  5. Tracks by dog - do you let go after a wounded deer?

  12. Mauser M03 - what's the verdict?

    I have one in 30.06 it is wood stock but oil finished not varnish, not seen one varnished TBH. I agree with all of above it is a fantastic rifle if very slightly heavy.

  14. Any tips for 1st time deer stalk.
