Auto's for hunting...
 
How many of you use autos for hunting? And if so, why?

I saw someone in the local hunting grounds. He had an automatic rifle with him? That is just ridiculous to me!

If you mean "semi auto" or "self Loading", then
 
yes, I do hunt with them. If you mean machine guns ( fully "automatic" ), then no, I don't hunt with them.

Oh, I have nothing against hunting with full auto, it just isn't legal in most states. And it's too expensive.

What I have never understood is some nimrod in the woods with a single shot.

:cool:

Just depends on what you like. Like difference between manual and auto transmissions in vehicles.
You can have a second shot ready faster with a semi very fast, if needed.

Ask Jim Zumbo! LOL

It depends on what you mean by auto. I use two of my semi auto rifles for hunting. My Ruger 10/22 is a good rabbit, and squirrel gun. I use a modified AR-15 for coyote hunting. These guns are good when you need a quick folow up shot, and most states restrict the capacity of magazines for hunting. Here where I live we are limited to 5 rounds or less when hunting.

+1 on the AR, although I am not a 10/22 fan, I do use a Marlin Model 60, so same train of thought.
As far as a single shot rifle, most good hunters will make it count! I use bolt guns for large game and have never used a second shot! Jim

The goal should always be to kill with one shot and a patient experienced hunter should need just that, one.
Or did I misunderstand and you were complimenting single shot users. After all Nimrod from the Old Testament was a great and much admired hunter.

I always thought a "nimrod" was like a moron. Never heard of Nimrod in the Bible before, must have missed that story.

Single shot people are fine by me,
 
heck ANYBODY who hunts is my friend. I was trying to make a funny at Zumbo's expense.

Fact of the matter, the second amendment don't say a danged thing about hunting rifles. So ANY rifle is fine with me in the woods. I have a problem with the true nimrods ( truly a derogatory term in my usage this time ) who keep trying to make hunting illegal.

:p

There was a hunting club close to where I used to live called "The Mighty Nimrods". Funny I never knew what it meant untill now.
