Hello from Virginia

Not really a “new” member, but never introduced myself. Not a Blaser owner, but have a Sauer 200 lightweight, and a Sauer drilling (16/16/8x57JR) in the collection. Left handed shooter, so that lowers the temptation of European rifles considerably. Despite my love for rifles, most of my local deer hunting is done with a crossbow due to urban sprawl.

Thanks for introducing yourself to us. Do you have the opportunity to hunt with a shotgun or archery only? I live in an urban hunt unit in Arizona which is limited to archery, rimfire, or shotgun firing shot only. I also have silencers to reduce complaints of nearby residences but am required to keep 1/4 mile away from an occupied building even with the bow.

Welcome! Having been originally from SE Pennsylvania, I know all too well about the sprawl and being limited to archery only deer hunting methodology! And if I were to advise on a south paw shootin tool, I’d suggest a lefty K95!

Sorry for the late reply! Saw the responses by accident. The county I live in has no firearms hunting at all - discharge of a firearm is illegal. I just joined a club last year that has some leased property a few hours away where I can use my “thunder sticks”. Such is life in our “modern” world
