Deer season starts in 10 days here is SC with plenty of heat, bugs, and snakes. I'll have my Ruger Super Blackhawk Bisley hunter ready to go. Shooting a Nikon 2x20 scope and factory Hornady 210 grain XTP's. I should have plenty of hogs thrown in the mix to make it interesting.

Tennessee's muzzleloader season starts November 4th, and I'll be packing a CVA Optima pistol loaded with Blackhorn 209 and 200 grain Barnes XPBs. Two weeks later - on the 18th - during the regular season, my primary handgun will be my 14" S&W Model 460 loaded with 275 grain Barnes XPBs, with a 41 Magnum Blackhawk loaded with 250 Cast Performance WFLGC bullets on my belt. If extenuating circumstances arise and I absolutely need to put a deer on the ground, I'll break out the 300 Win Mag Encore.

Goals for this season in order of preference:
1. Bloody the 460.
2. Bloody the Optima.
3. Bloody the 41.
4. 200+ yard shot with my 300 Encore.

Bow season opens at the beginning of October here and I'll be out there with one of my recurves/longbows. Gun season around the first part of November and I'm committed to my Glock G40 topped with a Venom 3MOA.

Whitetails and turkeys for sure at my hill country lease. But I also usually get an invite or two in south Texas, where hogs become an equally opportunity critter...

.444 Marlin and .45/70 BFRs more than likely.

I'm headed out on a river, rifle hunt for moose in September. The unit has an open caribou season running concurrently. I hope to find a cow and will be carrying a 401 Herters Powermag with a 240 grain WLN LBT bullet.

I hope to be bear hunting in Maine this September. Haven't decided if I will use my crossbow or my 5" Super Redhawk in 44 mag with a 30mm UltraDot sight.

For deer here in IL I hope to take one with my 44 SRH and one with my Encore with a 9" MGM barrel in 357 mag. For muzzle loader season I will use my Encore 50 caliber and/or my TC 54 caliber Renegade.

For food plots and stands with longer range shot ops ... my Encore.

For thick woods and dense cover with shorter range ... my Super BlackHawk Hunter.

SBH .44 mag for deer this year. In the process of acquiring a SRH in .480 Ruger. If I have that dialed in by November, I'll try that as well.

For me that can change from day to day or even moment to moment depending on my mood. Right now I'm leaning toward my 6" FA 454 Casull but my 15" 375JDJ and Marlin 444S keep calling to me too. I might wind up using a 5" 44 mag BFR, 54 cal Plains Rifle or .62 flintlock. Just depends on what I feel like when I'm heading out.
