I just got a new toy. It's a Weatherby UltraLight (5.75 lbs) in the short lived factory chambering of 338-06 A-Square. I also got 2.5 boxes of factory ammo in the deal. I have not hit the range yeat BUT it handles great in my basement! :D I do not reload & factory Weathery ammo appears to be VERY hard to come by! I like the "different" chamberings!

I deer hunt with a 12ga Remington 1100 with a bushnell 3-9 scope using Remington copper solid 1oz bullets. Never have not gotten a deer no matter where it was hit unless I missed obviously. It's legal to use rifles where we are but land is too flat and landowner doesn't allow us to use rifles. Only two spots on the 375 acre property offering shots over 125yds anyways. I got this when my father died about 7yrs ago.

I let my brother in law use my fathers 30.06 for this deer season as he can use a rifle where he hunts. He ended up getting a nice 4pt for his first deer. He was extremely elated! Even more than the similar setup I have which he bought. Called me right away. I had never used the gun and there is a much greater possibility for him to run into a bear where he hunts than me.

I used to be a pretty competitive skeet shooter so I have a bunch of other guns. My best is a beretta 682 gold in a 12ga over/under with briley match weight tubes that enables you to insert the tubes to change to a 20, 28, or .410. I got it when I was 14 and currently 30 although it's been a few yrs since I shot it.

Welcome to the forum gentlemen! :) I am sure your input will be useful. Convict Charley? With a handle like that I just got to ask, how did you come by that moniker? ;)
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

Well nothing major just what most of my friends call me. I'm now 30 but two wks before I was 21 I was arrested at a country's music festival for underage consumption and fake identification. Cost me $500 and A few misdemeanors. I'm a pretty friendly person so it just sort of stuck I guess. Never been in any trouble since either. Don't plan on it. Half my friends call me Charlie but the other half just say convict. Buddy had to bail me out. It's a money scheme though that was my bail and fine if I didn't show up in court it was forfeited.

Ooops! The missteps of youth? Hope I wasn't being too nosy. We have a whole thread on here just for why you picked you moniker and what it means to you. There is another about occupations. Some of the answers may surprise you. It's not often convicts and guns go together in a good way. ;) Welcome to the forum.

870 Express with vent rib, full choke and Dixie Tri-Ball buckshot. This combination works extremely well in the thick cover of the coastal swamps and pine barrens. In this thick cover, a deer or hog that runs a hundred yards before dropping is usually lost.
