    I had 3 boxes of the dual bond and they are recommended and fly great, patterned in 5 shots. A buddy shoots the partition gold 3' slugs by Winchester but they are as difficult to find. I guess I'm down to those 2 rounds. I was able to buy 10 boxes of the partition gold rounds from cheaper than dirt, they didn't have the dual bond rounds. Thanks for the heads up

    Yea, I saw that too and I'd love to take advantage but I can't find any 20ga, 3" slugs anywhere.

    Jon started a thread savage 220 shotgun in Guns & Rifles
    I just picked up a new shotgun for deer hunting. Based on recommendations from many local and non local slug hunters, I got the Savage 220. This is a bolt action, rifled barrel, drop magazine tack driver out to 200+ yards. The problem is finding ammo now since it will only shoot 3" shells. I mounted a 3-9x40 Leupold VXIII and have ordered a Boyds thumbhole stock to replace the synthetic camo stock that came with it. Once I mounted the scope, I used 5 rounds to get the gun sighted in 2" high at 50yds. I ran out of time to get further back but ballistics show these Winchester dual bond slugs to drop 1.7" at 100 if sighted in at 50. These slugs are made of unobtanium obviously because I can't find them anywhere. I ended up finding 3 boxes at a shop in Tx and couldn't find them anywhere else. The Winchester Partition Gold seem to be very similar and I was able to find those a little easier although they aren't cheap. ($16.50/box of 5). I'm excited to have a long distance tack driver slug gun although my H&R Slug Hunter was pretty darn accurate out to 175, it is a single shot and this bolt gun is 3 shots. Anyone else have this 220 gun?

    The skeeters are unreal here as well. I can't even imagine going out without a thermacell. I have backups to backups just so I can hunt. I hope we get a cold snap soon and these bugs go away.

    Get out there boys! I was calm watching these deer for what seemed like an eternity. They fed down a hill toward me and honestly, I didn't think they'd come into range. Once they got into range, I wasn't excited until after the shot and when she flopped once she ran out of fluid. The other deer trotted off but just went back to feeding pretty quickly. can't wait to do it again, next time on a big buck! Good luck guys, start laying them down

    Haha, practicing on a target isn't the same as shooting a live animal. I was very confident and didn't feel like I even missed much BUT once that doe got into place and things went smoothly, I felt better.

    I haven't been able to shoot my bow for 3 years because my eyesight was so horrible, the pins would starburst and I couldn't see the target. I hunted with a crossbow and although it was fun, the kill with a crossbow just isn't as adrenaline filled as a kill with a compound. I had eye surgery back in the spring and now I can see. I started practicing again over the summer and have been really nervous about hunting because I was worried I'd lose the mojo. Went to a new farm last Saturday with the intent of getting a shot at a doe if one presented itself. Well, I saw several deer but a decent doe stood still at 27yds and I picked a spot and let an arrow loose. The sound of the arrow going through the deer was incredible and the blood pouring out while she took her last few leaps was impressive, only wish it was on video! She went less than 30yds and expired right in the beans. What a feeling and it's great to have it back.
