Re: one rifle
I asked myself that ? 20+ AGO. picked up a 340 WM. It did everything I wanted, didnt make it on any far off hunts. But first season I ONE shot drt, 6x6,bear,deer,coyote, I shot gophers with it.Now my 16 yr. old son is giving it a go. I replaced it w/338NM 7-2 OZ.BARE. pUT 3@ 6/1/4 @1003. Hope it treats me 1/2 as good as the WM. One of the only animals I did not put down on purpose, was a moose I got no shot on with bow , facing at 30 yrds. I PASSED 18 bulls and I caught this bull at 90 yrds with my trusted 340, I was 1/4 mile from my bow. So I let him have it offhand, he was next to a pond and I did not want him in there or thick timber, he walked toward trees a few steps and I heard him couph. Then he turned towards the pond and laid down, not much later his massive 51'' head followed, after 28 yrs. putting in I had my Montana moose.Was able to get cell coverage and by dark had the whole family there, son was eight. My son wrote me a poem on the way home that night,''From the marshis green to the feelds of yellow the moos hunter below to the brown ferd felow. I get to apply again this year
