.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....

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.

      There's a few really good cat spots in that stretch.  It won't be long and it will all be open.
