Many have tried as hard as they could to head out to the field with the biggest magnum bolt gun they can afford and that is okay provided you can hit with it. In keeping with the idea of keeping all my rounds in the magical 9″ pie plate (not the mythical broad side of the barn which is hard to miss) I think many hunters find that it really does not take much to anchor a big whitetail provided they hit it in the proper location (heart/lung area).
The adventures of Rawly and Dave (my brother-in-law) continued this past weekend at his farm which we term seasonally as “deer camp.” We noticed considerably less deer than past years but had a great time none-the-less. Of the four hunters at camp, all were using either lever action rifles and revolvers. For opening weekend we harvested a doe and a nice 4×4 that I rattled in on opening morning. The old 35 Remington cartridge is as good a deer round today as it ever was. A good lever action rifle for most of Nebraska is just hard to beat! How many of you love the LEVER?
