I knew you would like the looks of that round once you got it . Have you had a chance to fire it yet? You could take it to Nicks Guns and shoot it on the rifle range to get a feel for it. Mine looks a lot like yours but has a 14" barrel and a new Pachy forend . :cool::cool::yeah: Sorry to say this but I dropped the ball last week and missed a doe at 50yds with my 7-30 Waters so its back to the .357 Max the killin machine.

Crossbow: stock of at least 25 inches, and having a working safety: draw weight not less than 75 lbs. The arrow tip shall have a minimum of two cutting edges which may be exposed or unexposed minimum 3/4 inch width. Expandable and mechanical broadheads are legal. Poisoned or explosive arrows are illegal.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Deer Hunter CANNOT do any of the following:

1.Hunt or take a deer with a shotgun capable of holding more than three shells. This means you may not hunt with a shotgun capable of holding more than three shells, unless it is plugged with a one-piece filler which limits the capacity of the gun to three shells. The filler must be such that it cannot be removed without disassembling the gun.


2.Hunt with any rifle other than a muzzleloading rifle .38 caliber or larger during the deer gun, the youth deer gun, the Early Muzzleloader hunts (Salt Fork Wildlife Area, Wildcat Hollow, and Shawnee State Forest), and the statewide muzzleloader seasons.


3.Hunt or take a deer with a gun or possess a loaded firearm while going to and from deer hunting during the deer gun, youth deer gun, and the statewide muzzleloader seasons, at anytime other than 1/2 hour before sunrise to sunset. NOTE: Muzzleloading firearms are considered unloaded when the cap is removed or priming powder is removed from the pan or when the battery is removed from electronic systems. See Concealed Carry information.


4.Carry a handgun while hunting deer during the early muzzleloader season (on designated areas), the statewide muzzleloader season, and archery season; have more than one firearm while hunting deer; carry a handgun being used during hunting in a concealed manner. See Concealed Carry information.

Kirk - I shot it at Creekside early this week before I posted pics. I have it shooting already pretty nice with 20.8gr 296 w/ GM205M primers.

Well back headed back from Ohio. Killed a doe with the Slug gun on Monday and shot a wide tall 135-140" 8 point with the 357 Max this morning. It hopped the back neighbors fence after 125 yard run and they wouldn't let us follow over there. They said they would look and they would call the law if we trespassed. I'm stilled ticked on my 10hr ride home. No points for us!!!!!

Man that sucks!

I just understand people like that. Why can they not be helpful and happy for a successful hunt. :huh:
