet? If you play your cards right, there is no reason not to get a deer towards the end of deer season. Here in Texas regular rifle season has passed and we are now in muzzleloader and youth season. Youth season is for anyone age 16 and under to...
