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.

contact the local fish and wildlife deptment they will point you in the right may have to take a hunter education/safety class first

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

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.
