What Has Changed?
Our fathers and grandfathers would grab whatever rifle they owned to go deer hunting. Some took their .30-06, some took their .30-30. their .300 savage, even .25-35's. No one balked at them for having under powered cartridges. They went and shot and killed and brought home a shkinny whitetail for supper.
Were the deer more thin skinned back then? Do deer also use steroids? Was the ammo loaded hotter then today? Did the last generations have some magical ability to kill deer with bullets not powered by cartridges that require several adjectives in their names?
Really, seriously, what has changed with deer hunting?
