I drew out for the Wasatch velociraptor hunt and was wondering what the best caliber is to use? I was going to use my .243 but someone told me it might be a little underpowered. What would be your recommendations?
I would say that's a piss poor way of getting your dino... ;-)Well, funny you should ask...... In order to not harm condors with lead based bullets there is a new way to legally harvest them. Take a razor blade and wedge it into a tree trunk with the blade exposed. Urinate on the blade. Velociraptors crave salt (Something about mineral availability in the soil). Using a sharp razor blade precludes the animal from feeling the cuts as it licks. Their tongue is very vascular so they usually bleed out at the site but occasionally you have to track the blood trail to find 'em. This works only if you have the either sex permit.
