.30 cal AR-15 in the woods

4 posts in this topic

I have a stand where a guy can only shoot about 50 yards. I thought it might be fun to use my AR-15 chambered in 7.62X39 this year.

The ballistics are similar to a 30-30 so it's not like it won't do the job, but my question is, how much grief will I get from people (or COs)who have no idea that a "black rifle" can be chambered in many things other than .223?

I would assume as long as the round is within legal limits to hunt...no one should give ya a hard time. I will be honest, I would probably do a double take seeing someone exit the woods during deer season holding a gun that has been traditionally chambered for .223. As long as you can show its chambered for a legal round....enjoy yourself.

Anyone who is familiar with the AR would know that there is getting to be more and more larger calibers available for them. I wouldn't think twice about using it....

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
