I currently hunt with a DSA SA58C before this I hunted with an M14/M1A. I like the feel of the rifle the control placement and all I need is one shot. Why does it mater weather I pull a bolt back, flip the lever action or put in one round at a time to hunt. Over the years I have hunted with all the above. Most people have at least 4 rounds in the mag and at least a box of extra ammo on their belt or in their backpack anyway. I just carry 1 20 round mag in my gun and 1 in my fanny pack. I still shoot the animal with one well-placed shot. It is currently legal where I live and I have never been questioned by fish and game yet other than can I take a look at it and where to get one.

I also hunt Coyotes with my AR 15 for the same reason control placement and easy of use.

On the larger centerfire rifles they are generally too heavy, especially the military ones, for me to be carrying them up and down mountains. Then again I'm an old man and tire easily. Single shots and bolts require me to take my time and make the shot count. Carry less ammo too.

I think most birds would die from a heart attack from an automatic rifle rather than being hit by a bullet.

When Uncle Sam had my in Wyoming during the mid-80s, I hunted with a M-1A. It was a bit heavy but did the trick.

Oh, you mean a semi-automatic rifle? Well, that's different. Sure, why not? As long as you can shoot it accurately enough and make humane kills, I don't think the animals really care what kinds of guns they are killed with.

Is it just me, or are there some (very few) new members who ask really dumb questions, or make outrageous statements and then go away? I often wonder if they are anti-gunners who are trying to put their ridiculous beliefs on the Internet forums and then use that as a source for some future argument. I know that may sound paranoid, but I can't help it. I have a police trained mind.

The only way that animal is going to die when shooting with an automatic weapon is when they have a heart attack.

For years I lived in a "shotgun only" county. Every opening day it sounded like WWIII. Since muzzleloaders were also legal during the shotgun season I chose my .50 cal CVA Frontier rifle. I won several Turkey Shoot competitions shooting against the majority of shotgunners. I would choose a rifled muzzleloader with one shot over a smoothbore pump shotgun any day. Of course now that I live in rifle county I use my LAR308!
