i put in the same category as hunting with thermal, pointed bullets etc
everything past bare hands and possibly a stone as apes have been shown to use stones as weapons....is not "natural"
hunting deer from up in a tree is not natural either but we say its ok
i also believe the gear race and shitty shots on game is just stupid but im not the one tasked with drawing up the regs
personally i dont think a shot over 200-300 max is hunting for sport
if i needed food to feed myself or family in a survival situation its totally different but when you can go to the store and buy chicken i dont see the need
and truthfully 99.9% of the rifle owners shoot and reload like shit, in 2022 where you can buy a rifle for 300$ that shoots 1 moa and match ammo that shoots .5...and you cant shoot or load either as well...your a moron
a decent portion of them should not be allowed outside with a rifle as they are dangerous to themselves and others
but this is the US and to each their own, go make yourself happy in the woods for a few days and have a experience you can tell your grandkids
I pulled up to a hunter check station and got out in blue jeans and a black hoodie and the three hunters ahead of me decked out in hundreds of dollars of Realtree shit smirked at me until I dropped the tailgate and they saw my buck and 2 does, they each had one deer. Smug pricks weren’t so smug after that.
Here's that guy you're making fun of.The ol right hand / left eye trick. Not many know that one.
Well not exactly. Since Louisiana and Mississippi have lands and boundaries that change due to the vagarities of the Mississippi river, these two states maintain similar wildlife laws. So, when Mississippi adopted a rather lenient primitive weapon definition, Louisiana changed ours as well.this will get me some shit. i was around and hunting when the "primative weapons season" BS started. we have stainless barrel,adjustable scope,synthetic stock,in line ignition,synthetic powder,saboted bullets? not to mention multi pulleys,metal "strings",synthetic bows. these are primative weapons that need the advantage of earlier seasons? your tikka or my savage are way more primative.
I lucked into not doing that. When I first got into LR I was going to go to Clay Spencer and 'Do a build". $3000 to get started. So I looked around and asked questions and a knowledgeable person steered me to a Remington 5R in stainless for $950 or so. It shot a ragged hole at 100 out of the box. I dont think a 3 K rifle would make me shoot any better.Because a monkey can make extra long shots with enough money spent on gear. Nothing else matters but the rifle and wangy dangy scopey calcualtor will do it all.
The fact is several guys around me have invested in "snipery" rifles and gear. The Christianson Arms stuff seemingly being popular with this crowd in my AO. The same shitty shooters are still shitty shooters. One fella impressed by my load work up for a good friend and how that rifle shot wanted me to work up a load to make his "custom" rifle accurate. It seems he couldn't get it to shoot better than 3" at 100 yards. Mind you this was a decent gun that I shot with factory loads and it easily printed slightly sub 1" groups. No amount of gear or load work up is going to help him shoot better. Just like this article the guy figured if he bought the stuff it would transform him into a shooter. This is the kind of guy that makes this argument, buying into this stupidity of the gear making a poor rifleman a good one.
Just a way to open up bag limits for the car insurance lobbyists.this will get me some shit. i was around and hunting when the "primative weapons season" BS started. we have stainless barrel,adjustable scope,synthetic stock,in line ignition,synthetic powder,saboted bullets? not to mention multi pulleys,metal "strings",synthetic bows. these are primative weapons that need the advantage of earlier seasons? your tikka or my savage are way more primative.
North and South kackalaki deer seasons are stepped by weapon systems. They start modern gun 10-11-22, NC modern gun started 10-15-22, but we got until the 1st or 2nd of Januaryi might be wrong,but i think so.carolina has the longest deer season in the country and it is any weapon from the 1st day.
