Trolling works and catches some fish.

If it is legal, not much folks should say - more deer get lost to archers.

Love using my ar. Shorter then a regular rifle so easy to move in tight spaces. I'm not a fan of 223 though I have seen many deer take dirt naps with them. I got mine built in 7.62x39 to have more power. I have killed three with it so far the furthest one to one is 50 yds at most. Great gun for hunting thickets in a small blind.

I built a 7.62x39 that I have killed several with. It's my go-to woods gun now.

I have a 100% DRT kill ratio with my .223. (Full disclosure: I shot my first deer with it on opening day with a neck shot using a 62 grain Hog Hammer.)

My bowhunting friend has audacity to tell me that a .223 isn't big enough for a deer, when he had to call a dog tracker to find the last deer he killed.
