Caliber choice and rifle type are going to be strictly personal preference.
Here in central PA, most game is taken about 50-100 yards, unless hunting a field or gas/power line.
I've seen guys with Weatherby Mark Vs in 300 Weatherby Magnum sight in for 50 yards.

Personally, i don't want to carry something that long, that weighs that much, with that much recoil.

Recommendations from me would lean towards a bolt action.
Used Savage 10/Stevens 200, Remington Model 7, Tikka T3, Browning ABIII.

Again, caliber is purely personal.
257 Roberts, 7mm-08, 260 Rem, 280 Rem, 270 Win, 30-06, 308, 7mm Rem Mag.

My favorite hunting rig is my Stevens 200 in 7mm-08 AI, with a 4-12X42 Vortex Crossfire II scope. Light, handy, and it's going with me to Colorado this year to hunt elk.
When our own government declares itself as "tyrannical", where does that leave us??!!
