    Sorry, can't provide a photo but I have taken a couple hares with it. They didn't require a follow-up shot! That was back when I lived in Kodiak. Got one pine marten too! Some things are just best left un-photographed!
    We're a couple rungs short of being the top of the food chain on Kodiak...thus the .375 went with me a lot!

    Roger that!!

    Don't have a "favorite" because I haven't shot enough of them but I just picked up a 6.5-300 Wby mag and I'm hoping little sucker will impress me! I'm a fan of the 6.5mm bullet in general.

    centerfire, Id go 30-06, with a hammonds it works on grouse to grizz,

    all around best caliber is .62 smoothbore, I prefer flintlock, again, grouse to bison, it works fine and is fun as heck.

    that's my choices for hunting

    I'd have to go with a .300 win mag. as the best all around. Used to be my first and only for that very reason. I'm sure glad that now I have a 7mag and a 338 mag. Now the .300 sees less field time than either.
    I can't speak for the .375 AKaviator, but the .338 makes for some "better left unphotographed" snowshoe hares as well....but I took one anyways!

    By the way.. there's nothing better than snowshoe hare kabobs. At least when you've been living on Lipton noodles and peanut butter sandwiches for the better part of two months!!

    Can't disagree with that! Love my NSW NW Trade gun. Still trying to get used to that flinchlock tho!!!

    As for modern, if rooting out wounded big bears in a thicket is off the menu, the .30-06 with 180 gr. Nosler Partition.
