    Due to whiny demand, all questions must have a trapshooting connection.

    So, what choke should be used for a loose tiger?

    Also, they're harder to stop when they're cold.

    Brian, it should probably be a rifled slug, choked cylinder.

    However, I would prefer a Rigby double, in .375 H&H.

    101voodoo - They're also harder to stop when they're pi$$ed!!

    Best,
    Dennis

    Brian- It is clear from other threads on this site that a light 7/8 oz load will do anything you want it to do.

    Brian,

    You didn't say if this was at 16 or handicap.

    Also, I believe that the correct procedure would be to catch it and bring it to the local shelter. I would check with Havahart to see if they make one size larger than the "You gotta be sh****ing me model." I think that it was SuperX that has vast experience with this process.

    Tightest choke ever made, to match your sphincter when you see it pick YOU out of the crowd.

    It would be a cylinder bore, WITH the just released "Dead Siberian" load from Hevi-Shot...............

    A 22 inch rifled barrel and an extended mag. for personal insurance. The 7/8 oz slugs would work (Pats correct) but I'd choose 1-1/4 oz slugs (more personal ins.?) :) Hap

    I think one of those street sweepers with 3" double O's might be just the trick.

    Don't know about tigers but several guides in Africa used to use Model 12s (without the plug of course), 00 buck, AND a leather suit for wounded leopard in heavy cover. Never had an urge to try that................JIm

    Pretty sad video to watch someone take down the king of beasts. Unless it was a man eater causing havoc in a village, there is no reason to take a lion. I never will understand "trophy" hunter mentality. As a longtime hunter, I eat what I take and sure as heck don't need a trophy head to stroke my ego.
