Poindexter, don't you know that deer are much tougher than they were a century ago? Nowadays a .300 Win Mag is underkill. Or at least that's what internet commandos would have you believe.

Well, all pigs have some hair. Not a lot, but it's there. I'm guessing the guy you get it from boils the hair off. Not real practical if you're going to butcher it yourself. Maybe it could be...

Good choice on the 45-70. Now, if you really want to have some fun, cast some 500 grain bullets and load it full of real black powder. That's what the cartridge was originally designed for.

I've never rode a Firebolt, but I rented a Ulysses in Vegas last summer. That's the psuedo-offroad model, but it still handled better than most any bike I've ridden. And it had tons of torque at...

Ouch! That sucks. I used to ride a lot growing up on the farm. I got kicked in the side of the knee once. My leg swelled up so bad I couldn't get my pants off. I feel your pain.
