    Spaher, you've been having too much fun!

    I've done some fun 100-yard shooting with my P94 using standard velocity ammunition for lower report. A couple of years ago we had a fabulous quail crop where I hunt deer. Large coveys would gather underneath a corn deer feeder which was about 110 yards from the blind. Taking quail with a rifle is legal in Texas, so I took the P94 with me to the blind. It only took a couple of shots to get the range on the feeder. The quail paid virtually no attention when one of their compatriots hit the dirt from the impact of a little 40 grain lead slug traveling (at that range) probably only about 800 fps. I picked out mostly the roosters, leaving a good number of egg-laying hens behind to promulgate the next generation, and easily potted my limit of these tasty little mini-chickens during the mid-afternoon before time for the deer to come in closer to dark.

    Getting this Mannlicher tuned in as 7-8 weeks left for mature buck to get out of velvet and field prospect reports appear promising due to timely rains. Regrettably ammo choices are slim at the moment.

    Oh Yum!
    A delicious story indeed!
    There can be no finer meal on this earth, than the elemental gifts of nature, fire and flesh. The satisfaction and savory bliss of fresh venison, which only hours before, a beast that would have much rather eluded once more, the hunter who now enjoys it.
    Every year, It rises inside us, that irresistible desire to get out there. Enduring the cold, the rain, the snow..mostly with a smile. Just to be there..to be able to experience something more, or something again.
    These four photos speak volumes for Sako’s in the field!
    Thanks Deersako!

    I have to ask what is in the dish with the lid? I zoomed in on it but I can’t make it out. Plus it makes me hungry if I stare too long

    I believe it is jam of some sort. Reminds me of the GIECO Gecko in many ways.

    Lol!
    I thought it was maybe a reduction of elderberry or gooseberry. Could be black olives or extra large curd caviar! What ever it is … I bet it’s tasty!

    Looks like delicious blackberries, although some hate them as they have taken over chocking out native plants

    You got that right Daddy-o!
    With hope .. I’ll be sitting at camp with my son , and some fresh backstrap , stirring up a cooker full of this yummy stuff in about 41-42 days!
    I suppose I wouldn’t have wait that long for the Chilli Jam, but the backstrap will have to wait…
