RE: What's the best way to lure in not so dominant bucks and lots of does?

Here's a thought. Deer are naturally curious, right? My idea, and I haven't tried this yet, would be to get a scented candle of a scent that the deer you're after wouldn't normally smell. Make very...

RE: Ruger 6.5x55

From what I've heard, the 6.5x55 Swede is used by moose hunters all through Scandanavia. It's all about bullet placement . . .

Hey, 260, I'm looking to get one of those this year.

RE: which .243 should i get?

No, ej, a .260 is a necked-down .308. Far less recoil, with bullets in the 120 grain to 140 grain range. It's a 6.5 mm round. The 6.5x55 round is what a lot of Swedes and Norsemen use on moose, so it...

RE: Bolt or Semi Auto??

Only one of the five deer I've taken has required more than one shot. However, I took two of those (the other four) deer within a minute of each other, so the 742 did its job rather well then.

RE: whitetail deer and black bear caliber

You can't go wrong with an '06. It'll take down 90-95% of what's on the North American continent (and has probably been used successfully on the remaining 5-10%). I have both an '06 and a .308.
