Like to hear what fellow handgun hunters most memorable hunts with a handgun where/are.

Mine were and still are hunting with my son and his "admiration" of his old dad harvesting game with a short gun.

For sure, AK, my Muzzleloader Bull Elk hunt (see home page: Home Page ) ranks among the top ones for me.

Each whitetail buck handgun harvest is memorable for me because they hang on my den wall (except for one) and I look up at them all the time and recount the hunt. Ain't nuthin' like it!

My South African handgun safari was a childhood dream come true. 6 great animals in 9 days of hunting. The greatest memory of the trip was the long stalk and wait to bag my Kudu bull. That day tested all of my hunting and shooting skills. The hunt ended with a perfectly placed shot at 190 yards from my Contender 358 JDJ.

Opening day of the 2016 modern gun season was mine. I didn't tag a deer but I had several deer and a few shooter bucks around me. All the while listening to a wood duck roost about 50 yards away from me.

I ended up passing on a buck that I later regretted. He was in the shadows before I could see his headgear but you could put a saddle on him.

Laying out if an small bowl of virgin P dogs with my contender and 17 hmr barrel and spending the next hour and we'll over a hundred rounds educating then.
Not really a hunt, but lots of fun.

My most memorable handgun hunt was my first deer kill with a handgun, I was using a scoped 10" Contender barrel in 7mmTCU.

I'd have to say the 11 Point I took with the G20 last year. On the ground with a Glock at 35 yards ... won't forget that one.
