    That rubber is made and sold specifically for bow handles. Gave it a try and liked it. They don't say how to hold it on though, lol. Them 2 strips of engineering technology have lasted the whole time, almost a year, lol.

    I didn't get out until this afternoon since I had church this morning. We got out to the blind and about 1/2 hour later a 6point walked out. My buddy put a good hit on him and he dropped right there. 15 minutes later some does walked out looking at the dead buck, and I took a nice doe. Thank You Jesus! We were truly blessed tonight! I think I'll wait to score this deer since I know there's a 12 point buck wandering around. IMG_0998.jpg

    My church buddy's 6 point. He hadn't hunted in 4 years or so, so he's thrilled!

    Gentlemen, I was blessed again tonight with another buck. Thank You again Jesus! I believe it's the same 8 pointer that's been skirting my bow range all season. That 25-06 does a number on them. I shot him about 60 yards away on the other side of a creek, then he crossed the creek spraying blood and ran right under me, jumped a fence from the public I was on to some private, and then tipped over and never got back up. Thanks to OnX Maps I found the landowner and got permission to retrieve him. :)
    2nd buck, so he scores as a doe- 5 Points
    In addition it the archery 10 Point- 17 Points= Totoal 22 Points

    I am tagged out in this contest boys.

    Thanks Rick. Yeah, this one was fun. It was the first deer I shot with this rifle. I bought it stock with a cheap synthetic stock, and put the laminated on it. Then I put the Leupold scope, replaced the trigger with a Timney, and spent a lot of time working up hand loads for it. It gives a sense of accomplishment when it all works out.

    BTW, I'm waiting for ice so I can get back out after some walleye. :)

    How's gun season going guys? I was able to take a doe Friday night. My season is over, 3 is more than enough and I was able to help out some family members with some venison as well.

    I went and sighted in a new scope yesterday. Was fun. I rarely shoot or hunt with a gun anymore, but I enjoyed the time at the range. Did some scouting right after, and then decided to hunt. Might try again tomorrow. I'm not to excited about gun season anymore. Dec 1st, if we don't get to much snow, I'll likely try to get a few more sits with my bow in to fill the freezer more.

    Congrats on the Doe and great season walleyerick
