    Kingpin, thank you - that is IT!! I must wear Loyd Christmas's Orange 70's ruffle tuxedo with top hot. That's absolutely perfect, as I won't need to wear any hunter orange on top of it!

    This shall be known as the Loyd Christmas deer (and yes it will be a remedial inside the orange suit). :D



    While I completely agree with that sentiment in general, it all depends upon the range, range, range. The .38 snubnosed (that I am practiced with) may very well be unethical to try to shoot a deer at 30 yards, 27 yards, 25, 22, 20, 18, 15, 14, 13, 12, and 11 yards. But at *some* point, it's just NOT unethical any longer. If I get close enough, I can hit the heart or spine with a .38 special. I would definitely not take a shot past 8 or 10 yards with this gun. Ideally, I'd get in a stand right over a trail and shoot it in the spine at 1 yard (plus the 10 feet down). Or get in a blind and shoot it at 5 yards broadside into the heart. Believe me, I'm not gonna do it if it's not a very very short, clean ethical shot. But a .38 has enough power to kill cleanly one of these 70-80 lb does around here. I will probably have both a 6" .357 magnum (or a 5" .45 colt), AND the .38 special snubbie. If the deer comes in at 15 or 20 yards, or 30 even, then I'll use the longer bbl gun. Close range, the snubbie.

    And, not only will this end the "which .300 buttstomper" debate, and the "which ultimate camo pattern" debate, it will also end the "which ultra premium ballistic silvertip nickelplated partition bonded titanium explosive platinum core ammo" question as well. :)

    Look up Rules of Fair Chase and see if it's about the same thing.

    While I have no doubt that a well placed .38 Special round from an appropriate weapon is suffient for deer, I'm not sure that there's a load in existence that would have enough energy in a snubbie to be ethical for deer.

    however,
    with the chaps style and pannache that will more than make up for the weapon choice. the deer will die of charm.

    Love to see the photos

    Why not a clown suit and big flappy shoes?

    But of course, FIRST you have to do it.

    That's a lot of confidence to put in a snubnosed .38. Shoot well. Deer deserve respect.

    I always wanted to dress up in cowboy boots with the spurs and all and an oversized cowboy hat and hunt something with a .45 colt or stagecoach shotgun. But then I realized it was just an excuse to yell yeehaw as much as I want after the hunt.

    Mr Bond, i presume

    No,
    I go with the original choice. you could also use a walther ppk, however in .380 acp (i think) you would have to charm the animal into such a state you could take a humane killer type of shot.

    If we were allowed pistols i would have a walther ppk. But i wouldn't dress for dinner to shoot cans in the garden.

    Hmmm... reminds me of a wedding I was in about a year ago.

    We had to wear cammo vest and tie... the girls dresses were orange...

    Would have made a very good hunting dress code.

    Go for it, Premium Sauces. I know some old farmer types that relish wild turkey but disdain the camo clothing routine. I don't exaggerate too much when I describe their hunting style of walking into the woods in their bib overalls and clodhopper boots, toting the old family 12 gauge.

    A few of them might make the sound of a hen purr, but most don't. Nor do they spend large sums on buffered, multi-shot size turkey ammo.

    They sit quietly upon a log, stump, or against a tree, and always seem to enjoy turkey sandwiches.......................
