New critta gitta zero'd in

1 post in this topic

Okay, it has been a couple weeks since I shot these targets, thought I had thrown them but I did find them this morning.

a little explaining first: I shot 100 rounds through it breaking it in, cleaning it, etc. I tried 6 different types of ammo from 4 different manufacturers

My target numbering is as follows:

1-Center Target

2-top right target

3-bottom right

4-bottom left

5-top left

6-aiming for the upc symbol, there was a split in the code about 2/3rds of the way from left to right, I aimed for the "big" white stripe

First round:

1-Federal spitfire 17gr. Vmax

2-Winchester 17 gr. vmax

3-CCI 17 gr. Speer TNT HP

4-Federal Game Pt. 17gr HP

5-Hornady 17gr. Vmax

6-Hornady 20gr. XTP HP

Second target: barreled cleaned and cooled

1-Horn. 20 gr. xtp

2-Horn. 17 gr. vmax

3-CCI Speer TNT 17 gr

4-Winchester 17gr. vmax

5-Federal Game pt. 17gr. hp

6-Federal Spitfire vmax

Ignore the 30-30 rounds from my buddy, he was being funny.

all shots were from bags and at 50 yards (farthest option we had) When I get a new scope, I will try to get the 20gr. XTP's settled in, but for now, the spitfires and 17gr. Hornady's are definately going to be used for critta's

this is the critta gitta: Savage Model 93b 17HMR with accutrigger

      Split ring pliers  .... get them at Wal-Mart in the fishing section by filet knives.  makes it super simple!!   Was using them on small spoon taking off treble hooks for single hooks so I could throw a 2" Gulp minnow on it.   Makes it very easy   Bob

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
