PostSubject: I love hunting.. BUT....   October 4th 2017, 4:18 pm

I am completely exhausted after 3 hunts!  I have another hunt at the end of the month with my nephew and our friend for deer. They want to use our Mosin Nagants, so that will be a cool hunt with those old rifles. My nephew will borrow my brothers m9130 and our friend will use my m44. Im looking at putting a more hunting style scope on it as 24x is way to big for normal hunting. I've found a leupold 3-9x40 ultimateslam that I am looking into.

We'll do some reloading of our own and get them all dialed in before the 28th of october.

I don't know how much more I can take!

Need us to send you some muscle rub and aspirin?  Wink

Sounds to me like you are having a great time. I'm looking forward to 
a more detailed and picture filled recounting of your adventures. But, I doubt 
you will generate much sympathy with your fatigue. I imagine many of us are jealous! 
I know I am. alienalienalien

There was a small group of a dozen of us that got into the Teddy Roosevelt style of hunting only difference was the caliber not the .405 Win. he used. Browning came out with their version of the Winchester Model 1895 in .30-06, (several years before Winchester). I have an FFL so we all agree and contact a supplier and order a dozen rifles. Once in hand we didn't like the high gloss poly finish (talk about a bugger to remove that poly WOW). A hand rubbed boiled linseed was applied over a month period while the actions had been sent to a local gunsmith for Williams tang peep sights installed (just like Teddy's). The complete rifles went back to the smith and correct period checkering was added to each gun.

We had the guns then ordered the high top laced boots, breeches, Woolrich coats and period head ware and shirts. One of our members found the correct eye glass frames so we got sun glasses. Everything we could think of was purchased, man we looked like we belonged to the Roosevelt hunting group that stayed in Estes Park Colorado in the day. A local reporter even took pictures of us and did a small article about us reliving the past era.

I just got back from hunting. I went to a place where the hurricane knocked down numerous trees and flooded the way in. Luckily, I wore hip boots and didn't get wet but stumbling over all the trees and limbs submerged in the water was exhausting. I hunted 2 different stands for 2-3 hours each.

I don't feel a bit sorry for you Jon. If it's so bad, don't hunt anymore. Tease

LOL, its not the hunting itself guys, just all the other stuff that goes along with the upkeep of hunting/camping. Cooking, cleaning, refilling water tanks, fuel, etc. It just wears you down over time. I want to get a damn teepee one of these days or even a bakers tent to keep things simple. Camp near a damn stream where water is always running to wash dishes, etc.

It could have been worse, you could be using horses. What a pain in the ass that is. Plus all the stuff you mentioned, there is packing extra grain and maybe hay, hobbling them at night, searching for them the next morning, not to mention them shying from every place a bear has been and tossing you on your ass.  No
