What gun are you going to use this year?

I have killed many deer with my Winchester featherweight mod 70 in 270.

This year I want to try something different. I bought this CVA black powder Mag bolt 150 on sale.

and dress up like a mountain man. I passed up a deal on a Thompson Contender Hawkins 54 cal rifle. I wish I had bought the gun . That would have looked good with the mountain man outfit. I don't hunt for horns. I much rather hunt for the meat. I just wanted to do something different this year. Have that traditional look.

Show me some of your hunting rigs for this year.

I will be taking a Ruger M77 .338 Win Mag (215 grain Sierra GameKings) and a Ruger M77 Stainless Synthetic 7mm WSM(160 grain GameKings) to Colorado in six weeks for a cow elk hunt.

For deer I will use my Remington 700 .270 with 150 grain Sierra GameKings.

I have had a long standing love affair with the Winchester Model 70 and love my .257 Roberts. I believe it is the most beautiful bolt action rifle made and when they came out with the COYOTE rifle 3 or 4 years ago I immediately wanted one. (I have not gotten one yet)

Your featherweight looks great!

For big game hunting, there is only one rifle I need. Been taking it on every hog and deer hunt for the past 10+ years. No rifle I like better and no rifle I bought cheaper...

It's The Mosin Nagant M1891/30



Ain't it a beauty?

I'm using my Ruger SRH in .454 Casull this year for deer hunting. I'm getting a scope for it though I havent decided which one yet, I am leaning towards a Burris 3-12X. I think I'll have a good chance this year

I ran across a great deal on Winchester Model 70 in 300 WSM. I have not killed anything with it yet, so I must take it hunting (to get blood on it).

Yeah, I know that is strange.

I'm going to be hunting *possibly* next year with my K31, but that's only if I can find a hunters' education course, someone to take me hunting, and somewhere to get some more trigger time first.

And maybe a bigger fridge.

Likely is (hunting a la "DOOM3"?). But Motorcycle / Small Arms have a long and distinguished history. Had an "anti" buddy back in the dark ages that rode a BSA. He was appalled to learn what "BSA" actually stood for.

I am going to try a T/C Contender G2 in both .44mag and .375JDJ. I think that the .375 may be a bit much for a whitetail, but I don't like trailing one in the woods. Besides, when I ordered the SSK barrel for it, I was told that I will be ready for anything on the planet. We will see.

I am taking an Encore with a .450 Marlin barrel on it to hunt elk in October in Colorado.

Then I am going deer hunting in December in the Eastern Plains. I think I may take an old 1949 Model 70 in 30 06 but I may take a .243. Have not decided yet.
