TWO BUCKS FOR ANTHONY



HUNTER - ANTHONY RIDER 

MONTANA

 MontanaI hunted with S&W Outfitters at their East Fork Camp in Lewistown, Montana.  The camp is located in the Big Snowy Mountains in the central part of the state.  About 2 hours from Billings.  This hunt was a 5 day rifle deer hunt.   With a general deer permit I was able to take a mule deer or a Whitetail.  My heart was set on a mule deer.  Due to deep snow we weren't able to access the higher terrain where the mule deer live.  At that point I decided to focus on whitetails.  After passing up several bucks, I saw one in particular that I wanted.  Me and my guide came up with a game plan the evening after dinner.  The plan was to get set up over the big field before day light broke.   The next morning, we were all set up.  As it broke light I caught movement to my left along the fence line.  It was the buck we were after.  He had 2 does with him.  Another small buck showed up and the 2 bucks locked horns.  This went on for about 10 minutes.  The little buck ran off as he lost the fight.  I walked about 20 feet to a big pine tree and got my shooting sticks set up.  The buck finally exposed himself in the wide open.  I ranged him at 220 yards.  I settled the crosshairs on him and squeezed the trigger.  The buck immediately hunched up and ran over the hill.  We gave him about 30 minutes and then went looking for him.  He only ran 40 yards before pulling up.  He was a beautiful chocolate horned 9 pointers.  It was also a very special moment because I shot this buck with my grandfather’s Winchester model 70 featherlight chambered in 270 that he gave me several years ago.  It was topped with a Leupold 2-7.  I used a Winchester Silver tip 130grain bullet.   I shot this buck on November 15th.


This 9 pointer was shot watching a field in New Scotland NY at 157 yards and he ran and dropped only 70 yards away. Both were shot with a Winchester model 70 300Wsm.

HENRY USA - GOOD DEALS

Lesson #11 - Lesson #20
H001TMER - "Evil Roy" Edition .22 Mag
Did you know that this rugged machine is also available in .22 Mag? You do now! More caliber choices for a best seller is always a good thing!
MSRP $610
H001TMLB - Frontier Model Long Barrel 24" .22 Mag
With its 7-pound heft and a 14-inch length of pull, this is an adult rifle. However, with the balance point right between your hands and just under the rear sight, the rifle feels much lighter. Like a good lever-action rifle should, it seems to come alive when you pick it up.
MSRP $570
H001TMLP - Small Game Carbine .22 Mag
Sure, you could down a squirrel with a .45-70, but it wouldn't leave much meat on the bone. There's a better tool for the job, and this is it. From squirrel to rabbit to coyote this small game exterminator will let you take on any varmint or small game quickly and cleanly, just the way we like it.
MSRP $590
H001TMRP - Small Game Rifle .22 Mag
So many different flavors, right? If weight isn't a primary factor in your small game rifle buying decisions then you owe it to yourself to check this one out for its increased capacity. It still weighs under 6.5 lbs but comes with a full-size 20" blued steel octagonal barrel. At the ready with 12 rounds of .22 Magnum power that will hit right where you aim with the Skinner Peep Sights.
MSRP $590
H001TMSPR - Frontier Threaded Barrel .22 Mag
One of the limitations of a tube magazine is that you need to remove a suppressor for every reload. Not the case with this model! The full 24" threaded barrel is mated with a shorter magazine tube, so you can reload freely without having to unscrew the suppressor. No need to spook every critter in the woods now!
MSRP $596
H001TPM - Special Edition Philmont Scout Ranch Rifle
Celebrating one of the most prestigious BSA adventure camps. It's offered with the Philmont® Black Bull logo embellished with 18 kt. gold plate on the right side of the receiver cover. Into the right side of the American walnut stock is laser etched and hand painted in multiple colors a rendering of Philmont’s iconic Tooth of Time, a 9,003 foot molar in the sky. On the forearm is the Philmont® scripted emblem bracketed by their horse and cattle brand insignias.
MSRP $599.95
H001TRP - Small Game Rifle .22 S/L/LR
What's the best rifle for small game hunting? The choice is simple once you factor in the real walnut stocks, blued steel octagonal barrel, large loop lever upgrade, and Skinner Peep Sights from the factory, all for an exceptional price.
MSRP $499.95
H001TSPR - Frontier Threaded Barrel .22 S/L/LR
Imagine plinking tin cans, but the sound of the bullet hitting the can is louder than the gun you're shooting them with. This model takes the already quiet .22 LR and turns it into a whisper. No longer do you need to find a gunsmith to thread the barrel of your favorite .22 lever action rifle.
MSRP $502
H001Y - Lever Action Youth .22 S/L/LR
Lightweight and compact. Weighing just 4.5 lbs with an overall length of 33" this is the perfect fit for the youngster in your life to get started in shooting sports with a down-sized American classic.
MSRP $360
H002B - U.S. Survival AR-7 in Black
Don't leave civilization without one. Like the original AR-7, this innovative, semi-automatic model is lightweight (3.5 lbs.) and highly portable. At just 16.5″ long, when all the components are stowed, it easily fits into the cargo area of a plane, boat or in a backpack. It’s chambered in .22 LR so you can carry a large quantity of ammunition without adding much weight to your gear.
MSRP $290

Every November 30th  I prepare my letter to Santa Claus on my outdoor “needs” from catalogs, newspapers, TV  ads and press releases. I carefully look through these and choose those that I definitely need. Now to get the word out I found the best way to inform the family is to tape the list to the refrigerator. One thing that I do not let get in my way of choosing my wanted gifts is the word "need". In all the decades I have been an avid outdoors man I never let that word interfere. Here are several of my most wanted gifts I wanted to share with you. 

I begin "GOOD THINGS COME IN LITTLE PACKAGES" and in this case my rifle choice is the Henry lever action .44 magnum. I want to take this gun to Florida and see how it works on a wild hog. While we are fond of the brass tradition begun by B.T. Henry’s 1860 rifle, we do understand that today’s hunter may prefer something a shade lighter on the mountain, and the 2015 introduction of the Big Boy Steel carries on the same brush gun appeal of the brass-framed Big Boys in its overall configuration, but with upgraded features for the modern hunter, while weighing in 1.68 lbs. less than its shiny cousin.


The 7 lbs. steel Big Boy hangs its 20” round barrel and checkered walnut furniture on a matte-finished blued steel frame that’s drilled & tapped for optional scope mounts, and uses the same adjustable Western-style sights as the standard Big Boy, with the same sliding transfer bar “safety” system in its hammer. Most of the weight savings is due to the steel frame being lighter than a brass counterpart to begin with, and less steel in the thinner barrel walls than an octagon version. www.henryusa.com



  
Big game performance in a package that begs to hit the mountain. A fully adjustable stock and pass-through foregrip accommodate your shooting style to ensure exceptional accuracy and quad limbs fitted with a precision CNC-machined cam system delivers mind-blowing speeds up to 370 FPS. The Sniper is easily maneuverable thanks to the lightweight and durable CNC-machined rail with shoot-through riser and the narrow 18” axle-to-axle width (when cocked; 21” when relaxed). Features a 185 pound draw weight.

Included with the Centerpoint Sniper is a 4x32 mm scope, three 20" carbon bolts, quiver, rope cocker, and shoulder sling.Anti-dry fire and auto-safety trigger mechanisms prevent ill-intentioned shots while integrated string suppressors keep your shots quiet and vibration-free. (crosman.com)
