NEWBIE on the forum but not in the field

Just turned 66 but still in good shape and still love to hunt. Unfortunately I no longer love to kill. Would still like to take a giant muley but that's about it. Maybe get into hog hunting - they are really getting to be a problem here in Texas. Could sure eat some squirrel, also, which would be the only way I could justify harvesting them. I own rifles .223 rem, .270, 30.06, 7 mm rem mag, and 8 X 57 JS, which was handed down from my Dad. Would like to find out more about it - the markings don't tell me anything. The only lettering has: CESKOSLOVENSKAZBROJOVKA, A S, BRNO. I understand the calibre is very popular in Europe and I am trying to assess if there are enough high BC bullets for it to consider as my main gun, and selling everything else. Want a 10 gauge shotgun of some kind - saw a cool double on internet, but I don't trust doing business that way. Any ideas on either topic?

    Welcome aboard!!!

    I understand the not killing thing. I've just turned 69 and after removal of some worn out parts am in pretty good shape. . . for the shape I'm in

    Come on up to Ideehoe and well shuffle up a couple a mountains.

    I too am satisfied with making a long shot at what ever happens to be there. Mostly rocks... However, I see wolf, elk and a great buck in my future.

    I would definitely be an elk hunter if I lived up there - not for sport but for the table - wonderful fare. I go to Vegas all the time - why don't you drive on down and we'll discuss it! How's that for an Idee, Roy? By the way, I would like to come on up there.........permanently. Ever do any gold prospecting or metal detecting?
