I have been hunting for over 60 years and it is the hunt I enjoy and the killing is just the culmination of a great experience. For those who enjoy just the killing I suggest you get a job in a slaughterhouse. Respect the animals you hunt and thank them for the substance they provide and then you become a hunter not just someone who gets a thrill out of killing something.

Well I disagree a little, if a person has paid for their license and all of the taxes on their equipment, and is going big game hunting for the enjoyment of it and is hunting legally as well as ethically, why is it anyone else’s business what they feel is fun or necessary? Let the hunters hunt.

Default deer hunting for first time

Point noted Deadman1! I would be lying if I stated that I was not happy about
killing one of my early large muley bucks that was shot thru the heart & a
lung @ close range with my .308! The buck (did not know he was dead) &
charged me with his 3x3 rack, (not counting brow tines) was put-down by a
head shot from 20 feet! And in my past, a whitetail buck & a cow elk were
spine shot due to poor shot placement, (again @ very close range) tried to
get me with their front legs! And yes, I was happy to see the last breath
leave their body with a shot from my sidearm! Hunting is not a (perfect
science) as sometimes you expect a "long shot"...but sometimes the critters
are surprized by how quietly I can move thru the forest! (I have even shot
some of them while they were still bedded down)! I am not bragging about my
hunting ability as I owe my succsess to friends & some family members that
were very good at putting meat on the table! Btw, Pop is still better than I
when poking holes in paper targets... but I have harvested more big game
than he has to date!

Yes, I will get some trigger time. Ranges could be anything between 50 - 400 yds. I'll be using a .308 so from what I've learned of ballistics, the .308 should have enough balls at those ranges to do the trick.
