Well I saw the first deer of the year. I could hear running behind me and I didn't turn figuring they would come right by me. Here come 7 doe and stop 35 yards in front of me. I put the cross hairs on one and squeeze and nothing. Pull the hammer back again and squeeze and nothing. I chamber another round and they move another 30 yards away. I pull the trigger and nothing again. Taking the old 30-30 to the gunsmith tomorrow. I stayed in the stand another 30 minutes and saw a buck running but it never stopped and I'm glad I couldn't tell if it was legal or get a shot because the gun likely wouldn't go boom. I'll try again tomorrow with the 308 or 243.
