American muscle ........Flexing
« on: January 10, 2016, 09:33:19 PM »
OK than, here's my 1st post in the Hunting section.




............Been hunting this stand for over a month now, a combination of funky winds and porkers only coming in after dark as made for a completely unproductive effort.

I was supposed to ship the FLEX back Monday morning but because of a mix up with shipping labels I found myself with the gun still in my hands this morning, I had a Bowhunt planned today but since I still had the FLEX around I decided it was worth it to take it out for one last spin.

I was in my Tree blind by 12:30,

at 2:15 a very nice boar came in, unusual looking one, very short legs and very stocky, real thick porker this was grey in color and unusual long fur,

I really wanted to take it,


for sometimes it wasn't giving me a good shot, so I calmed down and settled in to wait for the right opportunity, than all of a sudden his nose went up and he took off in a hurry snorting and grunting real mad.

"Here we go" I'm thinking, " my one opportunity of the day gone in the wind" :( :( :(

Than at 4:30 a very nice young boar came in, nice red color with a blond streak running from the jaw all the way under the belly, definitely a shooter.

As he started grinding on corn his head was behind a tree and I was starting ti stress and expect a wind swirl any minute, than he took a couple steps forward and gave me a perfect broadside, I don't think 2 seconds went by before I pulled the trigger  ;D ;D ;D

I fist thought after the shot was, how remarkably quiet this gun is even in the deep woods.

Any news on that skull yet, Manny?  We are all really interested in seeing that shot you put on it.

I have it in my yard, It's totally mangled up,I think porkers munched on it and it's hard to tell the exact placement since the hole got enlarged,

Guess I'll take pictures anyway  ;D

The more I look at the Skull the more I think that the soft JSB .30 cal pellet might have done all that damage.


The Inferior Orbital Fissure is shattered, so this is what I think happened :

The pellet clipped the Orbital fissure possibly deforming quite a bit and was sent on an new upward angle trajectory creating a big hole






Also that theory would explain the missing piece of skull on the opposite side that lines up perfectly with the possible upward trajectory







How is that for CSI Hawaii ?  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Thanks Horatio!

Nice pics and the reasoning is sound.

Therefore I conclude that Manny is the murderer.

Case...closed.

Book him Dano.

Beautiful shot..

Can't wait until I am able to take the ol Flex out for some "Flexing" myself!!
.30 FLEX (I've come to the dark side...)
.177 Diana 54 TO5 aka "King Magnus" - TUNED
.177 Diana 48 TO5 - TUNED
.177 Diana 350 TO5 - SOON TO BE TUNED
.177 Diana 34 TO6 - SOON TO BE TO5, & TUNED

THE ONLY WAY TO IMPROVE IS TRIGGER TIME, TRIGGER TIME, AND MORE TRIGGER TIME
