    Thanks everyone.

    I have made a lemongrass/cinnamon soup and sauerbraten and I still have many, many huge bags of meat to cook up.

    I love it.

    Since the running joke is about it being a "woman's gun" and Christie fits the description, no peanut gallery comments :tooth:

    Most of that is for the benefit of someone else anyway.

    Congrats on your first deer Christie :beer:

    edit to add I used .270 150gr. Vanguard @ 30 yards

    Congratulations Christi on having the intelligence to use such a great Cartridge and Rifle. The .270 Winchester is my favorite cartridge and the Vangard-Howa 1500 action is one of my favorite rifles. I have a Howa, which is the Vangard's action, with a Krieger barrel in . 250 Savage. It is a great combo too. My .270 is a Model 70 Winchester made in 1966. I bought it new in High School in the summer between my Jr. and Sr. year. I have killed more deer with it than any other rifle. I now have several rifles in several calibers, some I have had custom made for me. But I still go back to that old Model 70 .270 Winchester as my go to rifle.

    I realize there are many great calibers out there and some may even be better all around, but for deer, I don't think anything outdoes it. I also love the 30-06, and several .25 calibers. I have a 300 Weatherby Mag. and a 7mm Remington Mag. I can see great potential in all of them, but that old .270 I just can't forget. It has done it for me for 46 years and just keeps on keeping on.


    So congratulations on it all. I love to see women hunting. Mellisa Bachman is one of my favorite Outdoor show hosts and she hunts everything with everything from Bow to modern rifles and all in between. The more women we have in this sport represents that many more votes. If we want to keep our rights we need as many people as we can get to join our ranks. So keep on keepin on and I hope you kill a bunch of deer.

    Edited to Add:

    I suckered into posting on here again, because I had forgotten that it has been here since November and I saw recent posts just above here, LOL!!! But anyway, what I said here is pertenant to the occasion since the name "Woman's Gun" predictably resurfaced. In my opinion, there is no such thing as a woman's gun. A rifle is a rifle is a rifle. But it there were such a thing that some would call a woman's gun because of reduced recoil and light weight, it would be one of the 7mms such as 7mm Mauser or 7mm-08 or even the .260 Remington. It might could be a .25-06 too, but nothing else in the 06 case family would qualify as such an animal. I guarantee there are few of you guys here who would relish shooting my .270 5 times off a bench without using something for an extra pad.
    This also brings up another good point. Not all women are recoil skiddish. I know one woman here that is a farmer's wife and she's a hell of a farmer herself that regularly shoots her .458 Win Mag. and she's not a big woman. So the "Woman's Gun" is a figment of some people's imagination. There are plenty of us men who are wimpy about recoil too. I for one do not like it. But when at the bench I use my Past Recoil Shield and while Hunting I don't notice it.

    She said herself that she wanted to plug it with her .303 like any good descendant of the Empire, but the fates intervened.  So really, a .270 isn't even a woman's gun of choice. :D

    Nicely done!  All three of mine thus far were about that size.  I'd say he's tasty.

    Please tell me, who else is gone?

    May they all rest in peace.

    I miss this forum and I intend to go hunting again this season for first time in a couple of years.

    Oh he was tasty.
    Tired of relying on b12 supplements and would rather have venison in my freezer to pull from for meals again.
    I better get a range membership again to start practicing with my .303 again.

    I was wondering. I'm still not clear on who this might be, but he really seemed to know the forum culture too well for a newbie.

    It was actually very cool to see this thread pop up again.  I love first harvest posts, in general.
