Deer Hunting Opportunity

Ocmulgee Banks offers a great deer hunting opportunity.

Ocmulgee Banks is a conservation Community in middle Georgia. They have five acre tracts of property for sale with deeded access to more than 2400 acres of prime deer hunting opportunity for big bucks. Most of which is protected from future development through a conservative easement. The fact that it is protected from future development is just an awesome guarantee, to be able to hunt for generations to come, on prime whitetail habitat. The first time I heard about this place I absolutely fell in love with it. I guarantee you if I had the money I would buy one of these five acre tracts in a heartbeat. To be able to buy a five acre tract and build a house in a intensely managed prime deer hunting habitat for big bucks on 2400 acres of protected property from future development, that would be a dream come true for me. I would to raise my two boys on a place like this. Words can’t even describe how much I would love to be able to afford a place at Ocmulgee Banks. I wanted to highlight a few things that make Ocmulgee Banks so neat. Then I will give a link for you to get a better look on the Internet.

Double Drop Tine Buck

Double Drop Tine Buck Video

If you enjoy deer hunting big bucks, I’ll bet you will like this video I found of a double drop tine buck. I was looking at videos on YouTube and I just couldn’t figure out  something, how in the world did they film these big bucks at night without disturbing them? It says that the video was taken with a very high magnification camcorder,but what about the lighting? This is an awesome double drop tine buck. I bet Mike Hanback would like this one. Have you ever seen a drop tine buck when you were deer hunting? I’ve seen some big bucks, but I have never seen a drop tine buck while deer hunting. I would love to see a buck of this caliber out in the wild, I probably would be shaking so bad I might not be able to pull it off, but I sure would like to try.

I wanted to remind everyone to get your soil samples for your food plots, and plant some trees. Also now is the time to burn your property. Just make sure to check your laws and regulations before you do. Also now is a great time to start looking for those sheds. Those trophies should start dropping those antlers soon. Just a few reminders.

I talked to a friend of mine who has eighty acres in Arizona and I am going to mail him a trail camera to put on his land and see what we can get on camera. And I will put them on here for you to enjoy. He says there are some really nice mule deer on the property. Also they have mountain lions. As a matter of fact, some of you may have heard about a huge mountain lion that was hit by a car in Arizona. It was hit about ten miles from where my friend lives.

Clean Deer Rifle

A clean deer rifle is a safe one.

It is always good to have a clean deer rifle. And now is a good time to make sure you have a clean deer rifle. I know one year I came home from the last weekend of hunting and I unloaded my Chevrolet pickup and put my gear in the storage room in the basement and never even cleaned my gun. It was almost summer before I cleaned it and it had a little rust. I want my clean deer rifle to be in tip top shape next year when I get after those big bucks.

Walmart has gun cleaning kits at reasonable prices. Just make sure you get the right caliber kit for your gun. They sell a universal kit that works with different calibers. Just make sure you get the correct tips for your caliber.

Clean Deer Rifle Tips

The first thing I do before cleaning my gun is lay out some news papers. It can get messy. I make sure I have some soft clean cotton rags, that I don’t mind getting dirty.The first thing is safety. Always treat a gun as if it is loaded. I don’t care if you know for a fact that you unloaded it the last time you used it. Treat it as if it’s loaded. Always point the muzzle in a safe direction, never at anyone. I know most of you know this, but I can’t preach gun safety enough. Please keep all your guns locked away from children. Use safety locks also.I always take the sling off, and remove the bolt. If you have a bolt action. Most of them are pretty simple. If you don’t know how refer to your owners manual. If you don’t have your manual you can look online if you have internet access. Once you have the bolt out, put the three pieces of the push rod together and put your wire brush on. Saturate the brush with solvent and coat the rod with solvent. Push the rod all the way through the breech end first then when you get the brush out of the other end pull it back through. Do this about ten times. Try not to let the rod touch the bore. Keep it as straight as possible. Take the brush off and attach the cleaning tip. Put a patch on and saturate it with solvent. And push it through and back. Then take off that patch and repeat until you get a clean patch. Then run a clean patch through the bore to remove the solvent. Then clean the gun action or bolt with a rag or patches and solvent. Then wipe dry. I use Q-tips to get those hard to reach spots. Then put gun oil on a rag and wipe down the gun and put a clean patch on and put gun oil on it and run it through the bore. Then wipe down any excess oil. Apply gun oil to all moving parts. And wipe any excess off. And then oil the swivels and where they attach to your gun. They will squeak if you don’t. And oiling them makes them easier to open and close.

Now next season when you get after those big bucks your gun will be ready. All you will have to do is sight it in. I like to clean mine after sighting it in as well. When I was in the United States Army(God Bless our Troops) Cleaning our M-16 was just about the most important thing we did. Having a weapon jam when you need it the most is not something you want to happen. So get those rifles clean boys and girls. Next season will be here before you know it.Now is a good time to make sure you have a clean deer rifle. I know one year I came home from the last weekend of hunting and I unloaded my Chevrolet pickup and put my gear in the storage room in the basement and never even cleaned my gun. It was almost summer before I cleaned it and it had a little rust.
