I can't help but wonder, what non-hunting, boneheaded, genious at the DNR made the command decision to put the "Special 4 Day Gun Hunt" right smack dab in the middle of the PRIME TIME part of the Bow Hunting season. Why coudn't they have put it at the begining of the Bow Hunt or just added 4 days at the end of the regular gun hunt.
Bow Hunting is like a religion to the true dedicated Bow Hunters. It just doesn't seem right, especially when Bow Hunters have been scouting, patterning and reconing the movements of deer in their woods for months.
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...
