    I stalked this bedded buck in the rough country of Black Hills Nat'l Forest, South Dakota. It took almost an hour to close the distance from "way out there" to approx. 125 yards. At the shot the buck bounded away but toppled after a couple jumps. My bullet had done its job to the chest organs. The body was so big that I couldn't drag it. So I sawed it in half at the last ribs and made two trips back to where I'd parked my Ford Explorer.

    My friends encouraged me to take a bigger rifle for my Dakota adventure. But I could not be persuaded to leave my faithful meat-maker at home. Some hunters see the 30-30 cartridge as a handicap while others are challenged to hunt harder. My Glenfield carbine 30-30 with Simmons 2-7X scope is a keeper!

    Very nice job TR Did this buck move from his original bedded location while you managed to close the gap between you, or did you manage your move while it stayed put? Did you use a cross wind while doing this... with brush, knolls, and belly crawl etc.? What time of day was it? That sounds like a very fine Glenfield job especially being in wide open unfamiliar reserve land. Long live the .30-30
