New to forum. I mostly hunt with a Marlin 336C in .35 Remington topped with a Bushnell Legend 2x7 scope. I hunt in NH where it is fairly thick so I need a brushbuster type of bullet. It isn't the fastest or flattest caliber choice but it sure knocks down what it hits out to 125 yards. Need to try the LeverEvolution bullets. Also have a Ruger M77 .30-06 but don't have much use for it where I live.

hey rozman you should definitly try those leverlution bullets there great.i shoot them out of my 30/30 and they are way better then remingtons

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Thanks buckfever,critter gitter. I personally use forums to share hunting ideas,experiences etc. to become a better student within the "Spirit of the Wild".
No room for smack talk in forums.

Hunting has become my life the last 25 years. Hunting in NH can be very difficult. Years ago I had seasons of seeing only 2-3 deer. This can wear on you and it's these times that you start to question yourself. It took me a few years but I realized it's not about getting a deer every year, it's about being outside unplugged from the everyday stress of society. This is the best medicine for the soul and defines the term "Spirit of the Wild". Getting a deer is just the bonus of the experience. Cavemen had to hunt to live but in my case I live to hunt.

well said roz. i remember the first time i went hunting with my uncle for several days. i only saw 1 deer on my last day and really enjoyed just being outside. back then sitting in a stand till 10am hardly ever happened. now if i get out of the tree before 2 in the afternoon i feel like im cheating myself. my wife used to ask me how i could sit in a stand that long without every seeing anything but actually time goes quick for me. i just enjoy enjoying the outdoors.
