I have been meaning to do this for a while but keep forgetting about it. I was just wondering how many VA hunters we have in here. I live in Harrisonburg which sits in the middle of the Shenandoah Valley.
Yeah, I have had a good year but not here locally. I got a doe with the bow, a 6point with a muzzeloader and a doe with the rifle but they were all in eastern VA. I did alot of hunting near Broadway this year, back in behind Neff Lumber Mill. How did you do this year?
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
