    2 wolves. Let out a cow call and they started howling and coming to the lake. Popped out 300 yards away and was just getting lined up when they disappeared. They came out on the other side of a small creek about 40 yards away howling and walked right at my son and myself he was getting his phone out for pictures when I let fly with a 35 whelen with 225gr handload partitions. They were at about 20 yds. He didn't get the pictures.

    No it got left behind in the gut pile. "Melted with the meat" thats funny.

    300wm and 300wsm deer and several moose at 25 feet or less.

    Going by your logic you should have a 460 Weatherby or maybe a Howitzer. I'm gathering you're one of those guys that are scared to walk in the bush without a gun. Which is usually 50 feet past the edge of the pavement. I trust a good man with a 30-30 over a knee knocking nail biter with a 45-70. My .44 ranch hand definitely doesn't meat your approval eather.

    More like another, Rain Coast Sociopath Fraud. Living off the prevails of his chronic lies, like the rest of them...

    It's an issue, because these sociopath environmentalist's, will dilute the facts.
    To the point you or Joe public, won't know them any more..

    Standard load for the .444 Marlin is a 265gr at 2300fps. I shoot 300gr at 2200fps and 325gr hard cast at 2000fps in mine. It's nothing to sneeze at.

    The closest big game animal was a whitetail at about 10 feet with a .300WM. Biggest caliber was .416 Rigby on a black bear.
