    WTS Bob Dustrude Folding Buck Saw 24"

    Excellent condition, very little use hence why I'm selling it. I still think it is the best option out there for a packable bucksaw, I just don't need a saw this big very often. I sanded the handle a bit to make it smoother (the assembly instructions printed/stamped on the handle are a bit faded...

    "Anchoring" Shots

    Sounds like there are more than a few people who use the shoulder shot with good success. The next potential issue I see with it is its effect on meat quality. Correct me if I'm wrong here but from what I understand, a big part of meat quality is ensuring that there isn't too much blood in it...

    "Anchoring" Shots

    I would be willing to accept some meat damage if it increased the chances of a quick, ethical kill significantly. I suppose a more specific question that Ron C. more or less answered is "how reliable are shoulder shots in putting an animal down quickly with minimal movement from the site of the...

    "Anchoring" Shots

    200 yards (nearest tree was ranged at 212), broadside/slightly quartering away. Shot with a 6.5 Creedmoor 130 gr. Barnes TSX. Here's a pic of the largest spot of blood I found, within 10 yards of where the deer was standing when shot. I'm pretty sure my shot was a little bit high, maybe halfway...
