I was really surprised at the length of time that it took for someone to reply to an earlier post. When I come back 4 hours later,there had been only one posted reply on this whole site. I'm surprised at this. If I go away from some other sites and come back in one hour,there are lots of new posts and replies. I'll keep checking on ya'll time to time.

Guest ,
Hey thanks for answering. I hope I didn't step on too many toes. I noticed at the bottom of this site that the number of site users isn't that high. I reckon I'm not used to it just yet. I'll continue to this moniter site for info and hopefully have some info to help others.

Ya'll be good and I'll see ya later!

Hey Huntswithdogs,
We're very glad you stopped by. It's a relatively new site that is a sister site to Shotgunworld.com. Keep coming back, because we'll just keep getting better.

Jay,

Thanks for the big HOWDY!!! You've got some pretty cool stuff on this site. I liked the way you set up the hunting site. When looking at shotgunworld it seems that everybody bird hunts. It's nice to see a site that reflects my style of hunting. As of now it doesn't include birds but one never knows what's around the corner.

Hello huntswithdogs,I am from the south where I hunted with dogs off from 1961 to 1995 off and on till I moved to Montana,I moved here to get my kids through college and got injured,and am waiting to get back to Montana.But I have fond memorys of hunting with dogs,I was healthy then and loved to walk with the dogs.We had walkers mostly,friends had blue ticks.I love the chase and am looking forward to dog hunting storys.I am disabled and feel I post too much,so I wait some times for days or weeks to post,keep coming back and you can count on ole Drop-Shot to listen and reply,count on it.Drop-Shot

DANG DP! You never said you was from the south.I am origonally from S.C. (near Charleston) . I started hunting when I was 6 or 7 with my granddad and dad hunting deer with dogs until I left for the Air Force at the age of 21.Man fore the days of listening to them hounds in a good chase . That brings back some good memories. Dad quit hunting so I went with granddad until his death.

I have fond memorys with walking with the dogs,I was healthy then and walked for miles behind the dogs and killed my share of white tails sneaking behind the dog pack.We could take 5 deer per year in Mississippi when I was younger,and when the game wardens issued doe tags we would donate to several places.A reform school,old folks home(abandoned old folks),church,and salvation army,as well as friends that were to old or sick to hunt.Though I call Montana home I was born and raised in the deep south.Asbestosis in my lungs caused me to look for a place where breathing is easier.That thick moist air down south was to hard to breathe.It's better here but even better in Montana.Drop-Shot

Once you get it you can never get rid of it.I got it from being a mechanic for 33 years,brake dust and clutches,automatic and manual.I stop to breathe more than other folks but as long as I don't over do it I get by ok.Tomarrow I see the doctors and see if I have to have this operation or not,mabe more tests,mylogram and discograms were talked about.I will be in Montana in the spring with or without the operation.Drop-Shot

I hunt with dogs, myself, and have found no more satisfying way to use up a day of my life. :D

I've been a bit busy and didn't notice your post earlier.

WELCOME from a fellow hunter! :!: :D

Huntswithdogs,
This is a new site and I am new to the site as well. Marlands turned me onto the site and I like it. It is just going to take a little time before it takes off and more folks starrt posting more often. As you said, not too many registered right now.

I would listen to the post from the guest, you are more than welcome to hang out as much as ya like. We need as many folks checking out the site as we can get.

So from Levergun....How the he!! are ya and welcome! :wink:

I shot a lever gun just this weekend. One of my "kids" has his grandaddy's old Model 99 Savage. It's a 308 with a steel butt plate. Recoil while not a lot ,isn't very comfortable. Being from over in the Va mountains, I've shot a number of lever guns ranging from 22 up to 45-70. I told the guy who owned that 45-70 that I'd shot it my first and last time,with one shot. He had handloaded some elephant loads in that marlin that were unreal! About a month after I shot it,I found out he'd sold it. Seems that he has this little cresent scar over his left eye now. He told me that it 10 stitches to put it back together and he still has head aches! The 30-30 and 35 are still used down here a lot,so I get to shoot someone's every now and again at the range.

Thanks for the welcome guys!

I'd like to see that great old 35 Rem come back a bit. It does what a 30-30 will do, but just a bit better IMHO...

I can't think of a better black bear gun than a Marlin 336 in 35 Rem. 8)
