Variety.....Spice of life?

30-06 and 220 Swift....Anyone else ever carried 2 rifles to the stand? I could'nt make up my mind....High fire-power for hogs or long range for yotes....Ended up a song-dog went down that afternoon.....

I usually leave a 22LR rifle in my stand thru the deer season. If some varmit shows its little head I can pick it off without the big bang of my deer rifle. I see bobcats, yotes, crows, etc alot and it is fun to nail them once in a while.

A few years back, I carried a .30-40 Krag and a 7.62x54R at the same time. ..but not to a stand. I was stalking Antelope.

Yup I do. Sometimes three rifles even. (If you don't count my CCP.) up in my stand w/me.

25-06- /for deer over 75 yards away. 100 gr. Nosler B/Tips @ 3500 fps. Scope doesn't dial down below 4-1/2 power.

32 Special /for deer under 75 yards. 182 gr. Lyman cast. Ol' 94 w/ barrel sights is the Best at it.

22 rifle /w/short for rabbits and partridge quite often seen and to belly bump those ones I don't want hanging around.

I REALLY wanted to take an animal with the Krag, but it was having some issues at the time. Since the Mosin (7.62x54R) also needed to draw blood, I took it as the backup.

It seemed like a good idea at the time....

I've found myself carrying two rifles at the same time to a stand, mine and the Lady's, but not with any intention of using them both.
