    Question How often do you hunt?

    I just wanted to see how many people who carry also hunt.

    Also, post your favorite hunting gun. (pics are great too, everyone likes to look at guns here)

    Much less than I'd like and used to. Prime reason is my old back - too much of a hike and too much trying to stay still in one spot = trouble. I do tho greatly relish the outdoors and simply ''communing'' with nature.

    My deer rifle is below, along with my 99c Savage in .243 which is a viable deer option too. Third is my varminter - Ruger 77 MkII in .223.

    every chance I get, which is probably about 15 - 20 times / year.

    It is ironic that I mostly only hunt archery. I find it more challenging and interesting. Plus, the woods are quiet. During rifle season, too many yahoos come out for one or 2 days, blast every moving thing and generally cause unsafe conditions. For me, it is nice and quiet w/ my High Country Archery bow sitting in my climber stand and hopefully bagging a deer for the freezer.

    In Cali, I would be hunting all the upland birds that I can get into
    Now, here in Ga., theres not much chance of hunting upland game.
    BUT... there is turkey, deer, wild pig, and the coyotes/coydogs.
    They are mainly responsable for the decimated population of main game animals here.
    I will be looking for a nice rimfire one of these days, prob in a .17 remington, so I can help take out those unwanted pests that don't belong here in the first place...

    Unfortunately, not that much. But watch out when turkey season rolls around! Otherwise, I might get in a squirrel trip or two a year.

    Very nice rifles P95Carry...I especially like the Remington 760, theres not nearly as many of those around as there ought to be.

    I personally love my pre-64 Winchester in 7mm Magnum, but I DO NOT like the idea of taking it in the field and risking its pristine condition, especially since it was my Great-Grandfathers, so it remains in the safe back home. My .270 Savage fits the bill nicely, and my 870 sees alot of use on the bird.

    I put down every chance I get. But when I moved to FL, I havnt had a chance.

    I used to hunt Whitetail, Black bear, Woodchuck, and the evil squirrel. Whenever daylight would let me. Now I dont have acess to land, A valid Fl biggame license, or time.

    My lack of hunting is the only drawback to moving fron N.Y.S. to FL .


    P.S.: I do still hunt the evil squirrels, but only with a slingshot, these stupid, scrawny little things are'nt worth waisting a .22lr on.

    Deer and rabbit whenever I can during their respective seasons. I'd like to get out west to hunt some of the more exotic or larger game though.
