I'm not a hunter, but I know the deer grow awfully big up here, and .223 is marginal for deer anyway.

Look for a nice *used* .243 (use heavy bullets) or .308 bolt action, or .30-30 or .32 Special lever action. And there's nothing wrong with the old .30-06 if you find a good deal on one.

.357 or .41 or .44 Magnum from a rifle or carbine would also work -- and they are fun to shoot -- but long guns in those calibers tend to be expensive and hard to find.

Why not go gun shopping with FIL and let him help you pick something out?
