Turkey Hunting / Finally tagged out in MI!!
« Last post by MI_Bowhunter on May 19, 2019, 01:02:40 PM »
Finally tagged out in MI!!!

22#, 8.5" beard and 1" spurs

Got up at 0330 on Sat and got set up before light. Set out a strutting tom decoy and a hen.    Heard lots of gobbling early then it all just went silent once they got on the ground.

Finally I saw movement to my left and four hens came running in.   The ran right in and milled around the decoys for a long time.

After a time I caught movement on my right.  Two hens came running out of the woods and made a big circle in the field then ran out of sight.    The turkeys in the decoys didn't seem to affected by this and continued eating and milling around.

They finally started to move off to my right and started making a lot of noise.  I leaned a bit to see around the window of my blind   and there was a tom there strutting like he owned the place.

I watched him for a while and he never came out of strut.  Finally I got him broadside and leveled him.  Only ended up with one pellet through the breast. despite having his head tucked in tight

After the shot  all the birds hung around and just kept feeding and milling around.  Seemed like it took them forever to move on.  I didn't want to flush them as my buddy is still hunting the area. 

It seems like it too a long time to play out but shooting hours began at 0537 and I was done by 0650.

I was still drinking my hot cup of coffee on the way out.

My buddy was hunting another part of the farm so on the way out a looped back to him and helped him call a bit.   We did see a nice fat tom waaaaay across the field but he was not about to leave the 4 hens he was with. I told him to hunt my spot that evening, which he did with his brother who shot a bird later the same day from my spot using my decoys in the same configuration....It's a hot spot!!!

This is a first for me, tagged out in two states.   I could not have asked for a much better season.  Its been just an awesome season.

Deer Hunting / Fawn Leg
« Last post by Flintlock1776 on May 19, 2019, 12:14:28 PM »
I was in my backyard this morning and right next to the shed I found the two lower sections of a fawn leg. No other parts around. It was pretty fresh too. Unfortunately I took in my trail cameras a while back so not sure what nailed the fawn or where the rest of it may be.

Not familiar with it nor do I hunt out west.

I dug this up:

 The 6.5 PRC (Precision Rifle Cartridge) is a relatively new long-range cartridge developed by Hornady. According to their team, the round has been “designed to achieve the highest levels of accuracy, flat trajectory and extended range performance in a sensibly designed compact package”. The use of moderate powder charges helps create a cartridge that is accurate and enjoys a reasonable barrel life without heavy recoil. Often represented as an attempt to improve on the wildly popular 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC is a well-balanced chambering suitable for both hunters and competition shooters.
Those who choose to shoulder a rifle chambered in 6.5 PRC should enjoy the high velocities and long-range potential possible with the short-action round. Hornady claims a muzzle velocity of 2,910 FPS from their 26” test barrel with a 1:8 twist and “performance well beyond 1000 yards”. Ammunition is currently offered in 147-grain ELD Match and 143-grain ELD-X bullets.
Although primarily designed for competition, hunters will find the round suitable for most North American game.


I wonder if the army using something similar for terrorists  season ( which never closes)
Flint - our boys and girls in the military are using all sorts of stuff for terrorists, ranging from the 5.56 all the way to the .50 BMG for the shoulder-fired weapons.  The long range guys still seem to be relying on the .338 Lapua, .300 Win mag, .50 BMG (Barretts) and the good old .308 (7.62X51) to some extent.  I wouldn't be shocked to learn there are a few 6.5 CM and PRC weapons in use over there, but unless the military has adopted some official guns & ammo, it makes for a very challenging supply chain situation - don't want to run out of ammo over there.  If Dutch happens to be monitoring this thread I'm sure he could lend a much more credible response to your question.

As long as the bullet that gets ‘em is marked “Made in the USA” whatever we use to reduce that herd is good with me! ##$%#115 -0078

Decided on Putting a Leupold VX-5 3-15X x 44mm, 30mm tube, on the Christensen Arms 6.5 PRC....Should be here next Thursday...Saved over $100 by getting it off Amazon instead of Midway.....my first choice was Midway but for over $100...decided on Amazon...the sales tax was the issue......

Enjoy it.

Next time try scopes here (I did)

I just get a kick out of buying hunting stuff from a store not too far from the New York City Mayor’s office @--0--0118

Madgomer ....Yes, only two so far this year but that will likely go to 3 or 4 this year....Got to get me a Bergara B14 (~$950) in 6.5 Creedmoor, a Blaser R93 Stock (~$2000) for starters. Am looking at 6mm Rem, maybe vintage? and always on the look out for a Ruger No.1V in 280 Rem, it is a varmint/heavy barrel configuration....they only made it for a couple of years...
