    Adventures, aren't they great. Good job on the bear.
    80000 chickens aren't you glad you didn't have to stamp them all.
    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.
    The worst day slinging lead is still better than the best day working.
    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because that’s the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    Good work & thanks for sharing the story & photos.

    On deer hunting-the younger-the better the taste. Also in general doe tastes better than buck.
    Best time to hunt is at daybreak or late afternoon. Hunt close to a water source & sunny side. After harvesting keep your rifle close by & ready for protection especially if you must come the next day to retrieve it. Also circle your game with flagging & be extra careful when coming back. Never let your guard down when in bear country.

    The 308 is a great deer rifle.
    My regular hunting partner(LOVER308 ) since '67 has been using the 308 WIN for 54 years & has never had a problem. Many deer, moose & some elk & bear had fallen to the 308.

    I bought the jerky package from Cabelas, sweet and hot flavours. Then follow the recipe, using a smoker. Basically, 1/8 inch thick, 170F for 3 hours
