    Florida is AWESOME.... or why I need a 9.3x62mm rifle

    I don't have to fly halfway around the world to go Sambar Deer hunting.



    St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge Sambar Deer Permit - Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

    I need to get me a nice 9.3x62mm rifle just to make it perfect.

    Magnificent animal.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Great animal, not yours i take it. Have had a bit of a read of the permit link info, seems a good system, are the returns used to taylor the no of permits issued so the population is maintained at a sustainable level?

    Correct, not my critter. But I sure as hell wanna hunt one. So far Black Powder and Archery is allowed. Word is they'll open a General Gun season. Hence my quest for a 9.3x62mm.

    Top one is a Marlin 1895 in .45-70 Government. I have some Garrett's heavy duty loads for it. It isn't cheap but it'll knock a bull elephant down.
