You will most definitely get an occasional dud with .22 ammo.

I couldn’t fathom how many rounds of .22 went through the wash when I was a young kid and mom doing wash

Hunted two times out of an in closed blind / hut , because my daughter doesn’t handle the cold well , so I sat there with her ,I do camp out of it , .all 4X 8 of it, and store stuff in it to which was my reason for building it .After we sold my father in laws house , I had no place to keep stuff or dry off when it rained .

Yep I sit In stands , no longer walk miles  trying to jump a buck or drive across muddy farm fields all day ,hell im  60 with a bunch of worn out parts  ,but I draw the line at elevated blinds ,and atvs , perhaps when I reach my 80’s .

But now that I’m on CDB oil that seems unlikely.

Well I think you have a great shot of reaching your 80's.

Pulled the trigger and it didn't go boom and it had a dent in it. Guessing it had dent and something was wrong with the shell.  Found it laying in leaves below the stand. 
Did you ever try to reshoot this same round to see if it would go bang?

Just wondering if the primer was seated in to far or something.

My son had the same problem this year and j told him to clean out the firing pin channel in the bolt face. Sometimes gunk and oil collect in there that might inhibit the firing pin from having the correct position or pressure.

Opening day taught me I needed another a new one of these in my life.  Hate having to stuff my hands between my harness and into jacket pockets.  
 
And insulated boot covers.

Anyone see The Hunting Public video from NY. Holy crap that was AWESOME!!! Some of the best footage I've ever seen. Just watched it and highly recommend.

Down by me you can’t use motorized vehicles on state or dep lands, so you gotta drag. Most times on my dad’s land, we just drag the 1/2 mile out rather than drive home to get atv and drive back. Plus the deer usually die in a steep and rocky spot so an atv is pointless.

 

I, too, enjoy the drag. It allows me to soak in the moment of the buck with my hands around the rack.

40 degrees no wind. It’s supposed to get cold windy and rain today. I’m heading to the park going to go straight to that ridge I was on yesterday and see if I can find a good track to follow.
Good luck everyone!!!

i have - one time on a different gun tried the same core lokt 3 times it didnt fire.  This gun is new and first season using it but fired all preseason just fine.  A bullet with a dent in it that didnt fire - just a bad round

Good luck all.

That's interesting.. messy.. maybe dangerous.. but an interesting idea for transporting smaller deer. 
Would never work. You would have to cut it up into small pieces and make a bunch of trips

We looked for 3 hours.  We separated to check all possible areas. No luck.

I must admit my above post was somewhat tongue in cheek. More seriously, I would consider making a travois (see picture below) in the field, rather than just dragging the carcass, for a real long haul. Another idea is from @turkeyfeathers. In a post a while back he talked about used a heavy-duty tarp-like piece of fabric cut from a deflated golf dome as a drag carpet, if you will.

I made this "Deer Body Bag" to drag deer out of the woods. It slides really well and protects the deer carcass while transporting on the hitch rack or inside a car to protect the interior from blood or ticks. Then is easy to wash.

You MADE that? That is awesome. I really wish I know how to sew. My mother was a professional dressmaker--I did not inherit the gene!

I’ve made a “deer back pack” before with does but never a buck. I cut into the knee joint on the front legs so I can break the leg and then I make a cut behind the Achilles’ tendon on the rear legs like you do for hanging a deer. Then I put the part of the front leg I broke through the cut near the Achilles to make a strap. Sounds more complicated than it is. I wish I had a picture but I only do it when I’m by myself and have a ways to go. Works well. Would work on a buck too but Im not that ambitious and just go get a atv or truck in that situation.

I usually don’t gut them in the field either so I don’t really end up very bloody. I have a lot of coyote issues so I put my gut piles way out of the way of my good bedding and feed locations.
