NO,NO, NO..........No you do not. You only think you do. My wife shot her first elk with one shot from a 270 with a muzzle brake
(very recoil sensitive) #2 and #3 fell to one shot each with a 7mm and all was well until this last season where I made her practice with my 338 at 750yards (just in case).
Opening morning hours before daylight we grabbed our packs, locked the truck and started to walk away when I realized she was not packing her rifle, What gives? Where is your gun? Answer: I just plan on using yours. She got her bull a few days later while almost begrudgingly carrying her rifle but when the moment of truth arrived she asked for mine, cracked off one round and declared she had to have one. Hers is very early in construction so I can have mine to myself again this year.
My other hunting partner dropped his bull at 682 with my rifle as well and I figure it is just a matter of time before we build him one to.
