Well... I'm not so old (but don't ask my Rug Rat), that I'm so set in my ways as to not be willing to try something else ;)
I'll try Wolves.
Actually, I have a family member that raises pedigreed Kobe cattle, and she has asked me on a number of occasions to "come on down for a visit... and bring that rifle of yours".
She occasionally has problems with packs feral dogs, and yotes. Normally, the cattle can defend themselves, but during calving season, it's an expensive problem. A pedigreed Kobe calf is worth the price of a nice car.
I used to whack the dogs with a 300WM, but the bullets were like the Everyready Bunny... they went through the dogs, and kept on going and going and going and going.
So she ponied up the cash for a new rifle a while back - a Sendero-II SS SF, in .264WM... it is down right un-Godly in what it does to a 40 pound canine, with 95gr V-Maxs at 3700fps.
So - there...
... I CAN shoot somfin besides cats ;) ;)
