I managed 75 Chucks in my first fukk year of Chuck hunting. I used mainley a Savage 12FV chambered un 22-250. I also nailed several using a Marlin 17V HMR . I bought a Savage 93FV late in the year and took a couple with it as well.
I'll be adding a Bushmaster VArmint Rifle AR-15 as well as a Savage 12BVSS in .243 and and ArmaLite AR-50BMG as well this spring. Money and time permitting I would like to add a .221 fireball as well. My goal for 2003 is 100 chucks.
I fill my time right now mostly Coyote hunting. I'm still looking for a good place to fox hunt and learn the basics. Perhaps if anyone is interested I would gladly trade some time with them in a good fox populated are are ain exchange for some good chuck hunting and perhaps a coyote trip.
Happy Holidays to all and I'm glad I found this page. I can be reached via E-mail @ [email protected], also I live just west of Cleveland.
I am 47 years old and retired, I love to varmint hunt here in Ohio plus I take trips to South Dakota to shoot prairie dogs.
I got myself in the 1000yd downrange club with VHA and I am hopping to move to the 2000yd club this next spring.
Here in Ohio I have shot 106 groundhogs and 12 coyotes now in SD ahooting prairie dogs all I can say that there was alot of tham.
Man i used to hunt them all the time...spend to much time & $ fishing anymore.
I have over 700 acres of private land to hunt(deer creek runs through it, mostly cattle fields) perfect for yard pigs and coyotes,.
A few yrs back i bought a Rem. 22/250 (700 action) Sendaro with free floating target barrel. I love this gun...you can sure reach out and touch something with it.
My boss at work just moved here from Texas and has a 1000yrd gun(wildcat load)..he also has a 22/250 and does go to SD for Pd too, says its a lot of fun..i might have to join him next trip out there?
Good hunting/fishing to all.
What a passion of mine, been hunting them for about 12 years now, my favorite guns for the deed depending on my mood could be a Remington 700VS in either a 223 or 308, a Remington 700VLS in 22-250, or maybe a Ruger 77R in 257 Roberts, cant wait until spring so I can get on them again, would like to start getting my Contender in 22 hornet some more work as well, anybody want to talk hogs or guns drop me a line.
I have killed many with my bow, but when I need to remove a large number from an area I have a cheap savage .223 bolt action with a cheap Simmons 3X9 scope. When you are use to killing them with a bow at point blank range, even my cheap gun feels like a killing machine.
I was shooting it at 150 yards a couple weeks ago and was shooting a 1 inch group. That is plenty good enough for me . Most of the hogs I shoot with it are only about 50 yards away.
I'm a groundhog hunter . I use rifles and handguns . Have rifles and handguns ranging from 17 caliber to 45 caliber . The 17's have been my favorite's the past couple of years but I still use some of the others once in a while .
