Like the title says. What was your rifle/shotgun/handgun of choice? What was your load? How did you do?

I bought a Tikka CTR in 308 during the summer and used it the last week of November out in West Texas. Scope is a Leupold Patrol 3-9. Load as a 150 NBT at 2875 FPS.



Good for my first mule deer.




A decent boar.



My first Collard Pecker.



Now that deer season is over I plan setting up my 40 acres in East Texas for hog. I'll put out the feeder next week. Hogs are usually bold in February and March after deer season is over. My dedicated hog rifle is a FNAR 308 with a Super Sniper 1-4X. My property is 75% timber so the hunting is CQH (close quarter hog). This year I'm using the 185 Lapua Mega at 2350 FPS. I doubt my shots will be over 50 yards.

One of last years hogs.

Weapon of choice was a McWhorter 7mm08, 140 Accubond, 2820fps, Leupold VX3 CDS. Killed a nice 140" whitetail buck in the Panhandle, and a 180" TX sandhills mule deer. Shot lots of hogs as well.

I used my old deer gun (ruger m77 ) in .270 to kill a few does and a pig. Works just like it's been doing for the past 20 years.

I used my mark V accumark on a wt doe in October to test it out then out to west Texas where it got a few coyotes and a mule deer at 300 yards

Lots of pigs and yotes with one mature 9pt with a 162gr ELD match running 2688fps. Worked great with no issues.

6.8 with 120 grain SST. Two deer, multiple pigs and coyotes. I've been using this gun and round for two years and I'm really impressed.
