So, tell me Joe. If you were to do it over, would you do anything differently? Change lube? Wait for the 'right' condition? Put out wind flags? Look for a real trophy dog? Track him if the first shot only wounded? Use a different barbeque sauce for the cookout?
Oh, I meant to say that I have only hunted with a single shot one time myself. Mostly use model 70 and model 77. Good guns.

Here is a picture across from our camp in Slater Creek Colorado showing but a few of the elk herd that hung out there daily. It took three individual frames to capture the entire herd. All though I was hunting with a Ruger #1B I in 6MM Remington I was also only hunting for a real nice mule deer buck. The herd was always there for about the last three years I hunted there but it would also have been like shooting a typical range cow just out feeding in the pasture. So I never bothered to buy an over the counter Cow tag at the time. It just wasn't fair chase hunting to me plus we we're typically gifted a cow from a large family in our group who always killed more animals combined legally than they could actually eat of both elk and deer. The 30 Super H&H flanged was made me think of posting this picture.

I never even ate squirrel- too much like a rat itself (or like a 'chuck). Shot some p-dogs in Montana, but not as exiting a hunt as yours. Laying on a nice blanket, cold drink at hand and sandwiches in the truck.
Neck got sore shooting prone. Turned and shot in a few positions like they shot at Creedmore.  My friend thought I was "quaint".

I ate a lot of frog legs myself. Only injury I ever saw my dad get came one night while he was out for frogs. No, he didn't poke himself with the frog gig- he fell off a wet log and broke his arm. He was one helluva bird hunter, too.
Rabbit is fine, but no squirrel.

Have had snapping turtle that tasted a lot like frog legs.
A friend brough some meat over from a turtle that he had caught that same morning, and I put it in the frig. The next day when I was breading it to cook up, one chunk rolled completely over in the palm of my hand. The fryer put a stop to that.

Thank-you gentlemen.
Turned into a bit of a off shoot.
But thanks.
I think I値l shoot breachseated if I feel like it.
First shot anyway if the situation and conditions meat up.
For me it is easier to get better bullet fit and alignment.
I prefer not to work my brass if possible in a couple of guns anyway.
My little 双l 310 cadet I have no dies for but I have worked around slightly sizing the necks to thumb seat the heeled bullet for consistent alignment.
One day I値l enlarge the heel to a proper fit in the case necks ......but it shoots so good breachseated that I知 reluctant to change anything.

As for my high velocity small caliber wonder gun (30-30) Wink
A PP弾d 150-180 grn wizzing along is pretty flat to 150 yards.

A breachseated 120 ,150, 165,170,180 grn grease grooved lubed bullet is pretty good for most anything up to a reasonable stalking distance  on unknowing creatures moving along at a more modest speed.

I mostly shoot paper just for the hell of it these days.
And to keep my eye in.
I am amazed at what can be done with cast bullets at distance.
But I値l keep the 300 m shots and shooting Rouge soft drink cans as far possible trick shooting to the range where a muffed shot means nothing.

When I grow up I wanna real nice barrell in 30-20 maybe and shoot bug holes at 200yrds.
And all with a 5lb rook and rabbit rifle.
And a cheap 22lr that shoots better than Eley 10x in a brechrest gun with dirt cheap ammo.

Then I wake up Cry

I seem to have more fun with a bs 120 grn in the 310 cadet over 1.3 grn s to 2.3 grns of bullseye at the moment.
Sort of cci quiet load for skin flints.
It sure packs some wallop for what it is.
If I知 feel like hanging the  expense then 2.8grns will really tear up the country side.

I have tried the same bullet sized down in a 30-30 and yes you can see them flying to the target through a scope.

Some of us are just sad.

I get a loud bullfrog serenade nightly.
You guys are welcome to all you wish.
Some local restaurants serve em, along with gator and smoked mullet.
Don't like the mullet.

No powder trees in Idaho?
Worth it for all those good minerals.

I won't eat no giant lizard. Never seen a mullet that wasn't some clown's hairdo. Try the frog legs- get enough and the serenade will quiet down.

In Connecticut, we use mullet for bait and eat shrimp.
Here in Florida, it's just the opposite.
Weird.

I like a little cocktail sauce on my frog legs.

Cliff Henderson shot a Mule Deer, a Whitetail Deer and a Black Bear with his 205 grain Paul Jones Spitzer in his 14:1 gain twist RKS barrel on a .32 RKS 1885 Winchester High Wall.
