largest animal I have ever shot with a .22 LR: feral Hog at point blank range after a friend gut shot it with his bow. I just didn't quite have the b@lls to go in after it with a knofe, so I used the 10\22 to double tap it at the base of the skull.
largest taken on a regular basis with a .22: close range coyotes in my back yard in NY. Took one straight through the eye at 10 yards at the start of spring while it was stalking my grandfather's jack russel.
If I have to explain why I ride, you wouldn't understand. Explaining sex to an alien would be easier than explaining the feeling, one that boils all that is going on in your life down to what really matters each time you are in The Wind. All I can say is, Life is not Life without it.
