Welcome to the site Husika and greetings from WNY. I don't know how much it costs for a license/permit but you could probably get any rifle caliber for the price range you mentioned. Some are much less than that too.

thx for the info but when i do look for a gun what is the most versitile rifle like if i want to hunt deer or Moose or beer it all depends on the bullet right? I want to make sure it is compatible. It havent been able to find any hunting clubs or rifle selling stores in the yellow pages. ill keep trying though but first I gotta figure out the license to own a gun and other to hunt deer.

to me the 3006 is the lightest caliber i would use on moose and its great for deer bear as well. 300 win mag, win short mag are great choices.

I would suggest you choose a caliber of at LEAST a .270 or higher.
I think the most common Caliber for deer, moose even Black Bear is the .30-06.
The 30-06 has a Large range of Bullets to choose from,
Most all of the rifle manufacturers produce good quality Weapons with great accuracy,
You should be able to easily find a .270 or a .30-06 in your price range.
Good Luck and let us know what you got when you get it.

Can anyone give me a few gun options with the 30'06 ? so i can read about them it would be a plus if it had scope that came with it but either is fine. mostly im looking for a good accuracy gun.

ruger 77, remington 700, winchester 70, savage 110, tons out there stick with a name brand. the combos tend to have a less than stellar scope on them so i would pick that out separate.
