Things that I have witnessed over the last 20-40 years. Society has become devoid of common sense and reasoning skills. Idiots breeding more idiots who are led by the nose through simple flashing lights from their iphones and other gadgets. Not only are they told what to think and what to do all under the BS of " social connectedness" but they pay a monthly fee for it.

Research has shown that 1 in 5 Liberal supporters is "just as stupid" as the other 4!

A liberal is a lot like a slinkey........They both put a smile on your face when you push them down the stairs!

so is the 4.3 better for deer than a 4.8?   Usually bigger is better or is it something about the ballistics?

Drove the 4.3 for 11 years and got two. I'll have my 4.8 for 11 years this coming fall and got none. So, in my case the 4.3 is better lol.

I haven't gotten any with my 5.3.   Do you think it's too big for deer?

Hey now, I drive a ranger. Been driving around for 15+/-years and have yet to get any. I guess I drive slow enough to stop before I hit them, been close a few times.
I was behind a guy 2years ago that hit one so I stopped to see if he needed help, he was almost in tears as he just got the car from the dealership the day before. Lol
