Racking in another bullet in my ruger American this morning and had the bolt come all the way out. Is this a design flaw where maybe I nudged it or something else?

The long button on the left side allows you to slide the bold all the way out.

Harvested the tree, hung some lights, sprint to my 3S spot with my partner and bows. 2 sets of 2 does came by on the wrong side- walking, walking, walking....right to my scent cone- halt! About face! Hunt over! Would have been sweet to hang a tree and a doe in the same day!

Well saw 5 doe.  Most of them at 200plus yards and one at 70 or so with no lane to shoot.  Fun time with the kiddo.

Congrats! Why not gut in the woods? Less weight to drag.

Still hunted the middle of the day and sat the last couple hours before dark. 0 deer, but 10 turkeys. Might have to revisit the area for spring turkey season.

We built one at our parents that is 8x12...complete with a staircase, balcony, and wood stove.  The outside is fully finished with trim, soffit, etc like mine.   

Is the 8x12 to big and to hard to see out all the windows? I'm in the planning stages for one now and want some space but want it easy to see out each window easily


Switching gears to habitat improvements!

Hunting partner sent a few pics from 3s across the street from his grandfather’s cemetery (the gentlemen who started the hunting tradition for him and subsequently me). The 8 and 4 were locked up pretty hard he said....it’s still/back on boys and girls

2 doe spotted on watch this afternoon 1 of them came about 5 steps from coming home with me but she wouldn't come from behind the brush. One more chance tomorrow afternoon and my season here in the northern tier is over.

Another great hunt this evening in 8N.  I’ve sat on the same bucket for three nights in a row and seen 2 dozen deer.  Probably should have pulled the trigger a time or two but oh well.

Hunting most of the day tomorrow and a buddy just gave me another doe tag.  Hoping for a successful day.

Another round ?! How’d the first one fly ? 
And hope not about bolt. Thinking about that or savage for next year 


My belief is that it went deflected... some brush (but not thick) and I just can’t accept a clean miss at 60 yards.

I should have had a follow up, the 4 doe didn’t immediately take off, but the whole bolt came out. So weird...

My Abolt has a button on the opposite side to release it, maybe the Ruger is similar and out had it depressed as you pulled the bolt back?

It is similar and all I can fathom, but dang...

Shot a doe today in PA. Donated to a family that can use the meat. 5 people got 3 doe, a 8pt and a coyote. 180 yard shot .243 bang...flop... dead. Longest I’ve shot,  before that was 80 yards. Also shot it in my pajamas from the cabin.

Exactly!  Too big for one person to hunt out of....my parents will lounge out there so it is multi use.  I like my 6x8 to hunt from.

      The procedure below to carry the bow is detailed below:
      You have to use a cotton towel or something similar. You have to wrap it around the bowstring. Doing so ensures that it will not cause an injury with the bowstring coming in contact with your body. It will not be that sharp either. Once you cover the bowstring with the towel, you have to wear it like a sling. So that it will not fall away from your body. The best way to cover the bowstring is to use a large enough towel. You can wrap it around twice as well. When making a sling out of the cotton towel, you have to ensure that you tighten it to get a snug fit. In that case, it will not slip away. Consequently, it will remain in place. When using this technique to carry a bow on your back, it is essential to practice before going in the wilderness. Only when you can move briskly and without noise using the scanning mechanism should you go ahead with it. To remove the bow, you have to hold it at the bottom. After that, you have to slip it over your head as well as arm. Doing so ensures that you can remove it quickly. When trying to focus on a prey, you need to remove the bow quickly. The technique for removal that we have highlighted above can certainly help you do so.

      Just want to relay an experience I had this weekend regarding hunting regulations and other hunters.
      I've had several  hunter's tell me last weekend(10/12/2020) that muzzleloader was open, it is not. I also had two other hunters last weekend confront me as to why my son was carrying around a rifle and hunting deer. I calmly explained the youth weekend and the rules around it. After that everything was cool and we continued our hunt.
      I know at the end of the day we're all trying to participate in a sport we love and maybe harvest some game. My thought is to just make sure you're up on your local hunting regulations. Not just so you are within the rules, but also so you can assert your right to be where you are, hunting the way you're hunting.
      I know when I have been operating outside of the regulations I have appreciated a person respectfully correcting my ignorance and I try to pay it forward by being informed and respectfully educating when required.
      Thanks for listening, off my SB...

      Hello,
      I am in the process of purchasing my first rifle to go hunting deer for the first time.  However, I have received contradicting information regarding the types of rifles that are legal.  Based on what I have read, it appears that I am able to use a bolt-action rifle with a pistol grip and a detachable magazine which holds 10 rounds.  However, I have been told that this is not the case. I can't seem to find where this is stated.  Can any one here provide me with some insight into this? I'd really appreciate it.
      Thanks in Advanced,
      Alfredo
