    For some reason I thought that this thread was a sticky. It should be, in my opinion. It would be cool to have twisted1's hog hunt info copied here too. I believe he got a hog over the weekend with one of my WFNGC loads. A report is forthcoming.

    Anyone else for making this a sticky? Tazz10m has been around lately and could probably help us with this.

    Tater and Kegs, I had a thread a while back suggesting that we make THIS thread AND 21's WaxTube thread stickies.... his made it and mine didn't.... probably because there were no posts in it yet. I believe our acting mod is "Mrs. V" or "Mrs. VR" or something.... can't recall right now. She might be able to assist us with the sticky-ing.

    Hey congrats on the buck ctious! That's awesome.

    I too just had my first Glock 20 harvest! This morning, about 15 minutes after daylight she and several others came rite up the fence row i was sitting in between 2 cut corn fields. 15 yards quartered to me a shad more than i would've liked, but the shot was there and i felt pretty good for 15 yards. I am more than comfortable with that range keeping my shots every bit of inside a pop can. Corbon 135gr JHP @ 1450fps (factory projected) proved instant Lights Out. The Corbons were my ammo of choice because of the 3 different boxes i have, those were what i shot the most accurate and consistent. I was after a well place shot and got what i was looking for. Late doe season only here in southern Michigan. Still have one tag left, see what i can do!

    Nice job, MichiGun! That Nosler 135gr .40" bullet at high speed has sure taken more deer than I'd care to admit. Wow.... good shootin!

    Yes the 135gr did more than i could have asked for. I guess an exit would have been nice. Yet i realize the bullet was not designed for penetration. It did rather do exactly as it was designed to. Inside the goodies basket was pure MOOOOOSH!!!!. Never did recover the bullet. Found plenty of frag.

    I use XS BigDot. I love them. Very accurate when i take my time with them. Yet serve even better by the bedside!

    I carry the 135gr corbons. I picked up some 180gr Hornady XTP and a pound of Longshot today at Schupbechs. Gonna work up a good hunting load. Hopefully i can report how those work before season ends!

    That's what we like to hear. The 180-200gr XTP is just right for deer if you ask me... so long as you don't hit large bones (ribs, legs, spine are okay, shoulders are not). Wide, flat-nosed hardcast at high speed is extremely effective, as well, from what I hear. I will find out next season on that.

    Nice job. Congrats!

    I hope to try again next week during late muzzleloader season. Had a (wild) chance at some running does last shotgun season, but didn't connect.:upeyes::embarassed::crying:

    If you have the right kind of pet, you don't need a gun to go deer hunting. Photos speak for themselves.

    Nice one Ken. Thanks for posting the photos. Seems like there must be a lot of deer in Michigan. A few of the reports come from there. Enjoy those backstraps!
