    Present! I have many different guns. Elk are my target of choice and I hunt with a .300 winchester. When I hunt deer I generally use my 7mm or my .270

    If I can find some photos I could post up a couple of the 338 bull I shot about 4-5 years ago. Huge rush. I have gotten a few cows but only two bulls

    I saw the Z7 sitting there at the same time. Couldn't justify 1k+ for my first bow. I don't even really know what the hell I'm doing yet. I can call with the best of em though, but finally took bowhunters safety this last summer. Figured it was time to pick up the bow, as I have gotten very sick of jockeying for position all the time with hunters come rifle season.

    100% with you on that. all my friends are mad into archery so my buddy gave me his old LX i've been using now i'm going to just keep it for a target bow and upgrade! and archery is kind of a more relaxed style of hunting imo other than drunken rednecks piling into the woods with high powered rifles like you said jockying for positions!
