Mostly I shoot them with whatever is on hand. I even throwing rocks at them as well as try to run them down when I see them at the property. Sometimes I hunt them seriously. Yesterday was one of those days. Was going to use an.58 cal pedrosoli musket, but it was raining. So I borrowed a friends 25/06 shooting 117 grain reloads.very nice rifle he built, and it shoots like it looks, awesome. I was skeptical, but I did it anyway. Saw a hot walking between two feeders so I put the scope on it and shot it. I hit it on the left solidly and saw most on it's right. That 25/06 blew right threw. Seriously considering a set up like this. It was build on a thousand dollar budget and came in at $800.00 and change, with the scope.
