Re: How Often Do You Hunt Big Game Out Of State?
I have never gone hunting...I am thinking of purchasing 2 rifles 1 for me and 1 for my 18 year old son. We are aware knowing where the placement of the shot is important when hunting. Which is why my son believes we should sign up for a long range precision target shooting course. We will probably get help there on hunting right? Well I am not to sure, so your help is needed.
1. Is there a course for hunting in the North Eastern region, MA, NJ, VA, PA, we live in NY, we are willing to travel to respect and learn HOW to shoot and do it safely to not harm other hunters.
We have been reading and recently came across the .338 caliber for taking down large game.
The problem we are having is understanding the functions of all the .338 ammunition. Yet which .338 ammunition will do the mercy killing efficiently with minimal suffering to the prey. We need to know about the ammunition before selecting the rifles.
2. Is there a web site that explains the different .338 ammunition in production? Or a good reading reference on the .338 ammunition?
I am leaning for my first game hunt to be wild (hog) boar outside of NY. I will eventually go for larger prey!
Any insight and information you provide to us, being that we new to the hunting community, we be honored and respected. Thank you! To all!
