Almost got a doe tonight, caught it in the hip with a 20.05. That?s a really slow heavy round. Marketed by Honda under the trade name Odyssey. Luckily it was a glancing blow and only cracked the bumper fascia on the passenger side. Crappy part is, I️ was only 100 yards from my driveway when it happened. Almost made it home without issue.  :facepalm:

Ouch, don't wash it until the insurance adjuster looks at it, that is if you are covered for a deer hit....

Shoot, i have a gravel driveway, i wasn?t planning to wash it for A few more years. Didn?t really even think of getting the insurance involved, it would be covered, just not sure it would be worth it.

How fast were you going to do damage just 100yds from home? At least you didn't run off the road trying to avoid it.

Bumper on a Honda? Probably 600-800 at the body shop... might be worth checking out.

Son and I headed out this morning and he bagged a nice two point black tail buck. An hour or so drive and walk in hunting behind a locked gate. About the only timber company left in the state that doesn't charge to hunt on their land.

I've replaced the one on my wifes 2005.  Check out ebay.  Here is one painted and shipped for cheap.  Its super easy to remove and install.  IIRC two screws in the wheel well and several push clips under the hood along the core support and underneath where the encapsulation panel meets up.

Thanks for the link/pointer on the bumper, never thought to look at eBay for a prepainted part before. I?ll let you know how it works out.    :likebutton:

Ken, you're going to need thermal or nvg and a suppressor by the sounds of that.

Good luck that the big guy steps out for ya.

Ken, now I see why you have to shoot soo far. No stalking while staying behind cover  for sure.

Well. About 120 miles of nasty nasty trail. Found me some food.

Seen a few hundred through the course of the day. The antlers on his guy had my attention for a few hundred yards through the bush. Taken at just under 300, about two steps after he cleared the trail. Double lunger, and no front shoulders this year. No extra burger!

Congrats Sam! I?ve heard caribou is really good. Quick question. What is the black stuff on the end of your barrel? I?m assuming it?s to keep crud and moisture out?

Yes caribou is good. I prefer it over moose, but not over elk.

You're exactly right in the black stuff.

It's just electrical tape.
A single cover over the muzzle to keep snow dust out.
Multiple wraps to have spare tape for after the shot.
One layer has yet to move the first shot off its mark.

I have used masking tape for that, I always thought the pressure did away with the tape before the bullet ever got to the end of the barrel. Like you say accuracy never suffered from using it for whatever reason.
