Bloody the Tikka 3 Lite


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I just did a tally on the deer I have killed in this one small area of a small 17 acre wood lot. It came to 5. 3 with the bow, one with the 44 Marlin Lever and now one with the new Tikka.

I had just got settled in the API Grand lock on, probably the most comfortable lock on made, that overlooked the creek bottom and provided good coverage of the bench and ridge. Sign has been hard to see because of the dry conditions but the change in temps had to have the bucks moving and this morning this little rascal was. He slipped in right behind me and I saw him the first time when he came out from behind the left side of the tree. When deer are this close, they always seem to know they have made an error. I never look at them. Eye contact is a no-no at 10ft. As usual he had me pegged but I knew if he did not catch my scent I would be OK. Because of the leaffy wear and no movement he was satisfied but not happy as he tried to find a line around me but not wanting to run like a spotted- #$% ape, like he knew he should.(They get a little cocky in the rut.) He revealed a shot after going behind a screen of Dogwood leaves and I dropped him on the spot with a neck shot at less than 20 yds. He never raised his head but kept moving something and I was not going to trail this deer. I placed another in the neck.

Got my son to help me drag him out and perform the required work to change this game to the delectable food God meant it to be.

Good bowhuntig experience works real well when you're rifle hunting. Deer are completely different at 10 ft!!
Way to go.

Hey Shawn. The Tikka is in 06. I was thinking of getting the .308, which I load for already, but they had the 06 and I load for it also so it did not matter. I can't wait to get back out there with it. Maybe next week.

Nice work Chief. I finally bloodied my T3 as well. Last weekend was the WI gun hunting opener. On opening morning I got 2 bucks. My first gun buck since 81! Talk about a long dry spell. I was ready to turn the gun on myself. Anyhow, a 6 pointer stepped out into a clearing just as I did. About 50 yards away. I shot it and it went about 30 yards. Seconds later another deer stepped out and I took it as well since I had an antlerless tag. Unfortunately it was a nubbin buck. Anyway, nice work Chief and good luck in the following weekends.
