    What weapon would you use if you won the Eastmans' hunt?

    I thought it would be interesting to see what weapon everyone would use if you were one of the lucky hunters that won the Eastmans' elk or deer hunt. I would probably take my bow and try to seal the deal with it, but I would probably also take a rifle just because it is a once in a lifetime hunt. What would you do?

    Elk hunt is an elk hunt. I'd use my muzzleloader like I do now.

    If it was an elk hunt, my custom .300 Wby. if deer or antelope, my Ruger 25-06. I shoot both very well and they do the job.

    Thats funny you mention a spear. There was some proposed legislation here in MT for there to be a spear season. I am not sure where that stands now, but I thought it was just a reason for someone to go out and act like an idiot. Sorry if anyone hunts with a spear, I don't mean to insult you personally!

    The funny part is that if you do get a 200" buck with a spear someone would still claim "with enough money i could do it too".

    Or, "the spears now a days make it easy"
