Marlin Papoose .22 Survival Rifle @ 50 Yards on Deer Target- full review coming soon

RMB NOTE- In case someone might think I am some kind of cruel deer murderer for posting this, please note that this is the most humane and efficient way to hunt a deer with a .22 rifle in a wilderness survival situation.

A .22 rifle does not have sufficient power to kill a deer humanely or quickly by shooting it in the vitals the way most hunters would do with a high-powered rifle. A .22 does however have enough power to completely penetrate a deer's skull. This is why you would take head shots at a deer with a .22 if you are faced with a survival situation. 

Remember, "survival should never be political" as I always like to say.

Survival is never pretty. What's most important is that you come out alive.

Re: Update, Gear Testing, Fishing, etc

Hey friends! Hope all is well. I was out scouting some new places to test gear over the weekend, and decided to stop and do a little bit of fishing. Found a high mountain lake in the Gunnison National Forest that was well stocked with Rainbow Trout, and gave it a whirl using my favorite lure. Ended up catching 5 Rainbows in less than 2 hours. Fun!

On the way in, I saw a wild turkey cross the road and was able to snap a few photos which you can see below.

On the way out, I ran into a few Pronghorn Antelopes that were grazing on the side of the road. Pronghorns are very interesting animals. They are capable of running up to 55 mph, making them the second fastest mammal on earth. Only the Cheetah can faster. 

Overall, the trip was great, and I was able to find some beautiful new locations for finishing my gear testing this year. Look for lots of new content soon, and as always, Leah and I greatly appreciate all of your support.

Take care,
