    NOE strikes again

    I was sitting on my quick easy hunting seat on public land today when I saw him in the distance. I watched him come on in slowly but steadily. He started rubbing a tree then he took a few steps and started to make a scrape. That's when I dropped the hammer on him with my Rem 700 in 30.06. I aimed at his neck and the NOE 311165rf 50:50 wheel weight/pure lead put him down right there. Distance was around 35 yards. My buddy who only shoots factory rounds said it was a "cheap shot". I asked what he meant and he said how much did that lead bullet and reload cost? I said about .07 cents. He said that's why I call it a "Cheap shot".

    I generally go for lungs but I had a solid rest, the distance was real close and I felt confident taking the shot. bang flop.

    If you can hit a pop can you can hit a deer's neck. And deer are real nice about holding still for the shot if you are patient and wait for it

    Way cool!

    A buddy asked me how much cheaper it was to reload.
    I told him I wasn't exactly sure, but I thought I was in the process of going broke by saving money to find out.

    Good morning and Congratulations !!
    There is nothing cheap about finding lead, a mold, casting the perfect slug, sizing, load development and finally dropping the hammer. That is a serious hunter who gets back to the roots of the pioneer mentality..
    The eating part sure does taste far better.

    I prefer the neck shot as well. Even if you miss bone the shock severs the spinal cord. I have never tracked or lost a neck shot deer. Good work!!!

    great shot!!!!!!
    The majority of those who are loosely identified by the term 'liberals' are afraid to let themselves discover that what they advocate is statism. They want to keep all the advantages and effects of capitalism, while destroying the cause, and they want to establish statism without its necessary effects. They do not want to know or to admit that they are the champions of dictatorship and slavery.

    Nice shot. Now for the good stuff. We just had backstrap with a beer cheese sauce that was phenomenal. Girlfriend had gone to a fancy fondue place once and she said this blew it away. Found the recipe online. Good luck

    Thanks for sharing Pac. And good job on the backstrap Mr. Wolfe. I knew Mrs. Thumbcocker was a keeper when she scarfed down 2 of my deer burritos.
