  1. I was always the guy that said you have to shoot a lot to be a good shot with a bow, I no longer think this. This year I haven’t shot more than 2 arrows a day other than a quick tune check about a month ago. I don’t know if I’ve ever shot my hunting bows better than I am this year. Years ago I would shoot 20-100 arrows a day for months before season. This year I shot 1-2 arrows 2-3 times a week since turkey season, daily since mid August. What’s everyone else think?

    Barnes 300gn TSX at 2300fps at the muzzle. Deer didn’t seem to like that load much. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. You’ve already bought it so I don’t see you changing your mind at this point but you’re completely overlooking the most important aspect of meat damage and that is the bullets construction. Lead ruins more meat than a monolithic. That’s been proven. I don’t really follow 30-30’s but is there a copper bullet commercially made for them? Lead partials from the bullet fragmentation damage a lot of meat because of their added wound channels. The federal classic you used in your 30-06 is a notoriously hard bullet. Which would explain the minimal meat damage you’ve saw in your “experience.” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Like it or not yes, when you vote for someone your supporting their policies. You may not like them but you’re supporting them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. I learned long ago to try not to take advice from people who say “one bad experience” and “on the two” when giving advice. Your completely contradicting yourself, 243 with a 100gn pill is traveling 2900 and change FPS and your 30-06 with your 150gn bullet is traveling at 2900 and change. So if velocity is the mess maker the 06 with a 150 is going to make more of a “mess” than a 243 giving it’s .06 larger diameter and the same velocities. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. How can you say he’s middle of the road? He’s the most weathervane politician I’ve ever saw. Whatever way the wind blows is the way he’ll point. There’s literally not a topic he hasn’t flip flopped on over his half century in politics. But good try! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Ke doesn’t cause more meat damage all things being equal. Velocity is the main culprit for “messy meat.” Due to the larger permanent and temporary wound channel. Ke just keeps the bullet going in the direction it started. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’m confused by how you think a 180gn 30-06 makes more of a mess than a 150gn 308? The 150 from a 308 is traveling 150ish FPS faster, if you’re using the same bullet and shot placement the 308 will be more messy every time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. The problem with these questions is that other than a very few on here most on here haven’t killed 10 deer with a rifle. I’m not putting anyone down but unless you’re in a few small areas most likely you’re only killing 1 or 2 deer a year with a rifle. And a large portion of the state has been shotgun only until not that long ago. That being said both the 30-06 and 308 have been around a long time and are both fine choices for deer/bear in New York as well as anything else that walks on North America other than maybe a costal brownie. Me personally I own both and have killed deer with both. They both do it all very well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. My philosophy is to go mono e mono with a buck worth shooting in the big woods. Doing it my way on their turf is what I live for! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
