Am looking for a big gun so I can take out these moose that keep destroying my satellite.It's hunting season so no worries and I'm alone in the Woods (not completely I do have people next to me)Any suggestions I'm still building my .50 but I would not want to shoot an animal with it (and it's not together)Now it is destroying my back yard.It is time to take this moose down

I'd say a 7mm Rem Mag. with a 175 grain pill ought to do the job just fine. The 7mm's are superbly accurate and are good out to say 800 yards.

I don't approve of those who feel the need to voice their disapproval of others chosen "legal" sporting activities.

Sounds like an excellent excuse to justify one of Marlins excellent lever guns in .45/70

For big critters up close, it don't get much better.

Get yourself a 450 Bushmaster and it'll be BANK/PLOP! Lots of delicious moose meat right there!

I don't approve of people owning guns that don't like to hunt.
