January 22, 2011 - Best Day with "Shorty" my Custom '71 444s

Hey All -

OK, lesson learned about disposable camera's... Use them for a trip and then get the film developed ASAP... I lost all of the pics I took from my 9 day Bear Hunt in the Jacks Gap area of North Georgia this season...

I did however have deer pics on the camera... Here is the one of "Shorty" my Custom '71 Marlin 444s (18.5" Cut -N- Crown) with Hornady Light Magnum 265 Grain FN's) and the last two does I popped on January 22nd in North Alabama...



I will be picking them up from the processor next weekend...

This is the 2nd doe on my first day of Muzzle Loader Season (11/17) at "Smith Lake" (Yellowcreek Hunting Club in Houston, AL), took her with my CVA Optima Pro Magnum, clean pass through shoulder to shoulder at 100 yards with 150 grains (three pellets) T7 and a 270 Grain Powerbelt Paltinum -

This Butterball Nanny was taken at 150 yards with my Browning 300 Win Mag using Federal Fusion 165 Grainer -



It was a bountiful season for my "Trophy Room" (aka Freezer)... WOO HOO!!!

See you in the woods...

Great pics.... Do you happen to have any better pics of that modified 444? Looks a lot like a 444P cut down like that. Nice!

I recently aquired a Large Loop, not in this pic... I'll take another one soon, toying with a scout mount too, moving away from the Simmons Pro Diamond..

Make your own 444p without the useless porting...

See you in the woods...

I learned my lesson on disposable cameras two years ago. Got two nice 8 points in two days. Pictures were not usable. Like the shortey I will have my .444 cut down now that hunting seasion is over.

1895Gunner, Yea rub it in. I would love a 444P but a .444 in any shape are rare in my area. I have only seen two and I bought one of those. I would like a "P" to go with my ported GG but money and never seeing one at a shop has stoped me. At this time. ::)

What 1895Gunner said. I stumbled across my 444P by dumb luck and had the good sense to buy it. I've never regretted it...not for one second.

I stepped it up a notch last night and won this 450 Ported sweetie on Gun Broker during the Super Bowl while nobody was paying any attention to the auction!
