22 Creedmoor workout

Recommended Posts

Prior to Christmas got to spend a couple of days chasing deer,pigs and coyotes....basically whatever happened to stick it head out. Needed to cull a bunch of bucks thin some does.

I had brought my 6x45 too but ended up only shooting the 22 Creedmoor once I found what the main intention was.

Shots varied from 60 to a long of 420 on one hog.

 

I shot 16 various deer

Others using my rifle killed 5 more so it was 21 for 21 no misses. All but three DRT all shoulder shots.

Never heard of a 22 Creedmore , but obviously a killing machine in the right hands . Sounds like a heck of a great time . Got to love those cull hunts .

Culls? Open the gate and send some of them this way. :o

 

OP

Throw some corn out and maybe they will hop the fence and head your way. This place is 50 sq miles and low fence.

 

Here is my cull from two years ago didn't shoot anything last season

Those would be welcome, too! Nice little deer there from two years ago you got, by the way. I would have preferred he be a little darker in color, but I would have probably taken him anyhow, just like you did. I seldom let nit-picking get in the way of taking my deer, so long as they are breathing at the time. That's the one trait I stand firm on.
