I also appreciate the kind remarks. I'm not in disagreement with the 30-06 points, heck I think I have 3 of them. I just wanted to expand your caliber choise possibilities. No doubt some of the newer bullet choises will surpass the old -06 in trajectory and speed, but in the real world won't kill them any better at your hunting ranges and for the vast majority of hunters. I currently shoot an old 300 sav model 99 and really enjoy shooting it. Many rifle calibers would work for you. Let us know what your new present is. I know you can still buy quality 270 and 30-06 for 20.00/box. Happy shopping.

Hey guys. Thanks again for all of your warm welcomes. I have attached some pics of some of the ol gals that I have run into around the farm. I also thew in a couple pics of some sheephead and blackdrum that me and my buddies snatched up from under the Emerald Isle bridge a few weeks ago. I have been a fisherman since I was a young boy but now that I have recently gotten into deer hunting, I just can't wait until the season opens(go figure). By then I will have purchased my rifle and scope and will be glad to let yall know what I decided on.

I wanted to say to Hunting Man that I just ran out of meat last week. My family and I definately got a few meals out of them. LOL

P.S. I am always looking for some good ol recepies so if anybody has one or two......lay em on me.

Default scopes

Today most hunting rifles have some type of scope this allows us hunters with less than perfect vision the ability to focus for a clear, clean shot at a target. The avg. deer hunter uses a 3-9x40 because the 3x power is low enough for low light transmissions and the 9x power gives you the magnification for longer shots. I also suggest multicoated lens, they reduce glare and loss of light due to reflection. We all hunt different areas and conditions, you need to take all of this into consideration to find the right optics for you.
