Be serious. You're condoning an irresponsible act just because of semantics. This is a hunting forum, not a "hey, look at the stupid Sh!t I can do! forum."
I can hunt w/ my 10mm, but choose not to because of all the factors involved in a clean kill.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Worked at a camp upstate NY. This sucker was a pita. Caught him in the open and there was a pile of Bamboo rods about 8' long.

This is all wonderful points of interest, I do bow hunt as well and have been for 30 years and have yet to shoot an animal with my bow and it drop dead in its tracks, I have also, never seen or heard of anyone doing so. So does that advocate banning bow hunting?

Youre deflecting now.

Bow hunting is a different story. For the Sake of brevity, ill assume you're using good broadheads and a mans bow. Not a target tip on a 25# bow. See what I did there? Direct correlation to the 40 use.

Wow that was a predictable response. Anyway I am done with the subject.

Happy hunting to all no matter what you use to hunt with.

Lol, the guy was in a blind and killed it with a firearm. Whether it be a handgun or rifle it's all hunting. I would understand all your b**chassness if the guy just started to unload with no rhyme or reason..but one shot one kill. .40 cal is a very capable round to kill an animal..so let's bring on the wahhhmbulance cause all I hear is crying.
