Big Bore Air Rifles For Hunting Big Game In Texas?

Nov 3, 2017

Luke's guest this week is Mr. Alan Cain, Whitetail deer program leader for Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. Alan and Ellis Powell, also with TPWD, recently used big bore air rifles to do a bit of research into the effectiveness of big bore air rifles for harvesting game. Earlier this week, Cain spoke at the TPWD Commissioners meeting in Lufkin and gave his opinion of the power and effectiveness of big bore air rifles in cleanly and humanely dispatching deer sized game.  At present, it appears there is a good chance that big bore air rifles might be allow for hunting big game in Texas next year.
