Opening morning buck with 1903 Springfield


I got this little 8 point Monday with my 1903. All I did to the rifle was the stock and add a Timney trigger. It was drilled and tapped, and bolt bent, when I bought it.

I also got a doe with it today. I am pleased. These are the first deer I have killed with that rifle. I used Speer hot core 180's.

An '06, a buck, western Pennsylvania- it's tradition, man tu2

I grew up in NE Ohio, but the real deer hunting was in PA.

It's the other way...for now.

Congrats Jason!

Southern Ohio in particular, as I understand it.

Jason, congratulations. A guy just feels good taking a deer with a Springfield.
