I'm getting a 30-06 T/C Venture ( I think. ) and it gets MOA accuracy at 100 yards, which is usually the range game is taken. I was wondering it it can take Big Exotic Game such as Zebra, Cape Buffalo, Lion, Jaguar, etc. At 100 yards or less.
While the 06 has killed every animal on the earth over it's 100+ year history you would be hard pressed to find a country that would allow it to hunt dangerous game such as a lion or cape buffalo. I'm not sure on the jaguar but it should be OK with a zebra. Most countries that allow you to hunt dangerous game have caliber restrictions in place and to hunt them it must be at least a 40 caliber and from a personal standpoint if I were to ever hunt them I would want some more power hunting something that is likely and wants to either stomp you into the ground or tear you to shreds before they are finished with you.
There can be too much of a good thing with antler rattling.
I like to hit the horns together for a good 30- to 40-second rattling sequence and then hang them up and resist the urge to hit them again.
This works to the hunter's advantage, because if a buck has heard it, he may have been 300 or 400 yards away and he comes in and he's not exactly sure where it came from.
When finally is time to rattle again throw a slight change-up into the routine.
The second time, don't rattle as loud...
