"weatherby 300 mag"? Nay, nay! It's all about shot placement. >;-) That's overkill. Dirty Thirty. Iron sights. You could even use one of those fancy new 22 centre fires but the bullets cost too much. Fuckin' yuppies with their newfangled high tech BS. Sitting over bait with their $1000 guns and $1000 optics. But... a 300W would make a short drag so, I'm cool with it. Whatever fills your BBQ.
When I was boy, we used sticks with ends sharpened by fire... when we could find fire. Oh, it was easy when the weather was dry. But, when the fall and winter set in, fire wasn't easy to come by. Unless there was a corner store near by where we could buy matches and Bic lighters. Times were tough.
In any case, bear season opened here today. Tight lines and straight shooting to all who like to eat wild (free range) meat and are ethical hunters. Sight in and flip the switch.... what you don't buy at the grocery store is helping to stop inhumane practices.
BTW... I still buy at the grocery... I can't hunt anymore. Sue me.
