Pulled the pin on one.

Finally got her in and shes a beauty (Black), now all I need to do is learn its attitude. Model 12 LRP in .243 with a Zeiss 4.5x14 Conquest scope.

Can't wait to fire it

Walleyerod I have killed many deer and antelope with my 22.250. I reload 60 grain soft point boat tails and take time to make sure of shot placement. Never had one go more than a few yards.

I've even had some guys shoot in a direction that would have seriously hurt my ears but I hardly knew they even shot.

They are expensive but worth it. I bought the game ear and had a custom ear piece made for each ear. I think I'm into them for around $500 ($250/ear). You won't regret them if you get back into it.
I will for sure have to have something to keep from losing more hearing. I have seen hearing protector headsets (ear muff type) with microphones in them that will shut off with higher decibels and still allow me to wear my above ear hearing aid so I can hear someone talk. Hearing what is going on around me doesn't happen anymore because when you only have one good ear you lose directional hearing.

Half of the fun of goose hunting was hearing them before I could see them.

Switched over to hardcore fishing and to be honest it's been a great transition.

I stopped hunting about six years ago due to my eyesight. I have had cataract surgery on both eyes and could hunt again, but my hunting ground has been flooded for the last three or four years. I also have to be very careful since I have only one ear that works and don't like the idea of not being able to hear well while hunting. I used to enjoy being able to hear them walking through the dry grass and leaves. Maybe it's time to hang it up.

I can respect your opinion but the qoute you gave sounds like BS to me. A deer at a full run at 500yds? If they made that shot it was very unethical and pure luck.

I don't know anyone who saves the heart and liver anymore but I'm sure some people do but for those of us who don't but love our sausage and hot sticks there is a lot of meat in the neck to cut out. A clean shot through the lungs will waste and the most 1lb. of rib meat that most people don't even bother with.
You wouldn't find me shooting at anything running at 500 yds. I have passed on a 500 yd shot on a Bull Elk while using my 270. Too much chance of not putting it down. My buddy was on my case the rest of the day because I passed on that shot.
