Thank you for the story.
It brought a smile to my face and a tear to my eye.

My Dad hunted until he was 85 or so.
After that, he'd sit in his truck, cigar smoke rolling out, listening for one of us to shoot!

Sounds like a great hunt for both of you! Meat in the freezer to boot. Tough to beat that!


Just livin' the dream...and paying full price for it!

Rob, in your excitement...you made a mistake
smile

I had that Savage 14 built for my Dad, the barrel was cut down 3" & re crowned, stock cut down also .

My goal was to try and match My Dad's favorite rifle in Weight and Length of pull. His .44 Ruger semi Auto which he shoots well ,if only to 100 yards. [Linked Image]
[Linked Image]

I wanted him to have a Rifle that fit him (with a rest) into his 1 good shoulder. A rifle to shoot past 100 yds with light recoil.

I doubt a Creedmoor would have killed an animal that large at 400 yards. Those are magnum caliber distances.


What??? I've taken pronghorns at 400 and 500 yds with my 6mm Rem. Single shot kills. No magnum needed on that size game.
A Creedmoor would have done fine, but there is nothing wrong with using the 7mm RM.


Is it legal to fill someone else's tag for them in Minn? I don't have any issue with what you did, hunting together as you were, but if it was not legal you just put yourself on record for an illegal activity.

Personally, I would have shot the deer the first time I paced it off.

Not picking at scabs, but you stepped off 395 PACES, which is a lot shorter than a yard.


Every kid needs a Dog and a Curmudgeon.

Remember Bowe Bergdahl, the traitor.

Beware! Jill Pudlewski, Ron Oates and Keven Begesse are liars and thiefs!

I watched a mature rutting mule deer buck fall within 20 yards of where he was standing when shot to a creedmoor at 437 laser ranged yards this past week. The same creedmoor took a bull elk in 2019 at 475 and a female pronghorn at 525 the same year. I have personally dropped 2 large hogs in thier tracks at 400+ yards with my own creedmoor and killed a cow elk at 386. I'm in no way knocking a 7 mag it is a great cartridge for big game but don't under sell what a creedmoor can do at distance.

Glad to hear it was legal. It should be the way you did it, but would not be in all states. Congrats on a great bonding moment with your dad and a fine shot.
