Re: Hornady 190 Sub-Finally

I’ve had good luck with Nosler’s subsonic 220 he ballistic tip from an accuracy standpoint.

I can’t justify shooting a game animal with a subsonic to myself, so no experience with terminal performance.

Re: What firearm are you using for deer opener?

In MN, .300 blk AR pistol. Stupid shotgun zone. I like the 110 gr TSX bullets at about 2500.

In MT, .30-06 (1903 Springfield sporterized rifle) made by a friend who isn't doing that great heath wise. Want to shoot something with it while I can still share the photos with him.

Re: 2019 Youth Firearms Deer Season - Oct. 17-20

The question is not on recruiting newcomers, often kids, from hunting families; it is recruitment of individuals of all ages who have no hunting history in their families or immediate circle of friends. These people have no one to borrow or be gifted equipment so have to buy everything from scratch...

Re: 2019 Youth Firearms Deer Season - Oct. 17-20

Note that an adult wasn’t required to hunt with a kid over 13. So 13-17 got an extra 4 day season.

Same thing for waterfowl youth day. IIRC if you are over 13 with a firearms safety certificate you could on your own. If you were 16+ you had to have a federal duck stamp.

Re: Texas officer who fatally shot woman in her home arrested...

While not as overwhelmingly as in the past, I read somewhere that most LEO’s never draw their weapon in the line of duty during their career. To hear many folks talk, all cops are under fire day in and day out. If the cops believe that, it explains their high level of jumpiness and why we are seeing...

Re: 2019 Youth Firearms Deer Season - Oct. 17-20

Not trying to get personal here. Whenever someone starts going on about how much they do, there is always someone else who has done more who doesn’t talk about it. So... Without trying to play oneupmanship, my contention is: We do need to keep adding folks to the sport. How they are recruited is the...

Re: 2019 Youth Firearms Deer Season - Oct. 17-20

Then WHAT is the point of the youth season, as opposed to some other way (like reduced rate licenses for folks accompanied by a kid). All the youth season does is get folks who would probably be out there anyhow during the regular season out early. With waterfowl, anyhow. The amount of $$$ in equipm...

Re: 2019 Youth Firearms Deer Season - Oct. 17-20

Truthfully, your point is every bit as anecdotal as mine. I don’t deny that we need kids hunting, and no problem with high school shooting teams. But giving the kids a first crack at the game means the rest get a lesser experience and if you want to increase hunting, I think we would be better off m...

Re: 2019 Youth Firearms Deer Season - Oct. 17-20

Kind of my point. Few folks have access other than public land. I agree with the not fair to the folks who hunt the regular season crowd. Look at it this way- which is personal experience. You get a 14 y/o kid who has not hunted. Take him out there to a good spot on youth waterfowl day. He shoots ha...

Re: 2019 Youth Firearms Deer Season - Oct. 17-20

There may be fewer folks hunting, but those that do are out every week. The DNR has some results from the duck hunting license survey. The number of days afield on average was quite high, I was shocked by it. If the average guy who buys a license is spending 10 days afield, what does that tell you? ...

Re: ANTIFA Plan Protest Outside of Minneapolis Trump Tally

If I thought proving Antifa was a terrorist org by getting attacked by them would accomplish something, that is one thing. Getting assaulted for no good reason is another. Antifa’s behavior is out there for those who choose to look. The mainstream media is carrying the water for them, and claims the...

Re: ANTIFA Plan Protest Outside of Minneapolis Trump Tally

Good reason for me to stay away from the metro.

All I would do is get the crap beat out of me by an Antifa thug.

Re: Take Trump literally and seriously in Minnesota

There really should be a strong federal investigation of the last several elections in the metro. How boxes of disproportionately democrat ballots are miraculously found to flip races in Hennipen county is believable once a decade... not every national election. I remember an event that happened whe...

Re: 2019 Youth Firearms Deer Season - Oct. 17-20

What I suspect is the case is that these “youth seasons” really don’t make a difference with recruitment of hunters. I suppose one could find a few examples of youth that otherwise would never have hunted take it up due to the exposure, but it’s been my experience that the vast majority of the kids ...

Re: OGC Picnic

Since centerfire .22’s are all .224”, they are legal as well. Frankly, I’ve seen enough big game animals killed with a rim fire to not worry too much about it, if the guy using it knows what he’s doing. I’d like to see something done about shotguns only for deer in the southern part of the state. Ye...
