Beat me to it. The Howa and the Vanguard actions are the same, so pick which you like based on stock fit. I looked at Howa's very closely and was my leading choice until I picked up a T/C Venture. Give that one a consideration too.

Well, I guess now is the time for me to admit that I could not get this buck up into my truck alone this past season. First time I can remember that happening

A Buddy came up to help me load him. The rifle? A Marlin .444S made in 1980.

What a nice buck Turner! I'd need help too. Last January, while on sick leave for the heart valve up-grade, my son and I shot 2 mature SE. Ohio does. No the hunt wasn't doctor approved. Because I couldn't drag, the son ended up dragging both of the does together at one time. Mind you these were 130-150 lb deer. Son made my day, I got out of the house, filled our doe tags from the same ground blind, shot them 45 minutes apart, and he did the dragging.

Default Time to modify your pickup for hunting...

One of the guys that I work with is installing a head ache rack on his truck. That is one of those screens that keep stuff from hitting your head if you had to stop fast or were in an accident. He is mounting a winch on his so he can winch up his 4x4 that he will be carrying in the bed. That electric winch or a manual one would have made it a one person job if you had some form of ramps.

Thank you Sir! I happen to have 2 daughters and also two Sons In Law. One is 6'8" and was a world class athlete. I love to hunt with him (a literal deer draggin' machine!) but that's not always the case. Those young guys need to trade something for how we old fellas teach them how to field dress!!
