Bloodied he new CZ tonight

timctimc Senior MemberPosts: 6,684 Senior Member
Headed to the ranch right after lunch with the family yesterday to get in some woods time. Didn't see much this morning, just some turkey and a pack of Javalina. This evening was looking pretty sad, nothing moving until just before dark when a boar walked out by the feeder. I flipped the safety off, set the trigger and sent a 120 grain A-Max bullet through his head at 90 yards. This was an eye popping DRT shot so know it has plenty of energy for these hardheaded varmints!
I'm very pleased with the new CZ, this one is a keeper!

    excellent.

    Yeah, good job Tim. I had a suck day as far as seeing anything. Saw one doe this morning but I didn't have the car hidden well enough down the sendero, and when the doe saw it she turned tail for the next Zip Code. We're going again in the morning. This is it for the does this year so we better produce if we want anymore tender meat.

    This one wasn't too big, maybe 110-120 pounds but he smelled bigger; phew! I don't keep any of the boars just because I don't like dealing with skinning those stinky porkers. I'm happy just knowing there is one less of those destructive creatures.

    Yep, when the eyes pop out you know you're bullet is generating the right amount of internal force!:yikes:

    Very nice job planting a head shot on him in waning light. Nice way to get the nice rifle broken in!
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    I thought you could only kill werewolves with silver bullets. So A Max has some silver bullets?
