It would depend on the game. I think it is more than adequate for any dangerous game in N. America. If you are heading out of NA you may want something with a little more punch. Do you reload for it? It is not very common anymore. I had the pleasure of shooting one a few years back and it was like going back in time. It is a great round though.
Probably not - we've all heard the stories about charging bears that were "dead bears running" but kept coming anyway. It's definitely more than enough round to kill any dangerous game - but once they charge all bets are off short of a head or spine shot.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
