You might want to look into the powerbelt bullets? Myself I am still a traditional ball and patch kind of guy, no inlines for me...flintlocks all the way. Still I know a lot of people that switched from the sabeted bullets to the powerbelts and never looked back.
As for shot placement, stick to traditional vital area shot placement. A good taxidermis will sew up the bullet hole so you will never know it was there.
Have a good time and good luck, where are you headed for the hunt?
Thankyou for the info. I am hunting in Northern Wis. . My season started on Wed. and have had 2 exciting days of hunting so far. Both days I have had bear up the same tree with me. Bigger ones come in and the smaller ones just happen to like my tree. Gets a little nerve wracking. Hoping for the big one yet.
When hunting whitetails there are many different languages being spoken afield that I key on when outdoors. All these little creatures living around whitetails have something to tell us if we are willing to listen.
My favorite tattletales of the outdoors are a handful of little birds that live in my state of Ohio. Maybe yours too. A tip for the upcoming season.
There are Blue Jays, Cardinals, Chickadees, Killdeer, and Sparrows that all have language...
