I'll be moving from Dillingham to Juneau in a month or so and am really looking forward to deer hunting. I already started a thread about lever guns for deer and after much good input have decided on finding a Win 94 in decent shape just to enjoy a light carrying, fast shooting gun.
However, smokey's thread about the Pistolas got me thinking about why I see lots of black tail pictures with bows....even recurves and longbows....but few (or none really) with pistols. Do you guys use em, or what's the deal. Seems the pics are either scoped rifles, or bows.
I have a six inch Taurus 357 that I have chased whitetails with before and am confident with as far as I can shoot my bow (read, 40 yards with a rest). It's obviously lighter than other options, and it would sit comfortably in my chest holster, leaving free hands to clutch Devil's club while scaling the hills.
So, what am I missing?
Thanks in Advance.
