Re: You're favorite "woods gun"? mine proved true today
To date and the most lethal that I have used with great effect and enjoyment has been a 25-06 loaded with 120grn game kings. Nothing got away from me that I connected with. 5 shots and 4 deer. The miss took the jaw off trying to make an off hand head shot. Didn't want it to die slowly so, I finished it off after shooting its buddy and realized I didn't miss the first one.
My 338WM in a number 1b ruger was quite fun to use in the woods to. 3 shots and 3 deer.
These were all in seperate seasons as not to sound like I am incriminating myself. This was over a the course of about 15yrs. All shots were 50yrds or less.
