He harvested a bunch of squirrel and we did ok on trapping. My oldest son trapped a Fisher. I tagged along with my brother and we harvested two fishers and a red fox.
I will post a picture of my sons Fisher in another post.
We elevated the Fisher after they were harvested for pictures.
Last night. 30-06 at 280 yards 165g SGK. DRT.
Halloween. 30-06 180g Nosler Partition. Just over 300 yards across a canyon. Livingston MT area. Rolled down the hill/mountain and hit the tree.
My son with his, shot about 3 minutes later. 300 WM 165g TTSX. About 320 yards. It was a great time. Don't think I could have scripted it to be any better.
Few of mine from this year.....gonna be doing more hunting in the next few months than most of the last year so should have more.
Kind of a “before snd after” of this year’s hunt. I hunt my own property, and actually can see my house from one stand. Hadn’t seen this guy at all all summer long, and he showed up on the game camera in a couple different spots where I have stands. Saturday morning I got it done!
I like the Ithaca 66, Highland Lofts, good gun to start a kid out on!
That's one proud young man, and a proud grandpa, too!
Savage 10 fp-sr/Griffin recce 7 suppressor
.308 win with 165 SGK soft points. The bullet(what was left of it) was found in the shoulder on the off side. He never even
twitched. There was 71 grains left in the bullet with 55 of that being the jacket.
The Ithaca 66 is a great starter gun for kids. I buy them when the price is right. I sol my brother the 12 gauge with rifle sights a 410 with a plain barrel. And he had a plain barrel 20 gauge he got for Christmas 52 or 53 years ago.
I have three 410s and three 20 gauges. A set for myself and two sets for my two grandsons.
The 20 gauge Ithaca 66 I use has a ventilated rib barrel I bought about 45 years ago. I seen one other one and it brought $750. Way to much for what it is.
I also have a bunch of the Ithaca model 49 22-lr single shots.
Sold one to my brother and must have at least four more.
I'd like to get a nice older Ithaca model 37 in 20 gauge this spring.
I'm partial to Ithacas:
My 37. @ 70's early 80's. I had another 12 ga. 37 some years ago, but I gave it to a friend for a wedding present.
My Ithaca 4E SBT. 1926.
And my oldest Ithaca, by far:
The grandfather clock my Great-great Grandfather, whom I'm named after, (yes, his name was entropy also- )brought from Maine to Minnesota in 1855.
Me too! Checked my tree stands and shooting lanes last week.... jonesing for opening day.
Good luck all. Stay safe out there.
I really like the older Ithaca guns.
King Ranch Nilgai hunt
A pile of green heads makes me instantly jealous. Awesome!
Our work has kept us from bowhunting the early rut for several years. #1 son was able to spend some time in one of our most productive deer stands on 11/13/21 and connected with this nice 9pt.
