Hunting for Survival

Posted by Kurt R Howland on November 19, 2010 at 11:18 AM

Hey All,

 

Downed a 5 point buck with my AR today.  If you doubt the knock down power of the little bullet don’t.  I hit this buck at around 75 yards with a chest shot, it flippedit completely over, and it was finished. 



 

5.56x45 68grain Hollow Point, you don’t want to be on the receiving end. 


Remember hunting season is a great time to hone your survival skills.  You get to work on tracking, silent movement, land navigation, and more.


So get out there and enjoy the outdoors...


Kurt out

Nice buck.
Do you keep the hide?
Easy to prepare & preserve.
Well, I guess it is work, but the rewards are worth it:)
Make good gloves, boots , jacket etc.:)
Use to do that & my kids were always warm:)
We never wasted anything I don't think :)

Don't have time to tan the hide.
