Calibers you've taken game with

Since I retired last year I plan on expanding the list as the years go on. Such as a mountain grizzly, black bear, moose, a free roaming Utah buffalo and a couple of other animals. I still have a few rifles and pistole's in my safe that have never been shot at an animal and a couple that I have never fired. Now if you had also asked about waterfowl then I could of put a few more ducks, geese, and a couple of swans up their with the shotguns.
Just this year alone I have harvested a number of rabbits, javelina, two deer, and 3 elk on the 4 legged type of animals. You have to love friends and relatives that don't hunt but love the meat along with being able to donate it to somebody that really needs it.

My only problem now is that I have to wait for February to head to Arizona for my next hunt on javelina and a few quail. At least rabbit season is here and I do like to eat rabbit.
