TSR6 if you were hunting during the "T-Zone" and passed that buck up you were smart. You can't shoot a buck during an antlerless hunt unless it's got less than 3" antlers.

I can't wait for the 9 day season. The 'ol .30-30 is calling my name! I love my 170 gr. HiShok flat nose rounds...

No, We had "either sex" tags for our area. What you can shoot varied this year depending on which management unit you're in.

Even during the dreaded "T"? Hmm...that's new. I didn't realize they allowed that.

Yeah, Apparently you could even go pick up one new tag each day from what my dad was telling me.

Either way, the 12 year old kid in our group ended up shooting a small 8 his first night out.

That's great! Hopefully he'll grow into a long time, responsible hunter.

Hopefully! His father doesn't hunt, which is why he went with his grandpa.

I had a long chat with him to let him know how special his buck was, and that normally a hunter's first buck at the VERY least comes after many days of hunting, instead of hours - and that mine took a couple years.

I didn't want him to think it was that easy!

Living in Michigan hunting is something most people do through out the fall months, like most redblooded Michiganders I participate in the various seasons. For small game hunting I have a pretty vintage .22 that my grandpa gave me, it was his when he was a kid and he is now in his late 80's. It works surprisingly well and it's always a conversation peice at the shooting range.

For deer hunting I have a a .270 and a 30.30, I perfer the .270 because it isn't as heavy and the scope on it is better then the 30.30's.

For the range I have a rather old .22 revolver that my dad bought some time ago and has passed it along to me.

I deer hunt in both Wi & IL, so being in IL, and the WI zones that I hunt I am restricted to shotgun. I have an Ithica 12g I use.

When we go up north in Wi ( rare ) I use the .270.

The .270 has a Leupold 3-9, my Ithica has a Weaver 3-9.

I've got a Marlin Model 336C cambered in .35 Remington. It's got a scope on it, but I don't remember what type. I am a far better shot with the iron sights though. I once put 2 rounds through the same hole @ 50 yards. The last series of reloads I did, I started using 210 grain rounds. They are accurate as hell, but they nearly rip my arm off.

I also have a Beretta M-9. I don't shoot it 'cause it is a collector's piece.

For squirrel and rabbit I use a Marlin .22 bolt action with a 4x scope. It's plenty for what it needs to do. Deer I use either my Marlin .30-30 that was my father's back in '65 or the Remington 12 gauge with a slug barrell and Red Dot scope. The .30-30 is accurate enough to put 5 shots in an area the size of a quarter at 100 yards. Every year we go to verify sighting accuracy at the range and the old codgers are amazed that my .30-30 is as accurate as it is. BTW I usually use the irons but have a scope on it with the see-thru mounts for closer shots, which sometimes happens.

One of my favorite rifles for close up (less than 200 yards) work is a Marlin 336C in .35 Remington. I use the factory (Remington) ammo, 200 grain bullets, with a Leupold 2x7 scope. For any normal use, it does just fine. Ive hit deer at everything between two feet and 200 yards; and they all seemed impressed with the round's performance. A nice choice in rifles; quick shouldering, easy to point. Thanks; Ernie P.
