John’s monthly column for the Northwoods Sporting Journal – the largest hunting and fishing paper in the northeast U.S.
The Remington 700 is arguably one of the most prolific hunting rifles ever made. Introduced in 1962, the 700 has made its way into untold numbers of gun safes, climbed countless tree stands and has logged as many miles in the woods as your average skidder in northern Maine. While it is hard to quantify how many whitetail deer have seen the business end of the Remington 700, it is safe to say it is a whole bunch; scientifically speaking.
Shotgunning for snowshoe hare keeps all of my focus this time of year. The flash of white contrasting against the emerald green of spruce and fir thickets gets my heart pumping every time I kick one out. Much the same as grouse hunting in the fall, the surprise of the flush and fast moving game makes for an exciting hunt.
