    I bet Fox racing didn't think anyone would actually use the ammo holders :naughty:

    Does anyone deer hunt with a shotgun? People might... but everyone I know either does rifle or bow.

    WTF? what kinda bullshit is that? We take fox's regularly with .223

    That's the only centerfire I can think of that we do.

    So if you wanted... you couldn't take down a whitetail with a 30-06 or even a 30-30?

    Edit: on a side note I hopefully will be hunting elk this fall with the .300

    A lot of states have the same rules, Ohio and New York come to mind off the bat, though a ballistics lab recently reported that they've found that shotguns are not any less dangerous that rifles, and in some cases are actually more dangerous since they're somehow more likely to ricochet. Interesting stuff.

    You're also not allowed to use auto loading rifles to hunt in some states, such a Pennsylvania.

    The only hunting laws that come to mind is caliber size Vs. game size and lead shot while duck hunting.

    Much of it has to do with how many hunters there are in a given area and how flat the land it....even though most hunt from the trees now.


    A good number of people use muzzleloaders anyway

    :ugh: I wasn't bashing it... I was only asking... I see buckshot/slugs for sale but I don't know anyone who uses a shotgun. But in this thread... people have discussed in certain areas you can't use rifles :hsugh:

    I'm more then positive buckshot will do the job... but I've never personally known anyone who used shotguns for hunting deer.

    Muzzle loading is something I can't get into... my dad does it but I have no interest :dunno:

    Exactly.

    I live right on the border of Kentucky and Ohio. The reason rifles are allowed in kentucky and not in ohio is Ohio is alot flatter, while kentucky has alot more hills. Rifles go much further than shotguns in the case of a miss.

    Why do someone hunt with shotguns and not rifles?
    I wouldn't mind giving rifle hunting a shot sometime, but from what I've seen on the hunting shows on TV, and just the general idea of it, it sounds pretty unsportsmanly. With a shotgun with slugs you have to get within 100 yards or so, well within hearing range of an animal. With a rifle, you can just kinda hang out on your back porch and nail a deer from a few hundred yards away.

    I am NOT saying that people shouldn't be allowed to hunt with rifles, I'm not fucking Jim Zumbo here. If the animal is dead, its dead. But some people like the challenge of having to get closer to hunt.

  19. Yeah can't hunt with rifles in most if not all of MD I think. Good thing we have like 170 acres of land in WV though.

    If I started hunting deer or other larger game, I'd probably get a 30-30 levergun. Not going to be shooting things more than a few hundred yards away with one of those.

    More and more studies are finding that shotguns are as dangerous or even more dangerous the rifles, any more a good muzzleloader doesn't fall very short of .30-30 or other slow cartridges, so I don't really see why they're still why rifles are still outlawed in so many states.

    I don't know either. They should just change it so you have to be in a stand to use a rifle or something.
