For this past 4 days we have (only) been in the high 80's- low 90's with early mornings actually pleasant. High 60's-Low 70's has proved to be an immense delight after 2 months of "feel-like" 100-111 degrees.
Point being: I'm startin' to get that "huntin' thinkin" goin' on! I have a gun & knife show near the woods on the weekend of October 21-22 and that is aggravating my condition as well! So I was wondering:
...........How's about you'ze guys! My necks staring to swell and I'm ready to make some scrapes in the backyard!
I though we could all "hunt-vent" a little. What do ya' think? I will show photos of a brand-new "old" RMK which I am going to proceed to "blood-break"in this season!
HINT: It was made...on a very "VERY" limited number back in the late 80's...but long-since stopped!
More-to-come,
Stay Sharp,
Capt. Chris

I was fortunate to draw an Idaho late, November 24-December 10, cow elk permit. At 79, it's probably my last elk hunt. Also, while years ago before the infestation of wolves and increase in mountain lions, this cow elk tag would have been a gimme, like off my deck. But we haven't seen a single elk since early spring, so we shall see. Wish me luck.

Pappy, I really liked the pictures you posted in the past. It would have been easy to fill your tag then! Good luck. Hopefully you score and draw a rag for next year. Too young to quit right now!

Pap,
Come on,you're just a kid. I know of a woman up by my cabin in Maine that hunted deer right up to age 94. She used to pedal her bicycle with her Winchester Model 94 in the side scabbard (The 94 was chamber for 32 WCF (32 Win Spl) octoganal bbl....take down)

She would set up her ground blind,harvest her deer field dress it and pedal back into town. I asked her,Jeanette, how do you get that big deer back in town? Her answer was That is why God created great grandsons!!!

So you see,Pap, you have plenty of hunts left in you!!!!

Cap is in the Rut!

Bow hunting next month. Sea Ducks in Maine in November. Rifle in November. Muzzle Loader in December. 25-5 trapper has been around the world in many hunts and as long as I am able to hunt will always be on my side.

Shoot straight and Happy Hunting!

Still my old favorite is one of my first Randall Knives,an old style Model 8 but I also use a Model 21 as I really don't need any big knives.

RamKing,
That is a mighty fine looking Model 21. Looks like it has a bit of character,

I have a special memories for my Old Style Model 8. I used it to field dress the first pheasant my dog,Luvvy,flushed as pup.

That Model 8 was the 2nd Randall knive I had purchased and the wait was just about 3 months so you know that goes back a long ways.

Not to get "too" hung up on just the RMK....What caliber and game are y'all using and hunting? I'm going for Bama whitetail, hogs and (perhaps) a pheasant shoot thrown in to boot!
Shotgun with be a Beretta #301, 12 gauge...or a Browning Citori in 20. Both of these guys have been real good to me, including top dog at last year's shoot. I highly recommend them.
Rifles? I have more than I need but I recently had Jimmy McCullough build me a 257 Roberts, which I'll get "broke-in" this upcoming season. It will be a great rifle and it will be available for guests, women and younger hunters. It's mild report and recoil has to be experienced and can't be properly described. When I hunted in Florida a 1937 (Pre War) Winchester Model #70, in Roberts, was my go-to...all the time!
For more serious work I own "4"....(That's right: 4) 30-06 caliber hunting rifles...3 bolt guns and a Belgium, Grade II Browning BAR. Great medicine for whatever you're hunting.
I also acquired an old Sako "Vixen" sporter in triple deuce which I'll sight in and doe hunt with a bit. Absolute pristine condition and I've never had a 222 Remington that wouldn't group seriously tight ones!
OK: What about you folks? Let me hear it!
Stay Sharp, Capt. Chris
PS: A 150+ point Bama whitetail with my "Hill Country" in '06...CCS

The .257 Roberts would definitely be my choice for up to 200 yards, any shots taken over that, then I pick the Sako 30-06 150gr Nosler Partition or Remington Core-Loc.

One of my biggest regrets was getting rid of my Browning BLR in 358 Winchester. I just couldn't cozy-up to the larger "groups" it shot, compared to other rifles I own...but in 308 that's a great rig!
Thanks, Capt. Chris

Caliber and game?

Pheasant and occasionally chukar I use both 20 & 12 gauge based on the terrain. 24" barreled 20 in the thicker stuff otherwise it's the 12, both Benelli semi auto.

Coyote and other vermin it's mostly 17 Rem, occasionally the AR in 223 when the need arises.

Whitetail it's either the 7mm08 model 7, 6.8 SPC (not too impressed with that one), or the 300 RUM Sendero. Overkill for sure up here in WI, but with many shots either side of 300 yards none of em ever took another step using the 300.

Not anything nearly as nice as some of your chosen weapons, but they get the job done.

RMK wise, my model 25 is my hunting season carry. Unless I have a different custom on my belt, but that's a subject for another subforum.

Cool thread Capt, thanks for starting it

Capt,
Now a days,nothing fancy for me. It is just squirrels and rabbits so my basic piece is an old Savage Model 24 22lr/410 O/U or a Benjamin Discovery PCP 22 air rifle.

Back,just a couple of years ago,for quail down in South Georgia it was the Darne SXS 12 ga.

However,I do have a possible plan to come down to your neck of the woods for an Iguana hunt with the air rifle and combine that with some snakehead fishing.

Recently, I had a friend help me trouble shoot a Semi 1919a4 I bought back from a sale I made 12 years ago.
After spending 4 hours with me and providing some replacement parts, I asked if I could pay him.
He said no, but anticipating this response, I brought 200 rounds of 308 already linked for his full auto Browning.
He agreed he could always use ammunition.
He was heading to a relatives place in Texas where the hogs have ruined a lot of his land.
They were setting up the full auto and thought they might be eliminating some real pests.
His set-up is a lot like the one I had back in my full auto belt fed days.

Sadly, it doesn't look as though I'm going to get as much hunting in this year as I had wished. Dr's visit yesterday predicates:
* Port side knee replacement
* Left shoulder physical therapy (at the least)
Both of the above probably ain't gonna' have me real spiffy for most of hunting season. I'm not happy about it either...
Best, Capt. Chris

Wear a knee bracelet until hunting is over, then get it replaced. Get a steroid shot in your shoulder, they work.

Capt,
One teaspoon of unflavored Knox gelatin each morning will take care of the knee problem.

Some exercises for the shoulder and you are good to go.

By late spring maybe I will come down your way to do a cast & blast.

That is go fishing for snakehead fish and Iguana hunting.

Wayne--

Iguana hunting?

What is the typical range, and how far do you have to lead in order to connect?

Wayne,
My knee has needed replacing for over 3 decades and it's finally to the point that it cannot be ignored. High school football injury started it. Dirt bike pile up, running hair scrambles screwed it. Partial frag grenade ingredients in it as well.
I am now "out 23 1/2 degrees" and it has been bone-on-bone for longer than I can remember. Believe me: It needs replacin'.
Thanks, Capt. Chris

I went through a replacement for another reason.

Another doctor asked me if I can walk on it, and what I thought.

I told him to keep his natural knees as long as possible.

Don't think I will be hiking the Canyon again.

Of course, the ortho doctors tell patients who have trouble and who are reluctant to get surgery that they will know when they are ready.

Sounds like the Captain is ready.

Capt
I was bone on bone for years. Hiking in Nepal, Asia and South America, were a pain in the a.. err, knee.
I had my knee replaced in 2019 and it is the best thing that I have had done, as far as helping stay fit. Cycling, knee wise, is a breeze and zero problems walking.
Just do every darn exercise the PT says, no matter how you feel. I was back cycling in a month after the operation.

Capt,
Wow! I guess you do need a replacement. Gosh!! You are almost as banged up as me!!!!

Well,do what you think is best. Maybe the sooner the better.

By the sway,any iguanas and snakehead fish in your area?
I may plan a train trip down your way in the spring.

Train trip? I won't fly as TSA and I really do not play well together.

Grandson Hayden Elmore, on my daughter's side, harvested this monster 6x8 bull elk, and 2xdays later got this nice mule deer. He used his Model 3-5" Stag SS on both. He's 20 years old and is quite the hunter.

Pappy,
Wow! Nice harvest!!

James,
'Iguanas are pretty much stationary so no need to lead them for the shot.

Rifle of choice is usually a PCP air rifle about 22+ caliber supressed. These hunts are pretty much in populated areas.

As far as I know,no hunting license is needed down in FL for Iguanas but I think the proper proceedure is to call the loacal PD to let them know what area you will be in.

I am finally mostly healed up now and will be able to go into the woods next week on a weekly squirrel/coyote safari.

Squirrels season opened Sept. 1st (coyotes are all year round) so I missed a couple of months of the season.

Glad to hear you are healed up and ready to go into the forest again for even more rehab. Nothing like a walk in the woods to get a boost. This time of year no worries about ticks or skeeter either.

Pap,
No skeeters for sure but ticks are year round. I had Lyme Disease a couple of times (keep going back for more).

I have two state forests near by that I hunt in,one,11 miles away is 11.000 acres and the other is behind the outdoor range just 5 miles from me and that is 349 acres.

That one is the best kept secret in the state. I have hunted that for over 50 years and have seen about 6 other hunters.

A few years ago,a bow hunter harvested a 305 lb white tailed buck there. Haul that out of the woods and it is uphill both ways!!!
