I don’t gun hunt much anymore , but I do get a rifle out every year when my 11 year old wants to go. This year I decided to put a new scope on my granddady’s Old Ruger M77 243. He used to make fun of us for our 30-06 and our 308 calibers. He said if we knew how to shoot we wouldn’t need such big guns. So I decided to honor him about 7 years after he died and put his old deer rifle back into action. It’s two for two so far. Last week in Ky I shot an old strange looking 8 pointer (part donkey?), and yesterday I had a nice 8 step onto the field at 300 yards In Indiana. I shot him and I think granddaddy would be happy I learned to make accurate longer shots and used his rifle that used to ride along on his tractor and four wheeler. I don’t know how many deer he killed with it over the years (probably a bunch), but I can add two to the list.
