3. Bonded bullets are the needed to kill deer[/b].
a. Bonded bullets vs. non-bonded
b. Lead tips vs. poly tips

4. The 30-06 is the best all around caliber for hunting.[/b][/b]
a. The best all round caliber is the one you can shoot.
5. A magnum caliber kills deer better then a standard.[/b][/b]
a. Hunter’s ability to shoot is more important than caliber.
b. Shot placement is the key to any hunt.

6. Big heavy bullets provide more knockdown power and kill DRT/Light fast bullets provide hydrostatic shock and kills DRT.[/b][/b]

b. Faster bullets create more damage.
7. If you don’t find blood at the point of the shot or immediate area you missed.[/b][/b]
a. Heart shots can stop blood flow and pressure.
b. Impact sight looks different in the tree,
8. If my gun shoots a 2’’ group at 100 yards its will shoot the same at 400 yards.[/b][/b]

b. The angle can actually be an ever increasing arc.
9. Round nose bullets make good brush guns.[/b][/b]
a. All bullets deflect and no bullet bust through brush.

I had another post on here asking for the top hunting myths if you read it.

The workshop is for my church's men's retreat this weekend and no they aren't paying me for this.

I got the ideas from suggestion given by people on here and through conversations with other people.

I;ve found that you can tell anyone that they or what they post is stupid, so ya...you're right you can. And that's not a personal attack ^^ you say it yourself.

May I suggest when you do your workshop instead of running down the list as you presented it, break it into shooting and hunting categories/sections. It seems the majority surrounds shooting/gun related so go over these as sectionand the remainder as section on hunting myths. You may want to adlib orfind a few more suggestions for this section so it is more evenly distrubed if your not wanting to be more on the "shooting myth" side of things.

Good Luck. BTWgood on you to take the time/effort to promote our sport to others.

Yeah that was the plan. This is just the ruff draft I posted. Its going to be an open talk setting for others to throw in their opinions and ideas. I am going to have examples of different types of bullets, rifles, ammunition and good reading material for handouts.
