So what is the real situation here? Go back and read all of the various comments you're made in your posts on this thread before the last couple where we've mentioned them. Now you come back at us and say it was only once or twice when previously you have stated things that make it look like that's a common occurence the way you hunt. However, you put that in that quoted post above and you don't expect any criticism, LOL! Read it to yourself and don't tell me that sounds like a guy that knows what in the he** he's doing to humanely and safely take an animal! I guess maybe you're also one of those that thinks because you use that .338 that you can shoot them in the tail and they'll drop! Maybe drop a tree or two on them with those first several shots that hit timber and that bull/buck will stop for the tree to fall before he keeps going! Sorry, but you have made way too many statements in all your posts for us not to think like that!
For someone who doesn't want an argument, your exaggeration of tree felling and tail shooting seems a bit over the top.

I think I said twice in the afore mentioned scenario. They're all a little different. This probably isn't the time to tell you about the time I shot from the hip at a runner. I forgot about that one. That was definitely the right shot to take. "Plenty" is a subjective word. I probably should have had my attorney proof read it for me. Yes, given the limited details, I suppose in your minds eye, you can see me shooting at every shaking bush in the woods. If I was concerned about criticism, I would have weaved a more cautionary tale were I'm always the hero who never makes a mistake. Since my shot selection is fitted more for the circumstances at hand rather than pigeon holing a one-senario, one-shot mandate, I did in fact invite criticism. I accept your righteous indignation but do not regret those shots. Let the "putting me in my place" commence.

Re: Winchester Model 70 Extreme Weather SS

You're putting yourself in your own place with stupid comments like this one in your reply: "This probably isn't the time to tell you about the time I shot from the hip at a runner. I forgot about that one." Joking and guns do not go together Sir!!! The sooner you learn that, especially when you're talking to strangers on the net about guns, the better off you'll be!

Re: Winchester Model 70 Extreme Weather SS

Certainly not myself, but with every post you continue to put up like the last couple you are losing any credibility you had on here and it wasn't much too begin with!!!

Re: Winchester Model 70 Extreme Weather SS

I guess that's O.K. since I'm not trying to stockpile "internet credibility nuts". Sorry if a few of my experiences don't fit inside your box. They've worked well for me and have never compromised the safety to other hunters, regardless of what you may read into it.

So that's why I think you should expect more than 2 accurate shots from a hunting rifle...

Re: Winchester Model 70 Extreme Weather SS

I'd rather be an ethical and safe "internet nut" than one who keeps posting stupid comments like you do that certainly isn't helping you look you're one. Have you not wondered why nobody is posting in your defense with the baloney you keep coming up with?

Indeed I believe you to be a safe and ethical hunter. Also, I would not call you a nut as that would be bad manners. Once I have my mind made up, I don't spend to much time seeking the approval of others unless somehow they have a stake in it. No, I really don't expect anyone to come running to my defense. My opinion is my opinion with or without a crowd. Hope this doesn't mean we're not friends anymore!
