I know this is mainly a paper punching site but their are a few of us dedicated hunters on the side.
What do you hunt and what do you do it with?
I hunt everything but my main love is deer. I use a 30-06, 300WinMag, and a 270Win.
I have only drawn one elk in my life but I got one with my 30-06!
The hunting I do the most though is varmint and predator-it's addicting! I have many rifles for that-12 gauge, 204 Ruger, 17HMR, 22Mag, 20 Var Targ Turbo, 17Mach II, and I have a 6.5x47 Lapua in the mail.
Let's hear from you guys and post some pictures!

For big game I mostly chase after moose and elk. Most of that is with a compound bow. I do a little bit with my 270 win.
Since aquiring a couple of 204's, my favorite pastime is now smackin varmints, from yotes down to a target rich field full of prairie poodles.

I hunt deer, small game, turkey, prairie dogs, predators, upland birds, and went once for elk. Used my 30-06 succefully also. I really like turkey hunting. I also bow hunt and am going to try using it for turkeys next spring.

I love to punch paper and break claybirds. But sitting in a treestand on a frosty December morning watching the sun come up on all of natures glory is special.
Deer and feral hogs with a 7mm-08,.270 Win, or a Matthews legacy. Dove,quail and pheasants with a beautiful little 20 gauge and everything else with 17HMR,223,22-250,or 260.
As the old saying goes "If walks, crawls or flies,it dies."

Groundhogs !!! Love to zero in on them...I can sit for hours watching some favorite fields...They were my motivation to learn to shoot better...I started with a 22lr..then a 5MM rimfire magnum..A 22-250 shot my first one hole group & a quarter mile chuck..Now I use a Tac 20 , my best shot with that gun was 512 yds..The 6mmbr best shot 620 yds...& a 243 winchester 653yds & 2 past that one by 40 yds...I like to shoot far off & stalk in reverse..I enjoy the paper punching but it is only a means to an end..one of these days I intend to build a hunting/target pistol in 6mmbr That would be cool for the under 200 yd shots...mike in Ct who hunts in PA.

Hi. I am new to the forum, and a fairly new hunter. Groundhog number 11 (for this year) bit the dust for me on Tuesday.
I enjoy reloading and working up loads to use for various purposes. I really enjoy the forum and appreciate all of the information available!
