    So what firearm do you hunt with?

    I use a Mdl 99F .300 Savage or my M1A for deer and elk. Remington 870 Wingmaster for small game.
    .

    Trying to get on the no fly list, one post at a time.

    I use a Ruger No.1S (Medium Sporter) chambered in .300 Win. Mag. for my big game hunting.
    After today, it's all historical.

    Mossberg 270. works for everything. but I use my Ruger 10-22 for the small stuff.
    BTW
    My 270 looks like crap from traveling through all the brush and sticker bushes. so I will spare everyone the picture.

    no semi auto rifles in pa.

    thats been my main gun for years, long before i put the thumbhole stock on it. .30-'06 with 180gn soft point round nose. very accurate.


    for bear, i have a mdl 700, also in .30-'06. i dont think i have any pics of that on hand. pretty standard, with a muzzle break on the front. i dont think its needed, but it was there when i bought it.

    this year, i want ot take this out for deer:


    (the bottom one)

    i out it together from a HORRIBLY butchered gew98 mauser i picked up for $25. the only part of the origional gun left is a highly modified trigger guard/floorplate, bolt body (replaced handle) and receiver. i want to take game with a rifle ive put together.

    after that, i want to scratch build a bolt action rifle. i mean, as in a block of steel and a barrel blank. i will purchace a scope, and probably other small parts like screws and swivel studs and such, but i want to thn be able to take game with a rifle i can say i truely made. maybe by the day that comes, ill be able/willing to give rifling a barrel a try and have it be a complete scratch build. thats off in the future yet though.

    Oh boy, what day of the week is it and what game.

    Turkey it has been Mossberg pump 20 gauge with scope but this year I have my Winchester semi auto I might take out instead.

    Squirrel depends on leaf condition, Marlin 60 with scope or S&W M41 pistol. Same two for rabbit.

    Deer Bow season it is Horton Pro 175 crossbow.

    Deer Gun season it has been Win 94 32 Win Spcl in the woods or H&R .308 in my stand.

    S&W M57 41 mag on my hip in the woods or Ruger Blackhawk 44 mag in the stand for those close up 'can't resist using the handgun' shots.

    Deer Muzzle Loader season it is Lyman Cougar 50 caliber inline.

    The only change I might make is if I ever get my reloading bench rebuilt I will load up some hunting loads for the M1 Garand and leave the other two on the rack. I already know it's accurate enough and it has been 38 years since I deer hunted with a M1.

    Since I'm in Florida now, I don't hunt much anymore - other than pigs - and for those, I use my M4.

    Tikka T3 "Super Varmint" .308

    The thing is like voodoo. hit exactly what I point it at every time I shoot. Only taken it out twice. Once at the range, and once in the field. Second time I ever shot it, the thing put food on my table. You could call me a satisfied customer...

    I've always hunted with a Savage 99 in .300 Savage. But It's been through 3 generations and I'd like it to be in nice shape for the 4th so I've retired it to the safe. I still take it out maybe once a year.

    Lately I've been hunting with a Marlin 30-30 for the woods and when I'm out on the power lines and want a little more reach either a Savage 111 or 110 both in 30-06. This year I may change it up a little and try out my Rem 799 in 7.62x39 in the woods and a Rem 798 in 30-06 for the power lines.

    Whatever you do for glass, spend the money for good quality. Leupold Vari-xII 3x9 is what I use, but there are many good manufacturers.

    It just depends really on the terrain and the quarry

    Dove: Browning Citori 12ga, Ithaca 37 20 ga, High Standard Flite King 28 ga
    Elk: Ruger .300, Browning A Bolt .338

    On the home front, deer with a Browning A5 or Colt Python in shotgun season.

    Have taken boar at a preserve in Pa. with the Python, Martin bow, muzzle loader, and in Texas, 270 Walther.

    I have been lucky enough to hunt south Africa, and have taken cape buffalo with Rem 375 ultra-mag. Other big game taken with Rem 338 ultr-mag and Walther 270.

    Used the A5 for years for duck, pheasant, rabbit and the odd quail.
