I loaned my savage 220 to one of the QDMA mentees so my first time hunter is using whatever 20 gauge Culver gave me on Saturday.  I think its a CVA single shot.

I'm torn between my Remington woodsmaster 742 in .30-06, Savage Axis in .25-06 (New Purchase), Winchester Model 70 in 300 Win Mag(New Purchase) or my Savage 212 with a Nikon Slughunter shooting Remington Premier Expander.  Decisions, decisions, decisions.

There is absolutely NO decisions to make for me.  I will be using the same gun that I have been using since 1985 when I bought it.   A Remington 700 in .270.  I have other guns capable of taking deer, but I am not the type to be switching to something else since this gun has done the trick.  Some guys take gun A on a rainy day or gun B on a sunny day or gun C for brushy areas.  I am certainly NOT one of those people.  The same gun will get the nod no matter what.

I have two options... My light weight straight shooting Remington 257.... or my Cannon...... Rem. model 700 Ultra-Mag.

I'll tell you one thing.... every deer I hit with the Ultra-Mag... they always drop in their tracks!   lol

I’m taking my New ultra lite arms 7mm08. Fairly new rifle, haven’t taken a deer with it. I’m hoping the 10pt I passed on gives me a shot again.

Even though we are in a rifle area now I can not stray from my 12ga 1100 with a red dot scope for opening weekend. I will have my savage 30-.06 and new Ruger 6.5 creedmore with me as well but they wont come out unless the 12ga knocks one down Saturday.

I was surprised to see that a lot of hunters are using a 7mm-08. I thought I was a rare exception. My Savage Trophy Hunter in 7mm'-08 has downed several deer. All were 1 shot kills behind the shoulder shots. Recoil is very light and meat damage is minimal with the 7mm-08. It will be with me on opening day and throughout the gun season.        valoroutdoors.com

i probably won't even know where I plan on hunting opening day until Friday lol. If I'm home in shotgun the Ithaca Deerslayer 20 gauge. If I am in a rifle zone probably the Marlin 30-30.
