We were sitting around the kitchen after an unsuccessful day of elk hunting up Camp Ridge. Our friend Dave had come out again from Back East and brought yet another magnum rifle. If I remember correctly the sequence went about like this: .340 Weatherby, .300 Winchester, .338 Winchester. One year in there he brought a .270 Winchester because he’d failed to draw an elk tag and would hunt only pronghorns.

After the steaks from Eileen’s elk - taken two weeks earlier with a .270 - the talk turned, as it often does, to rifles. It was then that she asked: “Why do men need bigger rifles than women?”

This was not an ingenuous question. At the beginning of her 15-year hunting career she started off with a “ladies’ rifle,” a .257 Roberts, but soon graduated to a .270 Winchester. With this she took 10 consecutive big game animals with one shot, including bull elk and moose, big whitetail and mule deer and a pronghorn buck at over 400 yards. All the while she watched bemusedly while I “tried” several larger calibers.

It's a Macho thing! just the male way of thinking,dates back centuries of the male trying to protect the female l guess !!not saying that because a woman has a smaller gun that she's more inferior, far from it i wouldn't like to be on the receiving end of a 300/270 or whatever no matter who fired it. Women can be just as deadly as men, does size really matter ladies! I'll leave that answer up to you. lol.

I think it has something to do with the size of their hands. MAJ
