Default Got one with the Mosin Nagant

Well, right now is a antlerless deer hunt in herd control areas of Wisconsin. I've been hunting afternoons since Thursday and all I've seen was 2 bucks, until tonight. I got into the stand at about 4:30 tonight and it was pretty slow. I was expecting it to be another night of watching squirrels. At a little before 6:00 I peered over my back to see a doe walking between the woods and a cornfield about 50 yards behind me. I raised my rifle and waited for her to come into a small clearing I cut. When she came into the opening I clicked off the safety and let her have it, only to miss. She ran into woods towards me (as they usually do when I shoot at a deer on the edge of that cornfield) She stopped behind some brush for a minute or so then began running right at me. She slowed down at about 35 yards and this time I made sure I hit. I shot and she dropped in her tracks. The fun part began as I had to drag her up a hill about 150-200 yards to my fourwheeler by myself.. Exciting hunt nonetheless! The hole you see in the picture is the exit hole, the bullet entered high right shoulder.

Nice job buddy. I've never seen that kind of rifle/scope before but it has done the job well.

That's why I like using it. I really wanted to take one with my Great Uncles (whom has passed away about 10 years ago) Winchester 94 30-30. I took it out Thursday and Friday and since I didn't even see a doe I figured bringing this rifle may change my luck, and it did..lol

What kind of scope is that? And how did you mount it? Have a Mosin-Nagant at home with original 'woodwork' stock and open sites - not that it hasn't stopped me from bagging a deer or two with it.

Which model and year do you have? Mine is a 1943. To mount it the way I did it has to be a 91/30. There is a 3/8" dovetail under the rear sight, which is the same as whats on .22's and airguns. I removed the rear sight and put on the 1 piece mount. The scope is a Simmons Prohunter 4x32mm handgun scope. Since this picture was taken I have filed out a small notch on both sides of the mount so I can slide the front pin from the rear sight in it so there is no way the mount can slide forward. I have the rear sight pin installed behind the mount so it cannot slide rearwards.

Here's the mount - Leapers Accushot 1-Pc Mount w/1" Rings, 3/8" Dovetail. SCOPE MOUNTS.

Since you have the original stock with the top handguard you would want this mount - Leapers Accushot 1-Pc Bi-directional Offset Mount w/1" Rings, High, 11mm Dovetail. SCOPE MOUNTS.

"Which model and year do you have? Mine is a 1943."

I'm not at home as I type this, but I think it's a 91/30 manufactured in 1936.

Will definitely have to look into something like this when getting back home. Hate missing opening weekend and this is two years in a row that the boss has put me on the road this time of year. Will just have to sit the boss down and tell him what the priorities are between November and January.

congrats. I sold my 308 about 2 years ago because i hadn't been hunting but decided i'd go out this year. Picked myself up a mosin nagant for $100 and i'm hoping to have some similar luck. good to know other people have done it though.
