Headed to the hunting camp tomorrow down east to duck hunt, and likely will also spend some time in the tree stand with the Yugo M24/47 (8mm) with Nikon 2.5x scout scope mounted. I like the challenge of taking deer with the milsurps. With this setup anything that walks in front of me out to 150 yards or so is going down......if I do my part of course. This setup does not permanently alter the rifle. The front sight leaf comes off and I add the S&K Insta-mount scope base for the EER scout scope.
