      WELCOME NEW UJ MEMBERS   06/25/2017

      It seems the word is out and UJ is enjoying a steady stream of newly Registered Members. Welcome to all of you, and we are all looking forward to your positive participation. I strongly suggest you review the Board Guidelines that have been in place since 2002. The most significant thing being that UJ is a NO POLITICS BOARD. LInk:  UJ BOARD GUIDELINES   Also UJ stays afloat mainly through Member Donations. Once a Donation is made you are placed in the Contributing Member Group with extra Priviliges. I am getting very few new Donations so hopefully this will spur that on a bit. Link:  New Members/Donations/Priviliges

Granddaughter's mule deer buck

The kid has taken several md & wt does / yearling bucks, but decided she would hold out for 4+ pointer (western count) this year.

Super! What was she shooting?

 

I've really been enjoying all the posts and pics of members' children and grandkids with game they've taken. Bodes well for the future of outdoor pursuits.

Rem 700, 7-08, Rem managed recoil loads (140g, I think).  She shot him at 220 yards (farther than Gramps approves¬¬).  Son told her to hold a bit high. So she did.... and spined the buck just barely aft of the shoulder.

That's some fine shooting.  220 yards isn't a gimme for anybody.

Congrats

Nice buck.  Like others have said in previous posts.  The 7-08 is a deadly round. My son started shooting one when he was 7. 22 now and still shoots that caliber. It is a good round for all ages.

Yes, and yes, on it being a round that will last anyone a lifetime. It's basically all I use for deer in Maine outside of a bow.

Nice buck and she looks happy, probably didn't like the drag though it is part of the hunt.
