#148692 Crossbow gets the job done

Posted by jfarleyx on 15 November 2013 - 11:26 AM

My first coyote with a crossbow. While I was deer hunting this morning this gal made the mistake of cruising by my stand. Wasn't planned, but at least there is one less coyote on the farm!

#135664 This bobcat is well fed

That would make a nice trophy mount!




#132440 Great calls and sling

Posted by jfarleyx on 01 June 2013 - 12:12 PM

I want to thank Fred (fr3db3ar) for an awesome paracord rifle sling and Rodney (bigdrowdy1) for 2 great deer calls. Also, thanks to Don (youngdon) for two great predator calls (not pictured - they are at the farm). The sling looks really good on my new (well, it's used, but new to me) Remington R25 243 Winchester. The calls sound as good as they look. Should be a lethal combo this fall. Thanks guys!

 

I'm ready to hunt!  :hunter4:

#132183 The duel!

Posted by jfarleyx on 29 May 2013 - 05:34 PM

A raccoon and bobcat square off. I'm sure a little fur was lost. Too bad the camera didn't catch all the action.

Shortly before, another bobcat stopped by. This one is a little larger.

#131348 Yote blood on the Axis....

Nice shooting and thanks for posting! I'm envious of you guys that can hunt at night. That seems like it would be a lot of fun. 




#129337 New rifle stock!

Posted by jfarleyx on 01 May 2013 - 06:52 PM

My new Manners Custom Stock is ready! It's a MCS-T5 with custom camo, ambidextrous thumbhole, and is made from carbon fiber, making it a little lighter at around 2 pounds. In a couple months it will be part of a teflon coated, helical barrel, 7mm magnum rig. This fall it will be traveling with me to Colorado on an Elk hunt. Can't wait to see the final product!  :mrgreen:

#128748 Brand of .243 that you guys shoot?

Posted by jfarleyx on 27 April 2013 - 07:45 PM

+1 for the Tikka T3. I have one in 243 and it's very accurate. But, so is my Savage Model 10 Predator 223. 

 

If you're looking for a yote killer, you should also consider a 223, 22-250, 204 Ruger, or 220 swift. I've used and really like rifles from Savage, Tikka, and Remington. They're both affordable and accurate, and I find their actions to be pretty smooth. All of them can be tack drivers. I'm not saying other brands are not those things, but I've not owned any other brand. 

 

I use an e-call (Primos Alpha Dogg), so I can't comment on a hand call. I'm also shopping for one, in case batteries run out on e-call or I feel like making the hunt a little more challenging.
