    Default Deer Rifle

    I had made a range card for this years deer rifle, and I thought I'd shoot a group. Yes, this is an unrealistic range for this rifle to hunt at, I'm just practicing my doping ability... and general marksmanship.



    I took the shots on different days to raise the difficulty, needing to dope the differing conditions each shot. I don't get 3 shots on a deer, so I have to get the first shot correct. One shot, one kill.

    150 yards will be the furthest I take a shot, my hunting load isn't quite this precise.

    In the description of the video, there are links to the other shots' videos.

    With the "vital area" of most deer being the size of a small water-melon (say, 14") I think your Marlin and yourself are readily up to the task.

    That is pretty impressive shooting with an 1894!

    You could have hit one through a lung and the liver this morning and you'd still be looking for it, but it would be a hit in the "watermelon size" vitals.

    Looks like you and that ole Marlin are ready to get some prime venison.

    I'm not here to argue the size of a deer kill zone, take it up with someone else.

    ...and, in the post i said, "Yes, this is an unrealistic range for this rifle to hunt at, I'm just practicing my doping ability... and general marksmanship."

    Have a great day!

    I still have to practice on my moving target, something I haven't done with the rifle yet; but stationary deer, watch out!
    Thanks!
