Hey Mike: Here in Illinois we have a late season that was originally a pistol-only season for antlerless deer. Now the late season is open to shotgun, muzzleloaders and handguns, but our regular shotgun season in November has also allowed pistols.
Once upon a time long-barreled large caliber revolvers were a highly prized commodity around here, and I have in the last year or two seen a resurgence of interest in handgun hunting. I am kind of stuck in my ways and being a lefty, I love the Ruger single actions and how they load in my hands.
Just wondering, do other bloggers ever handgun hunt and if so, what do they use? Single or double action? What caliber? Is .357 enough? Do they like .45 long Colt over.44 mag.?
I get a lot of these questions and I know it's not discussed much, but I would be interested to see what the mind trusts at Big Deer have to say?--Thanks, Matt "Flatlander" in Illinois
