I going to use my Ruger Hawkeye 6.8 SPC suppressed this year for deer/hogs. I have 110 Accubonds loaded to 2690 fps from a 16" barrel.

I have an oryx hunt booked with Muley Mike in December. I think I'm going to use my 308 CTR suppressed with 150 Nosler Partitions.

Gonna mainly use my Mathews Halon 32.

When I go down south I’ll use a Weatherby Accumark in .257 wby mag


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

Overkill is better than underkill. It will probably destroy less meat than other "deer" set ups. I think you'll get an exit.

There are places for folks like you too, since you brought that up.

It's apparent you've never been a bow hunter Buzz.

You are truly missing out. Bowhunting requires different skill sets than the average rifle hunter from the city will ever understand.

Seen it plenty.

it is a special run from the 80's Winchester feather weight / long action / 257 Roberts / shooting 95 grain game kings @ 2950

There once were 3 Amigos & we have consecutive SN# 257 Roberts from that run of Long Action Bobs.

Staying with the Marlins this year. 45 Colt or 35 Remington, whichever I grab walking out the back door. She’s finally accepted the hutch by the back door is actually a gun cabinet. banana2 If I do any hunting out west this year i will take something else.
