Welcome to AR15 Hunter, Tim!

 

Do you have access to hunting property?

 

Btw, I'm moving to Idaho in about a year, so you will have company!

Past few years I've done the public hunting areas. Only a couple that allow for anything other than dove it seems.

Hoping to get a good piece of Idaho (or Alaska) with my own property to hunt or backing up to state land to hunt on.

For now I will keep at it!

New to the forum. Long time shooter and hunter but fairly new to AR's. I work in the Public safety sector. We put the wet stuff on the red stuff.  Looking forward to enjoying the knowledge and learning from the group. I'm all about putting meat in the freezer. Venison,hog, you name it. Also all about protecting the venison that's running around my place via predator control.

Greetings from Big Sky Country.

 

I'm a lifelong shootist and was infected with BRD by cutting my teeth on my father's Colt SP1; which was the first AR I used to fell a deer with around the mid 1990s. At the time, hunting with an AR didn't seem particularly noteworthy as my father had hunted small game, predators, deer and antelope with his SP1 long before I began hunting. (IIRC he got it in the late 60s or early 70s)  

 

My focus on the AR platform has been as a defensive tool, but due to the inherent versatility of the platform I've harvested rabbit, ground & tree squirrels, prairie dogs, Coyote and assorted vermin with an AR15.  As mentioned above, I've also harvested Mule Deer & Whitetail with AR15s though I haven't utilized an AR for big game hunting in about a decade. :huh:

 

I'm amazed at how the firearms community has come to embrace the AR15 as a worthy arm in the hunting arena. My belief is that has a lot to do with the commercial success the AR has enjoyed since around 2008 and the additional chamber offerings. It's been a welcome trend as the AR15 is the Right Arm for America in my opinion.

 

FWIW, my primary AR is my Knight's Armament SR-15 Mod 1. (Or a Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 for sub caliber pursuits)

 

Thanks for the invite Will. ;)

WMD! 

Glad to see you join. 

 

I'm a little jealous of the Stoner Rifle. I hope to add one to my arsenal at some point, along with a LaRue :)

Another hello from Big SKy Country! I have a serious case of BRD. I love building them, loading for them, training with them, and shooting them!  I got a late start in hunting, but have been after it for a few years now. Took my first whitetail does a couple years ago with my Father's R700 .243 that was handed down to me. Then I found a buddy that was very in to the AR platform, and a couple years later I have 4 rifles in 3 calibers. Last year I took my 18" 6.8SPC Antelope hunting but was not given a shot within the range I felt comfortable with.(used my .30-06 the next day) I plan on using it again this year for Antelope and whitetail hunting. Yesterday I broke in my .277 Wolverine with 100 rounds of 90 Gr SPeer Gold Dot hand loads, and it look very promising for sure. I also have a .223 Wylde that shoot .550 moa groups with my 69 SMK handloads as well. (shown below) I use ar15performance (or ARP) barrels exclusively for my own personal builds and build for friends as well. Our state legislature finally passed big game suppressor hunting into law up here in MT, so I am getting as much experience behind my YHM Phantom-Ti as I can. Here's a shot of some early spring gopher hunting in the Big Hole area of Montana. we destroyed them that day. Nine active shooters who only stopped shooting to reload or take a break!

Love all the reviews I have read/watched on the website, so I thought I would come along for the ride!

We look forward to your posts. Good luck with the Antelope and Whitetail this year. I'm planning on taking my .277 Wolverine out this year for Whitetail.

My name is Jason.  Born in Texas, but currently living in KY.  Found the site after looking into the Franklin Armory 17WSM.  I have to admit that I got an error the first time I tried to register.

Hello Everyone,

My name is Brian Kinney, and I am very glad to have found this site and hope to see it grow and promote all things AR related.
I've been hunting since I was 10 with all manner of rifles and shotguns from single shot to semi-auto's.

I recently got into AR's after shooting a couple owned by friends and admiring how fantastic a platform this is for hunting due to its accuracy, ergonomics and inherent all-weather durability.

As a coyote hunter in Michigan, we are stuck with rim fires only for our nighttime hunts, so I am very interested now in assembling a rifle using a Franklin Armory F17 v4 upper. Problem is not a lot of info out there regarding set ups, only complete rifles. So if any of you have one, help a brother out and post up info!

Thanks and happy hunting!
