I just checked the Barry Oh list of future legal Elk Hunting weapons.

1) Buck Knife with a blade of less than 4"

2) 22 Cal Single Shot with a barrel over 21"

3) Lasso no longer than 16.5'

Think about all the 18' Lasso folks that will have to turn in their ropes!

I agree with Dave Petzel from Field and Stream: Resist the lure of the tough kicking magnum calibers - the ammo is expensive, you will develop a flinch and the animal will be no deader shot with a .30 Thunderboomer than with a 30-06.

some of us actually like shooting Magnums! some of reload and use slower powders that reduce felt recoil while still maintaining velocity and energy. my 7mm Rem. Mag in a Remington M700 SPS, is one i can shoot well over 80 rounds in a day and not have a sore shoulder. key here is reloading and using the right powder.
