Fresh scrapes just started popping up here (being Colbert County) around 01/07. Seen 2 scrapes that were bigger than the seat of a large recliner. Tried to a take a shot at a large 3x3, only because he is the biggest 3x3 I've ever seen, but I had the worse luck ever. I pulled the trigger on him and my firing pin hit the round but the round went nowhere! 3x3 heard the clap of my pin hitting the round and got the heck out of dodge. I was using those Winchester PowerMax .270 rounds and nothing happened. pinhole in case but head still intact. First time that's ever happened to me. Switched back to Federals. Anyway, back to the original question...scrapes, rubs and our does are traveling together.
