We eat dear a few times a week and turkey when ever we get some. I never looked at hunting as a game or sport like a lot of ppl, just something we do. The only thing I have ever wanted to hunt for the thrill is a elk. stalk it on foot with a bow. Of course eat it and all. I'm more of a Stoner than killer.
Most of my later gun carrying in the woods was for bear protection while tending my garden
What!? You can't use rifles to hunt deer up north? I've gunned deer with my 12Ga, I'd rather use a bow than the shotgun, but I'll take my 7.62 over both.
Nope not in Ohio the only rifle you can use is a muzzleloader, which isnt my cup of tea

We dont have armadillos. The only non-edible we were allowed to dispatch without prejudice were possums.
Around here at my grandparents farm, we could go for days on opossums, groundhogs and raccoons just cause they're nuisances. As for squirrels, I haven't ever done much squirrel hunting but I have heard they are delicious

Not really a hunter, yet. Going for a deer with a buddy who lives in the country this weekend, he let me borrow an extra Mossberg 12 gauge of his
I live in town, so guns are not of any real use. Have an older Remington .22 LR, and a nice Savage .17 HMR. Also have a fully automatic BB gun pistol I modded out Gotta have something to kill those pesky chipmunks in the yard, without pissing off the neighbors
So not exactly real hunter here, just recreational and target shooting guy. I do take care of a good number of squirrels and chipmunks each year though
Aint that an understatement.... Thats why I always liked the 30/30 LA. If you are decent at working the lever, even if you miss the first shot, you wont be much slower than someone with a semi auto and easily as fast and likely faster than a guy with a BA rifle. Typically you have to be a little closer though as a lot of the 30/30 LAs had shorter barrels so you cant reach out as far.
Hunting season is here for me. Didn't get anything the first time out, but going again Sunday. Hopefully that goes well. As for me: Deer and Elk, and occasionally bear.
