Very nice work! I am craving some venison, but living in the city usually means that my hunting is on the internet. mad.gif

I've had this rifle for over 25 years. I received it from my dad on my 25th birthday and it has been a proven freezer filler from the first day I hunted with it back in 1984. I've had many other rifles in the safe and nearly all of them were sold or traded but this is the one I will not cut loose of because of its tried and true design and proven performance. As you can see, I even had to replace the wood stock with the B&C unit instead of buying a new rifle!

This is my rifle. There are many like it but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my rifle is useless. Without my rifle I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before God I swear this creed: my rifle and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but peace. Amen.

Nice shot on that Muley, and a great story! I had a primer fail on my one chance at a small bull elk this year. He was only 15 yards from me in dark timber PDT_Armataz_01_05.gif On the way back to where we had parked I jumped an albino muley, It was an awesome sight! Pretty exciting day for me over all.

While it is true that Pvt. Gomer Pyle cited that just prior to opening up Gunny Hartman in Full Metal Jacket, I was actually reciting the Rifleman's Creed (akaThe Creed of the US Marine) without giving the movie any thought at all! Dad was a Marine for a short while and he's the one that passed his shooting skills to me and told me to pass them along to my children when the time was right. He made me learn the creed before I could ever fire a gun.

For the record, I'm glad he did. PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Elk camp is just that for me. It's the annual trip with the boys to the mountains. The week to spend in the near silent woods where your thoughts are clearer. I never have a problem obtaining game meat around here. Now being 15 yards from a 600 pound animal with sharp horns, seeing wolf tracks in the snow, having a red fox nearly walk over your legs, and seeing an albino buck.. all priceless

So, I thought I was going to be at work when this happened! I decided it would be best to learn how to do this so I was there!

Here's what it looked like oin the kitchen here at the church yesterday!

Trevor and two 'drumsticks'

We had already quartered it and peeled 90% of the meat off the skeleton before the word camera ever crossed my mind! Note the exit wound.

That plate would soon be filled with a couple of pounds of meat destined to become jerky.

Careful work resulted in no cut fingers!

These guys were almost as meticulous as vultures!

My job was steaks and stew meat.

In all we would up with about 15 pounds of hamburger, 20 pounds of steak/roasts, 2 pounds of jerky and 6 pounds of stew meat. We ate grilled tenderloin medalions last night and are smoking a venison meatloaf tonight (with Q-view).
