My favorite hog and brush deer rifle is my 1903 Springfield I had rebarreled to .35 Whelen and restocked (by someone else) in a walnut monte carlo stock that I've whittled down and painted and glass-bedded before putting an ivory bead-on-post front sight and Williams peep rear sights.

I've carried .303 SMLEs in full military trim for deer hunting and a No. 5 ("jungle carbine) varient for elk hunting in the black timber with 180g handloads.

I've gone coyote hunting with an AR-15 with plenty of M16 parts in it in the creekbottoms. (okay, not really a milsurp)
