I nice bonus to Missouri deer season. Pistol or muzzleloader.
I have a few that haven't been bloodied, I need a vote of which one needs to get the job done or just go with the old smoke pole? The smoke pole and the Kel-tec PLR .223 (poll should say PLR-16 not PMR sorry) both have scopes the rest are open sights.

Ruger Redhawk .44

29 Mountain gun

    The mountain gun is a grail gun for me personally. The grips its wearing are icing.

    There is something special about a .41 mag

    I like smoke poles for hunting, although sometimes I get the urge to shoot a deer with either my S&W .586 .357 or my Stainless Steel Springfield Armory 1911-A1 in 45 ACP. I alternate carrying them hunting since I have holsters for both. But either a 44 Mag or 41 Mag would be a hoot.

    Now getting down to the real question, I like the Mountain Gun.

    Redhawk. The ak "pistol", while yes it's a...pistol...will get the possum police riled up, I'd reckon.

    I'll have my BP pistol this weekend.

    Do you guys have magazine restrictions for hunting in Mozambique?

    I voted .41 magnum.

    The reality is use whatever you can hit a 5 inch circle at 100 yards. The .44 mountain gun is nice, but not likely...

    I went with the .41, there's just something special about a .41

    Good luck, headed North to Hamilton for this weekend. I have the muzzle loaders, the redhawk and PLR-16 in the truck, will make my decision on what goes to the stand on the drive up. New places to hunt are always fun - Good luck Brother

    edited: changed gears, I don't have a holster to carry the monstrosity redhawk, going to take the muzzle loader (which both were still dead nuts when I took to the range last night) and going to carry this on my side in holster. (I don't have enough range time yet with the .41 blackhawk to feel comfortable with a shot)

    Saw one buck fairly early, I could not tell if it was a legal buck (4 points on one side) - so no shot.
    Evening hunt, about 10 to 12 deer funneled in the field right next to property I was hunting, including a really nice 8 pointer, unfortunately I am not allowed to hunt this. It was fun watching, but no shooters came through "my" section of woods. Heading down to Warsaw the 28th and 29th with my Son to put our last two days of deer hunting in for they year. Looking forward to it.

    Does it involve tenderizing via juggling?
