Welcome Joe. There was quite a lot of discussion here when Louisiana's new "Primitive" season aired. You can probably search it here and find the threads. I shoot a stainless .50 cal. Huntsman. It has taken more deer than any other Handi I own. The reason is simple. The other Handis share the rifle season. The Huntsman has a season all to itself. The separate season in itself is a joke. The huntsman will kill anything within 2-300 yards just as a center fire rifle will.
Keep both eyes open and make the first shot good.
