Got a decent buck one afternoon and a big boar hog the other afternoon. Used my grandfathers old 3006 with a 3-9 Redfield scope. Gun is over 50 years old and would guess scope is too. Still shoots perfectly. Two shots did the trick. Not the biggest 10 but I was happy with him. Our place is just outside of Gatesville on the Leon River. Deer crossed over the river Saturday afternoon and was in full rut or close to it from his smell. [Linked Image]

Also got this nice boar the evening before. Both using this old rifle. They still shoot as good as any new ones despite the age. Scope is old too and you sure can see better with the new ones shut it still works as it should.

High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Congrats on both the fine deer and hog! I use the exact same 30.06 and when I got it from my dad, it had a 3 by 9 Redfield scope on it that I used for years until I won a Leopold in a contest. I think mine is from around 1970 or so.
