Gun Up, Cowboy
Here’s a fine article for the serious reader. If you hunt or plan on hunting, knowing some of this stuff just might pay off in a freezer full of game. In my long growth curve, I’ve shot over the shoulders of too many bucks because they were just close enough for my trajectory to fly over them.
Sorry, I bring that up humbly because I hate to see anybody wound or miss an animal for lack of knowledge. So I encourage you to pay attention and gain a little knowledge from Smokey Merkley from his blog post.
