Handloads.Com ForumHuntingPoll: What do you typically hunt with?
Since such a large percentage of people who voted last time said they do hunt I thought getting a little more specific would be interesting.

What do you typically hunt with?
Handgun - Revolver
Handgun - Semi Auto
Rifle - Bolt Action
Rifle - Semi Auto
Rifle - Lever Action
Shotgun - Pump
Shotgun - Semi Auto

So many possible choices, "other" may be a popular answer for this one.

Weíll raise up our glasses against evil forces, singing; whiskey for my men, beer for my horses

Molon Labe!
Opening day I will be hunting with a rifle and a revolver. M94 30/30 with peep sights and a Bisley in 45 Colt strapped to my hip. Going retro this year.
John, you should get some interesting replies back to this one.
In Kansas we have a split season this year for whitetail. For the opening half I will hunt with a revolver...specifically a Taurus Raging Bull in .454 Casull. My load is 29grs of H110 and a handcast 300gr. RNFP gas-checked bullet. The second half of the season I'm thinking of taking out my 30-40 sporterized Krag....haven't hunted with it in a few years. Handgun hunting I pretty much stick with wheelguns in .44 or 45. With a rifle it's either the Krag or an older Model 70 in 30-06...both do an outstanding job on Kansas whitetail.
can't say i hunt with any weapon more than another
i hunt with my 45 lc bh if i plan to hunt the more mountainous terrain of the adirondacks because the shots are no more than 50 yards any ways...i use my 44 carbine if i plan on getting to my hunting area with my 4 wheeler because of its compact portability and if im hunting on my wifes uncles farm i bring the bolt 270. and of course theres alot of other situations that call for other guns mainly to give my wife a reason for my owning so many different guns.
lifes too short to spend it doing things you dont like...hunt more work less!

Long shots - 270 Remington stainless composite
Short shots - 45 Long Colt, Ruger Bisley stainless
Birds - Remington 870
Defense - Kimber 45
either a .44 Redhawk, .41 Blackhawk, or a .480 Superredhawk along with a Mossburg 695 bolt action shotgun for deer or a MK-2 22 for bunnies
Itís only funny untill someone getís hurt, than itís hilarious !
Oh yeah, forgot the one I probably burn more ammo with, a Martini 22 with excellent peep sights. Is a wonderfully accurate rifle.
every thing on the list cept for the semiauto's.
The most expensive bullet there is ain’t worth a plug nickel if it don’t go where its supposed to.
Well, since I had to pick only one I chose other. Most of my hunting is done with a muzzle loader (required for the area I hunt) and/or a shotgun. Public land is sort of scarce in my area of Texas and they have imposed these requirements on us.
Deer-Single shot 35 rem.pistol or .44 mag revolver.
Squirrel-.22 bolt action rifle or .22 auto pistol.
Rabbit-12 guage pump.
Hunt hard,hunt long
The early season here in PA. It is doe only with the black powder.I use a SHANADOA 50cal. with a round ball + patch.Then small game comes in,a 22 CONDENDER.Then Buck + Doe come in so I am useing this year a XP100 in 7MMBR. I will carry the 454 CASULL and the 30-06 RUGER 77R. for BEAR.
Always a .300 Mag. Never know when you'll need a long shot for that Trophy.
They make hunting guns that are not a rebarreled 98 Mauser? I didn't know that!

Seriously, I did finaly manage to get myself, my Ruger 96/44 and a deer all in the same 70 yd circle last Saturday, and I must say, I was favorable impressed with the .44 on that deer. Of course I used my 98's in '06 for the first two!
Is it deer season yet?
I was sort of surprised to find Revolvers were right up there with rifles - well almsot.

Of course I was way down in that 2% range - big surprize (my picture is in the dictionary by the term "weird").

Keep plugging!

The Technician is more important than the Technology
Groundhogs and the like .225 win Bolt Action
