Quote from: Hunterbug;149318The girls and I had an amazing opening morning. We went to RJ's place as usual. Both of the girls wanted mature bucks. It was decided that Hunter got the first chance. We got to RJ's and we were working on breakfast when I looked out and spotted a few does and a small buck. Then bringing up the rear was a nice buck. I told Hunter to grab her gun and we headed out. I hadn't grabbed any binoculars so I couldn't judge him, I could just tell that he was decent. She fired and he dropped then got back up and started limping down hill. She fired again and he was down. We all headed up for pictures and to get to work. RJ went back to the house to get some stuff and I sent Payton back to eat. Then I ran back down to the house and RJ met me at the door. He had seen a buck that was at least as big as Hunter's. I told Pea to grab her gun and I grabbed mine and we headed out with RJ. Up the hill was another nice buck and several smaller ones. Payton got a steady rest anqd when she was ready she fired and he dropped. I picked out a fork buck and shot and he dropped. So we headed up to them. Payton's was right where he stood. Mine had gone a short ways but was dead. Now we really had our work cut out. I went back and helped Hunter finish dressing hers. Payton came over and the girls drug him down to the barn. Then we went and dressed ours and drug them down and around to the barn. After that, we finally got to eat. After breakfast we skinned them and got them hung up. I can't thank RJ enough for his hospitality and helping us make these memories.

Quote from: Hunterbug;149337It's good bourbon, real smooth. I won't tell you how many bottles I've drank lest you think I'm a lush. If Eric can't find it, I'll see about getting some to you.
Quote from: Hunterbug;149338Hunter used her Western Field 30-06 which is a commercial Mauser, loaded with a 165gr Sierra Gameking and 55gr of IMR-4350. I used my Pre '64 Model 70 30-06 with the same load. Payton shot her custom 270 that I have posted about here loaded with Federal factory 130gr.
