    When I was younger I wanted to take a deer with every weapon that Ohio aloud you to use. Well over the years they added some on me but I still managed to keep up.

    My favorite is always the 44 mag pistol. Most offten when hit they tend to go "DEAD" real quick. Never had to track one with the "Mag"!!!!

    I've used more than anything my Savage 110 7mm mag, second was a 12 ga, and this year my PSE Bow which is what I will use from now on, no more gun hunting for me. Addicted to the rush of bowhunting! Chris

    12 and 20 gauge shotguns with slugs... they don't like to go far after you hit them right behind the shoulder with one of those!
