re: Brand of Choice for .308 Ammo - ducksnbass
Went back to corelokts about 3 years ago after trying several others. Federal, Winchester, etc. Every deer I've shot with the corelokts has dropped right where it stood. If it ain't broke, don't fix it....

re: Picked up another 6.5 today - ducksnbass
[quote]Savage Axis II Predator[/quote] Savage is calling theirs the "Predator" too? That's the 3rd company to do that. Ruger, Mossberg, and now Savage? Seems like their marketing people could come up with a different name. Either way, it looks like a nice gun. Looking forward to your...

Browning X-bolt - tell me about it. - ducksnbass
Anyone have one and how do you like it? Thinking about buying myself a new rifle for Christmas. I've got a Mossberg Patriot with a synthetic stock that shoots lights out but I kinda want something more traditional (wood and blue) Prefer it to be in 308. Yes, I know the official rifle of the OB i...

re: Savage XP rifle combo $139 - ducksnbass
The XP Hardwoods w/ Weaver scope is showing 249.99 with rebate. If Academy will price match plus 5% that's a pretty good deal too. [link=(http://www.cabelas.com/product/shooting/firearms/centerfire-rifles/bolt-action-centerfire-rifles/pc/104792580/c/553829580/sc/105522480/i/105523380/savage-ar...

re: Cutting slotted angle iron - ducksnbass
[quote]Was what I was looking for; have you used one (and can recommend a particular blade)?[/quote] I have used one multiple times. If you have a lot of cutting to do, you may want to buy 2 or 3. [link=(https://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-7-in-x-1-8-in-Metal-Abrasive-Saw-Blade-Bulk-DW3511/202...

re: Is a .308 too big of a round for a 10 yr old? - ducksnbass
My son has had a compact 308 of his own since he was 10. Started him out on reduced recoil loads, but he has always been a pretty big kid. He's 13 now 5'9" and 180lbs. Still shoots the same gun but with regular ammo. I've tried to get him to move up to a full size gun or at least re-stock his. ...

re: Cheapest "Beater" Shotgun - ducksnbass
OP said he wanted it to be able to shoot 3.5's. Therefore, I agree that the 835 is what he wants. However, if he does want the ability to shoot slugs, which he asked about later in the thread, then he'd need a dedicated slug barrel for the 835 or a gun that is not overbored. Also, take a look...

Spin off of First Kills Thread - first Purchased Gun? - ducksnbass
What was the first gun you purchased yourself? Mine was a 1963 Browning Auto-5 in 16ga with a Polychoke. I was 16 and wanted a shotgun like my dad's. Saved my yard mowing money and bought it at a Pawnshop for $275. Sold it many years later to buy a new 870 Supermag because I thought I needed to ...

Nice pics and great stories. Too bad you didn't get a shot on one. The wife and I just got back from an anniversary trip up there on Wednesday. Two guys were checking their bows and gear at the airport in Denver and I asked if they got anything. They said no. Airline checker told me of all the ...

re: 30-30 Deer Hunters - ducksnbass
I admit my #1 thick woods gun is my 1895 in 45-70, but I do carry the 30-30 from time to time. 150 grain core-lokts have worked well in it. Never killed a deer with it but it has dropped several pigs....

re: Time to chase bushy tails! Oklahoma limit from this morning - bump for 2nd limit in OP - ducksnbass
Nice job Coco. I've always loved squirrel hunting but always hated cleaning them. I had an old guy show me how he cleaned them a couple of years ago. So much easier which makes me enjoy hunting them again. Oh, and I can highly recommend a Henry 22. Mine is a tack driver and makes a great sq...
