    There is a certain cool factor going for the 7600. It sounds like a good choice.

    Yeah it’s such a fast pointing balanced death ray.
    I bought it to use for coyote calling...like a pump shotgun with accuracy and range...

    Osage self-bow I built not long ago. Will be my first hunt with it.

    That’s awesome.
    I have always thought about making my own bow. It’s on my bucket list for sure.
    Good luck.

    Thank you. I hope I'm not shooting myself in the foot with my choice. This seriously limits my range. On the flip side it will be awesome if the stars align and it all works out.

    I'll be rockin my Marlin 1895 45-70 as well. But mine is an oldie, manufactured in 1941. Looked at all the available factory loads and I think I'll just go with the good old Remington 405 gr factory loads. They should punch a hole through any bear foolish enough to step in front of me!
