No, I could've easily but it was chaos, the Mennonites we're pushing the neighbors property and had deer running all over the place. Didn't dare set my rifle down in case I saw a big buck.

Woke up at 4 am too steady sleet and rain . Decided to wait it out drink some coffee . 5 am  I walk out on porch and see a  red glow from the neighbors house.. then I notice flames licking up the garage . I call 911 drive over. No lights in the house so I start honking the horn  as I pull in . As I get out of the truck  they are coming out the door . Garage car and a 4 wheeler are a total loss . Smoke damage and minor water damage to the house .

As I was the one to call it it I was asked to wait and talk to fire marshal.  My hunting clothes smelled of smoke and burned plastic so I had to change and shower again . By the time they took my statement it was to late to go hunting . 

Thank God everybody  was ok and the volunteer fire departments  got there so quick and nocked it down so fast .

This was out in 7p, first time out there this year. 

I think 7p is low on people's thoughts when it comes to good hunting.  That's where I do 95% of my hunting on stateland. There's  very good deer numbers in the unit.

Majority of my deer are 7s, and not far from the pa border. 

My office used to be in conklin. Before Maines closed. I saw some slammers in that industrial park

Well wife missed a buck behind the tower. Had two misfires with factory Hornady American Whitetail 139 interlocks. Rife went off on the third shell but she was so frazzled i think she rushed it. Seems like a good hit in the primer but without proper measurements its anyones guess. This happened last year to me on a big white coyote. I completely stripped the bolt last year and used the proper lube. Thought it was a bad box of ammo. Now im not so sure. I have a few other brands i can try but i have zero confidence in that gun until i know whats going on. The federal and Remington ammo i have the primers are almost flush, the Hornady are recessed. Ill bring ammo and gun to my gunsmith tomorrow and have him look at it. I guess she will have to use another rifle in the meantime. This sucks because before the season i shot half the box and they all went boom.
