Recently acquired 1936 Winchester Mod. 71 with bolt peep sight and a nice bull (52inches).
Using 250gr Woodleigh and 48gr H4895 at 150 yds or so.
Our 16 months old daughter decided to have a nap while we worked on the animal. She woke up 3 hours later, just in time to watch us bringing the last quarter into the boat.
So now we're ready for winter.
It's a relaxing feeling to know that you've got all you need for the next several months:
The boat is out and that marks the end of a busy season. Now we have to wait for freeze-up to travel anywhere; possibly the end of November/early December.
Soon we'll loose direct sunlight in the cabin for 3 months.
But we can go 6 miles up river at solstice to have a glimpse of sunrays for a few minutes, weather permitting.
I can live with that!
