Default Pistol Hunting Success

Getting close to that time of year. I'm going to give the revolver a shot this year. Show of your pistol trophys to get us all in the mood.

Thanks

Here is a picture of the 130 lb boar I took in Pa. with my 357mag in 2010.
I also attached is a picture of my first N.Y. handgun whitetail back in 1986 - a doe with a 44mag.
In 1996 I took my first N.Y. handgun buck - a broken 3 point using my 357mag

I don't know of any free ranging boars in the Northeast so I went to Double Boar Ranch in Northwest Pa.

45 yards.
I believe it was 150 grain Corelokt. Have since switched to Leverevolution.

No deer yet, but I'm set with the pistol...

Bought this 50th Anniversary .44 mag last summer, had never been shot...I took care of that the next day...
