Gee Dad, you don't need a car that goes 140 miles per hour either. But you have one.
Nobody said you need to fire all 20 rounds to kill a deer. Its about making reloading more convenient and less time consuming. If you want to be a tough guy while hunting, only bring one bullet for all I care.
But thanks for limiting me what you think I need. What else do I have too much of? Freedom?
looks like some idiot thinks that the deer is just gonna stand there willing to be prey. when they are very likely to bolt at sounds. both at the ones they recognize and the ones they don't.
.
I know that most hunters and many non-hunters realize that hunting ruminants is not as easy as some folks assume it is. I know that one has to take in several considerations. wind, terrain, habits of the species being hunted, etc.... I know that even the best hunters are going to need more than one bullet. especially with how shy ruminants like deer are. that it is possible just as the trigger is being pulled. the prey animal shys at something. be it a leaf, sound, what ever.
.
most likely the person assumes that for those who go fishing. all the person has to do is drop a line in. and the fish are gonna fight over who gets the hook. while going after the bait.

Two of the last 3 8 point bucks that I have bagged were running WIDE OPEN. Fortunately, they were close enough so that even thought they make my scope USELESS, I could fire a killing shot just by pointing the rifle towards them. A single shot rifle or even a bolt action is almost USELESS where I hunt, unless you like to go home EMPTY a LOT.

EVERYONE who I hunt with uses a SEMI-AUTOMATIC RIFLE. Only the "purists" or those with TONS OF TIME ON THEIR HANDS use a bolt-action rifle. Even a lever-action rifle is rarely seen out in the woods these days. It's been many years since someone in my hunting party has taken a deer with a bolt-action rifle. In the WOODS, you need that 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or even 5th shot to bag a deer, and if there are more than one, and you are party hunting, you can take more than one, so you NEED MORE AMMO. Reloading means FAILURE.

Sort of like a soldier, shooting at MULTIPLE TARGETS, that are constantly moving, RIGHT?? Same situation.

Not only that, but deer have a superior sense of smell, similar to a good sniffing dog. Their eyesight is a bit limited (mostly to black and white), but they can sniff out a human easily within a 100 yards or more (please note the huge sales of scent blocking products sold to deer hunters over the past 10 years, or the success of "doe scent" that is used to lure in big bucks -- I can account of 2 BIG bucks in the past few years due to using a top quality "doe scent".).

very true. and very much needed as both prey and hunter.
.
which is why scents that hides the hunter(s)' scent is a big business. we humans learned from the best. those being other hunter animals like cats. be they big or small.

Svengoolie was once kicked off the bus for a bad odor. What the driver didn't know is she covered herself with Doe urine. She was in heat and trying to mate with a big Somali buck she had seen on the bus. It was November during the rut.

Tip 4: Don't Hunt Alone
Whenever possible, you should go hunting with at least one partner. Together, you and your partner can watch out for one another. If either of you should have an accident, the other can ass­ist the injured party or go get help. Without a partner, you're left on your own. Something as simple as a twisted ankle can quickly become a life-threatening situation under the right set of circumstances.
It's doubly important to work with a partner if you'll be hunting in unfamiliar terrain. Together, you stand a better chance at navigating through the area and having a positive hunting experience than you would on your own.
If you enjoy hunting as a solitary experience, at the very least, you should tell other people when you're going out to hunt. Let someone else know when and where you'll be hunting. You should also establish a time when you'll touch base with that person to let him or her know you're fine after your hunting trip. If you suffer an injury, you don't want the added dangers of being caught outside without anyone knowing where you are.
Oh heck you could just use a cell phone to call for help right?

WRONG, where many hunt there is no cell coverage. You wouldn't know that either.

Don't be telling hunters how to hunt unless youve been one.

Which means that you don't know SQUAT about deer hunting.
If you are "party" hunting, and you see more than one deer, with the AR-15's "limited" size, you could easily go through more than ten rounds shooting at multiple deer, especially if they are running.
That hunter is NO MORE a DANGER to ANYBODY than they are to themselves. Only the deer are in danger.
Hey slewage, how many deer (I mean REAL deer) have you ever bagged?
Bagged? Slewage may very well been the one who was corn holing that dead deer in the ditch over sconny way.

White tails do have limited vision, but pick up movement very well.
In my younger days I had a chance to stalk a deer in a field, I was walking on ice, wearing tennis shoes, downwind, at roughly 200 yards. When I got out of my crouch, that deer was looking right at me. I couldn't freaking believe it.

please don't lower yourself to the level of a troll.

like the one who got on this thread yesterday and turned a subject into something rude, crude, & lewd. I'm talking about the one who took the Latin word for coarse. he tends to do that with pretty much every thread he is on.

So, you pretend I offered a call phone, pretend there's no coverage in every situation, and stupidly hunt alone ??

"Where many hunt" ??? LMAOROTFu ! YOU shouldn't own a gun, son...

Couple of years back I walked to the edge of a 200 yard long grass swamp. I must have spooked a whitetail because it was running FULL TILT down the middle of the swamp, not doing the jump run where they kind of hop along. At the far end was a hunter in a tree stand, the deer spotted the hunter and reverted from a 60 MPH all out run to a sneaky crawl right on the ground walking on its elbows. Having not seen a whitetail do that before it amazed me to see how sneaky they can be.

The guy in the tree stand never saw the animal.

Whitetails are NOT easy to stalk, unless of course the rut is on. Then they act like any male, they have a heart adaquate to supply only one head at a time.
