@  rajela : (01 August 2014 - 09:18 PM) Just read all thepost about the deer eating Clines beans. He will need the 30-06, 30-30 and the 12GA to get them under control.

@  Shetland She... : (01 August 2014 - 08:51 PM) :( Need a bigger shout box! Stuff falling of the bottom in less than 12 hours! :huh: :o
@  Grateful11 : (01 August 2014 - 08:34 PM) Wow it made it to 68˚ here today in NC. I wonder if that's a record low high.
@  shortrow : (01 August 2014 - 07:45 PM) A decent quality measuring wheel is good too. You walk a lot this way.
@  Vol : (01 August 2014 - 07:30 PM) Do you have a range finder....maybe borrow one. Real handy around long flat fields about judging actual distance.
@  Vol : (01 August 2014 - 07:29 PM) Zero(sighted in) at 100 yards that is...
@  Vol : (01 August 2014 - 07:28 PM) If you zero it in with this ammuntion you should be able to hold right on out to about 150 yards....drops over 7" at 200 yards.
@  Vol : (01 August 2014 - 07:24 PM) These should work ok and would likely be readily available http://www.federalpr...ifle.aspx?id=28
@  FarmerCline : (01 August 2014 - 07:06 PM) I have actually never shot my .30-.30.....it was recently handed down to me from a relative on my mothers side of the family.....I remember being told it was sighted in for 75 yards. I will set up a target and see how it is shooting. What ammo would you suggest?
@  Vol : (01 August 2014 - 06:52 PM) You need to check your scope to see exactly how it is shooting at 50 yards, 100 yards, and 150 yards and then you should be good. Use the same exact ammunition every time as different ammunition will have somewhat different points of impact.
@  Vol : (01 August 2014 - 06:49 PM) 12 gauge with buckshot would need to be very close....40 yards to be humane....30-.06 can shoot 300-400 very accurately....but since you are not accustomed to shooting these distances I would suggest you use your 30-30 with a scope and try to stay within about 100 yards.
@  FarmerCline : (01 August 2014 - 06:33 PM) How far would a 12ga be typically good for? My grandpa has a .30-.06 I may could use but it doesn't have a scope like my .30-.30 has.
@  Vol : (01 August 2014 - 06:15 PM) .30-.30 is typically a 100 yards or closer type gun.
@  Vol : (01 August 2014 - 06:13 PM) Depends upon how close you can get....shooting from 200-300 yards a .270 is hard to beat for whitetail.....if you shooting 100-200 yards a .308 will work well....I prefer a .270 for all game....I have taken elk with a .270.....have a nice 3x9 variable scope so as you get a good clean shot on the target....if you are fairly close and have a dead rest a neck shot is a drop dead shot. Chest area is the best target for shaky hands or long distances.
@  FarmerCline : (01 August 2014 - 05:33 PM) Yep, was planning on taking out the does in hopes of cutting back on the future population.....besides the does should taste just as good. Having no experience deer hunting what would be the preferred gun? I have a .30 30 lever action or a 12ga with buckshot?
@  Vol : (01 August 2014 - 04:07 PM) Hayden, let the bucks go and take the does....that is what the real problem is....no one will take the does but everyone wants to take the bucks. Also the added benefit of taking out production.
@  FarmerCline : (01 August 2014 - 01:37 PM) Wow, and I thought I had a deer problem. No state park here but I'm just outside of town limits where everyone feeds the deer and talk about how we need more deer.....I'm about to become not well liked when the neighbors see me hauling dead deer out of the field. Out of a 10 acre field they mowed about 3 acres to the ground.
@  mlappin : (01 August 2014 - 01:28 PM) Dealt with that for years Cline, would get 40 at a time, fill em in less than two weeks and get another forty. Never got ahead of them until they started having hunts in the state park across the road. First three day hunt they had they bagged 700 deer out of 6 square miles.
