  1. i still havent had time to call any of the ranges so i was wondering if anyone has. I just bought a new 270 WSM and its only bore sighted. Is that accurate enough to hit a deer if i cant get out to a shooting range? one more question for you guys how much more kick does the 270 WSM than the regular 270? ------------------ Big D
  2. I went out shooting with my uncle last weekend and i really like one of his guns and i wanted to go buy one but i dont know if it would be worth it for deer hunting this year because i cant sight it in. So i was wondering if there were any shooting ranges still open for rifles. ------------------ Big D
  3. pheasant field reports

    I gotta question. I know it doesnt relly fit into this topic but it kinda does. How old do you have to be before you can buy a hunting license without taking the firearm stafety class? I have a friend who would like to go out hunting for some pheasant but he hasnt taken gun safety yet. I wanna know if he can buy a license or if he has to wait until the next gun safety course comes around. Thanks ------------------ Big D

  5. Strikemaster vs. Jiffy

    Well I have decided to hold another year on making a permanent ice house so i can afford one of those Road King trailers. So I have decided to buy a new auger which is the better buy? I know the Strikemaster is faster but i heard it ices up easy. I need help! Even though i wont buy one for another month or two. ------------------ Big D
  6. I usually fish in about 15-18 feet of water for pike at one of the city lakes and I was wondering when the pike would be moving in. I have been to this lake earlier this year and havent even got one bite yet. I know the action really heats up there in early July but I was wondering if the action wil be good before that. ------------------ Big D
  7. T-8 hrs

    I dont know where you live but right now it is pouring outside in the cities. So the weather isnt looking very good. ------------------ Big D
  8. Browning WSM

    well I was thinking about buying a browning and I saw the WSMs. They travel more fps they dont drop as far as the standard round and they dont have that much more recoil. I will mostly hunt deer but you never know what might come up were I need more power. ------------------ Big D
  9. Browning WSM

    I was thinking more about the 270 and 7mm WSMs. They are a little less powerfull than the 300. ------------------ Big D
  10. I was wondering if you guys think that these are to big for deer hunting? And those of you who have them or have shot them would you suggest them. ------------------ Big D
  11. how do i start catching bowfin's??

    I have never intentionaly tried to catch bowfins so I dont know exactly how to catch them and where they are. I have caught many but it was by accident when I was fishing for walleyes and sunfish and stuff like that. You could probably catch them on lures they are a predator fish. They also are always surfacing on top of the water so some top water lures might do the trick. Thats about all that I know. ------------------ Big D
  12. Dont listen to him he is just being a loser. No he wasnt number 3 and I dont know why he was trying to start something at the game. ------------------ Big D
  13. where to i get lead bars?

    I know that Stamina Inc sells them for a cheap price. ------------------ Big D
  14. Lunker??

    I wouldnt be afraid about going down there fishing I am down there all of the time and I have never been approached by anyone down there. The only reason that it was posted to bring a knife when you go down there is for your guys saftey. I just try to stay away from anyone who looks wierd walking around up there. If your afraid to go down there alone then go with someone else. If you post when you are going to go down there me or Lunker have been down there the last few weekends. If teenagers will go down there alone then you guys should be able to. Bobb-o what do you catch the northerns and smallies off of? The person who showed me the spot said that it isnt good during the summer. How far into summer do it usually start down there? I might try down there this weekend if I have time after my baseball game and before work. ------------------ Big D
  15. Lunker??

    Yeah that was me down there. We didnt catch a thing after you left. We would have stayed down there later but we had to get out of there to go to the Twins game. I might try down there again but I am not sure yet. ------------------ Big D
