I have never in my nearly two decades as an outdoor writer ever had the privilege to hunt with anything as close to shooting perfection as my Krieghoff Classic Double chambered in 9.3 x 74R. I took this deer on my second day at Oak Creek Whitetail Ranch at a mere 52 yards. This deer marked my introduction to hunting North American game with a double rifle and I am forever hooked! I simply cannot imagine hunting big game on this continent, or elsewhere, with anything other than a Classic Double. The experience of actually “hunting” an animal rather than “shooting” one at a distance that requires a NASA inspired scope has rekindled my elation in the sport. Thank you for reminding me why I love hunting.
