Archery starts tomorrow morning in Illinois.
Hope to have at least one (if not 2) dragging behind the quad tomorrow night. No tags left behind.
Backstraps on smokin' fast carbon. My fav.

Hadn't thought of that. Fresh jerky strips while you hunt.
I like it.
Now I know what to use my old 1903A3 Springfield 30-06 for.
Might make it worth carrying around, now.
Wonder if I can install a small griddle a couple inches in front of the receiver......hmmm.
Might make it worth the shoulder bruise.
I'll get back to you.

Probably just stick to the .308 Gunsite Scout.
It does an excellent job of putting blood on the ground and meat in the freezer.
I can heat up the 30-06 later to smoke some venison jerky.

Only shot it at 75 yds. so far but three shots are smaller than a dime. Barrel heats up REAL fast though. Thanks, Stu
Great catch .I just picked up a M77 RL in .270 the other week. It came out of the factory Jan 89. I believe it will be a joy to carry. Not quite as heavy as the M1A :-).
