I see many of new hunters using automatics or pumps for hunting. Take deer hunting,many go out with a new gun every year always a automatic or pump action! Why? I was taught, like many by my father who was taught by his and so on. I got a JC Higgins bolt action single shot 12 gauge and one slug, If I missed I had to go back to Dad and explain to get another. It taught skills that are sadly lacking in younger hunters. I taught my sons with a Mossberg 185 bolt action, and the same methods that my father taught me. I fact many times he was there in on the hunt.My rules were if you get a deer next year you can have any shotgun you want. After all that,they picked bolt action guns for hunting... Now two of them are in the U.S.ARMY, and when they get leave to come home to hunt they get there bolts! I see more than a few deer taken that have two or three holes in it! I tell them they need more practice, and think before you shoot....We need more of the (one shot-one kill) method taught to the younger shooters.
