    Default 2013 Hunting Photos

    Would it be possible to get a sticky going for 2013 Hunting pics? Some nice ones rolling in already. I direct the uneducated to the sticky when they say the AR has no use for hunting. The sticky could be for pics only and forum could be for discussion. Just thinking out loud.

    What do you all think about a sticky for state by state regs pertaining to hunting with an AR? Things like mag restrictions, suppressors, electronic sights, etc?

    This is the 2013 Hunting Pics sticky now. Post what you bag and any relevant info (location, weight, ammo, distance, etc). Create a separate thread if you want to discuss. The 2012 thread can be found here: http://68forums.com/forums/showthrea...Hunting-Photos

    I shot this spike on the last day of spike and doe season. I used a Stag Arms 7H with Hornady 120 SST. It dropped in its tracks. This rifle/ammo combo has become my go to gun this season.

    Got this Yote this weekend with my RRA 6.8 using Hornady 120gr SST. Shot was about 120 yards. He never knew what hit him.

    Stag Arms with 120 SST. The last picture shows the problem we have. The brown one in the middle is no longer a problem.

    It looks like the 120 SST bullets are smacking some animals this year. lol

    Finally got an opportunity to shoot at more than paper.



    95gr ttsx did more than adequate job. 75yards, no tracking. Animal harvested is a black Catalina Ram.
