Practice pays off

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Have not used a rifle since 2009.  Decided that practice is key, so I started practicing for the shot, only a few shots at a time.  Mostly sitting once I got sighted in, and never more than ten shots at a time.  Usually, two to four, doing the thoughtful practice as they call it in archery. Became comfortable out to 130 yards, in the sitting position, with open sighted 30-06.  Took this deer first day out, 132 yards, sitting. Light was perfect for open sights. He is kinda  big in the body, with a smaller rack.  Nice to carry a fine rifle in the mountains. Wanted to shoot one of the bigger ones that live up there, but work is work, and incoming gusty wind was the weather.  Overall, a great rifle hunt.  Practice paid off.

What kind of gun is that?  Where are your 20 power binos and backpack full of stuff.  What brand of camo?  Ahh the good old days.  Nice! 😊
