Belw, sounds good to me. That 50cal should do the job. I like the 243 myself. Outlaw

Outlaw from Idaho, I hear ya, I like that load rather well, when I hit that critter I know it's going down, no second shots here.

I have taken my 270 and turned it into a bench gun, I can sit there and shoot a ragged hole with it at 100-yards every time!
The trick is to float the barrel re calibrate the trigger and find the load that your gun likes. I like to use the same gun that I use for deer hunting, (Fear the man that owns but one gun for likely he knows how to use it!)hahahaha I do have many guns but I really like to shoot my 270 a lot. A friend of mine taught me that if shooting the bigger guns to take off the butt pad and plate and fill the hole in the stock with lead shot to the top, replace the plate and butt pad and you will have reduced the recoil of the rifle to a good amount!

Moosie I know what you mean. they are hard to get with a bow, ive only got 3 with a bow and those where while I was deer hunting. My first one spoiled me though and made me think it was easy:

I bought a browning tracker bow in 1981 just 2 weeks befor the season. Since I have shot bows at target my whole childhood I thought this would be simple. I went out and practiced everyday in the back yard till opening day. I thought I was a good shot and felt I was ready.
Opening morning deer season While I'm driving up the road a coyote walks out and looks I slam on the brakes get out take the shot. Bamm perfect shot (thinking to myself this is easy) found the coyote about 50 yards away.During that time I saw alot of deer sign
and one doe. So I go back park the truck and start deer hunting. about 2 hours into the hunt I find deer and lots of them . got within 40 yards and nail a forkey. he ran about 100 yards and died. I'm jumping up and down the whole time yeah this was easy. (this was the time az had 2 deer a year if ya get a second over the counter rifle tag). I load the truck and head back home. told my wife and all my friends how easy this was even talked 2 of them into bow hunting. I go the next week and pick up a second deer tag.

I'm still trying to fill that tag not only that but in the last 19 years Ive only got 2 more yotes. Ive called in yote within 5 yards but those things come so fast that I cant get a shot. I still try to get yotes with a bow but i very rarely get good shots.
